Oh c'mon man. Look, I think you can still say the Heat deserve the title and at the same time say that clearly, the Spurs did more damage to themselves on multiple levels than vice versa. Don't be so PC here man, c'mon. Assuming you watched all of the games and especially game 6, you can't seriously be straight and tell me you didn't see just how many endless mistakes there were on the Spurs part. I mean like Real Deal and some others said, it was so bad it almost seemed rigged!

 

I guess I won't change your mind, but I'm disappointed you don't seem to wanna' acknowledge that.

 

Like I said, both teams had their chances.  

 

Regardless if you see it as the Spurs doing damage to themselves, the Heat took advantage of their opportunities. 

 

The Spurs shot themselves in the foot plenty of times, but so did the Heat and the Spurs did not take advantage of those miscues.  In game 6, LeBron turned off the ball 3 times in the final minutes, the Spurs responded with missed free throws, lack of rebounding, and bad defense. 

 

Tonight, Mario Chalmers with two missed free throws, that turnover on the inbounds play, and bad shots were responded by the Spurs with turnovers and inability to make gimme shots. 

 

Both teams had their problems, the Spurs especially in game 6, but I am not going to act like the Heat played perfect basketball and the Spurs were the only team to make mistakes.

2 titles, 2 finals mvps, 25ppg 11rpg, 7apg in the series

 


You don't have to argue everything bad about Lebron.

 

We get it, you like him, he's great.

 

But realize everybody isn't going to see him in the holy light you see him in. Opinions, everybody got one.

Of course not. Of course both teams make their own share of mistakes and have their own share of successes, but the point is I just think it's painfully obvious the Spurs made more of their own mistakes than the Heat, but I won't go any further cause you already know well where I stand and we're just not gonna' see things on the same level obviously so there's not much of a point in going any further and that's fine.

Didn't watch the game (had class). Staying away from ESPN this summer until free agency and draft day trades.

I hope to god every team begins to build around a big man. I hope to god there are some high school coaches out there coaching the hell out of their 6'10 guys and getting the right scouts for them. I want to revert back to a big-man dominated league. These past two Miami titles have been dominated by ball handling players and shooters.

If Dwight Howard is the best we can do as a league as far as producing a big man then we have a huge problem.

I guess I'm just scared of seeing the Heat get even stronger, giving less and less teams a chance.

LeBron James will NOT leave the Miami Heat.

The way I have been seeing it, the league has been shifting from play inside out, and teams are now playing off shooting and athleticism.

For all those who thought Allen's three was a killer, just imagine what King's fans were thinking after this.

Lebron is great, he came up HUGE in game 7 of the NBA Finals. Struggled the first couple of games, then finished strong. Now you know that he has 2 rings to go with those 4 MVPs he's thinking "uh-uh, you can't tell me nothin'". He very likely could tie or pass Kobe in the hardware department. Unlike 2 years ago, now he's proven he can come through on the biggest possible stage and has nothing but confidence and swagger. Depending on how this offseason turns out, I wouldn't be surprised to see him collect a third ring next year. I hope it doesn't happen, I'll be rooting against him again, but you gotta respect his game now. 2-time champ.

What an epic series that was very entertaining to watch as a fan of the game. For everyone who thinks the Heat will continue to roll through the league make sure you stay tuned at watch next season. They will face the toughest test they have ever come across. There's a reason we're the only team that has 3-peated in the last 30 years. It's not easy to do and it gets harder and harder each and every year because other teams want to beat you that much more. Think about it. We were in the exact same position the Heat were in 3 years ago when we went back-to-back. We made the finals three consecutive seasons, lost the first one and bounced back to win the next two. Exactly what the Heat just did. Then we went on to get swept in the 2nd round next season. That was Dirk's time to win a ring and he and the mavs took advantage of it. That could very well be the case with whoever plays the Heat in the playoffs next season. D. Rose and the Bulls will be back. Granger and the Pacers will be back, hopefully next time with Granger actually in the lineup. Congrats to the Heat they deserved to win but the rest of the league will be ready for them next season. Hopefully we'll find a way to be there at the end next time.

As much as everyone here is a little ticked off about Lebron getting another ring, we have to remind ourselves we're Laker fans. We have 16 banners hanging in our building and half of the greatest basketball players have worn the P&G. Lets not feel sour about another team's success (unless its the Celtics hanging #18). Time to move on to Laker off-season, reload, and get our shot at the Heat in the finals after the Spurs and Thunder's failure.

He is 21. The man has a very bright future in this league.


That is a career defining moment
He makes both, nba title

He has a great career ahead of him, but, he missed out on a title with a missed ft

LeBron moves into the top 10 of all time for me with this win.

 

3 straight Finals, a title defense, and one of the best Game 7 performances I have ever seen. I've seen him get into that shooting zone only a few times in his career, and the fact that he was able to summon it in the biggest game of his life is unbelievable. Hell of a performance by LeBron, especially that cold-blooded and extremely clutch shot to put the game away at the end. I don't think I've ever seen such a great performance from him . Forget facilitating and getting roleplayers involved, when you're the best player in the world it's up to you to get your team the win when they need it the most. And LeBron delivered in the face of elimination in the two biggest games of his career.

 

Just an amazing finish to this series for him.

The only problem here is that I now have to stay away from any sports media until November. I had the Euro Cup and the Olympics to keep me busy last year, but I'll have no such luck this time around. :eh:
