    With James cramping up,okc making a run, wade is just making winning plays. Hustling for loose balls, blocking shots, whatever it takes to win.

    From hero to chump in one dumb decision. Though Harden missed a lot of open shots too.


    Btw is anybody else tired of seeing LBJ's whining face every time he doesn't get a call?

    Down the wire Harden and Sefalious took big shots., if I was the coach I would be screaming get your hands off the ball. Both were crap all night.

    I think Durant ended the who's better debate tonight, 2 boards, 3 dimes, and looked like he didn't want to win a title in the 4th. Yep LBJ now rightfully owns that MVP award, (never thought he did not personally) bout to earn another.

    When Harden flops everytime someone touches him and Westbrook takes an open jumper and kicks his man in the air and looks at the ref complaining about not getting a foul called you can see how they stop getting the benefit of the doubt.

    Stepping in space and holding your ground to get an Charge called is one thing, but what Harden and Brook did is wrong. Im glad the refs didnt call the foul on Westbrook and Im glad they are sticking it to Harden.

    Durant Durant needs one more good player around him to win a title.

    Too bad - it's painful to watch Miami win. Does this annoying team have any fans outside of South Florida?

    I don't get it, an OKC player runs into a Heat player, it's a charge. Lebron tries to freight train somebody, it's a blocking foul. Lebron stops moving and someone slightly bumps into him, it's a foul on OKC.

    Will Lebron stand on a table like MJ?

    Well, congrats to Bron. Only took a super team and every other good team either getting hurt or choking, but you finally got your ring.

    Seriously though, this playoffs has sucked. Horrible basketball, star players getting hurt, and end it off with a crappy finals. Definitely not as good/exciting as last year's playoffs/finals.

    Proud Heat fan since the Zo/Hardaway days, and I live a few blocks away from Madison Square Garden. You act like this "annoying" team just materialized as an expansion franchise, and was gifted a great team.

    Miami sports fans suck though. They just do. Only turn up when their teams are winning - see: Dolphins, Marlins.

    I seriously have a Heat fan on my timeline talking about the 'long' 6 year wait they've had for another 'ship. Seriously...:roll:

    God, this sucks. The only reason I'm happy is that Juwan Howard got his ring after 18 seasons!

    I whole heartedly agree with you, I am a ny sports fan who roots for the heat. I hate all other Miami teams (jets and mets fan) that's why I stuck through the dueling butlers era (to get to 06) and the Beasley era (for what just happened.)

    Not sure that it's even about the Bulls - most of America would have preferred just about ANY team besides the Heat. Even the Durham Wildcats (last place in the not-so-famous British Basketball League).

    That is not fair to the entire team. Yes, Miami Heat's Big 3 has been a bit of a drama queen, but they have mostly shut up since the first season. Especially LeBron James.

    Lastly, this Miami Heat team has some quality professionals: Shane Battier, Udonis Haslem, Mike Miller, Juan Howard, and etc.

    I loved Scott Brooks's message to his team during the last time out: "... There's no reason to keep your heads down. They beat us fair and square. They are the champions. And we will walk over there, and shake each and every one of their hands..."

    My investment in playoffs went down after the Spurs were knocked out.

    As a neutral in the final I was hoping for a great series, Miami were just too good though, i'm not particularly keen on them but they deserved it.
