The Heat did their thing. I did pretty good on my NBA playoffs predictions this year.

You FINALLY speak to me!

Yes I did, not this year though but the other years and I was justified in doing so.

The Heat didn't have the chemistry to do it years back.

It's amazing how everyone comes together when teams win!!!

And guess what??? The Heat still SUCK! Mwahahaha!!!

Congrats to the Heat! Just too dominating. Their role players stepped up all series. Congrats to Battier for finally getting a ring after 12 yrs. I think what the Thunder went through this Finals is what the Heat went through last year. They will learn from this experience.

Congratulations Heat. Great performance. Congrats Lebron.

But some of these calls tonight....flagrant foul on Fisher when Lebron drove at him?!?! What? Guy moves his shoulders and gets a flagrant. And Durant with the dribble behind the back....lost the ball twice. OKC could have made a run.

Props to Miller, Chalmers and Battier though.

I never had much reason to speak to you recently.

This current incarnation of the Heat team has only been together two years. Year one, the finals, year two a championship, that's not a bad track record. Not trying to say 'I told you so' because I have no vested interest in Miami winning, but the notion of them winning doesn't seem so ridiculous now, does it?

Default Congrats to Wade and the Heat!

Well, I thought OKC would win. I like Durant, but can't stand that unabomber Harden and ball-hogging Westbrook. They got spanked good in this series. Maybe Westbrook will get a clue that launching up more shots than anyone else in the building does not a win make. Westbrook should also realize that OKC is Durant's team. Very surprised the way OKC rolled over. They have plenty of work to do in the off-season, and some changes to make.

I have to give credit where credit is due. LeBron is a monster and appears unstoppable at times. He's always a threat, and he has carried himself with a lot more maturity and professionalism. I still think he's overexposed and comparisons with other greats like Jordan are premature IMO. I also think that it is wasn't for the championship heart, spirit, and character that is the great Dwyane Wade from Marquette, LeBron would still be the same immature grunt who comes up short when it counts.

Kudos to Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat!
