^are you serious... westbrook is the reason they were in at least 2 games. yes he's been a shoot first pg but damn watching durant be so passive, standing at the 3 pt line waiting for something to happen was incredibly frustrating. why couldnt durant be as aggressive as westbrook? and it wasnt like durant was demanding the ball and westbrook wasnt giving it to him, he was flat out just standing around

and harden didnt show up at all.
i saw that in games 2-4 durant's effort was terrible. westbrook put up 43 and durant scored the quietest 28 pts i've ever seen. if its HIS team why was westbrook putting okc on his back and carrying the team? if its Durants team why wasnt he demanding the ball and scoring? terrible performance by durant all series long. the thunder deserved to lose.
awful finals.

Yup. I was going to post this myself.

I think Juwan Howard will now retire. Maybe he can show his ring to Chris Webber and Jalen Rose.

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!
Dwyane Wade stepped up, but this isn't about him, this is about Lebron maturing and stepping up in the big moments. No way should Wade get credit for this, look who the unanimous Finals MVP is.

STUPID QUESTION: Is this more about the Heat (the TEAM) winning their 2nd title or LeBron winning his first?

Looking back at the series and how close the first 4 games were, Miami was really 5 points from sweeping this series. I was really impressed with how Battier, Chalmers, and Miller showed up. These guys were big in the finals, well Miller game 5 but wow, nothing like waiting for the finals to kill it.

No you still need it ..... it was an aberration. 14-26 3-point shooting isn't a standard Heat shooting display...the reality is everything came together for them tonight. Look up the box score, it was a team effort in every sense of the word, and the Heat 'shooters' were about as hot as humanly possible.

That's not a stupid question, the way the media is portraying it, it's all about James getting his first ring. ESPN has called it LeBron's night. Pretty sure he plays on a team and there are plenty of other guys who have never won a title on the team..............

I actually said in the past that the Heat WOULD eventually win a championship.

I was only saying that they wouldn't be the unstoppable team that many of you guys were saying they were.

I knew they would EVENTUALLY win a championship.

Did I EVER say they wouldn't win a championship???

Some of you were acting like they would win 4 out of the next 5 championships.

If the Celtics where not Cheated out of game 2, the Heat wouldn't even have been in the Finals
