I was hoping to see more basketball (sigh). But I'm glad Lebron was able to get his ring. Now the haters can get off his back.

On to London...

Fisher showed some life for OKC but his defense is godawful at this stage of his career.

I reiterate my comment that Miami appeared to break the will of OKC in the 2nd quarter of game 4.

And lastly, Westbrook at 4-20 needs to settle down. If he can mature and be less erratic that will take OKC further.

He has to feel like a "wet newspaper" because of how he purposely joined OKC so he could get another ring and ended up looking foolish. I doubt if they even sign him back because he did nothing in this series along with Ibaka, Harden, Perkins, and Collison.

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

I don't recall all the comments you made 2 years ago, and don't care enough to look that far back. But you said this to me two weeks ago:

"Hi Greg, still picking the Heat to win it all?"

as some kind of sarcastic little jab. Well, yes I did pick them to win it all, and they did. I don't recall you ever saying this team would win it all, and again don't care to look that far back, but it was rather humorous seeing you on the Heat bandwagon the past week knowing how you revolve around the Lakers.

You don't get it.

I made that sarcastic remark because you chose to put me on ignore.

I picked the Heat because I can't STAND the Thunder.

The only team I hate more than the Thunder are the Spurs.

You also picked the Heat to win it a few years back and you were WRONG.

I still love the Lakers more than the Heat and that will NEVER change.

I knew the Heat were capable of winning at some point within a few years.

I never doubted the Heat could win a championship but you guys were acting like they would just steam roll over everybody.

Quit trying to fight with me and just enjoy the Heat's championship.

Yes, because you made some comment about hating the Thunder because Harden looked like Black Jesus, and went down the list of insulting Westbrook and Durant's appearance. I've got as much a sense of humor as the next guy, but it wasn't something I cared to see anymore from you and you were put on ignore. Obviously, I've since taken you off.

As for being wrong about the Heat, I said they'd win a championship. I don't even recall saying that they'd win it the first year( though making the finals the first go-around isn't a bad result, is it?). I distinctly remember saying their chances of winning it all were probably better the FOLLOWING year( in other words this year), because they'd have had a year of playing together. So, I was wrong about nothing. I said the Heat would win, and they did. I don't recall ever saying they were potentially the greatest team in NBA history.

In any event, you could have made any sarcastic remark but chose to randomly throw in the 'Hey, still think the Heat are winning it all'. Hey's it's all good, a little trashtalk on your part, but don't act all innocent about it.

Someone else called Harden the unabomber in this forum, you should put them on ignore too.

I still stand by by comments describing their appearance.

I saw your comments and I acted accordingly, taking into account some of my posting history with you. The 'unabomber' commentary is equally as assinine from whoever said it.

As for your views on their appearance, whatever.

.... I was being sarcastic.

Personally, I couldn't give two sh*ts about LeBron or the Heat.

I think this was the best case scenario for the Heat. They played flawlessly and you still never got the impression until half way through game 5 that they Heat were on track to take the series.

Good defense (although the Thunder had open shots most of the series and couldn't hit)

EXCELLENT FT shooting- they got some good calls and took advantage of that on the line.

Bench Play- You will never see that again. Chalmers played out of his mind in one game, Battier had a game like that too, Mike Miller's turn was last night (with a bad back).

Lebron was near perfect.

Wade played much better than he ever has all season.

Meanwhile- I think you could say 4 or 5 of the Thunder's key performers were given opportunities to shine and played horribly.
