Let me add that Lebron is also a much better defender than Durant.
Game 6 against the Celtics, lebron took mostly jumpers, but he was deadly that night.

Good point.

6 shots in the paint (3 of those at the rim)
4 from 3-pt range
The other 15 were 15-18ft jumpshots.

The Thunder are MUCH better than the Celtics and if the Heat stand a chance, they won't win with Lebron taking too many jumpers.

What does everybody think about the foul by LeBron James on Kevin Durant in the final minute of Game 2? I personaly think it was a foul, but Kevin Durant could have made a much better shot.

It was a stupid shot by Durant which overshadows whether or not it was a foul.

You can repeat that a hundred times to yourself if it makes you feel better: there was no clear path to the basket, it wasn't a bad shot, and Lebron fouled him. Get a clue PLEASE.

Why waste energy in talking about whether or not it was a foul? It was a foul and nothing is going to change by constantly talking about it so it's better to look at the BIGGER REASON why OKC lost the game instead of dwelling on a missed call by the referee.

There was little energy wasted on my part debunking your post, rarely is much effort needed for that. You're spending a ton of energy saying it was a stupid shot by Durant. It wasn't, irrespective of the missed foul call.

It's not a conversation that's mentally healthy for a OKC fan to dwell on the stupid NBA refs. It's better to analyze the entire game and talk about what they could have done differently which would prevent someone from being irritated because of a obvious missed call from a crooked ref.

Lol....spare me please the mental health BS. I've already stated previously that the game wasn't won or lost on the missed foul call. The reality is OKC, for the second straight game, got themselves into a hole and needed heroics chiefly from Durant to get out themselves of. It worked in game one, it didn't in game two. I'm not dwelling on the missed foul call.

What I AM dwelling on is this ridiculous notion from you that Durant took a bad shot. No-one else but you is going on and on about what a bad shot it was. If you watch the play, you'll see that Durant caught the inbound pass and spun away from Lebron to take the baseline. THE ONLY thing that Lebron could do was impede his progress with his arm, ending with the foul no-call. Ok, the foul was missed, let's move past that. But please stop the BULLSHOT nonsense that Durant took a bad shot.
