Ladies & Gentlemen... your World Champion OKC Thunder!

Really though, it was a good series. Thought Spurs would be too much, but OKC's big 3 all had another gear. Their energy on defense, running out on shooters, and all the deflections & steals really took the Spurs out of their game. Fisher & Perk w/ the veteran leadership helped seal the deal. Good for that franchise.

OKC has been impressive they beat the defending champion mavs, lakers, and the spurs and now they got homecourt in the finals. I wonder if Tim Duncan will reconsider retirement.

they are f****n pathetic and borderline mentally challenged. the point is that we gave the spurs hell here in la with cp3 and BG at less than 80 percent. they had all their players and had kobrick choke worse than the heat which cost them 2 crucial games. yet they still think hes the best player in the nba. smh. now ill root for boston because if they win, they will increase the lead they have over the flakers in titles by 2. lol.

Love to have Harden bring that act to the Clippers. With Him, Blake and CP we'd have flop city baby and go a mighty long way in the PO's.

Doris Burke: "What can you do to stop LeBron?"

Doc Rivers: "We've got to make some baskets, so we can set our defense"

Doris Burke: "What can you do on the offensive end to make baskets?"

Doc Rivers: "Well, that goes to the other end... we've got to get stops and run"

And some people on here treat coaching like it's some mystical jedi power. That sounded like vintage Del Negro to me.

I wanted Spurs v. Celtics in the finals for the veteran matchups. But now w/ OKC in, I think Miami matches up better with them. Two highly athletic teams, Lebron v. Durant, Wade v. Harden, Westbrook/Bosh having advantages at their positions. It's going to be a lot of running and gunning in transition.

Going to say it again for emphasis... James v. Durant.

The two best players in the game, IMO. I go back and forth between whose on top, and it really doesn't matter.

Lebron saved spoelstra's job today, the lebron vs durant matchup I wanna see is still alive. The two best small forwards in the game today.

Lebron is better than Durant. KD is the better shooter, but until he can shut down all 5 positions on D he's not sniffing that #1 spot.

im calling it, lbj shuts down durant. hes a great defender. and the heat win in 6. but all the games will be close. could go either way, but lebron will go on a dirk nowitzki type of run in the finals.

I like Durant and Lebron, and I WOULD BE excited for either team if they win it............BUT...........honestly, Fisher's stupid A$$ is ruining it for me............I feel like the Lakers win if Fisher's on the team. His crybaby flopping a$$ should be in Houston. I wish Maynor never got hurt. I hope some miracle happens and Miami wins just so Fisher loses.

Lebron and Wade have to keep attacking the rim. Put pressure on Durant, Harden & Westbrook to play some defense.

I think miami is going to win three straight to win this series, that 2-3-2 format hurts the thunder it should be the same format as the other series.

I agree. I think 2-3-2 format is stupid as f***. Home court advantage? The away team pretty much has home court advantage in a 2-3-2 format. It's rare for a team to reach the NBA Finals and just get the crap kicked out of them in recent years and that wishy washy home home away away away home home format needs to be replaced.

I can understand wanting to give your guys maybe some extra rest so the last 3 games, if it goes that far aren't played here, then there then back to here again, but it's garbage.

And on a side note, the Heat were getting a lot of tickle fouls last night. Granted I saw a few calls go the Thunders way but a lot of the Heats layups that were and 1's should not have been called fouls. I really hope Miami loses, every time basketball season starts I am pumped for the Clippers but I almost puke when I remember that Miami has a team and whose on it.

Wade made all the small plays, deflections, running out on shooters, grabbing defensive rebounds and keeping the ball in play.

Westbrook was getting his all night, shot well, but took 11 MORE shots than Durant and basically took his teammate out of the game.

if anyone deserves to win a title its lebron. im glad they are only a game away from the title. all the stupid ass jokes from flaker nation regarding lebron not having a ring will cease to exist. we wont be hearing those as often.

If anyone deserves to win a title it's Karl Malone, John Stockton, Charles Barkley etc.

Lebron is a joke and can't carry a team and be the LEADER like everyone thought he would be. Lebron puts up ridiculous numbers but is NOT the #1 guy on a team. He's the Glue,or Super Glue that holds everything together, he needs someone as talented as he is to take him over the top ( See D Wade ).

I don't care what anyone says, they got to the championship by a fluke, D Rose blows out his knee in game 1? Bulls would have put a serious beating on the Heat whether they beat them or not. Our guys injured and battered before we play SA, shortened NBA season, Celtics losing Bradley for the rest of the playoffs, Ray Allen injured. This entire year was injury fest and basically the Perfect Storm for the Heat to roll into the NBA Finals.

If Indiana re-signs Hibbert and can land Gordon or a big name FA I have 0 doubt they will be the 3 seed or better again next year and take out Miami or Chicago. They've got plenty of cap to do so.

lmao. where do i start. lebron is the one carrying the heat this post season. you definately sound like a lebron hater, which is fine but its clouding your assessment. "lebron is a joke" are u serious? last i checked the spurs won one of their titles in a shortened season. yet no one says that their title is a fluke. lebron is not my fave player, but i give credit where it is due. he is balling, almost like nowitzki did last season. whats also helping him is that this heat team is better than last season's team because chalmers and battier are playing well. i dont care who gets injured, a title is still a title. i will now enjoy the flaker fans talking s*** about how kobe still has more titles than lebron. i guess thats the only thing they have to make themselves feel better. i also will feel good that fisher wont win a title. cant stand that motherf****r, especially for being a flaker flopper. about the pacers, u seem to forget that darren collison is a rfa as well. they have cap room, but not as much as u think. consider collison will easily ask for 5 years at about 9 million per season and hibbert will easily get 5 years 70 million at the very least. thats 23 million. add the 10 million west makes, the 15 million granger makes and the rest of their contracts, they might be close to the cap. this was their best chance of making an impact in the east, considering they were ahead of the heat in their series but choked. i do agree that this might be the only title the heat win because in all honesty, i feel if the clips add the sg they need such as courtney lee or ray allen, add a solid backup center thru trading mo and can add a solid backup sf, we will be the team to beat next season, not the thunder or the heat.

So much for Cleveland winning a title before lebron james, he won regular season mvp, is going to win finals mvp and a title finally and possibly gold medal this summer. Hopefully the doubters give him credit now and stop with the hate.

When he wins a ring in an 82 game season and plays the entire playoffs then people will stop hating. Until then, he'll be criticized. This championship means nothing.

So if okc would of have won the championship then it would have meant nothing because they didn't play 16 more regular season games. That 82 games excuse is pretty lame this season was actually more grueling that an 82 game season, more back to backs and less rest. If lebron would have performed like he did last year in the finals this year and wade was tearing it up then yea you can say lebron doesn't deserve it. Lebron has been the most consistent and best player on the heat these playoffs, wade has been up and down. Injuries are part of the game and the bulls would have not beaten the heat.

Whoever wins this year to me, doesn't matter. Multiple teams suffered devastating injuries during the season and playoffs and a lot of these teams were hampered by badly beaten players that were struggling with injuries. I credit this to either the perfect storm for both teams in the Finals and the condensed basketball schedule.

Heat win next year, good for Lebron. I still want to see him in a Cleveland uniform and win one. I always loved Lebron but when he looked a little terrified and nervous and said "I'm taking my talents to South beach this summer and going to play for the Miami Heat" a piece of me died. I am not a Cavs fan but I really thought he could do it there and Cleveland really needed him.

WTH? It's MUCH harder to win a title in a condensed season dude. FAR less rest. If anything this title is more valuable in my eyes.

Congratulations to Lebron and the Miami Heat for winning the champion ship this year. I respect great players, no matter how they act off the court, and Lebron is definitely one of them. By the way, no one deserves a championship. You actually have to go and win it.

All the Lebron haters can finally shut up. He is by far the best player in the league and he deserved this championship more than anyone else.

Congratulations to the Heat and to LeBron... I hope he keeps up the humility he found this year. I for one found the turnaround in his public persona very admirable.

And if Spoelstra can win a ring... Vinny sure as hell can, too!
