2012 NBA Finals

Damn! No basketball or football... I hate this month and a half. At least until pre-season. Baseball is the hold over, but that is third on my list behind football and basketball.

Draft next week and summer league ball a couple after that!

Not that the strategy matters now, but I hated OKC putting Harden on LeBron. Harden's not a good defensive player in normal circumstances, much less against a guy like LeBron. I also disliked them doubling LeBron in the post. Make him beat you down there. Doesn't matter now though.

That's why I said they got outcoached by spoestra. he saw a weakness and used it. OkC (and brooks) used the coach singletary method of we will keep doing the same crap and eventully our will, will make it work.

Even if Brooks "outcoached" Spoels, the Thunder wouldn't have won this year. The Heat got major contributions consistently from guys like Chalmers, Battier, etc. If the Heat get solid play from those guys, they are the best team in the NBA. With Bron and D Wade's penetrating, there will be a lot of open threes. If those guys are hitting a high percentage of those, good night.

Wasn't saying they would have won, was just saying maybe they wouldn't have looked so stupid on defense. They were destined to lose, i mean durant and westbrook got stripped at halfcourt like 20 times (it seemed like) on fast breaks throughout the series.... That's supposed to be easy points.

LeBron is the first player in NBA history with at least 650 points, 200 rebounds and 100 assists in a single postseason.

Scoring 25 points in 14 straight games in a single postseason. LeBron has done that twice, in 2009 and his current streak. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, nobody else in NBA playoff history has done that even once.

What a beast. The greats always seperate themselves from others in what they do when it matters the most, in the post season. This guy just dominated the whole post season, put the team on his back when they were down 3-1 and all the momentum was with Boston, and then had a triple double in game 5 to win it all in the finals.

I dont get how someone can still hate on him

I don't get it, old tired Boston drug the Heat out 7 games, then the Heat go through the Thunder in 5. WTF.

Sports doesn't work like that, man. That's like saying if team A beat team B and team B beat team C, how the HELL could team C EVER beat team A.

And look back in '08, the Celtics got pushed to 7 games in the first 2 rounds, then closed the last 2 rounds out in 6. There's no logical pattern in sports. Besides, in 6, maybe even all 7, games of the Boston series, Bosh was either not playing or very limited.

Plus Boston has Ray Allen, and Ray Allen >>>>>>>> Kobe Bryant.

Well earned. I thought I'd be pretty "meh" about this group winning a ring since they formed the team in the way that they did, but they won it in a way that I respect. They scrapped their asses off.

Props to LeBron for finally putting it all together, especially between the ears.

$100 says that this isn't the last time these two teams meet in the Finals in the next 5 years.

IMO, people saying LBJ joined an incredible team are way overblowing that sentiment. Yes, Wade has been an elite player in this game, but doesn't COMPLEMENT LBJ that well since he does the same things and is pretty much redundant (if, instead of Wade, they had a player that wasn't quite as talented, but a better complement, such as a Ty Lawson, or even a Marcin Gortat, I think they'd be even better). Chris Bosh is incredibly overrated and that money would have been WAAAAAY better spent adding 2 $9M/yr guys. And then the rest of the team is CRAP. Sure guys like Miller and Battier and their moments hitting some 3's in the Finals but all regular season and the first 3 rounds of the playoffs, guys like Miller, Battier, Haslem, etc. played like the old, way past their primes, body breaking down guys that they are. No good PG, no real center, etc. Plus even Wade was very inconsistent in the playoffs. It's not like LBJ formed/joined a team that had Chris Paul at guard, Dwight Howard at center, Kevin Love at PF, studs coming off the bench, etc. In short, Bosh is overrated, Wade is redundant, rest of team for the most part played like crap all year. The hype of that "superteam" is way overblown.

That team is a really good team

I mean, ya, they won the championship, but it was LBJ that makes them a really good, championship winning team. People act like this is a championship caliber team even without him and he just hopped on board for an easy path to a ring.
