Wow..these games have been very tough and competitive, so many momentum swings and dramatic plays. A great series.

The Heat are so hot and cold that I wouldn't ever put money on them or on a single game anyway. I'm cheering for the Heat but they can really pisss me off at times.

I'm just hoping that the refs do not unintentionally add to any potential controversy. If that game 2 no call with Durant (fouled by Lebron at the end of the game- potentially would have tied the game) happened in game 7 I would have had a heart attack.

Agreed Norcal

That was a foul definitely..but LeBron also receives the no calls too.

I would rather the refs stay out of the action and let the players play.

I expect to see OKC going to the rim a lot more in game 4

Will tonight be the night? The heat needs to step it up if they want it bad enough.

I am concerned about LeBron and Wade health. Those guys are really banged up.

If the Heat can get off to a great start and maintain a lead until the 4th period...I think the Thunder will start to fold.

The series isn't over yet. OKC is young and streaky. If OKC can win tonight, things will seem much different heading to OKC for the final 2 games.

If Lebron is able to be LeBron, I think the Heat will close it out tonight. I look for Miami's big 3 to all play well.

OKC FTW! So happy to see my home team in the big game. Need to run a little zone on LeBrone to shut him down like Dallas did last year and definitely not guard him with Harden anymore! A 3rd shooter would help too as KD and Westbrook can't do it all.

As many of you know I am a Heat fan that was a realist going into this final against OKC.I thought that OKC's fast break offense and offensive firepower would be too much for the Heat, especially after seeing the Heat struggle against weaker opponents in the Pacers and the Celtics. OKC's playoff run was spectacular and their bench play was phenomenal, but the Heat were able to overcome with great bench play and most importantly their overlooked defense. The Heat's defensive play throughout the season and the playoffs was what allowed them to beat the offensive juggernaut the Thunder is. So congrats to the Heat TEAM and organization, they accomplished what they set out to do in only their second year!

So please no more LeChoke, LeBro, not a team, etc. etc., give the Heat team and Organization credit for beating a favorite in the Championship.

Lebron seems like he has turned a corner, much more focused and mature. Jordan didn't win a title until his 6th season, and then it was lights out, so perhaps this is the start of a run for lebron. That being said, arod has a title and he's still a DB, so lebron can go either way.

Congrats to the Heat. I was hoping for a Thunder victory; but for the fans' sake, let's hope this turns into a classic rivalry with many more finals appearances for both teams. The Thunder unfortunately looked like a different team the past few games. It's hard to tell if they imploded or if the Heat defense really got to them. Defensively, the Thunder had nobody to stop Lebron's penetration. He's just too big, too strong, too quick.

That performance by the Heats was unreal. You always hear about the Big Three, but it was refreshing to the see the bench guys and supporting cast rack up double digits and knocking in threes.. Unbelievable.

Mike Miller's performance was stellar. He really put OKC on their heels when those 3's started raining down. I was really happy for all the older guys like Howard that finally got their rings to cap off their careers.

It was amusing seeing Barkley(I can't stand him) almost breaking down after realizing that some of those older guys now have rings...and he doesn't.

Hell of a game. Hell of a first four games. Game five...wow. I haven't seen a team put a beating on another team like that for a while. Sure there have been plenty of phenomenal individual games, but wow. Proud of my hometown. Proud of the team I love. Proud of my friends on the team. I haven't heard that arena that loud in a long time.

Partied very hard last night. Didn't get home till like 9 this morning. Looking forward to the parade on Monday.

I've met him several times. We're not on a first name basis or anything though.

I consider myself very lucky to know and to have met some of the people involved with the organization.

My boy LeBron FINALLY got himsself a ring.

I called it to all my boys that once he went to the Heat that they would get to the finals EVERY year, I predicted they would lose to Dallas (Dirk and Kidd were just too hungry and that was there last chance) and I said they would meet OKC in the finals this year and win! Now people thought LeBron was a beast now???? NOW all the pressure is GONE and he is going to put up MONSTER numbers! If they can land some free agents lets say Ray Allen and BRANDON ROY (he is coming back) then the Heat WILL GO Undefeated.

then the Heat WILL GO Undefeated.

I'm as die hard Heat fan as they come. I still remember watching the very first Heat game while I was sitting on the floor of my bedroom watching on a little 13" TV.....

Saying they will go undefeated is just silly. Maybe chasing that win total record for the year is possible, even that is sketchy in today's day and age though.

IMO we have not seen nothing yet! Lebron just learned that he is a dominate post player and he used that more towards the end of the season... SO if they could manage to sign Ray Allen, he would be cheap and willing to play for the Heat to get another ring, and/or even Brandon Roy, he is coming back from surgery/retirement so he will be cheap as well, then its possible (obviously undefeated is a little far fetched but then again so is a player like LeBron who hasn't even begun to reach his full potential.) And if Wade goes to Germany and gets the Kobe Surgery, is what we are going to call it now before they make it illegal, then watch out! Lets be more realistic and say they get Ray Allen... I would start Chalmers, Wade, Allen, LeBron, and Bosh (even though that wouldn't happen) how could you stop that? They would have to double LeBron & Wade in the post and that leaves Ray Allen to add to his NBA all time 3pt made total they would be virtually UNSTOPPABLE. I think that people were afraid to sign with the Heat just for that, the heat they would take for it. BUT now that the NBA is shaping into a bucnh of min heat teams and they already won the title people are going to sign on and continue something great! Yeah Jordan and the Bulls were good and all but Jordan physically is NOTHING to LeBron... but that is a whole different thread and debate.

IMO there really isn;'t nothing to debate though LeBron has FAR MORE skilled physically, not mentally, than Jordan. And once he figures out that he is basically a smaller more nimble Shaq and Dirk combined then the whole world will know what TRU basketball greatness it.

Only history will tell, Lebron has a LONGGGGGG WAYYYYY to go before we can start even making any claims, since b-ball is a TEAM sport I hope the Heat stay healthy enough through the years to put them in a position for the title. So far Lebron has only 1/6 of what Jordan has achieved. Although, Lebron is a better physical athlete, Jordan's skill, and b-ball IQ was better, but those can be worked on by Lebron, so I do believe he has the ability to surpass Jordan, but having the ability and doing it are.....well you know.
