    Just because LeBron won one won't stop the haters. I dislike LeBron and Kobe, but I respect their talents and what they bring to the NBA. And I applaud his one ring (so far), but doesn't mean I have to like him.

    Why Is Everyone Letting The Thunder Off The Hook?

    I think just like LeBron was let off the hook easily in 2007, the Thunder are allowed to use youth and inexperience as a crutch, since it's the first time they've gone this far, and they've shown maturity far beyond their years. Bsides, they were close in games 2, 3 and 4, just that they just slipped up in the end. That's much better than what LeBron did in his first Finals in 2007, so if LeBron and the Cavs got off easy then, so too should OKC and KD.

    Also, I think it's because of the unassuming (and more likable) nature of OKC's star, KD, compared to the flamboyant (self-proclamation as the Chosen One won't help one's image) style of LBJ. Since more seems to be expected of LeBron, he gets criticized more. But then again, he has no one else to blame for that but himself and his coddlers (Maverick Carter, Nike, the Cavs, etc). KD will eventually get his dose of criticism if he can't carry OKC to the title, but now isn't the time for that. Maybe if he's still ringless in 5-7 years' time.

    grrrr.. Spurs could have been a better match for this kind of miami team.
    But then i again, i cant say that this is a mismatch, since both teams battled their way through the finals, and is worthy of representing both division/conference.

    Congrats Miami Heat. Still bitter though! I was eyeing for spurs and celtics matchup, for i dont wanna see these both team who reached the finals to be getting their champioship shot this season.

    Default NBA Season 2012

    I'm just really happy for Shane Battier and Mike Miller getting to fulfill their championship dreams with the Heat. They might have taken a paycut or done it out of desperation, but they sure proved how valuable their skillsets could still be for any NBA team. Was really impressed with how Miller still managed to play all out, diving for loose balls and jumping high for rebounds, despite being in apparent pain

    Seasons over. Now time to move on & stop the hate on both sides.

    There is no need to compare LeBron with Kobe or MJ for two reasons: 1) Statistically, he is in between MJ/Kobe and Magic--alone. LeBron truly is in a league of his own. And 2) the GOAT debates are futile because Bill Russell (above with LeBron) has 11 rings--a number that may be as enduring as Joe DiMaggio's hitting streak.

    Congratulations to every Heat player and staff, all Heat fans and non-haters.
