Congrats Spurs! What a finals perfomance. I am thoroughly satisfied.

No hate for Lebron from me. He played well but just ran into a better team.

Now the long, boring summer of baseball begins.

At least it's a World Cup year.

Congrats, and well said!! They played with the heart of a champion as a team top to bottom. A well led, coached and oiled machined ran over the Heat with sheer talent in numbers led by Hall of a famers.

Will be an interesting offseason for the NBA...Congrats again on #5!

Feels like 2010 and 2011 in Omaha. It never gets old. This is why I love sports.

They could pull off the repeat. Maybe Duncan wants that first.

I don't think comparing LeBron to MJ is a good comparison. He's more comparable to the Big O.

Yes and he is playing very well and is healthy. He could get his 6th ring like Mike.

He's not the best player any more. Durant was better than him and by a sizable margin. Check the stats. Check the trophy case.

And LeBron is a quitter. Sure he'll go all in for a quarter, but then he quits. He always disappears down the stretch. Hell he was on the bench the last 6-7 minutes of tonight's game. QUITTER.

You really don't think LeBron is the best player in the world? Check what stats? Whether you like it or not LeBron is the best player on planet Earth right now. I like Durant too but there is a reason he was watching the finals fr his house this year.

lebron ended up with a great statline, but once again he had one great offensive quarter and was nowhere to be found when the spurs were putting the game away. 7 pt game at the half, lebron doesnt make a 2nd half shot until the spurs have a 21 pt lead. im not blaming him for everything considering how awful wade and chalmers were, but as great as he supposedly is the heat should have at least been competitive the last 3 games.

well deserved title for the spurs, they could have let choking away last year's finals bury them, but management improved the roster and the team refocused to right the wrong.

Lebron needs to go back to Cleveland and play with Kyrie and all that 1st round talent they are assembling .... kidding, kind of.

I could see the Spurs repeating. I haven't looked at the FA candidates but I'm guessing the core team is coming back and we all know they are going to draft well. I'm also sure they have some Euros stashed away overseas that are ready to come over to the states.

The heat cannot continue in its current form. Too many old players.

And its really sad to see a great player who relied on just being physically better than everyone else suddenly lose that athleticism. He can't elevate anymore and all those little moves that worked before are now desperate plays that don't work against even lesser players.

That is dwyane Wade.

The heat cannot win against elite teams with Wade on the court

I agree. Funny how a formerly elite player like Wade is less effective at a younger age than a guy like Manu Ginobli. Although Wade probably relied more on his athletic ability.

Pretty much this whole season exposed that Wade is a shell of his former self. He sat about 30 regular season games and can't play back to back nights anymore. Watching him get worked by guys like Dany Green in the finals is almost sad to watch when you remember how he used to be one of the most explosive players in the league. He was zero help in the finals. His defense was pathetic too. It's kind of ironic that Lebron came to Miami to finally get some help and now 4 years into it its a one man show again. This Heat team in the finals looked so similar to those Lebron James Cavs teams. The Heat came out and gave San Antonio their best punch in the 1st quarter yesterday but then when it was time to sub in players there was nobody to come off the bench for Miami since they started Ray Allen. The Heat got tired on defense and San Antonio just swung the ball around and made them pay.

pretty much every spur played better than they did in last year's finals, but the role players especially. even last night, parker/green go 7-22 as the starting backcourt, while ginobili/mills put up 36 points.

the heat went into this season losing mike miller while picking up beasley/oden. two young guys who had the potential to give the team something it lacked as well as some youth in areas they were lacking youth, neither move worked for the playoff rotation. their only two young guys in the rotation, chalmers and cole had no impact on the series.

i remember going into the season on numbers never lie they had a stat that no team had ever won a title with an avg team age as high as the heat.
