LeBron James has no worries and not one, but two NBA Championships. Miami Heat completed the double up as they defeated a valiant San Antonio Spurs team by the score 95-88. Game 7 of the NBA Finals looked as if it would be a classic as the Game 6 played; however the Spurs seem to fall apart during the fourth period. For the Spurs, they missed their chance at becoming 2013 NBA Champions when Heat had their miracle come from behind victory in Game 6 of the NBA Finals.
LeBron James is best player in the NBA, and it depends on who you ask. Well, there is no debating that if he decided to retire tomorrow, he and his teammates will be 2013 NBA Champions. He would have claimed his second consecutive and NBA Finals’ MVP. He is the ultimate team player. James 37 points and 12 rebounds show once again, he does what is needed for his team to win. He not only will attempt to guard at least 4 positions on defense, but he will look like a lockdown defender doing it. The criticism should be a lot less for him, but I am kidding. He will continue to be the most scrutinized player the NBA has ever seen. Hey, he said he has no worries and should not have any worries. His team is the Miami Heat are 2013 NBA Champions.
Well, I never like to point the finger at one particular player, because basketball is a team sport. What happened to Manu Ginobili? He was the very definition of choke artist in the 4th period. He made ill-advised pass as he got caught in mid-air trying to find Tim Duncan only to have his pass intercepted by James. A bad shot to go along with the bad pass, it was evident the pressure got to Manu. Spurs’ chances at becoming 2013 NBA Champions were also hurt, because their star player, Tony Parker was held to 10 points. In Game 7, Tim Duncan looked like a young Duncan and not the 37 year old player who may had his last chance at a NBA title. Duncan finished game with 24 points and 12 rebounds. Duncan played well, but he may be having nightmares regarding the missed shot that would have tied the game with only 50 ticks left to their season. Spurs’ Kawhi Leonard maybe an upcoming star as he finished his first NBA Finals with 19 points and 16 rebounds.
The Heat’s victory was not just the LeBron show because there was a Shane Battier sighting. Battier’s 18 points on 6 three-pointers was enough to keep the Spurs off-balanced. You must always stay ready to play and you can look at Battier’s performance as evidence. D-Wade fought through all the adversity he had with the injuries to grit out his third NBA Ring. D-Wade finished the game with 23 points and 10 rebounds. 2013 NBA Champions is what Miami Heat can say boldly and Wade last few games are big reason why they will celebrate like they did last year.
Miami Big Three now has two NBA Championship rings to their credit and you have to think they will do what is needed to three-peat next season. It will be difficult task as teams will be better. For now, Heat can celebrate like they did last year because they are 2013 NBA Champions.
