Disgusting. OKC throwing another game away. That had to be the worst 3rd quarter of basketball EVER in the playoffs. Period.
And once again, James is getting NOTHING called on him. He's driving to the basket just knocking people down and plowing into them and "no calls". On the other end of the floor, OKC is getting one offensive foul called on them after another. Sheez......

If anything, the Thunder got away with more from the refs in this game. Sorry, but I'm just not buying all this complaining about the referees that has littered the internet throughout this series. There are a lot of fouls that are not called and non-fouls that are called in every game, just as in football. The Heat kicked Oklahoma City's ass tonight, period. No excuses. They were up 27 before taking their foot off the throttle and still won by 15. Referees made no difference in that.

Congratulations to the Miami Heat for a well-deserved championship victory that was the product of hard work, dedication, and even introspection. Congratulations to LeBron James for achieving the first step in his goal, and for joining the fraternity of players that won the league and championship MVP in the same season, and for averaging a double double (plus 7.4 RPG) on the biggest stage of his career.

i cant really remember an NBA finals where the refs were less noticable. and absolutely not a part of the story or outcome.

then again, i remember rooting for the chris webber led kings to beat the lakers and swearing it was fixed the entire series.

this week the refs made the typical missed calls/bad calls that happen in every single nba game. it was par for the course and pretty even throughout.

wade was penalized for diving and sliding for a ball as if he went after someones knees and chop blocked.
fisher was given a flagrant for a simple foul on lebron charging the lane because he braced for the hit and didnt allow for himself to be steamrolled and flattened. = 2 bad calls that went each teams way.

pretty bummed my old sonics didnt win but happy for james. screw cleveland browns and their fans. the browns suck, and the cavs owner is a turd.

What started off looking like it might be a great series, really fizzled out quickly. Would have been much more exciting w/the series going back to Oklahoma City.......the NBA offices can't be happy it only went the 5 games. Thanks to the lackluster play by OKC in games 4 and 5, this won't be included in remembering the "best" finals.
Although Miami definitely won the series, i can't remember in recent memory a team "losing" a series as opposed to the other team winning the series as this one.
Game 1 : OKC wins
Game 2 : OKC loses the game more than Miami wins
Game 3 : OKC loses the game more than Miami wins
Game 4 : either side could make the case that OKC lost the game or that Miami won it
Game 5 : Miami wins. No question. A dreadful perfomance from OKC.

As far as the refs go, no one's changing my mind. James can do whatever he wants. He can just straight up plow people over and go right to the basket and not be called for anything.
But you know what? Thats the NBA. That all really started with Michael Jordan. Remember him taking 9 steps with the ball and that was "OK" ? And the trend will continue with whomever the next league superstar is after James is gone. Not much different than Tom Brady gets treated in the NFL. I guess thats just the way it is.

I will say this as well. As much as i like OKC....they weren't the team to beat Miami. Beyond their 3 stars, their other players and bench are substandard and it really showed when watching people like Chalmers, Miller, Cole, and Battier step up. OKC had none of that. (i'll give Fisher somewhat of a pass given his age)
Boston had a better chance of knocking them out. San Antonio would have made it a much better series, and with their defense, i think they would have won this series.

TRH, I agree with you about your last point. As a fan of Miami, I was rooting for the Thunder to beat the Spurs. The Heat match up better. They can match their athleticism, but are also more experienced and better defenders.
