    Turned it off.

    Cant take the bad decision making, shit defense and bad coaching adjustments anymore.

    James Harden has been a nightmare.

    Turning point of the game was Durant's steal and then sloppy transition to lose the ball again, give up a 3, then another on the next possession. Lead went from 5 (and what could have been 2 or 3) to 11 in about 30 seconds.

    OKC has been deplorable on the fast break all series.

    Seriously. If he would have taken that charge he would have flown twenty feet. This is why I hate watching basketball, their rules are too excessive and too poorly enforced. How about before a fucking big call like that flagrant you review it? Hardly excessive force, Fish *still* got pushed back.

    One thing I will never understand. How is that that the average fan could tell you NOT to put Durant one James but it took four games for a professional coach to figure that out? And how hard it ti to understand that Fisher should not play extended min? Particualrly when they have been playing much better with him OFF the floor?

    Fuck this team shitting the bed.
    Try actually running some fucking plays. Fuck iso, and if you must iso, why not go iso with THE BEST SCORER IN THE LEAGUE???
    Durant neesd to get a little more Kobe in him and start smacking a fool.

    Yeah, one problem the league has, imho, is they don't properly officiate the super strong, athletic players. It happened with Shaq, continues with Lebron and Blake.
    If a guy like LeBron runs you down like a linebacker and leads with the forearm, what are you supposed to do? You can't get in front, cant slow him down without being called for a foul, but if you just give him the lane he gets 50 a game.

    Same with Blakes off arm forearm smash/dunk.

    That flagrant was a terrible call. But what's new? The officiating in this series has been a joke.

    Hey guess what... start of the 4th, Lebron has 1 foul.

    The rules are too hard to enforce and the game is too fast.

    One thing about Miami tonight - their offence is balanced. At the moment, their leading scorer is Matt Miller! Followed by Bosh and then James. And James is having a monster night even without scoring loads (13 assists early in the fourth)

    that goes both ways. Lebron and Shaq get hammered so much without getting a foul because the hits dont appear to affect their momentum. Shaq in particular got fouled almost every time he went into the post but they called very few of them

    What the fuck is with his like 10 three pointers? This game is ridiculous. The heat got their lucky charms in right before the game.

    lets give Lebron his due....

    he's the best all around player in the NBA.... and with this championship.... he can be in the consideration as the best all around player ever.

    From the sound of it looks like there will be a champion announced tonight

    Good to know that there are greater powers at play

    LBJ getting a ring before KD

    All your complaints on the bad foul calling :lol:
    What did you think??

    you haters are hilarious. OKC is "beating themselves" again? this is a good old fashioned ass whupping. I'm not talking shit, just calling out the facts.

    terrible officiating? as I write this, OKC has MORE free throw attempts than the Heat. the only absolutely horrible call on either side was the Fisher flagrant.

    ^I'm pissed about the bad officiating

    but what I'm happy about is that lebron is winning and proving you win and dominate a game without having to play "hero ball".

    Lebron finally grew up and stopped believing his own fairy tale. He's played like a champion and led his team, I have nothing but props for him this finals.

    The officiating didn't decide the series.

    The Heat is a better team than Oklahoma City.
