    Oklahoma City has three guys that have been able to score the ball against the Heat this series. Four if you want to count Fisher.

    ^ the officiating has been bad, but in the end OKC still didn't have the poise to actually close out some very winnable games.

    think about last year with dallas being beaten down by teams, officials, and lesser personnel - but they never would fucking give up and kept their poise and game plan and came back from 15pt leads in the 3rd and even 4rth quarter against LAL, OKC, and the Heat....

    next year the longer season will be a detriment to the Heat (wade breaking down, drama from players like chalmers) and teams with big front lines exploiting their glaring weakness (boston forced them to 7 games with fucking KG and brandon bass :lol: and nothing else down low).

    OKC just tasted some humble pie and will be pissed next year...

    dude needs a few more.

    btw, very classy, lebron telling mashburn chalmers to cut it out with his gestures to the crown before the game was over.

    ^^ Speaking of Chalmers, does that guy get treated like shit by Wade and James or what?

    Credit to Lebron for finally getting a ring and not choking (that's a compliment, really). Difference maker is definitely Bosh, put him in the starting 5 and they win. Big props to the other guys finally stepping up tonight too, Miller with his broken back with 23pts, Battier & Chalmers with their 3's. I must say, they earned it. And good thing too because if they lost, Spoelstra would probably get all of Rileys grunt and get fired.

    OKC showed their age and inexperience, they collapsed and broke once the calls didn't go their way. Still a bright future for these guys but this year is Miamis.


    Queue the stupid dancing!

    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[/quote]

    Lol wut?

    LeBron knocks fools around like he's Ray Lewis and never gets called.

    honestly, I'd give you game 4 as one sided in favor of the Heat but as far as the rest of the series, if the officiating was terrible it hasn't swung any of the games. and the referees started this game with a vengeance in giving calls to Westbrook.

    the free throw disparity between the two is less than 10 before you count game 5. do you honestly think the officiating swung the series?? facts, not bias please

    Right, because they tried to make up for their awful performance.

    I will be the contrarian here and say that it has turned the series. G2, last seconds, lebron fouled Durant... that right there could have made it a 2 - 0 series.
