    ANYBODY BUT THE EAST YO!

    haha it would've been hard for me to cheer for the Lakers if they faced the Heat in the finals... I'd probably jump right onto the Heat Bandwagon in the last min.

    Not taking anything away from this Heat win (they earned it) but number of fouls called isn't the whole story. If half of the Heat calls are ticky tack and bang-bang calls (and obvious ones at that) then that makes it a bad call/officiating. The other team doesn't have to have more ft's but a bad call is a bad call.

    sure, but did it swing any games? I'm open to be proved wrong with any facts, not the opinions of these guys who stick pins in their Lebron voodoo dolls every game day.

    lol the local news just played a prerecorded Lebron/Wade commercial imploring FL to "celebrate with dignity". in other words, don't riot :lol:

    Well you did admit to game 4 being as such so I guess yes, it can swing a game one way or the other. I mean take away a few of those ft's in game 4 from the Heat, Westbrook wouldn't commit the stupid foul and the series would be going back to OKC.

    Yes, game 2. No call on Lebron in the last seconds. Swung the game.

    Otherwise, there were countless touch fouls that went against OKC that stopped potential runs, slowed the game, interrupted transition, and were deflating. It sucks knowing that if the edge of your jersey grazes the edge of a heat jersey the whistle will go... you stop being aggressive.

    Look, you won, but dont think the referees didnt help you. They definitely did.

    That's what he does. Another of the useless commentators who forgot that they were a gimmick and went wild.

    pissed okc did so poorly but glad lebron and bosh finally got a ring. hopefully this will give ibaka and harden the motivation to stay with okc and sign a long contract even without the max

    Enough already about the officiating. The Heat is the better team and deserved to win.

    Actually it's true about game 2. Thunder should have at least tied that, with a chance to win. Durant should have gone to the foul line, made the 2 pts, and tied it. Instead the foul call went AGAINST Durant. WTF even the announcers saw it was a bad call in the replay

    I don't think the Heat really qualify as the better team, they have better players but top to bottom there are other teams I'd rather have than the Heat. But they dominated the Thunder and deserved to win.
