2012 NBA Champions :: The Miami Heat

Jun 22, 2012

The Miami Heat have defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder 4 games to 1 with a 121 - 106 victory in front of their home crowd to bring Miami it's second NBA title. So the long awaited question has been answered... Lebron James can finally be recognized as the best player in basketball.

Lebron was the only candidate for MVP and he won it with ease leading his team with almost 30 points per game. Throughout the playoffs, he took over games single-handed scoring crucial buckets with the Heat on the verge of elimination against the Indiana Pacers and the Boston Celtics. He also averaged 6 assists, 2 steals, and a .500 shot percentage to dominate OKC.

Thunder fans should be a little bit shocked. After the first game, everybody was thinking that this would be their series. How quickly things turned. What happened? Well besides Lebron taking over, you could say that the Thunder's youth might have hurt them. Russell Westbrook made some crucial errors in the last few moments of some close games. He missed an imbound pass in sealing victory for the Heat to run out the clock in game 3. And then in game 4 he made a mistake fouling Mario Chalmers with seconds on the shot clock to give the Heat to easy free throws to make the game unreachable. Russell needs to learn from those mistakes so the Thunder can come back stronger and wiser.

So the battle between the leagues two best players Lebron and Kevin Durant has been setled. Lebron has now proven that he is a champion, but Kevin has a long career ahead of him. He is very happy playing with the Thunder and you can expect this clash between superstars for years to come.

‎"It hurts. We are all brothers on this team. It hurts to go out like this. We made it to the Finals, which is cool for us, but it's tough. That's the only way I can explain it. I am proud of the guys and how we fought hard all season. i wouldn't want to play with anybody else or for any other city. I am blessed to be a part of this organization. We hold our heads high." - Kevin Durant
