For Miami, LeBron and his team were expected to win and win they did. LeBron and his supporting crew played one of their best games of the entire post-season. Anything less for the Miami Heat though would have been considered failure.
In a hard fought battle between two heavy weights, the Heat were able to take down the "never give up" San Antonio Spurs in a series that featured one of the best games in NBA Final's history. For the Spurs last night's defeat was perhaps more bitter than any other, as their Game 6 heart-breaker was likely front and center on all their minds - though one would never have known it from how they played.
Despite the loss, Coach Popovich was able to share the bright side. "What they accomplished this year is something that nobody expected. .... They showed a lot of mental toughness and a lot of good play to get where they got and I'm really proud of them." When asked what he said to his team after the game, he answered, "I told them I loved them."
MVP James rose to the occasion as Champions do. He lead HIS team to victories in games six and seven and was aptly crowned Finals MVP. For fans of the NBA this heated battle will be missed and although San Antonio fans are experiencing disappointment the Spurs delivered one of the most entertaining and nail biting performances in recent memory. Despite losing Game 6, when it was pretty much in the bag, watching a Game 7 was a treat, for Spurs fans and anyone that loves to watch athletes performing at such an incredibly high level.
Congratulations to the Miami Heat on an outstanding season and another Championship.
