CONGRATS TO THE MIAMI HEAT! 2012 NBA CHAMPIONS!
And finally--LeBron James nabbed a ring! Tonight, the Miami Heat came out the gate swinging for Game 5. And played an amazing game against OKC. The Heat are the 2012 champs!
Final score: 121-106
Congrats are in order for the Miami Heat! LeBron earned his first ring, Dwyane Wade earned his second, and Chris Bosh, Mario Chalmers, Mike Miller and Shane Battier all copped their first ring as well.
While many were pulling for the youngins who some would call the underdogs OKC (including myself), it was the Miami Heat who came through winning Games 2-5 after OKC debuted in the Finals series winning Game 1.
After the win tonight, LeBron told media that he learned how to humble himself this year both on and off the court saying:
"It means everything. I made a difficult decision to leave Cleveland. But understood what my future was about. And understood that coming to Miami and we had a bright future. This is a dream come true for me. I've been through a lot in the past 2 years."
This is the Heat's second NBA Championship Title in franchise history.
P.S. Anybody else develop a a soft spot for Kevin Durant and the talented OKC during the playoffs? I did.
P.S.S. This is veteran Juwan Howard's first ring (the only member of the Fab 5 to win a ring) after playing in the league for 18 seasons. The 39-year-old played the last couple minutes of the game.
