    That was an amazing game by Lebron. Another 30+ point game 7.

    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    Sad to say but true. I give them credit for showing a champ's resolve and hanging in there this game, when a weaker-minded team might've been blown out from the start after choking that hard in Game 6. But "pissed away" is probably right.

    Ginobili is the goat of the series, Green is the goat of Games 6 and 7 (only plays well at home, rarely drives well/finishes at the rim). Leonard though was very impressive. I thought the Spurs might win tonight just because he was the random role player you need to step up to win a Game 7 and he did that.

    It goes back to what I was saying at the start of the series...you cannot...I repeat cannot rely on role players on the road. Chalmers had a big game 2...and I remember saying the Heat can't rely on him on the road...I said after game 2 that I expected the Spurs role players to play better at home during games 3-6, but not necessarily games 6-7 if it wound up coming back to Miami.

    And Leonard has taken a leap this entire series...he isn't really a role player anymore. I don't know if he is star status yet, but I'm pretty sure the guy averaged a double double while guarding and keeping the best player in the game in check...at least until the 4th quarter of game 6. His leap reminds me some of the way George did in the ECF...his game reminds me a lot of a grittier, doing the dirty work version of Andre Iguadala.

    As much as San Antonio to give that game away, you still have o give Lebron and the Heat some credit...those 7 minutes in the 4th quarter to bring Miami back from 10 down and the entire game 7, he imposed his will on these last 2 games.

    He was incredible and while I still hate the MJ comparisons, people who talk trash about him being clutch and his heart need to have a big, tall glass of STFU juice.

    No Heat fan but props were they are deserved.
    Won the last two with their backs against the wall vrs a very good team capable of beating them.
    Lebron love him or hate him put on an impressive performance over the final two games. He is deserving of the accolades the performance will garner him IMO. Champions put up when it matters That was the knock before on him, now he has that fixed he deserves credit for it.
    All that said Lebron is at best worthy of being on the same court as Jordan. Jordan is and always will be in my lifetime King of the court.

    I give the Heat credit. They're a flawed team that got everyone's best shot, but they still won two elimination games. They also probably know that millions of viewers (perhaps the majority) root against them and love it when they fail. They weather a lot on a constant basis, which does take mental fortitude.

    But I still think when a four-time champion is up by six points with 20 seconds to go and misses free throws and doesn't grab rebounds (because the coach a la Frank Vogel took out the big man who had been dominating), that is a choke job.

    The end of regulation for Game 6 was more the choke, IMO, than Game 7. Game 7, no Spurs player was ever playing that well except Leonard (who probably single-handedly kept the game in reach in the third). You could argue how Duncan missed two point-blank shots at the end (semi-chokey) but I don't really think it mattered by then.

    The thing I took away the most from this, having already felt Lebron has justified himself, was that it was Kawhis arrival. It can not be understated how well he played lebron for at the very least 5.5 games. He was phenomenal and is only going to get better. I thought he really upped his aggressiveness offensively and showed he has a very bright future.

    I love d wades comments after the game. something along the lines of "we have a lot of respect for them, they just go out and beat you. we barely heard anything from them. I have no idea what Kawhis voice sounds like. He just goes out and beasts. the silent assassin."

    Re: NBA playoffs

    in a 7 game series theres going to be plays that could have been the difference throughout just about every game. I dont consider that "choking" as much as it was just the difference in champions or not. The winning team had to overcome those mistakes to make them look like "choking" because if they dont capitalize, then the other team never "choked" to begin with. tough to say 1 games last 5 minutes is worth more than the other 6 when determining the outcome of a series. They couldve played better, and they couldve won, but that could be said for games 2, 4, and 7 also. shoulda woulda coulda.

    Most Spurs fans I know won't give the Heat any credit, it's all about what the Spurs didn't do.

    Totally agree...Leonard made himself a ton of fans and a ton of money and most importantly, a ton of respect.

    Hell of a player who really seemed to get better as e series went along.

    Re: NBA playoffs

    Kawhi Leonard was really good at San Diego State but the NBA thought he would have trouble transitioning to the 3 after playing the 4 in college.

    He went to the perfect team and you see the results.

    Duncan has already said he is coming. Him along with Leonard and Parker and the Spurs will contend next year. I would love to see a guy like Alex Len to go to them because Duncan's example would push him to become really good and succeed him.

    It's not happening but the Spurs have to find a 4-5 man to compliment Duncan and they may win it all next year.
