First, congrats to the Spurs. World class team and organization.

And second, I guarantee Wade will be the only little bitch who takes his option to make his 20+ million therefore fucking the Heat franchise. If the Big 3 are serious about winning more championships they'll take huge pay cuts so Riley can build a good bench. Chalmers, Battier, and probably Allen and Andersen will be gone next year. But again Wade will ruin everything, take his 20 million, ruin the franchise, and still miss 50 games.

Man this just confirms what most already knew.. the heat title last year was a fluke.

Congrats to the Spurs, but I've got to say just about every series since the end of first round has been a huge letdown.

Agreed but even though the last 3 games of the Finals were blowouts, watching the Spurs offense was quite entertaining.

Who is the MVP Ginobli or Leonard?

Loenard. Who got it? Awesome series and I actually feel sorry for Lebron. He showed up tonight. Wade was made a punk the whole game, I loved it.

Lebron just left open the door to leaving Miami. This is going to be a fun summer.

WOOOO! Awesome playoffs by the Spurs. This is the best Spurs team ive seen. Pure team basketball. I love it. 5 titles, this team can win it again next year but I do not blame them if Timmy, Ginobili and Pop retire. Fuck yeah! Been too long. Revenge was sweet. As I said last year when there was a few "wagon" heat fans they wouldn't be here this year. Only one true fan is here, yoko. The rest are wagon fucks and if Lebron leaves they will too.

I figured the Spurs would win but shit, not str8 destroy Miami. Good to see Timmy D get another ring.

Lebron off to the next superteam? LOL an MJ he's not.

Congrats to the Spurs, Tim Duncan, and Coach Pop.

Should be an entertaining off season.

Wade is done being an elite or even great player, if there was any doubt left. He gets to miss over 25 games on the regular season to be rested and play great in the playoffs. He can't do that anymore and there isn't any reason to believe that next season, when he is a year older, it would be any different. Wade is a role player, who can occasionally take over a game.

If anything, this is the end of the Big 3 era. Goes to show you that Fundamental Basketball and building a team from a ground up is a lot better than buying championships for long term commitment

No, no it's not. Let's not pretend like the Heat didn't win two years in a row.People said 'Goes to show you that fundamental basketball...' when the Mavs beat the Heat, look how that ended up for the Heat.

Miami won the title last year on pure luck. They better shell out the $ to build another super team around Lebron or he'll bounce soon. The NBA keeps going downhill every year with most the focus on teams buying titles nowadays.

LOL, when the Heat came together, they guaranteed multiple championships!

Lebron: Not 3, Not 4 Not 5, Not 6, Note 7, but multiple championships. The Heat only won 2 out of 5 finals when the Heatles came together. And yes, they won against the Spurs last year because the Spurs were injured and they choked at the end. They played against a Healthy Spurs team with a rising star that is Kawhi Leonard and have a much solid bench compared to Miami's! Also, this finals proved that Spoelstra can't coach or can't build players. He's been on the hot seat before the Big 3 came in and basically saved his job.

@FireEmblem_Man: @Braun_Roid_Rage: Ray Allen practices that shot for hours before every game. Luck is when preparation meets opportunity, and that's what happened. I like what Bill Simmons says about people hating Super Teams, people hate them until there are none.

Is two championships not 'multiple championships? Is two championships not an achievement? Most teams don't have two championships total, let alone back to back. You don't think Superteams will still form? That's just crazy talk players like Melo would kill to get one championship, let alone two.Also, the Heat have only been together for 4 years, not 5. They have been to the finals EVERY YEAR since the big 3 formed.In those 4 years, the Heat have played significantly more wear on their legs than the Spurs, especially LeBron who played in 4 straight finals and the Olympics.

Still amazed Spurs won 4-1. Also glad Tim signed for another year so hopefully Spurs can repeat again for a sixth championship.
