Although i am for the Oklahoma City Thunder in the NBA Finals but i already expect the Miami Heat to finish the series. But i was not expecting a blowout game, i really wanted to see a close game watching Lebron James delivering on crunch time and winning the championship. But Miami was just superb in Game 5 showing what teamwork is all about in winning a championship.
Yes, it was again an excellent performance for the MVP Lebron James posting a triple double with 26 points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds plus the supporting cast from Miami’s bench. Lebron proves himself that he can win championship, and he fulfills his promise to Miami.
Now that the season is over, what lies ahead for this two team?
For the Oklahoma City Thunder, there is nothing to lose. They are a powerful team powered by young players. They deserve to be in the finals seat beating all the NBA Champions in the Playoffs, the defending champion Dallas Mavericks in the first round, the Los Angeles Lakers in the conference semifinals and the San Antonio Spurs in the conference finals. But they have to learn from these experiences, just like the Miami Heat learning from their defeat in the Dallas series during the 2011 NBA Finals. Kevin Durant must feel what Lebron felt in the 2011 Finals that winning championship is not about individual talent, even Michael Jordan needs his teammate to build his legacy, and this is what Oklahoma has to reflect in this post season. I believe that this team will be more mature next season, dominant, and expect this team to be in the Finals again.
For the Miami Heat, is this the time for Legacy? How many Championship Rings will Lebron has in his career? Will they be the same Miami Team in the next season?
The performance of Lebron James this season and going into the finals showed his maturity. He deserves to be the MVP, he deserves his decision to leave Cleveland, and now this is his time. I will not wonder anymore seeing this team winning another championship next year and the next few years building a legacy.
For the two teams, they are deserving. We will see what lies ahead for Miami and OKC next season. Congrats! to Miami Heat. For OKC, this is not yet our time.
