LeBron James dominated game seven of the NBA finals to look the part of super-duper-star helping to cement his legacy as an all-time great rather than a guy who chokes in the clutch, and it's amazing just how tenuous that moment was...
Fewer turnovers, more offensive rebounds, more assists, and despite Danny Green's magic, the Heat even hit more threes at a higher percentage. The Spurs aren't supposed to overcome a game where Miami gets 16 extra shots up and shoots 47.8% from the three point line, but they did by simply being unstoppable on offense...
It took four games, but we finally saw Miami play like.... Miami. LeBron, Wade, and Bosh all connected for big nights. There was no more talk about facilitating, no more talk about balky knees, and no more excuses. The star players finally realized that they're star players, and played like it. The result?

The Spurs are one of the league's elite teams. They crushed Chicago from the three point line in their last matchup despite playing without Duncan, Ginobili, and Parker. The Bulls will square off against the Spurs on the road while Parker misses the game again...
