The argument about whether LeBron James will ultimately be better than Michael Jordan continues to gain steam. But Dennis Rodman, Jordan’s former teammate with the Bulls, doesn’t want to hear it. To him, it’s an asinine argument.
Tony Parker banked in a 16-footer with 5.2 seconds left for the last of his 21 points and the San Antonio Spurs stunned the Miami Heat 92-88 in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night.
All in all, this should be a very exciting and competitive series. San Antonio will likely have to win two games in Miami to win the series. It’s a tall order, but if any team can win a Game 7 in Miami, it’s a veteran team like the Spurs.

Carmelo Anthony released his final shot of the night then skipped backward, already knowing the outcome. The shot was good. For Anthony and the New York Knicks, the outcome was even better.
No last-second shot. No fourth-quarter rally. No record for LeBron James and the Miami Heat, either.
If Miami breaks the record and records another championship, they should stand tall next to any team that has ever played, no matter the age, wage or wager. Maybe by that time Frazier will see a little more clearly.
