CBS Sports Network analyst and former first-round pick Wally Szczerbiak joined CBS Local Sports to give perspective as to what the prospects are going through on the biggest night of their basketball lives.
Like everyone red blooded American, I would have loved to see the Heat lose in the Finals to the Oklahoma City Thunder. With that being said, part of me is happy because this asinine LeBron James narrative can finally be put away.
As much as the Heat have outplayed the Thunder in this series, the margin has been extremely small. A few plays here and there and the Thunder could easily be the team up 3-1. If Oklahoma City can do a few things differently, they can still win this series.
The Miami Heat moved one game closer to it’s second NBA Championship Tuesday night at the AmericanAirlines Arena with a thrilling 104-98 victory in Game 4 of the NBA Finals.
There are real things Knicks fans should worry about. So don’t panic over something that a petulant Jackson said to HBO.
It has been the Heat’s ability to slow down the Thunder offense that has been the difference so far in the series.
The old cliché reads, “Defense wins championships.” But this season, it may very well be the Thunder’s high-octane offense that gets them a title.
The Heat are focused around stars, but right now two of them (Bosh and Wade) for a variety of reasons, aren’t playing like ones. Unless things change, the Thunder will be celebrating a title a lot sooner than people think.
With the NBA Finals set to begin on Tuesday night, here is a closer look at the matchups that will be critical in determining the eventual champion.
LeBron James versus Kevin Durant. It is the story of these NBA finals. One of them will emerge with his first championship and probably the title of best player in the game.
Oklahoma sports fans previously split their loyalties between OU and OSU, but now the state has become united behind OKC, as the Thunder prepare for the Heat in the NBA Finals.
The Miami Heat are in for a rude awakening when the NBA Finals start Tuesday night.
After a labor related splintered season, the NBA Finals is quite the perfect storm. In a battle of epic meteorological proportions, the Thunder takes on the Heat. But more importantly, this is the matchup that seems to be the one most of the basketball universe wants to see.
When James Harden, the 2012 NBA Sixth Man of the Year was drafted by the Oklahoma City Thunder with the third overall pick at the 2009 NBA Draft, he could be considered almost clean shaven in comparison to how he appears now, rocking his celebrated buccaneer beard.
I don’t care how “competitive” you are, how “passionate” you are or “what bad timing” it was. Nice try, but blaming that elbow on “two powerhouses colliding” is a lame excuse.
