Hope I'm wrong, but I don't see Lebron being denied the title tonight.

I have an twitter stalker who tried to rip on me for watching the USMNT play instead of watching the entirety of Game 6. He called me un-American for watching soccer over basketball. Yes, watching the UNITED STATES Men's NATIONAL Team is apparently un-American. I will just leave him alone.
I was out of line.
When you're holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
Spurs had their chance and blew it. I hope I eat crow tomorrow, but I feel like Miami will blow them out tonight.
Me too- I don't think you can let a game get away like that and then expect to beat the defending champ, with the best player in bball, on their home floor, two days later.
Don't see any way that the Spurs win this game.
What if they score more points?
I think it'd be tough for Miami to over come that. On the other side of the coin, look for San Antonio to have trouble winning if Miami ends up scoring more.
Do I come off as arrogant? Shame on me, I was hoping it would be more obvious.
Top notch exchange right there... Well played sirs, well played...
I'm rooting for the Spurs tonight, but I don't see Miami losing this one.
It's true... We really are a bunch of nuts!
Spurs had their chance and blew it. No team is going to climb out of the emotional hole of being up by 5 with :20 seconds to play and squandering your championship

I always thought Bosh looked sort of like a preying mantis with the long neck.
Why does it look like Bosh has a black gaping hole in his mouth? lol
Well here is my prediction. If LeBron loses his headband again, its over. Spurs are toast.
If I were LeBron, I would do away with the headband forever. His headband is akin to Bruce Banner's breathing exercises to keep the Hulk at bay.
I really hope that I am wrong by picking the Heat to win tonight's game. Especially because I live in the heart of the banwagon town that is Miami.
I think the Spurs' best chance to win was on Tuesday, and unfortunately they couldn't close it out.
In an unexpected turn of events, the NBA decides to extend the series to a best of 9.
Heat, lets go LeBron for title #2. That would put him 1 ahead of Jordan at the same age.
The Spurs will win game 7, but the series will be extended to 9 games.
Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.
LeBron. And the haters level of butt hurt will exceed critical mass when they're forced to accept his addition to NBA's Mount Rushmore.
Of course I'd argue he's already there but apparently championships are the metric by which individuals are measured in a team sport. Regardless, King James gets his second title tonight.
Agreed. The Spurs let their chance go Tuesday night and now I don't perceive anyway they get that momentum back. They are a good team but this game seven situation may be their demise.

Saw the downvote hater here. Had this great thought the other night...
Stern says Miami.
"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.
I'd like to see Tim Duncan win one more before retiring, but Ginobli's bald spot keeps getting in the way. Does that guy ever make a gap pass?
I'll give you that one, but you have to admit, there was some luck involved with that one. He threw away more passes in the 3rd and 4th quarter than I can count.
The good news is that Stern burned Spurs Hater Supremo Joey Crawford on Game 6, so he's not coming back tonight.
The bad news is, pretty much everything else. Bottom line is that not only do the Spurs have to overcome a lot of history saying that road teams never win a Game 7 (hasn't happened in the NBA finals since '78 or in the World Series since '79), but they have to do it having choked away the title once--and the recent track record after Game 6 chokes (most recently seen with the Texas Rangers) is not only a Game 7 loss, but a Game 7 blowout.
I'd love to be wrong, but all the evidence of my life as a sports fan says I won't be.
The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.
I have never rooted so hard against a team than I do the Heat these days. That Spurs choke was pretty heartbreaking and I don't even like the Spurs. Pop is a great coach but made some questionable calls down the stretch, especially taking Duncan out twice at the end only to give up offensive rebounds and a 3 on each of those 2 possessions. Spurs still could have won it at the FT line though. Either way, I think the Heat win tonight and I think it will be double digits. Hope I'm wrong though, because it would be sad to see a bunch of whiners like the Heat win another title.
As someone already said, it's been 3 years, get over it. I'm sure the kids that got the $2MM from his choice think you're being a little selfish like an exgirlfriend.
We Cavs fans need to let go of the LeBron thing. I'm not denying that it completely sucked, but the dude took less money to win. If that were Kobe Bryant, we'd all be praising him. Oh, and Heat by 10+. No way the Spurs get over that choke job, especially is LeBron doesn't wear the head band.
"If you root for Michigan, the terrorists win."
I'm not a Cavs fan and I think LeBron is a weak-minded punk who isn't in the same galaxy as a competitor like Kobe Bryant or Michael Jordan. Cavs fans don't need to let go of anything.
you're right about tonight, I think, though. I don't see the Spurs overcoming the end go game 6. LeBron is gonna be hoisting the trophy.
Of course the Heat win. God hates Cleveland.
The postgame show is brought to you by... Christ, I can't find it. The hell with it...
My heart says Spurs, my head says Heat. Game 7 at home will be hard to overcome for my Spurs.
Man, my elbow hurt!
