The Miami Heat did it again! In a tense game between the San Antonio Spurs, the Heat won in the 4th quarter with 95 points to their 88. The team takes home their second consecutive NBA title, and of course LeBron James received the MVP trophy. James congratulated the Spurs, but also recognized his own accomplishments, “I’m Lebron James from Akron, Ohio. I’m not even supposed to be here.” He finished with, “I ain’t got no worries.” Indeed you don’t, Bron Bron.
I’m sure everyone in Miami will be donning headbands in celebration! I also look forward to more crazy locker room gifs of Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade and crew. I mean, how can you not like these guys?!
Well LeBron James did it. The Miami Heat beat the Seattle Sonics Oaklahoma City Thunder in game 5 of the 2012 NBA Finals with a score of 121-106. I have to say the Thunder played their hearts out but it was the Heat’s year. I don’t think Bron Bron has silenced his critics just yet. In fact people might be even more butthurt, especially if you live in the great state of Ohio. (Just as the Seattle folks are butthurt that the Oaklahoma City Thunder are actually the Seattle Sonics.
Legend Bill Russell presented the MVP trophy to James, who earned 28 points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds during the game. He said that it was the happiest day of his life and wouldn’t want to spend it with anyone other than his teammates and fans. I expect there will be massive parties in Miami last night and probably all through the weekend!
And didn’t you love the the crowd singing Kanye West‘s “Power” during the final minutes of the game?
It was East meets West at the 2011 All Star Game. The Western Conference won in a tight game, 148-143. With 37 points and 13 rebounds, Kobe Bryant won a fourth MVP award. With the game in Los Angeles this year, the crowd was full of celebrities including Jay-Z and Beyonce and hardcore Lakers fan Jack Nicholson. Seriously, what would a basketball game be without Jack screaming from the sidelines?
The stars of the Miami Heat showed up looking dapper. Chris, LeBron and Dwyane are some of the best dressed men in the NBA.
Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen represented The Boston Celtics. Looking good fellas!
Steven Tyler, always a hot mess. I love him.
Dustin Hoffman showed up with his lookalike son Jake.
Things kicked off with a performance from Bruno Mars. Josh Groban didn’t mess up the lyrics to the National Anthem while Melanie Fiona sang the Canadian National anthem.
Lenny Kravitz played while the players were being introduced. I don’t know why he’s been everywhere lately, but I don’t hate it.
Beyonce showed off her glittery Louboutins with husband Jay-Z.
Just Bieber was there. Because he’s everywhere.
Nick Cannon and Diddy were really into the game. Or both thinking about how much money they have.
The Joker and his son Raymond.
During Half-time Rihanna performed a medley of her hits including “Umbrella” and “Rude Boy.” She also brought out Drake and Kanye. Can we talk about Kanye’s pants for a minute?
It was a long, LONG, game but I have to say all of Charles Barkley’s commentary was worth it. He even got Stevie Wonder to sing Happy Birthday to him!
