    He definitely deserves it! LJ might sound haughty at times but he got lots of talents to prove his point.

    Go Miami Heat for a 3 in-a-row next season!

    Being a Miami-Ft. Lauderdale resident, I congratulate our team, the Heat for retaining the NBA title. With a Fil-Am coach handling the team, I can foresee a three-peat title next year with just a minor changes in the lineup. Juwan Howard will retire, Mike Miller will be amnestied and Joel Anthony will be traded. We expect Greg Oden to be the starting center for Miami once he is clear to play after so many surgeries.

    Let’s Go Heat!

    Maybe one more ring and we can compare Lebron to Kobe Bryant.

      Sorry to rain on your parade but his level now is comparable with MJ. Unlike KoME Bryant who thinks an all star game is like a championship series.

    Ang sakit ng pagkatalo ng Spurs “Ginto na, naging Bato pa” hindi pa kaya mare-retire si coach Gregg Popovich nyan! Lamang ng 5 pts. with 28.6 secs. left in Game 6 natalo pa! Common sense lang sana ginamit avoid 3 points attempt better to give foul for Miami. Di ba!

    Heir apparent to Jordan’s throne. All Hail the King!

      Heir Apparent? You gotta be kidding me! If it wasn’t for Allen’s clutch baskets, he would have been crying by now. =P

        If it was’t for Lebron’s 16 pts in the 4th quarter, there wouldn’t have been Ray Allen’s game-tying 3. It’s called a team game for a reason. People like you think like Ko-me: Me. Me. Me.

      thanks to ray allen ;)

    Wow. Congrats to Miami – deserving champs!
