The Miami Heat fans are what you call bandwagon fans. Based on what I've read and seen on Instagram, some fans left as early as halftime. And most fans vacated the arena with 4-5 minutes left when th

So he's not Jordan......who cares? No one is. Magic lost 4 times in the Finals. Bird lost twice. Kobe lost twice. Dr. J lost 3 times. This narrative is boring. He's not going to have the legacy

enough with the ******** legacies already, it's becoming something you can't even talk about seriously because it just makes you look like Skip Bayless

Not mentioning anyone in this thread, but usually when I hear people on tv or my friends say the word legacy in reference to a current situation, it's because they have nothing actually educated to say about the matter with any balanced perspective. Just about every great who has ever played any sport has had low moments in their career... sometimes in the beginning, sometimes in the middle, sometimes in the end.

I kid you not, the "legacy" of Jordan before he won his first ship was that he was an amazing athlete but shot the ball too much to be a champion like Bird/Magic. People pretend like this didn't happen, but it did.

I don't know what the legacy of Lebron, the Spurs, or Peyton Manning will be 20 years down the line, but I can guarantee it won't be the product of the outcome of one game, series, or even year. It's a whole career.

Bosh guarantees a game 5 win for the Heat......

“We’re not going down, we’re going to win this game tonight,” Bosh said. “We’re going to come, prepare like we need to do. Plain and simple, we’re going to win this game.”

lbj saying they will make history.

and on a side note or a non related finals news, pops will return next year.

Come on now. Duncan's legacy would certainly not be demolished if they were to lose the series.

completely agree, he would add to his legacy, but his legacy is already cemented regardless of the outcome

Wade at this point just looks lost on offense, and is a borderline liability. He can't stretch the floor with shooting, and his legs just look shot at this point in the season. Any "iso" type play he tries just isn't working - the difficulty on his shots attempts is just so high - and they're not falling. He's not really moving without the ball - and he needs to since he can't stretch the floor, he needs to be cutting around the hoop, but he just always looks so tired too me, I don't know - and this doesn't even touch on him at the other end of the court (he's been better this game so far though).

If I'm the Heat, I'm starting to make anyone not named Parker or Ginobili finish at the rim without so much help - there was an instance earlier where Bonner pumped faked, drove to the hoop and like 4 Heat players crashed on him like he was LeBron leading to a wide open three, like really? Diaw clearly wants to pass when he drives - I'd start making him try to be a scorer versus a facilitator. Spurs have pretty much taken the Heat's (LeBron) best shot earlier on, and now are starting to get rolling....

As much as I love Duncan to get the MVP if they win..Leonard is making a case for it..

IMO Leonard is the no brainer MVP. He's actually mirrored Lebron stat wise and has been clutch repeatedly.

Honorable mention to the Dallas Mavericks. Looks like the only team good enough to take the Spurs to 7.

These playoffs simply confirmed that Pop and Carlisle are among the best coaches in the league.

Exactly what I was going to say. This puts into perspective how tough the Mavs fought. I still can't believe what I'm seeing. Spurs winning the series isn't a surprise, but they've been so dominant.
