The Heat jumped out to the early lead last night in Game 1 of the 2012 NBA Finals, but the Thunder had the last laugh, outscoring the Heat by 18 in the second half to surge to a 105-94 Game 1 victory.
I could spend a thousand words telling you about the game, or I could just present the picture below, of Heat legend Alonzo Mourning and team president Pat Riley, which says a thousand words all on its own.

Opposing team executives being caught on camera with despondent expressions in the middle of a sea of blue during losses is nothing new of course.
It happened to the Lakers’ Mitch Kupchack earlier in these playoffs:

Generally speaking, it’s tough for athletes, especially ones of Dwyane Wade’s caliber to come to terms with the fact that they have lost a step. But in his case, it seems as if Wade, not only knows that he’s lost a little something, but he’s accepted it and understands that he can still be a great player.
“I was 24 — totally different,” said Wade, 30. “I’m not...
Miami came ready to play Tuesday night in Game One of the NBA Finals. The Heat jumped out to a 13-point lead and had everything going. They were forcing turnovers, they were getting out on the break and they were moving the ball.
Mario Chalmers and Shane Battier were getting open shots and taking advantage of an Oklahoma City defense still getting its bearings. LeBron James...

If I told you only two states (according to a totally scientific ESPN.com poll) wanted the Miami Heat to win the NBA Finals, do you think you could guess them correctly? Obviously, Florida would be one of your answers. But what about the other?
Oh right, it would be Washington. You know, the state the Thunder used to play in as the Seattle Sonics before they were mercilessly ripped...
Kevin Durant and LeBron James have reached another level in the postseason, but the 2012 NBA Finals will more likely be turned by one of their teammates.
Touching, poignant, and haunting. And that’s just the afro wig and basketball outfit Iron Mike is sporting.
Mike Tyson continues to reinvent himself as a master of comedy, and this latest appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live only adds to his repertoire of hilarity. Tyson sings the melodic “Lebron James” as only he can. The only thing funnier than Tyson’s so-called singing...
LeBron James has been criticized his whole career for not stepping up when it really matters. That’s the price you pay when some call you the best in the world. His constant disappearing acts down the stretches of big games have now become part of his calling card.
Last year’s NBA Finals was no exception. James didn’t play to the level he’s capable of and the Heat lost to...
Every morning, we'll give you five things from the night before in the NBA to start your day.
1: OKC's big comeback
You wouldn't see a re-incarnted Sun Tzu penning basketball strategies that include being down 13 at any point in an NBA Finals game, but the Thunder never quite seemed uncomfortable with their deficits in Game 1. Like a battering ram taking a few...
It’s the finals every body wanted.
LeBron James versus anti-LeBron James, aka Kevin Durant. The makeup of both the Oklahoma City Thunder and Miami Heat could not be any more different.
Miami built their big-3 through free agency in the summer of 2010. James and Chris Bosh upped with Dwyane Wade, which of course prompted this. Meanwhile, just days after...
Why aren’t you rooting for LeBron James? Unless you’re an Oklahoma City Thunder, Boston Celtic (Classy) or Indiana Pacer fan, it has no intellect at all. Aren’t you tired of giving all your effort to hating LeBron? Or have you not reached your peak and plan on taking your disgust Facebook statuses to the next level?
We get it, LeBron left you clinching your...
Like many Americans of prudent judgment and sound mind, I will be rooting passionately against the Heat during this year’s NBA Finals, and thus for the Oklahoma City Thunder. Why, you ask? Because I have a memory longer than the 24-hour news cycle, that’s why.
We live in a contrarian society, one that argues, overanalyzes and debates ad nauseam. So as soon as it became too popular...
All you have to do is take one look at the picture above to understand what this is going to be. So we won’t waste your time trying to convince you that this song in honor of LeBron James sung by Mike Tyson on Jimmy Kimmel Live is probably the craziest thing you’ll see today.
But what else can you expect when Mike Tyson is involved.
Game 1 off the NBA finals went to the Thunder. But what about the OTHER battle, the fashion one? Russell Westbrook wore a shirt from the 2012 Prada spring collection and of course, personality frames. KD opted for a slim cut suit in black. King James opted for a color mash featuring a berry shirt, [...]
