Game 7 of the 2013 NBA Finals between the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat was one for the ages and it drew in the TV audience.
The game drew in the second-most viewers for the Finals on ABC since the network took over the series in 2003. The season finale game drew in an average of 26.3 million people.

The Heat walked away with the NBA crown, defending their title and beating the Spurs 95-88.

This is by far the best Vine video of all time. Watching Chris Bosh trying to get confetti off his face without using his hands is absolutely hysterical. The poor guy just cannot catch a break when it comes to this stuff. [@netw3rk]
Gregg Popovich was reflective, loquacious, funny and even answered questions from the media without prompting.
It's easy to say it was all a bit out of character for Popovich, but the circumstances were new to the San Antonio Spurs coach and all those who have followed them.
San Antonio was 28 seconds away from going a perfect 5 for 5 in the NBA Finals under Popovich when everything...
LeBron James and the Miami Heat have won back-to-back championships and after the game LeBron James said, he was just a guy from the inner city of Akron, Ohio. He went on to say he wasn’t even suppose to be there. Well he is there. He is putting on his second consecutive championship ring and he may not be finished yet. The way LeBron plays basketball, it looks like it is his destiny...
The good life: not even noticing when an attractive waitress pours you champagne. LeBron James and several members of the Miami Heat team partied at Story Nightclub, where they probably had the time of their lives drinking Dom Perignon and eating pizza. Also, hey there Damon Jones.

Before I begin, I must say one thing; I refuse to apologize for my prediction. Whether you chose to call me a hater, or simply a sour grape eater, Miami didn’t beat San Antonio. Despite, LeBron’s, Wade’s, and Ray Allen’s performances, Miami was on the verge of the fence. Tony Parker proved to be a handful form game one. Likewise, Chris Bosh was routinely outplayed by Tim...
This is just so, so, so Chris Bosh. The only way it could be MORE Chris Bosh is if it wasn’t confetti in his mouth, but another dude’s toes.

It took about 15 hours, but Drake finally addressed the story that went viral of him being denied access to the Miami Heat locker room after the team won the NBA championship on Thursday night. As we shared with you early Friday morning, Drake and some members of his entourage tried to get into the [...]
I know that they make a commercial for each team to sell their championship apparel to their fans, but running both of them? Everyone knows that the gear of the losing team gets sent off to a third world country, but apparently NBA TV didn’t pay closely attention enough to which ad they were supposed to be running. I’m sure San Antonio Spurs fans would love towels and t-shirts...
If the Spurs turn around and won Game 7 of the NBA Finals there would be a lot of people in some third world country rocking out to this collection. Luckily for Nike and the Miami Heat that the Spurs didn’t.

“For me, I can’t worry about what everybody says about me. I’m LeBron James, from Akron, Ohio. From the inner city. I’m not even supposed to be here. That’s enough. Every night I walk into the locker room, I see a #6 with James on the back, I’m blessed.

Grand Slam brotha, Grand Slam!
It was painful to watch as the San Antonio Spurs walked off the Heat home court in a Game 7 loss in the NBA Finals. It was the first time in the Spurs' history they lost in an NBA Finals.
The Spurs spoke about the loss and needless to say, the pain of losing in basketball's grandest stage was evident on their faces.
This guy is the vanilla wafer I hope I never become when I’m 50. Oh wait, he’s 37? Oh. Oh well then.
