First and foremost, Jordan and Kobe are still better than LeBron.
Now that that is out of the way, congratulations to LeBron James and the Miami Heat for winning the 2012 NBA Finals in a game five throttling of the Oklahoma City Thunder, 121-106. Love him or hate him, you can't deny that in this, his ninth season, James made a huge statement throughout the playoffs culminating in an NBA championship and a unanimous Finals MVP award.

Ironically enough, it was the "Others" who pitched in to help deliver the King his first title. James still posted a triple-double but Miller, Battier, and even Cole would not be denied. It's great to see LeBron and this team get that once-elusive title and finally silence the doubters--if only for one night.

The game was relatively even although the Heat looked to have the slight edge early on. Then, during the third, the Big Three took the reigns and their supporting cast made it rain. James scored 26, Bosh scored 24, and Wade added 20 points as the Thunder had appeared to have given in by the start of the fourth quarter.
The "Greatest Ever" comparisons are on their way and the haters will continue to downplay the title they said Bron Bron couldn't get. Regardless, congratulations to the Miami Heat (and the Thunder) and in the words of the King, "It's about damn time".
