Sorry that was ruined for you. You just went through what most of us on the board already have and I know it's not pleasant.

Been a fun game so far. Heat playing well, Jimmy is having another historic game with 22/6/6/3 on 7/10 shooting in the first half. Lebron at 21/4/3 on 9/11 shooting though. AD has also been good, no one else really stepping up for LA though. Nunn has been pretty big for Miami and Herro/Robinson have both hit some shots.

Nothing could make me happier than that Morris turnover to lose the game.

Great pass by Markieff Morris to end the game. What a pickup by the Lakers.

And how wide open was Green to be THAT short on the game winning shot?

Well, the Lakers are up 87-58 at the end of the 3rd. It was fun while it lasted.

Heat cut it to 21, 90-69. It’s still over, but maybe Miami can make it close

Yep, if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all. That was the best I could come up with. Poor Lakers’ fans with their record tying 17th championship. Must be rough.

I just marvel at Lebron and what he’s done and still doing in year 17 at 35 years old. 30/12/9 and shot 59/42/67 in the Finals. Unreal. Wish he did it with a different team, but he’s a treasure to watch.

He’s got time for a couple more teams.

I saw a Laker fan say that Laker fans have suffered the most, because they are used to winning.
"30 wins would be an extremely disappointing season" yeah, I said it and I mean it.

Some time ago, maybe a year or two, one of The Ringer guys talked about appreciating LeBron and a lot of people laughed at it. But he's right.

LeBron is absolutely amazing. The worst thing that can be said about him is that he's meticulously theatrical with his image, and that really means nothing at all in the large scope of things. I hate the Lakers (fans) but I can't blame any millionaire (billionaire?) athlete who wants to live in LA. I'd probably be in a Malibu beach house myself if I had the chance.
