  1. OKC lost the championship, but the Thunders are still an excellent team ! MIA won, but are being perceive as ugly and mean players ! The referees were not fair to OKC either. They let MIA purposely created fouls so they could get more free throws ! What a lousy sportsmanship ! Put the spirit of playing basketball in disgrace ! What a shame !
