Video: NBA micro-movie Game 5 — Thunder vs. Heat

Jun 22, 2012, 4:04 PM EDT

Thunder fans, you may want to avert your eyes. This wasn’t a pretty ending to your season.

But it was a real coronation of the Miami Heat as champions that turned into a rout and a 12-minute fourth quarter party leading up to the win. Miami could do no wrong — LeBron James recorded a triple double but when he kicked the ball out the injured Mike Miller was knocked down threes like he was a decade younger. Miami turned up their defensive pressure, turned that into transition opportunities and there was nothing the Thunder could do.

For Heat fans, it was a thing of beauty. For the Thunder, it’s fuel for next year.

    Hey Dan, You’ve already had two lottery picks. How many more lottery picks will you need to replace Lebron?

    Move on? That’s enough? Where were you guys the last two years while Lebron was demonized? 2 years!!! Now, after a few hours it’s too much? How does it fill. #Hippocrates

    And if you keep watching until the end of the credits there’s a little teaser of bozosforall taking his Epic Fail Prediction that the West will dominate the East just like the man he is.

    For those who are impatient, here’s the link:

    Dear Thunder,

    Thank you for looking stupid in your 5-game obliteration, and ultimately, bringing me my first NBA-related joy since 2007.

    Smooches,

    Seattle (a.k.a. “The West Coast Miami Fan Club”)
