LeBron calls Game 6 “best game I’ve ever been a part of”

Jun 19, 2013, 10:31 AM EDT

That was an epic Game 6.

There was great play from both sides, huge shots by Ray Allen and Tony Parker and LeBron James and Kawhi Leonard and… I could go on and on.

The players knew it was a great game, too. These are some highlights from the postgame press conferences where they talk about that and what’s ahead in Game 7 (Erik Spoelstra said they are happy to have it).

    It may have been the greatest game he has ever been a part of, but it wasn’t his best game ever. If Ray Allen hadn’t saved them, we’d be talking about him being the goat instead of the GOAT.

      Only anti-Lebron James clowns would blame the loss on him. The rest of of us would applaud him for having one of the best NBA Finals games ever.

      • logisticalvoices - Jun 19, 2013 at 11:00 AM

        I fully appreciate how amazing he was for about 10 minutes in the 4th quarter and how un-clutch he looked for the final two minutes. It’s that lack of consistency that still is a question mark in his career. You don’t have to be an “anti-Lebron James clown” to see that.

      • blueintown - Jun 19, 2013 at 11:40 AM

        Consistency is not measured in two minute stretches.

      • logisticalvoices - Jun 19, 2013 at 1:13 PM

        @blue: You’re absolutely right. It’s not measured in two minutes. It’s been measured over 10 seasons. And the questions still remain in the clutch. You’ve got to take off the LeBron love-goggles to at least acknowledge that.

      • blueintown - Jun 19, 2013 at 10:53 PM

        Logistical, since coming into the league ten seasons ago, no player has more game-winning/tying shots in the last minute of the fourth quarter or overtime than LeBron James. Additionally, no active player has made a higher percentage of those shots than LeBron James. If being the most consistently successful clutch player in the league the last ten years isn’t evidence enough that he is clutch, I don’t know what will be.

      you sound like a Spurs fan, too bad, you had the chip but could not close
      out the last .28 seconds, you will regret that.
      Manu sounds defeated, he checked out!

      • logisticalvoices - Jun 19, 2013 at 11:08 AM

        @fan: Definitely not a Spurs fan. I’ve been commenting here for a while and haven’t been accused of that before. I am just looking forward to watching a great game 7 and hope it goes down to the wire like last night.

    • mckaymatt - Jun 19, 2013 at 11:49 AM

      Yeah I think that is what he said pretty much…don’t remember him saying in the video that it was the best game he has ever played…thanks for breaking it down.

      • fanofevilempire - Jun 19, 2013 at 1:21 PM

        logisticalvoices, I stand corrected, nothing wrong with being a Spur fan by the way.

    • hehateme2 - Jun 19, 2013 at 1:41 PM

      Shut up already. #redtailsalwayslosethebigone

    • cwilson6843 - Jun 19, 2013 at 4:18 PM

      Well for starts he had a triple double. Secondly Ray Allen hit the shot so your comment lacks any kind of meaning. And your username is logisticalvoices but yet you speak no logic, only the “what if” story. Give me a break you’re dumb

  2. fanofevilempire - Jun 19, 2013 at 10:52 AM

    I don’t know about being one of the best ever Finals game over all, I disagree on that but I think
    it could be a BIG game in LeBrons career and yes it was good thing they win, who cares how as
    long as you get 16 wins it doesn’t matter.
    Get your popcorn ready, winner take all……………….

  3. 1heatedtoombrayduh - Jun 19, 2013 at 10:56 AM

    Theyre not saying it was the best game ever ppl; theyre saying ONE of, and if you like drama..back and forth scores or last second heorics, this is ONE for the ages…maybe not THEE one for the ages, but definitely one…IMO

  4. dvnelson72 - Jun 19, 2013 at 11:18 AM

    I’m a heat fan.

    Lebron and Wade have missed a LOT of layups in the past 2 games. If Lebron and Wade finish those shots game 5 would have been much closer.

    Wade is missing the acrobatic, unbalanced 3-5 ft shots that he used to make. I know he’s hurt, but if he can’t make those shots, he is useless.

    To me game 7 comes down to 2 things. First, does Lebron finish his up close shots? Second, do the heat make the outside shots that they need to against that packed in soft defense?

    Finally, if I’m the Heat, I play a little thug ball on Parker. Make him pay for every shot. It’s old school Detroit Pistons strategy, but this game was uncharacteristic. They need to do something to keep him off his game.

    • savvybynature - Jun 19, 2013 at 11:46 PM

      So your keys to the game are: Heat should make all their shots, the ones that are close and the ones that are far away; and the Heat should cheap shot Parker until he is too hurt to be effective.
      Wow. You are brilliant. Heat should definitely hire you as a consultant.

  5. 1972wasalongtimeago - Jun 19, 2013 at 11:19 AM

    Hey LeBron, go score better than Michael Jordan. Hey LeBron, go pass better than Magic Johnson. Hey LeBron, go have a higher basketball IQ than Larry Bird. Hey LeBron, go guard Tony Parker and Tim Duncan. Hey LeBron, go undefeated. Hey LeBron, go take an absolute physical pounding every time you have the ball and since the refs can’t call a fould every time you’re just going to have to deal. And hey LeBron, anything less that this will be considered a complete failure for which you will be publicly ridiculed.

    And anyone who thinks that the refs helped Miami win this game is completely out of their mind. Tell me exactly what the Spurs have to do to get a foul called on them? The Manu play at the end? The guy took 4 steps before he got touched. The Bosh block? Please. No ref is ever going to bail out a falling out of bounds prayer when the defender gets all ball. Any problem with Gimobili throwing an elbow into LeBron’s chin and not getting a flagrant called? No? Didn’t think so.

    The idiocy from many of the commenters on this website is getting to me.

    “Alonzo Mourning? Tim Hardaway? Who are they?”

    – Heat fans

    • 1heatedtoombrayduh - Jun 19, 2013 at 11:43 AM

      not all heat fans became fans in 2010 lol

    You can tell Lebron feels blessed and lucky to be around hard working champions like Ray Allen and even Chris Bosh who helped bail the team out after all of those turnovers. I’m sure if he gets ring #2 tomorrow Lebron will thank his lucky stars he teamed up with such formidable players. To be able to share the court with legends has got to feel pretty good for him.

    • mckaymatt - Jun 19, 2013 at 11:48 AM

      I would counter but I think you’re trolling.

      • hehateme2 - Jun 19, 2013 at 1:43 PM

        Speaking of trolls…. is it time to worry about cantonclowns wellbeing? He would have blown up this thread if things turned out differently.
        Like to dish it out but can’t take it clearly.

    • 2late2matter - Jun 19, 2013 at 11:59 AM

      More likely LeChoke will (again) play a post-win, sub par game where Coach Popovich smothers he and D-Whine with fresh players from his bench. Look at how many minutes LeChoke plays per game! That is amazing to me but answers why he appears sluggish and lazy at times.

      Sorry, but for every shot he hit in Game 6, I saw two misses. Yet….when a 250-lb athlete comes straight at you – few (smart) players will elect to draw a charging foul on him.

      • blueintown - Jun 19, 2013 at 12:04 PM

        Then what would a “smart” player do?

      • 2late2matter - Jul 12, 2013 at 7:47 PM

        A smart player would rise to his level of talent and influence on teammates to do his best to win Gm 7. And that is just what LeBron managed to do. It was a good game and close – just like the significant others.

    • cwilson6843 - Jun 19, 2013 at 4:28 PM

      Hey Caesar’s ghost how many hall of famers did MJ play with? Yea exactly. LeBron left Cleveland because he didn’t have anyone there to make that shot like Ray Allen did. And if I’m not mistaken, I recall Scottie pippen bailing MJ out a couple time. Yall are so biased its ridiculous

      • azarkhan - Jun 19, 2013 at 5:16 PM

        MJ also had Dennis Rodman who is in the HOF.

  8. loungefly74 - Jun 19, 2013 at 11:36 AM

    Triple Double for James? Hell ya that was a great game for him…oh, and they won.

  9. klownboy - Jun 19, 2013 at 12:31 PM

    James played a heck of a game – in the 4th quarter. He almost single-handedly screwed up my Finals pick.

  10. heavychevy15 - Jun 19, 2013 at 12:49 PM

    Look at the number of minutes played from both teams. With the exception of James POP played most of his guys more than the Heat played theirs. SportsCenter showed the stat after the game last night. Everyone is gonna be tired tomorrow. Don’t expect fresh legs.

  11. heavychevy15 - Jun 19, 2013 at 12:52 PM

    Leanord 46
    Duncan 44
    Parker 43
    Green 41
    Ginobli 35

    Lebron 50
    Charmers 43
    Bosh 39
    Wade 37
    Miller 30
