Dwyane Wade… er, Three reflects on another NBA Championship

Jun 21, 2013, 11:53 AM EDT

No wonder Dwyane Wade, er, I mean Three was seeming a little bit giddy in his post-game press conference. He had two banged up knees (which may or may not require surgery) and had been up and down throughout the playoffs. We didn’t know what we were getting out of him but you had to wonder how much he had to give in Game 7.

How about 23 points, 10 rebounds.

After a series where the Heat’s spacing was not good when Wade and LeBron James share the court they found a way to make it work well when they needed it most in Game 7. This was a very hard mountain to climb for Wade and the Heat and he really seemed to savor the moment.

    I cant believe how quiet it is on this site after the Heat won. I dont get people. Why would you want to spend $100 million in Cleveland…….I think it could only get worse for those people because if I was Dwight Howards people I would be telling him to go talk to Pat Riley………..He is exactly what the Heat need. Switch Bosh for Howard…….

      We need to keep the lane open, not clog it. Bosh is more important than everyone realizes

        That is true but you guys are just so small. You need somebody to grab a rebound and play some pose D, then its 10 straight.

      Why switch anything? 3 trips in a row to the NBA finals and 2 Championships in a row. I think the Heat are fine the way they are. If it’s not broke, dont fix it.

        I think they need upgrades. Teams like Pacers, Bulls, Thunder, Lakers (well, not sure bout tjlhis one) will get better, no doubt. It will be harder and harder for Heat with every year.

    The Heat deserved to win last night and there is no doubt that James is the best player in the NBA at the moment. The problem is that if his support players play like they did in game 7 for most of next year and there are no Heat injuries the NBA can mail in the results for next year right now. We saw what he did to Parker and I remember what he did several years ago against Mr. Rose in the play-offs. Very very good tall beats very very good small 8 times out of 10.

    You kinda get the feeling this Lebron guy has figured it out, eh? His game is so… broad… that I suspect he’ll find ways to stay dominant even as he declines physically. And even THAT won’t be for a while, barring injury. The dude is a force of nature, and I’m glad to see his style of play win a couple rings. Probably the nosy unselfish superstar/MVP ever, other than the point guards like Magic and Kidd.

    His 3-point shooting should only improve, and he’ll always be a bull in the paint. Look out world- Lebron has arrived!

    To quote the Red Hot Chili Peppers classic “Magic Johnson”, the following quote (written for the 89 Lakers) applies today:

    Back to Back is a Bad Ass Fact. A Record that Remains, INTACT!
