High Degree of Difficulty

The Miami Heat won the 2012 NBA title last night with a 121-106 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder. LeBron James posted a triple double (26 points, 13 assists, 11 rebounds) to put a fitting end to his playoff run of outstanding individual play. King James brought home the Finals MVP and finally silenced his doubters (at least for the time being).

My favorite play of Game 5, though, was Dwyane Wade’s absurd one-handed catch and finish of an alley-oop from Mario Chalmers. Click here to watch the play (which NBA.com won’t allow me to embed).

Thanks a lot, David Stern.
