Put up beast numbers, guarded Durant well in the 4th and is as professional as ever at the podium

LeBron had 29 and 14 and is just too much for OKC. They’re too young.  Sheed reference later in that vital regard. I mention a lot of stuff to be looked at later in the series. TSF is ahead of the game. OKC last lead 77-76. Durant 5 fouls…again. Westbrook had just 19. Kevin Durant is doing everything he can and had 25, but LeBron is the Heat Mizer…he’s too much. Wade had 25, 7 and 7. Miami hit free throws again. Westbrook and Durant were 4-6 from the line. So was Kendrick Perkins. Wait. What? 91-85 Miami win. Lead series 2-1.  Read more »

Rodney King is dead and despite the reports, I’m about as comfortable with that as I was with four officers going free for beating him twenty years ago.
