It is what every sports fan loves. Two teams battle through a series to end up here. One game to decide a championship. It’s why the Super Bowl is consistently the highest rated TV event. Yet, as big as the Super Bowl is, it doesn’t have the build-up that a 7 game series has. As the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs prepare for what should be an epic finale to what has been a compelling series. The only people who are not excited about this game are Spurs’ fans, who thought they had an NBA Title won with a 5 point lead and 20 seconds left in Game 6.
If the Heat win tonight, Ray Allen should be the Finals MVP. LeBron is going to have the most impressive stats, but that pretty much goes without saying. Allen has hit shots when Miami was in the most dire of circumstances. He has turned back the clock, making key steals and drives to the basket as well. And without question, he saved the Heat in Game 6 with a game-tying 3 pointer with 5 seconds left.
This series had the potential to be epic and it has lived up to the bill. There have been surprises like Danny Green shooting 3′s at an all time record rate. There have been overtime thrillers and demolition style blowouts. America has been privileged to watch no less than six future NBA Hall of Famers battle for the NBA Championship, and that’s not even counting Chris Bosh. Tonight it will all come to a dramatic climax. LeBron and his legacy in flux. Dwyane Wade and his knee(s) in limbo. Tim Duncan and his potential triumphant exit. There are all kinds of storylines to follow as the countdown to Game 7 rolls on today. The biggest story though is that there is a Game 7. Two exceptional franchises. Multiple all-time great players. One game. One chance. To win it all. Game 7, nuff said.
