Are you going to watch the finals? Who do you think will win? The Miami Heat of the OKC Thunder?
Lebron James silenced some of his critics with his performance during game 6 and 7 against the Boston Celtics. But James, as well as the super-team of James, Wade, and Bosh, have yet to win a title. Of course, Durant and the Thunder haven’t won a championship either.
So who will win the NBA finals?
