The Miami Heat took on the Oklahoma City Thunder Tuesday night for Game 1 of the NBA Finals. The Thunder pulled away from the Heat in the 4th quarter to win, 105-94. This is nothing new for Heat’s LeBron James who made it to the Finals last year only to loose to the Dallas Mavericks. James has a history of chocking in the 4th quarter. So much so that it inspired a series of jokes. I just thought I would share a few jokes before moving onto game highlights:
1. If you ask LeBron James for change for a dollar, he’ll only give you three quarters in return.
2. Apple has just released the LeBron James iPhone. Only vibrates. No rings.
3. LeBron James skipped college in order to avoid the finals.
4. LeBron James should get married because that’s the only way he will get a ring.
5. LeBron? No I don’t think I know him. Doesn’t have a ring to it.
Oh there are so many more. I love cheesy jokes. Maybe some new ones will arise this year if James doesn’t seal the deal. The match-up of Thunder’s Kevin Durant and James proved what I have always believed Durant should have been MVP. For the Thunder Durant had 36 points and 8 rebounds. Compare that to James’ 30 points and 9 rebounds. More importantly Durant did what James has struggled to do: seal the deal in the 4th. In the 4th Durant ran a fast break dunk and made a 3-pointer that gave the Thunder the lead.
Part of the reason the Heat lost, aside from the fact that James should be scoring more than 35 points for them to win, is that Dwayne Wade was having an off night. We all know that if Wade is off than the Heat are screwed. Wade had 19 points and shot 7 of 19. Luckily Shane Battier was there to lend a hand scoring a postseason high of 17 points. Chris Bosh didn’t start and really did add much for the Heat with 10 points and 5 rebounds.
Russell Westbrook came back from a bad shooting start to make 27 points for the Thunder. It’s looking like this is going to be a tough series for the Heat. They are really going to want that Championship to make it past the Thunder.
Lil Wayne finally made it into a Thunder game tonight and was sitting court side. I guess he finally discovered ticketmaster? How us common folk buy game tickets.
