After losing in the NBA Finals, the Thunder aren’t supposed to pick until the 28th choice in the first round on Thursday night.
LeBron James had 26 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists, leading the Heat in a 121-106 rout of the Thunder on Thursday night to win the NBA Finals in five games.
King James finally accomplished what many hoped and prayed he would not, win it all. Not only did LeBron win, he did it with style, class and an impressive NBA Finals performance.

The lead was 10 late in the third quarter, and the Thunder were on the cusp of grabbing command of the NBA Finals once again. But then the mistakes started.
LeBron James had a 32-point night, and the Heat held on for a 100-96 victory over the Thunder on Thursday night, to even the series at one game apiece.
Westbrook has been dealing with the injury since the Western Conference finals but did not wear any sort of wrap during Oklahoma City’s Game 1 victory on Tuesday night.
