June 21 -- It's over. A Finals full of gut-wrenching, brow-furrowing moments has come to an end, crowning the Miami Heat as the kings of the hill for the second straight season.
From Danny Green's rain show to Kawhi Leonard's emergence to vintage Tim Duncan and Tony Parker performances, the Spurs gave it their best shot.
But in the end, LeBron James was too much, taking home his second straight Finals MVP and sending another Western Conference team home a bit sadder than before.
Speaking of sorrow, there won't be another NBA game that counts until November. Twenty-nine other teams will prepare to dethrone the Heat and one team will take measures to ensure the league's first three-peat since 2002.
In the meantime, we have copious highlights to keep us company. Lob City, Jeff Green, DeMar DeRozan, The Mamba and others...thank you for your high-wire hardwood acts.
I eagerly await another round of your theatrics in a few months.
