And the Miami Heat are heading to the NBA Finals once again! This past friday they absolutely slaughtered the Indiana Pacers in game 6 of the Eastern Conference Championships. The Heat were up by over 25 points for most of the game.

Lebron James, Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh, and the Miami Heat are hoeing back to their fourth straight NBA finals and could be bringing home their third NBA championship in a row. This is called a Three-Peat in basketball and has not occurred since Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls in the 1990’s. Lebron James will also be up for another Finals MVP and truly took it to Lance Stephenson, Roy Hibbert, and Paul George in the Eastern Conference Finals.

One interesting thing about Lebron James is that he never gets injured but for us non-professional this isn’t always the case.
