This game came down to two plays IMO

Westbrooks foul

and Lebrons three with 2:50 left in the game.

The three that broke psd, is that it is that the final nail in the coffin for anyone who has tried to criticize him for his performance late in games?

Also for those of you who have never had severe cramps while trying to run a race or play any sport, it is impossible to continue and it can take a couple of minutes to get your legs loose again.

Hitting that three while fighting cramps was huge imo.

So what did you guys think about the shot and the effect it had on the game?

1. Wade's block that led to a transition basket from an injured LeBron.

2. LeBron's 3 on one leg.

3. Chalmers drive and lay up late in the game.

4. Battiers tip to Chalmers on the jump ball that led to the FTs.

Those were the 4 biggest plays of the game.

If a Kobe or Durant makes that shot, they would be compared to Bernard King. But since it's Lebron, it'll be forgotten the next time he misses a big shot and he'll be continued to be called unclutch, even if he gets a ring.

These are all good plays, but you're completely forgetting when LeBron actually gets injured and the Thunder rush downcourt 5 vs. 4 and Wade BLOCKED THE HECK out of the ball. Then he tosses it down the line to LeBron who hit a bank shot.

Wade saved the Heat there and LeBron hit two HUGE shots on one leg.

Oh get off your high horse clown. It was a big time shot and changed the game, sparked a 7-0 run that lead to a game 4 win. If the heat close out within the next two games it could be the most pivotal play in the series.

and I'm a fan of neither as well, it doesn't change the fact that people like you like to discredit lebron. If it leads to a championship that's the best shot he's made in playoffs, and a proverbial game changer in the series. Consider the difference between 2-2 ad 3-1 with 1 home game left. Factor in his injury, yea it's a big time play. I don't have a ranking for you in terms of finals shots, but one day it'll be considered one of lebrons greatest plays, and a big time finals moment, maybe you'll appreciate it more then novice.

One of the greatest shot in finals history with more than 2 mins left to play In the game maybe.

Honestly good shot, but chalmers and wade were so much more critical down the stretch than james, not to mention the battier hustle play on the jump ball

It was a great shot but you guys have to have higher standards. Unless you have never seen a finals series before them you have no business calling an open 3 pointer with 2:30+ left, one of the greatest shots ever.

I'm not a james hater, just being honest.

I don't like to discredit Lebron. He is GREAT! But that doesn't prove anything as far as what is being discussed. That 3 wasn't ANYWHERE near one of the greatest nba finals plays in history. That is just stupid to say. Come on...

I agree with you. I've watched big shot after big shot just like that in every finals series since 89. Again I'm not taking away for his value because he's been incredible but that shot was not this legendary thing ppl are trying to sell it as. He wasn't Willis Reed injured when taking that shot and he was open.

I'd like to know how many playoff/final series these people have watched. Christ Bob horry or derek fisher or john paxson or steve kerr have hit 3-4 shots just as big themselves.

With all the talk about him being a choker, he can't hit the big shot, KD is the best in the league. Then he walks onto the court barely able to walk and bangs down the three that changed the games momentum.

Exactly and I don't think either of us are detracting from how spectacular Lebron has been this series but the reality is that every Finals series has pivotal shots like this being made by big stars at big moments. It doesn't make any less special or important but don't try and qualify it on the same level as say, Game 6 Jordan v the Jazz. Saying its one of the all time great shots is just a bit of a reach.

Whatever my answer would be to that question makes no difference. You jumped the gun and gave too much credit to a play that excited you. The answer to your question here has nothing to do with one of the greatest shots in finals history... It just doesn't. Stop grasping for straws. It was a great shot. It was big for the Heat. It was one of Lebrons biggest shots so far, yes. However, it was not one of the biggest shots in finals history. It just wasn't, bro.

And it doesn't mean sh** if his teammates don't hit several more key shots and wade doesn't make an incredible defensive block in the last two and a half minutes.

The real story is the rest of Lebrons supporting cast stepping and finishing the last 2 minutes with lebron injured and unable to help.

In the mind of most nba fans (excluding miami), Lebron will always have an asterisk next to this championship. Just like barry bonds has one for the home run title.

This. I will be and apparently you will be one of those ppl who were lucky enough to see Jordans career, esp playoff career and Lebrons as well. There have been so many great plays and so many great series. I'm very glad I'm getting to see Lebron and I do think he is great and is a special player. But to think of all the plays i finals series I've personally watched in the last 15 years or so... There have been many. I guess my perspective is different than some who are newer to the nba

Chitownbears, relax man this debate isn't personal. No body is taking away from the phenomenal performance your boy Lebron has put forth. All we are saying is that calling that shot one of the few benchmark shots in NBA history is a little outrageous and irresponsible in terms of historical perspective. Yes it was great but what was greater was the way this team finally rallied behind lebrons leadership and put forth a TEAM effort to close the game while their star was ailing on the sideline.

Lebron hit a big shot but what's been missing from miami is that total team effort and tonight they got it down the stretch and certainly Lebron was crucial to that rally but it was a complete team effort.

Just dont over exaggerate this historical significance of things is what ppl are critical of. Heck this wasn't even a clinching game. We don't even know how the series will turn out. If oKC wins 3 in a row (not likely) that shot wont mean much will it.

The thread is about that specific shot, did you know that, I guess you didn't. Take a night class on reading comprehension. The question was about his 3. It wasn't about what battier, chalmers, or wade did after. The shot was a momentum changer that took all the wind out of OKC. He was hurt and he still hit the big shot.

The thread isn't about clutch shots or with time expiring shots. It was about that shot. And it will go down as a legendary shot in my opinion. It will be talked about in a couple years as a huge shot in LeBrons career.

Dr.J's shot is replayed for the sheer athleticism and jumping ability it to took to make such a shot. To compare that legendary shot to an OPEN, Stationary jump shot is INSANE. Listen to yourself, this has got to be some kind of sick joke.

So Dr. J's shot wasn't one of the greatest in Finals history? It was just a symbol of athleticism. Lulz you are funny.

Then LeBrons is the greatest for sheer will to hit the big shot even though he was injured, even though the critics said he couldn't, even though everyone in the sports world had OKC winning the series in 5 or 6.

Dr. J lost his game. LeBron's could be argued to be a better shot because it took the breath out of OKC and they never recovered. It was a dagger. Unlike j's who's shot was just fancy and meaningless.

Anyone who cares to look at the facts can see I've states on five occasions In this thread that Lebrons shot was a huge, big time shot.

Stick to the facts when your paraphrasing my opinions.

Ps. I'm a respected school teacher and coach in my area and your cute comments calling me sandusky are over the line and classless just like you've proven yourself to be throughout this entire thread.

that's the closest lebron could be to MJ's flu game.

Obviously not one of the greatest moment in Finals history but could be the defining moment of this series, considering he did it on one leg and hasn't been shooting well from the outside.

who knows, that was the game changer (taking the lead after OKC came back) and Miami never looked back.

They keep showing Jordan's flu-like symptoms in the commercials as well so we'll never know how "amazing" it was till like a few years down the road.

It was definitely the defining moment of the series however and probably his career. That his will is stronger than his body and it took 3 chances (finals appearances) to actually show up.

fantastic shot. I was at the game and I immediately thought it was a Willis Reed moment.

HEAT were up two, then Lebron goes down and the Thunder score a quick 4 and the HEAT seem LOST on both ends. Feels like the Thunder might steal the game. Then Lebron limps back on the court and HEAT go on a 7-0 run, including a go-ahead (and stay-ahead) 3 from Lebron, who was just seconds beforw writhing in agony on the HEAT bench. Just a spectacular series of events in which Lebron was able to ease the nerves of his teammates and make a momentum changing play.

Botched defense by Sefolosha and OKC. With Lebron clearly not being able to drive, they should have been playing right up in his grill. Thabo was a million miles away.

My thoughts exactly. If some fans actually believed that Lebron was faking the injury, how do they explain him sitting out that last minute? There is no way he would do that if he was anywhere near capable of playing well. He knew he would be a detriment to the team with his lateral quickness on the defensive side and made the right decision to sit out.

Lebron might be a great player....but he chased.....

He's like the 35 year old chick who goes to the bar and jumps on the guy who might have money and might be looking to settle down.

I don't care how many rings he has, I will NEVER RESPECT HIM

Yeah, let's disrespect a guy for wanting to win. **** it!! Let's disrespect a guy for giving up HIS team, to join another team, and in the face of plenty of adversity, is on the verge of his first title!! When I watch basketball, I want to see guys play with heart and take the game serious, so when a guy does all that I mentioned above to up his chances of winning, nothing but respect man!

Lebron and his fake willis reed moment. that guy is so fake, I think he really milks these in game injuries to make himself look better. Maybe he is faking the injuries so he doesnt have to play the last 2 minutes and not be criticized...

Lebron has always been a bit fake to me, but congrats to him and the Miami Heat. they definitely earned this.

I used to play soccer in college.

Lebron has been faking or milking injuries his whole career as if it would make the moment greater when he makes a big shot. He may get his ring this year. He might end up with 5 when its all said and done.

but in the court of public opinion, he took the easy way out.

In the mind of most nba fans (excluding miami), Lebron will always have an asterisk next to this championship. Just like barry bonds has one for the home run title.

This was one of the most rigged series I've ever seen, and I've been watching this stuff for over 2 decades.

this, stern clearly raised the game sliders for the heat at the end of the game allowing lebron to make that three

No, he just disabled the clutch factor in the in-game settings.

Lebron is great, I don't think anybody is hatin' on Lebron.

Although, with the cramps episode, if they had lost that game and gone on to lose the series, I'm not sure any of us would've heard the end of it, ever.

That said, Lebron seems to have to muscle inside to score, he is not a scorer like, say, Kobe, who can light it up from a vast number of angles and ranges. He seems to me more like a Barkley type guy.

Great player though, would do well on the Lakers...

I just get iritated when people try to downplay the shot. We still see the Dr. J swoop play all the time even though they lost the game and it happened at an insignificant point.

LeBron has been told he is not clutch for the last 9 years.
LeBron has a leg cramp and can barely walk.
LeBron steps up when the shotclock is expiring in a tied game and hits the big 3.
The shot kills OKC's psyche and the HEAT go on to win game 4.

Big shot. And has a place in history as a great shot.

I love how when Paul Pierce gets wheeled off the floor in a wheel chair for a shoulder injury a few years back in the Finals and comes back to hit some big shots its called heroic.

But when Lebron loses his legs to cramps, hes called a faker and a clown. Leg cramps are no joke during a game and when they start locking up your toast. He hit the biggest shot of the game with no legs and caused he teammates to rally around him and have the confidence to close the game, when he was no longer physically able to. Now grant it, it wasnt no Willis Reed or Jordan Flu type moment, but it was a huge play and showed the type of warrior/leader/floor general that the man is.

James is not one of my favorite players but the same people who rip the man when he has an off night, need to give him his due when he hits a clutch shot like he did last night. He's not only been the best individual player on the floor all series but he's also done a epic job at making those around him play beyond their own potential and limitations.

I think LeBron kinda pulled a Pierce last night and kinda over exaggerated it a little(Pierce's was actually a knee injury but probably wasn't to the extent of being taken off a wheel chair. Even though he said there was a ton of pain he wouldn't be able to play in game 2, I don't buy it.) And now I'm not a hater, LeBron is the best in the game and it was probably the most clutch shot so far in the series. And the troll that's saying it's one of the best in NBA Finals history is out of his mind.

Are you sure it was a knee, I couldve swore I saw a replay of it recently that said it was a shoulder injury? If I misspoke I apologize, my point was simply that some players just cant win in the court of public opinion.

My stance is both Pierce and Lebron's moments have to be taken at face value and you have to trust that neither elite athlete would intentionally fake the severity of an injury. Although, Im not ruling out that injuries are milked, however I would prefer to be a sunny optimist and assume that everyone plays the game with integrity and honor.

Again, I apologize if I misrepresented the facts, I couldve swore I saw recently that Pierce's injury was a shoulder injury; thats why I attached so much irony to him being wheeled off the floor.

Yes LeBron was faking that is why he sat the last two minutes after he hit his shot. :facepalm::facepalm:

Okay, if the Heat win the series I think that could be considered of the biggest shots in nba finals history.

There were so many things on the line:

- Injured(cramps)
- He's not clutch
- He can't win a ring

And he overcame all of that by hitting that shot with the game on the line.
