Congratulations to the Miami Heat – 2013 NBA Champs

2013 NBA Finals - Game Seven

Actually, I was hoping for the San Antonio Spurs to win.  Yet, I congratulate the Heat on a relentless performance.

Special mentions go out to Danny Green, who broke Ray Allen’s record for 3-point shots made in a finals series; to Chris Bosh for an extremely timely rebound and assist to Ray Allen; and to Ray Allen who tied game 6 with a huge pressure 3-pointer at the end of the shot clock which forced an overtime that prevented the Spurs from closing out the series in game 6; to Mike Miller for his hot 3-point shooting in the beginning and middle of this finals series; and to Shane Battier for ending his awful 2013 play-off shooting slump  by contributing mightily in Game 7 to the Heat’s victory.

As to all future NBA games, I would highly recommend that the league should admonish the referees for not calling obvious fouls during the last few minutes of each game.  The refs may think they by not calling these fouls they are letting the players determine the outcome of each game.  However, the refs are actually changing the outcome of games when they intentionally fail to call obvious fouls.  The rules of the game regarding fouls are the same during the entire 48 minutes of regulation time and during each 5 minute overtime.  In other words, a foul is a foul no matter when it’s committed while the clock is running!!!  It is unfortunate that the refs overlook proper calls because they are swayed by sportswriters, announcers and whoever oversees the referees in the league office.
