You know that our new champion so basically a basketball fans happy that the spurs a one I just so glad that the heat loss. That's basically added it was like the spurs became America's team because of that hate for LeBron James in the heat. I was also I admit pulling for the spurs just because I feel like. This is Tim Duncan's probably his last for rock 38 years old going on now with his fifth ring and I'm just wondering. Maybe he has second thoughts thinking that they might be able to do it again this year it's amazing because this team. Had a chance to win it last year kind of it just slipped away from so they they could have been two time champions but they'll take this one -- bring home San Antonio their fifth title amazing. For them right and no repeat for the bronze -- creepy gas. Creepy feeling. It's happened to him not middle class LeBron the stale yet that's the big question right now as LeBron can. Out of his contract this summer so he could be playing. I eventually somewhere else. Don't think he's going to be come into the pelicans anytime soon and one -- -- guessing you know what I would look to see all -- LeBron haters local leads to see what would happen if he came here -- -- -- -- we love LeBron now. But -- he gets a lot of heat. That's funny -- a lot of heat but. Because of the decision that he put on the spectacle. Of going enjoying the heat -- -- and they said you know we're gonna win just one just huge -- three just for just you know kept going on and on forever but hey you know he's -- he's still the greatest player in the NBA right now I'm not saying of all time. And the guy was pretty much doing it by himself Dwyane Wade kind of looked like a player on his way out and I would be wondering. Maybe how much he has left in the tank a receiver Pat Riley the GM of those he have in store for them now because it that we have to re tool around him who wanna keep him Miami I don't think LeBron -- going. Where they -- in mind I think he stayed on South Beach for sure but why go to Cleveland. Which people are talking about him returning there a play that terrible owner in years ago.
