The basketball world had longed to hear it, but Shane Battier is finally an NBA champion. Oh, and LeBron James, too.
The Miami Heat defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder, 121-106, to win their second NBA title and the long awaited first for LeBron James.
LeBron scored 26 points, 13 assists, and 11 rebounds and became the seventh player in history to record two or more triple doubles in an NBA Final. Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh showed up too scoring 20 and 24 points respectively.
For the Thunder, it was a valiant effort, but fell a little short. Kevin Durant scored 32 points and Russell Westbrook had a nightmarish game, shooting just 4-20 as the Thunder just fell apart during Game 5. The Thunder turned the ball over 13 times and shot just 39 percent from three point range.
