All Spo can do there is say that when one of his guys lands an elbow he expects the same call.

they reviewed it... and then went against the standard that they've set all the playoffs
They can only review for flagrant, I don't think that review can also check if it's an offensive foul. I think Spoelstra needed to initiate that portion.

Miami’s offense looks so different—they run everything through Butler rather than Bam. With AD out not sure I get that

11 points /6 rebounds /3 assists in 12 minutes is pretty dominant. With pretty good defense too. Guessing LJ gets a 40pt triple double
He is always good. He looked like he was possessed by a demon after the GJGE game.

That should have been enough, they set the standard that it's a clear flagrant

Now's the time for all the Heat to start coughing furiously at once to try to get out of this.

What a pathetic showing by Miami. Some great D by LA, but that doesn't explain bricking 7 of 12 FTs and playing scrimmage-level matador defense.

I can't wait to see the Lakers, a healthy Golden State and a matured Denver team go at it next year (as a Portland team and Phoenix scream for respect). The league has incredible talent right now.

Pitino protege Frank Vogel, who started his NBA coaching life in Boston, and playoff Rondo help the Lakers to their 17th title (assuming we’re counting the ones min Minneapolis). 2020 continues to suck

Even leagues with essentially free market systems dont have it this good for the major market team.

The lakers have been a joke of a franchise for almost a decade (up and through trying to steal small business loans in april), yet they got anthony davis to quit on his team and coast to a title.

The league has structural problems that will always keep them from closing the gap on the nfl.

As much as this run sucked, it made me realize how much i actually dislike the nba and wont be spending any time on it next year and probably for years to come. It's just pure wwe garbage.

One detail not to be lost is that the Antetokounmpo family now has an NBA title.

C’mon, we’re not seriously counting this title, right? Four month break in the middle, playoffs played without fans. Lakers just won a nice little exhibition tournament.

No basketball until...December? January? :( My weeknights have already suffered post-Celtics elimination. It’s going to be a long few months.
