The Miami Heat beat the Oklahoma City Thunder, 121-106, to win the NBA Finals on Thursday night in Miami. It was an especially sweet victory for LeBron James, who had 26 points, 11 rebounds, and 13 assists in the decisive Game 5 of the series. The No. 1 draft pick in 2003, straight from high school, James famously left the Cleveland Cavaliers two years ago to pursue a championship ring in Miami, with fellow stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. They lost their shot last year, falling to the Dallas Mavericks in six games.
