Welcome, South Florida, to the gates of sports heaven. Immortality is one win away. This is Game 7 of the NBA Finals.
With one basketball game, the 2012-13 Heat, in its 25th season as a franchise, has the chance to go down as a back-to-back NBA champion and one of the best teams in Miami sports history.
So much has happened already to set this team apart. It won a franchise record 66 games in a sparkling regular season that included a 27-game winning streak. LeBron James won his second consecutive MVP Award and fourth in five years. The Heat outslugged the Indiana Pacers with a Game 7 victory in the Eastern Conference finals and willed itself to this point by surviving elimination in Game 6 of the Finals.
