Champions! Miami Heat defeats Oklahoma City Thunder to win second NBA title 

The king finally has his ring. Two years ago, LeBron James chose to team up with Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade in Miami and build an instant basketball dynasty. The Heat fell two wins shy of beginning that reign in 2011. On Thursday, Miami’s rule over the NBA officially started. 

The Heat defeated the Thunder 121-106 at AmericanAirlines Arena in Game 5 of the NBA Finals to clinch the world championship. After losing the first game of the series, the Heat won four straight to earn the franchise’s second NBA championship. While the Heat’s victories in Game 2, 3 and 4 were close and decided by only a few possessions, the clincher was an emphatic statement of basketball greatness. Read more here:

The roller's weight has been reduced dramatically through innovative design. It has the added benefit of rolling sideways on two wheels to easily navigate tight spaces, such as airline aisles. 

The new Retrospective 7 shoulder camera bag is available in three color options. Designed for standard DSLR systems, its classic design along with modern improvements create the perfect shooter's bag. This lightweight shoulder bag comes in fabrics that offer a sense of "retro" style that appeals to many. A rear pocket has been designed to hold an iPad or an 11" MacBook Air. 

Keep your most important photography storage device, your SD cards, secure and organized. The SD Pixel Pocket Rocket keeps nine of those small but invaluable SD cards safely stored. 

The number one sin in photography is running out of power. The DSLR Battery Holder 2 and the DSLR Battery Holder 4 secure two or four standard size camera batteries. 

 The Strobe Gel Wallet stores photography gels in a neat and organized manner and keeps them protected. The five pockets have a large capacity. This enhances the ability to store and locate gels easily.

Pivotal Victory

Miami Heat rallies to victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 3, leads series 2-1

LeBron James had 29 points and 14 rebounds to power the Heat to a pivotal Game 3 win and 2-1 series lead

LeBron James walked to the free-throw line with 16.2 seconds left and spread his arms outward to silence the crowd.

He wanted it quiet in his house. He needed total concentration. In unison, thousands of people made that shushing sound we all remember from elementary school. The din diminished. Still, James missed the first foul shot. The arena gasped.

James stepped back to the line, exhaled and made his second foul shot to give the Heat a four-point lead. Finally, it was enough. Survival. Russell Westbrook missed a three-point attempt moments later and the Heat held on for a 91-85 in Game 3 of the NBA Finals at AmericanAirlines Arena. Read more here:

Late start + Heat loss = bad mood

The Miami Heat's Udonis Haslem scrambles for a loose ball by the Thunder's Kevin Durant.
Reach for that fourth cup of joe Wednesday? You’re not alone. The late start to Heat games is making us tired, cranky and less productive at work, a sleep specialist says.
At coffee shops and bagel joints across South Florida Wednesday, two major gripes more or less summed up the region’s general sense of malaise:

1. Does the Heat have anyone who can cover Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook?

2. Why the heck do they start these NBA Finals games so late?

Mornings after any Heat playoff loss are sour in these parts, but Wednesday’s mood was particularly bleak. Sleep deprivation piled on top of disappointment and anger has that effect.

Even Thunder fans are enamoured with LeBron James

Miami Heat defeats Boston Celtics in Game 7, advances to NBA Finals. Face Oklahoma City in Finals after tense Game 7 victory against the veteran Celtics


The series comeback complete, LeBron James turned to Dwyane Wade and gave his teammate a hug. Around them an arena shook with excitement but their faces bared no emotion.

For them, there was nothing to celebrate. There was only more focus.

The Heat defeated the Celtics 101-88 on Saturday in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals. After trailing Boston 3-2 in the best-of-7 series, Miami won two consecutive games to earn its second East championship in a row.

Now it’s onto Oklahoma City and the NBA Finals where the Heat hopes to silence the ghosts from last year’s collapse to the Dallas Mavericks. READ MORE HERE

Will Bosh be back for Game 5 Tonight?

The Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade reacts after missing the three pointer to end the game in overtime.

The Celtics Keyon Dooling celebrates after hitting a three pointer in the second quarter.

ESPN reported that Chris Bosh likely will be activated for Tuesday night’s Game 5, but Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said nothing is definite. 


Facing a resilient, resurgent opponent with championship pedigree, the Heat hopes a return home and a possible return of Chris Bosh can deliver a sorely needed boost.

The Heat is hopeful Bosh will be able to play in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals on Tuesday night, barring any red flags in his workouts in front of coach Erik Spoelstra. But Spoelstra cautioned Monday, “It’s premature to say he’ll definitively play.”    Read more here:

Celtics Beat Up on Heat in Boston

Garnett, Rondo help host Celtics cut Miami Heat’s series lead LeBron James scored 34 points, but Kevin Garnett was too much for the Heat, which fell in Game 3 to the desperate Celtics.

BOSTON -- This is likely the final postseason for Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen in Celtics green. You just knew this city and its rocking and rambunctious arena wasn’t going to let those guys get out of town without one more seismic home-court victory in the playoffs.

Two days after handing the Celtics a demoralizing defeat in the Eastern Conference finals, the Heat watched its 2-0 series lead get cut in half Friday night at TD Garden. For Garnett, Allen and Paul Pierce, the energy inside the building was like a steroid pumped directly into old legs. The place vibrated like a tin-roofed shed in a category-3 storm.
