The decision is final: You can argue that Lebron James made the right call coming to Miami. After what seems like an enternity, James can finally claim an NBA championship ring.

No great player has put up with more criticism than James. A lot of the negative attention he brought upon himself.

In the close out game, James had 26 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists. You can’t argue with a triple double. The Heat prevailed in a 121-106 rout of the Oklahoma City Thunder to win to in five games

Think about if for a minute. He left the game along with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh for good with 3:01 remaining in the game. The celebration started early. When the final buzzer let go, so did the confetti. Raining down on the court not unlike 5,6,7,8 future championships.

The Heat took control in the second quarter, briefly lost it and blew it open again in the third behind their role players, James content to pass to wide-open 3-point shooters while the Thunder focused all their attention on him. By having to double team James all night, that left somebody wide open. Mike Miller had seven threes.

It was a remarkable year for the NBA playoff season. In a season shortened by a lock out, the finale was just plain old good basketball.

Congrats to the Heat. OKC proved to be a force to be reckoned with. Lebron put his money where his mouth is. James got his first ring. Dwyane Wade got his 2nd ring.

NBA fans are will have the summer to figure out the next round of Lebron James arguments.
