A financial settlement has been reached between Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade and ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches, bringing to an end a long and bitter divorce saga. The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that as part of the settlement, Funches will receive $5 million, four cars and a mansion she once shared with Wade. There is also an agreement that says neither side can make disparaging comments about each other, the Sun-Times reports. The settlement comes three days after Funches sat alongside a busy Chicago street outside a courthouse with a sign implying that the three-time NBA champ had left her homeless and destitute.

Dwyane Wade's 10-year-old son, Zaire Wade, seems to have inherited much of his father's basketball skills. How much? So much that the fifth-grader feels comfortable trash talking his pop, who just won his third NBA title with the Miami Heat last week. The day after getting dunked on by Chicago's Taj Gibson last month, the elder Wade described his ever-compassionate son's reaction on Twitter: I had 2 laugh at ths..I was playing my oldest son Zaire on his nerf rim & he dunked & said Gibson while screaming..L2MS Kids u gotta luv em - THREE (@DwyaneWade)

Two down, six to go! Miami's Big Three aren't even a third of the way to fulfilling the championship pledge LeBron James made on that sorry summer day in 2010 when he sat on a stage inside AmericanAirlines Arena and said, "Not two, not three, not four, not five, not six, not seven. " If you watch the YouTube replay of that regrettable moment, Heat President Pat Riley can be seen clasping his hands in front of his seemingly disbelieving face, his eyes slowly blinking. PHOTOS: NBA Finals -- Miami vs. San Antonio Here's the thing: James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh haven't blinked while making three consecutive trips to the NBA Finals, including back-to-back championships.

MIAMI -- Barely 12 hours after one of the most stunning outcomes in NBA Finals history, the Miami Heat went back to work. After all, there's a Game 7 on Thursday. LeBron James had 16 points in the fourth quarter of Game 6, pushing the Heat toward a 103-100 overtime victory undoubtedly aided by Ray Allen's three-point shot with 5.2 seconds left in regulation. What's next for James, who finished with 32 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds? There's obviously nothing bigger in the NBA than a Game 7 in the Finals, the first he's ever experienced.

Danny Green has put on quite a show for the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals -- and his efforts have played a big role in helping the Spurs move to within one win of the franchise's fifth NBA title. The guard has hit a Finals record 25 3-pointers against the Miami Heat, shooting a remarkable 66% from beyond the arch (25 for 38). If Green manages to torch the Heat again in Game 6 on Tuesday, it might be enough to land him a Finals MVP honor -- not bad for a guy who was playing D-League ball two seasons ago. "Right now, everything is working well for me," Green said after Sunday's win. "I'm feeling truly blessed right now. " But can Green keep up his torrential pace?

BOX SCORE: Miami 109, San Antonio 93 James was there too, taking run after run at the basket with success at the AT&T Center.

1. Stories of Dwyane Wade's demise were greatly exaggerated. He was too old. His knee wouldn't hold up. He had lost his edge. Stop it,  already. Wade was easily the best player on the court Thursday night during the Miami Heat's 109-93 victory over the San Antonio Spurs in Game 4 of the NBA Finals. He was smart. He was spry. He was prolific. Wade finished with 32 points, six rebounds, six steals and four assists, becoming the first player in the Finals to record 30 points and six steals  since Isiah Thomas in 1988.
