Writers from around the Tribune Co. discuss whether Miami Heat President Pat Riley should bring back the core players from his two-time reigning NBA champion team. Feel free to join the conversation by leaving a comment of your own. Ben Bolch, Los Angeles Times As tempting as it might be to make a significant roster move with the rest of the NBA closing in on the Heat, it would also be a public relations nightmare and a touch disingenuous to break up the core of the team before it proves that it can't win another NBA title.

LeBron James deserves better. He's helped deliver two straight NBA titles to the city of Miami, earning a pair of Finals MVP awards along the way. You'd think he'd be able to kick back, relax and enjoy another victory parade Monday, riding with his Heat teammates past some 400,000 fans. But nooooo. Someone forgot to check to see whether the height of an NBA player (very tall) plus that of the double-decker bus King James and his cohorts were riding on might exceed the height of the several overpasses along the parade route.

On Thursday evening, LeBron James won his second consecutive NBA championship and was awarded his second straight Finals MVP award. After scoring 37 points and grabbing 12 rebounds in the Heat's 95-88 win over San Antonio in Game 7, James took the microphone amid a cascade of confetti.  "First of all, I want to give a lot of credit to the San Antonio Spurs," James said. "First-class organization, they pushed us to the limit. I work on my game a lot, throughout the off-season, I put a lot of work into it and to be able to come out here and the results happen out on the floor is the ultimate.

MIAMI - It was a brilliant night for the Miami Heat, boisterous, memorable and fun. It was a very quiet night for one demographic - LeBron James haters. James buffed and shined his legacy by leading Miami to a 95-88 victory Thursday in Game 7 of the NBA Finals at AmericanAirlines Arena. He had 37 points and 12 rebounds against San Antonio, won the Finals MVP award and snuffed out the critical fire that almost continually ringed the NBA's best player. The championship sun finally broke through for him a year ago, but the clouds moved in quickly after his shoddy Game 5 performance Sunday (eight-for-22 shooting, 25 points)

I don't understand why so many basketball fans hate LeBron James (outside of Cleveland). Unless his team is playing your favorite, he should be appreciated and not reviled. He's the best player in the game in this era, excels on both ends of the court, stays out of legal trouble and continues to silence all the haters. The Decision? Bad advice from high school buddies. Who hasn't been there? Leaving the Cavaliers so he could win a championship (or two or three, etc.) Didn't Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen do the same thing when they joined Paul Pierce to win it all in 2008?

He may be the most hated man in Cleveland, but LeBron James triumphed again Thursday night, on the court and in the TV-ratings books. "King James" captured an MVP trophy while leading the Miami Heat to the NBA championship with a Game 7 victory over the San Antonio Spurs. The game delivered a 17.7 overnight rating for ABC, making it the second-highest-rated NBA game ever on the network. (The highest-rated was during the 2010 match-up between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics)

1. This was the best NBA Finals since the Lakers beat the Detroit Pistons in seven games in 1988. That series also featured an epic final two games, with the Lakers repeating as champions after they edged Detroit by one point in Game 6 (after the Pistons were ahead by three with a minute to play) and by three points in Game 7 (fulfilling the championship promise of Coach Pat Riley, who uttered the 1980s version of “Not one ...” after the Lakers polished off the Boston Celtics the previous year)

As night faded into the early morning hours, Miami Heat players celebrating a newly won NBA championship had their choice of South Beach hot spots. Cameo. Club LIV. The Mynt Lounge. Oh, and Denny's. According to his 3:19 a.m. post on Twitter, veteran forward Shane Battier chose a Grand Slam breakfast instead of the hot lights and a pulsating beat. Denny's. a championship tradition. #Grandslam pic.twitter.com/mveVEocxAY - Shane Battier (@ShaneBattier) June 21, 2013 Hours earlier, reporters had asked him where he might spend the evening.
