An emotional Kevin Durant exited Miami with an L, but he promised to work harder than ever this summer with hopes of returning to the NBA Finals someday soon.

I wouldn’t go on comparing Bosh crying to Durant crying. Bosh actually played the best he could in that loss. Durant didn’t make a claim that they’d win, “Not one, not two, not three, not four…” Miami got it right this year by not celebrating excessively in the off-season.
I have to agree with JTaylor on what I said in the past.
Difference between Bosh and Durant crying:
BOSH = FELL TO THE GROUND AND HAD TO BE CARRIED TO THE LOCKER ROOM WHILE ATTEMPTING TO HIDE FROM THE WORLD IN HIS HANDS.
KD = GOT TEARY EYED, NEVER HID HIS DISAPPOINTMENT, AND WENT UP TO HIS MOM AND SAID “DONT WORRY AS SOON AS LeBRON RETIRES THIS IS MY LEAGUE”
Someone needs to get stripped of his sixth man title…
Harden’s lackluster play trickled down to everybody else except Russ. KD dribbling too much getting stripped is in my opinion the direct result of the beard not showing up. Russ didn’t even bother giving him the ball on offense knowing it would result in a charge or a missed shot. Harden’s play was absolutely pathetic all series. And I absolutely worship the beard.
Congrats to the Heat though. Happy for Battier who worked as hard as anybody else…always has.
smh. To get to the finals you have to be better than 28 other teams. Harden was great against Dallas, LA, and San Antonio. imo – it is stupid to act like performing bad over a 5 game stretch somehow negates everything a guy did over the other 95 or so games they played. Want to revoke his 6th man trophy and give it to Jason Terry? Who he just destroyed in the 1st round? Y’all can complain about how people perform in the finals all you want, i don’t give a damn, but stop over reacting. If reacting to one series like that was at all rational, LeBron and the Heat would not have even made the playoffs this year, let alone come out and won the title, considering how people were reacting last June. James Harden, Kevin Durant, and the Thunder are now getting a similar level of ridiculously misplaced criticism. Can’t a team just win or lose because one was better than the other? It really is that simple.
young kids can cry, it’s all part of the process, he’ll learn from it and he’ll get a chip one day
People just like Durant better than Bosh and their opinions on people’s actions are driven mainly by how they feel about them personally, not any higher standard. Denying this is futile.
kd cries and people feel for him. Bosh cries and people laugh….wtf..
KD is going to get his ring. I’m a Lakers fan, but I was rooting for the Thunder this year. Their players (KD, Westbrook, Harden) are still young, up and coming stars. And what’s wrong with crying? It shows how much Bosh and Durant care about the game and winning. Isn’t that what a true player should be like?
