LeBron James’ Jumper Seals Game 7 Win For The Miami Heat (VIDEO)

The King steps up when it matters most.

Thirty-seven points. Twelve rebounds. Four assists. But perhaps most importantly, this made jumpshot, which put the Miami Heat up two possessions with 28 seconds remaining in the game and, as it turned out, was the dagger that all but sealed up the Heat’s Championship win. What more can LeBron say?

  • Shooting Guard

    no worries i like the comments on here, they’re better than the actual posts

  • lorne

    You can bet your house that a hater like him will find something to say. Que his “Spurs handed them the championship” rant any moment. Or the obligatory, “I bet he can’t Three Peat”, speech. Or his, “Lebron will never even match Kobe’s five rings”, nonsense.

  • duece

    Me and every Knick fan alive want to extend an early morning f you to your handle lol.

  • Sizzle

    If the Heat would have lost this game, the storyline would be how LeBron can’t close (despite Bosh giving them nothing). The LeBron haters would be singing the praises of Saint Tim this morning. None of that is happening. If I was LeBron I would have grabbed the mic and yelled “ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED! ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED!”

  • OfftheWall87

    All the talk about him not being “clutch” has to be over. Stepped up big in the biggest game of his career.

  • Dfrance

    He was labeled the future of basketball at 16, and amazingly, Lebron has managed to exceed those expectations You can’t really call yourself a basketball fan if you don’t appreciate what he’s done, not only this season, but his entire career.

  • pposse

    Love him or hate him…Mario Chalmers has proven himself to be one of the top 10 must have PG’s in the league when it comes to playing in big time games. It may not be fair that all pg’s in the league have not had the same opportunities Mario has, but he has shined in those instances and in ways validated his top 10 pg claim. BOOM!

    Lebron played pretty damn good too.

  • pposse

    he needs to work on his footwork in the post

  • LP @ThisisEther

    Are you drunk? Top 10? Which one of the following PGs would you pick Mario Chalmers over? I’m asking specifically: which one?

    Rondo, Rose, Parker, Kyrie, Deron, Westbrook, Steph Curry, CP3, Rubio, Mike Conley…….(wont even mention Kyle Lowry, John Wall, Brandon Jennings, Steve Nash)

    Don’t say things like this. He is only in those big games simply because he is playing with two top 5 (or 10) players in the league. I understand You’re saying “when it comes to playing in big moments”. But i’d still take any of these guys above chalmers….any of the above guys would make this team 5xs better in the same position. No doubt

  • LP @ThisisEther

    Jump Shot reliability….We can’t ignore the fact that for the first 6 games of this series, he acted like he never made a jumpshot in his life….I’d like to see him not be a streaky shooter and depend on his JUMPER even in the worse times………..had no problems with it during the season…

  • pposse

    well then you better make sure all those guys would drop 20 pts in game 6 and play the second most minutes behind Lebron in game 7. If you look at 3 of the 4 games they won this series, Chalmers was arguably the second best player on the floor. He comes up big in big games.

  • Dfrance

    I think the Spurs D really psyched him out. They were playing off of him so far instead of thinking “these are wide open easy jumpers” he thought “I’m not taking the bait, let me drive”

    Game 7 he took every wide open jumper with confidence and went back to the shooter he was during the season.

  • Dagger

    That’s nice. So do a lot of clutch role players. But was Horry ever top 10 at his position? Or Derek Fisher? You’re reaching, badly.

  • hamidashimono

    Out of the 10 you gave, I would definitely choose Chalmers over Rubio. What has he done in the league? Nothing. Nada.

    Chalmers, on the other hand, is a proven big game performer.

  • PatRileyistheMan

    I agree that Chalmers is a top ten point guard. If he played on a bad team, he would do a lot better, and he came up big time and time again when the Heat needed him this playoff run.

  • pposse

    D Fish – yes. Horry – no, but i’d still have him out there in the big game over almost any SF in his time. The guy imo is a hall of famer.

  • pposse

    also specifically i would take him over Conley for now in the playoffs and that pains me bc i like Conley’s game; the Grizzlies didn’t win one game in the WCF. Chalmers was a major part in atleast two victories in the finals (not the centerpiece but still a major part).

  • LP @ThisisEther

    If you started a team, you would take Chalmers over Conley?

    Now remember, Chalmers has the luxury of not having to guard any pgs FULLTIME because Lebron or Norris Cole will take all the pressure off of him to do this………

    Chalmers plays well in big games, but I don’t know…

  • Dfrance

    If he played on a bad team where the opposition would actually have to pay attention to him, he’d be exposed. He’s a good complimentary player, but not a top tier PG.

  • LP @ThisisEther

    Rubio was like 16 WORKING our TeamUSA players in 2008…..great passer, better D than chalmers…. I’d take him all day over Chalmers…and then I’d take John Wall over him too….

  • LP @ThisisEther

    Mind you, the guys I mentioned play BIG throughout 82 games of the season…not just a few big games…. can’t take that away from them…just a thought

  • pposse

    To start a team i’d take Conley for sure.

    Chalmers was getting killed in here on a regular basis, but the fact remains the guy comes up huge and he deserves some props. Its not easy to be a complimentary ball player especially when your a pg and you have two ball dominant guards starting.

  • pposse

    right but why did it take 7 games to figure that out?!

  • hamidashimono

    Working Team USA in the two games they played? You obviously remember a very different version of events.

    Let me break it down for you. In the two games, he made only ONE field goal (total of 14 pts) and a total of 6 assists. Not to mention, he was playing FIBA rules, which is what he was used to playing at the time.

    If that’s your idea of WORKING over the other team, Chalmers combined Game 6 and Game 7 performances (on a similarly large, if not larger scale than the Olympics): 34 points and 4 assists, is a goddamn freakin’ masterpiece…

    I’ll let you take him over Chalmers…

  • hamidashimono

    I never mentioned the other players on your list. I have a problem with you thinking that Rubio, a guy who has only played two seasons in this league, and never made the playoffs can be an automatic choice over a big-time player like Super Mario.

    Sure, he doesn’t have the gaudy stats, but neither has Rubio. The difference is, Mario isn’t the primary distributor, Lebron is, so his assists suffer. Mario’s role is to be a solid role player for his team and he does that. However, he also is supremely dependable in crunch time situations and more often than not comes up big in those situations. He is a perfect fit for the Miami Heat, and is a very valuable player for them.

    In my opinion, you are definitely overlooking the value (and proven performance) that Mario has delivered.

  • LP @ThisisEther

    Exactly, Birdman was probably on the scouting report more than chalmers this playoffs…

  • LakeShow

    I appreciate.
    And still hate him.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    get out of here with that stupid sh*t. Mario Chalmers proved what?
    .
    He was 6 of 17, 1 of 7 from 3.
    He had twice as many turnovers as assists.
    .
    and his opponent was injured.
    .
    You have got to be kidding me.

  • pposse

    cherry picking stats thats cool; i can do that too..+- in wins and losses? you take a look? notice how in losses they were – with him on the floor but in all victories the heat were + with him on the floor. He comes thru in big games did it in college and does it in the pros

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    ahh, so you think because he was he gets a +# next his name in wins that makes him a top 10 point guard?
    .
    you don’t care that all of his minutes are shared with LeBron? That doesn’t make a difference to you?
    .
    You don’t care that he turned the ball over more often then he created for other’s as his teams point guard?
    .
    Cherry picking stats? you just picked one stat, that literally proves nothing by itself, and acted like that justified you saying that oh so incredibly stupid comment about Chalmers.
    .
    You realize Chalmers has no pressure on him right? And he performed that badly. Yes, he’s not awful in big games, but he isn’t a world beater either. He has historically shot well in big games. That’s really it. You weren’t calling Danny Green a top 10 shooting guard after games 1-4 were you? And why not?
    .
    You just need a way to lessen the credit given to James for whatever nonsensical reason. Using Mario Chalmers, in a game where he was actually pretty sh*tty, is just blatantly dumb.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    D Fish, yes? hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha you should be embarrassed.

  • pposse

    he was in the top 33% in his heyday. He was big at the pg position and played better d than basically all of them.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    the top 33% haha, that leaves 67% of Point Guards as better than him.
    .
    Which would leave him in the top 21, among starters.

  • pposse

    sometimes you have trouble reading…

    Mario Chalmers has proven himself to be one of the top 10 must have PG’s in the league when it comes to playing in big time games

    That was the quote; stop assuming i said he’s a top ten pg. Just re-read what i wrote. Don’t give me this BS about what i implied either please. The guy’s proven himself you should give him some props. He was also the 2nd best player for the Heat in two victories, game 6 and game 2. And the reality is, that should be nothing new, he’s done it his whole career…sadly but true.

  • pposse

    lol i meant top %66 wheres the damn mathpolice at

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    no, he really really wasn’t. REALLY REALLY wasn’t.

    .like you should be embarassed for thinking this. or just stop trying to grab at straws.

    .

    the guys best season was 13 points per game, 4 assists, and f*cking 41% shooting.

    .

    he was also playing for the Warriors….who finished 34-48, and Fisher played 82 games.

    .
    if he was ever a top 15 point guard, that would be is worst season. Not his best.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    touchè, i did not notice that qualifying statement. that’s totally my fault.
    .
    have there even been 15 point guards to play in big games right now tho? lol

  • spit hot fiyah

    i respect that

  • LakeShow

    Can’t do it without Bosh!!!!

  • Feez_22

    Nostalgia. this is all this is. Mario hit a game tying shot at the end of the national championship game v. the memphis tigers to save them. They win and he’s the hero. This is where all of this started.

    If we are talking about the heat as currently constructed, i would take 10+ point guards in a game 7 or a big game period over him. Mario chalmers has the least amount of responsibility as a point guard than any in the entire nba easily which is why to say he is a top 10 must have point guard in a big time game is blasphemous. Let another pg play on the heat without that type of responsibility and tell them that 6-15 with 1-7 from 3 as well as 4 turnovers/2 assists is coming through big time for the team and they would be DELIGHTED.

    Now i am sure you will say “nice cherry picking stats”… well guess what? your basis claim is pretty much rooted in the fact that chalmers hit 1 big shot 5 yrs ago in college so anything even semi-good he does now is just icing on the cake. i’ve seen this type of reasoning before with the likes of tim tebow in football or kemba walker in basketball just recently.

    btw, my list of pg’s i would take over chalmers in a big game given the lack of responsibility they would have on the heat: deron williams, derrick rose, brandon jennings, kyrie irving, kemba walker, russell westbrook, tony parker, ty lawson, chris paul, mike conley, stephen curry, damian lillard.

    I picked all of these players because they can all shoot the 3 ball and have all hit clutch 3s in their career. they are all more talented than chalmers (most of them being infinitely more talented) and given the fact that they are all much better than chalmers is, they would make the heat much better. If a big game is 6-15, 1-7 from 3 and 2asst/4turns ALL OF THE GUYS I LISTED can do that in any game nonetheless a game 7/big game.

    btw… if i added some of the players i wouldn’t pick bc they have no jumper or aren’t that proven… i would almost have 4 starting lineups worth of pg’s i’d take over chalmers outright period. i’d take grievis vasquez, goran dragic, ricky rubio, darren collison, john wall, kyle lowry and rajon rondo over chalmers outright. in a couple yrs i would take norris cole, his BACKUP over him.

    Thus, i would take 12 pg’s over him in a big game and 19 pg’s overall over him and that’s being generous. have a good day pposse but leave that big game rah rah prop up garbage to yourself. chalmers is a below avg point guard in the nba period.

  • pposse

    no there haven’t and I even touched on that in my original comment too..I said that it is unfair cause Mario unlike most pg’s gotten the opportunity to play in these games (not on his own accord) but he’s proved himself in the big games. I can sort of see why he considers himself a top 10 pg, not really, just sort of.

    But I didn’t have to say anything at all, I could have just gave Lebron his props and never had a discussion about Chalmers at all cause now there are guys like Feez that are tripping out amongst other things. If Lebron keeps playing like he did in game 7 i’ll never say another negative word about him; he proved a lot yesterday. The willingness to rise up and shoot the jumpers was enough. We was watching last night and i was saying how this is the scariest version of Lebron after he hit his first couple three’s, there is zero you could against a confident dominant ball player. I am now forced to be salty and heated like NYK fans when MJ used to scorch them smh.

  • pposse

    yo Feez what about game 6 and game 2 in this series alone? He did work. I’ve watched the series and I watched the Heat throughout the playoffs, normally when Chalmers steps his game up the team wins for whatever reason. The bigger game was game 6, history was working against them for game 6. History was working for them in game 7.

    How could you not hold your head up high if your Chalmers? He played thru adversity and in the wins (not lossses, he was horrid int he losses) the Heat got, he was one of the best players on the team.

  • Feez_22

    Chalmers did a good job. he doesn’t show fear which I HIGHLY respect. However, there are other far more talented point guards that don’t show fear either who haven’t been tested in the big game or have been and didn’t get it done because their teammates weren’t up to par or they were the first option (it is probably the easiest to stop a 1st option point guard due to trapping at the top of the key or making them a volume shooter which normally ends in them being inefficient).

    The heat put chalmers in the exact same position he was in college. 2 teams with great talent that didn’t ask chalmers to do the heavy lifting and required him to be a fearless competitor which he was. I don’t knock his competitiveness at all… however, I believe others like kemba and lillard for instance have the same or higher competitiveness, the same/higher level of fearlessness and are both far more talented than chalmers so to just go and say you would take chalmers as a top 10 big game point guard in this league just doesn’t register with me. put kemba/lillard with the host of point guards I listed in that situation and they can match/exceed chalmers in that exact same role.

    Chalmers is a proven winner at every level. he’s good for what he is. I just don’t like the overrating of his abilities. his competitiveness is great. however, i’d still take 12 pg’s in a big game and 19 overall if they were allowed to play the role chalmers is playing which is pretty much not the case any of them are in. chalmers is basically the 4th-5th option so if he has a gr8 game it is amplified. gm 4 against okc last yr though was awesome. I don’t hate him. I just think other pg’s would do what he does and more in the role he is in.

  • Bandwagonfan

    Bcause shooting from far was his weakness. He can drive easily and become the threat in paint if he were closed out.

  • Bandwagonfan

    this is a real hater. He know what he do. There is a big difference between a hater and a dumbass.

  • Bandwagonfan

    He need to work on his shooting. I still dont believe what he did in game 7. Maybe luck

  • pposse

    as long as he shoots with confidence he’ll hit those jumpers imo. He had to been working on his jumper for years upon years by now. For whatever reason in the finals and thruout the playoffs he didn’t show confidence in it; only until when he needed it most he showed super confidence in it. He also shot the lights out in game 6 vs boston last year and way back in game 5 vs the pistons he was shooting lights out too.

    if he studies the way guys like hakeem and mj and kobe created space in the post to put up shots lebron can add like 20 different post moves to his arsenal. Itll be ridiculous to see him have a fadeaway like Kobe or MJ and workout Sf’s in the low post.
