In the wake of LeBron James and the Miami Heat's triumphant Game 7 victory over the San Antonio Spurs, here's a few songs from the teams native lands that might help them celebrate (or mourn).
The heartbreaking distaste from the Game 6 choke is surely still lingering in the thoughts of Tim Duncan and the rest of the San Antonio Spurs. With a double-digit lead going into the fourth quarter, and a trophy and champagne at the ready, the decorated basketball franchise simply collapsed. Seconds away from being crowned the champions, the Spurs now head home to Texas singin' the blues. Fortunately for them (or perhaps unfortunately), San Antonio is home to some of the greatest blues artists of all time. Here's a song from San Antonio native Steve Earle that point guard Tony Parker may have just added to his playlist. A true transcendentalist might say the NBA is just a stupid institution of society anyway.
In the face of defeat, and with the entire city of Miami itching to go to sleep so that they could wake up and get in a solid beach day, the Miami Heat pulled off an improbable come-from-behind win thanks to Ray "Jesus Shuttlesworth" Allen's late 3-pointer in Game 6. After finishing the job in Game 7, LeBron James and the rest of the Miami Heat were deemed champions of the NBA for the second straight year. As most of us know, Miami has a pretty wild and extravagant club scene. It's safe to assume that the Heat went out for "a couple drinks" after winning the title. Courtesy of Miami's own KC and the Sunshine Band, check out this song that Heat star Dwyane Wade may (or may not) have been blasting from his Dre Beats as he spruced himself up for the big night out.
Congratulations to the 2013 NBA Champion Miami Heat. And hopefully they won't be singing the blues for too long down in San Antonio.
