That is what makes the Game 7 so great.
Tonight, when the final buzzer reverberates through AmericanAirlines Arena, the Eastern Conference Champion will be crowned, and the champion will move on to play the Spurs in the NBA Finals. Game 7 will be known as the culmination of a great upset or as a stepping stone for an emerging dynasty.
Tonight, LeBron James has an opportunity to silence the critics and add another accomplishment to his resumé. At the same time, he can choke and garner the criticism of everyone.
Tonight, as a fan of basketball, I am hoping for a dogfight to the end, because it has the potential to be another great game in NBA history. Ten years from now, I hope we are watching this game on ESPN Classic.
Tip off is in a few hours. I can't wait.
