BS. Whose three was more improbable, Ray Allen’s in the corner to tie the game OR Tony Parker’s from the top of the key, a spot from which he hadn’t hit a three all season, to get the Spurs within striking distance? One of the best shooters ever shot the game’s easiest three point shot, so that question answers itself. And yet because of that one shot, you and others insist on the narrative that the Heat stole the series. Even though they still had to win overtime. And Game 7. And were the reigning champs. It’s just incorrect. Come on, Bill. You’re a basketball historian. You know championships don’t happen because of luck.
