This Hot Hot Hoops Podcast’s episode features the recently concluded 2012 NBA Finals series that was won by the Miami Heat against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Diego Quezada, Mnelik Belilgne and Surya Fernandez take a look back and discuss the coaching match-up between Erik Spoelstra and Scott Brooks whom the former convincingly won; how LeBron James took his game to a much higher level and rose up to the challenge when it counted most, playing a splendid monster ball game with a triple-double performance on closing the series in Game 5 at Miami’s homecourt; how much the Heat’s experience matter in the series after a very disappointing performance in last season’s Finals appearance against the Dallas Mavericks, what lessons LeBron learned from that humbling experience and will we see the OKC team reach the NBA Finals again and have them pit against the reigning champs Miami Heat in the years to come?
