It is my belief that the Miami heat were handed the champion on a silver platter and they should have lost to Boston and/or Indiana source: https://www.youtube.com...

You clearly didn't read my argument I was stating how Miami wasn't deserving to win championship (I was stating the refs handed it to them) I even left a video as further evidence for my argument it is common knowledge Leflop gets very call from the refs and the playoffs were no exception.

The resolution states "did the Heat win the 2012 NBA champions". You were negating this resolution, I was affirming it. I proved that the Heat did win the 2012 NBA championship, while you have not proved that they didn't. Vote pro.

Clearly you did not watch the games closely. Complaining about the refs and their calls is child like. I am not a Heat fan but I know that the game was fair. The Celtics and Pacers both had good playoff runs but could not stand up to the player skill stacked Miami Heat.
