Got a request? Leave a comment here. />The best plays from the 2012 NBA Finals between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Miami Heat. LeBron James wins his first title, and I haven't completed my Finals clinching games yet, so here's a start.

That OKC core would have been better than GS core
Throwback to when 3-1 leads weren't blown
Carl Lawan
Sad that after this finals, OKC never reached the finals since then
Hash Money
OKC had a super team ...westbrook, durant, harden , ibaka.... they still couldn't beat miami
Live From The Grave
OKC blew up a dynasty they had 3 MVP's smh
that one handed alley oop by Wade at 1:10 is very underrated
Kevin Perez
Such a well coached team by Spolestra. If only Lebron had that kind of Coach this year. He primed Lebron to his most efficient he can be. Efficiently designed plays.
back when lebron always tried to cover that hairline with a sweatband
By todays standards I'd say this is a fair and exciting finals match up. Back then I just hated the Big 3 of Miami, now I don't know what I was complaining about anymore. - Compared to the GSW Miami games this was pretty suspenseful.
back when kendrick perkins was a starter lol
Bill Huang
bronnies first champ
4 Ktrey
Back when the finals were exciting

20:12 the respect between KD and Lebron. Lebron told him he'll get his ring soon. That same hug would occur in the 2017 nba finals, with KD finally having his own ring
I'm glad that NBA moved from to 2-3-2 format and change to 2-2-1-1-1..even you're team down from 3-1 you still have a chance to win a championship

Ramel gotvocalspierce
Bosh we will miss him
Mark Ponsal
What a game for Miami I miss this moment
William Solorzano
LEBRON AND D WADE the worst smelling blood
Samuel Canaan
Back when Harden was decent on defense
brown boy
Wow i didn't know that james harden was in okc
Sam Presti, the man known for breaking up a team that had 3 future MVP's
Harden wasn’t one of the top players on that team. If I remember correctly it was Ibaka, KD, and Russ. Harden was a 6th man.
I Know De Wae
The best play in that game was the 10 second hug from LeBron and Durant, I remember watching that Finals, I let up a tear.
Bitoy Pangit
Wow that's very nice team Miami heat team that's my team
Marco Alexander
Just Picture If OKC Had Harden, Durant, Now They Would Of Won And Beat GS Plenty Of Times....
Andy Raphael
i see why kd left because the ball ended up in westbrook hands and it would stop no ball movement
Damien Bermudez
Did anyone see my boi Mike Miller lock down harden on that one play
OMG they got Westbrook,Durant ,Harden,Ibaka,Fisher!
Basta king james
If you think about it, this game probably defined the modern NBA.
Joseph Nguyen
aftermath: russell westbrook becomes mvp, kevin durant wins 2 NBA championships, and okc thunder regretted trading james harden
Did KD join the Warriors for pay back for 2012?
Kimsan Chea
Westbrook greedy!! That’s why the warriors won back 2 back cuz they played as team..
Rajon Rondo
This series came down to veteran depth. Heat had Mike Miller and Shane Battier who knew their roles and were on the last leg of their career. In this series I feel like if OKC had that veteran depth this series could have gone to the distance. Not saying they would win but experience plays such a HUGE role. Russ, KD, Beard & Ibaka were all so young.
Could u do Knicks-Celtics game 1 of the 2013 playoffs? Melo went off in that game
little man1981 rich man
Okc was were big 3 too KD, J harden R Westbrook
Axis Gaming
This has had to be the most biased officiating ever though
christian rash
every thing went right for the heat in this game. they were good but so rarely did everyone in their rotation play well. up until this game everyone was close and could've hone either way
Sangkee Jang
Isn't that a super team? KD James Harden and Westbrook?
Patrick Silangcruz
this is my question and answer to MINE im not a fan of heat but if GS NOW AND HEAT 2012-2013 FINALS i GO TO HEAT BECUZ HEAT 2012-2013 IS SO OP so this is my answer if heat 2012 vs gs 2017-2018 4-3 win heat :P i guess BUT THIS IS 2011-2012 XD
Sharp Peng
KD, Westbrook, Harden 3 mvps..what can you say OKC
True YC99
2012-Miami was the third quarter team 2017-GSW was the third quarter team
Woody Magic
thnx so much for this vid I actually remember requesting this game on another one of your videos. I can't wait for the next one
Marc Valdez
Tho would've been the greatest finals ever if russ and harden were in their primes
Just IMAGINE if okc stayed together
Marco Padilla
this okc team is young they are not in their prime yet and durant was the the only star . and now they are in their prime but not together
Kahn Yoo
Harden coming off the bench :')
Lebron James
Okc: our master plan is to make harden guard the best player in the league
No Direction
This DUO Wade & Lebron is really The BEST 🔥
Jaime Garcia
Lebron wade bosh battier miller Chalmers had a super team easily can beat Oklahoma city thunder
Samuel Attias
Thunder eliminated by heat 12
Its okay to come back to watch this and cry just a bit right 😭
Julian Shipp J.R.
I love both teams but I'm more of a miami fan
Lola Larios
i think it would've been cool if kobe didn't get hurt and it was LAL vs MH
Mike Miller destroys this game.
Christopher Emmons
back when there were no snakes
SanctumGaming Q
If OKC stayed the same and gave away ibaka to keep harden Westbrook,harden,durant then Adams comes along in the draft would change the NBA forever ,Lebron would stay on the heat because this team would be too good lol, and CP3 would have never joined the rockets , warriors wouldnt be able to beat the thunder so they would never win a chip curry, could be traded what if CP3 or Curry landed on with Lebron in order to take on this OKC team
How I wish Nick was traded with KD
20:48 KD walks away with NO F's towards good sportsmanship 😂
Vernon Chinn
Durant has harden Westbrook ibaka come on as a baller I can’t like him yeah he good yet weak
Sam I Am
If Harden wins MVP LeBron will be only player in history to beat a 73 win team and a team with 3 NBA MVPs on it.
Patrick Silangcruz
2012-2013 heat is stronger than 2011-2012
Jared Lewis
This okc team and Miami team both would beat the warriors.
I miss 2012 ;(
Back before James harden got foul calls every single shot
Nok Kan Leung
westbook is the only one that can defend KD and harden
Jason Yang
when durant westbrook harden ibaka are on the same team they lose because they were just too young
I forgot Chris bosh was a person
Budik Lagrata
Mike Miller exposed OKC lmfao
2012 Miami was the BEST!
Yuepheng Darbonnier
low key seems like no one cared about that game😂😂
Foodie Societyyy
Lebron beat Russ KD and Harden don’t ever forget 🐐
Jefferson Cuizon
The ref patted eric tssk blind of money
Took a lockout and refs to give lechoke his first title
mazzu Mazzuco
westbrook's desperate attempts are kinda lame

4 Ktrey
Mike miller have a burner that game 🤮🤮🤮🔥
Ramel gotvocalspierce
Kd joined the warriors and this is why championship hungry im a lebron fan I always been when ur guy dont win a chip.than u get mad so when u think about it it all comes out
GOKU ssj
Now KDurant won Two. Back to bak championships on lebron an swept him
bobby Valentino
15:16 lebron says, "Not yet, play ball" such a 🐐
Andres Caiced
Mike Miller and Norris Cole made clutch 3's in this game. It was a perfect game and contribution from everyone. First time LeBron was on a team that actually had a good nucleus around him
Byan Johnson
Should of kept Harden these guys were on the come up
Faithful Collections
God Damn that OKC "team" was f**king good. They are the 3rd best NBA team ever assembled. (Behind a 90's and 70/80's team). They were better than these Miami Heat. So why didn't they win? They did not have quality team relationships with one another. They struggled to share that spotlight both on and off the court. You had 4 guys, roughly the same age, same skill level, same background, same "star" status. Salary disputes. No body wanted to be the "Scottie Pippen". These okc teammates were actually competing against each other, rather than the other team as a whole. This team could have won 4 championships, if they just did things as a team
John & Alyssa Henson
@19:05 Eddy Curry lol. Free Championship Ring. His finest NBA moment.
Jordan Davis
The big 3 showed everybody where teamwork gets u
Bro, fr look at this OKC team, the Heat with Bosh, Bron & D.Wade playing insane basketball, for me where going to this finals as underdogs, but OKC didn't do shit...
reyniel palmaira
The time when James doesn't need to carry the team . 🙄
Eddie Ca.
This was when Westbrook wasn’t as good. Same with the beard and snake 🐍
When KD (Warriors) got his revenge back on LeBron (Cavs) at the 2017 Finals
gilbert malindog
@15:44 Referee : Don't forget to thank me -_-
Kimsan Chea
Westbrook he’s hella ugly and got a bad attitude!!
Trevor Crotts
if this thunder squad was still together they would be a real problem for the warriors
Gunk MasterFlex
shit this makes me happy to see lebron win his first championship,...... fastfoward 6 yrs later hes only won 2 more times. and has been slap around by the Almighty Warriors.
Brenden Chandler
OKC makes the finals and then proceeds make one of the worst decisions in sports history during the offseason by trading James Harden for jermey lamb and a pick lmao
suprina case
These mid-video commercials are out of control
Lazee Llama
anybody else forget that Harden was on OKC
Ray Ybanez
Westbrick and harden can't stop Dwade 14:32
I was SO happy for the Heat, I had a tear in my eye that night! Go Wade!
Ligaya Parado
