Tuesday, I went out to eat with a lot of old friends from high school to watch the game, and we had so much fun witnessing the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder go back and forth over the course of the game.

LeBron James had a pretty big game as his counterparts Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh struggled a tad.

With that said, like I told a lot of people, Kevin Durant was going to bring it, and Game 1 showed that.

LeBron can be inconsistent in the fourth quarter if he wants too, Bosh can shoot his threes and stay out of the paint and Wade can stay wrapped in his new found ego, Kevin Durant and his crew aren’t going anywhere, and they want the crown.

Miami Heat and the Oklahoma City Thunder are both fast-break teams, and the Thunder showed up and matched them pound-for-pound in their very own specialty.

The Miami Heat got going early in the beginning cracking the Thunder's zone, but once the Thunder started knocking down their routine shots in the third quarter, it was all but over for the Heat.

Then the fourth quarter came and Durant did what LeBron's naysayers have been begging him to do consistently: take over when it matters. Durant scored 17 points while LeBron struggled down the stretch.

Game 2 is Thursday and the young Thunder team is riding high and looking for blood.

LeBron must continue to play well through all four quarters, since Wade forgot that he needs to perform.

In the meantime, Kevin Durant is just three games away from putting LeBron through even more summer pain. While it will be unnecessary, it’s up to LeBron, Wade, Bosh and the Heat.

Their legacy, not mine.
