"DALLAS – Shaquille O'Neal promised it. Dwyane Wade did everything humanly possible to secure it. And Gary Payton, after 16 long seasons in pursuit of one, finally got it.

But the Miami Heat's first NBA championship undoubtedly meant more to one individual than anyone else – a person who once defined the franchise and not too long ago laid on an operating table wondering if he ever would play basketball again.

"It took a lot of patience and it took a lot of resiliency just to get to this point," Alonzo Mourning said. "So many people had doubts.… You never question the heart of a champion.""

This is a good thing.

Danny always insisted that the Pistons were lucky to beat the Heat last year.

He's still right, even dead. I can't stand it.
