In case you thought that the spectacle and bombast of the Miami Heat meant the troika of All-Stars were cold, heartless men, you were wrong. Following their Game 6 elimination at the hands of the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday, LeBron James and Chris Bosh broke down into tears on their walk to the locker room.
The Heat famously had tears in their locker room following a regular season loss to the Chicago Bulls; coach erik Spoelstra spilled that secret in order to illustrate that human hearts beat in the Heat's chest. It's annoying that this is something that has to be proven (and also that some will consider it an act of sissiness), but to quote every athlete ever: it is what it is.
Bosh remained composed in his post-game press conference, and handled most questions by complimenting the Mavericks in general, and Dirk Nowitzki specifically. He commended the effort and focus the Mavericks showed during the Finals.
