Ben Golliver and Michael Pina discuss the end of the NBA bubble, which saw the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Miami Heat in six games to claim their 17th championship. Ben offers a behind-the-scenes look at LeBron James's title celebration and then they debate where this title ranks among James's four rings. From there, Ben and Michael look back on the Finals and the overall bubble experience. What happened to the Heat in Game 6 and will they be back next year? What prevented this year's Lakers team from capturing the national imagination? How and why did the bubble humanize the superstars who participated? The show closes with a discussion of Ben's Washington Post essay on his complicated feelings leaving the bubble and returning home to California.
