NBA Finals 2013

Miami Heat beat San Antonio Spurs 95-88 in the deciding game of a dramatic series to retain the NBA title.

LeBron James played stunning, brilliant basketball to earn the NBA Finals MVP for the second straight year and Dwyane Wade, who played throughout the playoffs despite knee problems, saved his best for the final game of a grueling postseason. 

James finished with 37 points, 12 rebounds and four assists, going 12 of 23 from the field, 5 of 10 from three-point range and 8 of 8 from the free-throw line. Wade had 23 points, 10 rebounds and an assist and made 11 of his 21 attempts. 

LeBron James is only the third NBA player to win back-to-back regular season MVPs and NBA titles. (The other two: Michael Jordan and Bill Russell.) 

The following photo shows the moment that James nailed a jumper to make it 92-88 with 27.9 seconds left on the clock.

DJ Police awarded

"You are the 12th player,"

"We are teammates. Everyone, please listen to what we your teammates say,"

"I don't want to scold you on this happy day,"

"Policemen with a stern look are also delighted at Japan's qualifying for the World Cup,"

"Let's celebrate with the spirit of fair play,"

"If you behave in such a way, you could be issued a yellow card,"

These humorous words from a policeman nicknamed "DJ Police" helped greatly in guiding the crowd at a busy scramble intersection in Tokyo's Shibuya district and in preventing any injuries during the street revelry, after Japan became the 1st team to qualify for next year's World Cup.

He received an award and commendation for his effective handling of the large crowd.

To be honest, I can't understand why young guys were so excited at Shibuya crossing after such a dull game.

Honda's penalty was good, but I think it was overestimated.

Rather, policemen who handled young idiots should be overestimated.

Congratulations, DJ Police!! \(^o^)/

Japan 1st Team to Qualify for 2014 World Cup

Japan's engine Keisuke Honda made sure Japan became the 1st team to qualify for the 2014 World Cup by calmly converting a stoppage-time penalty to secure a 1-1 draw against Australia on Tuesday night at Saitama.

Japan needed at least a point to clinch a spot in next year's World Cup in Brazil from Group B in Asian qualifying.

Tommy Oar had given Australia a 1-0 lead in the 82nd minute, but a handball by Matthew McKay set up the penalty for Honda.

I think it was not a good game for Japan tonight, but I hope Samurai Blue will improve further to create a great sensation in Brazil next year.

Congratulations!! \(^o^)/
