The 2012 NBA Finals are tied at 1-1, as everyone migrates to Miami for game three on Sunday night.

Basketball fans couldn't have asked for much more, in watching the first two games of the series. LeBron v. Durant is the pinnacle of basketball match-ups, and the 'good vs. evil' dynamic makes for a wonderful storyline. Not to mention, the underlying narratives, as each team struggles to find a healthy balance of power between numero uno and numero dos.

Consider this an open thread to discuss the big game with fellow Sixers fans. But before you get into the chatter, I present you with some great Finals-centric reading material.
