Open Thread: The NBA Championship Game is Tonight at 9:00 PM ET

After a roller coaster ride where both teams traded blows and appeared to gain so much momentum but ended up losing the very next game, it finally comes to this. Game Seven of the NBA Finals, Tonight at 9:00 PM Eastern Time on ABC or This is Epic. This is BIG.

I won't lie.  That was a clutch play of clutch plays right there.

I picked Spurs in Seven. So I pick the Spurs to win. Still believe it will happen, but after Game 6, I don't know how. Should they win, the Spurs will have won five overall championships, all since 1999, and this will be a great final exclamation point for Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili who are past their primes and Tony Parker is near the end of his.

The Miami Heat is likely going to be favored to win this one considering how they came back after being down by multiple possessions with seconds left in regulation. Should they win, LeBron James will earn his second straight ring, and the Heat will win three championships overall since the 2005-2006 season.

More random SB Nation songs for tonight

Tonight is the biggest basketball night...EVER FOR THIS DECADE! We need to have an Encore Performance of Roundball Rock (and the live version is linked):

Second, we gotta play Kurtis Blow with "Basketball!" I'm not playing Bow Wow's version.

Lastly in the embedded videos, I'm playing "He Got Game" by Public Enemy!

MOST IMPORTANTLY, with the Tulsa Shock winning today, and also because this is Russell Westbrook's warm up tune since he plays in the same state as the Shock, you know what song's next for warmups!

And here are some other basketball songs that are great and for you to debate on:

1. "Space Jam" by Quad City DJ's

2. "This is How We Do It" by Montell Jordan

3. "Whoomp There It Is" by Tag Team

4. "Be Like Mike" from the Gatorade Commercials!
