Now that LeBron James and the Miami Heat have capped off the NBA season with a glorious title run, the spotlight turns to the next great stage for basketball, the London Olympics.

Miami's Big Three of James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh dominated Oklahoma City Thunder's talented trio of Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and James Harden in five games to claim the NBA crown on Friday.

All six will be meeting up again soon in Las Vegas among 18 finalists for the 12-man U.S. Olympic team that will defend the gold medal this summer in London.
