LeBron, Heat's loss in newsprint

You may have noticed our sports front didn't have a "Mavs win the title" headline because of our early Sunday deadline, but we did run one of my favorites from the Twitterverse in the Macomb Daily (which we produce on Sundays) "Big D, not Big 3."
I also liked:
  • "Dallas in Wonderland"
  • "The King is speechless"
  • "King without a ring"
Here are the fronts from the Miami Herald and the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

The Dallas Morning News also went the easy route, from what I saw on TV Sunday night. Also, the NY Post took the gloves off, as it tends to do, with "Beach Bums" over top a photo of LeBron and Dwyane Wade.

Also, the Miami Herald, which seems to be common place in Finals series, ran a Macy's ad for Heat championship gear.

My question is, Sunday's Game 6 couldn't have been a clincher for the Heat. So why was that ad even in their system? Sometimes those things happen when dealing with two different entities running the show.
Welp, barring a "Decision Part II," that could be the last LeBron headline fun for the summer.
