2012: Dwight is traded to the Lakers and bolts at the end of the season. 2015: The Heat....

2013: Kobe blows his Achilles. 2016: LeBron blows his....

I'm not seeing the connection you're trying to draw up...

I've thought of some of that before, there certainly are some parallels, but I don't think we can use the Lakers as the measuring stick for the Heat. The Heat are so much more stacked than the Lakers ever were. The Lakers are also in one of the most historically competitive western conferences of all time while the Heat are playing in one of the most historically weak eastern conferences of all time. Also the Lakers were swept early in the Playoffs by the eventual champs, Brooklyn isn't going to win a championship this season.

I don't have as much faith in Indiana as everyone else seems to. They're still young, and IMO putting too much importance in winning all these regular season games to prove how good they are, and I think it could cost them in the end. Not that I expert them to just lose games on purpose, but IMO Miami and a team like the Spurs know how to pace themselves, the Spurs know how to do it while STILL winning all these games. I hope I'm wrong, but I see guys like George and Stephenson still not being ready to close like Durant and Westbrook haven't and LeBron and the Heat outdoing them in the end one more time.



Weezy wrote:I thought about that as well, Indiana wants to show they are a great team with all these wins, but yes I think they feel they need HCA, Miami might not. I also do not trust George or anyone Indy has to close a series against the Heat, as I haven't seen it happen yet. LeBron has shown he can be mediocre in a series and then still close, Wade has shown he can, hell even Bosh has proven he can show up in a big game. Until I actually see it happen, I'm not going to believe they can beat Miami.


Bump. I know it's one game, but really it's not, because Indiana is 12-14 in it's last 26 games now. My fears and concerns about them are coming true, I do not see the "it" factor in them. The way I see it only the Thunder or Spurs have a shot to take down Miami. That, or injury, or by some miracle, the Brooklyn "Celtics". Sure Indiana still can take them out, maybe if Miami is fatigued by then, but they have to get to them first, not get taken out by freaking Atlanta.

I don't see how the conference differences matter if you win the title..... You've beaten the best of the tougher division. That seems to show that it's only meaningful in regular season stats/records.

Looking back at that post, I don't see it either. :man11:
