cHeat looking unbeatable right now.

No one is beating Miami.

San Antonio has a slight chance if they meet in the finals

Damn shame that Miami has a shot to break the 33 games in a row record of the Lakers. They get to play in a watered down league and a pathetic Eastern conference and yet if they tie or break that record they'll be lauded as better than than that team with some legends, ugh.

I have to give credit to the Heat, they know their roles well and play like a team with excellent chemistry. They are heads and shoulders ahead of any other team right now, and barring some freak injury, they will repeat as champions.

I don't think they will beat the Lakers record, but they are the first team to have a legitimate shot at doing so.

Even when the Heat were down by 12+ you just knew they were going to come back. I hate to say it, but that team is really damn scary.

So what are you saying? Lebron put up 37 points and 12 assist against a KG/Rondo less Celtic team. He shot 29 times too. OMG. That is nearly twice as much as Wade's 15 shots and nearly 3 times as much as Chalmers and Bosh's 10 shots. Why isn't he a ballhog? I mean you called Kobe a ballhog. You jocked the other players to prove Kobe wasnt an MVP. Hmmm.... Maybe your agenda is starting to show a little too clearly here.

Dude does the same thing you killed Kobe for yet here you are waxing poetic his accomplishments. Weird Lakers fan. <----------- that is comical right there.

No you dont.

So you are saying Lebron deserves with another 30 point scorer and a 20 point scorer on his team?

Simpleness is comical. False fanhood is comical.

1) LeBron is on a 23 game win streak? Word I thought he played on the Heat.
2) Weezy's post is 100% truth. There are no contenders in this league right now and the east does suck. Problem??

If this league is watered down - how come we've never done it?

And anyone could argue the league was not as tough as it was when our Lakers did it.

Either way, its ridiculously hard to win that many games in the NBA in a row, in any year. And theres no guarantee they win another 11 straight.

1.Because we play in the West, which is always a lot harder, and because THIS season and last when the league has really become watered down, we have been mediocre to crap. I have never seen an NBA season with teams full of so many players I've never even heard of. The league is in a period of transition, a lot of the stars that have been for a long time are winding down, retiring, not ruling the league anymore, new stars are emerging, and a lot of unknowns are just that, unknowns. When the league was really, really good back in 2000 our Lakers had winnings streaks of 19 and 16 games in the same season, that was damn impressive.

2.You could argue that, but I don't think I'd agree. 17 teams in the league then, and to me, almost half the teams means the talent isn't watered down, it means you have to be even better to make a roster.

3.You're right, it is hard to win this many games in a row no matter how bad the league is, the Heat deserve credit for that, for not tripping up against a crap team or something. That said, they are a stacked team that won it all last year and actually improved their roster over the summer playing against some of the worst teams I've ever seen, a lot of them have guys that don't belong out of the D-League. I hope you're right that there is no guarantee they win another 11 straight, I don't want to see it happen, I want Laker records to stay Laker records, hopefully they trip up in one game. The record I care about more though is the 15-1 playoff run we had in '01, as long as nobody breaks that I can deal with the 33 game win streak being broken.

A majority of the top teams in the East are missing their major players... Rose with Chicago. Knicks with Anthony plus their front line. Indiana has Granger not being all the way back. Their opponent in the ECF last year is missing Rondo...plus Garnett did not suit up last night. Brooklyn is trying to get their legs together. Atlanta isn't a threat.

Like I said, the East is terrible, for proof of that just look at our record against their best teams. Almost all playoff teams in the West have owned us (GS being the exception), where we have beaten teams 2-8 in the East playoff picture at least one time each. That doesn't prove my point, but I think it does add to the case.

Agreed. Thought I'd point out the fact that the East is terrible IMO only from a standpoint where the teams I mentioned are missing key players in their line-up not from a talent perspective compared to the West. If those players I mentioned were healthy with their respective teams, it would be much more competitive. Miami wouldn't have such an open highway in front of them and their record would be as good as it is currently. Good stat to look up as you suggested.

There's no doubt that the East is weaker than the West this season, so I completely understand your point.

However, I do want to point out that Miami has a record of 23-5 against the Western Conference, which is a better win percentage than any team in the West against their own conference. For comparison, San Antonio is 23-4 against the East, meaning the Heat are basically winning as well against Western teams as the Spurs fare against Eastern teams.

IMO while it would have been more unlikely for Miami to have won 23 in a row in the Western Conference, it still would have been possible due to how well they play Western teams.

Point taken, like I said they are a great team, and they've had some great fortune to have no real injuries. Their record against the West impressive, I just think if they were IN the West and had to play those teams more they would have lost one game by now though, at least one stinkin game. :mhihi:

I hope they lose one more game before they hit 33, trust me I really do. Sadly though, they just might be good enough and fortunate enough to pull it off :man5:

Eastern Conf has been way weaker than the West for 15 seasons ... nothing new here ...

The biggest proof the East sucks ? No team from the East ( outside Heat) has a positive record against teams at and above 0.50.

West ? The 1st 5 seeds have positive records and Rockets are 19-19
