    Let's be honest, we all know Miami is going to beat Indiana.  The only question is when will they beat them?  Nothing against the Pacers, but they lack the offensive explosiveness to keep up with the Heat, as I say that series will be over in six to seven games if you ask me.

    However, I want to make a prediction right now.  It will be a Heat and Spurs match up this year in the finals, but the spurs will sweep the heat.  don't get me wrong, all the games will be close, but i predict a sweep.  why a sweep?

    Because for starters, Bosh is overrated, and always has been.  period.  the spurs have Splitter and Duncan who can easily shut him down, and Bosh isn't a great rebounder, so he'll be a non factor. 

    Wade is playing hurt, and if the pacers drag out the conference finals series as long as i think it will go, then chances are that wade will struggle in the finals to keep up.  he's not the same player we was back when he won the title with shaq. 

    therefore, it'll all rest on LeBron James shoulders.  Granted, you all can argue saying the spurs have nobody that can stop lebron.  fair point.  who can stop lebron?  however, it's a well known fact that miami struggles against teams with great point guards, which the spurs have with tony parker.  plus miami doesn't have the bigs inside to stop guys like splitter and duncan scoring in the post.  therefore, i predict miami will be swept in this year's finals.  you all can bash me all you want, but you heard it here first.

      Spurs and Pacers are a better match. If the Heat are the ones that end up against the Spurs, I can see them having trouble in the paint. Will it be enough to beat the Heat? I don't know yet.

    My Bulls are no longer in contention, so it doesn't really matter to me whether its the Pacers or the Spurs, as long as one of them beats the Heat!! I can't stand the Heat!!

      Me neither; which is why I'll be laughing when the spurs sweep them this year in the finals. lol

    This is only true if David Stern and his refs allow the two teams to play basketball instead of allowing the Heat to flop when they are barely touched or get foul calls again when they are barely touched.

    I can  not wait until David Stern is no longer the commish, then we will get a chance to see someone else get a chance to win.

    Duncan is sometimes playing dirty.

    The Heat are too young and too athletic for the Spurs to handle.  It will be a tough series but San Antonio doesn't have the legs to keep up beyond six games.  If it's the Pacers though, the Spurs beat them in five or six.

      That's what most people have thought, and yet the Spurs have already beaten younger and faster teams in the Warriors and Memphis. More inexperienced? Sure, but I still wouldn't put it past them to beat the Heat.

    i disagree. I still think the Heat will win and you are not giving Bosh enough credit. He fits perfectly for what Lebron does best.  and whoops... looks like Bosh just got hurt pretty bad in the Pacers series. well. that changes things....

    The Heat = The Cheat.  I am glad Barkley made that comment after the Game 2 halftime I believe.  He said " I know David Stern wants The Heat to win, but you have to let those boys play."  What happened next?  3rd Quarter we saw real basketball again.  George Vs. Lebron.  Wade elbows Stevensen and didn't even receive a foul?  Then they say the next day oh well since there was no foul we can't suspend him now.  Bull shit.  Anyone who does not think that there is a lot of calls going in the Heat's direction is either an idiot or a Heat fan.  All the commentators say it.  All the analysts say it.  The officiating is disastrous.  It's all blatant attempts by Stern to push the game into one direction.  Look at all the times the Heat flop...no fines?  Really?  They flop right in front of them!  24 second violation?  THE BALL HIT THE RIM TWICE RIGHT IN FRONT OF A REF.  After that blatant call the jig was up last night and we finally see a guy who is called the #1 defender in the league finally get fouled out.  I don't think any defender is so good he never fouls anyone.   Point is anyone who knows basketball knows when all these calls/non calls go against your team you get run down mentally.  You can end up losing a game mentally before you do physically.  I hope some of you stop bullshitting now and at least agree with some of this.  If not go on youtube and type in any variation of the words "Miami Heat" and "cheat"

    Last year they had problems. Parker & Duncan were hurt and they had 2 young inexperienced players. Green and Leonard.

    They certainly can win this year because:
    Parker is about 95%
    Duncan got something in the offseason to make him youthful
    Leonard and Green and much better defenders than last year.

    If Parker gets hurt all bets are off though.
