The Heat probably will not win because:
1. Wade's skills and hops have diminished, his knees are not going to let him play the way he used to
2.) Bosh is not a guy you can count on for rebounding or points. 3 rebounds as a forward in the playoffs!!. Bosh was always over-rated. I'd take so many other power forwards over this guy.
3.) Chalmers is sometimes good and sometimes bad;
4.) The Heat bench is getting older. Their 3s are not consistent.
LBJ will not be in South Beach after 2014 unless they do some trades to bring better supporting cast for LeBron. They would need to do this soon. Riles knows this so expect some changes this offseason for sure.
Where else would he go? The best bet is he stays with the Heat.
LeBron has to think about catching Jordan and Kobe now. It's all about legacy at this point. He needs to find a team young enough and talented enough to help him complete his mission.
Lebron is a great player, even though I dont really care for him, you have to give credit where its due. I hope he never goes to Chicago. Id much rather see Derrick Rose win a Championship with the team the Bulls have developed over the past few years rather than fall into that "Super Team" category.
I'd also like to see Rose and the Bulls win it. Everybody loves a comeback story, the guy is humble and you have a true team concept with defense. If the Bulls are healthy next year, I pick them to win it all.
Finals update: Lebron is reverting back to who he was before 2012, a jump shooting, non-aggressive player. How many times has he driven down the lane? Are the Spurs defenders better than the Pacers or Bulls? I don't think so. Like Danny Green said, "it is Lebron stopping LeBron more than us".
And don't get me started on Bosh who we always thought he was (not a prolific scorer, rebounder or defender). The Heat look like they are wilting in the humidity. History shows that a team which gets to the finals 3 years in a row is their last year. I can see it happening with the Heat as well.
The Spurs to me are one and done. They are still old at key positions and got lucky when OKC's Westbrook suffered an injury.
MJ - 6- 0 in Finals, 6 Finals MVPs
Kobe - 5-2 in Finals, 1 Finals MVP
Lebron 1-2, soon 1-3? or 2-2, - 1 Finals MVP

OKC and Miami Heat are both 4-0 right now. Who do you want to be the champ this year?

Do you think the Miami Heat will get to the finals and win their rings this year?I'm a Cleveland fan, I am hoping not, at least not this year. Don't get me wrong, he's a great player and deserves it but he loses it can give Cleveland one year to cheer about. LOL

As we all know, MIami Heat won back to back titles this year, in an epic game 7 series clincher no less. However, was that series fixed? Did David Stern purposely rig the game to where Miami cheated their way into another title? I personally don't think so, but a friend of mine brought...

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...

I believe that if (when) Miami wins game 1 in Miami and get the psychological momentum that they will need to win game 2, Boston will be wore out game 3 and 4.

I am interested in seeing how people think these 3 great players match up. So rank Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, and Michael Jordan 1,2,3. If you think Jordan should not be included in this because he is not a current player, then just rank Kobe and Lebron, but I am kind of curious to see who thinks...
