The Miami Heat continue to be the favorites to win the NBA championship this year. With the playoffs less then 2 weeks away, do you believe any other team can beat Miami?
I sure hope so.
Bulls and Oklahoma City can beat them, especially if they get home court.
I'm sure we are going to get a fight from any team but will come out on top at the end.........GO HEAT!!!!.............
The MIAMI HEAT are the clear-cut favorites to win the NBA Championship this season, but that could work against them. If they don't win this season The Big 3 will be put under even more scrutiny. All of this pressure will lead to poor basketball possibly. I still think they have the best chance of winning, but I think it is a coin toss between them and Chicago.
I would like to see the Bulls win, but I am not confident. We needed another guy who could put up points and we got Rip. He is playing well now, but Rose is not ready. It is once again up to our defense and bench. That is what will win Chicago a championship. New York travels to Miami and they do have a shot. Miami is tough though. Their only weakness is the bench. If New York can get to the lane and get some fouls, they will have a better shot.
San Antonio is coming in hot, as well as the Grizzlies. I feel that OKC is backing in. If you get hot at the right time, we have seen teams go far in the past. If I had to pick a favorite, it would have to be the Spurs. They have the momentum right now.
A title looked imminent last season ( and it was!) nobody in their right mind could even imagine any scenario where another team can beat them four times in any seven game series and last season Miami Heat was vulnerable in the playoffs because of the injury to Chris Bosh and they still won the title, as they steam rolled the Oklahoma City Thunder in the NBA Finals. This season I just can not see any glaring weakness at all and they do not seem to be suffering from the Championship Hangover.

They say its the Lakers Year for the West and the Celtics for the East. I am praying that its the Mavericks but they way it looks know the Celtics have to be the Favorite. In my Heart I feel the Mavericks are going to get it together and take it all. What do you Think.

What is your take on the Cavs-Celtics Series?What Are Your Predictions?

They have become dominant over the last month. After starting 9-8, they have won 16 of 17 games. Does the Heat stand with the elite of the league? Or, is it bacause most the teams they played, were .500 or below? Their flow, as a team, is better now but, that's a lot of ego's.

I wrote a Hub about the two teams that can challenge the Miami Heat in the East a while back. Before the 27-game winning streak, the Miami Heat lost to the Indiana Pacers and the streak ended against the Chicago Bulls. Does anyone think different?

The first round of the playoffs this season is not looking good for any of the road teams at alll. Injuries have played a huge part on the no-drama!
