Yes, the Spurs are the greatest threat to the Heat, JUST LIKE LAST YEAR. Lakers are done. Are the Clippers really better than last year? Grizzlies still can't shoot. Warriors are exciting but their gains and losses in players even things out. Nuggets got worse. I wanted us to have rematch with the Thunder after refs stole game 6 in 2012. Rockets are dangerous because of James Harden, NOT because of Dwight Howard. They will play differently with Howard, not necessarily better. (Aaron Baynes won my allegiance against the Lakers in last year's playoffs. I saw Howard plow into him like he does everybody else, and the "Australian Oak" could not be moved!)
At the moment it is the Spurs & Thunder that are the biggest threats to Miami coming out of the West and definitely not the Lakers they are done. The departure of Dwight Howard and release of Metta World Peace, the team is in a sink hole. Spurs will be stronger and hungrier this year after a bad performance in Game 6 & 7, the Spurs will recognize the mistakes they made in the 2013 NBA Finals and move forward from that and win it all coming 2014 NBA Finals. Go Spurs, Go!!!!
