those people taking and hate miami is the same people who said last season Miami heat will not make "LOOSER!
how many times they predict about miami will not reach the championship?i believe Miami heat will make it!
If the Bulls remain healthy, and are healthy coming into the playoffs, I think the Bulls will represent the East. The Bulls are the Miami bullies. They ended Miami's huge win streak last season, and even managed to pull out one playoff victory IN MIAMI, while having only like 8 players healthy. If they can get a healthy Deng, a healthy Rose (who apparently improved his jumpshot during his year off), Noah and Boozer for rebounding (something Miami is bad at), an up and coming Jimmy Butler, Kirk Heinrich (who's been with Chicago before and has chemistry), that team looks dangerous. Even more so than in 2011. If not them, then the Pacers. The Pacers will get Danny Granger back, a guy capable of playing solid D on lebron, and has a history of getting into his head. One of these teams will knock out Miami in the East, and face..........well.......the spurs in the Finals!
@bernard samonte No offense, but just because someone doesnt pick Heat to win, doesnt mean they are "haters".
@bernard samonte Actually I think most have picked Heat over last couple years
@SpursAllDay11 We are trying to desensitize you to it..ha
@gymbear Nets could be really scary. I think much depends on Lopez and his health
@JeffProjectSpurs I honestly have the spurs. When the Finals started, I WANTED the Spurs to win (badly), but my mind has Heat in 7. I know, I know, bad fan right here. But some stupid voice in my head kept saying Heat will pull off a miracle, and they did. Trust me, I was just as devastated as the next spurs fan. Game 6 will haunt the Spurs, still does. Kawhi Leonard missing one of his free throws that could've sealed the game? Manu turning the ball over eight RIDICULOUS times? Tim Duncan dropping 25 in the first half and looked like he was on his way to 40 that night, and ended scoring like five points in the 2nd half? Although, you can probably blame Pop for Duncan getting less touches in the 2nd half of game 6. But in Game 7 where Timmy missed that gimme over Battier will not leave Tim, that was just brutal for him. As you can see, a few people on our team want to redeem themselves if given the chance to go back to that stage. I'd see the Spurs (if they meet Miami again) not only playing to win the trophy, but to do their best in making up for last year's mistake. The memory of coming so close, then losing it and dwelling in utter DESPAIR, will, to me, be added fuel to the fire.
@ajd21 Pacers also added Scola and I expect George to be a beast. And agree that Bulls could be in play as well as long as Rose is Rose again.
