GM's believe Heat win again, and that James is crowned MVP again

Posted by shawn cassidy on October 23, 2013 at 5:30 AM



Why even watch? The NBA, and their owners believe the Heat will win another championship, and that the chosen one will tie Jordan, and Bill Russell for 5 MVP awards. I'll tell you this, because I have before, but the last team to reach four NBA Finals in a row was the Boston Celtics in the 80's, and they only grabbed two NBA championships in that span from 83-84. and 86-87. I think face better teams overall this year, or at least improved teams on paper, and the Heat keep aging outside of James, and Bosh, that's right Wade is older now, and with those bad knee's. I think it's aged him that much more.

NBA general managers are playing it safe with predictions this season.

In a poll of all 30 GMs conducted by NBA.com, the Miami Heat were chosen to win their third consecutive title, and LeBron James was selected to capture his second straight MVP.

James would join Michael Jordan and Bill Russell with five MVPs. Only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (six) has more.

 

The GMs also selected the Heat to win the title last season. This year, the Indiana Pacers and San Antonio Spurs tied for second place in voting for most likely team to win it all.


I think this year is all Pacers, and that's if they stay healthy. Sorry Nets, Bulls, Spurs, and Thunder. The Pacers are built to win now, and they added talent, and they added Granger, who may comeback strong, or it could be a disaster. I think he'll adapt to his new role with the Pacers. The Heat will not win it again, and that's not from hate, that's from history. It's been done before of course, but reaching a Finals for a 4th year in a row is daunting, even for the king.

I agree. This is Indiana's time. Their bench was drastically improved. Their top scorer, Danny Granger is coming back and lord knows they REALLY needed his scoring prowess last playoffs. And Hibbert and George are only going to get better. I just don't see how Miami can stop this team. Too big and powerful and HUNGRY at this point.
