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.
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.
