FINALS The annual return of NBA FACT or FICTION

A few of us played this on ”the old board" and I brought it here last year. With no news recently and being in the dog days of summer, I reintroduce NBA FACT or FICTION.

Here's how it work:

The first poster (in this case me) makes a statement regarding anything to do with the NBA For instance : FACT or FICTION - Michael Jordan was the best player ever.
The second person would answer fact or fiction (in this case a FACT) and now the important part … make sure to make another statement so that the thread continues!

(Just like last year, there is a Raptors FACT or FICTION, and an other sports FACT or FICTION)

So here goes:

FACT or FICTION -the 2013-2014 Miami Heat repeat as NBA champions.

Fiction. Even if he stays healthy, it takes time to get back to form after missing all year. Maybe in 2014-15.

Fact or fiction: Derrick Favors will have a better season than Al Jefferson.

By the numbers, fiction, by the impact, fact. Jefferson is going be stat padding bigtime this year to the effect of 20+ 10+, but Favors 14+10+2 will have more impact on winning because of his defensive ability.

The Indiana Pacers are the biggest threat to the Miami Heat?
