I'd like to know this as well.

Rondo, Pierce and KG for Boston..... Manu, Parker and TD for the Spurs.

Killer defense and beautiful offense being played by both teams in good stretches.

Wade yelled, "Why don't you go back to Portland!" to Coach Spoelstra.

No he did, I can read lips.

Boston's offence is very rarely beautiful, I still don't enjoy watching them play at all (hatred for KG likely a large factor). Watching the Spurs last night though, I don't see how you can not enjoy watching them play. The ball movement is something every other team should be watching on a loop all off season.

when the heat have all 3 guys healthy and running smoothly...its very enjoyable to watch. boston and indiana's offence is a struggle to watch at times.

but now that Bosh is out miami looks awful too. im just saying if all 3 dudes were healthy vs. spurs or okc...THAT IS AN EXCITING FINALS

indiana will get dumped by okc or sas. if i have to choose b/w the 2...i'd rather see a gritty boston team than a potential sweep with indiana.

Meh. I disagree. I could watch Rondo run the break all day. And KG working in the post is a thing of beauty.

Won't disagree about the Spurs having the best ball movement out there though. That is true.

I agree. I'd only enjoy watching them beat the Heat. Or if I was interested in watching some lockdown D.

You wouldn't expect a team in the bottom 5 in offensive efficiency to be beautiful. And it's not. The Celts waste a lot of possessions. Despite all the triple-doubles Rondo puts up, that team still is terribly inefficient.

Wow. Miami looks like shit again. Good thing Lebron can opt out of his contract soon.

funny that LeBron's supporting cast in Cleveland was better than this.

wow i cannot believe this. i went from being so excited about seeing MIA vs CHI in the east finals to not caring about a BOS/PHI vs IND matchup. injury bug screwed over what would have been an epic matchup.

i mean, i know most of you want to see miami lose. but i would rather see them lose at full strength to an elite team like OKC or SAS (or although not possible CHI).

IND beating MIA is a waste...

Normally I'd like to see a team lose the "right" way. Like you said, losing at full strength on the basis of the other team's strong play.

But, having said that, it would just be sooooooo fucking hillarious if the Cavaliers win a 'ship before Lebron. It's just too good of a story. It would be amazing if the Heat lose, the Cavs get another awesome pick this year, and a year or two from now the Cavs are an awesome team and Lebron is looking to opt out of his contract with the Heat.
