Default NBA FINALS: (1)MIA HEAT vs (2)SA SPURS

STARTERS:

SAS

Tony Parker
Danny Green
Kawhi Leonard
Tim Duncan
Tiago Splitter


MIA

Mario Chalmers
Dwyane Wade
Lebron James
Udonis Haslem
Chris Bosh

KEY ROTATION PLAYERS:

SAS

Gary Neal
Manu Ginobili
Boris Diaw
Matt Bonner

MIA

Norris Cole
Ray Allen
Shane Battier
Chris Anderson

Key Matchups:

This series will come down to the adjustments made on San Antonios pick and roll game. If MIA chooses to trap, it's not going to work because the Spurs bigs pass so well, and it'll create too many situations of 4 on 3 for SAS. But if MIA puts Lebron on Parker, SAS may have a hard time creating good shots. Duncan and Splitter also have to play big on the boards and inside obviously. On the Miami side of things, if they utilize Bosh more on screen roll, and postup DWade vs Green, it's going to be very difficult for SAS to stop them, besides having to deal with LBJ. If any other coach was coaching SAS' roster, I'd say MIA in 5, but because Pop is such a genius, it's a really tough series to call.

PREDICTION:

MIA in 6. I forsee TP struggling against the pressure and the Spurs not having enough offence when he's not going. Though I really hope I'm wrong. Keep the Duncan Finals streak alive!

Some potential big news in the future:
Quote:
On notice: With a 3rd technical in Finals, LeBron would be suspended from next game. With any flagrant, Birdman suspended from next game.
Just to be clear, if Lebron gets 3 techs in the Finals he'll be suspended.

Love the 2-3-2 format.

Heat disappoint everybody and win the title in 4.

I think the Spurs will respond well to Miami's aggressive defense. Indiana occasionally exposed it by hitting Hibbert rolling to the rim. Well, the Spurs also have bigs with touch, but their guards are way more poised than Indy, and they have shooters to kick to when the defense collapses on those rollers. The Spurs poise, ball movement and shooting bodes well for dealing with Miami when they hedge high or double in the post.

But how does SA stop Lebron? What if Leonard gets in foul trouble? They don't really have a secondary wing defender big enough or quick enough to match up with Lebron.

Sentimental pick, Spurs in 6.

I think Miami is going to be in rhythm, and feeling a little unleashed from Vogel's defense. If Bosh can resume his play from before the Indy series it's going to be tough for the Spurs, particularly early on with rust being a problem.

Surprised at all the people picking the Heat in here. I am picking the Spurs in 6, and that is me doing my best to be objective.

I wish Mia had beaten Dallas so that this would be their 3-peat.
