Default Potential Finals story lines

Getting a little ahead of myself here but for entertainment let's say it's a Heat vs. Spurs Finals. Which story lines intrigue you?

1) The "Rematch". 2007 Lebron and a bunch of scrubs get swept by the Spurs. Now Lebron is back with a "real" team and supporting cast and he's out to get revenge on the Spurs.

2) "Last Kick at the Can". Is this the end of the Spurs? Does losing the Finals dismantle their core? Or do they have one last run in them to cool off the Heat and cement their dynasty? If Duncan wins, is this it for him, go out as a Champion? Does Pops follow, or Manu?

3) "History in the Making". Will nothing get in the way of LBJ as he goes for title number 2? Are we "witnessing" a true superstar in his prime and the peak of his powers?

4) "Xs and Os". What does Coach Spo have in store for the wily veteran Pops? Does the old man have any tricks left up his sleeve?

5) "Way of Wade". Which D Wade will show up in the Finals? Can he peel back the years and get those knees going and remind us of 2006? Is he arguably the biggest X-Factor disguised as a Superstar?

6) "Raining 3s". Which Ray Allen shows up? Is there less pressure on him this time around? Does he hang them up if he wins another title?

7) "GINOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOBLI!!!!". More Charles Barkley? Great for TV. Does he have a run left in him? Eurostepping to one last title?


That's a few of them I could think of right now. Feel free to add any for this one or the other potential Finals match ups. Keep it light and fun.

P.S. I wrote this using my HELLO voice....

I dislike the Heat but the Spurs being in the finals would be my least favorite match up.

If you dislike the Heat then why wouldnt you want the team that has the better chance of beating them in the Finals?

Before this series, I thought MEM would be the tougher matchup if they got past SAS, but I dont think MEM would be able to handle MIA's trapping, fronting defence, due to their lack of perimeter shooting and playmaking.

It would be pure bliss. I wouldn't worry about any particular storyline, but rather just let it all just wash over me. However it ended up would be pleasing, unless a bunch of players just play badly on both sides, and I just can't see that happening.

It would also make the two regular season games seem as though each team anticipated the final meetup, with each one having taken turns sitting out their stars. And not having seen the matchups will really build up anticipation.

Pacers lose by 1 point , not at home, in OT and they are already counted out?
