They're like the Spurs. The Spurs have the best record in the L come playoff time every year it seems. Yet nobody actually favors them over the Thunder. The Heat are beating up on today's weak league by getting a lot of fastbreaks and Lebron never has to take any shots outside of the paint and it all looks so easy... but guess what... a 7 game series with the Pacers is not going to be that easy. This is not a team that has consistently responded well to challenges. They did often enough last year to get the title, beating an old and battered Celtics team barely in 7 games, and an inexperienced Thunder team whose core was all under 24. (And that series could have gone a lot differently too if not for a fairly egregious no-call.) The Heat can lose to anyone good.
I think they'll just pull out another title, but it won't be a breeze. No way.
Nice job coming off as a biased little b.itch. You do know the Thunder played in the WCF the season before, right? And the Heat were missing Bosh for most of the Celtics series. Not to mention Wade had knee injury the whole playoffs. And using the refs to defend OKC is a joke. Durant gets the most love from the refs out of any superstar in the league
