    Default Are the heat the worst finals team ever?

    no super stars or stars. Bunch of rookies. Trying to think of a worse but i cant. There were a couple weak ones around the 2000's. Pacers, nets and knicks maybe.

    Destroyed the Bucks with the MVP/DPOY and beat the Celtics who are loaded with talent.
    People that think that superstars are the end all, be all are morons.
    The only team that has played better than them in the bubble are the Lakers.
    It’s one game, chill tf out.

    The Nets had Kidd and were clearly worse than Miami.

    Weird that a lot of kids think the 56 win Pacers were a bad team. They were the best shooting team that year with arguably the best offense and decent defense. They took 2 games off peak Shaq and would have extended it to 7 games if not for Kobe's clutch heroics in the middle of the series. Miller averaged 24 for the series and Rose 23, they actually outscored the Lakers in that six game series in total points powered by that 33 point win which was some sort of record at the time.

    Butler & Bam aren't even stars now

    The '07 Cavs with LeBron having the worst playoff run of his career will always be my top choice for this category. The '01 Sixers were worse too, needing to eek out two 7 game series just to make it through a weak conference

    There's absolutely nothing clear about that at all. Nets made two Finals and were always higher seeded than 5th.

    He’s not top 15 and even if he was that team still had a losing record and clearly wasn’t particularly impressive.

    Aside from having more talent top to bottom.

    Miami's played both top 5 offense and defense this postseason. Jersey was never on that level.

    Greek and celtics aren't ready yet so beating them dosnt mean much. Just look at this heat team. They have 3 small 90's type white dudes who cant defend for shit and not a star to speak of. They make mj's worse finals opponent look like an atg team

    Miami beating Milwaukee was kind of a big deal.

    Milwaukee had the best record and a player you claimed was the best in the game.
