so who do you want to see in the NBA Finals matchup now?
I would love to see Dallas/Miami. the 06 rematch obviously is already entertaining but i would love to see how Miami guards the worst nigthmare matchup in the league right now, Dirk Nowitzki. I would love to see Lebron try to guard Dirk. I would love to see Joel try to guard Dirk as well. Bosh not so much. im not sure who wins that battle but a 7 game series surrounding that key matchup would be golden.
Dallas is the best executing team in the playoffs right now. they move the ball unselfishly and with great precision. Miami is arguably the best perimeter defending team (maybe Memphis has a better case). Miami rotations on defense when they want to do it is suffocating.
I would love to see how Miami's rotations on defense are matched up with Dallas' ball movement. Obviously best offense beats out best defense every time so when Dallas is making those 3s, theyre obviously the hardest team to beat.
so who are your the best finals matchup with the teams left this year?
LeBron would shit all over Dirk, offensively and defensively.
I want to see Miami/OKC unless Westbrick remains in chuck mode. If that's the case, Boston/Dallas. KG vs Dirk would be a nice throwback match-up to see. Be interesting to see what the Celtics defense does to disrupt Dallas' superior execution/ball movement.
Dallas vs. Miami is looking like the most likely scenario, atm. Dallas beat em both times in the regular season, so who knows how that would play out. I would expect a great series, and a Dallas Mavericks team that is out for blood. They haven't lost to the Miami Heat since the 2006 Finals.
Wade would make it 8 in a row against the Mavericks in the finals. It wouldn't even be fun to watch...
I don't see who could effectively guard Wade on that Mavs team. However, I think that the major concern for the Heat are the Celtics. IMHO, if they beat them, there's no one that will be able to stop this team, maybe in years to come too. Count the confidence they'll get too. Still that's a big IF. Gotta beat em tonight
Who knows. i like the heat (who doesn't) but they've yet to play a close game in the playoffs and do well (they had only 1 against philly and cracked) and the first time the Celtics pushed back , they completely crumbled with Bosh admitting he cracked, which is bizarre. And with OKC/Memphis, who knows.
