Default Let's be real: It's going to be Miami vs OKC in the Finals

Nothing really to talk about, these will clearly be the 2 best teams in their conferences. Miami has no questions and Perkins is much healthier and Ibaka, Harden, Durant, Maynor, Westbrook are all a year closer to their primes.

Just like Miami was undoubtedly better than Dallas and were gonna 'handle them' in the Finals.

Didnt Ibaka sign a contract to play in Spain? or can he opt out of his contract now that the NBA is back

Miami has no chance to beat OKC. OKC has a better front and backcourt not to mention much more depth

Rudy Gay being healthy will make it a lot more interesting.

A team without their best player and who had absolutely no business beating the Spurs took you to 7 games. Who says they won't make it all the way this year? And remember, Rudy Gay is going to be healthy too.

Except Lebron and Wade will lock down Durant and Westbrook.. taking away 90% of OKC's offense. And Westbrook and Durant have zero chance of locking Lebron and Wade down. The only way OKC wins is if Lebron chokes again[which is unlikely imo].

Durant outplayed LeBron last year, and hell they've had virtually the same numbers over the past 3 years when matched head to head sans assists. This was a 20/21/22 year old Durant vs prime LeBron.

Yep LeBron just shuts down Durant

Durant averaged 31/9/4 on 61 TS% vs LeBron last year
LeBron averaged 21/6/8 on 51 TS% vs Durant last year

You won't make the Finals when your starting PF and C barely average 10 ppg combined.


You were lucky to make the WCF. The Spurs would've swept your fragile ass.

Wait and see my friend. Durant got shut down by Shawn Marion and the perimeter defense of Dallas last year, which while very good, is nowhere near Miami's level of D.

The playoffs are an entirely different animal..regular season head to heads wont mean much come Finals time.
