To say they were the best defensive team since the 04 pistons is ludicrous. Numbers can only justify so little.
Bosh also missed 4 games in the conference finals, and Wade was just above average in that series.
Give some credit to the Celtics. They really played their @$$ off against Miami. They were leading the series at 3-2 before Lebron 's 45 points performance in a do or die game.
I think Brandon Bass had his best performance in his NBA Career with the 2012 Boston Celtics.
