Well, they should be the heavy favourites. They are still the champions and the majority considers them to have the best player, 2nd best shooting guard in the game, and the a top forward/center too.

Yea but you can't forget, Lebron individually demolished that Orlando team in that series. Though it's much more telling of the perimeter defenders the Magic implored back then (and always since Dwight's been there) and less on Dwight himself. Bron also had a much, much more reliable jumpshot that year.

But yea, not sure what the Heat's plan will be to guard the Lakers inside. Using Joel or Haslem makes them an easier team to defend. Not using them makes them a easier team to score on in the post.

I highly doubt Bron will be guarding Dwight for extended minutes, as he would be exerting more energy than Spo likes and will undoubtedly pick up early fouls. That means out of the starting lineup, Dwight's primary defender will be Bosh.

Yikes.

Like I've been saying all off-season, I think in a series: LA>Miami, OKC > LA, Miami > OKC. Comes down to who can avoid who en route to the Finals.

Artest guards Lebron as well as anyone, and Kobe always does a great job on Wade. I don't see an issue other then maybe fast break points. It'll be even easier for Kobe and Metta now that they have Dwight backing them up. Chalmers and Cole could cause some issues, but I don't see a way they alter the series enough to give Miami a win.

If Chalmers shoots the ball well from beyond the arc he could possibly change the momentum in a series.

The same can be said for many players on both teams though, so make of that what you will.

so even if you adjusted for kobe coming out of highschool ( 2 years earlier than these other guys )... that would mean all of them still would have been finished by their 15th or 16th seasons


kobe in his 17th is a top 5 player... best SG in the nba over a legendary guy in his prime DWYANE WADE




Are you comparing this just turned 34 year old Kobe to the older 34 year old FINALS MVP version Michael Jordan or the 35 more than half way to 36 years LEAGUE MVP and FINALS MVP version Michael Jordan.

Crickets.

Just asking.
