San Antonio may give more of a fight, but their chance was last year and I think they blew it. Being one year older doesn't do them any favors. The Heat should roll such an old squad.
Miami's got this, Pat Riley will finally have his threepeat.
Right. SA is better overall (Ginobili, Splitter, Leonard, Patty, etc are all playing better than they were last year), and Timmy/Parker are essentially playing the same. Miami got older, though not necessarily better. Last year's Spurs had to choke in order for Miami to win. Miami also had HC advantage, this year they don't.
So yeah, obviously Miami would beat SA "easy."
