The Thunder will be 2013 champs. Bookmark this. The Heat will choke in the Finals ala 2011. Durant FMVP.

Anything can happen. The heat only need one of the big three to come down with an injury then 4 or 5 other teams have a chance.

I do kind of feel this way, and it has part of me hoping they lose. The Heat's combination of talent at the top of the roster is almost unprecedented.

In 2011, Wade was widely considered a top 3 player. So two of the world's top three players decided to join forces, and they added a top 15 player for good measure. Then they used that talent mass as a magnet to attract a championship cast, with many of the players playing for discounts in order to chase rings.

It kind of doesn't seem right, actually.

The only team in the league that can cause them problems are the Indiana Pacers. Other than the Pacers, I don't think there's another team that can stop them.
