Miami losing in the 2nd round or ECF would be more shocking than anything else.

Miami losing wouldn´t be that shocking. Tbh I think OKC is a perfect match-up for them. Lot of isolation plays and no big threats inside. I´m not buying the huge heat superiority to WC teams. I think the Spurs would have beaten them last year (by passing them to death like Dallas) and they could do it this year. I´d also think Memphis´s twin towers and defensive duo of Prince/Allen would give them hell as well as the homecourt advantage, depth, passing and overall athletism of the Nuggets. The Thunder and Clippers seem to be the best WC match-ups for the Heat.

Miami losing in the Finals...for the next 4 years would be shocking. Although missing the playoffs with 4 Hall of Famers is pretty embarrassing.

Actually OKC don't seem to matchup that well with Miami...hense why they have lost to them 6 straight times.

It wasn't a lock for Miami to win another ring this year...but it was pretty much a lock for the Lakers to make the playoffs.

I don't there is a person alive who thought in the preseason that the Lakers would not make the playoffs.

This thread is late. Asking it now just doesn't make sense with the heat rolling and the lakers under .500 this late in the season. As of now the heat not making the finals would be more shocking to me.

OKC is a horrible match up for the heat with all that iso crap they run feeding right into the heats best strengths defensively. A healthy spurs and clippers would give them more trouble I think.

we all know how the lakers stink, so they not making the playoffs would not be a shocker. I would be more shocked if the heat lost.

The Super talented Lakers with that huge payroll miss the playoffs would be WAY MORE SHOCKING. The Heat can be beaten by a couple of teams in the league. This isn't even close.
