Default Bulls, Knicks, Heat, Pacers are the 4 Eastern Conference Finalists

It's the 1990's all over again.

Finally a worthwhile thread by the OP.

I'd say they're pretty close if they win this year as well.

We're talking about a team that won 6 titles in 8 seasons.


Two titles in a lockout season and one deprived of major superstars lost to injury equals close?

isn't winning in a lockout season more difficult? all the coaches said last year that it is more difficult. the only people who say otherwise are heat/spurs haters. as much as you might not like it, injuries are part of the game and miami is good enough that they could rest one of their big players like wade because they went on a 27 win streak and locked #1 seed. Wade would be injured if he had to play more games.

Miami also played without bosh in last year's playoffs for a lot of games. wade was injured too and performed worse than he normally used to in a lot of games.

If anything it showed that miami was the best team at adapting and playing more games in shorter time. It is not their fault your team couldn't adapt.

I was thinking more in terms of dominance but yeah they do have a long way to match them in titles. Oh, and please spare me the nonsense about the lockout season.

No, theyre not. The only other teams that come close are the 96-97 bulls that went 69-13 and the old Lakers that went 69-13 as well.

Other than the winning streak, this year's Miami team hasn't done enough to be considered to make it to the all time list.

Which is funny because several people have told me they are one of the most stacked teams in the history of the league.

Stacked with all stars, yes. There's a reason why so many people frown upon the collusion.

I'm talking about SuperSTARS that are hurt and won't come back. You can't always adapt to that. We're talking about guys like Rondo, Kobe, Rose, Westbrook who ARE NOT coming back. Not guys like Wade and Bosh who were hobbled but one that the team knew was coming back.

It's easy to look retrospectively and say the Heat are not close to the 90's Bulls, but assuming they win a title this year they will be viewed much the same as the Bulls were viewed during either of the 3-peat runs.
