Young up and coming team that can shoot the lights out from 3, and punish you inside with Nene and Gortat! Wiz are the team of the future, we are truly witnessing a changing of the guard in the NBA.

Have you watched any western conference playoff games? The playoffs are totally different from the regular season. The wiz might be the future, but right now they are an untested, inexperienced team that could barely stay above .500 for most of the year. In the east. They would fold under the pressure against any western conference team given the talent and experience that even the 7th and 8th seeds have.

Not comparing them to the West but don't you think it is impressive that they went into a place like Chicago and won 3 straight. The Bulls were heavy favorites if I remember correctly yet the Wiz dispatched them quickly.

Honestly just seems like people can't appreciate Eastern Conference style basketball. The Wiz/Bulls series was actually more competitive than it looked by results.

They were done after the All Star break. Their life support is about to be unplugged soon.

This. Any team that can win 3 straight playoff games in Chicago is not to be taken lightly. I think they would give Miami a very good fight. I believe the Wiz were a top 5 three point shooting team this year, and the Heat happen to suck at defending the 3 so anything could happen.

But they always seem to come to life when they play the Heat. The Pacers can't be counted out until they are actually eliminated.

Bulls choked against the Wizards. Nene owned Joakim Noah the reigning defensive player of the year in the first round of the playoffs.

Bulls didn't choke

At most they seemed like they were runned down. Gortat getting every loose ball is probably evidence of that.

1987 Lakers (Regarded as one of the greatest teams of all time) road to the finals:

Denver 37-45: -1.14 SRS
Golden State 42-40: -2.53 SRS
Seattle 39-43: 0.08 SRS

2014 Miami Heat theoretical path to the finals:

Charlotte 43-39: -0.89 SRS
Toronto 48-34: 2.55 SRS
Washington 44-38: 0.48 SRS


If you think 10 years from now anybody will care about how "easy" the Heat's path was/is you're an idiot.

So basically people forgetting is the only way that Lebron's rings become legitimate and not asterisks? Nice game plan by his stans.
