I was mainly referring to the 2013 regular season Heat. Wade's injury obviously made things more difficult in the playoffs, and that's why I said "when healthy". That team had peak Lebron, Wade was still a top 10 player and the most efficient guard in the league, Bosh was a 17/7 third option, and they had great veteran role players. Chalmers also shot a career best 41% from 3. They were great on both sides of the floor and had the best chemistry of any of the big 3 Heat teams. If not for Wade's bone bruise injury late in the season, I'm not sure any team pushes them past 5 games in the playoffs.

WOAH woah hold up OP slow down on the bandwagon. Lets see if LeBron can carry these group of misfits to the Finals again, before we automatically declare they sweep the playoffs.

yeah.....sweeping a 60 win Hawks team in the CF with 4 all-stars and who had the number 1 seed..... is a very rare feat.

They'd better. They play in the Least, have a record-breaking luxury tax bill to buy a ring Yankees style, and are SUPER STACKED.

No excuses.

If they make it it'll be the same outcome as the previous 2 years.

East team gets through the piss easy East, then get embarrassed when they can't match it with the West.

Of course im angry, Cavs will be huge underdogs against any team in the finals. It would be a major upset if the Cavs were somehow able to win.

But imagine Bron doing the impossible, leading Cleveland to their first ring by upsetting a stacked WC team tho? Top 5 all time imo

It's about matchups.


Certain teams have matchup advantages. Should I need to explain that?



You know that Spurs matchup up well with the Cavs.

They don't actually. Spurs shat on Miami because they had no bigs. Cavs now have Love, Thompson, Mozgov and Verejao. Warriors and okc are a worse matchup

If Mozgov was healthy, they would have.
