Default Better Finals: down 0-2 or 1-3?

Wade came back to win 4 straight, Bron came back to win 3 but faced elimination

Wade was by himself.

Lebron had Kyrie. But the Warriors are a much tougher opponent.

1-3. There is no margin for error in the situation. 0-2 is impressive but you can afford to lose one game. Your back is not to the wall to the same degree.

I'd have to give the edge to coming back from 1-3, and this coming from a huge Wade fan. Winning 3 elimination games has more pressure.

Wade certainly had less help and it was more of a one man show, but 1-3 had never been overcome before in the finals.

Considering the Cavs were down 0-2 AND 1-3, it is easily the Cavaliers.


My prediction of Kyrie being the difference ultimately rang true.

The 1-3 also started out as 0-2.

Lebron + Alpha Irving + great supporting cast beats exposed team

Dwade + washed-up Shaq + who? beats surging Mavs team.


'06 finals >>>>> '16 finals

But Wade still had:

Alonzo Morning, Jason Williams, Antonie Walker, Gary Payton.

Even some of them are old but still very quality players.

And? Last I checked, FT's are a part of game, and Wade was the most relentless rim attacker since young Jordan.
