The Miami Heat are back in the NBA finals for the fourth straight year, That puts this franchise in elite company with some of the greats, like the Cetics and Lakers. Many teams would love one shot at a title; now Miami is gunning for its third straight.
The big three — LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh — have shined this postseason. Let’s also give credit to Erik Spoelstra for a solid coaching job. This team is a lot more than just the big three. Ray Allen has been Mr. Clutch over the years. Udonis Haslem and Chris “Birdman” Andersen help up front, Mario Chalmers and Norris Cole are factors in the backcourt, This is a true team!
The Heat knocked off the Pacers in the Eastern Conference finals, and it is back to the drawing board for Larry Bird’s team. After earning the top seed and homecourt advantage for the playoffs, the Pacers had a disappointing end to the postseason. There are many questions for the future, starting with free agent Lance Stephenson. Will the team try to bring him back?
Congrats to the Heat, waiting for the Thunder-Spurs winner in the NBA championship.
