NBA Finals Thread: Mavs are NBA Champions! :O

Who'd a thought, Bosh played the most solid of the three during the Finals. Too bad he didn't get more touches. I felt that he had the Dallas defense moving more than anyone.

Wade was easily their best player in that series.

For sure, Wade was their best player but Bosh was the one who consistently forced the Dallas defense to move around when he posted. He started off slow but shot 47%, 50% and 77% in Games 4, 5, and 6. I think Spo should have called more posts to him once Dallas settled down vs the Wade one-man drives and especially when Wade and James go cold.

Was bad coaching at certain spots and it also doesn't help when one player doesn't want to touch the ball.

Lol, give it time. I still guarantee you they win at least 3-4 rings, unless D12, CP3, Durant, and Dirk all decide to play together or something like that hahah. Wade and LBJ are still great, they do have some serious holes on their team though that they should fill over time.

You have a team with two players that control the ball the vast majority of the time, and the other guys stand around waiting for the catch-and-shoot scraps...and the offense isn't all that effective? Imagine that.

The team that won the NBA title this year had DeShawn Stevenson, JJ Barea, Ian Mahinmi, & Brian Cardinal getting rotational minutes...but MIAMI's roster has holes? It's not like LeBron balled his ass off and the team around him came up short.

That was a below average offense during the playoffs, and their offense will always be exactly that as long as they dribble and chew up clock the way that they do. The difference in ball movement in this series was STAGGERING, and the way that LeBron & Wade play are the main reasons why.

They're gonna win a couple of titles, but it's going to be because of their team defense.

Yes, even though Miami had greater individual talent, Dallas had far fewer holes. They had the superstar leader (Dirk), vet PG who knew how to run a team (Kidd), perimeter D (Marion, Stevenson, even Kidd to a degree), low post D (Chandler), the penetrating PG who could break guys down off the dribble and set up shooters (Barea), electric scoring off the bench (JET), etc. The Heat lacked most of those dimensions.

Dallas only had one NBA all-star.

And for all intents and purposes Miami had 2. Yes, I know Bosh is technically an all-star and someone like Tyson Chandler is not. But does anyone here not think Miami would be way better if they had Chandler instead of Bosh?

Jason Kidd and Jason Terry are better than most all stars during the last 10 years. The All Star label has very little merit in player abilities.

they'd be much better with him, he'll play d, block shots, rebound, get alley-oops from wade/james and not ever need to run plays for him, even a shawn marion type would help them, a guy who get his stats without having to run plays for him

I can't imagine how atrocious Miami's offense would be if Tyson Chandler was there instead of Chris Bosh. All of the iso's that Bosh scores on in the high post? Gone. All of the pick and pop? Not a chance.

You think teams packed the paint on Miami NOW?

Chris Bosh is a better player than Tyson Chandler. Chandler's a decent rebounder and a weak shot blocker/changer.
I've never understood why people consider Tyson Chandler to be a shotblocker.
Bosh is just pretty much a jump shooter. For some reason I thought he had more skills then he does. Also his defense is very average at best.

bosh can only affect the game in 1 area, thats when his jump shot is on like a couple of those chicago games, chandler has more of an impact in the unnoticed areas of the game, if the heat had him he could play center, start haslem, he'll hit the 15-17 footers bosh would normally get plus you'd be much better on d

That was pretty racist, Val.
I agree with LA on this one. Miami would not be better with Chandler instead of Bosh. Chandler with Bosh would be pretty goo though and Chandler is a FA

Chris Bosh is at his most effective as the best player on a poor team like he was in Toronto. For a team like Miami, adding the 2nd best defensive player in the interior to go along with Haslem woiuld be better than Bosh + Anthony.

He's not a shot blocker but he does disrupt a lot of shots. MIA would lose any scoring Bosh gives them on offense but their defense would be better overall. That perimeter defense with Chandler in the middle along with this mobility to help would be near shut down. Chandler would also help with a lot of clean up when Wade and Lebron drive and/or a throw down from an alley oop. Bosh just isn't as aggressive following up towards the basket and would rather step back. Chandler's athleticism would also allow them to play two bigs, say, Chandler, Z (outside shot) with Haslem, Wade, and James or replace Haslem with a 3-point shooting 3 spot.

They don't need 3 scorers and this is what gets MIA offense in trouble. All they need is rebounding, two scorers and one sharp-shooter.

It is always easier to get a spot up shooter and replace Bosh than it is to get athleticism and length on the defensive end in the key.
