Hmm, I wonder if Miami will go full force ahead in the coming years with starting LBJ at the 4...the main problem with this is that even if he's better as a 4, it forces Bosh to be a 5, which over the course of a 100+ game season, might really wear him down.

dont think so
I expect Miami to get a legit 5 this off season and continue to play LeBron at the 3, play Bosh at the 4.

Who's this legit 5 that they could get, and actually afford?

lol this

but seriously
I didnt mean an all star or a great player. Just a player that is actually a legit center, like Kwame Brown. Cheap but has legit size and presence in the paint
They're better off having him there than playing Bosh at 5, LeBron at 4.

Eddy Curry must have nothing for Spo to not even give him a chance.

This. I wanna see what he can do. Lol.


As far as future centers for the Heat, someone like the sucky Lopez brother is who I had in mind.

Or in the draft in the late first, Fab Melo.
Who the f**k is Mike Dunlap?

Yeah, they should go for a 7-foot front court and move Lebron to 3 as the game dictates but start him at Point. Bosh at 3 plus two defensive 7-footers would make this team unstoppable.

I don't know why they didn't post Bosh up or let him turn and face when Lebron went out. No way any of OKC's bigs can defend him that far out.
LOL at Miami! I can't remember a team that will win a championship yet it still be unimpressive.

"Not 1, not 2,..." comment will really make Lebron's 1st ring a meh.

trend stat...okc won 4 in a row vs the spurs. heat lost 3 in a row vs the C's. if any situation called for a team to break the 0 for 30 drought it would be okc. doubt it will happen..but everyone and their momma is already crowning the heat. i picked them to win too but they have one more game. time for wade and bosh to carry the heat offense.

Wilbon said it perfectly at the half. OKC appeared as if they were hoping to win whereas Miami appeared as if they know they are going to win. OKC better come up with a better defensive gameplan and more offensive movement to free up Ibaka from some easy dunks for about 10-15 points.
