Re: Who will win in the finals maimi or OKC??
Yes, I am, I am honestly ticked with the fact that lebron joined the heat, the way he went about it, the promises he made "to win multiple championships", and the fact that there were plenty of better choices to go to then miami from a basketball perspective, yet he still chose the heat because he believed he wasn't a good enough player to lead a team to a championship. I said the knicks had a great squad, they were filled with a bunch of key players, not stars, guys like galanari and wilson chandler, who would've worked amazing with lebron, and from a pure basketball perspective would probably work better then wade and bosh, add amare who and that knicks team would've been a much better team then the heat, as oppose to lebron wade and bosh putting up practically all of miami's points.

The stats you through at me were old and outdated, james made a ton of clutch shots as a cav, not as a heat.
No, what I'm saying is when lebron was the one doing the scoring, they lost, it took wade to get them over the hump, due to lack of supporting cast. On a normal team, with actual players surrounding him instead of bosh, wade, and a bunch of shits who occasionally get hot, his stats would be more then enough, it would no doubt lead a team to the finals, but with the heat he needs wade, wade is always going to be batman and james robin, I'm not a skip bayles fan either, he's a buffoon if you ask me, shouldn't be a sports analyst, but that point he does make and he's right about it, no matter what james does he's always going to be robin.
Like I said, they were a squad, they had a bunch of good players, but in all serious how many people can name more then just jordon and pippin? When people look back on this heat team they will see a bunch of all stars teaming up, they wont see it the same way people look back on michael jordon, or any of the other NBA greats, simply because they didn't require teaming up. If Magic and bird teamed up, you really think they would have the same legacy?
Lebron is a great talent, in a pick up game, if I could choose anyone in the world, hands down lebron, no questions asked, but he will never be an NBA great, he gave that up by teaming up with wade and bosh.
If you're wondering btw, the main reason I seriously don't want him to win a championship is the comment he made about winning multiple championships, I would love to see it blow up in his face.
