Miami In 6

Finally. Finally. And Finally!

Finally blogger and their stupid little outages are a thing of the past, clearing the way for an important philosophical debate concerning feats of strength, fortitude and skill.

Upholding a long-standing tradition of MMers waxing ineloquently on professional sporting events, here come the predictions. Of course, of course -- the primary purpose of this website is our ongoing discussion about doing theology in the Midwest. But being a blog created by the likes of Andy, Dusty and Co., we'd be remiss if we didn't come down from our Ivory Towers every once and while and talk shop. Specifically, the NBA Finals, my babies!

Miami in 6 games. Jason Williams is no longer a joke. Antoine Walker has found a home. Shaq looks likes he's 27 again. And nobody but nobody can stop Dwayne Wade in the lane. Dirk's good. Terry's got game.

But come on people. Miami in 6.

I disagree with your assessment. I think you have over hyped the bigger names and missed the players that will help the Heat. I think Posey and Haslem do more good for the team than Walker. Walker is a cancer. Williams is good, but Jason Terry is better. So is Devin Harris. I think you will see Payton and Williams become mostly ineffective for the series.

Wade is upstoppable. He is the total package, but now he too must contend with a team that has a totally unstoppable player as well. Dirk cannot be guarded by anyone on the Heat either. Shaq is huge, but too many teams have figured out ways to take him out of the game, and Dampier and Diop are good enough to do that at least for a couple games. I like the players surrounding Dirk better. Stackhouse and Terry have really found their niche and their games are improved by the presence of Dirk. Howard is amazing. I think he and Wade could be a good matchup, obviously Wade wins, but if Howard can even slow him down a little, than I think you have to give the edge to Dallas, especially since they have game one now.

Dallas in 6.

pat riley's going to have to conjur the ghost of pre-HIV magic johnson or something, because this miami heat team has hit a brick wall called 'we have no floor leadership.'

also, isn't gary payton like 80 by now?
