Last season The Lakers and The Heat didn’t even make it into the playoffs.

This season they both meet in the NBA Finals.
What a difference a year makes.

It’s going to be an interesting series, nobody on the heats requires double team. They need to make JB a 3 point shooter and stay home on herro and DR

AD and DH will dominate the post. The number of offensive rebounds those two will generate will be obscene. Who on their team can defend AD?

They have a couple of seasoned vets in Crowder and Iggy.

Who's mustache is grosser?

Jimmy Butler's or Gordon Hayward's?


The only correct answer is Harden.


Eh.. I think Harden‘s mustache is actually OK it’s his beard that questionable and his hair lately has been vexing my spirit.

Something about Gordon Hayward‘s mustache really bugs. Lol


Haha. He probably plays better without it.

Not to mention we can go Morris, McGee, Kuzma on him also.

I agree, much like what happened to the Joker, we will be coming at him in waves.

I think in terms of power, Dwight is the only one that can match Bam. I'd like to see Kieff give it a go, but Kuzma would get eaten alive.

Agreed.. I think Kuz can do a good job on their perimeter shooters. Not so much Bam.

Howard will put the clamps on him..

I was excited about us getting Howard back, I knew it would pay off, and it is.

Howard is a great look for Bam. And of course, AD is a good option too.

Ya, putting Kuzma on Bam is a shortcut to disaster. I like Morris's physicality. But he's not equipped to deal with him either. Put Howard and AD on him.
McGee can defend him well enough. But rebounding would be a worry.

There are two guys on this team that can slow Bam down IMO. Maybe 3. And Kuz/Morris/McGee aren't close to being those guys.

Kuz had his lunch taken by a freaking rookie. Bam will send him home in a body bag if he guards him.

I'm not worried about AD and Howard not dominating the paint, I'm worried that they have a lot of perimeter guys to throw at LeBron. If it's close and AD is having a bad game, and LeBron has to go like he did in g5 WCF, they have at least 3 guys who can make him work for his shots, Iggy, Crowder, Butler. And unlike 2 superstars crosstown, Iggy and Butler will not choke in close games.
But at the end of the day, if AD does what's he's supposed to do, games should not be close and should not come down to 2 or 3 possessions at the end.

Paul George to Brooklyn for Levert, Dinwidde, and picks? But then what would LAC do with Kawhi? How good is Paul George, really?

KD+Kyrie+PG13+Pressure to win East = implosion.

KD/Kyrie will get sensitive to the adversity and I think it’s been well proven now that PG13 is simply not a guy you can count on in the playoffs.

How good is Paul George? Top 10? 11-20?

Should have chosen the Lakers, Paul.

Top 20 in the regular season. Top 100 in postseason.
But being a 3rd option in Brooklyn might be a good thing for him. But he needs to be a clampdown defender like Ron Artest or Shane Battier type. Not sure if he wants to play that role though.

Why was he able to average 28.6 PPG in the playoffs for OKC?

Do you think we could have won a ring last year with him, LeBron, Ingram, and Ball?
