LeBron thinks Heat best prepared for NBA playoff grind

Published Add your comment

LeBron James believes his Miami Heat team are best prepared to go on and win the NBA title because of the experience that the two-time reigning champions have in their locker.

The NBA star is a veteran of the big games these days with four league MVP's to his name, not to mention the two NBA Finals MVP awards.

As opposed to other teams such as the Indiana Pacers and the Chicago Bulls - who have struggled to get off the ground in the playoffs thus far - James insists his team know how to turn it on when it matters.

Even though King James knows what to do when it matters, he does admit that every year feels different as the Heat look to continue their dynasty.

“It’s a dramatic change for me, obviously,” James told the Miami Herald. “My third year — the first time I made the playoffs — to now, I understand what I’m looking at, I understand what’s going to be coming after me and our team.”

Fellow Heat star Dwyane Wade agrees with LeBron about the fact that experience tells in the post-season.

Referring to the Brooklyn Nets ability to defeat the Toronto Raptors in Canada on the opening night of their first round series, Wade says teams with veteran experience have got something that you just can't teach.

"You will continue to see throughout the playoffs that the veteran teams, you don’t have the youth or athleticism or that motor that young guys have, but you have something that you just can’t teach and you can’t fast track, and that’s the ability to understand the moments in the playoffs and what you need to do, especially down the stretch,” Wade said.
