The NBA Finals are always a heavily watched spectacle but this year is more significant than normal.
That’s exactly what happens when you’re dealing with a team in the Miami Heat, which are looking to 3-Peat and a San Antonio Spurs team that has been one of the most successful franchises in sports history and is looking to win their 5th NBA championship.
The winner this year will have to prove that they learned and fixed their mistakes from last year’s duel and that their bench units as well as their starters can play well.
This series will almost surely come down to six games as it nearly did last year for the Spurs until the remarkable Ray Allen three saved the Heat and pushed them along with LeBron James to their Finals win.
Who wins out you ask?
It is going to be incredibly close. I couldn’t tell you, it’s an absolute toss up in every sense but I’m going with Miami. With a consistent and almost always effective James, Miami has a great chance bet but add in a healthy Dwyane Wade and now reliable three point shooter, Chris Bosh and the “Big 3” is deadlier than ever.
But if San Antonio has taught us anything, it’s to never, ever underestimate them and always see them as a threat. They too have a healthy Manu Ginobili now and a revitalized Tim Duncan. And while Tony Parker's fitness was a question mark due to injuries beforehand, Spurs Head Coach Gregg Popovich has placed his faith in Parker no matter what.
This will be a Finals series for the ages and any basketball fan needs to to tune in throughout and witness history.
My Personal Picks:
Miami Heat wins NBA Finals vs San Antonio Spurs in 6 games.
