This Heat team is the most fun bandwagon team since the first Warriors championship run. They are unbelievably great to watch.

How is their no nba talk here? Some great playoff series going on.
Well, there WERE some great series going on. Hated to see the Nuggets fizzle out. MPJ has some work to do.

Here’s to an exciting Finals.

Truly interesting finals matchup. Lakers with the clear top 2 players, but the Heat might have the next best 4-5. If the Heat hit their 3's, and Butler and Bam don't burn too much energy defending AD & LeBron and can contribute offensively at a high level, the Heat feel like a live underdog to me.

I feel somewhat cheated that it's happening in the bubble, because LeBron coming back to Miami to play in front of that crowd as an opponent would be an all-time, classic story line.

Yeah, this series is a very tough call. I don't think it'd be an upset if Miami wins, because they're deep & versatile. Lakers have LeBron & AD, but their other players just aren't as good as Miami's team. Just my opinion, but we'll see.....I'm looking forward to a great series.

And Luke, I'm sorry I don't participate in this thread more, but I guess my focus on this site is way toward the Cardinals.

Wasn't totally expecting the Lakers to come right out and punch Miami in the face with their physicality. That was a comprehensive, demoralizing loss for the Heat. If any team can bounce back, it's them, but man that was a beatdown.

Every time an announcer is commenting and says "Jimmy Butler says..." I instinctively sarcastically repeat "Oh, Jimmy Butler says..." like Tom Hanks in the Burbs.

The fact that someone gave anything to take Horford's terrible contract makes me happy.

The Morey hire is extremely interesting. Think it's about the best move they could make if they want Simmons and Embiid to fit together long-term. He's good at building rosters around stars that previously wouldn't gel.
