It's official. The 2013 NBA Finals have their finalists. I could attempt to write something intelligent, analyzing the participants, or perhaps predicting the results. Somehow, that doesn't feel right for this situation. So instead, I'm just going to post this 5 minute long video of peoples' heads exploding.
Feel free to comment with your own predictions, or just joyfully experience the sight of human heads violently bursting open over and over...
I'm hoping the Spurs roll the Heat up, but I'm skeptical as to whether that'll come to fruition.
I wish Bruce Bowen was still playing... let's face it, he would produce way more than TMac. And for "production", I mean kicking James in the nuts and throwing Wade against the stands.
Do the Spurs twin towers bother the heat as much as Hibbert did? Hard to say. Certainly the Spurs are a deeper, more skilled, more experienced, better coached and better executing team than Indiana. But can they slow LeBron enough? Can the Heat contain Parker enough?
Also, remember that the 2-3-2 format favors the team with home court (it's hard to win 3 straight at home).
I'm betting that the Spurs take one in Miami, take two of the middle three at home, and take another one in Miami. The odds aren't bad. That said, if Miami wins the first two it is all over. If they take two in SA it's all over. The Spurs can't let themselves get in a position where they need to beat the Heat twice in a row in Miami. Ain't happening.
So, Spurs in 6.
