    If the '11 Mavs title team were to play '13 Miami in a 7 game series now, who wins?

    Seeing how much LeBron has improved, I was just wodering, do you guys think the 2011 Dallas team that embrassed the Heat in the Finals could beat the Heat team of today?

    Miami has since added 2 guys playing key roles in Allen and Battier while LeBron has also taken his game to a whole a new level.

    For the sake of arguing, assume that all players are healthy and playing for both teams even Beaubois, Jones, and Butler. I'm doing this since Miami got to add Battier and Allen to the roster.

    For those who didn't watch the Finals or doesn't know who was on thoes teams, I put down the roster below of the Heat and the Mavs.


    2011 Mavericks team:

    Barea, Jose Juan
    Beaubois, Rodrigue
    Brewer, Corey
    Butler, Caron
    Cardinal, Brian
    Chandler, Tyson
    Haywood, Brendan
    Jones, Dominique
    Kidd, Jason
    Mahinmi, Ian
    Marion, Shawn
    Nowitzki, Dirk
    Stevenson, DeShawn
    Stojaković, Peja
    Terry, Jason

    VS



    2013 Heat team:


    Ray Allen
    Chris Andersen
    Joel Anthony
    Shane Battier
    Chris Bosh
    Mario Chalmers
    Norris Cole
    Udonis Haslem
    LeBron James
    James Jones
    Rashard Lewis
    Mike Miller
    Jarvis Varnado
    Dwyane Wade
    Who wins? And in how many games?

    Hard to say. Dallas took James out of his comfort zone. They were very well coached and Chandler prevented Miami from having any inside game.
    I might give it to Miami now (in 7) since James has the title under his belt and has improved, but we've seen him have great regular seasons before and stall, without reason, at certain points in the playoffs.
    So slight edge to the Heat.

    Easily Miami. The first season that included the big 3 was just to get their feet wet/get a feel for each others game, and that's the main reason why they lost those Finals. The reality is that the Heat aren't losing to anyone in the Finals for at least this year and possibly next year depending how the Big 3 contact situation is settled.

    Hmmm

    It's tough Dallas had their number but the Miami team is more talented.

    I may be biased but I like our 2011 team.

    The team chemistry was crazy and Dirk was playing as good as he's ever played imo.

    Plus, we got "The Janitor" Brian Cardinal.

    Match ups matter. Heat can't score or rebound on that team. This thread is basically "Miami is unbeatable in the playoffs, except this one time deep in the playoffs that doesn't count because they were new to eachother."

    I say the mavs in 7. Not because I doubt this year's heat, but I think they had too much depth and versatility, better coaching, and a man on a mission in Dirk.

    Miami.

    Had Lebron even had a normal series by his standards, they would have won.

    The way he is playing today. Brian cardinal himself couldn't stop LeBron.

    the '10 heat would of won that series probably 7 times out of 10. lebron choked there's no denying that, if he just has an average series the heat win that. the heat team now, with lebron playing free and having a ring as well as having some actual depth like battier and allen would definitely win in 5 or 6. people gotta remember, mike bibby was starting at pg back then. the heat were very thin after the big 3 with just chalmers, joel anthony, and a banged up haslem and miller to support them.

    It all depends on the script writers.

    2011 HEAT or this current HEAT team can beat that Mav's team, but once again, it depends on what the script writers want.

    Enjoy Haters

    If you think the league is rigged, don't watch bro.

    But to answer this question I would take Miami in 6
