Just listening to First Take and they were talking about what an easy cake walk it's going to be for the Heat this year. The Heat's two toughest match ups are playing each other in the first round (Boston and NY) and OKC is most likely coming out of the west and will likely get swept in the finals as they are not nearly as strong as they were last year with Harden. Not only is OKC not as strong, the Heat are much better with the additions of Allen and Lewis. The Heat will face zero competition in the east and only to play either NY or Boston instead of both. This is seriously a joke and the NBA is not even fun to watch ever since "The Decision". The Heat are just to unfairly stacked. Dan Gilbert was concerned about 29 teams becoming the Washington Generals, well guess what, that already happened back in 2011 when this disgrace was formed. Not only are the Heat so far above the rest of the league in talent, they play in one of the weakest conferences in NBA history. The playoffs would be a lot more fun to watch if the east wasn't such a damn joke and the Heat actually had some competition this year. At least last year, Bosh was injured so it was a little more exciting when the Heat played the Celtics in the ECF. Now, this years playoffs are set to be a real sleeper. B-O-R-I-N-G!
