I see Miami going to the finals every year. No one in the east can stop them. As much as I love the Bulls there is no way in hell can they overthrow Miami. Who knows, maybe lebron will get his 6 rings if it continues like this.


So, how many final appearances will lebron have? this will be his third finals appearance. and his only 27 in his ultimate prime. The future is looking good for him

Eh, ACL injuries usually take some time to be fully healed. I think Miami has a great chance at making it to the Finals again.

They got took to a game 7 and were trailing in both of the last two series. They aren't invincible

this means nothing. while the east gets weaker they get stronger.

Miami is definetly the Kings of the East, and with Rose out for a while next year as well, I cant see the Bulls overtaking them next season. I can see Boston keeping KG, but not Allen and while they do have money there wont be a Chris Paul or Dwight Howard free agent they could aquire so again, I cant see them beating Miami when they are another year older. Indiana will be better next year, but are still miles behind Miami and they cant close the gap in 1 year. The 76ers are a bunch of small guys who cant guard Lebron and Wade, or Bosh for that matter. The Knicks should be better next year, but I still like Miami against them. Orlando wont keep Howard, and Atlanta are underachievers. Brooklynn might team Dwight/Deron up, but again, I like Miami in a 7 game series. So I think Miami should be heavy favorites to make it back to the Finals next year, and pending on what the Bulls do, even the year after that.

Yea I don't see MIA getting beat by anyone in the EAST unless teams make major upgrades. They just have too much firepower and the east is getting weaker.

Lebron is the best player in the world.

Wade, even though he takes heat, he's still an incredibly efficient 25ppg scorer that rebounds and passes and is arguably the best defensive 2 guard in the league.

Then to top things off you add a top 5-10 PF.

I mean when MIA got together I really thought they would win 7 titles.

IND if they could sign Dwil might have a shot. Knicks might have a shot if they stay healthy and can add a Nash type player.

CHI maybe if Rose recovers and they can add a Ray Allen type.

But overall MIA just has much more talent than any team out in the East.

So that's what Lebron meant when he said not 1, not 2, not 3, etc... He was talking about how many eastern conf. Championships they'd win.. Now it all makes sense..

Knicks definitely have a shot. Them and the Bulls. If the Knicks sign Nash they lose Linn though, no?

It depends on the way the arbitrator rules about bird rights, knicks are arguing they should have Lin & Novak's BR's. If they win that case they could keep those guys AND add a Nash, or Ray Allen. Then NY would def have a shot against MIA.

So you expect that next year also? Boston are going to lose players and another year older and Rose is not gonna be 100% and the Heat will add more players who will want to play for a chance to win now. I truly think they win this year they win back to back.

It doesn't matter because he's not going to win. LeBron is overrated in the playoffs.


LeBron in series in which his team was eliminated:

2006: 44.2%
2007: 35.6%
2008: 35.5%
2009: 48.7%
2010: 44.7%
2011: 47.8%

Average: 42.75%

LeBron in the finals:

10 games, 2-8 record, 42.4%, 19.5 ppg

Indy, Chi & NY have a chance if they make good moves and stay healthy...

Wade is Injury prone, and getting old...

They'll probably make it next year considering the Bulls will be depleted with a sub-par Rose and the Celtics are possibly blowing it up.

Every team has a shot... that's why they play the games.

But Miami is the favorite to come out of the East again next season. Won't bother looking further ahead than that because anything can happen.

Haha Knicks think they have a chance in the future. Could you imagine if LeBron would have even tried in their series. Do you want to play the LeBron you saw in games 6 & 7 of the ECF. Doubt it. He took the Knicks lightly and they got ran through.

I see you like to pick the stats you want to show so you can bash him. Put all stats. Including advanced and normal stats for when he lost the series. As well as the stats for when he won a series.

reading this just makes me admire kobes 5 rings even more. kobe won every title of his with an ASTOUNDING western conference. the highest the wc has ever been too.

00 the west had portland, san antonio and utah
01 the west had portland, san antonio, dallas and sac town
02 the west had sac town, san antonio, and dallas
in 09 the west had san antonio, dallas, phoenix,
in 10 the west had dallas, san antonio, okc and phoenix

Well bulls had a much better team than the celtics this year but injuries just killed us, but in two years when rose is fully healthy again and rose gets stronger, dwade gets much older and the bulls would have a shot in dethroning the heat but that's in two years. Unless pacers and Philly drastically improve, there is a great shot for the heat to make the finals again. Question is, can they beat the thunder who IMO will be a dynasty this decade.

BKdoubleStacker
06-12-2012, 12:53 PM
They got lucky this year...not saying the knicks would've beat them, but losing shumpert hurt them badly, they could've maybe won another game. Rose tore his ACL. If the Celtics didnt lose bradley, they most likely would've beaten the heat.

I think Wade is going to continue to be dragged and declined by injuries/age. He will still be a star next year.

Kobe WON? Not shaq right?

Kobe WON. Hi Gasol and Bynum!

Ask yourself, if Lbj was shaq teammate in those title years or Wade... But you are so proud of Kobe :clap:

Yes Kobe did win, he was apart of the Lakers organization!

I want to see what happens before the 2014 season.

The luxury tax is going to jump to about 4 to 1 which Miami will not want to pay. There will be casualties for a lot of teams.

NY and LA are probably the only two teams that wont mind being in the new tax structure.

king4day
06-12-2012, 01:12 PM
Chicago and possibly NY will be the only two teams with a legit shot at taking out Miami.
If Indy can retain their core players and sign Eric Gordon, I would throw them in there as well.

In the end, Miami's bench is very thin. If they don't upgrade with piece that are actually reliable, then this will continue to happen.

In my opinion, I can't see anyone beating the Heat right now if things stay as is.

I don't think people have understood what Lebron was saying during his "coronation" when he signed in Miami. He always is a little hard to understand but when he said

"We didn't come here to win one championship, not two, not three, not four, not five, not six, not seven...".

What he meant was that he would win zero championships with Miami.

Keep in mind Wade will be 36 in 6 years.

I think Wade will be a "young" 36 if that makes sense.

By that I mean, he isn't like Kobe who came out of HS, he played 3 years in college, and technically has the same NBA mileage on his body as LeBron since they came out the same year.

That being said, I do think he will decline quite a bit in 6 years, but the Heat will keep adding pieces, its not like their roster will stay stagnant.

In 6 years, LeBron and Bosh will be 34 I believe lol.

I disagree, I mean Wade is an old 30 right now the way he plays. Kobe evolved his game since he came in, Kobe turned into a fantastic post up/mid game/fade away player like MJ did. Wade still plays recklessly and his post up/fade away is mediocre at best.

You'll see Lebron regress significantly as well unless he develops a fantastic mid game soon.

Kobe was the guy who dominated those 3 yrs against the West teams when Shaq used to get into foul trouble.

Shaq dominated the finals against the likes of Mutombo, Todd Mucollaugh, Matt Geiger, and Rik Smits.

As long as the east remains weak Lebron should have a free pass to the finals for years to come. Lebron wisely chose to play in the east for a reason...
