Would be great if Pacers win it all. Everyone said at season start Okc vs Miami in the finals with Miami winning it all. If Indy or Memphis win it all this would be one season one would say was not predictable. I think this is what the lock out was about right? Even the playing field and give 30 teams a shot. If one of these teams win it should boost the confidence of all small market teams, Yes even the Bobcats. The uncertainty of who wins it all should help that WWF feel that it has.

Memphis vs. Indiana in the Finals might just be the lowest rated Finals in history. Stick it to Stern in his final year!

I think the rating would be lower yes but in the long run it helps. You got to start somewhere and the time is now. This is why final 4 is so huge its wide open. Its time NBA stop marking to a player. If that player get injured, retire or that team dont make the playoffs then what? Low rating. NBA teams build teams around players while they should take the more team approach. Sure you will have standouts but the calls should not cater to them.

No it wouldn't. Too many injuries this year to determine who would actually win. Not taking anything from IND cause they are ballin but if DRose were playing would they still be in it? If Kobe, Dwight, RWB, Kevin Love, Jeremy Lin😂😂 was were playin would Memphis still be in it?

Not even close, indiana is a full team that can exploit Miami's weakness with offensive bigs. This is no over reaction, this is a series that Miami should be worried about losing home court in.

That's the point. You're making it out like the Heat should be annihilating the Pacers, and Indy just got lucky. Indy held a sizeable lead IN Miami, and took a game from them. These teams are a lot closer than people are giving them credit for, and in a 7 game series the underdog CAN win if the teams are close.

That's not Miami's game. They haven't been doing it all year so they cross the line into fouling. Indy doesn't.

What are you talking about? Wade and James are two of the biggest slashers in the league. The Pacers just aren't being called for fouls that are fouls. Last night late in the game Bosh got absolutely mugged by Hibbert and no call. Coulda changed the complexion of the game if it had been called. Even Reggie Miller couldn't believe a foul wasn't called so you know it was a foul.

I'm just saying it's unbelievable to me that the refs are blowing the whistle more on Miami than Indy.

And Indy can't even argue they should be up 2-0 because Paul George didn't deserve 3 FT's for the phantom foul on Wade at the end of G1.

You can make an argument for West. But Stevenson averaged like 8 point a game the regular season. It's not he is some great player.

...except for when he's guarding Paul George.

Indys bench isn't fantastic but even five points is beneath them. David West shot 2-9 from the field.

the fact remains, Indiana didn't play their best ball as you said. they have plenty of things to improve upon, you're acting like they don't and that they played the perfect game. the numbers are the numbers- they didnt.

Next season is a waste, I don't deny it, but after that the Lakers will have money to spend.

If the Heat lose then why wouldn't he think about opting out.

An aging roster and losing either Wade or bosh, yes I'm sure he's salivating at the thought.

tell that to the Knicks. they might remember him dropping 25 and 10 in the close-out game six. :laugh2:

hes averaging about ten points per game for the playoffs. i never said he was a great player but he shot a poor shooting percentage; micro point being, he can do better. macro point being, Justins analysis is incorrect.

Now I'm hoping for that outcome, though we all know Stern (or someone) will make the refs do their best to make sure that it won't happen.

Seriously, the NBA is becoming a joke when it comes to the refs. I REALLY hope some big scandal (bigger than the Tim Donaghy thing) hits the league soon.

Pacers should be up 2-0 going home. What they are doing is much more sustainable than the Bulls winning with 3rd stringers. They cause a ton of matchup problems with Miami. They are better team than they were last season.

Indy is making me feel better about losing to them. They are much better than I gave them any credit for.

Crazy how a team nobody thought had a ton of talent and got by solely on their team defense might actually have three all stars.

Miami is getting called on a ton of defensive fouls because they're hacking Roy Hibbert. It has nothing to do with being aggressive with the ball. There's a reasonable number of offensive foul calls. They're getting whistles blown on defense. Anderson and Haslem had 9 of their 27 fouls.

When you say teams building around players(so obvious right?) I think of KG in MINNY, TMAC in ORL, IVERSON in PHI, BRON in CLE, CP3 in N.O. and so forth AKA not knowing how to put allstar-complimentary specialists around those, we all seen what KG did with SPREE-CASSELL just like we seen what BRON-IVERSON did with GIBSON-MCKIE as sidekicks

now last I checked and heard it was plenty of HOF type players playing together spread out so I don't understand what you're saying, from the 60-70s and up until now

the best teams are usually playing with a couple of 'how did they make it' in between that make it every blue moon

I'm going to have to agree with this. As much as I would love to see a small market cinderella team win it all, Miami is going to curb stomp the Pacers in their own house.

I think Pacers-Spurs could draw some decent ratings. Part of ratings is team loyalties/superstars but another part is the competitiveness of the series.

ratings from hardcore NBA fans. Sorry, but it would be a failure for the NBA ratings.

ratings from hardcore NBA fans. Sorry, but it would be a failure for the NBA ratings.No matter who plays at this point the ratings would be lower than a LA/Mia or OKC/Mia. The way Pacers are playing the finals will still be viewed by as many. The point is to get the NBA not to rely on 3 teams for high ratings and promote a competitive balance so what you said prove my point my point. You have 4 teams still playing who are suppose to be the best yet you feel if Miami is not there then its a drag. How do you think an Pacer fan would feel going to a game knowing they have no shot to win the title because the Nba will make sure Miami win to get high rating? You a pretty much saying Pacers should not win because they are not that popular. We have seen Detroit,Spurs,La,Boston,Mavs,Mia over the last few years win title.

Deep in our minds we predict a Spurs Miami finals with Miami winning it all. How fun is that that you can predict the NBA title from before training camp? This is why no one watch during the season the games are predictable. You know the winner before the game start so why watch wait until the forth quarter or just catch espn after watching football or a movie. You know your team have no shot so what is the point. At this point people still feel Miami will win because the NBA want them in the finals and thats suck for a Indy fan. People watch suspense the art of not knowing. Do you read a book from the end?

the bobcats wil upset the heat in the 1 - 8 matchup even tho joel anthony wil average a triple double with blocks and mike miller wil average 45.6 PPG. then in the next round bobcats wil kil the knicks in 4. game 4 is won by JR Smith accidently tipping in a rebound at their own basket at the buzzer. then in the eastern conference finals they wil face the bulls injury depleted team. in game 1, 9 of the bull players will al tear their ACLS resulting in a 5 vs 2 player matchup. bobcats wil win this series in 7. then in the finals they wil face the LA lakers but because the lakers always struggle against the bobcats the lakers lose in 4. the avg final score is 56 points

Would be great if Pacers win it all. Everyone said at season start Okc vs Miami in the finals with Miami winning it all. If Indy or Memphis win it all this would be one season one would say was not predictable. I think this is what the lock out was about right? Even the playing field and give 30 teams a shot. If one of these teams win it should boost the confidence of all small market teams, Yes even the Bobcats. The uncertainty of who wins it all should help that WWF feel that it has.

I need the Pacers to beat Miami so Lebron will leave and join the Lakers.

I think if he leaves then he's going back to CLE. He would get hated on if he joined LA but the same wouldn't happen if he went to the Cavs.

He's already hated and so are the Lakers, he'd be at home.

But he doesn't want to be hated. Sure he's going to hear it from fans of rival teams but a majority of people have done a 180 on Lebron. When is the last time he got an overwhelming amount of hate? If he goes back to CLE he will receive nothing but love except from Heat fans.

Actually people watch for entertainment value. This is why certain stars or franchises attract more viewers than the boring teams without attractive players to watch. it's pretty simple. Every year jordan's team were the favorites and fans watched cause jordan was box office and entertaining. People watched tiger woods when he dominated golf cause he was box office

An NBA Final without LeBron is not profitable enough for the league. They will make sure the Heat get to the Final...

I like the Spurs model, well coached coach and build they always get players you never heard of and they remain great. But I would like to see the Pacers win it all. The under dog the team no one expect.
