I think the shooters for both teams. Parker/Bron will get theirs. Then wade/bosh/Timmy/Manu will all have their stamp on the games as well. But whosever shooters are hitting is going to be the X factor to me.

Wade and Manu. You never know what you are gonna get from these two at this point. But whenever they click their teams seem nearly unstoppable. So this series basically is depending on how consistent these two plays throughout assuming LeBron and Parker are gonna get their usual.

This.

Frankly, if they get the Wade they got yesterday, this could very well be over in 5-6 games, so Wade is definitely the biggest x factor in my eyes.

wade and manu could very well be it. neither are playing like "wade" nor "manu".


i still think for the heat it more or less comes down to the three point shot from allen, battier, chalmers or miller. they need one to get hot, like allen last night, and that tends to do the trick.

leonard is a good pick too. for the obvious defensive purposes.

Kawhi Leonard. We already know how good his defense is, but if he keeps up his 13 PPG(with a ****** FT%) and 8 RPG, the Spurs might just win it all.

Honestly the "X" factors have now become a player that is apart of each "Big 3".

WAde & Manu. Both are hit and miss. If Manu comes out big while Wade struggles, Spurs win, and vice-versa.

That was my first thought.

Spurs: Kawhi Leonard

Heat: Mario Chalmers


Wade and Manu are both good choices...but that was to easy given the fact that they are both a part of their team's "Big 3". So I went with 2 role players...

The X factor for the Heat could be anybody. Ray Allen, Mario Chalmers...even Battier or Mike Miller, both of whom killed OKC last year when it truly mattered.

For the Spurs, I really think it is a combination of the bench and Tim Duncan. Last year the Thunder just had no inside game, Ibaka and Kendrick Perkins really **** the bed (albeit Perkins was hurt, but doesn't change anything). This is Duncan's last chance to shine, he needs to go out there with his A game.

The bench needs to keep this game close when Duncan, Manu, and Parker aren't on the floor. They don't play quick up-tempo like Miami, so playing fast catch-up isn't their style. They win strategically.

I think Danny Green is the single most important player in the Finals. Wade is fighting injuries. He will have to follow a young, off ball moving Danny Green all series long. Through picks, misdirections, etc.

It will be tough.

Manu Ginobili

Manu Ginobili- needs to have a good series and spark the Spurs 2nd unit.
Tiago Splitter- has to be effective running the pick and roll. When the Heat go small he needs to be able to capitalize in the low block.
Boris Diaw- He will be used when LBJ tries to post up. Diaw is actuallt able capable low post defender who has decent size and speed to try and limit LBJ. Green and or Leonatd cant handle Lebron down low.

Role players- Geeen, Joseph, Neal, Bonner need to play smart, limit turnovers and make open shots

Tmac is the X-factor.
