Interesting similarities. Maybe Heat fans and Laker fans have something in common after all...Nah

Eerily similar.

Does this mean Heat get swept in the semifinals next playoffs? (Mavs - Lakers)

LeBron is great enough to lead his team past the first round single handily. He can even get them to the ECF/Finals. LeBron is a much better player than Kobe. Kobe was never successful without all stars around him because he was one dimensional. He didn't do everything for the team and that's why I can't see this happening.

no **** but if you're going to say the same might happen because of deja vu, it's only right that I correct you and say it's not going to happen because lebron is a much better leader than Kobe. think outside the box, not everything is all X's and O's.

Cool to bring this up now, I hope?

All of the similarities lined up exactly, until this year.

The 2011 Lakers got swept by the Dallas Mavericks in the semifinals. The 2014 Heat are on their way to their 4th straight Finals.

It's over!

[See post #3. I called it!]

Too bad the 2014 Heat haven't faced 1/10th of the team that the 2011 Mavs were.

Pretty sure Kobe or Wade with scrubs could have gotten to the east finals this year. The east is historically bad

The difference is the HEAT don't have an aging franchise player holding back his all-star teammates because he wants to still be the man.

Oops, I said it.

It's all about how you write the narrative

While these are some mildly interesting similarities, I just don't think this is that unusual or eery. Essentially a team that won a title with Shaq fell apart after Shaq left and then won a couple of titles thanks to some savvy work by their respective front offices. Who cares about the number of games in each series? Those numbers are pretty irrelevant and it's not unusual for teams to go down 3-2 and come back to win the series.

Also, the biggest knock on this supposed "deja vu" scenario is that the similarities are already over. The Lakers got swept in the second round of the 2011 playoffs and the Heat are about to go to their fourth straight NBA Finals. If the Heat had gotten swept against the Nets (a team like Dallas that had a bunch of veteran journeyman on the roster), then things would have started getting weird. But that's not the case.

What all-star teammates are you referring to? Bynum was injured throughout those runs
