2014 NBA Finals Predictions
San Antonio Spurs vs. Miami Heat
I picked the Heat to win it all back in October. Granted, I picked them to take out the Warriors, so there's that.
But I have found this to be a very tough series for me to pick as I can find many a reason for either team to become champions of the Association.
The Heat only have the best basketball player in the world. Sure the supporting cast is not the best that LeBron James has had during his time in Miami but Dwyane Wade still can get it done, Miami has the shooters to space out the floor and coach Erik Spoelstra is not afraid to tinker with his lineup to get the right fits. Also, did I mention LeBron James?
Meanwhile for the Spurs, they are no JV program. There are many reasons why they had the best record in the NBA this year whether it be their high-powered offense, the many talented lineups they can throw out there on any given time, or the best coach in the NBA in our good friend, Gregg Popovich. It is clear to even the casual observer that either of these teams would be worthy champions.
My mind is telling me to go with the Spurs but my gut is telling me to stick with the Heat. I just think that it may be a little foolish to bet on anybody that is not LeBron James at this point.
