I had Miami in 6 before the series started. I saw nothing in game 1 to change my mind. Except for it might be 5.
At one point, Jeff Van Gundy said the difference in this game is that Miami has James and Wade and Dallas doesn't. That's about the size of it.

It doesn't look good for Dallas, that's for sure.

Dallas' only hope is that A) Dirk turns into Superman AND B) Dallas' savvy vets can make the difference.

A might happen but it won't help, I don't see B happening at all.

I want the Heat to win anyway, if for no other reason than it means Kidd won't get a ring.

Why no love for Kidd? Just curious...

I'm a Knick fan. He was a Net.

Now I'll give Kidd credit, unlike Marbury he knew how to kiss media butt,
which was why he was never as villified as Marbs was when he was here. 

Though they were both malcontents in thier respective time with their metro teams.

Yeah, Scottie, Lebron is the air apparent indeed.

Well, that plus having a hall of fame career and winning the East a couple of times...

Kobe is at home wondering exactly when LeBron's career surpassed his?

I think Lebron would have to get several rings before Kobe starts breaking a sweat.

End of halftime game 5. This might be the most competitive Finals I've seen in a while.

Now that Wade is down fo the moment, let's see if Lebron steps up.
