Everybody says the same thing about the Miami-San Antonio series.
They respect the Spurs. They love Duncan's versatility and Tony Parker's ability to run the team. Manu Ginobili is smart and effective and always where he's supposed to be. The bench is deep and the coaching is fantastic.
Then they pick Miami to win.
I wish I could disagree. But I can't pick against LeBron and the fellows. I think Dwayne Wade or Chris Bosh will have good games and one of them will have a good series. I think Ray Allen or Shane Battier or Mike Miller will get hot outside.
As good as LeBron has been in the playoffs, I think he'll be better.
This is his time. He'll continue to work outside, inside, play superb defense and rebound, and he'll get teammates the ball where they want it when they want it.
Both teams are selfless.
If kids are looking for players or teams to model their games after, this is a fine place to start.
Miami in six.
