Take the Poll

How will the NBA finals play out?
Heat in 4 or 5 games
Spurs in 4 or 5 games
Heat in 6 or 7 games
Spurs in 6 or 7 games
This means that it could turn into a coaching battle where the team hat makes the last great adjustment wins the series.  And even that doesn't give either team a clear advantage.  Spo may not get his team motivated 100% of the time, but the guy knows how to take advantage of matchups and his basketball creativity is among the best.

If Miami can force a fast-paced game and the role players play well, Miami wins hands down.   But that has always been the case for the Heat; they're the most talented team with the highest ceiling.  The task for San Antonio is to disrupt Miami's flow and we've seen recently that it's possible if you control the pace and stay confident, two things a Greg Popovitch team certainly can do.

I apologize for not being able to provide a concrete prediction, but these two teams just don't allow for that.  I can confidently predict that it will be part chess game and part roller coaster.  We'll see ball movement, a million pick and roles, finger rolls from the Spurs and some monster dunks from the Heat.

This is the passing of the torch from the past to the current crop of outstanding talent in the NBA.  The experience is what got the Spurs to this point.. The Heat are built to compete very well against that type of team. The Spurs won;t win but the Heat may lose. The west turned out not to be really as strong in the playoffs as was expected. Injuries, playoff inexperience is part of the undoing to the other 7 teams in the West. It will be interesting to see if the James led team can close the circle for the newbies in the NBA...
