Will you watch the NBA Finals, or have you given up considering your horse is now out of the race? I for one will be watching. If for no other reason than to watch the Heat get destroyed by OKC. I believe this will happen for several reasons. Watching the game at a bar the other night, it was evident that no one in America likes the Heat. I was amongst (probably) Cavaliers, Pistons and maybe even some Pacers fans and they were all ACTIVELY rooting for Boston, or rather against the Heat.
The Heat are everything we hate about big sports franchises with big stars. The Yankees, the Patriots, the Lakers...we love to hate the big guys. It doesn't help that Lebron games guaranteed at least 7 championships before he even stepped on the court as a Heat player. It doesn't help to have two of the most hated players in America on their team. Dwayne Wade and Lebron James. Wade at one time seemed like a pretty good guy. It is now painfully apparent that he is a punk. I don't like him. I believe that OKC's "Big Two" are more mature than the Miami's. Not to mention hungrier, more competitive and they play better team ball. From top to bottom, the Thunder are the better team. Their bench is far better than Miami's. Every part of me wants to say OKC in as little as 5, but I'm giving the Heat the benefit of the doubt and going with the Thunder in 6.
