Beat the Heat!

We all know that the road to the Finals does and will most likely always go through the Miami Heat. So, I do not want to see the Celtics construct a team that will just lose to the Miami Heat in the ECF every year like the Pacers do now. Speaking of the Pacers lets look how the continue to compete with the Heat every year.

Although he disappeared in the first two rounds, Roy Hibbert was the key to the Pacers success. With Bosh as the center, Hibbert, who was stronger and taller than Chris, should have dominated the paint, which he did do on defense. If Paul George makes a few threes in Game six, the Pacers probably lose again to the Heat in seven, but at least went seven twice in a row with the best team in the NBA. Well, if a defensive center is a key piece to beating the defending champs, I say the Celtics go out and get Omer Asik. I know he is expensive and he may not want to resign but he is an elite defender who is just over shadowed by Dwight Howard in Houston. He can finish close to the basket a lot better than Kendrick Perkins could in 2008. Kendrick Perkins, Roy Hibberts, and Omer Asiks are key pieces to bringing down the King, the Miami Heat.

Another key piece is PF. David West, I applaud you for everything you do for the Pacers. Leadership, scoring and defense is what I see when I look at David West. He is automatic from 18 ft. and really helps space the floor on offense. He can also post up Miami Heat players since their only PF is playing the Center position (Bosh). Well, the David West I see the Celtics getting, is obviously Kevin Love. I don't need to tell you how good he is (second team All-NBA). Love can bully Shane Battier or whoever is the Heat's starting Power Forward is.

Obviously, more would be needed to beat the Heat like an elite SF (Carmelo?, trade up and get Jabari?), but from all the rumors I read the Celtics are interested in these pieces which is a good sign. Look, the San Antonio Spurs were 10 seconds away from beating this so-called powerhouse of a team, until a bald-headed, three-point specialist Celtic Nation doesn't speak about anymore hit a legendary three because Tim Duncan and Tony Parker were amazing and if Danny Green did not go ice-cold, LeBron's legacy would not be as glorified as it is now. Hopefully, in a year when I'm writing another blog post, I'll be saying the Celtics won banner 18 because Kevin Love and Rajon Rondo were beyond amazing and Omer Asik had his way inside.

Well until then, in Danny we trust!
