That was more in response to Ehh's prediction of a 4-1 Miami Series win.

When you have "experts" saying heat in 5?

C'mon man. Stephen A and Skip Bayless are far from experts IMHO an we have people (not on OS with an exception of a few) saying the pacers don't stand a chance.


Ehhh maybe, but it depends on the day. Top five team is kinda strong.

Sounds literally exactly like the Mavs in 2011. I'm not calling y'all out on anything, I'm just seeing a similarity that's all.

This series comes down to Miami shooters. If they are hitting shots. Watch out. If they are not. It will give Pacers more chances to win this series.

What this back and forth with Vogel and LeBron now lol? Why even gave them anything to talk about?

Also only difference I see is that Bosh is playing this year.
come on jeebs, you have got to give some credit to Andersen..he rebounds, plays hard, alters a lot of shots, is nice in p'n'r

That is by far my most favorite thing about this series. Both teams play a inside-outside type of basketball. The small vs big match ups. Everyone should know that last year. Bosh's injury is what caused the Heat to play small. And the rest is history. A lot of teams have tired the small ball play. But no one has LeBron James.

I know people expect the pacers to go rebound crazy. But I wouldn't be shocked if the Heat keep it close even though Pacers have a clear advantage. At this stage of the game the Heat know that's the Pacer strength.

I think its going to really similar looking to the heat/bulls series. A grind, lots of fouls. I fully expect indy to push this to the limit. Its conducive to their style of play. I wonder if there will be any miami blowouts...

I've already been labeled the ultimate Pacer-***** by the Pacer guys on OS so I figured I might as well live up to it.
