NBA Finals Game 1: Heat Take 1-0 Series Lead

“In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.”- Albert Einstein

LeBron James will lead the Heat to a championship this season.

You heard me. I really hate to say it, but it’s true. The Miami Heat roster is too stacked compared to the Mavs. They’ve got James, Wade, AND Bosh. I’m honestly not surprised they didn’t win all 82 games of the regular season with that combo of All-Stars. Those 3 players combine for around 60 PPG, and that’s without adding in the other 2 starters and the bench players.

Teams that win Game 1 of any playoff series win the series 79% of the time. This means that 79 out of 100 teams would win the series if they win Game 1. To put it in practical terms, currently the Mavs have a 1/5 chance of winning the championship.

Although I talked about the Heat roster before, I forgot to mention that they have one of the youngest teams in the league. Compared to the Mavs, they have more stamina (they can last longer in games), quickness (agility, acceleration etc.), and energy (sort of self-explanatory). LeBron and Wade really showcased this in the 4th quarter of Game 1, when they sealed the deal against the Mavs. With the way LeBron’s playing, coupled with their stamina and youth, I wouldn’t be surprised if they SWEPT the Mavs to take the championship.

  1. Being from Kansas, I am a basketball FREAK!
    Of course, I’m old and never was good at it.
    In any case, Allen Fieldhouse is to basketball what Mecca is to Islam.
