Who do you think will represent the Eastern Conference in the Finals? I'll go with a surprise pick and take Boston.

Barring major injury, the Heat. Boston can put up a decent fight though.

The Heats big 3 can miss 20% of the games and still be 1st seed in the East

I said in another thread that I believe Miami falters this season. I'm not sure who knocks them off but Miami won't make the finals. Going for a repeat and third finals in three years, it's going to be tough.

We did it, and I'm sure hell that Miami has a good chance too of going three in a row. They're the defending champs and have improved even more this year. No team in the East has a chance to match up with Miami. Heck, even the Celtics the 2nd best team in the East will succumb again like last year to the Heat, rather this time in 4-5 games.

It'll be the Celtics IMO. I don't why people are selling Boston short. You look at last season and they pushed Miami to the brink of elimination and they got better significantly by adding Jason Terry and Courtney Lee. I think the key is just to stay healthy. If they can do that I see them meeting us in the Finals.

Agree I just don't even see Miami taking opponents seriously in the east. The east is just too weak, Boston is the 2nd best team and they are plagued with injuries waiting to happen. If they are going to make it competitive for the HEat in the ECF KG and Paul will have to put up solid numbers in that series.

I'm not saying there's absolutely no chance they'll make it again, I'm saying I believe they won't though.

We did it, that's great. We are also the only team since the Bulls to actually repeat as NBA champions and also make the finals three straight seasons.

It's difficult to do which is why outside of the Lakers, it hasnt been done since the 90's.

I simply laugh at how much you are scared of the Heat. They are a fantastic team no doubt, but every team can be beat. They have their weaknesses that can be exploited, which is again their lack of size.

They can very well pull it off. But three straight NBA finals, with Lebron and Bosh dealing with the target on their back as defending champs for the first time in their career, it's not going to be easy.
