The 2nd and 3rd best teams in the league square off today, Miami and Miami lite. Two BaB hates collide as Lebron and Westbrook square off in a after-dunk posing, crowd-stare down face off that will make JbJ blow his top.
Expect to hear how this is a Finals Preview 3 or 4 thousand times as LBJ and Durant square off in a battle of top 2 MVP candidates. In a lot of ways the teams are mirror image of each other, both rely on a lot of 1 of 1 play from their 2 stars, both have under-appreciated 3rd scorers, both have coaches that have been questioned. OKC is at home and I'm rooting for them to win, but I have a feeling Lebron overwhelms them. Miami's D is too good to lose to a team that is so simple offensively.
Before that UNC ruins my bracket v. Kansas. I have to be the biggest non-UNC fan hurt by the Brandon Marshall injury. His injury kills my bracket. Oh well, a lot of NBA talent facing off, Thomas Robinson being the best guy in my estimation, Barnes being the most overrated. Barkley isn't sure Charlotte could be Kentucky and I agree. Should have picked them. A lot more NBA action I'm sure, but only one game that counts - OKC v. Miami.
