The Heat will win vs. The World

Look, I hate LeBron James and Dwyane Wade and the rest of the Miami Heat as much as the next guy, but after 48 hours of LeBron bashing am I the only one who honestly believes the Heat will win Games 6 and 7 and the NBA championship?

The Heat have been criticized and doubted from Day One and they eventually have responded by winning. They got off to such a tenuous start that Lakers coach Phil Jackson – whose ego is on par with the King and DWade – suggested that Miami ought to fire its coach Erik Spoelstra. Last I looked Jackson’s team got swept out of these playoffs and he disappeared.

Each time the Heat and its Big Three have had their backs to the wall this season, they have met the challenge. They got over on the Boston Celtics, their playoff nemesis. They beat down a Chicago Bulls team that dominated them during the regular season. Then why don’t more people think the more athletic and now more motivated Heat will be energized by their home crowd in Miami and run past the Mavericks?

The sense, however, is that the coughing James, Wade and the Heat will choke in the end.

I hope they do. I wouldn’t be surprised if they don’t.
