Anthony and Jones dont even play. Bosh doesnt play like a star and IMO Splitter has shown he can compete and play with Bosh any day of the week.
I think this matchup is a GREAT finals matchup and dont see anyone as an underdog. Maybe as far bandwagon fans go, but then you would have to count all the people who hate Lebron and are rooting against the Heat for that reason alone.
The way I see it. Lebron and Wade vs Duncan and Parker is a wash as far as production goes. Then id say Ginobili, Danny Green and Gary Neal give you about the same as Chalmers, Cole, Miller/Battier. And of these last 7 that I just mentioned a few from both teams are inconsistent
So again..In the end what im trying to say is this is a great matchup for the NBA.
Full disclosure: I'd love for this series to go 7, with all remaining games going to overtime. Now that the Pacers have been eliminated,I really don't have an emotional investment in it at all.
It's a shame that Wade isn't 100 per cent.
