But if he's anything less than that I just don't see it happening. Their size in the frontcourt is their only real advantage, so if Hibbert can't exploit it then that's the series.

    The Stephenson/Wade angle makes me nervous. I don't worry about a fight, but I do worry about Wade antagonizing Stephenson into doing something stupid at the worst possible time.

    It'll be a good series, but put it this way: The Pacers need a lot more things to go right to win it than the Heat do to win it. And Game 1 is rarely a must win in a series, but I think this time around it is. The Pacers went hard all season trying to lock down the #1 seed and home court if it came down to them and Miami again. Now here they are, and if they give it away in Game 1 with a home loss then not only have they lost the game but they've also given Miami a psychological advantage.
    I agree that Hibbert is probably the biggest key to the series, if he doesn't play well Miami wins pretty easily. But the Pacers size not just in the froutcourt but all around will force Miami to play differently than it would like. There's no place for Miami to hide a second small guard or one of their soft forwards, Lance and West are super physical. Another key is going to be which team can get more from their bench, I expect Miami to try to go small as soon as Indy goes to the bench to replace anyone besides Hill.

    I'm wondering if Scott Brooks is causing these injuries to buy himself more years. Or is it the curse of Seattle.

    If the Bulls get Rodney Hood in the draft, that would be AWESOME!

    Kane to the Clippers. That would be a great fit for him.

    Yeah, I think at this point it's pretty certain the Spurs will make it to the finals. Since the Heat will probably win (though with a lesser chance than the Spurs), it looks the Finals will be a repeat. Which is not a bad thing.

    Not a fan of either of those first rounders for Chicago. Hope we can get Napier or stauskas.

    Jackson back with ABC will do ECF and Nba Finals. He had great chemistry with Breen and Van Gundy. Can't wait for his first "hand down man down" reference.

    Hood would be alright. If Stauskas, McDermott, or Young dropped to us.. sweet baby Jesus.
    Think I would also be cool with PJ Hairston or another big.

    God, this team makes zero sense. Two weeks ago they couldn't get out of their own way and Frank Vogel was on the verge of losing his job. Today they can't miss from outside and they look like a legit contender. If there's been a more schizophrenic team in recent NBA history I can't think of it.

    Indiana can't afford to be bipolar this series. They need to give their best effort every night.

    Hope some of you heat fans are buckled up in that bandwagon, it's going to be a bumpy ride.
