The Miami Heat are playing in the NBA Finals for the third straight year.
This means a lot of people are excited for the Heat to get back to the NBA, and that’s good news for all of us who follow the game on a regular basis.
However, there are some things we should definitely know about the Heat’s NBA playoff chances, so let’s take a look at some of the scenarios that could unfold.
The Heat could lose LeBron James and Dion Waiters to the Pelicans The Heat lost James and Waiters, respectively, in the offseason.
If this is the case, it would be a disaster.
There’s nothing more exciting than having two great players in your lineup that you’re confident can help you win games.
The question is, would they be good enough?
If LeBron’s injury wasn’t dealt with, this would be one of the best-case scenarios for the team.
He’d be back for another season, and he’d have a full-time role, and there’s no way he’d ever get the chance to play for another team.
Waiters’ injury would probably be worse.
He’s a different type of player.
He doesn’t have the speed and athleticism to be a starter at this point in his career.
In the NBA’s most intense games, he’s usually a defensive specialist and a good rebounder, but he’s also very good at getting to the free throw line, something he’s not quite as adept at right now.
He has a lot to learn, but I’d like to see him be a big part of the offense for the Pelicans this season.
The team is loaded with young talent, and while there’s still a lot more to be learned about Dion Waiter, there’s not much that would make me think he’d be a bust.
The Pelicans are better off losing out on Anthony Davis This is one of those scenarios that is still too optimistic for the rest of us.
It could be that the Pelicans will be the favorite to win the East this year, and if so, it might not be the best way to go about things.
The way things stand right now, they’ll be one-third of the way through the season and the Heat would have to win out.
With all of the questions about the Pelicans and their rebuild, this is a situation that makes me think that they might have made the right decision for the future.
Anthony Davis would be an asset on the defensive end.
He can play both sides of the ball, and his length would allow him to play at the 4 or 5 position in the pick-and-roll, something the Heat are already used to.
He would be good on the offensive end as well.
He could help the team defend better and would give them a nice offensive weapon on offense.
He also has great athleticism and could help make the Pelicans run more efficiently.
Anthony’s injury would make it a lot harder to get a full season out of him, but it could make it even tougher for the franchise to get that full season under way.
The Raptors will win the Eastern Conference If this were to happen, the Raptors would still be in the playoffs.
They’re currently tied for second in the East with the Heat, and with just six games left, they’re still only two games behind the Heat.
They also have the second-best record in the conference, and have the chance at a wild-card spot if they can avoid the Heat and Pelicans.
If they win out, they’d be the second team in the past decade to make the playoffs with their first three wins.
In addition to winning out in the West, the team would be favored to win every game in the Conference, as well as the conference’s best record.
If the Raptors were to win a series, they would have a shot at the best record in history.
They would also be the first team in history to reach the Finals since the Lakers did it in 2000.
If Miami loses out, the Heat have a chance to make history.
With the second seed in the Eastern conference, the second best record, and an advantage in the upcoming schedule, there would be no reason for the Raptors to fall short of a championship.
The Cavaliers will win Game 7 of the Eastern Finals LeBron James is in a tough spot right now as he’s in the midst of the most dominant stretch of his career, but there’s a good chance he’ll still play for the Cavs in the final.
LeBron is still a top-10 player, but his offensive production has been falling off lately, and it would have been a lot easier to see his numbers drop if he hadn’t had the injury.
There are plenty of reasons why LeBron James might want to retire after this series, but the Cavaliers would have the most leverage if they won out in Game 7.
The Lakers win Game 6 of the
