This is the kind of series I thought it was going to be. I thought the Pacers would punch the Heat in the mouth and bloody them up a little bit in the beginning, but that the Heat would recover and gradually retake control. That's what appears to be happening.

I said yesterday that I didn't think their Game 2 victory at Miami was that convincing which is why I didn't believe they can win another game in Miami.

I would agree that Jordan's '91-93 Bulls teams are the next weakest when compared to LeBron's Cavs, but Pippen could take over a game, and he was an outstanding defender - MJ's equal in that regard. And the Bulls from 96-98 were a great team, with a more solid cast of players, even if Rodman was a wee bit bizarre.
I think you misunderstood what I said. I was comparing the fact that both Jordan and Lebron joined poor rosters in 1984 and 2003. I'm not comparing Jordan's championship rosters to what Lebron had in Cleveland. I'm saying both the Bulls and the Cavs were horrible franchises when Jordan and Lebron joined them as rookies. Which makes Jordan winning 2 rings in 100 playoff games more impressive to me that Bird and Magic winning 2-3 rings in 100 playoff games, because those guys joined much better teams in 1979 than what Jordan joined in 1984. Because of that, both Bird and Magic were placed in winning situations. Jordan's Bulls, by contrast, had to be built to a championship-level over several seasons.

That's probably because Pop scares them-lol He is not the most pleasant looking coach in the NBA and I believe that they want to see him snap so they try to avoid playing stupid.

I would hate to see what Pop does to his team when they lose.

Pops and VERY IMPORTANTLY the organization backing him is 1st class.

They aren't going to but in on a trade (KNicks) or blame him when their bad trades fail (Orlando).

First coach in about 2 decades to repeat as coach of the year.
