Wait what? They're missing a consistent third scorer? I get the "a guy that can make plays for others part" but the consistent third scorer part...I don't get this. Are you saying they're missing a third best player on the team that can consistently score and make plays for others? If so then I definitely agree with you. Otherwise this just makes no sense.

Rondo now? No. Rondo in 2008? Easily.

No. I don't think anyone in this thread that isn't insanely rich would put $100 down on the Cavaliers winning the title if it meant 1,000,000 to 1 odds.

Would I be surprised if the Grizzlies, Spurs, Celtics or Clippers won it all? Yes. Would it of been the most shocked I ever was a sports fan? Not even in the top 5. Hell people were more shocked when the Pistons won it in 04 even after they made it to the finals!

Anyone can look good in October.

Let's see what happens in April next year to see if they can finally get a little deeper in the playoffs.
Where? Cite sources.

We've barely been on SportsCenter even after back-to-back blowout wins over the two 2012 NBA Finalists.

We have like seven national TV games on ESPN or TNT this regular season, more than in past years.

There are two Grizzlies fans on this board, and we're not all that vocal.

Re: The Grizzlies could win it all...

There are not 8 teams that could win it all. There are really not 5 teams that could win it all. Outside of that group I mentioned, and fine I'll concede the Clippers, no one else will be in the finals.

Lest we forget this is LeBron's league now so it's not going to stray far from him...there are definitely not 7 teams that could beat them 4 out of 7.

I'll pull a Rawse/Carlos Boozer:

Barring a significant (season ending/hampering) injury to one of the Miami big 3, if the finals have any team that's not

Miami, Either LA team, Memphis or OKC I will leave the site for a year.

I know I won't be holding you accountable for this. I regret helping run HB off the site.

Re: The Grizzlies could win it all...

Miami is a lock as far as the east goes, but the west is harder to gauge. I could see the Lakers, Thunder, or Grizz in the finals.

Still not sold on the Clippers.

Still not sold on the Knicks. I just feel like they're going to come back to earth sooner or later.

OK give me some reasons why you realistically think the Spurs, Knicks, Pacers...umm...whoever else could be in the finals over the teams I mentioned besides injuries
