I could see him with something close to the rebound and assist stats. I think he could give you games with that stat sheet but see him more as a 16-18, 7-10 and 2-4 guy with a steal or 2 and a block or 2 a night, very respectable numbers even all star numbers if he continues to progress on the defensive end. I do not see someone who could carry a team consistently night in and night out but he is a huge piece of a puzzle just not the biggest if you want to win a title in the next 5-6 years IMO
I'm tempted to take you up on that bet as long as you provide an out for injuries.

I believe he averaged over 6 rpg this year on limited minutes. He's going to be a damn good player. His shot chart and efficiency shooting the ball is near what Durant is and Durant is easily the best scorer in the league. Very few players can use the entire floor to score. It's really not a question of if he can score 20, it's just if he wants to and if Pop wants/lets him.

Only Parker averaged more minutes this year than Leonard on the Spurs and just barely, 29:22 to 29:07, yet Leonard was 3rd in scoring, you are right he did shoot 52%. Serge Ibaka shot 53% and a little over 3 more minutes a game, do you think he could average 20 a night if given the chance?. No one questioned if he could score 20, could he score it night in and night out and I do not think he has the mentality, being a scorer is not a switch you turn on and off.

i assume the media is trying to drive home a narrative of lance made lebron mad and thats why the pacers got blown out, i dont buy it. pacers lost in the fashion they did beyond their flaws because they lacked the desire and heart miami has, i think lance may have been the only guy on their team ready to compete on that level in game 6.

the perceived weaknesses of miami are at pg and center, problem is who in the playoffs are really capable of exploiting them in a consistent fashion on both ends of the floor. that and ever since they picked up norris cole that 2nd year and chris andersen the heat have held their own on both ends of the floor at those positions.
I agree, Stephenson seem to be the only one who was not scared and ready to knock the champs off the top of the mountain, anyway possible! I do not think the Heat struggle at PG just due to the ability of both Wade and James to handle the ball. I do think if you stick to your guns, pack the lane, make them hit jumpers and out rebound them they do not have a real back to the basket scorer who can bang other than Haslem.

See if LeBron can hush the doubters, gotta love this game! Duncan, Parker, and Ginobili chasing history with Wade and Bosh chasing the basketball immortality of a 3 peat and James chasing the GOAT. Throw in the old wise stubborn coach who always did it his way and could care less what anyone thought against the young Riley Protégé and anything could happen. My gut tells me the Heat in 6 as James imposes his will on the series early and often, the Spurs feel father time creeping up on them and lose steam in Miami after the Heat steal game one in San Antone, sweep the next two at home, the Spurs find a way to get a win at home only to feel the pain in Miami.

Default Re: 2014 NBA PLAYOFFS!!!!!

I am pulling for the Heat but I think the Spurs win the series in 6 or 7. Spurs just seemed pissed and highly motivated after what happened last year.

LeBron is going to have to be super aggressive if the Heat are going to win. Because the Spurs will do the same thing they did last year cram the lane and force him and Wade to hit jumpers. You know Bosh will jack em up. Some nights LeBron has the jumper and the killer instinct some nights not. That is the big storyline for me this series along with the health of Parker.

Compared to last year I don't think Miami is better than they were. You can make the argument they are bc Wade is healthier this year. I just believe the Spurs depth and 3 point shooting are going to be too much for the Heat this year. They Spurs are even better this year. Leonard is better, diaw and ginobili are playing great, and you know Green will be hitting from 3.

The Spurs perimeter shooting is going to cause problems .. I'd watch for some guy like Bonner, Mills, or Bellineli to get hot. Bonner could be lethal.

I'm not a lebron hater. He's the best player on the planet and its not close.

That being said, he's going up against the best coach on the planet and I'm sure that pop has some stuff drawn up just for this series.

Its going to come down to can the collectiveness of the spurs overcome lebron. If they can then the heat will lose in six or seven. If not then it'll be a game of adjustments. And then what happens?

My prediction is the spurs in six. They were 30 seconds away from doing it last year. This year they win and pop and Timmy ride off into the sunset

Yep that's what I said a post above. Spurs depth and 3 point shooting will be the difference. Green will be the main one again this series not Bonner. But he will chip in along with Diaw, Leonard, and benelli. They have 5 or 6 guys that get decent minutes that shoot great.

Spurs in 7. Its going to be a great series. I think the Spurs can survive an injury to a key player better than Miami. Kawhi Leonard will emerge a star but Timmy will get Finals MVP.

This AC issue is nuts.

LeBron's freak body is hurting him. The lack of fat makes him have more issues with cramping.

It will go from just what people are used to seeing to full body cramps and have to go to the ER. I'm sure the LeBron haters will go off on him but it's bogus to call him out for such an unprecedented event.

Spurs 1 Heat 0

Good start and I know the best player was out but I will take the victory anyway they come.

Leonard's foul trouble kept him out most of the game but Diaw played some pretty good defense on James to make up for it and then Green got going when it counted the most.
