As the NBA Finals get underway between the Mavs and the Heat I look foward to some great matchups. I would like to breakdown each matchup, and give an edge to either team.
PG- Mike Bibby (Heat) vs. Jason Kidd (Mavs) -Bibby has less pressure on him because he is in the shadow of the other Super Stars on his team. All Bibby has to do is take care of the ball. Jason Kidd is expected to play a bigger role in the Mavs lineup.
EDGE- HEAT- MIKE BIBBY
SG- Dwayne Wade (Heat) vs. DeShawn Stevenson/ Jason Terry (Mavs) - Dwayne Wade is a SUPER STAR. DeShawn is a nobody who relies on his jump shot too often. Jason Terry just sits around the 3 poin arc waiting for the ball to take a 3 pointer. Wade can shoot, rebound, defend, and get to the rim at will.
EDGE- HEAT- DWAYNE WADE
SF- LeBron James (Heat) vs. Shawn Marion (Mavs) - LeBron is the best player in this series. He can knock down crucial shots. Shawn Marion is a descent player, but he plays the role of the "background singer". LeBron will wear them down.
EDGE- HEAT- LEBRON JAMES
PF- Chris Bosh (Heat) vs. Dirk Nowitzki (Mavs)- This is the best matchup of the series. Dirk is a pure shooter, while Bosh like to post you up inside. Dirks shot is just to pretty.
EDGE- MAVS- DIRK NOWITZKI
C- Joel Anthony (Heat) vs. Tyson Chandler (Mavs)- Joel Antony is just a fill in starter. The Heat are very weak in the Center position. Tyson Chandler is a BEAST.
EDGE- MAVS- TYSON CHANDLER
Overall in the series I really like Miami's "Big 3" to get their first ring together. I see The Heat winning this series in 7.
