According to LeBatard, a "high ranking Miami official" says that the Spurs don't scare them because Boston is better. Which is so absurd it hurts me. His reasoning was Garnett > Duncan, Rondo > Parker, Pierce > Manu, Allen > Spurs 3 pt shooters, Boston defense > Spurs defense. I guess if you're Miami you look at teams that way. All individual pieces. Not to mention that he's wrong about some of those comparisons anyway.
I can guarantee Pat Riley does not look at teams that way. Miami defends the pick and roll as well as anybody in the last decade so they have a great shot against San Antonio (especially if they stick Lebron on Parker as often as possible) but I think most credible basketball people know SA is the favorite. 34-4 is what it is.There are a lot of "high-ranking Miami officials" who are just related to owner Mickey Arison including his son. I bet it's one of them.
