Picking the Heat to cover the spread (-6) in this one for obvious reasons, but mainly because of how beat up the Nets are…. and old. Sorry KG, but had to go there; it might be time to retire to Malibu, and though that pains me to write it is also painful to watch “the Kid” at this point try to create something out of nothing. The truth is not always fun folks, but just try to tall it like we see it here at Rant Sports.
The news for the Nets in the early season has not been so great, and it this point it would be a surprise me if they made the playoffs. The Heat, on the other hand, appear to be on their way to a possible three-peat, although definitely not overlooking any of the quality play out West. Ultimately, think the Heat may end up losing in the Finals just out of fatigue, but that is just an early gut feeling and reserve the right to reverse that. Two more previews coming at you today, and then will hit you with a couple Rant Sports Prep as well. Thanks as always for reading, and much thanks for all the follows on twitter. Watching that in the last couple months has been humbling to say the least. Power to the people.
