The Miami Heat are trying to make history and etch their name into the short list of dynasties that have been able to celebrate a three-peat. With one of the greatest shooting guards in NBA history in Dwyane Wade and the best player in the world, LeBron James, the Heat undoubtedly have the talent to do so.

The San Antonio Spurs nearly went to seven games with Oklahoma City Thunder, who outside of their big three and Reggie Jackson saw almost no help from their supporting cast.

Last season, Dwyane Wade was far from completely healthy, but he still managed to do what he needed to ensure Miami repeated as NBA Champions. Wade is now much healthier and his play has benefited as a result. There’s no way the Spurs can contain both LeBron and a healthy Wade.
