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. In fact, they will and here are five reasons why LeBron James will win his third ring against the Spurs.
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. LeBron has a great supporting cast in Miami with more than enough help off of the bench to match the Spurs' firepower from the pine.
Whether is was Kawhi Leonard, Danny Green or Boris Diaw, the Spurs were able to keep Kevin Durant from going off on them with just these guys. But LeBron James is not KD, and there isn’t a single person on the Spurs roster who can contain LeBron or keep him from imposing his will.
There has been speculation as to if LeBron James will leave Miami if he realizes their championship window is closing. LeBron’s teammates know this just as well as King James himself. That said, the Heat will be not only competing for a third straight NBA title but to show LeBron there is no better place for him than South Beach.
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.
LeBron James is the best player in the world, and when he wants something on the hardwood, he will go and get it. It’s that simple. LeBron knows what a third straight ring would do for his legacy and placement with the greats of all time, and I doubt he would let a team full of players who clearly cannot contain him get in his way.
