LeBron James Would Improve More This Offseason If the Miami Heat Lose Game 5

Steve Mitchell- USA TODAY Sports

Almost everyone predicted that this series featuring the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs would go to seven games, and now the possibility that it could one go five is insanely real.

I want this to be over quick and easy.

That might surprise some basketball fans out there, and especially the ones who know that I love nothing more than for a playoff series to go seven games.

Here is why I want the Heat to lose on Sunday: it would humble LeBron James and spark Pat Riley to action.

“The Chosen One” is not going to leave Miami, and so all those conspiracy theorists can feel free to move on to another article. But another NBA Finals’ loss at the hands of the Spurs would surely force the four time MVP to figure some things out. As for team executive Riley? This offseason is going to be chess and not checkers. It has been rumored that the Heat are going to make a run at Carmelo Anthony, but I question whether that is a realistic opportunity. In any case, I would expect the man who coached Showtime to shake up his roster in this offseason.

If the Heat push this to Game 7 it might give them false hope, and I just want James and company to make this thing better than it ever was. To be even more real about it, who is to say that Tim Duncan won’t come back and put the Spurs back in this position next season? If Kawhi Leonard dreams it, then he can do it.

.. lol, in past years chat here on our State Of Origin series .. http://www.smh.com.au/rugby-league/league-news/south-sydney-fullback-greg-inglis-injury-casts-doubt-over-state-of-origin-game-two-selection-20140607-zs0v5.html .. often used to drift to .. oh, yeah, powers that be want the winner not to be known until the final game (here it's a set 3 games), there were always people suggesting a fix was in .. if/when Spurs win today that would disappoint some .. :)

hi, LA19, lol, talk about Vegas types, hope the pennies are flipping the right way for you these days .. the article above makes sense to me ..
