Haslem. Bosh and James would all do a collective job on those 2. Even Anthony would get mins. But neither could beat Mia in a 7 game series.
I Ain't got no Worries - Lebron James
Worn out on D? you serious clark? Best defender in the world. Zach wont wear down #6.
And who's guarding James on the wing? Bosh popping 15 fters? Rio? Cole?
They dont have the horses.
No family member of Pau Gaysol will beat Lebron James. I hope its Memphis.
I think it will be a great series, it will come down whether or not memphis can score enough with their wing players..
They can put Prince on LBJ and tony allen on wade..
Prince weighs like 20 pounds, I'd like to see him in the post to defend LBJ. The other way around is much more likely.
Heat aren't losing unless something major and unforseen happens (injury). The sooner you come to grips with it, the easier it will be when LBJ inevitably hoists his second trophy.
Saying the Heat want "no part" of Memphis is laughable. They have won like 42 of 45; I don't think they are too worried about their opponent. If Miami plays as well as they should, they dominate their opponent.
LeBron is great, but he's also human. Banging down low with Z-Bo for 4 quarters could wear him out.
I told you Tony Allen will guard LeBron. First team all defense. The defensive player of the year might play a little D too. Rio and Cole? Really? Mike Conley is one of the best defensive PG's there is.
FWIW I still think the Heat would be favored in the series, but it's not a great matchup for them. The Heat play great D too and that's probably why they'd win that series. But not a lock by any means if they draw Memphis.
Prince will guard LBJ at times, but that's obviously not a great matchup for him. But the Grizzlies rotate really well so he'd have help from the two big men when LeBron goes down low
Rio and Cole are every bit the player conley is. Hell no one in the league is playing better than Cole right now.
Yeah I agree. The Knicks are totally dependant on Melo and to a lesser extent JR Smith getting hot.
i'm thinking randolph and gasol will have field days vs. miami. who will guard those two? bosh?

Haha guess we'll just see. What makes you think they can even make it?
prince = big upgrade over rudy gay. prince is a perfect playoff player. critical player with the pistons when they won. conley has improved a lot. i think they are too young for spurs
Please be Memphis. Pretty Please.
Bulls are clearly finished so who are the Heat playing in the ECF?
Prince was good like 6 years ago. Have you ever heard of people's game deteriorating?
Prince over Gay that's easily the dumbest thing I've heard you say, which is saying a lot.
Knicks are garbage.
I understand you saying this because you watch a lot more Heat games than Grizzlies games, but man this is not true at all.
Conley is a wayyyyy better defender, better passer, better all around scorer, more experienced, better at penetrating defenses. Conley isn't an all star, but he's a very good NBA point guard. Chalmers is an average starter. Cole is a good back up. No knock on either of them that's just who they are.
Rudy Gay was not a good fit in Memphis. Not a great defender, which is what their whole team is about. He's a great scorer, but he's a volume scorer. He'll have a 25 point night and that's great until you realize he took 25 shots to do it.
Now is Tayshaun Prince a better player? No way in hell. But he's a better fit in Memphis. He's frail and he's getting older but he can still play great D. And he doesn't take bad shots which take away from feeding their beasts down low.
I cannot believe a Canadian is trying to tell me how it is with basketball. What a joke.
Let me try to explain so you'll understand: gay is a better overall player I'm sure, but prince is a better role player for a championship contender
What does being Canadian have to do with anything basketball related? A Canadian invented basketball, and the best HS player since KD is also a Canadian.
That's a pretty bold opinion. Prince is garbage.
Going to be nice ending the Bulls season tonight.
Looking like Indiana will be next
