I was Rubio's biggest skeptic, but I watched him in preseason and knew he'd do well. He needs to take Luke fucking Ridenour out of the starting lineup ASAP. Barea and Rubio on the court at the same time is pretty fun to watch.
I have no clue why they are starting Ridenour. I think the T-Wolves are a playoff team. They were a pretty tough matchup for OKC last year even though we swept them. You add Rubio, Williams and JJ FUCKFACE and they are a tough out. I think they could be a 6-8 seed in the West. If not, they'll be good in the coming years if they keep it together.

The thing is, I remember those TWolves teams when it was just Garnett and a bunch of other guys. They had guys like Chauncy Billups, who was a fucking bitch and not at all a good player at the time. Then they had Anthony Peeler, Gary Trent, Joe Smith, and Rasho Nesterovic at STARTING center. Wally Sczerbiak was the best player on the team not named Kevin Garnett. It was really ugly, but Flip Saunders had them playing good basketball.

This (should be) starting lineup with Rubio, Barea, Williams, Love, and Darko is FAR more talented from top to bottom. Only difference is Kevin Garnett vs Kevin Love. Hell, even Wes Johnson off the bench is far better quality than anything those old teams had. Adelman's the kind of coach that can get these guys working together to play good basketball. That's what they've been missing from Kurt Rambis all these years.

Adelman is the reason they will be a playoff team. They have the talent and the guy doesn't lose. I see them being like the Thunder 2 years ago or Grizzlies last year. They may be the last seed but whoever draws them is going to have their hands full.

Golden State put the clamp down on Rose tonight. I think 4-17 shooting.

Talk about pre-mature.

I know it's only 2 games in, but I was thinking the same thing watching this game.

You guys are the odds on favorite, that's for sure.

Maybe OKC can knock you off, but I think that's about it.

Repost. Already heard it from the analysts on Sunday at half-time of their first game

You are basing your title on beating Dallas who obviously doesn't have their shit together and a Boston team without Pierce. I agree Miami is the favorite but your statement is idiotic. There are teams that can hang.

Norris Cole might be the best upgrade the Heat did. Its great to get a young guy and all the other trash out.

Is there a good reason to think LeBron won't choke in the NBA Finals again?

Miami may be the best team in the NBA (and I think they certainly are), but it doesn't mean a damn thing if they can't perform at the end.
