    Indiana is the better team and they do match up well. When Hibbert is off, George is on.

    Lebron has no help whatsoever, it's really sad. These guys have to figure out a way to match up and score a few points, they can't expect him to carry the team every game. Bosch 5 points really? Haslem 0

    While I would agree "clutchness" isn't really all the important, it does exist. This just sounds like an excuse article

    I think Mike Miller should get more minutes in game 7. He has always been consistent from beyond the arc.

    Bosh needs to stop settling for mid range jumpers. Try to get in the paint and force the issue for Hibbert.

    Wade needs to play his game. If he tries to force it the Heat will lose. Just finish when you get opportunities.

    Can't disagree with any of that; Wade is obviously injured and he's too timid. Missing layup after layup is inexcusable. He and Bosch combined made 4 of their 19 shots!

    If you're going to play, give it your all. As Ray Lewis said 'You can rest later'

    Are some of you serious?

    LeBron doesn't have defining moments? How about when he scored the last 23 points for the CAVS in Game 5 against the Pistons @ The Palace when he was only 22? With ZERO help, while the Pistons had a nice squad who only two years earlier won a championship. That preppeled him to his first NBA Finals and without him on the team the CAVS would have finished last that year.

    Or in 2011 when he scored the last 11 points to close out Boston in Game 5. And then SHUT DOWN the MVP Derrick Rose 4-1 in the Eastern Confrence Finals.

    Or when he won his 3rd MVP trophy in 4 years?

    And he carries the Heat. They have NO ONE consistent behind the big 3 and Wade and Bosh can be very irrelevant at times.

    LeBron can post you up, drive you to the rack, bang a shot in your eye, dunk on you, fade away on you. He's the ultimate basketball player and the greatest to ever play. He is unstoppable.

    Talent wise Lebron may already be the best. Legacy wise he's top 10. In terms of being a complete player, only Magic Johnson is even in the conversation in my book.

    agreed. I always throw Magic and The Big O as two of the best players of all time. Hard to compare eras regardless but theyre more complete players than a Kobe or even Jordan, imo. Their legacies however are less. Seems theres 2 debates in one whenever talking about "the best".

    ESPN threw up another stat on the ticker that LBJ has the highest scorign average in games 7s... of all time. something like 34 pts. Id say that should be included in the "clutch" conversation.

    Magic and Jordan are the greatest to ever play...it's not even close.

    The fact that there's even a conversation putting Lebron there would signal it is in fact close, no matter if you think so or not

    Re: NBA playoffs

    There does seem to be an obsession with comparing Lebron to past players. People will argue he is or he isn't. I'm just gonna enjoy the game tonight

    I agree and this should be a hell of a game.

    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    I hope the Heat win for no other reason than I don't want to hear 6 months of are the Heat over, is Lebron over rated, is Wade no longer a great player etc. etc.

    Already a lot of talk about what they Heat will do with the roster if they don't win. And Lebron could score 80 but if they lose he'll get the critics.

    Gotta love a game 7 - one team moves to the championship series, one team is left to second guess
