Everyone in the country that watches basketball is talking about the newest sensation, New York point guard, Jeremy Lin. The Knicks have flourished behind Lin and won six straight. The Spurs also have a star point guard in Tony Parker, and they have won nine in a row. Despite the fan accolades, neither one of these teams can beat the Heat.
If Miami and New York were to meet in the playoff’s, DWade would handcuff Lin, while LeBron would shut down Carmelo Anthony. Everyone talks about how good Wade and James are offensively, but they forget that they are the best defensive duo since Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen. This is a problem that the Knicks, Spurs, and even the Lakers don’t have an answer for.
The Miami Heat just did the impossible. The team won all three of it’s back-to-back-to-back road games. They are the only team to do it this year, and in fact the only team to accomplish the feat in 33 years. Miami is good, really good. Miami is a little bit under the radar this year, especially since the Lin explosion. That’s fine with everyone in South Florida, except Knick fans.
New York faithful are never quiet, but they are being very boisterous when it comes to “Super Lintendo”. That’s fine, the Knick’s have been irrelavent for a long time, at least now they actually have something to talk about. The bad news for New York, and San Antonio too, who has won nine straight, is that neither team can take down Miami. DWade and Bron are just too strong. That doesn’t even take into effect player’s like Chris Bosh, Mario Chalmers, Mike Miller, and Udonis Haslem. In a surprising development, Miami might be the deepest team in the league. Congratulations Pat Riley, you have done well.
