I’m not saying that I think this will happen.
But remember last year’s NBA Finals? A dominating, heavily favored Western Conference team led by a versatile big man and a speedy guard easily wins the first two games and there is much talk of a sweep.
Then the other team’s single dominant player takes over for four straight games and “wills” (read: gets ridiculous preferential treatment by the refs) his team to a championship.
Cleveland isn’t quite as talented as Miami was last year — at least Wade got “some” support — but the similarities are striking.
