My original prediction going into the NBA Finals was the Miami Heat winning the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy in 6 games. With San Antonio up 3-1 in the series, I’m obviously wrong. When the Spurs went into Miami and drubbed the Heat in game 3, I almost bet money that the Heat would return the favor in game 4. Wrong again, as the Spurs simply pasted the Heat for a second consecutive game. So far in the series, Dwyane Wade is the one looking closer to retirement than Tim Duncan. Do the Miami Heat have it in them to beat the Spurs in San Antonio to force a game 6?

One can only assume if the Heat lose the series in five that the Carmelo Anthony rumors will intensify. Meanwhile, my hope that a Spurs win would translate into a Tim Duncan retirement took a hit today with the following tweet:
“If I feel like I’m effective, if I feel like I can contribute, I’ll continue to play.” – Tim Duncan on his future.

My prediction for Sunday night’s game 5, huddle around your TV (or go to your favorite watering hole) because Sunday will be the last NBA game of the 2013-14 season.
