The Heat Reminds Rob Parker of the '04 Pistons

Before simply dismissing the Miami Heat and handing the Los Angeles Lakers the NBA Finals trophy, Rob Parker stops Chris Broussard to take a little closer look at this matchup. In this Super Team, lopsided competition era of the NBA, Rob thinks the Heat represent the best team built since the 2004 Pistons who upset the Kobe and Shaq led Lakers. The Heat have already had success in dispatching the Eastern Conference favorites, the Bucks, easily. They also knocked off the talent-laden Boston Celtics with supposedly the brightest young coach in the NBA in Brad Stevens. Now, they have a chance to prove this journey hasn’t been a fluke, but a destiny. Rob Parker takes Jimmy Butler and the Heat in 6 over LeBron James and the Lakers.
