5 Reasons Why The 2013 NBA Finals Are Going To Be The Best NBA Finals In Years

Submitted by on June 4, 2013 – 11:41 amOne Comment

In case you missed it last night, LeBron James and the Miami Heat crushed the Indiana Pacers in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals to advance to the 2013 NBA Finals. Beginning on Thursday night, the Heat will do battle with the San Antonio Spurs, who closed out the Western Conference Finals last week by sweeping the Memphis Grizzlies. And that bodes well for fans of the NBA. In fact, it bodes very well for them. The Heat/Spurs matchup has the potential to be one of the best NBA Finals matchups in years. Why? Well, to help spell it out, we’ve come up with a list of five reasons why the 2013 NBA Finals are going to be the best NBA Finals in years. Check them out below.

Reason #1: The LeBron vs. Tim Duncan revenge factor will play a role in the series.

Back in 2007, LeBron James led the Cleveland Cavaliers to the NBA Finals and squared off against Tim Duncan & Co. in the series. It didn’t turn out to be much of a series, though, as the Spurs swept the Cavs in four games to win the title. That will definitely play a role in the 2013 NBA Finals. That series will be on LeBron’s mind and should force him to play harder than ever before.

Reason #2: The Spurs have just as much talent on their roster as the Heat do.

The Heat haven’t exactly walked through the first three rounds of the 2013 NBA Playoffs. Sure, they swept the Milwaukee Bucks. But both the Chicago Bulls and the Pacers tested them. That said, neither of those teams has as much talent or experience as the Spurs do. The Spurs are talented and they play the game of basketball the right way. They also have a deep bench and lots of top-notch role players. So they’ll be able to matchup against the Heat really well.

Reason #3: The floor will be filled with well-known talent on every single possession.

From LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh on the Heat to Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Manu Ginobili on the Spurs, both of these teams are loaded. They also feature a lot of familiar faces that fans will be able to identify immediately. Neither team needs any introduction. And that means that, from the first tipoff in Game 1, we will all be on the edge of our seats watching them do battle.

Reason #4: The winner of the series will go down in history.

The Heat and Spurs are literally fighting for a place in the NBA history books. If the Spurs win, the Tim Duncan era will go down as one of the greatest eras in NBA history. If the Heat win, they will be back-to-back NBA champions and will have a real chance to three-peat next season. But regardless of who wins, someone will go down in history. It’ll be really interesting to see who it is.

Reason #5: The Heat will keep everyone talking about the NBA Finals.

As long as the “Big 3″ are the “Big 3,” the Heat are going to be the most polarizing team in the NBA. Some people love them; some people hate them. But either way, they draw in fans and make them care about the outcome of games. So as long as they’re in the NBA Finals, it’s going to be a great series. It sure beats watching the Spurs and Pacers do battle, right?
