Last week over at Grantland Bill Simmons published an article about championships with asterisks. I tend to think you can do this deconstruction almost any season- so I'm not putting an asterisk on this season no matter which teams wins. (Unless something extreme happens like the other teams suddenly choose to forfeit the playoffs to start an 'A cappella' singing group or somehow get stuck in a well or something.)
All that being said, things are breaking pretty well for Lebron and the Heat right now. Out of laziness I didn't draw all the voodoo dolls I could have- Chandler starting the series with the flu, Baron with that gruesome kneecap dislocation (thank you for all the slo-mo replays Mr. Producer!). Etc.
The Heat's next round matchup, the Pacers, are healthy at least, and I recently bought a Pacers' hat because I love underdogs and liked the design so watch out because as we all know my choice in headwear has great power on the outcome of pro basketball games. I think the Pacers are a good team with a lot of ways to matchup that when playing to their full potential can compete with any team (remember the competitiveness last year in the playoffs versus the Bulls?). So for Lebron and the Heat's sake I hope they're not making the mistake of overlooking them in their "preparations". I'm trying to talk myself into this.
As always check out the t-shirt shop or art-print store if you're interested in some Bx3 approved schwag. (Sorry voodoo dolls not yet available)
