Dwyane Wade Considers Heat/Celtics Matchup ‘Inevitable’

As far as Dwyane Wade is concerned, Boston and Miami were always on a collision course. And now, the inevitable is here, at last. From the AP: “In 2010, Boston ousted Dwyane Wade in the first round and LeBron James in the second round. A year later, Wade and James were teammates and turned the tables, sending the Celtics into the offseason. Here comes the tiebreaker. Celtics-Heat, one more time — with a berth in the NBA finals as the reward. For the fifth time in seven years, it’ll be Boston or Miami winning the Eastern Conference championship. Game 1 of that title series is Monday night in Miami, with the Heat saying it almost seemed predestined that they would be seeing the Celtics again, and Boston’s perspective being that the team in green is exactly where it expected to be as well. ‘Inevitable. It’s the matchup the game of basketball wants,’ Wade said Sunday afternoon. ‘Obviously, with the Chicago Bulls being out, this is the biggest matchup the Eastern Conference can have. So we accept the challenge and we look forward to the series.’ Added Heat coach Erik Spoelstra: ‘Was there any doubt that it’d be us and Boston?’”

    hm… to be honest, I never considered the bulls to be much of a threat. they would be in the west, however in the east, the cHeat and the jurassic park gang are too deep and experienced to let the new kids hang around for too long. the celtics surprised everyone with a pretty reliable (in todays measures, at least) cast of supporting actors such as brandon bass, keyon dooling and above all a-brad. Plus… their maniacal, sometimes disruptingly remote rain man on qb (that #9 n****, rondo). The cHeat have wade, the matured mario chalmers, the surprising norris cole and, *sigh*, the best player in the world (no, not the boshtrich. dig in, CB1). ITS FINALS TIME!
