NBA Finals 2012 – Good vs Evil

The annual NBA passion play is about to start. I’m talking, of course, about the NBA Finals. This years version has the Miami Heat reprising their role as villain and the OKC Thunder will step in as the basketball savior.

The story goes something like this: the Heat are the basketball equivalent of the Death Star, wreaking havoc throughout the NBA Universe. If they are allowed to win an NBA title all hell will break loose and their reign of terror will last forever. Everything that is good and holy is at stake.

The Miami Heat has assembled a team of mercenaries with a singular focus: bring a title home to the Evil Empire…I mean South Beach. They have stockpiled a team of supreme talent fragile egos that has been the scourge of the NBA. The OKC Thunder, on the other hand, has quietly built a championship-caliber the old fashioned way, through the draft and nurturing young talent.

Its a classic tale of good and evil, right and wrong.

Kevin Durant has to step in as hero and destroy the Heat. Sure, he is young and this is his first Finals and its not fair to put the fate of the entire basketball universe on his shoulders but that’s what makes for great drama. Luckily, he has help. Russell Westbrook and James Harden (along with the bench) will put their stamp on this series but it will be Durant who will lead the Thunder to the championship.

Make no mistake, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and the rest of the Dark Side will not go down easily. They will fight till the end. Unless LeBron has another 4th quarter disappearing act like last year this series could easily go seven games. And that would be some great drama.

I just hope that one game we can see the Thunder in their white uniforms and the Heat in their all black ones. That would let even the most casual fan know who is who.

I am looking forward to watching this drama unfold before me and I’m pulling for the good guys to win. That’s why I’m picking the Rebel Alliance…err…the OKC Thunder to win in 6 games.

May the Force be with us.
