Miami HEAT to be Knicks’ Tormenter?
That is the fact of the NBA season that just ended as much as the fact of what (LeBron) James and (Dwyane) Wade and (Chris) Bosh and their supporting cast did to Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, the beatdown they gave them in Game 5. We always love a Big Team in sports. That is what the Heat just became front of our eyes, all the way through what they did to the Thunder Thursday night.
Maybe the Knicks can take consolation in this fact: That they played the same five-game series against the Heat in the first round of the playoffs that the Thunder played against them in the Finals.
But it doesn’t change the reality of the Knicks’ situation, that they are in the same conference as No. 6 of the Heat, the best player in their sport, one of the best of all time in basketball. It does not change that Chris Bosh, who was a star in Toronto before he got to Miami, is perfectly content to be a role player and side man to James and Wade.
