Even fans of the great teams often played the “what if” game, but one Miami Heat fan’s recent opinion of the 2014 NBA Finals against the San Antonio Spurs went a bit too far.
Miami’s “Hitles” era of basketball almost tripled appearances for LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh. Fortunately for the league and the people of the Alamo City, Tim Duncan and his cohorts were able to stop their run for good.
Not only did Tottenham avenge their devastating 2013 NBA Finals loss, but they did so in a dramatic fashion. Enduring a one-shot sting for a whole year, the whole team played like men, and the result was a historic defeat.
The unbalanced nature of the batting was so severe that most Heat fans had to hand it over to Spurs after their fifth match mercilessly ended on 15 June 2014. However, there will always be those people who don’t really have the power. The reasoning behind their opinions.
Asked about a moment he’d like to change in his team’s history, he decided the 2014 finals could have gone a lot differently if Dwyane Wade had been healthier at the time.
Over three days after the original tweet came out, only 1 liked (from a Lakers fan, of course) and it had 15 quoted tweets making fun of how bad the blogging was. This is what you call ratio.
I can’t help but start working on my own.
As several of the above tweets indicated, San Antonio’s 14.5-point winning margin across the five-game NBA Finals was a record. That has since been overcome by Golden State’s 15-point margin in 2018, which was also executed against a team led by LeBron.
There are absolutely no doubts in anyone’s mind except for some of Bhatt’s believers that Tottenham will win the NBA title in 2014 no matter which team they face.
For what it’s worth, the three-time champ himself seemed to get the same in 2019 – but then again, he’s speaking for himself, so I can’t blame him.

The bottom line is that the Miami Heat crushed the souls of the San Antonio Spurs in 2013 and were repaid for a solid defeat a year later, and no amount of miraculous recovery would have changed that.
