Finals Preview? Miami Heat, L.A. Lakers Need Change For It to Happen

HEAT OR 3PEAT?  Could this major NBA preconceived marketing bonanza really happen?

At the beginning of the season the defending champion L.A. Lakers were ranked number one and the unproven Miami Heat were ranked number two.

And a lot has changed since then. 

In the East, the Boston Celtics are stepping on opponents like the Jolly Green Giant and the Orlando Magic have blown up their team in favor for a more offensively favored lineup to help defensive monster Dwight Howard fend off the Heat.  The Chicago Bulls are also a force when all their stars are in the starting rotation.

In the West, the Dallas Mavericks and San Antonio Spurs are looking better than the Lakers as they steamroll over their competition with cold precision.

Indeed, the Lakers and the Heat have much more to worry about then themselves because just making it out of their own conferences will be a major challenge.

Unless change starts happening for the Lakers and the Heat, a Christmas day showdown between rivals Kobe Bryant and Dwayne Wade will not in anyway shape or form be a preview to the NBA Finals.

Although watching Wade challenge Kobe for SG supremacy in the NBA will be exciting, to say the least.

HEAT OR 3-PEAT?  Hum bug.
