Congrats to the Heat. I know as knick of the 90s i would never say that. But how can u not love Shaq and Wade. I avent posted in a while b/c the Knicks are a disgrace. Not just the players but management as well. Mainly the owner.
Remeber how the Heat and knicks mirrored each other. In 2000 we faced each other for the last time in a 7 game series. In 2001 we both got eleiminated, suprisingly, in the 1st round, in 2002, and 2003 the Heat and the Knicks both failed to make the Finals. That's where things changed. The Heat got younger, let contract run out. REally rebooted the team. The knicks kept on pile on contract after contract. In 2004 both teams made it the playoffs. The Knicks got swept and the young and new Heat losta tough 6 game series to a championship worthy Pacer team in the conference semi-finals. 2005: Heat lose game 7 in eastern conference finals, Knicks fail to reach playoffd. 2006, Heat move on to Finals the Knicks suffer one of their worse seasons in history. The Heat continue to become a great team and even when Shaq leave they will still be a team to reckon with (D-Wade). The Knicks won 22 games while still sinking in a sea of controversy among personel and mismanagement and mispending.
2 teams with one of the fiercest rivalry in the history of the NBA and really place them in complete opposite ends of the spectrum. But the Heat side looks so much more pleasant for years to come. Wow!!
