Game 6 is in Miami, and I can't imagine how the Heat can NOT finish this series off. I implore the Heat to win Game 6, because I am already draining my picks now in both conferences.
After my LeBron pick who got me to 99 percentile, I thought that was it for me as I was ready to face falling off slowly as the Conference Finals push through. Luckily after him, four straight picks of about 21 PRA each had me floating around the 185 rank for the past 4 days, still at 99p.
The Heat should have finished in 5. And the Thunder should have lost in 5 without Ibaka. But I was a fool to think that to be easy. As I slowly pick off my best men in this round, the more I worry about the Finals. You guys are going to be happily skipping pass me during the Finals, because I am again going to pick a Heat in advance. I pick my last of the Big Three, Chris Bosh.
I thought of going fancy and pick Rashard Lewis instead, because of the minutes he is getting in this series lately. I thought he can never get heavy minutes versus the Spurs (nor the Thunder). So it is tempting to exploit that now. If any of you are feeling lucky, I recommend him. I just don't feel lucky enough yet for myself.
As for those contemplating picking LeBron, I would suggest against it. His low PRA was due to his fouls and not because he played poorly. In fact, he was still efficient when he was on the floor. So there's no bounceback factor I think. He plays better when they are in the brink of elimination than when they are up. They still lead 3-2. So, wait for Game 7, or the Finals.
