The Miami Heat finally dispatched of the tough, veteran Boston Celtics over the weekend in the all-or-nothing Game 7, to become the Eastern Conference Champions and punch their ticket to the NBA Finals for the second year in a row. Last year, the Heat came up short against another veteran team in the Dallas Mavericks.

This year, however, the Heat face the Oklahoma City Thunder. The team is young and hungry -- and the player core has an average age of 23. The Heat's Big Three of reigning MVPs -- LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh -- will face off against the Thunder's Big Three of MVPs runner-up -- Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, and Sixth Man of The Year James Harden.

The young OKC squad also boasts a couple of championship team veterans in five-time NBA champion and former Los Angeles Laker Derek Fisher, as well as center Kendrick Perkins, who won a ring with the 2008 Boston Celtics. Both veterans have played big roles in championship teams in the past and their experience can't be discredited. But as a team, the Heat have been here before. Can they get through the young guns or will OKC Nation watch their team Thunder Up(!) to an NBA Title? Find out Tuesday night on ABC, when the NBA Finals begin with Game 1: Miami Heat Oklahoma City Thunder.

    Basketball stopped being fun when Michael Jordan retired. When I was little Chicago Bulls were my favorite basketball team. My dad used to get so angry because he wanted me to root for the Boston Celtics like him lol It was the '98 game. Chicago won 111-88. It was killing my dad haha bulls vs celtics michael jordan

    Other than hoping for an OKC championship, no. As much as I like Dwyane Wade, his being teamed with LeBron James doesn't work for me.

    But I'll still root for the team formerly known as the Seattle SuperSonics, anyway.

    I love basketball, It's my favirot sport. I think the matchup between OKC and the Heat is going to be great. Lebron has'nt shown to me that he deserves a ring both with his personality and play in crunch times. I want OKC, a true team of team players to ruin the Heats hopes and Lebrons hopes of ever being as big as Kobe or MJ. Go OKC....!!!! But also I just wanna see a great and exciting games in this years Finals.

    I've never been a real big basketball fan, but even when I was I liked the Spurs, because Tim Duncan does it right. But since OKC has gotten a team...I find myself and my family watching them all the time. So, go Thunder! I hate Lebron, tired of all the comparisons to MJ and Kobe, because until he wins a title or multiple titles....there is no comparison.

    Lebron can barely hit free throws or big shots in crunch time. His ego is to big and fragile.

    Here's my take on him...he hasn't grown up yet. He was given everything in high school (hummer with video game in it), never went to college, was treated like royalty in Cleveland, and self appointed all time champ in Miami.

    I hate to throw a good guy under the bus, but it's like the Tebow effect. ESPN shoves him down your face every morning, noon, and night to the point where you just get tired of hearing about how great someone is that hasn't won anything yet...

    I am concerned about coach Spo's substitute policy; did you see Norris Cole STOP Rajon Rondo in game 6? Coach Spo pulled him and didn't put him back in. Spo has the nack for pullig a player when he is hot but my Heat will go all the way this year. BTW, the Heat do NOT play their games on South Beach, it's downtown.

    I never thought I'd be wishing the Heat success -- especially after they dispatched my pride, the Celtics, this year. But after the unceremonious way the Supersonics... I'm sotty, the Thunder dumped on Seattle; may the Heat steal OKC's Thunder and leave Fisher and Perkins in melt-down.

    I AM surprised they finally came to a deal after being on strike for so long. Bunch of over paid athletes IMO.

    The finals will allow more people to appreciate the skills, talent and effective of the OK
    Thunder team. Many are not familiar with its talent vs the Spurs, Celtics or Heat, It is a team that deserves more recognition.
