NBA Finals: 20 Reasons the Miami Heat Will Repeat as Champions
Happy finals, Heat fans! It's June, so you know what that must mean -- your Miami Heat is just a handful of wins away from an NBA title. At this point, Heat fans should treat game one of the NBA Finals like a holiday and get one another presents, maybe put up a tree, light candles, or order Chinese food the night before. It's a 305 tradition now.
