SI’s Thomsen argues Heat will beat Thunder in Finals
Sports Illustrated’s Ian Thomsen joined the show to talk about the Finals. He disagrees with guest host Chris Mannix that the Thunder will win the title. Thomsen likes the Heat.
Thomsen thinks Miami’s Finals experience will be the difference. “Miami is much more capable of being flexible,” Thomsen said.
Thomsen said that the Thunder have a major problem if the game goes halfcourt — that would neutralize Oklahoma City’s strengths.
Thomsen also thinks that LeBron is a great defender and will be able to match up with Kevin Durant. Thomsen said LeBron is in the best shape of his life and won’t wear down.
Thomsen thinks the Heat should use Chris Bosh off the bench. He said the floor is too crowded when he’s in the starting lineup. And that way, you always have two superstars on the floor.
“Oklahoma City will have some things thrown at them they’ve never seen before,” Thomsen said.
