Why The Pacers Can Beat The Heat (Part 1)

It's not an impossible dream as the media will have you think. Although the Miami Heat have LeBron James, they can be beat. We'll begin with this question.

Who was the last team that won the NBA Championship without a superstar on their roster? Answer: The 2004 Detroit Pistons. Though most of us Pacer fans do not like these characters, they won an NBA Championship with a similar philosphy. Imposing defense and rebounding.

When you look at the comparisons between the Pacers now and the 2004 Detroit Pistons, they are built very similar. You could argue either way who has a slightly better squad depending on which team shows up to play. Larry designed it that way.

So what does this have to do with the Pacers chances of beating the Heat? Well, the 2004 Detroit Pistions got to the NBA Finals that year and had to face The Lakers with Shaq and Kobe in their prime. They won with the same philosphy, intense defense and rebounding. Do you see where I'm going with this?

Exactly, The Pacers imposing defense and rebounding can beat the Heat!
