The eastern conference has been in shambles since the unexpected underdogs from the east, The Miami Heat. Also in the west as many could have predicted, the Los Angeles Lakers pushed through each opponent going 12 and three losses in the playoffs. The Miami Heat is also 12 and three as well, with a huge 4-1 series win versus the two time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo and arguably the most lethal team in the east, the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Heat finished the regular season with a solid record of 44-29, being seeded number five in the eastern conference. Recently, the star veteran player Jimmy Butler has increased in popularity recently due to the surprising advancement of the Heat this year in the playoffs. The Heat haven’t been to the finals since 2013. Before this year came to be, the Miami Heat was known for their dog-like defense with 7.5 steals a game, and could possibly cause a problem to the fast paced Lakers. Although their defense isn’t something to be slept on, if you take a good look at the Lakers roster.

The Los Angeles Lakers have two of the top five players in the league, Lebron James and Anthony Davis. Not to forget they have a few veterans that have been in the league such as Rajion Rondo, Diwight Howard,  and NBA champion Javale Mcgee. With the Lakers being the favorite to win the championship, we could either see King James win his fourth NBA championship, or a huge upset with the Miami Heat winning it all.
