The Oklahoma City Thunder and the Miami Heat will be  meeting Tuesday for the NBA Finals. These teams are similar in their Big 3 mentality, yet the titanic battle will display contrasts throughout.   Advantages for the Oklahoma City Thunder: III: Three Point Shooting The Miami Heat truly stepped up their shooting from deep after a dismal display for most of the Indiana Pacers series.

That being said, out of the five starters notwithstanding PF Chris Bosh’s recent barrage, there are more consistent three point shooters on the Thunder.

Being some 45 year old mid-life-crisis-big-bellied Bostonian who dropped $200+ on tickets and $8+ on crappy beer doesn’t give you the right to throw a beer at a professional athlete. Be a man and jump on the court and take a swing at the big fella. I would respect that much more. But waiting for Lebron...
