Default 04 Detroit Pistons vs 13 Miami Heat Which Team Wins the East?

2004 Detroit Pistons

One of the greatest defensive teams, in NBA history, the 04 Detroit Pistons. A team that took down the seemingly unbeatable duo Kobe plus Shaq in the 2004 NBA Finals, to win the NBA Championship. Coached by Larry Brown, this team showed the world that they could win it all without a super star. Truly, one of the greatest teams ever assembled in the NBA.

Versus

2013 Miami Heat

A team that seems destined to break the NBA consecutive wins streak. Many people consider this team to be one of the most stacked teams in NBA history. They have it all. The greatest player in the NBA. Lebron James. A super star guard in Dwayne Wade. An all-star foward in Chris Bosh. Lights out shooters like Ray Allen and Shane Battier, etc. A team that has already proved to the world they could go the distance by winning the NBA Championship in 2012.

The match up is set. It's the Eastern Conference Finals. The 2004 Detroit Pistons versus the 2013 Miami Heat. Only one team can survive. Who wins?

2013 Heat in 6. But I would love to have seen Wade/Hamilton go at it for a 7 game series.

I'm leaning towards the Pistons..I think it would come down to 7 games but the chemistry they had was nuts. Plus it would be different with someone in the middle who can actually contest LeBron/Wade's drives.

Pistons would beat the Heat in 6. Too much D and a perfectly shared offense. Ball don't lie.

Wow. .500 was good enough for a 5 seed back then.

Which rules are you using? 2004 rules or 2013 rules?

Whichever team gets to use their own times rules.

The Pistons case closed. Not only did the have the perfect team with the perfect chemistry, they also had more heart than the Heat. That team beat the best team in the world (albeit Karl being injured, they kinda luck out) of the time in 5.

While it wouldn't go as easy as the Heat has crazy chemistry I have faith that team could beat this team of titans.

Also they almost beat a stacked Spurs the next year another team that 'has' a lot of heart.

Sheed and Ben Wallace in the paint, Lebron/Wade wont be able to put up all the flashy moves/dunks they're having this season.


I'll go with Pistons.

Heat in 5. Wade has always shred the Pistons in the playoffs, and Lebron would dominate Prince. Pistons win a game and keep it close cause of their bigs.
