So I guess you're saying that Wade would be harder to defend than Jordan

No, I'm not. But Jordan used his jumpshot more often than not in his later career. Dwyane Wade doesn't shoot many jumpers, he likes to use his strength to bully his way into the paint.

Now that I'm thinking about it, Dwyane appears stockier because he's shorter than Jordan. Jordan is obviously the tougher cover, but I think Wade would still give Reggie fits and tire him by leaning on him constantly.

The Heat would win and it would be an awesome series. Awesome series.


Miller would give Wade hell...one thing Wade hates to do (tho he does do it) is chase a guy around. A guy like Reggie is much worse for Wade than Rip Hamilton is. Rip runs tighter circles and keeps Wade in position to play help defense and trap, which he loves to do. Reggie is much better than Hamilton but, more importantly, Reggie runs all over his side of the court. Wade would be unable to play have his all-around or overall impact on defense. Wade is also heavier than he was when he was at his best and would tire out more easily than he used to, especially against Reggie. Reggie is also very crafty and supremely intelligent. He's also one of the greatest team offensive players (does that sound like it makes sense?). Wade is an elite on-ball defender. Reggie would never put the ball on the floor against Wade without the intention of baiting him. Wade is different, post-LeBron. Reggie would bother him a lot.


The Pacers would be smart to play Mullin as the 6th man (which is what they should have done, from the beginning) and let McKey start. McKey never played up to his full potential, due to being overly passive. But they'd need his defense against LeBron. I think he'd step up and put in a great performance on that side of the ball...but Lebron is still the best player and would be the biggest difference in the series. I don't think it's impossible that the Pacers could win tho. Larry Bird was a great coach.

I wanted to avoid this thread because I was expecting a bunch of comments from people who never saw that 98 team play....But this is an excellent assessment...

Then the refs happened....Just like game 6 of the 2000 Finals.....Pacers were up 16 in the 3rd in that game also until the refs made their presence felt...I hate blaming refs but sometimes is inevitable...It may just be fans of teams like the Pacers, like me, we remember stuff like that and we probably always feel cheated....Its how I felt when we used to play the Knicks in NY...Never felt like we got a break and it always felt like Reggie had to be superman for us to win....

Would be a close series due to rebounding, but Riley would have set up the team differently back in those days.

So many ignorant here.. 2000 Pacers pushed the Lakers with prime Shaq and young Kobe to a 6 games in the finals and people here think Heat has a chance against the Pacers.. FYI the 2000 Pacers was a lesser version of 1998 Pacers..

2000 Lakers > 98 Pacers >>> 2000 Pacers >>>>>>>>>> 2013 Heat.. Fact
