Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix (@ChrisMannixSI) joined the show to break down the NBA Finals.
“I like San Antonio,” Mannix said. “I picked them to start. And I’m going to stick with them. … I just think they’re the better team right now. One of the reasons is that Mario Chalmers and Norris Cole have given the Heat nothing. Tony Parker, bad leg and all, is going right at them.”
Mannix said that Chalmers or Cole has to step up for the Heat to win. He said that every time LeBron James has to cover Parker, he loses energy that could be used on offense. And Mannix said that Mike Miller is actually a defensive liability.
Mannix said that right now Spurs sharpshooter Danny Green is the series MVP.
Mannix also talked about some of the big trade rumors out there. He said that if Eric Bledsoe is included in the potential Clippers-Celtics deal, coach Doc Rivers and Kevin Garnett will be headed to Los Angeles.
