The NBA Finals: Why the Heat will win the championship

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) This pick doesn't make much sense.

The best scorer on the Miami Heat might be a baby-faced rookie. The best player had never been past the second round of the playoffs before this season. The starting center wasn't good enough to make a USA Basketball World Cup team that went to China last year and managed to only finish seventh. And the Heat have been the NBA's best team this season in basically two categories: true shooting percentage (which is good) and double-digit leads blown (which is not).

Hey, it's 2020. Nothing makes sense.
