Basketball picksMay 10, 2011

With the two-time defending NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers swept by the Dallas Mavericks and the defending Eastern Conference champion Boston Celtics 1 game from elimination as they head into Game 5, the question about which team is the best all-around squad left in the NBA playoffs has become a pretty heated debate.

Obviously, there are a few people holding onto the opinion that the Celtics have been here before and will most likely turn it around, but the consensus around the league right now is that the Miami Heat might just be the best team left in the playoffs.

With the three-headed monster of Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James leading the way, the Miami Heat have been as tough a team to beat in the Eastern Conference during these playoffs and clear favorites in NBA picks.

Whether or not their inexperience playing with each other in the playoffs will be their downfall remains to be seen, but right now they are sitting pretty with a 3-1 series lead and look like they may have already punched their ticket to the Eastern Conference Finals.
