the acquisition of luis scola is a direct shot by the pacers against our beloved heat. the pacers has thrown the gauntlet, and with the way they played the heat last postseason, they are convinced that pounding the heat inside is the key to dethroning the defending champions. while i still believe that the key to overcoming any opponent is a healthy dwyane wade, the frontline of hibbert, west and scola gives me the shivers, it is now imperative for the heat to take a gamble on oden, because if oden can guard hibbert one on one, we can match up well with them without being hurt repeatedly inside. now, the real threat for our threepeat is within our conference, and that is this pacers team, because i am not afraid of any western conference team. neither i am perturbed by a bulls team with a healthy rose, but i think the addition of scola by the pacers will force the hand of the great pat riley to make a countermove.
