The 2012 NBA Finals get underway tonight, with the Oklahoma City Thunder facing off against the Miami Heat in what most people predict will be the first of many titles for Kevin Durant and co.

Experts and fans alike are overwhelmingly anticipating an entertaining series, but one that will ultimately end with more heartbreak for LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and the rest of the Heat organization, possibly setting in motion the end of the two-year, Big Three experiment.

James himself famously predicted multiple titles when he and Chris Bosh took their talents to South Beach, joining Wade to form the league's most dominant trio. But now they may not last long enough to even win one championship together.

Aside from the Thunder having home-court advantage in the best-of-seven series, there's plenty of other evidence to suggest that Miami will once again come up short, making James 0-3 in NBA Finals appearances.
