What? A 2013 NBA Finals without the Miami Heat?
That's insane, ludicrous and, frankly, disrespectful to the reigning NBA champions, isn't it?
On paper, an NBA Finals this season without the Miami Heat doesn't seem real. But on the court, the Heat have given fans plenty of reasons to think that a trip to the NBA Finals could be much harder than originally thought.
From the mighty New York Knicks to the Heat's inability to rebound the ball, there are plenty of signs leading us to believe that the Heat will miss the 2013 NBA Finals.
All statistics are current as of Dec. 19.
