10 Impediments to a Dream Lakers-Heat NBA Finals Matchup

There is a rumor going around that the NBA is fixed. 

I've never cared for, nor believed this rumor to be true.

Those who believe that David Stern has the results of each NBA season in his back pocket, point out that Tim Donaghy was able to write an entire book on the shady dealings of the NBA.

These are also the words of a compulsive gambler, who would say anything to get the attention off of him.

Those who still believe his allegations feel that we are headed toward a ratings juggernaut Lakers- Heat Finals.

Think about it. If the NBA was fixed, would they have sent the boring Spurs to the Finals four times in the last eleven years? A Spurs Vs anyone Finals is not the way to get ratings.

If the NBA was fixed, wouldn't the Lakers have faced the Cavaliers in the Finals last year? That match up would have sent ratings sky-high.

Rigged or not rigged, it does seem to be probable that the Lakers and Heat meet on the NBA's biggest stage. The road to this highly anticipated series will not be easy however, as many obsticals lay ahead for both teams.

Here are some of the most probable situations that could de-rail this dream like Finals match up.
