Yup, I've got no interest in facing them. I'd rather face any other team in the East over them, including Philly and Boston and Toronto.
My biggest concern with Miami is playing them on the road and our guys being at the titty bar until 5 a.m. Inside the bubble, I'm not as concerned.
Miami has a star closer in Jimmy, lots of bodies in Bam/Iggy/Crowder/Hill to throw at Giannis, shot-makers that can catch fire in Dragic/Robinson/Herro and a top tier coach on Spo. Yeah, I'd prefer not to face that squad.
Boston has its fool's gold star in Tatum, a still seemingly gimpy Kemba, and no one that can really slow down Giannis. They are well-coached though and no doubt would be a tough out.
Toronto has Siakam/OG/Ibaka to throw at Giannis, but they scare me far less without a closer like Kawhi. I like the potential revenge factor for us.
Philly is dangerous, but mostly just a chemistry dumpster fire with inadequate spacing and closing ability.
MIA, BOS, TOR, PHI is probably the order I would rank the teams I'd rather not **** around with.
