If the Heat advance, the Nuggets will have faced the 8, 4, 7, and 8 seeds. Easiest path in history by seed.
I don't know. Ant/KAT, Booker/Durant, and Lebron/AD seems legit to me.

No where near the 2021 suns who played no one leading up to finals because every team had injuries.

I'm here to watch the Lakers lose again tonight. Is the game starting late?
The period of the three ECF losses, I was a stranded skier, and the Nuggets were a St Bernard ambling over to me with a brandy barrel around their neck. It’s going to take a few minutes to build up the necessary enmity for them when the Finals tip off in Boston.

If there is a heaven, I hope there's a channel on TV where the only thing they play are laker losses. I can't get enough.
With James Worthy on the postgame show.

I asked more than one Laker fan in my office today “what time is the Laker game tonight?”

This Nuggets team was engineered in a lab to be unhateable. I don't even know where to start for enmity generation.

Jeff Green scored 19 points and had 8 rebounds in game 7 of the ECF in 2018 (both were his playoff season high that year, in 22 games). After Lebron and the Celtics 3 point shooting, perhaps the biggest reason why Boston lost that game. I want to say fuck that guy, but my heart just isn't in it.

well, KCP is a former Laker and won a title with them.

that's probably the least "reach" I can come up with though.
In addition to KCP, I can imagine Gordon being annoying in a series, and Bruce Brown. But Murray and Jokic are just good and don't engage in histrionics. Even Malone is a guy who works and doesn't whine. On the plus side, their lack of an instigator will enable the Celtics to avoid some of their worst mental lapses.

Gordon was built to be in this city.

Gordon and Brown are not annoying at all. Really good roleplayers who don't do antics.
