2012 NBA Finals: Heat Go "Old Man" On Thunder Youth

In the latest episode of Bomani & Jones, host Bomani Jones discusses the advantage Miami has over the Oklahoma City Thunder with experience.

With several young players that have never seen a stage like the NBA Finals, Bomani certainly has a point about the Thunder. Like he says he the video, Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant, James Harden and Serge Ibaka are all 23 or younger while each of the big three for the Heat are in their ninth season.

While Durant has scored plenty during the first three games of the series, his foul trouble in each game can be certainly be attributed to inexperience and the play of MVP Lebron James. Couple that with the play of Bosh and Wade as described by Jones in the video and it's not entirely surprising that the "old man" Heat have jumped out to a 2-1 lead in the series.

Now if only I knew more about Spades.
