The NBA Finals are in full swing which each game being more entertaining than the previous one. As the defending champs the Miami Heat take on seasoned veterans the San Antonio Spurs in a best of 7 tied at 2 games a piece, it seems this year will see a full 7 games and momentum at that point will be vital. By that 7th game, or the rubber match as us wrestling fans know it, either team will use any resource possible to win. The Spurs might have started early, invoking some psychological warfare in Game 4: when announcing the starting lineup for The Heat, their arena played the Undertaker’s theme!
In all likelihood, it was probably the Music Director’s attempt to psyche out the Miami Heat by playing a funeral dirge, which in itself is not a bad plan. A little cocky, but not a bad plan. The only mistake was the song selection. The NBA Finals are the Wrestlemania of Basketball and the Undertaker at Wrestlemania is The Undertaker at Wrestlemania: unbeatable. Is Taker’s theme responsible for The Heat’s victory over The Spurs in Game 4? Maybe, but the 30+ points by LeBron James and Dwyane Wade probably had more to do with it. Also, the fact that The Heat blocked enough shots to make a montage. A montage! We’re not calling the Miami Heat the Undertaker of the NBA but maybe they are taking over.
