Dwyane Wade Releases iPhone App “Driven.”

Is Dwyane Wade's iPhone app "Driven" awesome for ballers developing skills or just a ploy at making more money?

HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: For $3.99 it's hard to go wrong and although this app is a little corny, it does have some great exercises and drills.

Who’s Better 71-72 Lakers or 12-13 Heat?

Who’s Better 71-72 Lakers or 12-13 Heat?

Who's better the 71-72 Lakers or the 12-13 Heat?

HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: The season's not over, but comparisons have already begun. This one's a lot closer than Heat haters want to admit.

The question has been boiling to the service as the Miami Heat's winning streak kept growing. Now that it's over some comparisons are unavoidable. Both teams are clearly dominating the league, but lets go inside the numbers.

Win Streak: Lakers 33 games, Miami 27.

Overall Record: Lakers 69-13, Miami 56-15 (11 games left)

Big 3: Lakers (Chamberlain, West, Goodrich), Miami (James, Wade, Bosh).

Lead over closest team: Lakers 18 games ahead of the Warriors, Miami 11.5 ahead of the Knicks.

Points Per Game: Lakers 121, Miami 103.4.

Points Allowed Per Game: Lakers, 108.7, Miami 95.6.

Field Goal %: Lakers 49%, Miami 49.6%.

Computer Simulation: Gives the edge to the Lakers 54% of the time. (Got to love the age of computers)

Looks like the Lakers are the better team on paper. If these two squads went head-to-head it would be a match-up nightmare for both squads. Who does Miami put on Chamberlain? Who do the Lakers put on LeBron? Although both teams would put up big numbers the Lakers would eventually win. They'd dominate the boards and although Wade's quickness would offset some Laker offense, the big three of Los Angeles are more balanced in terms of skill sets. West, Goodrich, and Chamberlain are position players. LeBron, Wade, and Bosh are hybrid players that still today don't always know their roles.

Of course, all bets are off if the Heat don't win the championship at the end of the season. If we learned nothing from the New England Patriots almost undefeated season before they lost to the New York Giants in the Super Bowl, it's that great regular season count for almost nothing if you don't cap it off with a ring.
