That's the gist of Chris Mannix's column Friday on the possibility of Heat/Nets series in the second round. Why? One reason is that the Heat's chemistry is simply not that good. But more important, he says, the Heat has no answer for Vince Carter, who he says "is like a nuclear weapon: When he goes off, he has the ability to wipe out everyone". Mannix also describes Jason Collins, "a fantastic defender", as the annual winner of "The Best Player No One Cares About" award.
