The NBA Finals series between Denver and Miami will get underway on Thursday and Friday night. The Nuggets, who closed things out with a resounding sweep over the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference Finals, waited a long time to know the identity of their opponent in the title battle, and now they know the one thing you shouldn't do against the Heat: underestimate them.

"This is going to be the biggest challenge of our lives, the hardest thing we'll ever do," coach Michael Malone said. "Miami is ranked 8th? She reached the final, no one cares about rankings anymore. Anyone who thinks it's going to be an easy series, I don't know what to tell you. Jimmy Butler is an actor of great moments. He's tough. He's not afraid. He's a fighter. What separates him from all the other players is his passion, his competitive spirit. He's talented, he's strong and knows how to squeeze fouls."

The Nuggets coach further complimented the Heat's hero of the victory, Caleb Martin: "He could easily have been named MVP of the series. I guess Tyler Herro will come back at some point or another, and we all know what he's capable of."

Aaron Gordon added: "Miami fights, it scratches, it never gives up, it never gives up. She plays without fear, disciplined, well trained. We have a lot of respect for them."

Tennis player Coco Goff, who is currently at Roland Garros, is considered a diehard Miami fan. On Tuesday night, she shared a story that shows just how much confidence Jimmy Butler has. She said that in late April, during the regular season, the Heat star offered her tickets to one of the games and asked if she would also like to get tickets to the playoffs. "I told him I wouldn't be, I'd be in Madrid, then Rome, then France," she said. "He said, 'Okay, so when we get to the final, tell me if you and your family want tickets.' That was before they even made the playoffs."

"When he wrote it to me, I realized they would make it to the final," Goff added. "He said they made it to the finals before they even made the playoffs. I love that mentality."
