I participated in a 5-on-5 about the best of 2011 in the NBA. Unlike Patrick’s 5-on-5 about the strangest things of 2011, mine obviously didn’t include any Pistons moments.

Most fans rooted against them, but nearly every fan cared. By reaching the final round, the Heat allowed the storyline to garner attention as long as possible.
