NPR's Mike Pesca talks to All Things Considered host Robert Siegel about the Miami Heat, who will defend its NBA title against the San Antonio Spurs. It is the third consecutive trip to the finals for the Heat and though they had a tough series with Indiana, many still consider them the favorite. The best of seven championship series starts Thursday.
