you can count on the sports guy to make copious incorrect predictions each year as he tries to forecast the unyieldingly unpredictable.
so you can say he just made a lucky guess. but in his column prior to the nba finals game six, he wrote:

"[ray allen] picked miami because he wanted to play in the finals, put more distance between him and [reggied] miller, and maybe even have a vintage moment on the biggest stage possible. it almost happened in Game 5. i think it's going to happen in one of these next two games. maybe even tonight."

and after the game ray allen was the headline after he hit the clutch three-pointer to seal a desperate heat comeback and send the game to an overtime in which his team won the game.
