I’ve been rooting for the Heat since last and I still am. It’s tough to expect a playoff run with Dwyane out with a separated shoulder. But it’s not impossible.
If there’s one word to sum up the Heat’s lackluster performance as defensive champs, it’d be “injuries.” Key players have been down unhealthy. Shaq had a knee injury and he’ll never be just as nimble and quick as age catches up to him. Jason Williams has also been out for the better part of the first half .
Come to think of it, Miami’s bench isn’t that shallow. Let’s see, they’ve got James Posey and Eddie Jones – both of whom are effective scorers. Udonis Haslem and Zo Mourning are tough challenges inside. Not to mention, they’ve got the reigning 3-ball champ Jason Kapono to provide the outside touch. Still, the best option is a two-man game of Shaq and J-Will. Provided that they’d stay healthy, they might just pull through.
It’s time to step up and the rest of the team just needs to up the tempo and fill in the void left by D-Wade.
You. are. rooting. for. the. heat?!
How could you?! lol.
Anyway, I’m all for the Dallas Mavericks. It was unbelievably painful to see all the phantom foul calls that Dwyane Wade got during the NBA Finals. It was really painful. I had to withdraw from talking about basketball for about a week after the NBA Finals.
The Heat will probably finish at the number 7 or 8 spot. What a treat for Detroit/Cleveland. haha
Yes I am! How can I? I’m a hardcore D-Wade fan, that’s why. So that doesn’t give me much reason to root for them anymore. Haha.
But I pick the Mavs to win it all this year. Dirk deserves the MVP and the championship.
Yeah, Detroit will probably earn something for Wade’s injury. But getting C-Dub was a great move.
Thank you. I hope Dirk mans up and just takes this team all the way. I want the Raptors to make it to the Finals! Dirk vs Mago! hehe.
I wonder what injury Pat Riley would feign to leave the Heat this time.
It’s the Western Conference’s show. Can’t expect much from the East. It’s much like the year when the Lakers and Philly made it to the Finals. Great underdog in AI but you know who’ll win in the end.
Hehe. Pat? Maybe chronic migraine. -_-
