We don’t really know how good this Heat team will be — the big three have spent just over three minutes together on the court so far. It’s been a bit of a wasted preseason for the Heat. The players get it and have said they are not looking too far ahead yet.
The fans… they are looking ahead.
Miami fans, David Stern may share your dream of a Heat/Lakers finals but, um, there’s the little issue of Boston and Orlando out East. Got to get by them before you can earn a shot at the Lakers.
That would be the Celtics with the long front line you will struggle to match up with. That would be the Orlando Magic that are going to run a point guard/center pick and roll that attacks your two weakest positions.
Heat fans, you are going to have a good team But you look past the rest of the East at your own peril. And you just gave them some bulletin board material.
