Video: LeBron James with the ally-oop to Dwyane Wade

Nov 7, 2012, 10:20 PM EDT

You cam make a couple of takeaways from the Miami Heat’s sound thrashing of the Brooklyn Nets Wednesday. One is that the Nets just are not very good and a long way from contending like their owner has promised. A very long way.

The other is that the Miami Heat are very good. And that if you get Dwyane Wade and LeBron James running the break together 2-on-1 you are pretty much toast. Which is what happens here after Wade makes the steal and it is off to the races.

    Worth mentioning how much I’m enjoying this Heat team. Not making any bold predictions or statements. Just saying its so much fun watching the game being played so beautifully.

      The degree of ball movement, especially when compared to 2010 and early 2011 – when it seemed like LeBron/Wade iso every possession on offense – is a lot of fun to watch.

      The Heat aren’t the Spurs, of course, but you can definitely see the chemistry advantages of most of the top 9 guys on the roster playing with each other for 3 seasons.

    This team is SCARY !

    The bench is so deep…when players rotate in, the offense and defense continues to click.

    LBJ said – No Body cares who scores, as long as there is a score.

    That’s honorable and FUNDAMENTAL.

      Well said. Two things jump out about this year’s Heat: (1) the ball movement is the best we’ve ever seen in Miami and (2) the bench is usually expanding the lead rather than losing it. I’m sure the rotation will shorten come playoffs, but the more rest we can get for the big FOUR along the way, the better the Heat will be.

      We’ll see how everybody is feeling in April, but man, how about the returns on Allen and Lewis thus far? They are both exceeding expectations in my mind. I knew Allen would be a great fit, but it’s about so much more than 3-pointers with him. And Lewis? If he keeps this up he’ll have a healthy role all year.

    This team is going to be terrifying if they can keep this pace up all season. It totally reminds me of the Oregon ducks..their score is like 50 something by half time and the back ups get starter minutes. lol Everyone is getting a chance to play, but can this style of play work in the playoffs where it becomes half court basketball?

    • guyaneserj - Nov 8, 2012 at 9:23 AM

      Probably not.. we’ll see a smaller rotation, but it gives fringe players da opportunity 2 impress Spo enuf 2 get dem playoff mins..

      I think the minutes given to the bench players will only benefit us in the playoffs.

      • guyaneserj - Nov 8, 2012 at 9:35 AM

        AGREED! A rested Jesus Shuttlesworth [I mention Ray Ray 1st cause he’s 37], LBJ, DWade, Bosh will benefit us tremendously!

      • 1heatedtoombrayduh - Nov 8, 2012 at 12:06 PM

        Yeah, I love the thought of the big three getting 30 (highly efficient ) minutes a night..It may hurt some MVP votes, but this could add years to one’s career (if this is kept up). Long term not short term.

    as long as lebron keeps playing jordan/magic-esque, who elese is gonna be MVP? Not even a Heat fan at all but goddamn, that man can ball
