PBT Extra: Are the Heat a dynasty? Can they three-peat?

Jun 21, 2013, 2:31 PM EDT

Today on PBT Extra we look back at the Miami Heat and their back-to-back NBA Finals wins.

Kay Adams asks if they are a dynasty? I don’t know, I do know that we spend more time defining and re-defining the instant legacy of LeBron James and the Miami Heat than we have any of the other best teams of the last 30 years.

And a three-peat for the Heat is going to be much harder than winning this one. (I wrote about that in more detail, if you are good with words instead of videos.)

    Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa……. Slooooooooowwwww down Junior. This Victory Lap isn’t even close to being done. It just started. And it’s going to be a long, Jeffrey Leonard “One-Flap Down” stroll around the bases. All you guys throwing fastballs at our heads these past 3 years are just going to have to stand on the mound and deal with it for a while.

      Dynasty already. 3 trips to Finals the last 3 years. If Lebron understood his role against the Mavs, they’d already be three-peaters.

      Listen, realize your cap hit is huge with the BIG 3, you only have mid levels, and
      veteran minimums etc. to get some beef on your front line. Remember like Kobe
      LeBron will break down too, even though they skip College you do get mileage.
      Pat Riley can’t just get people who want to play with LeBron, guy’s want to get paid
      too and they want to be stars and have their own BIG 3.

        LeBron seems indestructible but he’s not.

    I think I need to say a few more words for our dearly departed friend, Cantonbound13.

    This was a man who was not so much a die hard fan of a team as he was a die hard hater of his own hometown Miami Heat. This was a man who professed to be a NY Knicks fan, and that may have well been true. But ifyou read this site regularly, you’ll know that his true loyalty was toward hating on the Miami Heat, and in particular,LeBron James.

    This was a man who would comment after every Heat game, during preseason, meaningless regular season games in January, everyday, all day, like 3 in the morning all day.

    And now that he’s dead, what is his legacy? He was given a gift from the Sports Gods. And instead of going all-in with this team and having the most awesome experience a sports fan could ever have, he decided to bet the “Don’t”. And those dice came up “Hard-8” didn’t they?

    So let’s have a moment of silence for Cantonbound13. And let’s enjoy the future silence from Cantonbound13

    they have played in the last 3 Finals winning two, I think they have to win a few more, the
    3peat would be a BIG plus in their discussion, a 4peat would be Huge!

    Lockout wins don’t count. They’re looking for a repeat.

    • fanofevilempire - Jun 21, 2013 at 4:08 PM

      really, are you in the nba, who are you anyway?

    • cullenand99 - Jun 21, 2013 at 4:27 PM

      Why not? Every other team in the NBA played the same amount of games and they still had to win 16 playoff games. Of course it counts.

    • hehateme2 - Jun 21, 2013 at 5:31 PM

      Your envy is strong. Enjoy the parade on Monday!

    Of course they can win, with the Ref’s help again. Let’s face it, the series was won by the Spurs in game 6. The Non-call against the Heat under the Spurs basket with less than 30 seconds to go and subsequent no free throws, propelled the series to a game seven. The Spurs had already won. But, David Stern via his officiating crew, made sure the “popular” team had another chance. I predicted this prior to game six. Stern’s makes it so easy. Could’a made a bundle!

      how many steps did Manu take on his way to the basket?
      just stop it already!

      • andyhr17 - Jun 22, 2013 at 8:30 AM

        Manu knew how far he needed to get for the first down, and he got it.

    • thelastpieceofcheese - Jun 23, 2013 at 10:44 AM

      Heat won! Suffer baby!

  7. 1972wasalongtimeago - Jun 21, 2013 at 3:42 PM

    We should give a shout out to the Knicks who beat the Heat the second game of the season by 20. 20 years from now, I’m sure that’s what we’ll remember.

    • jimeejohnson - Jun 21, 2013 at 7:03 PM

      I think you’re lying in a cool way.

      • 1972wasalongtimeago - Jun 22, 2013 at 12:46 AM

        You know it.

  8. reasonablemindsays - Jun 21, 2013 at 3:54 PM

    no and no

  9. jzone954 - Jun 21, 2013 at 4:01 PM

    Then maybe the spurs should concentrate on becoming more popular…….

  10. reasonablemindsays - Jun 21, 2013 at 4:42 PM

    If you think the Kobe-Odom-Gasol Lakers were also a dynasty, then yes. A runner-up and two championships in 3 years.

  11. dolphindubs - Jun 21, 2013 at 5:20 PM


    Then Duncan and the Spurs only have 3? Well that changes their legacy a bit doesnt it….

    You’re an idiot by the way.

  12. jbeagles23 - Jun 21, 2013 at 5:31 PM

    And the illegal substitution isn’t mentioned by any heat haters. Shouldn’t have Ben went to overtime.

  13. nycalldayz - Jun 21, 2013 at 5:43 PM

    Here we go again. Nope! In order to be considered a dynasty 4 or more championships would need to be accomplished under the core of James, Wade and Bosh.

  14. WVLDO - Jun 22, 2013 at 4:26 PM

    How many of you Heat fans are gonna go to the parade and leave early?

  15. northstarnic - Jun 22, 2013 at 8:11 PM

    Are they a dynasty?
    Dynasties are built, not bought. NBA is a joke of a sports league. And MeBron is still a chump.
    Hockey game is on. Time to watch a real contest played by some of the toughest athletes around.

  16. loungefly74 - Jun 24, 2013 at 8:38 AM

    absolutely this is a dynasty. 3 Finals trip in the row? what is the argue?
