The reigning NBA champion Miami Heat and MVP Lebron James are coming off not only a memorable season, but a historic one. The Heat are going into this season aiming to become back-to-back champs.
The Heat have finally secured the first seed in the Eastern conference after battling the New York Knicks night in and night out but are only a half a game ahead in the East and overall are 6th in the league standing. Miami’s key players already made an imprint on the league, LeBron James won NBA player of the week for the 38th time (most in NBA history) just last month.
One reason the Heat will win yet another title this season is due to the teams great chemistry. With star players James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh who have played together for three years, have all played on the Olympic team twice and have age and experience over younger teams like the L.A Clippers who are young. Miami’s big three is simply the best in the league even compared to that of the L.A Lakers’ Dwight Howard, Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash, or the Brooklyn Nets’ Joe Johnson, Deron Williams and Gerald Wallace.
Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis have also played together on the Seattle Supersonic. Also the team’s veteran leadership from players like Allen, Lewis, Wade, Bosh, and James gives the Heat an edge over dynamic teams like the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Clippers.
As the Heat look to repeat, Miami has already made an unstoppable team even greater. With the off-season additions of Allen and Lewis to the already exhilarating three-point specialist, Mike Miller and Shane Battier, Miami will easily be the best team from beyond the arc this season.
Yet, not only is Allen an astonishing three-point specialist, but he can help secure wins. Allen already has two game winning shots under his belt this season. The addition of Allen is truly the piece to the puzzle the Heat have been looking for to bring back yet another title to Miami.
