The Mavs were the better team, and there is no shame in Miami losing to them.
I also think we should chill on the “Miami’s 2010-2011 season was a failure” bull(spit).
First of all, how many NBA experts had the Heat making it to the NBA Finals? Remember most of the sports world thought the Boston Celtics were the team to beat in the Eastern Conference (and would have been if they didn’t trade Kendrick Perkins). Hell, my dumb ass picked the Orlando Magic to come out of the East before the season began (what in the hell was I thinking with that one)!
We all thought that it would take a year for the Heat to gel, and expected them to start making title runs NEXT YEAR. As far as I am concerned, the Heat were a year ahead of schedule. Miami making the Finals this year was a success in of itself.
Now, in analyzing the Finals, Miami probably underachieved a bit. Let’s be honest here, the Heat should have won the first three games of the series. In Game 2, they fell asleep after leading by 15 with seven minutes and change left to go in the game.
Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh played well enough to win the series. They will be back and contend for more rings. Miami just needs to add a big man and a legit point guard and it will be ok.
As for LeBron James, someone needs to get Dr. Phil on the phone because I do not know where that negro’s head was at.
