The Miami Heat look like they are about to miss out on the number one seed, but that could end up being a blessing in disguise. It looks like they are going to be able to avoid the Brooklyn Nets for the first two rounds, and to get out of the first round LeBron James and company will have to demolish the Charlotte Bobcats.
Wade has been on a maintenance plan all season, and it is almost time to let the Flash out of the bag. We will have to see if all of the resting was just precautionary or if they were just saving him for the right moment.
Obviously you knew that the best basketball player in the world was going to make an appearance on this list right? It is snowing right now in Chicago, which makes me quite jealous of King James taking his talents to South Beach all those years ago.
If the Heat can push the pace against the Charlotte Bobcats, then this series could be over in four games. Look for Mario Chalmers to play with a lot of speed and try to make the Bobcats pay in transition.
The owner of the Charlotte Bobcats is Michael Jordan, and he might have to put the sneakers back on if he wants his team to have a chance against the Miami Heat. He did say at his Hall of Fame induction speech that you might one day look up and see him playing the game at the age of 50. No, no. Don't laugh. Because fears, like limits, are often just an illusion.
This is the key to the series. If the Bobcats can impose their will on the inside, then they might be able to steal a couple games. For the Heat to make this a smooth sailing round, then they are going to have to lock down Al Jefferson. That is a lot easier said than done.
