Holy overreaction, Magic Johnson. Yes, the Heat are struggling. That’s not exactly a secret. But you don’t dismantle a team that won 26-straight games because they’re down 2-1 in the NBA Finals.

First of all, there’s still more than enough time for the Heat to turn it around. Why? Because they have this guy Lebron James. He’s pretty good.
Second, think of who they are losing to. It’s not like it’s some run-of-the-mill or scrub team. We’re talking about a franchise that’s built on of sports’ most successful teams over the last two decades.
I’m not saying the Heat will win the Finals. Only God – and possibly David Stern – could know that. I personally hope the Spurs do win. Just so Tim Duncan can land his fifth ring.
Nevertheless, this is a classic overreaction. And one of the biggest problems among sports fans today. They react quickly and have short memories. Hell, one game ago people felt that the Heat had regained control of the series after game three.
In short, sometimes things are better left unsaid. Sometimes it’s just better to wait and see how things play out.
