The Miami Heat are currently playing some of the worst basketball they’ve played in three plus seasons. Losers of five of six, the Heat look relatively average, so much so that LeBron James hinted the season could be over for the Heat if they don’t snap out of their funk.
“We’ve been here before. It has been a while, but we’ve been here before, and this moment will either define our season or end our season. … We always have one defining moment, and this is it right here for us.”
While I get what James is attempting to convey here, that’s a bit over dramatic.
With just a few weeks left in the regular season, the Heat are falling out of the second seed and will have a likely first round playoff matchup with either the Brooklyn Nets or Charlotte Bobcats.
Sure, the Nets could potentially give them a little trouble, but not enough to beat them in a seven-game series. And the Bobcats? Not a chance.
So while the Heat have hit a rough patch, it’s certainly not going to end their season.
