Its been a bad transition for Miami in their post LeBron era. We’re past the All Star break and the Heat are sitting on the edge of their seventh placed seat with a nervous twitch.
While the rocky start to the season has most in Miami disappointed there has been light shining down to the clouds. Rays of light like the discovery of Hassan Whiteside or Riley being Riley and getting Goran Dragic via trade. A strong push, and being in the East can guarantee the Heat won’t miss the playoffs after 4 straight NBA Finals appearances.
Or can it? The sky is cloudy again in the Sunshine State. Chris Bosh is out for the remainder of the year after doctors discovered blood clots on his lungs. Now first and foremost I as a writer and a person am sending my prayers to CB and his family. I wish you a speedy recovery and can’t wait to see that pretty mid range jumper again. Best wishes #HeatNation
So now where does Miami go from here? Without Bosh on the floor Miami is vulnerable. Does Dwayne Wade have enough in the tank to carry this team? Newly acquired Goran Dragic, is he ready to lead this team? The questions are weighing heavy on me so I can only imagine how how head coach Erik Spoelstra feels.
Dragic, Wade and Whiteside’s natural abilities should be more then enough to keep this team in playoff contention, especially in the Eastern Conference. With no viable players that can be picked up and be a impact immediately, rotations are going to be tricky as well. Wade must find the fountain of youth because you can see his heart and the fight in his eyes but you can also see his body just breaking down as you watch.
Coach Spo- the ball is in your court. Chris Bosh- prayers to a speedy recovery and Goran Dragic, along with your brother Zoran- welcome to Miami and always remember this a “HEAT NATION“
