NBA Preview: Can Anyone Beat the Heat?

Hubie Brown agrees. “The Heat performed a magic act. They took major risks to allow others to become free agents at the end of last season, once they got James and Wade, they were able to get under the cap by convincing them to take less money. Never has this been done since the cap came into existence. There was nothing illegal here and nothing shady. They did everything by the book and the players had to sacrifice in order to make it happen.”

Each of the big three inked a five-year deal. Given that much time together, they should expect to win multiple titles. Anything less would be considered a failure, and there will be plenty of people to remind them of that.
