Beat the Heat....How about No.

Teams who don't play D, don't make adjustments and live and die bye jumpers don't win titles.

Simple when Chips are down Heat can lock down any team in the League, they're that damn good. Reminds me of back in the 90's when year in and year out we deluded ourselves into thinking Ewing and co. were finally good enough to topple MJ's Bulls.

The only team that has the smarts and discipline to potentially challenge the Heat this Spring are the Spurs, although it remains to be seen if they can get out of the dog eat dog Western conference.

Forget Heat, decent season for NYK would be getting out of the first round, successful season would be anything beyond the second round.
