LeBron James said,
“Not 2, not 3, not 4, not 5, not 6, not 7. Hey, and when I say that when I say that, I really believe it. I’m not just up here blowing smoke at none of these fans, because that’s not what I’m about. I’m about business. And we believe we can win multiple championships.”
I understand the confidence, you don’t want to come to a new team and say that you will try to win one championship. You want to win multiple, you want to be borderline arrogant with your statement.
The Miami Heat disposed of the New York Knicks this playoff season in dominate fashion. Although it should have been a sweep, the Knicks posed no threat, due to multiple injuries and chemistry issues. Now the Heat are faced with an intriguing matchup. The Indiana Pacers are a different type of team, no superstars, nothing flashy, just basketball. How will they do?
Well… Game 1 proved to be no problem for the Heat winning easily 95-86. Although they won the game with no issue, they lost a key player Chris Bosh. Chris Bosh, although he has faced many criticisms, averages 18 ppg and 8 rpg. Although he doesn’t prove as dominate in games as his teammates Lebron and Dwyane Wade, he stills bring a certain flash that helps his team get to the next level. Rebounding and scoring in certain situations has been his skill since coming from the Toronto Raptors where he was the number 1 threat.
Unfortunately for Bosh this is what was reported earlier by SportsNation.com…
Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh has been sidelined indefinitely with an abdominal strain as his team prepares for Game 2 of its Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Pacers.
What does this mean for the Heat? Can teams like the Indiana Pacers, Boston Celtics or even the San Antonio Spurs/Oklahoma City Thunder. Take advantage of this important injury? With the pressure that the Heat have put on themselves, will it be a failure if the they don’t deliver a championship this season?
