I’m having one of those moments where I’m laughing cuz I’m frustrated with how my team is playing.
I mean I know their going to be alright, but this just pisses me off when I’m watching my team play and their not playing up to their potential. Where is the effort MIAMI!!??
Now, I’m actually not doing too bad because in the past I’ve yelled at the screen, but this time around, I didn’t want to stress.
I actually took time out to just sit and look and watch how my team was performing out there on the court and there wasn’t anything to say. And when they made a few plays, I didn’t cheer a whole lot because I understand where Miami is and how good they are. I expect them to get steals and dunk and shoot well and pass the ball well and be one unit on defense. They are a championship caliber team.
Why wouldn’t I expect that. This game against the Knicks, I hope was a wake up call. I don’t know which is worse, losing to the Wizards on the road or losing to the Knicks at home in a blowout game. Both seem pretty bad to me.
But then I come back to last season when Miami had these woes and the good thing about what they went through then is that they came out. We are in a defensive identity crisis right now.
Injuries have taken a toll, but every team has that, so that doesn’t count. I’m a basketball player, so I’m not on that right now. I try to take out all biasness and just look at the facts.
HEAT, ya’ll gotta get it together. The flaws and weaknesses are sticking out like a sore thumb. Its time to address and progress, not digress.
I’m not in panic mode or anything like that, but this is what is and what I’m feeling right now. As a Heat fan, I want to see my team do well and to show night in and night out, their superiority over other teams. But, it is a long season and there is still time to fix it before the playoffs because thats when it will matter most.
My Heat are going through right now and I’m going through it with them. Battier, Chalmers, Cole, UD, get healthy. Wade keep improving, know you’ve been putting in extra work to get back to your original form, LBJ, keep doing your thing you’re on a roll, Bosh, you’ve had a couple of bad games but I know you’ll bounce back. Shuttlesworth, you are proving why you are a good candidate for being a 6th man, keep doing what you do. Rashard, where you at man!? You were doing things in earlier games, but then you became stagnant? Whats going on?
And I’m not saying this because of these last 2 games. Heat have been mingling with fire for awhile now and the fire has caught up. Its time to get back to playing our game, playing to our identity and playing up to our potential. Defense wins the ships, that hasn’t changed and never will.
