National Basketball Association clubs are opening their pre-season training camps this week, and the team getting the most attention is the Miami Heat. During the offseason, the Heat acquired all-stars Chris Bosh and LeBron James, who joined Miami’s all-star guard Dwyane Wade on a team that’s attracting interest not just in Florida and the USA, but all over the world.
James Aniebiet, writing from Nigeria on the Sonny Side of Sports Facebook page, says, “I’m eager to see how the trio will set the season on fire. Could the Heat win something this coming season?”
Well James, I have doubts that the Heat can dethrone Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers. Bosh and LeBron have never won a NBA title, while Wade won his only championship in 2006. I have doubts about Bosh, LeBron and Wade sharing the basketball, although D. Wade says, “if ego was going to be a problem, I don’t think all of us would be … playing for the same team.”
This is a team that basketball fans will be watching closely during the upcoming NBA season. In the words of Miami head coach Erik Spoelstra, “this team was not built to go under the radar.”
