The Miami Heat aren’t where many expected them to be at this point in the current NBA season. Coming into the year, many expected the Brooklyn Nets and the Milwaukee Bucks to be the out and out favorites in the conference, dominating all the way.
While the Brooklyn Nets and their folks are feeling the need to have to reassure the public that one of their superstars won’t be moved by the coming NBA Trade Deadline, the Bucks haven’t quite hit the stride that many thought they would either.
With the league being ravaged by injury and the Health And Safety Protocols, Milwaukee could lean on that same specific reasoning thus far. To be fair though, the Miami Heat have dealt with those two scenarios just as much as any other team, if not more, and to illustrious results.
With respect to the Chicago Bulls and what they have been able to do thus far on the year, the Miami Heat have not only been the best team in the Eastern Conference through the first half of the year but one of the better teams in the league.
The Miami Heat, again, have the best record in the NBA’s Eastern Conference. That means that Coach Spo is going to Cleveland for the All-Star game.
Record-wise, they currently sit at first in the East, once again.
That, though, comes with a blissful burden for the Miami Heat’s head coach. After the Chicago Bulls were defeated on Sunday by the Philadelphia 76ers, that gave Miami Heat coach, Erik Spoelstra, the leg up at the cutoff when it came to the best conference record.
That, of course, determines the coaching for the All-Star games in either conference. While both of the two Miami Heat main cogs, Coach Spo and Jimmy Butler, headed for Cleveland might prefer the rest over the whole shindig of it all, they’ll both be in attendance.
At least there are always these things though. It’s a chance to continually show the league’s best talent what a great leader Spo is and can be, while there will still be a few off days tucked in between.
