4 bold predictions for Miami Heat entering 2020-21 NBA season

Last season, the Miami Heat were not a team a lot of people picked to win the Eastern Conference and make it to the NBA Finals, but in the Orlando Bubble, anything was possible. The Heat was not the best team in the Eastern Conference during the regular season last year, but as soon as they got to the NBA bubble, things quickly changed.

Jimmy Butler was on a mission to lead the Heat through the Eastern Conference Playoffs and reach the NBA Finals and he did not disappoint. He averaged 22.2 points, 6.5 rebounds and 6.0 assists in the playoffs in Orlando for the Heat and scored a playoff career high 40-points against the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 3 of the NBA Finals. 

Butler’s performance in Game 3 of The Finals will go down as one of the greatest solo performances in Finals history as he became the third player ever to have a 40-point triple-double in the NBA Finals, joining the likes of Jerry West (1969) and LeBron James (2015) as the only other players to do so. 

What made last year’s Miami Heat team so special was because of how well they “spread the wealth” on offense and how everyone on their roster played with a “chip on their shoulder.” Not only was Jimmy Butler criticized before going to the Miami Heat with people saying he was a cancer to any locker room and was not a good teammate, but he absolutely gained the respect of everyone with the way he led this Heat team.

Now, heading into the 2020-21 NBA season, the Miami Heat have some high expectations and are going to do what it takes to make it back to the NBA Finals and have another chance to claim their fourth NBA championship since 2006. 

Let’s take a look at 4 bold predictions for the Miami Heat entering the 2020-21 NBA season.
