The Miami Heat have been among the best teams in the NBA since opening night. No matter what adversity was thrown their way, they took it in stride and just kept chugging along.
A lot of credit should be given to Pat Riley in the front office and Erik Spoelstra and his coaching staff for the job that they have done. They identify players that will fit the culture they have in place and every move they made this offseason has worked out.
It has resulted in Miami sitting atop the Eastern Conference with a record of 47-24. They are two games clear of the Milwaukee Bucks to ensure that the road to the NBA Finals in the conference goes through South Beach.
While that is assuredly where all of the organization’s focus is, there have already been some talks about what the Heat will do in the offseason. Some reports indicate that they are going to look to swing a big trade to add another All-Star to the mix.
