Go ahead and count the Miami Heat out. You might regret it. This team is toughness personified. The Heat don’t care if they’re the eighth seed. They will give any NBA team problems.
This group feels like they’ve got a great chance to win an NBA championship. That mentality is most embodied by Jimmy Butler.
As a result of his heroics, the Heat took out the top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks in just five games. We don’t know if they’ll win the series.
Moreover, we certainly don’t know if they’ll win the championship. What we do know is that the Heat are as likely to make a trade for a star player this summer as any team in the NBA.
An attainable option that stands out for the Heat to take things to the next level could be Kyrie Irving as he’s set to reach free agency this summer.
Could that Heat pull off a sign-and-trade for Irving with the Dallas Mavericks?
