“They will break the single-season record. And I think they have a legit shot at the Lakers’ 33-game [winning] streak, as well,” NBA Analyst Jeff Van Gundy said. “They will never lose two games in a row this year.”
Van Gundy has recently altered his comment by adding “except for the 8th and the 9th game” to the last sentence.
His comments were repeated by the best minds in NBA coaching and analysis, and even when a specific number of wins was not given, the awe that basketball minds across the country held towards the new Superteam indicated a belief in an unprecedented season for the Miami Heat.
“You look at that roster, and you tell me where the holes are,” said Spurs coach Gregg Popovich. It was assumed that Mr. Popovich prefaced that statement with ‘Besides an inside presence or any sort of point guard’, but that has not been confirmed as of the writing of this article.
The Heat are taking an unorthodox route towards establishing the greatest regular season in NBA history, however, by getting a lot of the (maximum) 9 losses out of the way early. The Heat have lost 4 games as of printing, with 10 games played. …
“I think we want to get rid of a lot of the nine losses early,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra told us. “We want to have momentum going into the playoffs, so we’ll probably lose a couple of more in the next few weeks. I’d like to finish the season on a 50-2 run, and peak just when we’re getting into the post-season.”
The Heat will definitely go at worst 68-5 for the remainder of the season and achieve the best record of all time, based on the expert analysis provided by the smartest people in the NBA and at ESPN. It’s possible that they could drive towards the finish of the season on a 73 game winning streak and end up at 78-4.
Don’t laugh, this team has already celebrated the championship with smoke machines and a massive pep-rally at the American Airlines Arena before the season even started. They would not put up that sort of fanfare without being able to back it up. That would look fucking stupid.
