I don't even think a pompous show like what the Heat did would've put a bigger target on our backs. We are no sleeper team
I think it adds fuel to the fire. Of course LA is a team everyone will want to beat. I think part of being a good sport is to not talk trash like that though. I'd rather see a statement like 82-0 though. I don't mind an athlete wanting to win every game.... they should want to. At least that type of statement would be a little sarcastic in a way. Whereas imagine if the Lakers have 72 wins and have just a few games left. Those teams are going to be even more determined to beat LA just because of statements like that.
