Do you think they can still sneak into the playoffs? As of right now they have the 8th seed, 1 game ahead of NJ, and 2 games ahead of NY. If they do make the playoffs and get Wade back around that time, do you think they can advance to the next round, even if Detroit is their opponent? Discuss.
no... they are pretty much done with Wade... no consistent scorer, no consistent passer... no YOUTH!
Kopono seems to be solid now, certainly not a star. Every Heat fan was ranting and raving about the improvement Dorrell Wright was making early in the season. Can he play SG?
I still see them making the playoffs, but not going anywhere, unless their veterans really surprise me.
EDIT: After looking at their record, I change my mind. I didn't realize they were 26-28 at this point. I'm about 50/50 on them making the playoffs. 54 games are done, that leaves 28... Teams don't usually make the playoffs without winning 40-45 or so. They'd have to win half their games to get in the playoffs with that figure.
For all the non believers out there heat are climbing the charts. in less than a month they have gone from "will they make the playoffs" to the next question, how long till they take over the division?
