I've said this before but Miami is not even as good as they've been in the past and young upcoming teams in the East can bring a surprise challenge to Miami as the 2012 Pacers did. In fact I think Atlanta, Toronto, and Washington are either at that level already or close, especially Washington and Toronto.
Maybe it is just people not paying attention to the season but those teams actually were playing at a good clip for some time now. I guess they will only get respect after the fact like the 2012 Pacers.
