With LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, there is no way the Miami Heat can lose. There is just no way that they’ll fail to win the NBA title every year as long as those three are together. I can just see LeBron now, telling a packed arena in Miami how many championships this threesome can win in the future. This was not long after he had a one-hour special on ESPN to tell everyone where he would decide to sign.
After all, whoever signed him would be guaranteed to dominate the NBA…right?
Well, the Heat fell to the Chicago Bulls on Sunday for what was their fourth straight loss and five out of six. They haven’t beaten a team with a winning record in more than a month. They are like the Philadelphia Flyers without the skates.
“When you put your heart and your soul, your blood, your sweat, your tears into something and you want something so bad and it just slips from you by one point, two points, three points, 30 points, just to come up short again and again, it hurts,” Heat forward Chris Bosh said.
And the worst part of all of this? The players are now weeping in the locker room. Head coach John Boehner Erik Spoelstra said tears were shed after this crushing regular season loss.
LeBron apparently had an emotional speech for his teammates after the game that we don’t really give a rat’s ass about.
“I’m not going to continue to fail them late in the games,” James said. “I put a lot of blame on myself [Sunday] and telling the guys that I keep failing them late in games and I won’t continue to do that.”
We really don’t come down on athletes or any grown man that cries. But, it’s still the regular season. You are still in third place in the Eastern Conference. It’s not like your season just ended.
Then again, if this is what it has come to, maybe it did.
