After the first 48 minutes of play we know this: The only thing LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are better at than running clear-outs and jacking up bad shots, is shirking responsibility for their losses.
Following their much-hyped squad dropping the debut game to the Boston Celtics 88-80 Tuesday night, these two superstars made it a point to note that “Rome wasn’t built in a day” either. That they needed time to mesh. And, of course, they just had to facetiously mention that they were sorry to disappoint anyone who thought they’d win “72 games or whatever.”
We at The Daily Heat don't need an apology. But Flight 361 should apologize for talking about five rings then introducing itself with that ridiculous WWE entrance to the NBA -- if this is the type of basketball we should expect. I mean, 9 points after the first quarter?
After all, when the Heat popped out with fireworks blasting, music blaring and random images on a huge TV behind them as they pranced around a rising stage like giddy school girls – they didn’t seem to mind all the excess attention.
Sure, Rome wasn’t built in a day. But we’ve seen Rome, and last night’s Heat team ain’t it.
