There is not a team in the league at the current moment that creates sucha controversy as that of the Miami Heat. I should say this instead. There isn’t a player in the league that creates as much controversy and hatred as LeBron James. He creates an instantaneous reaction — positive or negative — and teh playoffs is where the light will be shining bright on him and the Heat.
The NBA is calling them to triumph in the playoffs, but the question remains:
Will they answer the call?
There is a great possibility that the Heat will walk away from another year without a ring, so will the season be a failure??
Ira Winderman posed such a question to the duo:
The season won’t be a failure,” James said. “You put too much work into a season to automatically call it a failure, but it would be a disappointment. This is our goal. This is what we’ve come together for. A failure is a strong word. We commit ourselves and we dedicate our season, we work hard every day and to automatically say it’s a failure, I think that’s a big word. But I think it’d be a disappointment, because that’s what you work hard for every day.”
“I say yes,” (Wade) said. “There’s only one champion. It’s a failure for every other team. If you don’t win a championship, you had a failed year.”
Wade has the PERFECT mind frame going into the playoffs. The goal of every team in the postseason is to bring that trophy home, unfortunately, only a few teams are true contenders.
It would especially be a failure for a man, LeBron, that is chasing a title.
