The Miami Heat have certainly had their fair share of obstacles to overcome so far this season.
The NFL and NHL held their respective All-Star games last weekend, but that doesn’t mean basketball took a back seat.

While the Miami Heat have had their share of issues so far this season, their Tuesday night opponent has dealt with a bit more.
Despite living in the post-LeBron era, the Miami Heat are not lacking superstar talent.
Last season was plagued by injuries to the league’s most noted stars, but this offseason proved to be full of action: the draft, big announcements, players sporting new jerseys, coaching changes and the controversies – just to name a few.
