Larry O’Brien Trophy
Four games are all that stands between the Miami Heat and joining some of the most elite teams in NBA history. The Heat need four wins to successfully win back-to-back championships for the first time in team history.
Unlike Will Ferrell’s character in the movie “Old School,” the Heat are no longer going streaking. The team posted its first loss since February 1 Wednesday night after reeling off 27 straight victories. The loss to the Chicago Bulls isn’t surprising, neither is the Heat’s reaction to the loss.
While Miami Heat superstar LeBron James is the heart and soul of the Miami Heat, perhaps no player is more important to the team outside of LeBron than center Chris Bosh.
When Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade won his first championship at the age of 24, he was on top of the world. Since then, his life has been filled with incredible highs and lows; but everything fell into place Thursday night as he claimed his second world championship.
For the 2012 Miami Heat, their destiny as champions was born in 2008 at the Olympics and then put into place in the summer of July 2010 when LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh joined forces to chase an NBA Championship.
The Miami Heat stand just two victories away from placing another NBA Championship banner in the rafters of the AmericanAirlines Arena. The Heat know the final two wins will be the hardest of the season, but also know that style points don’t matter at this point.
