As always, it appears that the Heat culture is staying firm during this uncertain time. Surely, the leadership of Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra has been highly comforting for his players in recent days.
As for leadership on the roster, Heat All-Star Jimmy Butler is clearly keeping busy. Recently, the star wing claimed that all he has been doing since the NBA has been put on pause is “drinking wine and working out.”
The Heat seemingly entered the 2019-20 season with incredible team chemistry, despite a number of new arrivals. The team chemistry was a big reason why they were sitting comfortably at the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference.
At the moment, the most important thing is that everyone within the Heat organization, and everyone all over the world, does whatever they can do stay healthy and safe.
Once the global community is able to find a way to keep the highly contagious disease at bay, simple joys like basketball will surely return.
