Miami seemed likely to make the playoffs this season once it acquired All-Star Jimmy Butler in a huge trade last summer.
But no one outside of the Miami area expected the team to do anything beyond appearing in the postseason.
Instead, the Heat rolled the heavily favored Milwaukee Bucks in the second round of the playoffs, then took care of the Celtics in the next round.
The Heat will have their work cut out for them if they’re to win their fourth NBA title, as they will have to overcome LeBron James, Anthony Davis and the Los Angeles Lakers.
If the Heat slow down the pace against L.A., and especially if young studs such as Bam Adebayo and Tyler Herro continue to impress, perhaps an even bigger celebration will be held in South Florida in a couple of weeks.
