Why Dwyane Wade is bullish on Heat’s chances to win 2020 title
Miami Heat legend Dwyane Wade believes the 2019-20 team has a really good chance of winning the 2020 title down in Orlando, Florida at Walt Disney World.
Wade, the best player in Heat franchise history, talked about why he’s so bullish on Miami’s chances during a segment on TNT.
“This is what the Miami Heat organization is about,” Dwyane Wade said in his new role as an analyst in TNT’s studio.
“We always talk about the best-conditioned, most professional, hardest working. It gets no more challenging than this. The Miami Heat from day one have been putting these virtual workouts together. They have been making sure their guys have been on the grind. They have stayed connected. I think they are feeling very confident coming into this.
It’s a very deep team, obviously getting Tyler Herro back gives them even more depth off the bench or in the starting lineup. They’re coming into this very healthy as well. I know they’re very confident coming into it, looking at other teams ahead of them, thinking they have a chance. They have a very good record against all these team they played against in the regular season.”
The Heat are in fourth place in the Eastern Conference standings. The team will use the eight seeding games to prepare for the 2020 playoffs by knocking off the rust, as players haven’t played in a game since March.
Once the postseason begins, the Heat will ultimately go as far as All-Stars Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo can lead the team. Since the Heat missed the playoffs last season, South Beach fans are excited to watch their favorite basketball team compete on the NBA’s biggest stage once again.
