LeBron James thinks the Heat can be even better than last season’s team that won the title, but his coach doesn’t want them thinking — or saying — the word “repeat” just yet.
“I’m not even going to use that word,” Spoelstra said Friday during the Heat’s media day at AmericanAirlines Arena. “We have a chance to win another title. Everyone will be gunning for us. Teams have loaded up. It’s a different challenge for us us this year — a completely new journey.”
Do you think Miami will repeat?
We have the potential to be a lot better. And that’s scary.
The goal in Miami clearly is for a team reloaded around James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to make a third straight trip to the NBA Finals and win a second consecutive title. But the Heat took their first step on the eve of training camp toward distancing themselves from last season’s victory over Oklahoma City in five games.
