Seeing the conference playoffs - it is apparent to me what a long way we have to go to get any where near to this level of play.
I think that the Heats 2nd unit of Cole, Allen, Miller, Battier & Birdman would easily win a 5 game series against the Wizards ---- maybe even go 3-0.
Getting to the 8th seed next season will be a start but all we can hope for is forcing a game 6 or 7.
I think that anyone we get in the draft will probably take a year or two to become a force. We need some of the guys that we have to make a major leap in their games. Jan, Sing, Book and Kevin need to become what we envisioned when we drafted them. Another year of trying to watch them struggle and I'll have to start attending AA because they can easily drive a fan like me to drink to excess.
