10 Big Expectations for the Miami Heat This Season

The Miami Heat have started off the 2011-12 campaign with a bang by winning their first three games of the year. This, of course, is much better than the rocky start of last season where Miami struggled to show their combined talents.

Miami has played five straight quarters with efforts below what they are capable of, but they are still pulling off wins in the process. A win is a win in the books no matter how pretty it is.

After dismantling the champion Dallas Mavericks to start the season, they have shown signs of both flaws and perseverance.

Now with that out of the way, what can we expect of a team that is considered to be the early title favorites in the NBA?

My guess is big things...

While some of these expectations are not bold, they are key points and aspects Miami will have to realize and meet to take their game to the next level.

Here are 10 of these expectations, but feel free to add your own via comment.
