NBA Fans, Relax: It Is Way Too Early to Declare Miami Heat the Champs

I am amazed at how we are in the first week of the NBA regular season and sports analysts are already giving the Miami Heat the NBA title.

The Heat are 3-0. Not 66-0.  Miami has 63 regular season games left to play.

People are forgetting how the Heat collapsed in the NBA Finals earlier this year. They can still do that again.

I'm not questioning whether the Heat are going to Finals this year, I'm just reminding everyone that this is the first week of the season.

The Heat beat the Charlotte Bobcats 96-95 on a late shot by Dwayne Wade with 2.9 seconds left in the game. 

This is after Wade did not play well, going 5-13 FG and only getting 10 points.  He also had a team-high three turnovers.  

His teammate LeBron James scored 35 points with six rebounds and seven assists.  

Do I think both of these guys will reverse roles throughout the season?  Absolutely.  I do think the chemistry will be even better between LeBron, Wade and Chris Bosh.

I do not think they deserve to be given the NBA title after winning three games.  

People are already questioning the Boston Celtics because they are 0-3, and the Clippers are not any better because they just lost to the San Antonio Spurs.

The Celtics will bounce back with their veteran play.  The Clippers will only get better throughout the season with Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and Chauncey Billups getting to know each other better on the court.

For everyone who thinks Miami has won the title already, take a deep breath and just watch some more basketball.  

I do think the Heat will get back to finals, but I'm not sold on them winning it all after three regular season games.

Let's see the season play out and watch how they do in the playoffs, when the pressure is really amped up.
