Miami Heat Should Be Punished for Giving Up on Season
Should the Miami Heat be punished for the garbage they are producing this season?
They have set records for all of the wrong reasons, and appear to have completely given up on this season and looking ahead to the draft.
First, the Heat lost 15 games in a row, and more recently Miami scored just 54 points in their loss to the Toronto Raptors 96-54, which is the 3rd lowest point total in the shot clock era, only the 1998-99 Bulls (49 points against Miami) and the 2002-03 Nuggets (53 points against Detroit) have scored fewer points in a game.
But on Sunday the Miami Heat set their own record by making just 17 of their 59 field goal attempts in their loss to Boston, which is the lowest all time in the shot clock era.
For the third time in franchise history the Miami Heat have lost 60 games in a season. With nine games remaining, its all-time record of futility could be eclipsed.
Dwyane Wade has a legitimate reason to not be playing with all the problems he has had with his shoulder in the last two seasons, but the Marion injury is suspicious.
The Heat want to guarantee that number one pick in the draft this year, to most likely add Michael Beasley to their line up. Marion will most definitely opt out of his contract at the end of the season and search for a new team, so are the heat allowing him to fake an injury so they don’t have to play him?
They now have a good excuse to play these no name players like Blake Ahearn and Kasib Powell which has resulted in them losing 60 games this season already.
The Heat should be given a lower pick in the draft because they have given up on the season, and if given the choice wouldn’t bother turning up on game day.
Pride means nothing to this Heat team.
Other teams like New York and Minnesota are still playing as hard as they can and trying to improve, yet the Miami Heat coach Pat Riley, went on a three-day trip to evaluate top college players.
When a team has no hope of making the play-offs, you would think it would motivate them to finish the season well and try to improve as much as possible before next season. Not the Miami Heat.
What will they be like this time next season?
One draft pick wont change a team straight away. They could yet again be throwing games and faking injuries to get two number one picks in consecutive years.
