Watch LeBron James and Dwyane Wade Get Acrobatic on the Break in Preseason

The defending champion Miami Heat were in New Orleans Thursday night. It's preseason ball, but it looked anything but from a team that's hitting the ground running.


First-quarter action, about six minutes in, Jrue Holiday throws a lazy pass to Anthony Davis. LeBron James swats it, dribbles down court. One-bounce pass to D-Wade, who gives it right back and perfectly timed. LeBron dunks with authority.


These are two guys in lockstep. This is a team that is well aware of all the talk against them, aware of the targets on their backs.


And it's only the preseason. The regular season should scare you.
