Rest easy for now doubters, the Miami Heat missed out on the gold. However, after a year under their belt don't expect the same.

Expectations were through the roof last year for the rebuilt Miami club. Rarely in history have we seen a team with so much capability and talent form together like this. As expected, the Heat took much criticism and hatred from opposing fans, but that's understandable.
