    You guys are already done with preseason?

    After witnessing how other defending title teams play on opening night, I'm not too sure what to make of this game. I just hope it's as competitive as possible.

    Excuses... Excuses...

    In 08' the defending champion Celtics won on opening night...

    I'm not seeing where I'm making excuses. It's just the way it goes sometimes. Miami got their *** handed to them in '06 on opening night 107-66 at home. You saw how Dallas got pummeled last year by Miami at home opening day. It's going to be a super surreal scene for the team and the emotion that's going to stem from it can have an effect on play. Not to mention we're going up against the Celtics, a contender in the east, on that very same night.

    I don't believe I'm making an excuse. I just wouldn't be shocked if Miami did indeed lose.

    It was all in jest... From one fan to another... I find it amusing how this forum gets so touchy (not you per say)...

    If I was with the fellas and a diehard Heat fan said "I wouldn't be surprised if we lost because it's opening night and we are the defending champs", I'd be like huhhh... And the trash talk will start... IN JEST...

    Deep down though, do you expect to lose??? The C's are a top 5 team and I think we'll beat you guys, not because it's opening night, just because I believe we have the team to do it...

    Just for the record I'm a Phins fan also (going on 30yrs)...

    I just don't like this first matchup considering we're without our second best defender....

    I hope they ruin the Ring Ceremony... but It will be a hard game..

    Our Bench for the opener is

    Terry,Green,Sully,Darko,Barbosa correct?

    He's not making excuses, lol.

    He's probably the most objective Heat fan.

    whatever the result may be, I'll be sloppy at work wednesday
    The thing we’re going to miss most about Dwight is his farting ability.
    - Glen Davis
    Biyombo told me, "This is my house!" I told him, "You have 7 wins, It’s everybody’s house..."
    - Rudy Gay
    I thought LeBron James was just going to be another addition to help me score
    - Ricky Davis
