Looking back at the three recent NBA Finals series in Miami Heat history

At the peak of the Miami Heat, there were four consecutive seasons in the NBA Finals, so it is impossible to underestimate the team of coach Spoelstra.

After a decade the Los Angeles Lakers finally returned to the NBA Finals, with the Miami Heat even taking six years to recreate it.

With tradition and top stars in the squad, the Lakers are the better-rated team, but in the past decade coach, Spoelstra’s army has been an undesirable name. Let’s take a look at five times the Miami Heat has entered the NBA Finals, including four consecutive seasons.

NBA Finals 2011/12

LeBron James has lost twice in the NBA Finals, so he set a great deal of determination in the 2011/12 season to win the first championship of his career. The Miami Heat reached a 46/20 record before facing OKC in the final series.

Oklahoma City Thunder then owned the big names of the current NBA such as Kevin Durant, James Harden, Russell Westbrook or Serge Ibaka, but they were a young team and quickly failed after 5 games.

Owning a set of 3 LeBron James – Dwyane Wade – Chris Bosh, Miami Heat also has a bright addition called Ray Allen, it is this star who has thrown the decisive throw in game 6 thereby creating a comeback period for the red army.

LeBron James won the championship for 2 years in a row and both received the Finals MVP title with excellent performances.

It was the last season LeBron James played for the Miami Heat before returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers, and in all four years, he took his team to the final match. However, Kawhi Leonard helped the Spurs have sweet revenge with a 4-1 victory. The Big3 era ended after LeBron left.

NBA Finals 2019/20

When the game was not yet taking place, all the judgments were only predictive, LeBron James was a major contributor to the four consecutive seasons of his appearance in the Finals of the Miami Heat, but now he appears in a new shirt to match. head with his old team.

Lakers is a team with big stars and seasoned experience, in contrast, the Miami Heat is a young team built with solidarity. Between red and yellow, between experience and youth, Lakers vs Heat promises to bring an attractive Final series.

Golden State Warriors and teams stand outside the NBA 2019/20 season

After the NBA has announced plans to restart with 22 teams, playing from July 31, 8 teams will be pushed out of the 2019-20 season.

Eight regular Season matches, a Playoffs round with 7 series matches like the previous seasons and 22 participating teams will be what appear in the NBA after the restart of the season on July 31.

In the presence of all 30 teams, the NBA faces a higher risk of infection. So not everyone is chosen. But if there are only 16 teams, the number of matches for the entire NBA 2019-20 season will not be enough and this is a violation of the tournament’s contract with the broadcasters as well as sponsors.

Trae Young and Stephen Curry are part of the team that has to say goodbye to NBA 2019-20

Finally, 22 teams with enough achievements including 16 teams in the Playoffs group and 5 Western teams and 1 Eastern team will come to Orlando, competing together at Walt Disney World Resort. This will leave 8 teams outside the game including as follows.

Golden State Warriors – Achievements 15-50

Cleveland Cavaliers – Achievements 19-46

Minnesota Timberwolves – Achievements 19-45

Atlanta Hawks – Achievement 20-47

Detroit Pistons – Achievement 20-46

New York Knicks – Achievements 21-45

Chicago Bulls – Achievements 22-43

Charlotte Hornets – Achievements 23-42

Prominent among the 8 teams to sit at home is probably Golden State Warriors, the collective has had 5 consecutive seasons in the NBA Finals. Unfortunately for the 2018 champion, injuries to pillars like Klay Thompson or Stephen Curry forced “Dub Nation” into the road to rebuilding the squad.

The Atlanta Hawks and Minnesota Timberwolves are also notable names with two stars, Trae Young and D’Angelo Russell. Unfortunately for the duo, they will have to try next season. Sharing from journalist Shams Charania, although the NBA allows 30 teams to come to Orlando to play, many will refuse to attend.

D’Angelo Russell will say goodbye to the season soon

The intensive competition will require a lot of preparation, especially among these is physical training about 3 weeks before the competition. After that, teams will have to isolate 14 days in Orlando before entering the training camp.

For teams that cannot compete in the Playoffs, it is unreasonable for them to prepare within 2 months and only play 6-8 regular Season matches. It is unclear what the plans for these 8 teams will be, but their offseason has officially started today.
