Polladaday: Heat Reach 72 Wins?

Jeff Van Gundy recently said the Miami Heat could break the ’95-96 Chicago Bulls single-season record of 72 wins. Do you think Pat Riley’s squad, with the new Big Three in tow, will top that in ’10-11?

How many games will the Heat win this year?

    71 and i’m not hatin’

  • riggs

    not this season

  • Dweezil

    There’s bound to be some sort of power clash. They also have a weak frontline, and I don’t think that Spoelstra will have the experience to resolve the chemistry issues (not taking anything away from him though). I think that Chris Bosh will have a sook with about his numbers too.
    Only time will tell though.
    Not this season, but the next…

    no more than 65.

    You guys are kidding right? Three of the top seven or eight players in the league on the SAME TEAM. Mike Miller, Udonis Haslem, Chalmers, etc. as an ABOVE AVERAGE supporting cast. This team can win 75 if everyone stays healthy. Offensively they’ll be unguardable. If LeBron can take those sorry-azz cavs to 66 wins, imagine what he can do with this line up. Haters stop hatin you all know eep down how stacked this team is

    67……. max.

    64 wins. Hows that elbow LeBron?

  • http://www.triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    I’m sorry but I will be expecting to see ALOT of “stand around and watch LeBron/Wade” moments in the first 3 months, after that Bosh will have some little injury pesture him in the new year and this team won’t be that far ahead from the pack come the playoffs. 64 wins.

    I can’t wait for November. I don’t care how many wins they get but people are not realizing what Miami has on the floor right now. Wade, Miller, Bron, Haslem and Bosh in crunch time? Dwight won’t kill you because Dwight is a 18 ppg guy. And Haslem/Bosh matches up pretty well with LO/Pau actually. Bosh won’t stop Pau but Pau won’t stop Bosh either. Haslem can handcuff LO. Serious, some you guys need to get to the 5th stage of grief already: acceptance.

    T-Money is right. People are in denial if they think that the heat aren’t a championship team. They’ve two of the best perimeter players of all-time, both players are unselfish players meaning that there won’t be problems of ball hogging. Throw in a top-15 player in bosh, a very good cast of roll players and wallah what do you get; 69 wins.

    66 wins…book it!

  • Scottie Pimpin

    not gonna happen.

  • http://google J-RO

    Its a possibility but it won’t happen……and the same prediction can be said about this years Lakers.

    They won’t break 70 this year. The talent is there, just not the focus. A bunch of single, 20-something multi-millionaires in South Beach will have their share of distractions.

    How funny would it be for the heat to miss the playoffs..no one thinks dats a possibilty?

  • http://www.bulls.com Enigmatic

    ^ If LeBron, Dwyane and Bosh all miss 50 or more games next season due to injuries, yeah, they could miss the playoffs. Other than that, I just can’s see it happening.

  • NBA kid

    I really think the lack of interior defense could hurt them. that being said…66 wins

  • Coney Islander

    Yo did you guys forget LeBron had like 66 wins one year with the CAVS. Are you seriously telling me that he’s playing with 2 all-stars he can’t win 6-7 more games? Let’s be serious.
