Following their easy four game sweep of the Milwaukee Bucks, the defending NBA champion Miami Heat told reporters that they are ready for the real playoff games to begin.
“Hell yea we’re ready” said forward LeBron James. “I guess it’s good that we had some warm up games first, but we want to get started defending our title.”
Heat coach Erik Spoelstra was more diplomatic when referring to their first round opponent.
“I don’t know which developmental league they found the Bucks in, but I want to thank them for playing some warm up games with us. I think it’s a great way for our team to get ready for some real playoff games.”
At present the Heat are awaiting the winner of the Nets-Bulls series to determine their second round opponent, guaranteeing at least four more games until the Miami Heat will face a real NBA team.
