Top 10 signs that the Heat are being overhyped

Noted World Wide Lemur basketball carnie Jeff van Gundy went on the record as saying that the Miami Heat are likely to break the Jordan Bulls regular season 72-win record. Somehow, this is actually being taken seriously, or at least reported in decent society. Color me skeptical, for the following reasons...

10) The best regular season team in history really should do better than Carlos Arroyo and Mario Chalmers at the point

9) It's hard to see how Erik Spoelstra will keep them motivated, playing defense, or sacrificing numbers

8) When your best shot blockers are your small forward and shooting guard, you might not do too well against teams with talented bigs

7) In two of the last four years, Dwayne Wade played 51 games, and in general, guys do not get less injury-prone as they get older

6) One suspects that LeBron James might be just a little bit bored of having the best regular-season record

5) In the last four years, Chris Bosh missed 45 games

4) One suspects that their opponents will be just a wee bit up for their games

3) The best regular season team in history really should do better than Joel Anthony, Jamaal Magloire and Dexter Pittman at center

2) As good as Mike Miller might be, and as many open looks as he's going to get, it's not as if he's ever been on a team that's won a damn thing

1) Even if they are all that and a bag of chips, they'll still coast for the last 2-3 months, since the winning playoff teams now all take off for the last 2-3 months
