Currently only 3 NBA teams ever Three-peat a total of 5 times (Lakers,Celtics and Bulls, franchises with very rich histories). An NBA team capable of doing so is a very dominant team, and the teams able to Three-peat have a sort of mystique shrouding their legacy.
NBA Finals (National Basketball Association):
1952–54 Minneapolis Lakers
1959–66 Boston Celtics (eight-peat)
1991–93 Chicago Bulls
1996–98 Chicago Bulls
2000–02 Los Angeles Lakers
Three-peat is a contraction of the words three and repeat, which has been trademarked for commercial use by retired basketball coach Pat Riley; the active trademarks in force are registered under numbers 1552980, 1878690, and 1886018. (A fourth registration, #1977620, expired in 2003.) It is used either as a verb or noun used in American sports to refer to winning a third championship in a row.
They always seem to dominate the West. So its all based on if they can reach the finals.
Last year, only the Pacers stood a chance of taking them out before the Finals.
This year, I believe 3 teams exist that can take out the Heat. Pacers/Nets/Bulls. But will they play all 3? or even 2 of them? They will have to face one of them for sure.
So i'd say they have a 95% of 3peating if they face only 1 elite east team.
75% if having to face 2 elite east teams.
then 70% if having to face all 3 (which is unlikely because i doubt one of them will be an 8th seed)
We need to use Bosh more in the pick and roll, and actually get him to go towards the basket.
His role in Miami has actually caused him to decline as a player. He has no interest in attacking the hoop these days. And he should, since he has the first step and quickness to beat just about any big man to the hoop.
If Lebron and Bosh can set up a nice one-two game, then it'd increase our chances.
