The Miami Heat are working towards quite a feat in trying to break the record for most consecutive wins. (The record of 33 games was set by the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers.) If the Heat get the record and win this year’s championship, they will undoubtedly be recognized as one of the greatest teams in NBA history. If they don’t get the record, but still get close to it and end up winning the championship, here will still be some recognition for them as one of the greatest. The Heat are in the midst of a remarkable run. Could this season just be a precursor to the best regular season of all-time? The Heat clearly want greatness. They want to go down in the annals of NBA history as an unstoppable force which won often and with a certain level of superiority over the rest of the teams. Simply put, they want to be considered as the best ever. To be the best ever, they have to surpass the comparisons to the Chicago Bulls of the Michael Jordan era. The Heat can match Hall Of Famers and they have a ‘Big 3′. While the Bulls had Jordan, Scottie Pippen, and Dennis Rodman, the Heat offer up Lebron James, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosh. For the Heat, Ray Allen is also in the mix. osh may not make the HOF, but James, Wade and Allen will. Lebron James will be in a contract year next season, 2013-14, and there is some doubt regarding his return to Miami because he will have so many options, possibly a return to Cleveland or a stint in LA or NY. He knows, as do his teammates, that to make history, it has to be done now. They want a title this season and next, which would give them three championships in a row. Everything the Heat are trying to prove is about winning the comparison to those Jordan Bulls who won three championships in a row two times. If the Heat win it all this season and next season, they will be considered a dynasty. The records that fall along the way among the three championships will reveal the depth of the dynasty. The Heat are in the midst of a remarkable run. They know what they are capable of achieving. They want the Lakers’ record for consecutive wins, they feel like they deserve it, and they’ve worked hard to make their team this good and this impenetrable with the best combination of highlights and chemistry. To come this far on the consecutive games streak must have opened the Heat’s eyes to the possibilities of beating the regular season record of 72 wins held by the 1995-96/Chicago Bulls. Of course,this can’t be done this season, but it is fodder for sure for next season. Either record — the consecutive wins streak or best regular season record — will lift up the profile of the Miami Heat forever. Owning both records along with a couple more championships would put them in a class all their own. *** Howard Alperin is Managing Editor of AmericanizeSoccer.com The post Are Miami Heat Poised to Break 72-10 Next Season? appeared first on Midwest Sports Fans.
BEST OF MAXIM
Things are going swimmingly for the Miami Heat now winners of 27 games in a row. Their latest victim was the lowly Orlando Magic but against the Bobcats, Dwayne Wade couldn't help but ham it up for the camera and interview his teammate LeBron James.
After the Heat's 109-77 pummeling of the Bobcats, Wade took the mic from Heat reporter Jason Jackson and interviewed James...
It would have been ironic had the worst team in the NBA (sorry Charlotte but the record does not lie) beat arguably the best team in the NBA and put an end to their epic winning streak.
That, of course, did not happen.
What did happen was Dwayne Wade got the day off and LeBron James threw down another massive jam after a half court pass from Norris Cole.

The Miami Heat needed a clutch shot by LeBron James to beat the Orlando Magic earlier this month to keep their staggering winning streak going.
Injuries to the Magic's top two scorers will likely keep that from happening this time.
James and the Heat will try to avoid some recent early struggles in order to make things easier on themselves Monday...
THE HEAT IS ON
Video: Wade hijacks Heat's broadcast
With a rather slow day in sports, I'm thankful that Miami Heat star LeBron James is here to show off his aerial exploits.
In the third quarter of Monday night's game against the Orlando Magic, LeBron took a pass from Mario Chalmers and threw down an impressive one-handed dunk:
LeBron James gave Chris Bosh the night off from acting goofy and interrupting teammate interviews with wacky antics, when he hilariously videobombed Ray Allen following the Heat’s 108-94 victory over the Magic. That’s 27 wins in a row for those of you counting at home, and only six from tying the Lakers’ record of 33 wins in a row.
If the Heat fail to break, or even tie, the...

There have been no dramatic half-court shots hit during the NCAA tournament, so an Oklahoma City Thunder fan had to step up in March Madness’ absence.
As long as we’re comparing Justin Dougherty‘s dramatic $20,000 shot to March Madness, that makes Kevin Durant the walk-on benchwarmer who’s sole responsibility is to celebrate as much as possible. Durant jumped on Dougherty...
The Miami Heat won game #26 in a row against the Charlotte Bobcats on Sunday beating them 109-77 in Miami. Dwyane Wade sat this one out nursing a sore knee but took over commentator duties interviewing LeBron James following the game.
Of course it’s not a proper Miami Heat postgame interview without a video bomb from Chris Bosh!
Sidenote. It’s Spring. They’re in Miami...
MIAMI -- If LeBron James is getting tired of doing interviews during his team's winning streak, he isn't showing it.
Of course, it helps when the guy asking the questions is Miami Heat sidekick Dwyane Wade.
If you want know how loose the Heat are these days, check out what unfolded Sunday night following a 109-77 win over the Charlotte Bobcats, Miami's 26th in a row...
LeBron James and the Miami Heat extended their winning streak to 27 consecutive games after Monday’s win over the Orland Magic. James, who finished one rebound short of a triple-double, had two impressive bombs on the night. The first was the one-handed oop that James nearly caught over Beno Udrih. Secondly, James pulled a Bosh and videobombed Ray Allen’s interview.
MIAMI Mercury Morris influence has been expanded. Apparently, hes now also relevant when it comes to basketball streaks.
Earlier this month, when the Miami Heats winning streak had reached 16, forward Shane Battier was asked if the Heat could approach the 22-game run Battiers Houston Rockets had in 2007-08, then the second-longest in NBA history.
Like Mercury Morris (said), Dont...
