They beat them. That’s it, shut up. The Washington Wizards….excuse me….the 1-13 Washington Wizards beat the World Champion Miami Heat, 105-101. Ouch. And while we all witness the media scrambling to make excuses for Miami, we take a long hard look at the facts about this beatdown. John Wall did not  play LeBron James and Dwyane Wade did not sit out LeBron James put up his first triple double The Miami Heat allowed the 1-13 Washington Wizards to drop 105 points on them LeBron James choked and missed TWO go ahead shots RGIII sat courtside and witnessed the embarrassment These are the facts people. Now, while Stephen A. Smith will have you believe that the Heat just rolled over on this one in hopes of preservation for a game that’s TWO days away, we know better. The truth is that Miami has it’s flaws, whether it be mental weakness or no inside presence but the flaws are there. And teams are learning how to expose these flaws. The Wizards predicted their victory the day before the game and they came through. They defeated a healthy, energetic Heat team. Don’t get it twisted. The East is deeper now this season, so don’t expect Miami to stroll into to the Finals, they will have their work cut out for them just getting to the ECF. So what does this mean for us fans? Many more post game interviews of LeBron James squirming with frustration as he answers legit questions about his and his teams’ flaws on the court.
