Well, it's Christmas Eve (from where I live), and I have nothing to do, so I decided to make a Christmas wish list for the Miami Heat and for all the Heat fans out there. Most of the wishes I made are for the game against the Lakers on Christmas. But not really all of them. So without further ado, this Christmas, I wish for:
1. Good Health for everyone.
The most basic wish. I wish for all the Heat players to be healthy for the remainder of the season. And good health for everyone here at PIM too. Let's not get the Christmas colds now.
2. Wade to be healthy and ready to go against L.A.
Dwyane Wade has a sore knee and is questionable for Saturday, which sucks. What better gift for him than to have him healthy and 100% against the Lakers? Oh yeah, for him to score a ton of points against them :)
3. Another triple-double for LeBron.
LeBron James is pretty bummed about having to play on Christmas day. So I wish for him to put up a great performance against the Lakers. It'd give his children something great to watch while he's away.
4. Mike Miller to start hitting his shots.
Mike has't exactly been shooting the lights out yet. But since it's Christmas, I think it would be a nice present for him and for us to see those 3 pointers go down for the Heat.
5. Dexter Pittman to get some playing time.
I like Pittman and I think he can really contribute a lot. He's a BIG (literally) presence down low and it would serve him well if he can show us some of that during the game. It would help boost his confidence and boost the coach's trust in him.
6. Chris Bosh to keep up the good work.
He's been pretty consistent with his scoring and rebounding and that's all I could really ask for.
7. The game on Saturday to be an instant classic.
When you have two of the top teams in the NBA face off against each other, not to mention arguably the three best basketball players on the planet sharing the same court, it's bound to be a great game. I wish for this game to get me off of my seat and keep me on the edge of it at the same time.
8. The Miami Heat to win, obviously.
This is pretty self-explanatory. Not just the game though. But pretty much every game that follows. They won against Phoenix. I'd like to see that as the start of a brand new and, hopefully, record breaking win-streak.
9. For me to finally get to watch the Heat play in person and get Wade's autograph.
Alright, this one's pretty much impossible seeing as I'm still a minor and I live thousands of miles away. But hey, it's Christmas!
Well, that's it. I'd like to know what you guys want to wish for the Heat this Yuletide season.
MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HANUKKAH, HAPPY KWANZAA and HAPPY FESTIVUS to the Heat, all you guys here at Peninsula is Mightier and to Heat fans all over the world. And may the Lord be with us this Christmas day.
