Social media postings hint at the possibilities that Miami Heat’s players might exceed expectations this coming season.

Tyler Herro and Jimmy Butler are preparing to stir the pot come October with their intensity on and off the court.

Davon Reed isn’t officially on the roster, but his basketball profile bears an uncanny resemblance to that of Josh Richardson coming out of college.

  • Draft pick: Reed - 32nd in 2017 vs Richardson - 40th in 2015
  • Anthro specs: Reed – 205 lb, 6’6”, 7’0” wingspan vs Richardson – 200 lb, 6’6”, 6’11” wingspan
  • College accolades: Reed – All-Defense ACC vs Richardson – All-Defense SEC
  • 4th season college 3P%: Reed – 39.7% vs Richardson – 35.9%

Dion Waiters looks buff as he seeks to prove his lottery pick wasn’t a fluke.

Goran Dragic is back for another crack at having an All-Star and All-NBA season with Chris Bosh in the building ready to help.

Let’s not forget the potential all the Heat players possess when they’re healthy and motivated.

Highlight clips always look good, but for some reason (Jimmy Butler perhaps?) this upcoming campaign feels different than the past few disappointing ones.
