Is Miami Heated?

And in other urban politics, the anointed Miami triumvirate (LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade) could not deliver the win in their NBA debut against Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and the rest of the Boston Celtics.  The Celtics knocked off the Heat 88-80.  Now, normally this would be just another game in a long line of the 82 games played during an NBA season - however...when you hold an all day special to announce your departure from your former team in Ohio to hype up the fact that you're joining up with two other power house players in Miami, did you honestly think that you had the luxury of losing that first season game?  No, sir.  Anything short of 82 flawless victories now automatically earns you a "man I knew they wasn't gonna be sh*t" award from the millions of NBA fans you pissed off during the Lebron-a-palooza fest.  The moral of the story, if you're going to become a free agent and join up with another team, then just join up with the other team like every other player in the history of the league, put away the balloons and streamers, and handle your business on the court. Save the celebration for AFTER you win the championship.

What's your take on the Miami-Boston game?
Did this loss add more fuel to the critics out there, and if so, is Lebron partly to blame for that?
Is Miami going to win the championship this year?
