With two NBA Championships in four straight trips to the Finals, most folk in the NBA community would be hesitant to call LeBron’s time with the Heat as anything other than a success.
But what about underwhelming? According to former league star Paul Pierce, LeBron and the Heat actually underachieved in their four-year run as the NBA’s premier superteam.
It is true that the Heat got saved by Ray Allen against the Spurs in 2013. The Heat were down 3-2 before Allen nailed that shot — and then they were finally able to get past San Antonio in Game 7. Had Ray missed it, the Heta might’ve only walked away with a single title win.
