What has propelled the Heat from a very good offensive team capable of turning it on and off whenever they deem it necessary? What is the secret behind their current win streak that has hit the staggering number of 27? Sure LeBron’s play has been stellar, and everyone has been filling their roles from the fourth spot on the roster through down to the tenth, but the key to their continued sustained success could be somehow connected to their video bombs.
Chris Bosh has been humorously launching himself into his teammates’ post game celebratory interviews for awhile, and has upped his game during the streak. Not happy with being the best player on the planet, LeBron has responded with some of the all-time best video bombs. At times the “humor” the Heat employ has felt contrived, but a few of these have spawned some insta-classic gifs.
Could this camaraderie be the key to their success? Maybe in the locker room instead of drawing up advanced offensive schemes that feature constant motion, and defense that is predicated on help and positioning, the Heat’s Big 3 are mapping out how they will video bomb the next dude.
Borrowing from the most recent video bomb, we've given each video bomb a grade out of 5 LeBron faces.
