The Miami HEAT’s season did not start as many would have hoped, as they lost 88-80 to the Boston Celtics. Dwyane Wade and LeBron James were making uncharacteristically bad turnovers (14 combined). The old Big Three of the Boston Celtics, playing under the franchise’s 17 title banners, beat the new Big Three of James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. The Heat, though, knew it would take time to jell. “It’s a feel-out process,” James said. “When you have so many options, it’s something I’m not accustomed to, having that many threats out on the court at the same time.” “This is one of 82,” said Wade, whose preseason action was limited to the first three minutes because of a strained right hamstring. “Sorry if everyone thought we were going to go 82-0. It just ain’t happening.” King James, who scored a game high 31 points, debuted his latest Nike sneakers – the LeBron 8, which are available in stores since yesterday.
