    Getting a quadruple doubles won’t give Olajuwan his 3rd ring. He needs to be part of scouting staff in Miami and teach Udonis Haslem the dream shake to win a ring with our “king” LeBron. just like what I said since the start of the season this will be 3 peat for the Heat by the end of June. All people who didn’t believe me no longer commenting bec they already realized what I’ve said is true and it is happening now at 1-1 and Miami got the home court advantage again!
