Do The Heat Have The Seeds To Be The League's Next Superteam?

Lot of potential on this Heat roster.

Do The Heat Have The Seeds To Be The League's Next Superteam?

The Miami Heat have title aspirations once more this NBA season. They added key pieces in the offseason and drafted promising young star, Precious Achiuwa.

But does Miami currently have the pieces to create a budding superteam? Some would say that they do.

Most notable of their young core is Bam Adebayo. Bam was drafted 14th overall by the Miami Heat in the 2017 Draft. Since then, Adebayo has blossomed into a certified All-Star and the first option in a given night to score the ball. Adebayo averaged 15.9 points in the 2019-2020 NBA season.

Another key addition was the drafting of Tyler Herro, 13th overall in the 2019 Draft. Herro showed a lot of promise, especially when he scored 37 points in a crucial playoff game against the Boston Celtics. Herro overall averaged 13.5 points in the 2019-2020 NBA season.

Of course, there is the Heat's most recent draft pick in Precious Achiuwa from Nigeria. Achiuwa was drafted 20th overall in the 2020 NBA Draft.

This Miami Heat team has shown a lot of promise, especially in regards to their young core. This is coupled with the presence of key veteran players, such as Goran Dragic, Andre Iguodala, Avery Bradley, and of course, Jimmy Butler.

Jimmy Butler has more than proven himself to be a key piece of this team since his signing in the 2019 NBA Offseason. Butler promised the team and the Miami Heat fans as a whole that he would bring them a championship. Of course, the Miami Heat did not win the 2020 NBA Championship. However, Butler helped to bring a Miami Heat team that many people did not think would make the playoffs or if not would be a second-round exit to the NBA Finals for a chance at a championship.

There is also a lot of promise in regards to the team's perimeter shooting. This is focusing on Duncan Robinson. Robinson went undrafted and was subsequently picked up by the Miami Heat. Since then, he has proven himself to be one of the premier perimeter shooters in the league. Robinson averaged 13.5 points in the 2019-2020 season.

This is all coupled with talks that the Heat might trade for James Harden, who seemingly has become disillusioned by the Houston Rockets. The addition of Harden will definitely put the Heat as even more of a contender to come out of the East and compete for an NBA Championship

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
