Van Gundy: Miami Heat will be almost unbeatable

Jeff Van Gundy says the Miami Heat will be so good this year that they will break the Chicago Bulls' win record, topple the Lakers' consecutive-games winning streak and "will never lose two games in a row." They're so good they'll break the '72 Miami Dolphins' streak.

"They will break the single-season win record [of 72]," Van Gundy told Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. "And I think they have a legit shot at the Lakers' 33-game [winning] streak [in 1971-72], as well. And only the Lakers have even a remote shot at beating them in a playoff series. They will never lose two games in a row this year.
"They have put together a much better roster than anybody could ever have expected. There is now no good way to defend them. They are unguardable. They are indefensible. They are just too good and have added so much shooting and are so versatile that they will score at will."

Evidently, Van Gundy doesn't think the coach will be one Pat Riley.

"And with Erik Spoelstra coaching, they will be in the top three defensive teams in the league, as well. The other 29 teams better hope the lockout gets moved up a year."

Gulp. Two of the three members of the Heat's glorious troika (whither Chris Bosh?) shot hoops with President Obama over the weekend. Kobe Bryant was there, too, but didn't play. Maybe he's been listening to Van Gundy.
