With the national media crowning the New York Knicks the 2013 NBA Finals Champions this past week, it was easy to forget that the Miami Heat are on the verge of breaking the all-time franchise win mark and clinching homecourt advantage throughout the playoffs.
It's also easy to forget that LeBron James still wears all opposing teams like a hat (an asshat, if you will) and is still the harbinger of doom around the basket.
Case in point: During Tuesday night's 94-83 win over the Milwaukee Bucks, LeBron caught himself in midair with no one to pass the ball to, so he just passed it to himself before flushing down a subatomic dunk before the Triple-A crowd.
Now let's watch in GIF form, shall we?
Also, looks like his hamstring is just fine.
So now the magical number for the Heat to clinch home-court advantage throughout is one.
As things stand right now, the Heat will be facing these same Bucks in the first round of the playoffs, and then either the Nets or Bulls before they probably meet the apparently already champion Knicks.
The Heat also needs one more win to solidify itself as the best Heat team of all time.
Miami plays at the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night.
