After a 105-95 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans Saturday night (Mar. 22), Miami Heat starters LeBron James and Chris Bosh gave the South Florida Sun Sentinel a piece of their minds regarding the team’s performance.
“We suck. We need to turn it around. There’s no passion. There’s nothing…We need some dialogue around here,” said Bosh. “On defense, we can’t stop a nosebleed. This is unacceptable. If we do not change this we will be watching the championship from home.”
King James also felt some of way about the defeat.
He said, “We all need to get on the same page and figure it out. I don’t know what we are going to do, but we have to figure this out. There’s too many excuses. Everything is an excuse. Something goes wrong? An excuse. Line up change? An excuse. Turn the ball over? An excuse.”
This loss was the seventh one this month for the team who won the NBA championship two years in a row. The Heat currently hold the no. 2 spot in the Eastern Conference standings with a record of 47-21.
