(MIAMI) — In wake of Pacers head coach Frank Vogel saying that the Miami Heat “are just the next team” in line of their quest for an NBA title, Heat All-Star LeBron James will be waiting for them come Wednesday.
“We’re not just another team,” James said on Sunday, as the Heat prepare for their Eastern Conference Finals opponent. “I don’t understand what he’s saying. But we’re not just another team. That’s not true.”
“He said we’re just another team in their way. We’re a great team. If we’re just another team, you really don’t prepare for just another team. You have to prepare for us,” James continued.
The Pacers won two of their three regular-season games against the Heat, but James isn’t putting too much thought into that.
“We’re very confident,” James said. “We’ll be ready for them. We don’t need bulletin-board material. We’ve heard everything, we’ve seen everything. But I would say we’re not just another team, though.”
