Too early for the panic button

The two-time defending NBA Champions have not got off to a strong start. Although the Miami Heat are 4-3 to start the season, they are leading a mediocre Southeast division. Their last loss came against the Boston Celtics on a last minute shot. Through 7 games, the Heat are averaging slightly over 100 points allowed a game. So now the defense is in question. Defense, which has always been the blueprint for a Pat Riley team.

Lebron James, who was supposed to be on Celtic's guard Jeff Green when he beat the Heat at the buzzard, has made his displeasure for the team's defense known. Now, this isn't a blame everybody else situation. James is including himself. This is great and he's showing he's matured as a leader.

The good thing about basketball is that there isn't that many days off and you get to go back to the hardwood quickly. The Heat, whom offensively are one of the best teams in the NBA, tip-off tonight against the Milwaukee Bucks.

What do you guys think? Will the Heat woes continue? Or was this just a little bump in the road?
