The Miami Heat cruised through the regular season, compiling a league-best record of 66-16.

They swept the Milwaukee Bucks in the first round, winning every game by at least 11 points.

After a loss at home to the Chicago Bulls to open the second round, Miami rolled to victory in the next four games to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals.

In their first true test of the playoffs, they needed seven games to defeat the Indiana Pacers to punch their ticket to the NBA Finals.

But now, they're facing elimination at the hands of the San Antonio Spurs. Are you surprised by the situation that the Heat are facing?

Who can forget the famous quote when free agent additions LeBron James and Chris Bosh, along with incumbent Dwyane Wade, were introduced to Heat fans in 2010?

"Not one. Not two. Not three. Not four. Not five. Not six. Not seven."

James predicted the Big Three would provide the city of Miami with a run of championships.

In the first year, they lost to Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks in six games in the Finals. As the saying goes, you have to learn to lose before you can win.

Last year, LeBron captured his first NBA title as the Heat rolled over the upstart Oklahoma City Thunder in five games. Many believed that the win would mark the beginning of the run.

But just one year later, the San Antonio Spurs have a chance to interrupt that run before it gets rolling.

Are you surprised the Heat are facing elimination?

As always, it's Your! Call.
