Report from Scaling New Heights Conference... and QQube training

Big 3 

From The Decision, to Crygate, to being 2 games short of becoming World Champions. It has been quite a bumpy road for these Miami Heat this season.


Yes, the Heat came up short of their championship dreams. But in season 1 (of this 5 year project), the Heat were on the cusp of success. After all the hype, all of the excessive criticism, and the embarassing moments during the season, the Heat came together as a team and have a come quite a long way from the early season struggles. Love them or hate them, there's no denying the hard work and effort put forth by the whole team on this run at a Championship. The Miami Heat started the season as 3 superstars with incredibly high expectations. And while they fell short of their ultimate goal, The Big 3 have just hit a bump in the road. Already favored to win it next year, the Heat have a lot of work to do to meet the even higher expectations they will have next year.


We here in "Wade County" congratulate the Dallas Mavericks on their amazing championship run and thank the Heat for a great year. We look forward to bringing the trophy back home next year!
