Strengthened Miami Heat puts the rest of America on high alert

After all the laughter and mocking and criticism after all the doubt and fear that knocked on the locker-room door, trying to bust in while being pushed back after all the hyperventilating, unreasonable, knee-jerk coverage that had the entire blueprint being dismantled just seven games ago something else sweeps over Basketball America now. It is quieter and less angry and no longer sounds much like laughter, rest assured. It is more of a wincing, uh-oh fear that comes with the realization that this particular storm has not passed but rather is just now finally gathering strength.
