2023-24 Season Outlooks: Miami Heat with Ethan Skolnick, Brooklyn Nets with Brian Lewis

Longtime Miami scribe Ethan Skolnick of Five Reasons Sports guests to discuss the Heat’s chances of returning to the NBA Finals. Ethan discusses why he thinks this Heat roster is improved over the one that started the regular season a year ago, what the plan is for Erik Spoelstra’s rotation, and whether Jimmy Butler can do it again at age 34.

Plus, is the Heat organization doing enough to support Butler’s pursuit of a championship?

And, of course, we make our predictions for the Heat season.


Nets beatman Brian Lewis of the New York Post is our guest to hit on a Nets team that we really haven’t seen together yet. How does Ben Simmons look, and how will he be used by this team? What are the expectations for Mikal Bridges after his breakout a year ago? Why wasn’t this team good defensively last year despite all their talent, and can they improve for this year? What are the chances of them moving some of their veterans?

And, of course, we make our predictions for the Nets season.
