Rick Ross is willing to bet $100K the Heat will top Cavaliers in standings
Hip-hop heavyweight Rick Ross loves to spend time in South Beach and at the Miami Heat basketball games. He’s one of the regular court side features at Heat games along with the likes of DJ Khaled and Lil’ Wayne.
Apparently losing LeBron James to the Cavaliers hasn’t rattled Ross’ loyalty to his Heat team, and he has some confidence that they’ll be atop Cleveland when it comes playoff-time, as he told Funk Flex on Hot 97:
We most definitely finishing better than the Cavaliers. I’ll put a 100 grand on that.
Miami (5-2) has had a better start to the season than Cleveland (3-3), but every one still has a ways to go. Ross putting down $100,000 on the notion that Miami will finish higher than Cleveland doesn’t put a huge chunk of stock in his faith. Miami has the advantage of experience and familiarity with a system that they can still be successful in with the pieces they have. The Cavaliers’ ceiling is determined by how quickly and effectively they can mesh throughout the season. We’ll know more about the probability of Rick Ross’ wager as we go into the meat of the season.
