Heat didn't look so hot

Did you see the whuppin' the Chicago Bulls put on the defending NBA champion Miami Heat?
By 42 points (108-66). In Miami. On the same night the Heat received their championship rings.

It was the worst season-opening loss by a defending champion in the history of the NBA.

"It was absolutely one-sided,"said Miami head coach Pat Riley. "Just a very embarrassing loss."
No kidding.

If you were wondering what the addition of Ben Wallace meant to the Bulls, wonder no more. The Heat shot a pathetic 38.5 percent from the floor.

Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich was impressive on both ends of the floor. He led all scorers (26 points) and had a game-high two steals.

"It's just one of those nights," said Heat center Shaquille O'Neal.

If Tuesday night is any indication, it's going to be one of those seasons.
