Miami Heat stars Bam Adebayo and Tyler Herro meet Chelsea FC stars Mason Mount and Jorginho at the FTX Arena

Chelsea football player Mason Mountain and Jorginho are the latest celebrity athletes to flock to South Beach to watch Miami Heat in action.

The duo have been superb for the past 18 months, helping Chelsea win the UEFA Champions League last year.

The duo have a third club in the Premier League as Chelsea will be hoping to return to this title battle with Manchester City and Liverpool.

Premier League clubs are on a two-week hiatus, and the duo used the break to get the Heat to organize New York Knicks at the FTX Arena. Mount then took to Instagram to post pictures of his time with Miami’s Tyler Herro and Bam Adebayo.

After beating all odds to reach 2020 NBA FinalsMiami was swept by the Milwaukee Bucks, the eventual champions, in the first round of last season’s Eastern Conference.

But this season, there’s hope the Pat Riley-led franchise could advance to another NBA Finals. The Heat (31-17) is currently at the top of the Eastern Conference rankings. They have won 8 of the last 10 matches and turned home into a fortress, with a score of 17-5 in Miami all season.

What’s even more remarkable is that this has been done with the team constantly being hampered by injuries or Covid-19 cases like Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo missed a lot of games. Meanwhile, Tyler Herro and Duncan Robinson defended the fort in the absence of Miami’s best players. Butler and Adebayo are back.

The Heat have done an incredible job assembling this roster as they contain the ideal mix of experience and youth while possessing threats from outside the arc with Herro, Robinson and Max. Strus.

What is invaluable to these players is the experience they gain from the 2020 game and the eventual loss to the LA Lakers. Pressure and know-how in post-season situations are critical to any team’s success, and these players understand it.

With so many experienced players on the Miami squad, no one wants to be compared to them in the knockout stages.

However, unlike previous years, the Eastern Conference is packed with big teams with the potential to go deep in the post-season.
