“We’re hoping to win the division now,” Marcin Gortat said on ESPN 980 Friday afternoon, before Chris Bosh re-signed with Miami. “Obviously we can’t forget about Charlotte, who’s a really good team too, [or] Atlanta, who’s a really good team. We’ve got to continue to just get better. The biggest goal for us is to get all the way to conference finals and hopefully NBA finals.
