The Miami Heat social media team took a hilarious shot at the Dallas Cowboys after the team's victory over the Boston Celtics. They almost word-for-word copied the now infamous tweet sent out by the Cowboys after their postseason loss.

Celtics gave away the ball 17 times in the narrow loss to the HEAT, in a matchup the Celtics had a chance to win if they didn’t again generate self-inflicted wounds. https://t.co/ySg1DVRsko

The tweet in question called out the turnovers committed by Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott, so the Heat mentioned the Celtics' turnovers during their matchup. Fans went wild with one of the most impressive trolls in sports social media.

@MiamiHEAT Hide your TVs, Cowboys fans won't like this https://t.co/32HipjHc6Y
@MiamiHEAT Me a cowboys and heat fan reading this https://t.co/bPyAUgxeZP
@MiamiHEAT As a Celtics fan, I respect this so much. LOL touche.
@MiamiHEAT Man i hate to do this but I gotta applaud this tweet. Good game Miami
@MiamiHEAT LMFAOOOO I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE, TRYA BE LIKE THE COWBOYS

The Heat's attempt at trolling the Cowboys was not only successful, but it was a hit with fans.

Following their loss, the Cowboys' official social media account inexplicably took a direct shot at Dak Prescott, placing the blame for losing a winnable game squarely on his shoulders:

"Dak Prescott gave away the ball twice in the narrow loss to the 49ers, in a matchup the Cowboys had a chance to win if they didn’t again generate self-inflicted wounds."

It is one of the most surprising tweets of the year since social media teams don't usually delve into this area and teams rarely call out one of their players as a reason they lost a big game.

Nevertheless, the tweet went up and has now become iconic and has teams like the Heat mocking it left and right.


What's next for the Dallas Cowboys?

This is an important offseason for the Dallas Cowboys. While some fans would like to see them move on from Dak Prescott, that's not likely to happen. Others want Mike McCarthy fired, which could happen.

Regardless, there are a lot of moving pieces this offseason. Dan Quinn, defensive coordinator, and Kellen Moore, offensive coordinator, are head coaching candidates.

They also have a score of upcoming free agents:

  • TE Dalton Schultz
  • RB Tony Pollard
  • S Donovan Wilson
  • LB Leighton Vander Esch
  • G Connor McGovern
  • CB Anthony Brown
  • QB Cooper Rush
  • LB Anthony Barr
  • DE Dante Fowler
  • WR Noah Brown
  • WR TY Hilton
  • DT Johnathan Hankins
The Dallas Cowboys will have to re-sign Tony Pollard

Many of these are key contributors, which makes signing most of them back a big priority for Dallas. The Cowboys could look very different next season.
