Although they have yet to play a single game together, there is a new best team in the NBA.
The Miami Heat drastically reloaded its roster this offseason, returning only six players from the ’08 – ’09 season. Many people have heard about the acquisitions of Lebron James and Chris Bosh, but there are thirteen other new players who have migrated onto this now star-filled team. Veterans Mike Miller, Eddie House and Juan Howard all want a chance to win an NBA championship.
The Heat also had a nice draft, picking up West Virginia standout De’Sean Butler and Texas big Dexter Pittman.
Miami has a good mix of young talent and solid veterans, and it is safe to say that stars on the team have an experienced and formidable supporting cast. It is hard not to marvel at the stars on the team.
In the history of team sports, there has rarely, if ever, has there been two of the top three players of that sport playing on the same team. James and Dwyane Wade are two of the most electrifying players to ever play the game of basketball.
And let’s not forget about Bosh, who has averaged over twenty points and nine rebounds per game throughout his career.
Miami Heat is unequivocally the most talented team in the league. The Heat’s only problem this year could be team chemistry. Its new blend of player’s looks excellent on paper, but will there be enough shots to go around?
The stars’ egos really should not be an issue: The problem is the simple fact that they are two of the best players in a league with the ball in their hands. Though if everyone plays as a team, that’s not a bad problem to have.
During the next few years, the Heat will probably win multiple championships and possibly win it all this year.
