Post your predictions for the big 3 and whatever here.

Lebron - Will be DPOY he'll get about 18 ppg 8 rpg 5 apg 2 spg 2 bpg

Wade - Will continue to be wade and will get serious mvp considerations. 25 ppg 8 apg 4 rpg 2 spg

Bosh - Will score more than LEbron because he'll get so many open looks 20 ppg 9 rpg 1.5 bpg

they'll have at least 55-60 wins, maybe more depending on how weak the EC is i haven't looked it over yet but will ultimately lose to the Celtics or Magic in the ECF or the Lakers in the Finals :D

you think Lebron will be DPOY with 8rpg, 2spg, 2bpg.....HAHHAHA
Howard does that in a quarter! Howard averages 13rpg, 1.5spg, and 3.5bpg easily. Lebron will not dethrone him of DPOY.

Lebron and Wade have an on-court argument/fight in January. The media makes a complete circus out of it, and theres just too much distractions and tension between the two for the team to go on as is. The entire NBA ends up despising LeBron including Wade + Miami fans, LeBron cant take it anymore and fails at a suicide attempt, considers his options and eventually Cleveland fans reluctantly welcome him back as a WR for the Browns. He goes on to easily be the best WR of all time.

Lebron averages a triple double or close to it, gets strong consideration for DPOY but doesnt win it.

Wade wins co mvp with Lebron and is the leading scorer on the team.

Bosh sees a increase in rebounds but a decrease in points.

70 win season.

The Miami Heat will go 55-27 in the regular season. They will win round one in 4 games.
However in round two the Heat will face the Celtics. The series will return to the Garden in Boston for game 7. The game is neck and neck until the third period when 2 simultaneous events occur.

First, Dwayne Wade informs Pat Riley there is a domestic crisis in Chicago and he must phone his children. His two kids are fighting
Over a Miami Heat cereal bowl. At this very moment with the Heat leading 54-50 another dramatic event takes place.

LeBron James and Paul Pierce are running towards the baseline chasing
A loose ball. This is where James' mother reaches over and grabs Pierce's headband and throws it 20 rows up. James begins to restrain
his mother, however at second glance the woman he grabs isn't his mother but rather a blonde women with a 36 DD cup size.

David Stern immediately contacts officials and has James thrown out.
The Heat go onto get outscored by 30 points and lose game 7.

In the postgame interview Wade & James are surprisingly delighted and
still promising 7 championship rings. "I'm just happy that Pat contacted the manufacturers and my kids are getting a second cereal bowl" said Wade.
“Man, I thought it was my momma I thought I had a grip on her belly, I had no idea it was her boob" said James.

Chris Bosh was unavailable for an interview but was spotted twittering and face booking.

Wade will tear his ACL 2 months into the season. Bosh will leave the team to pursue a film career, starring as the Predator in a new sequel. Lebron will fail once again and get booted from the playoffs in the second round. He will be able to go back to Cleveland just in time to witness the birth of his new little brother, Delonte Jr. Big Z, Juwan, Haslem and Miller will all die.Either from old age or from swallowing too much of Pat Reilly's semen.

I givem 58 wins.
None of the 3 will ever win MVP since, like the yanks, there's too much talent to credit one of them for a great season.
Lose in the ECF to Orlando.

I think the MIP award may come from this team. Too many smaller naes to not have one break out.

Rose will fail once again and get booted from the playoffs in the first round. He will be able to go back to Chicago just in time to witness the birth of his new little brother, Gangster Jr. Gibson, Deng, Johnson and Korver will all die.Either from old age or from swallowing too much of Tommy T's semen.

There will be a 2011 NBA Lockout. like in 1998. Half of the season will be lost.

Lakers in the Finals Against the Celtics.

The old Celtics will be fresh and healthy having to only play 40 games in the season. Perkins will be back from injury. The Heat will not have enough time to get it together and gel. it would be a wasted season for them.

They are going to win between 62-70 games this season. I just don't see all 3 of those guys all having poor nights collectively. Finals appearance and hopefully a championship. It's not going to be as easy as everyone thinks (to win a title) but let's be honest it's absolutely possible.

bosh will fracture his face, lebron will blow his knee out dunking so hard and wade will tear ligaments in his ankle from turning it.:p

i like this team, i just dont think wade and lebron will be as productive together as it is made out to be. They are almost the same type of player. neither are knock down shooters from the 3 so i don't know what roles each of them will fill. they both need the ball to be effective. i would hope that lebron would sacrifice his pts and try to avg. a triple double. I would cheer for that.

I mean seriously, Stern should declare that Miami doesn't even have to play the regular season. Just write down a 82-0 record for them and let them gangbang each other on South Beach the whole winter while the rest of the league plays.

At least thats what I'm getting from some of the logic in this thread.

Bosh- 19 ppg, 11 rpg, 1 bpg

Heat 69-13 and championship

This prediction is luicrious. They aren't even close to as good as the 72 win Bulls and you have them winning only 3 less? Ha ha ha ha. Yes I agree that BOTH Wade and LeBron are top-3 talents in the NBA. I also know that it takes more than 2-3 players to win a game and it takes a VERY deep bench to win a Championship. Something the Heat will not have. I agree that they will probably be in the playoffs. But the Bulls, Magic, Celtics, Hawks(maybe), all have better ALL-AROUND teams than Miami does right now. Z is old (36+) and won't be an effective starting Center at all. Haslem is decent, but also getting up there in age. Miller is an O.K. shooter, but has never really had that great of numbers. Good luck next year, but I can almost assure you that Miami will NOT win a Championship. The Bulls have a lot better team than people are giving them credit for. And they are VERY deep. PG Derrick Rose, SG Kyle Korver, SF Luol Deng, PF Carlos Boozer, C Joakim Noah..........BENCH SG Reddick (maybe), SF James Johnson, PF Taj Gibson, C Omer Asik ("Noah JR")>>> They are also in the Running to re-sign Brad Miller and IMO should re-sign Acie Law for backup PG.

People are seriously underestimating the Heat. And this is coming from a Knicks fan.....

60+ wins, finals appearance and a very interesting series with the Lakers. I don't like Orlando replacing Reddick with Q if thats what they do. Actually, I don't like that Q signing at all. Duhon could be a decent backup I suppose but I don't know that there's much difference between him and White Chocolate.

Boston's getting old. I'm not convinced about the O'Neal signing either. Maybe he works out better in Boston but Sheed played a big part in Boston reaching the Finals. Plus, Perkins is going to be out for awhile and the East has gotten better. Can the Celts make another run through the East as a 4 seed? I doubt it.

I see a 1 Miami vs. 4 Boston and 2 Orlando vs. 3 Chicago.

The biggest problem facing the Heat is the lack of a great defending Center to match up with Howard and the Lakers. Luckily for the Heat, Boston and Chicago don't have a dominating offensive Centers. Bosh is bad defensively but he has the skills to be a good defender, he's not incapable, he just chooses to ignore Defense. Maybe Riley, Lebron and Wade get him to buy into the idea of playing D. I really don't like the way the Celts match up with the Heat though, Rondo would be soo important- to the point where he'd have to carry them. Garnett, Pierce and Allen all play the same position as Bosh, Lebron and Wade, and the Heat's 3 players are all better right now.

Orlando could provide an interesting matchup with Howard being there. Again, we'll have to see if the Heat can find a defensive Center to matchup with him. Even if they don't though, its going to be difficult for Howard alone to beat the Heat.

I don't know that the Heat would beat the Lakers. That'll be a great series. I'm leaning towards the Heat though. But its tough to answer this question without knowing if they do acquire that defensive Center.

Something the Heat will not have. I agree that they will probably be in the playoffs. But the Bulls, Magic, Celtics, Hawks(maybe), all have better ALL-AROUND teams than Miami does right now. Z is old (36+) and won't be an effective starting Center at all. Haslem is decent, but also getting up there in age. Miller is an O.K. shooter, but has never really had that great of numbers. Good luck next year, but I can almost assure you that Miami will NOT win a Championship. The Bulls have a lot better team than people are giving them credit for. And they are VERY deep. PG Derrick Rose, SG Kyle Korver, SF Luol Deng, PF Carlos Boozer, C Joakim Noah..........BENCH SG Reddick (maybe), SF James Johnson, PF Taj Gibson, C Omer Asik ("Noah JR")>>> They are also in the Running to re-sign Brad Miller and IMO should re-sign Acie Law for backup PG.

You're overstating the impact of the bench. Sure you def need someone off the bench who can score but look at the Lakers- they had Odom off the bench and other than that, not much else. The starting lineups and defense usually win games in the playoffs. Look at game 7, 6 points for the Celts bench, 9 for the Lakers. Does that look like a big difference?

The bench will def win you a couple games here and there but for the most part its done on the strength of your starting lineup- which is why the Celts beat the Cavs last year. The Cavs had a "VERY" deep team but the Celts starting lineup was better. And the Celts really weren't that deep. Nate wasn't contributing at that point. They had Sheed, Big Baby and T. Allen (who does nothing offensively) off the bench. 3 guys. If the Heat can find 2-3 guys off their bench, they'll be fine. Chalmers, Haslem and Big Z, or they could bring Mike Miller off the bench which would give them more scoring. And I doubt the Heat are done bringing in role players.

Miller is not just an OK shooter, he's a career 40.5% shooter from the 3 point line. His TS% has been around 60% the last 3 years. He's an excellent shooter and he compliments Wade and Lebron perfectly.

The one thing the Heat are truly lacking is a great defensive Center who can match up with Howard or the Lakers bigs.

If Greece can beat a Lebron,Wade,Bosh, Dwight, Melo team then imagine what nba teams would do to them?

I haven't thought of that before, Greece did beat team USA that had LeBron, Wade and Bosh + Carmelo. That's proof that the Heat aren't a superman team the Heat fans are claiming them to be. The Heat aren't invincible, Wade, LeBron and Bosh have been beating before with some depth. Now they are reunited with no depth making them more valuable. But they will win up to 65-69 games and they might not lose no more than 15-19 games.

Under estimating bench not only thing they under estimating. Miller, Big-Z not close to R.Harper or Longley either. I hope they shot over 60% as a team because there front linbe is going to get destroyd by good teams. They will be near the bottom of the league in rebounding. No Cap room and down mant poicks in the S&T's this problem won't be fixed quick.

People are seriously underestimating the Heat. And this is coming from a Knicks fan.....

60+ wins, finals appearance and a very interesting series with the Lakers. I don't like Orlando replacing Reddick with Q if thats what they do. Actually, I don't like that Q signing at all. Duhon could be a decent backup I suppose but I don't know that there's much difference between him and White Chocolate.

Boston's getting old. I'm not convinced about the O'Neal signing either. Maybe he works out better in Boston but Sheed played a big part in Boston reaching the Finals. Plus, Perkins is going to be out for awhile and the East has gotten better. Can the Celts make another run through the East as a 4 seed? I doubt it.

I see a 1 Miami vs. 4 Boston and 2 Orlando vs. 3 Chicago.

The biggest problem facing the Heat is the lack of a great defending Center to match up with Howard and the Lakers. Luckily for the Heat, Boston and Chicago don't have a dominating offensive Centers. Bosh is bad defensively but he has the skills to be a good defender, he's not incapable, he just chooses to ignore Defense. Maybe Riley, Lebron and Wade get him to buy into the idea of playing D. I really don't like the way the Celts match up with the Heat though, Rondo would be soo important- to the point where he'd have to carry them. Garnett, Pierce and Allen all play the same position as Bosh, Lebron and Wade, and the Heat's 3 players are all better right now.

Orlando could provide an interesting matchup with Howard being there. Again, we'll have to see if the Heat can find a defensive Center to matchup with him. Even if they don't though, its going to be difficult for Howard alone to beat the Heat.

I don't know that the Heat would beat the Lakers. That'll be a great series. I'm leaning towards the Heat though. But its tough to answer this question without knowing if they do acquire that defensive Center.

Chicago will be lucky if they make it out the first round...we will be waiting in the ECF, but no way the bulls get past ORL

LeBron: 23 points, 10 assists, 8 rebounds
Wade: 27 points, 6 assists, 4 rebounds
Bosh: 19 points, 11 rebounds

63 wins. ECF appearance.

I don't see how Wade would average 27 ppg. He didn't even average that this season with him being the only scorer. I don't think any of the three will average over 25 ppg.

Nah, I think Chicago makes it out of the first round pretty easily probably. Boston's going to end up the 4 seed again (maybe 5) because they won't be playing as hard in the regular season to preserve themselves for the playoffs. The Bucks are going to be pretty good and the likely 4-5 seed. If the Bulls end up behind the Bucks and end up playing Boston in the 1st round, then yes they could lose. I just don't see that happening. I think with Boozer, they're probably better than the Bucks right now.

Edit: I completely forgot about the Hawks. Just realized that. Ok, I have to redo my seeding here. And you're right- the Bulls might not end up out of the first round. This is also leading me to believe the Celts are in real trouble. The East is significantly better this year and they're not going to be able to sleep walk through the regular season and then turn it on in the playoffs if they're a 6 seed.

1 Miami v. 8 who cares
2 Orl vs. 7 Knicks (I gotta put my team in the playoffs)
3 Chi vs. 6 Atl
4 Mil vs. 5 Bos

I could see Chi, Mil, Bos and Atl ending up in any of those 3-6 spots. Boston is probably the only team out of the 4 of them that could get past Orlando though. But that would be 2 pretty tough series for Boston. It's def going to be the case where its advantageous to be one of the top 2 seeds.

I'm not a Heat fan, or a fan of Lebron or Bosh... but in reality this team will be good, no question about it, especially in a terrible eastern conference. That's why this move bugged me more than anything... if the east was as deep as the west, I wouldn't mind it as much, but the Magic, Celts, and Bulls out east are the only teams that could contend with them... I don't like what the Magic are doing, they're likely to lose both Redick and Barnes which is a bad move, the Bulls will be tough to beat also though... people are underestimating what they did this summer. Adding a player in Boozer gives them 20 and 10, while making a pick and roll with Rose extremely hard to stop. Korver is a good player and great shooter, while Redick can play D and can shoot.

But the biggest pick up for the Bulls is their head coach... this guy is a defensive guru, he basically made that Boston defense, and now he's going to a younger team which was already good defensively last year.

Rose
Korver
Deng
Boozer
Noah

Pargo
Redick
Johnson
Gibson

Boston is very good too, their defense is ridiculous, and I'll never count them out of anything anymore.

there would be no chance we lose to the magic in the playoffs. they matchup horribly with us and joel anthony always shut down howard last year which would be why he averaged 11 and 11 on 40% shooting on us next year, not to mention the horrible matchup problems the magic would have as ar as guarding lebron and d wade in which they have nobody who can do that.
