"I compare it to the year I went to Boston when the Big 3 got together in 2007," House said. "But this is going to be even bigger. This is going to be Boston on steroids."

Steroids maybe.
But the style of play differs between them by A lot and people don't take that into account when their talking about these guys meshing.

KG is a better defender, leader, passer and overall talent that Bosh
And Pierce and Ray Allen are better shooters than both Lebron and Wade.

Eddie House isn't even going to get the looks he got in Boston because of the floor spacing. With that, he'll still hit about 40% from 3.

I'm pretty sure House is going to get better looks. Pierce and Ray are only better at shooting and Lebron and Wade are pretty much better than them at everything else.

These type of posts makes people hate on the Heat.

I remember right after the all star break last season when Dallas made that trade for Butler, a lot of Dallas fans were crowning them to be in the finals or even champions. OMG is was so bad, like it never end with the threads in the NBA forum and it ended up with PSD hating on the Dallas and jumping on the Spurs bandwagon to beat them in the playoffs.

Let me get this straigt. So a guy you admit will probably not be the starter, nor the closer, and will average under 25 minutes a game... will still be the headline story on ESPN.

Yeah, I can just see it now... "Boston closes out series against Miami. Next up Shaq vs. Kobe Finals" :facepalm:

Who are you really trying to convince here? It would be one of the stories, but far from "the" story. The story would be the 12th time the Lakers and Celtics are meeting in the Finals, and whether the Lakers will get a 3 peat and tie for 17 franchise titles with Boston... not Shaq vs. Kobe at all. That really is laughable.

Matter of fact to be completely honest, and I'm sure all will agree with this.... "the story" would be the Celtics knocking LeBron/Heat out of the playoffs in general.

Don't discount shooting. Team USA did for years and that's why we lost. If all your team can do is play in the paint, the defense will just pack the paint and dare you to shoot.

I think its naive for Eddie House to say that.

who's to say how these big 3 in miami are going to play with each other? you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink...

The same goes with the new Heat. Look, im not saying that they don't have the potential to be a dynasty. But to say that its already here/going to happen is a bit arrogant. Boston can attest their success to teamwork. Not just a Big 3. If anything, Boston had any given "Big 3" when they needed it. Players individually stepped up on the whole team to give them the success that they had. To say that the Heat will dominate just because they have the big 3 is foolish

when its all said and done, nobody knows until the games have been played.

Well I don't really think Eddie would have anything negative to say about the team he just signed with and I bet his "steroid" comment was really referring to how athletic that group will be. He didn't necessarily say they will be better than the Boston "Big 3" because even he doesn't know that yet I'm sure. As long as he isn't as arrogant as Lebron to go off claiming they will win 8 titles than I really have no problem with it.

You really got me thinking about Shaq guest starring on Pros vs. Joes. I really want to see an average Joe's first impression when he's got to try and block out Shaq in the lane, or get tough with him even. All those Joe's always have a chip on their shoulder for some reason. Just a thought :D

How is it Boston on Roids? Boston has and had a better PG. They have the better PF in KG, even today. They have a better shooter. You could say that Pierce's production is close to that of Wade in terms of what they mean to the team. Lebron is in a league of his own. Doesn't make them that much better. I still like Boston's Bench from the last few years, better than Miami's.
The biggest difference is Miami has a younger big 3. We know the chemistry worked for the Celtics but we still don't know about how it will be for the Heat.

And Pierce and Ray Allen are better shooters than both Lebron and Wade.

Eddie House isn't even going to get the looks he got in Boston because of the floor spacing. With that, he'll still hit about 40% from 3.

You just messed up the comparison.

LBJ is better then KG = Per cavs vs wolves records as leaders prior, plus 2 consecutive MVPs and way better STATS.

BOSH is better than Allen = Or at least equal in value, but definitely not better.

WADE is better than Pierce = way better stats, performance, plus mvp.

I'd rather take Boston's Big 3 in 08 that this current Miami Heat 3. Garnett was the best defensive big in the league and they had the best shooter in the league in Ray Allen, all while having their franchise guy as their "go-to" guy. The Heat have horrible defensive presence and two guys who need the ball in their hands at all times.

I guess 2 all NBA defenders, a proven defender in Anthony, and a young point guard who was 5th in the league in steals just 2 years ago just isn't good enough to be at least concidered a decent defense?. Don't deny that Wade and Bron are 2 of the leagues best players, it kind of makes me mad how apparently this old trio is getting more praise than what Miami has been getting. It's almost as if Wade and Lebron are underrated now?...funny how one little decision can make so many people go brainwashed.

No one could imagine how the boston big3 could do it back when they 1st joined force, its the same with the heat big3 and its understandable.

But this heat is a way better Big3. With 1,3 + 10? best player in the league together in heat. I dont even think the boston big 3 was at 5,or 8 plus 15 and they are older when they joined.

I'd rather take Boston's Big 3 in 08 that this current Miami Heat 3. Garnett was the best defensive big in the league and they had the best shooter in the league in Ray Allen, all while having their franchise guy as their "go-to" guy. The Heat have horrible defensive presence and two guys who need the ball in their hands at all times.

I love this... I've been listening for a while to people underrating the Heat's defensive potential.

I've been raving all summer how I'm as excited about the defense as offense. Joel Anthony is a better defender than Jermaine O'Neal, Bosh is a better defender than Beasley, and LeBron is a way better defender than Richardson. This all while the Heat were the 6th rated defensive team in 09-10. I might be in the minimum, but I think we are going to see defense similar to the Mourning era in Miami.

for the posters saying Miami doesn't have what Boston had PG wise coming in, please go look at Rondo's advanced numbers before the big 3 arrived, and get back to me on your opinion

As a first year player on a lottery team that had it's franchise player out half the season with an injury?

Those numbers would definitely be telling.

Yet for House, this is somewhat personal. He's not one to carry grudges, but he's still sore at the Celtics for trading him to the rotten Knicks in February. Come playoff time, he plans on reminding them just what they're missing.

"That stung a little bit," House said. "When you feel like you're a main part of what the team is doing and you're on a mission, to get the rug pulled out from under you and get sent to a team that has no shot . . . that kind of hurt."

At the time, House heard rumors that he might be dealt for tiny Nate Robinson. He didn't want to believe it, even though the whispers were everywhere. And on the morning when Celtics coach Doc Rivers told House that the deal was practically done, he insisted on practicing with the team one more time, just in case there was a glitch with the paperwork. Just in case somebody changed his mind.

And I'm sure Wade and Lebron are still sore at the Celtics as well because of what happened in the playoffs last year.

yea but rondo want even starting. they kept him because he was a distributor instead of a scorer like west and they were scared of having to many scorers. im not saying chalmers is as good of a facilitator as rondo because he is and never will be but thats not what the heat need and rondo wouldnt do as well with the heat because he cant play off the ball i think both point guards fit what their teams need and in both situations playing with 3 all stars and possibly HOF'ers will almost if not always make you better.

the point stands. Rondo was not a good PG really, until the big 3 arrived and propelled his development.

Point is simple; from a raw talent stand-point this big three is far superior than Bostons in '07. D-wade, Lebron, and a quality PF in Chris Bosh, all 28 and younger, nothing else has to be said. Now as far as chemistry is concerned, we will have to wait and see it play out. All i will say in that regard is that Bostons Big Three never played a game together as far as im concerned prior to them joining forces. Miami's Big three have had numerous practice sessions, numerous olympic games, several all-star games; enough so that they felt they could play with each other just fine. If that doesnt show you any amount of cohesion than your just being ignorant.

House is right. and he will get PLENTY of open looks, if he doesnt embrace that, Mike Miller will gladly take over with 48% from behind the line.

this thread is dumb because we havnt seen them play..... WE ALL NEEED TO SEE HOW NOT LEBRON AND WADE PLAY...ITS ALL ON BOSH IF BOSH ISNT A REAL BIG WE WILL SEE IT THIS YEAR....if bosh is a beast liek kg then yea they will be better then boston but if bosh is not aggressive and doesnt play good d the celtics and magic will **** on them.... i mean we all obv know that lebron and wade will be nice together but lets see how they shoot ot handle the ball to see how they are are.... we all know bostons defense is no joke and we got all the pieces to go to the championship..... miami the pieces are there but they could be to a dif puzzle. people who i ? is chalmers, bosh, big z, and haslem if these player play good basketball miami will be a great team

Well all i know, is that soft *** Bosh is 26 averages 24 ppg and 10.8 rpg has a quick first step, a mean step back jumper, silky smooth spot up J, an array of finesse post moves, and can dunk it through your grill on occassion.

So leave his soft *** on my team. I guess ill manage. :eyebrow:

Naturally almost every thread is going to some how evolve into Heat v.s the world. They obviously became a very strong team, and since were in the off-season and theres nothing else to discuss, naturally it'll be a recycled topic until we kick things off.

as far as bosh, were just saying we dont think hes soft. how is that overating?

Meant to say in the post. Anthony & Haslem are both undersized and Big Z is a below average defender. The Mavs, LA, Orlando, and Boston are going to feast on them down low.

Brendan Haywood and Dirk don't seem to scare many teams and definately won't affect how many times Wade and Bron get in that paint.

Gasol and Bynum are definately gonna be a test for Miami but remember Gasol gets switched to C and Odom to PF a lot. So they are not always playing big.

Dwight is a force to be reckoned with but that never seemed to stop Wade or Lebron from scoring 40 every game on them. Wade and Lebron draw a lot of contact therefore maybe a lot of fouls on Dwight. Dwight has never had good stats against Miami because Wade has always taken him out early.

Boston has a lot of bigs, but the same thing occurs with every team playing Wade and Lebron....there will be a lot of fouls so they might have to go deep into that lineup, and Miami out of everyone knows they don't have to worry about Jermaine.

That seems pretty accurate to me. As good as Boston's big three was when they got together, they were older and not on the same level as Wade and Lebron. They've had a lot of success obviously so if the Heat can keep it together like the Celtics did, they should be successful too.
