Lebron has been in the NBA for 8 years now, twice he has made it to the finals. The first time him and his team(Cavs) got swept 4-0. Lebron later decided enough is enough, I need to win a ring so I'll form a super team. But this tactic was fruitless, lebrons second finals appearance, now with the heat, he lost 4-2.

So how many years will it take for Lebron to win a ring, or will it never happen?

If Miami continue to have holes in the 1 & 5 spot, as well as continue to have no depth then i cant see Lebron winning a ring. And since adding Lebron made Miami broke i cant see any real significant upgrades any time soon. I do believe Lebron & Wade clash spite of what many may say & tell the public about how good their chemistry is - these two players just do not fit well together.

The Heat don't have great depth, but their talent at the top is great enough to overcome that. They certainly could have won the title this year, but LeBron didn't perform in the Finals the way he did in the playoffs.

He will win a title next year, or the year after that. If he doesn't, it will be very surprising.

tkshy
07-30-2011, 12:32 PM
As many as he plays. The basketball gods will never let him win one because he bailed on Cleveland to win a ring on someone elses shoulders. It would be different if it was at the end of his career like Malone, and Payton going to LA. He will go down in history as the best player to never win a ring.

now tell me wich kind of 9-12 players you can sign with 12 million ( 1 to 1,5 million average.)

LOL. If there is a hard cap then Miami will benefit most. Miami is #20 (http://slumz.boxden.com/f16/top-30-highest-paid-nba-players-salary-team-salaries-2010-2011-season-1484172/) in payroll. All the contenders are way above Miami. That means they will be have to release their star players unlike Miami. Just think about your Lakers, you'll get the answer.

Who knows. Maybe if he doesn't win in the next year or 2 he'll bring the best goldsmith, the best designer and the best diamond cutter and make his own ring. It might not be earned, but it would definitely be the best ring out there if the Big 3 put it together.

....seriously, I'd be surprised if the Heat don't win in the next three years.

BkOriginalOne
07-30-2011, 03:45 PM

This.

I seriously don't expect Miami to win next year because the whole league is watching and there's no way that they can fix their wholes in 1 off season.
Lebron will win in his 3rd year in Miami - if at all - let's keep in mind that Dwade will already be 30 next season.

It depends heavily on what Dwight and CP3 and Deron do to. If CP3 joins NY or if Deron and Dwight join in LA, NJ, or DAL then the Heat could find it more difficult than first anticipated.

I think Miami have to win next year. If they do, they can get some of that pressure of their backs, particularly Lebron.

If they don't win next year, I have no idea what to expect, I know just about every Heat fan will want some changes, probably meaning Bosh being traded.

They've got to be careful though, if Howard goes to the Knicks, Bulls or Nets, or Chicago gets a good 2 guard... those teams will not be easy outs in the playoffs.

Malone didn't have the 2nd best player on the planet and another top 15 player on his team. Plus Malone had to play Michael freaking Jordan. Who do you think is gonna play Jordan's role to keep LeBron away from titles? Oh right, he has that guy on his own team.

If they get Chandler back, and another penetrating guard like Barea or Barea himself back, they will have a good chance especially if games are lost. Considering Kidd's style of play is all smarts and precision at this point, it's not like he'll fall off that much. And if Butler comes back healthy, he can basically fill Stevenson's defensive role.

Agreed. Could easily be this year. Could have been last year too. They weren't that far away. If the Mavs hadn't had their own demons of "failure" to exorcize last year and had they not been that motivated, the Heat could easily have won. As much as I dislike Lebron the person, I can see the accomplishment he's had in getting to the finals twice already with fairly imperfect, unbalanced teams.

That's not really how it works. Teams will still have to honor all current contracts, minus a probable amnesty clause that will allow them to cut one player off their payroll, but they still have to pay him. The Lakers will still have Kobe, Gasol, Bynum, and Odom all under contract.

Miami on the other hand has payrolls of $65M, $65M, $71M $76M, and $65M over the next 5 years. If there's a hard cap of $60ish million (which is fairly reasonable for both sides), they're going to have to use their amnesty clause on one of the big 3 or they'll be unable to sign free agents for the next 5 years.

if they put up a low HARD CAP and eliminate MLE exception Heat is Tosted.

If thing remain as they are today they will adquire the depth needed wiht one mle each year the next three seasons and end up winning.

I don't buy this.

Every other team that we have to be worried about (Boston, Chicago, LA, OKC, NYK) will have the same problems. What's more, why would the Big 3 not restructure their contracts to take less money in order to get the talent they need around them, like Peyton Manning just did? They've done it once, and proven they don't mind. I would be shocked if a low hard cap came and they didn't restructure for less.

This team will do what it takes to win. Will they succeed? Who knows. Maybe not, but like most posters here, I'd be shocked if we didn't win in the next 3. That being said, I think this year coming up will be our easiest. Once Howard and CP3 start moving, and LA has put some more pieces together, it could be more interesting.

As far as the current CBA, you can't restructure deals like in the NFL. That's why you don't see players holding out in their 3rd year for a restructure. And the difference between miami and other contenders is everyone believes they still need to bring in free agents, which they can't do for the next 5 years if theres a hard cap. Other teams will probably be able to trade players and get new players, miami has no one to trade

wow, you are plain and simple a bling hater. name me 1 other team that doesnt have to add anybody? 1. please.

the lakers need more young pieces, same with celtics, knicks need an entire bench and a coach, bulls will never beat the heat unless they get a 2nd star that can score consistently, mavs are getting older, thunder need 1 more bench piece and will have to pay their guys soon. The heat, who according to you still need to bring in free agents, just went to game 6 of the finals and have players dying to come here, win a ring, and get laid on south beach. we will be just fine.

Not so sure about next year, but the few seasons after that they could win up to 3 in a row depending on where Chris Paul and Dwight sign. By then the Heat should have some decent depth, not so sure they will next year, but hey they got close enough this year with the team they have so who knows.

Well, the whole point of this conversation is that the "current CBA" is dead, and a "new CBA" is being talked about.... :eyebrow:

If a hard cap is introduced, a ton of teams will be in trouble. They will have to allow restructuring of contracts, or it would be idiotic on everyone's part. A hard cap does nothing but screw over about 8 teams and create a pathetic, watered down league if there is no restructuring allowed.

And Miami has no one to trade? You don't think people want Chris Bosh? Riiiight.
