The Heat will probably be able to re-sign Mario Chalmers, and maybe add a Center with the mid-level. The rest will be veteran minimum guys to fill out the roster.

PG: Chalmers / Cole
SG: Wade / House
SF: James / Miller
PF: Bosh / Haslem
C:: ________ / Anthony / Pittman

What do you think the teams chances are of making the playoffs?

0%. The new Rule in the Next CBA that Got Gilbert to be more neutral in bargaining was the Miami Rule, where Refs would ensure that Miami loses at least 2/3rds of their games in the upcoming season, allowing the Cavs to gain another two lottery pick season.

miami can field the same team and would probably be considered favorites...they did get to the ecf last season with the big 3 and vet min guys. haslem and miller should be healthy, and there are talks of getting battier or hill. Maybe another center. Future looks damn good for the heat:)

Miami is definitely the favorites. They have the most stacked starting 5 in the league. But being considered favorites does not translate into wins as was evidenced by the Finals last season.

they only have the right to swap picks with the heat, not take the heat's outright. they can't get two picks in the lottery unless they trade for another one.

i know you're joking, but it's worth clarifying.

Wow, then they really got Cleveland bad. I mean at least we got Miami's pick outright this year for Bosh. My mistake, I just assumed it was a similar deal to Bosh's S/T, thanks for clarifying.

Anyways, serious note, they'll likely win it all. Bulls/Laker fans will get very pissed, using every thing possible to take Lebron's title down... WW3 will start on PSD, we all go our bomb shelters.

99.9% chance of making the playoffs. I think you could surround James, Wade and Bosh with nine college freshman and still get into the eastern conference playoffs.

You aren't allowed to trade 1st round draft picks in consecutive years, so the Heat only gave up their 2011, 2013, and 2015. We still have a 2012 and 2014 1st round pick to use, but Cavs have right to swap in '12.

Dallas is not that dynasty type team to me. I dont see them repeating this year but I certainly wouldnt be surprised if they did. Miami will be the favorites coming in, at least they are for me. Nobody has that kind of elite talent. But it will be an interesting year once again, if we have a season, with Chicago and OKC looking to finally breakthrough, withh the Lakers hungry and looking to bounce back from their debacle, the Spurs and Celtics looking to squeek one more out and the other young talent in the league one more year older experienced.

Huh? You have two of the top 4-5 players in the world and another top 5 player at his position. I dont think there is another team in the league that has that kind of talent. I believe Miami's starting 5 is considered "stacked" by anyone's definition. Thats pretty much as "stacked" as it gets.

LOL...ya my definition of a stacked starting 5 is much less than two of the top four players in the world and a top 5 player at his position. No team in the league has anything close to this except of course the Heat. I dont understand how anybody could possibly think that Miami does not have a "stacked" starting 5 when they have the most talented starting 5 in the league, by far. If thats not "stacked" then I dont know what stacked is, but when you have the type of talent Miami has in their starting 5, you are beyond stacked. This is why they were favored in the Finals last season and will be favored to win it all again this season, if there is one.

They'll make it but its a travesty and a huge blemish to the game of basketball that they will. Superteams like this are destroying the very fabric of our once fine league and should be dismantled immediately for the sake of all that is decent. Thank goodness the owners are stepping in to remedy this mess and restore balance to the force so that hopefully one day soon we can see the Charlotte vs New Orleans finals that we have all been eagerly awaiting for so long!!!

I actually do not mind teams like the Heat. As was evidenced last season, just because you put together the best players in the world on one team doesnt mean you are going to win a title. It makes the league more fun to watch in my opinion. I can understand the criticism Lebron receives for jumping on Wade's team the way he did, but I honestly do not mind it. Because for every player that tries to take the easy way out, there are teams out there that do it the right way and just like last year proved, teams that do it the right way have as good of a chance to win it all as teams that just get stacked up the way Miami did.

last year showed why its called a team sport. They had 2 of the top 3 players, another top 20 player, and then absolutely nothing else. A complete TEAM beat them in the finals.

Well for me I don't really see a "right" or "wrong" way to build a winner. At the end of the day if Miami wins there won't be any ( ) under their name in the record books talking about how they did it the easy way. Now a team that builds a contender I guess more organically does give more satisfaction to some fans in a certain way but you still have to perform no matter how the team came about. And when you get to the NBA level I don't think there is such a thing as a stacked team. I've seen many teams that looked like virtual allstar teams on paper that were horrible. Still boils down to teamwork, discipline, and coaching.

But I wouldn't give Dallas or say even OKC who are more home grown more credit for winning a chip than a Miami or New York.

Exactly; everyone's problem with the Heat is what Lebron did. The man who many consider the greatest player in today's game basically ran to another elite superstar's team in hopes of winning a title. This is something that has never really been done in this league, at least not from a player of Lebron's caliber. Everyone thought LBJ was good enough to get it done with a team built around him, and I was one of those people. But now, it seems we will never find out if he was or not. Im one of those people who feels that winning ONE championship in Cleaveland or even on the Bulls or the Knicks would mean more to his legacy than winning multiple titles in Miami for the sole reason that anywhere else he would have gone would have meant it was "HIS" team. But now, it is Wade, Lebron and Bosh's team.

Wow for those of you saying heat sucks in the 4th quarter are just ridiculous. Obviously they sucked last year. LAST year. It's called being nervous. Lebron was just nervous okay. When you're the best player in the world about to win his first ring you get butterfly's in your stomach. Imagine if you were in his position? You'd probably pass out from the pressure he was experiencing. I say it's actually a good thing that the heat lost and failed during the 4th quarter. Because now they will come back hungrier and more passionate and more aggressively and more intense. If they won last year, then the next set of years they wouldn't want it as bad. Them failing to win their rings last year will only motivate them to win multiple rings.

When LeBron missed that open layup, it's because Rick Carlisle put oil on his hands.

When Wade missed 5 shots, it was because he missed them or else he would be shunned from Applebee's for life.
