View Full Version : How many championships will the Heat win?

I would make a poll but I dont know how too.

I dont think they will win any until they trade 1 of the big 3 for a solid center and PG.

I Would trade Lebron for Rubio Kevin Love and Beasley.. Make it happen Pat!!!

My guess is that they fall short up to their option year and then Riley trades 1 of the big 3 to fill out the team. If he does that then I think they get 1 championship. If not then Lebron will go down as the best player to never get it done.

How many championships do you think they will win?

With Spo, I wouldn't hold my breath on a championship. His teams have more blown leads and have given up more game winners in his career than any coach in the history of the NBA.

Rubio

Yea Bholly. I am leaning towards what your saying. Wouldnt be surprised if they got 0 but I think if they trade Lebron for pieces to fill the team they could win 1 or 2.

When it's all said and done, this team SHOULD win a championship.

Lebron (regardless of 4th quarters) and Wade are just too good, and deny that is being a homer.

i would be skeptical sure he might make them better if you surround him with other pieces, at a businesss stand point lebron would make minny money that it hasnt tasted since the KG dayss, but at the same time i dont think lebron would be game going through the risk of a rebuilding team

for miami i wouldnt trade arguably the best player in the world for those guys, do they trade bosh? i dont see a front court of bosh/love working. with wades health up in the air i wouldnt make that trade.

bholly
01-13-2012, 08:01 PM
I think the big problem for predictions of 3 or 4 or more is that Wade turns 30 in a couple of days, and he's had numerous injury problems in his career and plays huge minutes. It's hard to believe he'll be the same D Wade for more than 3 or 4 years, and he might not even get that much. With the contracts they have, and the new CBA, it isn't like they're going to have the cap room for a quick retool around Bosh and LBJ if Wade declines.

Of course it's possible they'll make the necessary roster changes and whatever to keep it going after Wade, but for now it looks like if they want to win 3 or 4, they pretty much have to start this season and not miss a year.

I think so, it shouldn't really take that long. Lakers have maybe 3 more years of contention, Dallas about the same, Celtics maybe one, and the Spurs who knows? So in a couple years its wide open. The younger teams will be on the rise but the Heats experience should be enough to get past them......

He wasnt. Chris Bosh and Wade were there too. Point im making is that the threads dont piss people off about the heat its the way they carried themselves before the season started last year.

Lebron was the only one who had a televised decision saying he was going to Miami though.

But this thread isnt about that its about how many championships they will win. Its about whether you think they can do it with there big 3 or will they have ot trade one to fill out their holes. Its also about the trade proposal i put in there with the wolves. Do you pull the trigger on that?

Theres actually a couple of questions I wanted to ask. My feeling is that if they dont trade 1 of the big 3 before their player options are up that they wont stick together to win a championship.

Dude I been saying it Spo has some neat (I use that word purposely) ideas but lets be real if Pat Riley were still coaching I dont think the Heat would've loss the series last season. So with a Coach who is growing and getting better hopefully like Spo Im going 1. With a legit NBA veteran coach, same team they have this year, I'd think at least 3 in a 5 year span. You got to think a 7 game series is a chess match as a coach and on the player side trying to beat King, Flash, and Boshua 4 times!! is not easy.

Reread my post and then you can delete the question. People were talking about why everyone hates the heat. I said the thread isnt about that its about how many championships they will win. It matches my thread title. In my opening thread post it also asks if you think they will need to trade one of the big 3 to fill out the team to win a championship. Then it also asks on this prospective trade idea for the Twolves and the Heat.

I made it up for arguements sake.

They lack a center and a point guard even though I will admit Chalmers looks good at times.

Rubio at Point
Wade at SG
Beasley at SF
Bosh at PF
Love at C

I think that makes their team far more dangerous then the big 3 imo. Im sure posters would even probably say the Wolves are giving up too much and I may side with them too. Lebron is a hell of a player but Rubio has looked sharp Love solves a lot of their problem areas and Beasley isnt anything near Lebron but hes more then capable of being servicable at the 3.

i think MIA would really have to consider that deal. although i can see them still not being sure about Rubio. he's looked real good so far but still very unproven. who really knows what he will be..? MIA would be better off trying to get a good PG and decent C by trading Bosh, or maybe even offering Wade to MIN for Rubio and Love, no Beasley. but like u said, i wouldn't be surprised if MIN says no.... they have a nice little core of Rubio, Love, and Beasley. they may really like the direction they are headed.

well right off the bat miami losees this deal. an unprioven rookie and kevin love whose numbers are inflated playing on a horrible team, especially starting at center where he is undersized and just isnt a good defender next to another slight framed power forward, id assume teams like the lakers would have feel days on them.

wade is 30 next month. he is yet to begin to adapt his overtly physical offensive game. if he is unable to find other ways to dominate offensively as he ages, this heat team is a lot closer to looking like LeBron and Bosh + filler than a lot of people think. unless he turns on the heat big time for the rest of this season, this season could go down as the start of his statistical decline (all up to him and how he adapts). But Flash won't be able to be flash as we know it in his 30's, he's gona have to adapt.

it also really depends on the talent that Riley brings in as the years go on.

The younger teams are already as good as the Heat if not better. The Thunder & Bulls will be the two dominant teams this decade. I could even see the Clippers being right there with OKC/CHI (although not this season). Honestly, the Heat would be ecstatic to win one championship at this point. I thought Wade would be fine this season, but now he's seriously injured. And even prior to the injuries he was sucking. I thought he'd have 2 years before a big decline, but time has caught up with his style of play already.


between the bulls and knicks in the east for the next 5 years

i give them 1

okc 2

bulls 1

knicks 1

I wouldn't be surprised if it happens this way, except for the Knicks. That team is garbage, and there's nothing else to it. They have a horrible coach in D'Antoni. They have an over-the-hill, severely injury prone Stoudemire on a max contract. They have more than $54M wrapped up in Melo/Stat/Chandler next season. The year after that, over $57M. And in 2014/2015, almost $61M.

The Knicks will be a perennial 6th seed, if they're lucky because I see the Pacers and Sixers possibly beating them this season along with Chicago, Miami, Orlando, Boston.

hahah now i aint a Heat fan but some post makes me wonder how idiotic some people can be!

First of all Wolves wouldn't just trade Rubio, Love and Beasly for LeBron they would even throw in a blowjob to every stafmember to janitor in the Heat arena for LeBron.

Now i know this thread comes because Heats loosing streak but hey no one thought the heat would go 66-0 and now suddenly they wont even win a ring with LeBron because they have lost 4 games.

smh!

How many championships do you think they will win?

I honestly think that they will win all of them. In every major sport.

God himself wont be able to stop the Heat from winning this years Superbowl or World Series.

Shyit just got serious.

I would make a poll but I dont know how too.

I dont think they will win any until they trade 1 of the big 3 for a solid center and PG.

I Would trade Lebron for Rubio Kevin Love and Beasley.. Make it happen Pat!!!

My guess is that they fall short up to their option year and then Riley trades 1 of the big 3 to fill out the team. If he does that then I think they get 1 championship. If not then Lebron will go down as the best player to never get it done.

How many championships do you think they will win?

Bosh and Love would clash.
I'd ask for Rubio, Williams, Milicic to start.

I answered zero. But they will probably win atleast 1. Real question is how many more seasons until one of them leaves the Heat.

I'll say 1. Maybe I'm a homer, but just looking at Wade this season, I really think he's breaking down.

And they still haven't shown me that they are head and shoulders above everyone else. They have the talent to be that dynasty, but beyond Wade's injuries, that talent is far too overlapped and I just don't see that changing unless they find a way to hire an offensive genius in Sloan, which I give a .1% chance of happening since Sloan left the Jazz BECAUSE of prima donna stars wanting to leave and team up elsewhere. The other option of course would be trading one of their big 3, except people forget that each one of them has a MAJOR 15% tradekicker.

For Lebron, any team is willing to absorb that extra cap space. But I don't believe they'd be willing to do it for a very injury prone Wade for the next 4+ years or Bosh who just wouldn't be worth it. Besides, for all the Heat fans who still want to pretend Wade is the best player on that team, you can bet Riley will let Wade go before Lebron.

So unless Riley manages to somehow brilliantly swing Wade in a deal where they get more youth and balance, I can see Lebron in an awful situation with a nice sidekick in Bosh, but an aging Wade who can't stay healthy and nothing else due to cap restraints.

I say this season is Heat's best chance to win.

Wouldn't this thread only make sense if the Heat actually won a title?

I guess everyone should go in the NBA forum and ask how many championships there team will win as well.

And I'm pretty sure trade ideas without merit go into the trade idea or free agent forum.

Knicks are irrelevant. They don't have the flexibility to make any major changes going forward. And that team won't become strong defensively anytime soon. All they can hope for is hitting in a major way in the draft, which will be tough at around the late teens or so. Then again, if there is one thing NY shown capable of doing, it's drafting. Too bad they traded so many of their picks away in the Tmac and Melo deals.

Bulls, Miami, OKC, LAC, and either LA, Dallas, or Orlando (whichever gets the combo of either Deron/Howard or both) seem to be the only other teams that will be legitimate contenders for next 2-3 years barring another major trade or some young team making major strides. Possibly Denver and Portland as well.

Note: I didn't list New Jersey because, sadly, I think they'll lose the Howard sweepstakes as Deron leaves them as well.

all they have to do is trade lebron and cole for dwight and nelson and hey are set

nelson/chalmers
wade/miller
battier/miller
bosh/haslem
dwight/anthony

that team is a a championship team for sure.

wade and bosh are your two options on offense. dwight is your third scoring option which would be perfect for him. chalmers,battier and miller are your outside shooters. wade and battier are you defensive stoppers. wade and nelson are your play makers, haslem is your 6th man rebounder, defender hustler guy and dwight is your shot blocker, interior defender, inside presence and main rebounder

Its really hard to say... They are a good team but they still have flaws... And it really depends on how the other teams as well. There are a lot of promising teams that could give them a run for their money... If they really want to speed win a lot, I would say, trade Lebron for Dwight straight up...

Agreed. I think if they don't win it this year, they won't win at all. I'd say the max is one or two rings, but zero is definitely a possibility.

It'll probably never happen though. I don't see a team taking an injury prone Wade just to help out the Heat.
