View Full Version : Injuries a Bigger Factor For Heat?

People say LA should be worried about health.
Lets see how many total games the eight best players in a series missed the last three years.

Pau Gasol: 18 games (none in 11' and only 1 last season)
Dwight Howard: 14 games (4 in 11' and 12 last season)
Kobe Bryant: 17 games (none in 11' and 8 last season)
Steve Nash: 12 games (7 in 11' and 4 last season)

LeBron James: 13 games (3 in 11' and 4 last season)
Dwayne Wade: 28 games (6 in 11' and 17 last season)
Chris Bosh: 26 games (5 in 11' and 9 last season)
Ray Allen: 24 games (2 in 11' and 20 last season)


Uhm, seems like health might be a bigger concern for Miami then it is for LA. But I know, lets redefine logic and just use the age excuse and not really concentrate on each player's health history and their conditioning.

Using the age excuse? It's a reality dude, and whether you want to believe it or not age and injuries very well go together; quite well in fact, just like how you can attribute them to lack of conditioning. Injuries are a big factor for any team in the league, not just the Lakers or the Heat. This doesn't prove anything......

Why can't people let the teams play a damn game before they continuously start threads on different arguments on why either team is better or why either team stands a better chance or what either team needs to worry about. Jesus

Amen. Sadly, people like to repackage the same ol garbage that was posted the day before and claim it as their own. Of course the mods dig it if it relating to the Heat, so it's all good.

Yawn. Injuries happen to every team. Can the season get under way already to prevent threads like this please.

Injuries are absolutely a bigger concern for the Lakers than the Heat, but not because of some slight you may have perceived against the Lakers due to their age, it's because the best player on the Lakers (Dwight Howard) is actually hurt right now. I feel like this thread is just to puff out your chest and say "shut up, the Lakers are fine, it's the Heat that have problems".

Also, just objectively, those numbers you point out don't mean much. It's not like any of those guys have missed full seasons or major time in the playoffs. Ray Allen is the only Heat player that they really have to worry about, and his injury isn't nearly as significant as Dwight Howard's.

At this point, I would say it's a bigger deal for the Lakers, who have less back-up help. The Heat actually look decent on the depth chart:

PG - Mario Chalmers, Norris Cole
SG - Dwayne Wade, Ray Allen
SF - LeBron James, Rashard Lewis
PF - Shane Battier, Udonis Haslem
C - Chris Bosh, Joel Anthony, Dexter Pittman

My worry is that they're running a Toronto interior scheme, putting an obvious power forward into a center position. I can't believe The Heat let The Knicks get Marcus Camby.

Can the season just start already? All of these threads are just "this team has this! And your team needs to worry about that!". For all we know, neither team could make the finals and we could see a Hawks vs Jazz finals for all we know.

Because may be the OP is insecure and always looks forward to seeing validation on his team when they haven't played a game yet?

:laugh: It's funny cause it's basically what he had to choose from:

If Miami had a starting Line-up of:

Chalmers (Defensive PG)
Wade/Allen
Lebron/Battier/Miller
Bosh/Lewis
Camby/Haslem (Defensive/Rebouning Bigs)

That's basically end-game if they stay healthy lol

Bosh could focus on being the dominant offensive PF that he was in Toronto and not be the last resort on the other end lol

...but then, while in the regular season, some will ask "can the playoffs start already?" :D

If our team is garbage what does that make u guys who we let win 1 game to feel relevant in the NBA again in city where ur own player (jr smith) was quoted as saying are a bunch of over opinionated critical buttwipes calling out all your players when things get a little rough or there of no use to u anymore You don't know the meaning of loyalty.

HEAT have depth and versatility.

Chalmers/Cole/Wade/Allen/Miller/James/Lewis/Jones/Bosh/Haslem/Anthony/Battier

Talking about 4 guys who could play PG, 5 guys who could play SG, 5 guys who could play SF, 4 guys who could play PF, and 4 guys who could play center

...and that is just talking about the 10-11 rotation guys

With that kind of versatility the HEAT will have no problem over coming injuries here and there b/c there are many capable players who can play each position.

They are a concern for both and all teams really. If LBJ or Dwight go down (especially in the playoffs) the door is wide open.

Injuries a concern before the season starts when everyone is healthy?

lol.

Injuries are a concern for every team. If a top player on any team goes down for an extended period of time, the team isn't going to perform as well. You cant go into a season EXPECTING an injury.

Since when Miami is a garbage city? And if Miami is a garbage team then New York doesn't even have a NBA team. When was the last time the Knicks were relevant? Yeah 2344566777888899932211 years ago. Remain in the dark. Go figure.

If LeBron goes down the the heat are a far different team. They won't win it all without him. But, they may be able to overcome other injuries, such as bosh getting hurt.

I agree health would be the biggest determining factor in the Heat's title repeat...but isn't that usually the biggest determining factor for any team to win a title or even to have a successful season? - *said in my calm yet sarcastic voice*
