So everyone bashes LeBron for so called "joining forces with two superstars" yet Wade and bosh have been pretty atrocious. They were a combing 6-21 with 23 points. You call that superstar production?? That's just about what it's been the entire playoffs. The fact the Heat are even tied with the Pacers truly shows how good lebron is.


So my question is this:

Lebron/wade/bosh

Or

Lebron/George hill/Hibbert??

I take the second trio ALL day because they compliment each other so much better but don't have the unwarranted super star titles that bosh and wade have

LeBron, George Hill, and Hibbert. What?

Lots of things wrong with your question. First, LeBron plays for the Miami Heat. Second, the trio for the Pacers would be Paul George, David West, and Roy Hibbert.

If only Granger was back.

Oh I thought you were comparing them by teams. I'd still take Bosh and Wade.

Right now and for the future? James, Hibbert, and Hill. Wade needs to retire after this year or something. His knee doesn't seem repairable and he's useless without the go ahead layups.

Not even close. Miami's trio is much better, its not even close talent wise. Indiana just has great chemistry and their interior presence is causing Miami problems. Thats why its 2-2 in the series.

Lebron/Wade/Bosh but if we can make things up i'll take Lebron/Rose/Noah all 3 of those guys are great defensive players who can pass and make their jobs easier. Lebron can Just post everyone up while Noah makes that fantastic over the defenders head passes into easy layups/dunks

The Heat trio has already prove they can win. But if I'm creating a trio with Lebron (and can pick from the entire league), for starters I do not want to waste money on another PG (or star that needs to iso and dribble half of the shot clock down to create their own offense), so Rose/Wade/Paul will be out. Lebron is the PG (point forward rather) of the team, the offense would go through him. 2nd, a big man that can post up would be the 2nd star I would look for. 3rd would be a guard that can catch and shoot, and play great defense.

The perfect team for Lebron IMO:

PG that can shoot the 3 ball
SG that can defend, can come off screens
Lebron
athletic PF that can block shots and shoot mid range jumpers
Center that can post up and rebound

It's kinda sad really but times like that show you who are the true fans and aren't I've had similar arguments with "bulls fans" about Derrick Rose.

Fact is Miami wouldn't even be relevant if it wasn't for Wade. Him and Shaq won a ring and he recruited Lebron to Miami. But at the same time Wade has really attacked Miami fans for years taking cheap shots at the fans on multiple occasions so I can kind of understand why their turning on him when he's not playing up to standards.

I've said many times that this new wave of bandwagon Heat fans are the rudest, most arrogant, and most disloyal fans in the NBA.

Lets be honest here though...Those of us that were here before July 2010 know how many so called "Cleveland fans" this site used to have...Funny how I don't remember there being nearly this many Heat fans from 2007-2010...I'll let you guys connect the dots...

05-29-2013, 03:16 AM
Over-reaction much? I would understand if it was Paul George or West instead of Hill. What's the ****ing point of having Geroge Hill when LeBron is already there to handle the ball? GTFO!

EDIT: Pretty sure this guy and Oceanspray are ex-cavs fans.

05-29-2013, 03:21 AM
the funny thing about the heat is that bosh in not a center and lebron is best as a PF so they have 2 PF's as their top 2 players atm. IMO it is better to put 4 players earning 10 mil each around lebron than to put 2 players earning 20 each. something like marc gasol, wilson chandler, andre iguadala and george hill. That would be the rowdiest way to build around lebron. Then add a 6th man (ray allen) a backup pg (norris cole) and two backup bigs (haslem and bird) and you have for around the same price, the most dominant dynasty since the kobe-shaq lakers.

I feel like this is created so if he does not win .... people will go it is not his fault.

Remember it is a team game...thats why you should support teams not players.
So if Heat wins it is not just LeBron, its Wade, Bosh Birdman and the rest of crew. However if they dont win...is a lost to Wade as well as a lost to LeBron.

Wade is playing hurt, and you're kinda piling on him.

14.3ppg, 5.6apg, 4.8rpg, 1.7spg 46% fg's.

Let me tell you as a Knicks fan I'd take that as my #2 guy in a HEARTBEAT... most teams would. Those numbers are comparable to what Paul George has done in these playoffs as the #1 man, and George isn't hurt.

Wade put up 21/5/5/2 on 52% this year, those are INSANE numbers...better than pretty much any other SG in the NBA. some MIA fans really are spoiled.

And people get on LBJ for joining with superstars because...well... he DID! 3 years ago Wade was the 2nd best player in the game, and Bosh was the best PF on the market, and top 3 PF overall.

but these guys thought they could just show up on the court and win an easy 7 titles... the ironic thing is the CLE teams with LBJ had a higher winning % those last 2 years.

pretty much this, MIA has more talent than any other team in the league... by a pretty good margin too... but the Pacers are a tough big team, that is playing hard for 48 minutes. Watching them against NY for 6 games... they just suffocate you all game.

If he really played with Hill and Hibbert the same thing that was said about his Cleveland teams would be said again.I'm not sure Hill is better than Mo Williams and Hibbert is a little better than Andy V. If he lost with those guys people would still be screaming "he needs help"

Wade was the 2nd or 3rd best player in the NBA when they teamed up and Bosh was the #1 option on a playoff team. Its tough for guys to adjust to smaller roles and a lot of guys struggle to do that. Its hard for stars to get used to not getting plays ran for them and still being successful. I don't think you have to look much further than Dwight Howard trying to adjust to being a 'garbage man' instead of a focal point.

D-Leethal
05-30-2013, 09:02 AM
I think both Wade and Bosh would still average 23-25ppg if they were on their own teams. They are still stars, but on that team their not much more than role players. Bosh isn't utilized for anything but kickout jump shots. Wade basically gets leftovers. Its hard for a star who is used to having the ball to get used to playing without it.

05-31-2013, 12:19 PM

C Hibbert
PF LeBron
SF Battier
SG Ray Allen
PG Hill

Personally I think this would be a surefire champion especially with Wade being banged up and Bosh being non-existant. Hill isn't better than Wade (obviously), but right now they're basically playing at the same level (in this conference final). And Hibbert is playing really well (much better than Bosh IMO).

Yeah but I don't think you consider the fact that Lebron can produce best with the floor spread. Lebron, as big and strong as he is, needs wide lanes for his style of play making and scoring.

I would say having Bosh is important to Lebron because of his ability to shoot. If you had Hibbert then you would definitely have to slow the pace for him to even be part of play. Teams on Paper doesn't mean anything. Look at the Lakers.

I don't know about the entire list, but the second and third best players to me have been Hibbert and George. I would give the edge to hibbert because of his defense so far (and how he has miami scared to attack at times). I don't see how he could be 4th.

I think having a legit 7 foot center would help Lebron too though. It may clog the lane a little more but look how many easy buckets he has gotten anderson. Could you imagine a defense with a legit 7 footer and Lebron? He is versatile enough to sort of be their anchor or make up for some height issues right now but I think defensively that would be awesome.

I completely agree about Bosh though. He is exactly the kind of stretch player that can spread the floor out and give Lebron room to operate. There certainly are better basketball trios than Lebron, Wade, and Bosh though. They have a lot of overlapping qualities.

First trio. The other trio would be ineffective with how Lebron plays. It is no coinsidence that both Bosh and Wade now don't play the same way they used to because of how much Lebron controls the ball.
