    Where Would The Heat Be If They Had Signed Amare Instead of Bosh?

    I think even Heat fans should be able to admit at this point that Bosh has been somewhat of a disappointment (though still a very good player), but considering the how Amare and Felton have helped to create some real excitement for the Knicks this season, I have to wonder: Where would the Heat be if they had chased after Amare instead of Bosh?

    There is the obvious possibility that they would be no better or worse, that Amare might not have chemistry with LBJ and Wade, but at the same time, his ability to face the basket, post up, hit the jumper and create off the dribble would be a huge asset, and he's even rebounding a little better.

    So where do you all think Miami would be if they had picked up Amare instead of Bosh?

    A lil better, but not good enough to beat the celtics, orlando, or L.a. in the playoffs his offense yea is better than bosh, but defense and rebounding is same as bosh

    why do the biggest LeBron/Heat haters ALWAYS start threads about them, then in the very next breath turn around and complain that there are too many threads?

    Anyways based on what Amar'e has shown this season the Heat would undoubtedly be the best team in all of basketball. Obviously his numbers and impact on the game will not be as big as it is in NY but just basing on how he has performed they'd be better off this season IMO.

    They'd be without Wade & Lebron because the three stooges wanted to play together.

    Not much better at all, probably same or even worse lol. If they signed Boozer, they would be better chemistry wise.

    honestly it would have made more sense to sign boozer, so they have a little more cap space for another free agent solidifying there team and like 6 championships lol

    what boozer gives u isnt much off from what bosh gives u...hell it can be argued hes better

    amare wouldn't have made THAT much of a difference as boozer + extra free agent would have

    I admit Boozer would've been better, bt outside of that, who cares? We have Bosh now, and I get the feeling that you're discrediting Bosh based off the first 10 games he's played here. Since then, he's been great for us and regarding Amare, he's putting up the numbers he has now because he's getting all the touches in NY, well, most of them I should say. Amare wouldn't be putting up the same numbers in Miami. Just saying.

    its too bad for Heat Fans Stern is Taking away the Mid Level Exception. Heat could have added some scary pieces in the future, and if used correctly that could have been a Dynasty Team.

    (For all of you who dont know what the Mid Level Excemption is, its money a team has to sign a player if the team is over the cap) Lakers used it to Sign Ron Artest, Mavericks used it to sign Shawn Marion, and etc. The Mid Level Excemption is usually a three to five year contract, or two if a team wants to make a short commitment.

    If the Heat had signed Amar'e they'd be virtually unstoppable. Bosh is a good player, but Amar'e is the most dominant player in the game when it comes to scoring in the paint. And now he has a good mid range game as well. Plus now that he's out of Phoenix he's actually playing some defense. 2 blocks per game is something I don't see Bosh pulling off ever. He's a far more dangerous scorer when on the move compared to Bosh. If the Heat had signed Amar'e they'd be even better basically. Not by leaps and bounds, but definitely better.
