In Response to Re: Miami Heat....What a Fraud
[QUOTE]not one championship, not 2, not 3, not 4, not 5 not 6 not 7.... I believe Lebron.. I think he was trying to say was zero championships What buffoons these guys made of themselves so far. Strutting around.. Wade feeling sorry for whoever has to guard them.. Bosh last week saying his coach wants to work them in practice but the big 3 want to chill... so they have to meet in the middle. Sometimes I think Bosh is so stupid I feel sorry for him. He says all the wrong things and prances around after every bucket he makes... a perfect fit for Lebron. I thought the Heat wouldnt be so great from the get go.. but was thinking a 60 win team... the 8-6 so far is pretty shocking. Any team with Lebron is going to have tropuble with chemistry cause he dominates the ball or stands in the corner... either way, it dilutes his temamates.

Bosh is an overrated player. Always has been. I knew his lack of toughness and maturity would be exposed in Miami. He was the wrong selection by Wade, Lebron and Riley. Much better centers were available to pick from.
The Heat is also the perfect case study to understand the important of a true point guard. And I stress TRUE point guard, and not a score first point guard (ala Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook etc). Derrick Rose and Russell Westbrook are great on teams that don't have too many big-ego offensive weapons. However, on teams with too many big-ego offensive weapons, you need someone like Rondo to make sure that ball gets distributed optimally.
Lebron dominating the ball in Cleveland wasn't the best thing they could have done, but at least it worked. It got them from point A to point B. But this ball domination is not going to work in Miami where Wade and Bosh expect to get the ball in their hands. They need someone to play a true PG. Arroyo is not the answer. Lebron is not the answer. Wade is not the answer.
The point guards that could make the biggest difference in Miami's offense are (in no particular order):
2. Steve Nash
3. Jason Kidd
Obviously, any good score first point guard will make a huge impact on Miami's offense as well. But the three listed above would make sure the best decision is made every time, and when making such decisions they would factor is for more things than any other point guard in the league.
But I have to say, Rondo is the point guard the Heat should aspire to get over the next few years. Rondo alongside Wade and Lebron would make for the sickest fast breaking team in the history of the NBA.
