    One reason why they won't fail...Pat Riley. Give him a year and a solid team will be formed, aside from the 2.5 superstars.

    People keep saying Pat Riley. Pat Riley is the one who assembled the team that almost ran Dwayne Wade off to begin with.

    Pat Riley will be coaching them the second they drop to 2 losses in a row.

    ^Doubtful. Orlando, Celtics, and Lakers are probably praying for the chance to bury this fantasy team.

    Yea man, Wade with a just past his prime Shaq were good enough to win a title and no one is concerned that they added the best player in the NBA and a Pau Gasol clone. That would be dumb.

    A Pau Gasol clone? what does Bosh have in common with Gasol other than they both are weak on defense?

    Bosh isn't the passer Gasol is. He doesn't have the footwork or the offensive skill that Gasol has. Gasol actually blocks shots, unlike Bosh.

    Everyone is forgetting that Bosh, as of right now, is the closest thing to a center the Heat have right now. Dwight Howard, Kevin Garnet and Andrew Bynum will eat him alive, the same way the Celtics ate Gasol alive.

    Hmmm, let's see. Similar height, weight, skillset. Both are average defenders. About the same age. You're right. Nothing alike.

    I love that everyone zooms in on the weaknesses of the Heat. Say what you will about Bosh, but if he's the third best player on your team, that's pretty good if you ask me. And all this "well they wont play defense" talk, this team is going to outscore everyone, they wont need great defense, just average. I'm not saying they win it all this year but they will be a top 5 team in the NBA.
