Chalmers and wade were beast defense back then.. bosh became one of the best hedgers against the PnR during his stint with miami.. you cant use defense as your argument here. Miami wouldve had a great defense completely without lebron. They already had it before he got there and they added one of the most mobile PFs in the league.
I already made this kind of post but the stans ignored it. They keep acting like Bron taught Spo how to implement a defensive scheme or something when Miami played the same kind of defense before he joined (and Bosh also had big defensive impact). Chamlers/Wade/Melo/Bosh would of course have been capable of running the same trapping and disruptive defensive scheme.
