False, the Heat are actually pretty mediocre without Lebron on the floor. Their ceiling would probably be ECF if everything went right, and that's with them playing in an already very weak Eastern Conference.

Default Re: A Healthy Miami Heat Without Lebron Would Still Make The NBA Finals

The Heat without Lebron would still be a playoff team, but most likely a lower seed (6-8). Bron fills a lot of holes that the team has. The only reason they can start soft ass Chris Bosh at C is because Bron is there to pick up the slack when it comes to rebounding (He leads the team, even while playing out of position at the 4). Outside of Wade, no one else can create their own shot as well as facilitate for others (Bron leads the team in both points and assists), so when Wade is out the team would rely on Norris Cole to be the playmaker on the court

They would suffer pretty noticably defensively, seeing as how Bron is their best defender from the 1-4 positions, and can even play the 5 from time to time.

No way they get past Chicago, Boston, a healthy NY, and especially not Indiana, they're frontline would be decimated by the Pacers.

And for the record, I don't think Bosh is a HOFer. What has he done besides lead his franchise to lottery status and then be a distant third wheel on Lebron/Wade's team?

of course they would you can even take bosh off the team and they still make the finals. the east is so weak this year might be even weaker than it was in 07 and it was pathetic back then.

Indiana, NY, and Boston would beat them.

Lebron's rebounding would be highly missed...amongst his obvious other amazing traits: passing, scoring, and versatiliy on defense.

It's like playing with the 2009 Cavs where LeBron would go to the bench with a 10 point lead, and come back down 5.
It was actually the other way around when Wade went out with foul trouble in the first...

Against a good defensive team when LeBron is not on the floor the Miami Heat are no better than the Bobcats.
