You're one of the last few Heat fans I see that take shots at LeBron to prop up Wade. You must be Heat007

I agree with the OP.

Lebron makes them favorites to win the championship.

However, without Lebron, they would still win the East.

Wade + Bosh with all the other weapons would still be the best combination currently in the East. They would get out of the East. With Lebron, they are unstoppable and high favorites to win it all.

I think they would be a 50-52 win team without Lebron I think the Pacers and a healthy Knicks would beat them.

As long as Wade is 100% healthy, & Bosh clearly knows that he will be the clear cut 2nd option on the team, while the supporting cast just do what they do & hell yeah Wade could carry them to the eastern finals like he has done before.

Last night for example with LeBron in the third, without Wade the Heat are within 1 point when he checks out, and have all the momentum. Wade comes in to "lead" the way, and thei down by 10 when he comes back in. LeBron clearly is the only reason they won the game, as evidenced by his 4th quarter stats.

no just no. miami loses someone who leads them in scoring, rebound and assist. not to mention his defense. if you watch miami games, you would know that when lebron is on the bench, then miami's offense just crumbles.

Yes. Without Lebron, Wade's scoring will go straight up as the man of the team. Bosh would be a great 2nd option, his rebounding will go straight up.
They still have all the shooters and great rebounders.

I dont know if taken into consideration, but basically instead of lebron's max contract, just get another rebounding big man. That's enough to beat most of the league.

Definitely Eaastern conference, and possibly champions.

I dont know about that. With lbj they are a lock but without him I dont see them getting past indiana and even the rose-less bulls and struggling knicks would make it a tight series

playoffs is all about star power.
with Wade, Bosh, Ray, they have more stars and power than any other team in the East. Plus, the experience of these guys are crazy.. They have a combined 4 rings together.

Ray Allen isn't a star now. Chalmers and Battier are probably more important.

For someone who watches the Heat, this is one of the dumbest things I've seen. Battier possibly, even Chalmers?

Just 2 games ago, Ray Allen single handedly destroyed the Raptors by hitting 2,3 three's in the fourth after being tied. He gave them the lead that eventually gave them the win. That is his power.

who t f chalmer?
I've watched the last 2 heat games without even noticing him

The Heat do worse with Ray on the floor a lot of the time. He's not a star anymore.
