LeBron James made his second big decision of his NBA career this offseason and once again it included moving away from his current team. At the beginning of the offseason, nobody knew if any of the Miami Heat’s “Big Three” would remain. After LeBron left, though, it was hectic for the Heat front office as they began doing their best to fill the gigantic hole that LeBron left.

I think for starters, it would be important to look at some of the big moves the Miami Heat made so far this offseason to replace the loss of LeBron.

  • Real M-Fing talk !!!

    I Why do people keep saying Wade and Bosh had to sacrific, but no longer…. Which is bull crap, were they sacrificing their games in the Spurs series? there’s a big difference between getting few shots and Taking few shots… the shots are always there for Bosh and Wade, they just weren’t taking them or making them or playing defense… if Bosh is your number #1 option going forward simply double him and force Wade or Deng
    to carry the team, that’s why it wouldn’t shock me if the Heat misssed the playoffs or squeak into the 8th seed, if guys like Deng, McRoberts do not have a great year this team will get blown out on a nighty bases, because teams like the Wizards and Hornets are no longer push overs

    The major point people refuses to acknowledge, how many teams would remain competitive if they lost their leading scorer, leading rebounder, leading play maker and leading defender…. there is a reason the Cavs went from 61 to 19 wins with 35 wins being their high point post Lebron… With Wade and Chalmers as your main back court defenders …. good luck

      “If all your new signings that you’re counting on turn out to be busts, your team won’t be very good.”

      well duh.

  • Z….

    The Heat need to add either Emeka Okafor or Ekpe Udoh, and then they need another 1 or 2 wing players with athleticism that can shoot. They definitely need someone to play the 2. They put that team together, and they’re definitely a top 4 seed in the East with a chance to compete for the improved conference (assuming they remain healthy)

    People need to stop tagging Lebron as the best player in the league especially when Durant is holding the MVP trophy. His impact in Miami is so ridiculously overstated. He had more disappearances in the four finals 4th qtrs than anything else. The Heat got some good pieces this offseason and they’re still not done. No way they miss the playoffs next season.
