Lebron James holding 2013 O'Brien Trophy

 The Miami Heat are one of the top franchises in the National Basketball Association (NBA). They compete in the Southeast Division of the Eastern Conference and have won 3 NBA championships in the last 7 years (2006, 2012, 2013).

The Miami Heat have a so-called "big 3" of Lebron James, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosh. NBA MVP Lebron James is clearly the leader of the team. Currently they are the top team in the NBA, and will continue to be among the premier teams in the league for years to come.

Miami has the NBA MVP Lebron James and a strong supporting cast, including three point shooter Ray Allen, guard Dwayne Wade and center Chris Bosh. They can play lock down defense although they don't have a lot of "bigs".

Lebron 2013 Highlights


Lebron James is the key to everything the Heat does. Even though they have a "big 3," Lebron is definitely the "The Big 1" during many games. He is either the team leader, or top 3 on the team in every major statistical category. Both the offense and defense run through Lebron. Dwayne Wade cannot be forgotten, he is still an NBA All-star who is magnificent at getting to the rim and finishing. His shot can be inconsistent at times, but if he gets in a groove, he is almost unstopable. Chris Bosh is a very skilled big man who prefers to stay on the perimeter and shoot jump shots. However, he can go down low and play very well in the post against any opposing big man. The "big 3" is surrounded by a cast of great 3-point shooters such as NBA all-time 3-point field goals made leader Ray Allen and Mike Miller who space the floor to allow James and Wade room to get to the basket. The rest of the supporting cast are either NBA journeymen who play with passion and are good for any team, or old veterans looking for one last chance to win a championship.

The combination of James, Bosh, Allen and Wade need to score a combined 80+ pts in order for the Heat to win.

The Miami Heat are coming off their 3rd championship appearance and 2nd championship win in a row. They will not be loosing any of the "big 3" this offseason. It would seem that they have nothing to worry about except for signing new free agents to replace any retiring veterans, or resigning any bench players that they would like to keep. Currently the Miami Heat are in a great position. All is well down in South BeachCool

Miami is on a mission. They came back from a 3-2 deficit in 2012 to beat the Celtics in the Eastern Conf finals. In 2013, they beat the Pacers in a grueling 7 game series. They have the home court advantage in the 2013 NBA Finals vs the Spurs. The supporting cast of Wade, Bosh, Allen and Anderson are contributing strongly.

Future Assessment

The future is bright and there is nothing to worry about. Assuming Lebron doesn't suffer any freak/serious injuries and decides to re-sign with Miami when he becomes a free agent. If he does leave the front office will be strained to find a combination of players to compensate for what Lebron alone can accomplish. This is all speculation, so based on the facts the future for the Heat is awesome

Pacers vs Heat

Miami looking strong for scoring 95+ pts per game, making them competitive to win each game

The Miami Heat should have nothing to worry about. None of the players seem to grab negative attention and with Pat Riley at the helm, fans in Miami should be free of stress.

Joey McMahon
2013-06-04 15:09:40 Low

Risk in the NBA Finals series is fairly low for the Miami Heat. They have their full lineup, and players are healthy. Dwayne Wade is the one who has had some nagging injuries and at times does not have the lift, explosiveness or shooting ability that he usually has.

KEEP DOING WHAT YOUR DOING. Two championships in two years, so the Heat have to be doing something right.Smile

Game Plan      
Joey McMahon
2013-06-04 15:10:36 Key

Good rebounding, capitalize on fast break opportunities, get good point production from Allen, Bosh and Wade. James will deliver typical 25+.

Winning Probability

Choose Miami on the bets. Miami will surpass expectations.

Lebron has two modes.

  1. I am the team
  2. I am the leader of a team

When Lebron is in mode #1, his team loses although he puts up incredible numbers for shot attempts, points and rebounds. But he doesn't get the help of his supporting cast, and that's the difference in the game.

When Lebron is in mode #2, that's when he's most lethal. Not that he'll score his personal best, but he'll facilitate and enable solid play from his supporting cast on offense and defense.

 Joey McMahon  2013-06-05 10:46:10  Awesome  

Lebron is having an outstanding year (2012-2013). He's the NBA MVP for the fourth time. He has led the Heat into the NBA Finals vs the Spurs. He dominates all aspects of the game. He's aiming for his second NBA title. He's getting his teammates involved, showing them confidence and trust, and yet taking over the game if and when they fall short.
