    Melo can't guard Lebron and visa versa
    Stat>Bosh
    Billups>Arroyo/Bibby
    The only advantage they have is at the 2 but hopefully Landry grows into a John Starks type of role

    I'm not afraid of a city either

    But I'm afraid of the Heat, they'll dominate the East like the Bulls in the 90's.

    Especially as long as D'Antoni sticks around with his no defense BS approach.

    Correct. The only team in the east that can beat Heat are Bulls. I know they just lost 4-1 but next year they will get better. Especially considering the fact that Celtics are getting old, Magic are a mess and Hawks are mediocre as always.

    We need a big (Howard would be awesome but will never happen) and even Dalembert would be a plus...Douglas and Fields need to work their games or trade one of them for a real 2

    Nothing wrong w a lil' healthy fear/ respect.

    It shows you understand what it is you're facing.

    I wonder if the teams left in Miami's wake have any fear going forward..

    Miami are 3 good roster moves away from perennial 60+ win seasons.

    Be it a couple of vets and a new-blood, whatever.

    Look at the difference a healthy Haslem made.

    The entire league fears the Heat, and every display of their dominance changes the future of the EC. Re-signing DW was the best way to start our ball rolling, we effectively have 5 years to create as good a counter to their star power as we can.

    There are those that refer to selective hearing on this, but if Melo signed as a FA, the whole procedure would have been umpteen times easier for us.

    This post is by a person who gets who gets it. Do you know how long it takes to build a "Team" to make it to the Finals. Ask the Mavs who have had 50+ wins in 11 years and only 2 finals "appearances" . If the Mavs win, we still should follow Miami's plan or a plan where our top five matches or exceeds Miami's top five.

    We have to do this fast. Our teamm will get old quick.

    Thumbs up

    The Miami Heat is or are considered a REBUILDING contender team
    for the next six-seasons....the start of a growing dynasty in year one.

    Are NBA teams afraid of Miami? Hell Yeah! some of the NBA teams best
    players will leave as a FA, and take a "PAYCUT" (MLE) to sign with the Miami
    Heat to win a Championship Ring.


    Being a hard-nose Knicks-Fan in the 80's and 90's, I cheered the Knicks on
    throughout every regular season to get hoarse throughout the postseason
    games vs the Larry Bird Cetics and MJ Bulls.
    When we lost in a playoff series vs Boston or Chicago, I actually cheered
    and wanted the Celtics or Bulls team that beat the Knicks in the playoff
    to go all the way to win the FINALS.

    I was a Basketball/ Football player before I became a hard-nose fan of
    the next team...
