    Default Biggest Threat to the Heat

    Charles Oakley just said it was the Knicks on first take. He feels that the Bulls are done and that they should rest Rose and play for a lottery pick. He also said Boston is a middle of the road team, 4 or 5 seed and that he can't put BK ahead of the Knicks because JJ and Williams haven't played together yet.

    **** yeah! We should be able to go toe-to-to with the Heat with the improvements we've made. Ronnie Brewer is gonna be a very big key to this, as he will get to defend Wade, LeBron, and Ray Allen.

    The best lineup against the Heat would be:
    PG Ray Felton
    SG Shump
    SF Brewer
    PF Melo
    C Chandler/STAT/Camby

    Having Chandler/Cambyman in there would hopefully get us the rebounding advantage, while Shump and Brewer should (although unlikely) hold Wade and LeBron below 30 points each. Melo, as we all know, plays better when he is fitted in the power forward spot. BRING ON THE HEAT.

    PS. I wouldn't say Boston is a middle of the road team though. They took a 3-2 series lead against the Heat in the ECF last season. They should be just fine even though they lost Allen. They acquired Terry and Courtney Lee to compensate for the loss. They're gonna be back in the top 4 in the east along with us, MIA, and Indy.

    I think what people don't take into consideration is that Boston took a 3-2 lead without Bosh. They figured out how to beat the Heat when it was just LeBron / Wade and company. As soon as Bosh returned he added the biggest part of what Miami loves to do in getting the oppositions Bigs out of the paint. With that being said, I believe we have better big man depth at this point than Boston does at the moment.

    seeing how we still managed to pull 1 Win in the playoff's against the Heat with a

    Injured- Baron

    Injured- Lin

    Injured- Shump

    Flu Sick- Chandler

    Fire extinguisher- Amare

    50 Percent healthy -Jeffries

    &

    Inconsistent - JR

    I really like our chances this year

    i'm not going to say were a threat to the Heat until we get out their and start winning games and proving ourselves but i do like the improvements made with the roster.

    OUT- Lin, Jorts, Douglas, Jerome, Jeffries, Bibby, Baron, Gadzuric, Fields

    IN- Felton, Camby, Kidd, Pablo, Kurt, Brewer, White, Copeland, (Chris smith for now)

    I don't know about some of you but.. that's a B+ improvement to me.... well i'll give it a B for now it's a B+ if we sign Birdman, Amundson or Martin

    Anthony/Stoudemire have to combine for 45-60 points combined at night very efficiently

    Felton/Kidd have to run the show and get our guys open and rhythm shots

    Brewer/Shumpert have to shut down the perimeter and hit open shots if H20 can continue to work with Shumpert and help Brewer then we can have a legit combo

    Smith/Novak have to consistently be those 3/4 options

    Chandler/Camby need to protect the rim, rebound the ball and finish dunks and lay ups

    We have a legit 10 man squad barring injuries and if our guys do like I said we can win a title

    A few things would have to break our way.

    The league's anti-flop effort has to work.

    The knicks have establish themselves as the best defensive team in the league. To nullify the hordes of potential superstar "calls" they face against the heat.

    First game of the series and we had played them even through the first. Then the refs gave them 20 something freethrows in the 2nd including back to back flops and a questionable Flagrant 1 because lebron got blindsided on a chandler pick. At which point JVG had to call out the refs. The FT section of the box score for the whole series is a joke and the games were awful to watch the refs made it straight ***** ball.

    Game 1 miami 33 fta new york 11. The rest of the series was called a little bit better but as a fan of basketball the refs where way too much into that series.

    All I'm saying is without all those calls the series was closer than the scores would suggest. You said something about lebron point per da game he on fire hot **** can a ***** get a table dance. I agree he puts the ball in the hole very well.

    My point is miami doesn't want a slowed down halfcourt game everyone knows this. They're biggest strength is athleticism. We have a squad of goons ready to grind it out and play d. All of our big men are better than yours save chris bosh. If knicks have a shot that's it but it won't work if lebron can live at the line.

    I think it's sad that I honestly have no idea how well we will go till I see some games. The sport's media world is a joke at the moment, every 'journalist' bashes the Knicks and shows some of the worse bias. Kidd and Camby were two of the premier UFA's on the market this offseason and as soon as they signed with the Knicks they were called out for their age and labelled over the hill. Anyone know any good, fairly unbiased sites to check up on the basketball?

    That's a wet dream. It would be incredible if that were to happen.

    As a Knicks-fan i was totaly embarrasse over the first game of the Knicks vs Heats playoff series .. we are talking about a 18 to 24 first-quarter, a 13 to 30 second-quarter, 31 to 54 halftime (23 point Heat lead at halftime), which lead to a 16 to 27 third-quarter giving the Heat a 34 point lead to start the forth-quarter. The 100 - 67 win over the Knicks was a first game statement of how high the confidence-level the Heat can perform as a team.

    Since 2008 the Boston Celtics had the best Gellin backcourt guard rotation in the NBA having Rondo/Ray/a lurking Pierce with a part time Tony Allen/Eddie House.

    The 2012-13 season the Miami Heats having a healthy Charmer/Ray/DWade/and lurking-Lebron are the Leagues top best backcourt-rotation of guards .. whom can out-score and out-defend any NBA teams backcourt rotation.
    There are only a few-teams in the league with a dominating package of consistant-guards in their rotation .. The OKC Thunder may have the 2nd best gellin backcourt rotation in Westbrook/Sef/Harden/Manor/and a lurking-Durant.

    It is ashame that our young 2nd season SG-Shump is injured an unable to workout/practice this offseason.

    Had not thought of that, resting Rose is a great idea, like when Robinson went down, they drafted Tim Duncan, and it was a wrap. Blessing in disguise for the Bulls, I think Rose will get back to 100% and he'll drop the buckets.

    Knicks are a serious threat because you have Tyson, you got Kidd, right there they bring the Championship experience to counter the Heat, to keep us steady. And now Melo is coming off from an Olympic GOLD, he's in shape for the first time ever coming into camp, maybe the second time, this is looking good.

    I think Melo can come in and drop 30 with 7 boards and 4 dimes on 46% with 80% from the line.
