Even with Amare/Lebron, we would have been competing with LA, Boston, Miami, Orlando, San Antonio, etc etc because they all have 2-3 star players too. The way it is now Miami are a total powerhouse team and it's no question of whether they will win a title. Other teams have to work for it whereas this team its virtually guaranteed.
Add the fact that he's taken a step down the ladder from being a leader to a follower and you should get the idea.
I know what you mean about this is all getting out of hand, its 3 days on and the majority of this forum is still bitching about Lebron, but we're also psyched up about our own team and our chances to compete down the line.
You seem to kinda miss the point.
