Quincy Posted June 6, 2013 Report Share Posted June 6, 2013 I'd like to add the 76ers team that faced the Lakers as another example of a crap opponent. Ugh! Jordan worshippers may never admit it, put put a Lebron on all of Jordan's rosters and vice versa, and we have a different story . Lebron with (in various years) Pippen, Horace Grant, Bill Cartright, Tony Kukoc, Rodman, Ron Harper, Steve Kerr, etc....C'mon Also, because of the way Lebron, Bosh and Wade came together and the focus on the Heat's "Big Three", Bosh and Wade have become overrated. I would argue that every championship team that Magic, Jordan, Bird, Dr J, played on had a 2nd and 3d player combo BETTER than Bosh and Wade are THIS YEAR. Howabout: Kareem and Worthy? Kareem and Byron Scott? Pippen and Rodman? Rodman and Ron Harper? Pippen and Cartwright? Parish and Mchale? Moses Malone and Maurice Cheeks? It's not just combos or big 3s though. You rattled off some important guys on those Bulls teams. For the Heat Battier & Miller are guys who know their roles and are good at what they do, and Haslem is a badass who overcame a horrific injury last year. And this year they added Ray Allen & the Birdman. Yes the Heat are light on a big bad center, and I'm not trying to diminish LeBron's greatness, but he's had a good deal of talent put around him. As far as injuries to the older players which might do them in, this is a risk of using older players, and as their opponent is very old, that's not going to work as an excuse for me if they don't do it.
