Becoming more persuaded by Heat’s chances

They got a center and a shooter in Ilgauskas and Miller. But who’s distributing the ball? And can you name a champion without someone coming off the bench? I remain unconvinced that the Heat are the favorites to win next year. I suppose they are starting to convince some guys to play for less money in order to win a championship. But still, Jordan’s Bulls had B.J. Armstrong and John Paxson dishing the ball. Can Mike Miller do anything but shoot? Can he pass? Can he defend? The Heat are not a complete team. They will score a lot, but will they keep Kobe and Gasol from scoring just as much? Not for 7 games.

At this point, Lebron James will be playing point guard. I don’t see that assuaging any hatred from Cleveland for embarrassing them on national TV.

The one guaranteed thing is that the Heat will be fun to root against.
