Are you still convinced Miami has a lack of depth this season? Even after watching the triple-overtime game against the Hawks while missing stars LeBron James and Dwyane Wade?
C'mon, you're running out of arguments now.
Udonis Haslem is among the NBA leaders in rebounds coming off the bench and was highly missed throughout the regular season. Now that he looks fully healthy, Miami can put in various combinations of players and give its questionable front court a huge boost.
We have already touched on the impact of rookie Norris Cole, but his importance can never be under-acknowledged. He continues to improve his scoring game and is looking like he can be a facilitator on the court.
James Jones has been big as well, as he has hit a high number of three-point attempts thus far in the season. With injuries to Wade and James, he has been a nice fill-in and proves why he should be on the floor more than he is.
Throw in the signing of a veteran wingman in Shane Battier, and it only makes them deeper. He hasn't looked too comfortable so far, but he still plays hard defense and remains an impact while guarding anyone on the floor. Once he gets his shot going he will be a big factor in beating a zone defense.
Miami has yet to let sharpshooter Mike Miller see some court action, but he will bring a dangerous outside shot and some smart defense when healthy.
Still not convinced?
You're just digging for reasons now.
