Add me to a team with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh? We would be downright scary offensively.
I could improve the Heat’s already stellar transition game.
I’m not a great defender, but James and Wade are, and they’d happily help me out on defense to improve their offense.
I could end the looming questions regarding who the ball-handler should be in Miami. LeBron and Dwyane could relax while playing off the ball. I could get Chris Bosh more involved with the pick and roll game. If I’m the floor general for the Heat next year, I’ll make sure everyone gets the ball.
I would be invaluable late in games for their half court offense. Instead of deciding which player will isolate, we can draw up plays and execute accordingly.
I’ll have to take a huge pay cut to play in Miami.
Would LeBron and Dwyane want me there? If I'm going to take a massive pay cut to play in Miami, I want to know that their superstars are on board.
I may become a glorified spot-up shooter. I’d be great at doing that (much more consistent than James Jones), but that’s not the role I want.
Miami would have to switch around their entire system to accommodate me.
Overall Grade: A
If the pressure is no longer on LeBron and Dwyane to handle the ball, they can focus all their attention on coming off screens or going backdoor for dunks. If Miami gives me the keys to the Heat’s engine, we would be a serious threat to win a title.
