Miami Heat: 7 Changes the Team Must Make If They Lose the Finals

Heat executives Alonzo Mourning and Pat Riley will need to make changes if the Heat lose the Finals.

In most cases the solution to a team's problems is almost always "fire the coach."

There's a lot of logic to that, after all, you can't fire the whole team. 

It's not the only solution though. In fact far too often it's sold as a fix-all to a team's problems, when in reality the team's problems run much deeper.

The Miami Heat are down 0-1 in the NBA Finals. The series is far from over, and this is the same Miami team that lost, and then reclaimed home-court advantage, eventually winning their last two playoff series against Indiana and Boston.

Then again there's enormous pressure on Miami to win this season. If they don't there could be major changes made to the Heat.

If the Heat are going to make major changes they need to do so with two major points of emphasis. What was wrong with the current Heat, and what was right. This team that is in its second consecutive NBA Finals is clearly not a bad basketball team. Then again if they were to lose the Finals for the second year in a row that would also show they're not quite good enough yet.
