With each year comes age, and with age comes fatigue. Meaning the importance of managing players' minutes increases.

If the Miami Heat plan on winning more than one NBA championship during the Big three era, moving forward, one of the most important things will be making sure the team is healthy and well-rested come April. A task easier said then done. 

Especially in Miami's case.

Let us not forget that they have yet to finish first in the Eastern Conference. But, when the playoffs rolled around last year the Heat were well-rested and ready to give everything they had as they progressed towards the title—a title they were ultimately able to capture.

With some new additions, the minutes per game breakdown has the potential to look a lot different for Miami this season. Something that should put a smile on any Heat fan's face.

Less regular season minutes for the Big 3 equals more big wins in the playoffs.

Here's how I believe things will play out for the 2012-2013 Miami Heat.
