LeBron James is the most talented player in the NBA today, but he is also one of the more versatile players to ever step on the court. With his ability to guard anyone on the floor as well as dominate offensively, he is the perfect option to play power forward for the Miami Heat.

While the Heat lack depth in valuable size, that didn't seem to slow them down last season. They were able to work a smart game plan which countered that weakness with true strengths.

We might not see this option happen right away, but don't be surprised to see James take over the power forward spot come playoff time. This will help crunch the deep rotation and utilize each player to their fullest ability.

A big reason, aside from James' talent, is the effect this move has on the rotation itself. Lebron is the ultimate team player in basketball because of his ability to open up so many opportunities for others around him, and this will prove exactly why.

With that said, check out how this move can make himself and the Miami Heat better when the time comes.
