Miami Heat: Complete Preview, Predictions and Storylines to Watch in 2012-13

The Miami Heat are the reigning world champions and have a great chance to become the first repeat champions since the Los Angeles Lakers accomplished the feat in 2009 and 2010.

Ever since LeBron James and Chris Bosh joined forces with Dwyane Wade in South Beach, the Heat have had a giant bullseye painted on them each and every night, but they have been able to pull through with two straight NBA Finals appearances and one victory.

It’s always an impressive feat when a team makes three straight appearances in the championship series, but anything less for the Heat would have been considered a major disappointment—especially considering the lay of the land in the Eastern Conference.

Will they be able to grind out another regular season without suffering any significant injuries? Will their free-agency additions become key contributors? Can any team dethrone the champs or will the Heat raise another banner in the AmericanAirlines Arena?

We’ll answer all of those questions and more in this season preview for the 2012-13 Miami Heat, including information on offseason free-agency moves, the projected starting lineup and depth chart, strengths and weaknesses of the roster, a prediction for the season and much more.
