Week 2 Progress Report for Each Player on the Miami Heat

Since the last weekly progress report, the Miami Heat went 3-0, Mario Lopez and Khloe Kardashian officially exchanged reproductive organs on the TV show X-Factor and the Los Angeles Lakers threw a vicious elbow to the Nielsen ratings of Oklahoma City's newest soap opera, "As the Beard Turns," by firing their head coach five games into the season. 

Oh yeah, and there was a presidential election that took place somewhere in between. 

But amidst the chaos, there is really only one pertinent fact that stands out above the rest: LeBron James currently leads the Miami Heat in points, rebounds and assists.  

Other facts worth mentioning?

1) The Heat are still first in team offensive statistics.

2) They are 26th in team defensive statistics, which is based on a team's rebounds, blocks and assists. 

3) They are 26th in the league in team rebounding

4) Their bench production has improved to 17th in the league this year after being ranked 28th last year.

All in all, the team currently stands atop the Southeast Division in first place and possesses the second-best record in the Eastern Conference. 

Which is why, for whatever the Heat's shortcomings, it is still very early in the season, and its single biggest development (the addition of Ray Allen) has been nothing short of a success thus far.
