Ranking the Biggest Threats to a Miami Heat NBA Championship Repeat

JR Jackson@@JRSportBriefAnalyst INovember 16, 2012

The 2012 NBA champion Miami Heat are already off to a fast start this season.

Many analysts and oddsmakers have them penciled the Heat in the NBA Finals this season and have them as overwhelming favorites to get LeBron James his second ring.

The combination of James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh have been under intense media scrutiny over the past two seasons, but with their postseason domination last year and a revamped bench featuring Ray Allen, unseating them as king of the Association is going to be tough. 

Obviously, teams in the Eastern and Western Conference are hoping to challenge Miami in its path to a repeat championship. In the video above, Assistant NBA Editor Joel Cordes and I rank who they consider the biggest threats to the Miami Heat.
