Miami Heat Player Power Rankings: Post-December Edition

The Miami Heat closed out 2012 with a bang, ending a two-game skid with an overtime win over their interstate rivals, the Orlando Magic.

With that being said, the Heat are far from perfect. To say that they have lots to work on is a vast, vast understatement.

They almost let Nikola Vucevic out-rebound their entire team with 29 individual boards on Dec. 31, and their defense looks like they're playing with four guys instead of five.

Without the leadership, production and efficiency of LeBron James, the Heat would be a below-.500 team. That's why he's the leading MVP candidate this year, and it's why he's at the top of this power ranking of the Heat's top 12 players.

All statistics are accurate as of Dec. 31.
