The core group of the Miami Heat has played 300-plus games over the past three seasons, and we're still learning more about them with each passing day.
Whether it's the emergence of a forgotten bench player or the unique dominance of a superstar, Miami continues to grow and evolve as a team each time they step out onto the court. LeBron James is the unquestioned leader, but the roles of his supporting cast are constantly morphing and shifting.
What this ultimately means is that Miami may be tougher to deal with now than when they captured the Larry O'Brien Trophy a year ago. The more that other teams learn about what the Heat are capable of, the harder it is to stop them.
