Grading the Final Miami Heat 15-Man Roster
The Miami Heat prepare to defend their title once again.

The Miami Heat have set their 15-man roster for the 2013-14 season, and it looks like pretty much what everyone expected it to look like.

The Heat have some guys you may have heard of in their starting lineup. LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, for example. Do those names ring any bells? Udonis Haslem and Mario Chalmers round out the starting five, and the bench contains some veterans who know how to get it done in big spots.

So, of course, it's time to grade the Heat roster. While some of the grades aren't really open to too much interpretation, there are several areas that are a bit questionable. Miami's Big Three has been top-heavy enough to gloss over those holes over the past two years, but it's worth debating whether or not that can happen again this season.

Let's see how prepared the Heat are to defend their title(s).

Note: Grades will be based upon productivity and how well each player fits his designated role.
