If not for one of the most miraculous plays in NBA history—a game-tying corner three from Ray Allen in Game 6 of the 2013 Finals—we’d be speaking of the Miami Heat in starkly different terms.

With the summer’s free-agent frenzy set to begin, however, the Heat have perhaps more unanswered questions than any other league power.

Foremost among them: With each having the right to opt out of his contract, where will LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh suit up next season?

Even if the Heat bring back their Big Three, however, rounding out the roster stands to be a significant challenge indeed.

To retain their status as the Eastern Conference’s foremost franchise, and to have any chance of beating the best of the West, Miami must address eight key questions in particular.

If they don’t, this time next year may find fans wondering whether LeBron’s two titles were less a product of prudent planning than the random musings of Lady Luck.
