The Miami Heat's 2009-2010 campaign is over after they were defeated by the Boston Celtics in five games in the team's first round matchup. Miami put together a decent season, finishing 47-35 and capturing the Eastern Conference's fifth seed.
They were once again led by their fearless captain Dwyane Wade, who finished in the top 10 in scoring, assists, and steals for the second straight year.
The Heat were pretty good considering their lack of depth and they certainly maximized their roster's potential by coming just three victories short of a 50-win season. However, they were only good enough to reach the first round of the playoffs and could only manage one victory against the Celtics.
With the Heat's season over and the 2010 offseason approaching, the central issue becomes Wade's future with Miami. Will Miami's early exit affect his decision to resign? Or is he confident that the front office can lure free agents to Miami and surround him with the proper talent to make the Heat championship contenders again?
Here is a breakdown of how Miami's early playoff exit will affect the offseason plans of the one and only Dwyane Wade.
