Here is where SVG and Otis Smith can truly surpass the Heat. If they will adjust the gameplan to be a "normal" team, they can be a far superior team.
Part 1: ditch totally surrounding Howard with bombers as the primary attack. Make it secondary.
Part 2, trade VC's contract for Antawn Jamison (comparable salaries, plus fillers), and have him play the "Stretch 4" in the high post, and Rashard Lewis can go back to the 3, with Pietrus starting as the defensive-minded 2. That forces LeBron away from the basket to help rebound against Howard and pulls Bosh out as well. Jamison's numbers will match up against Bosh and Pietrus at 6-6 will give the 6-4 Wade a bigger defender.
Think about it, Otis and Stan. You can even take credit for the idea.
