2010-11 NBA Predictions: 5 Reasons Durant-Westbrook Will Outclass LeBron-Wade

With the new trio being put together in Miami, many people are focusing mostly on LeBron James and Dwayne Wade as a legendary duo.

Many people are quick to assume that because they are two of the best players in the game, they will easily mesh and play great with one another. But there's a reason teams usually don't have more than one elite scorer on one team.  There's only one basketball, after all. 

Brandon Roy said he's still happy that Greg Oden was drafted by the Blazers because Kevin Durant and himself would not be able to co-exist on the same team for the fact that they are both scorers. 

Ray Allen fits with the Celtics because he has the only role for scoring, not necessarily creating, which is obviously Rajon Rondo's job.  Kevin Garnett is a defensive and emotional leader for a team.  Boston's newest Celtic, Shaquille O'Neal, has the job of taking up space and falling out the ground every 10 seconds.

I do realize that LeBron is more than a scorer, but that's what he is great at.  And maybe you didn't know, but Dwayne Wade can do a little scoring himself.
