With the regular season underway, many spectators are constantly changing their opinion about who will win the title.
After losing their first game to the Celtics, the Heat were called out on their talent and the Trio’s hype was automatically put to rest.
However, the Heat made a huge comeback in their next three games by winning by no less than 10 points.
Even though many have given credit to the Trio of the Heat, and fans are pumped up more than ever about the team’s future, there are 10 signs that prove LeBron James and Co. are doomed to fail.
As amazing as Dwyane Wade is, he has a history of injuries. The chances of Wade getting seriously injured again are higher than you may think.
If the unfortunate were to happen to Dwyane Wade, the Heat would be knocked out faster than someone can blink. Take away Wade from the Heat squad, and what do you have left?
LeBron and Bosh.
LeBron has had problems with his elbow. If those issues rise during this season, one of their major three players would be out, or even worse, a more serious injury could always keep the star from his game.
Always expect the unexpected.
Bosh hasn’t had any injuries, but if something were to unexpectedly place him on the bench, the Heat automatically lose one of their bigger guys. And with a league with great, huge centers, that would be good for no one.
The Heat have an amazing roster of stars these days, but role players are something else.
Mike Miller and Eddie House are a good start.
Now that Miller has already gone down for a few months, how much are the Heat left with? How much can you really expect from Carlos Arroyo and Zydrunas Ilgauskas?
Even with Miller, the Heat's bench is looking weak, to say the least.
The Heat needs to manage to stay healthy and off the bench…that, and find some way to get another role player via trade.
While he has proven to be a very intelligent coach, Pat Riley is waiting in the wings. They have put all their eggs in the superstar basket, and they don't want anyone dropping it.
What is that going to do to Spoelstra's confidence?
If the Heat trip and fall, or fail to meet the season's expectations, you can expect to see him job hunting shortly after.
Changing coaches mid-season is never a good thing, not even when it's Pat Riley. Coaches teach different approaches to achieve victory, and conflicting messages can only hurt this team's chances of getting the ring.
All this chatter about how LeBron and Wade are going to be constantly running the points just needs to end.
Mario Chalmers is still going to have to match up with someone every night, and if not him, it will be Carlos Arroyo. He will still have to defend the league's best guards.
He will still have to create a certain amount of ball movement and distribution. He will also still have to provide some sort of leadership on the court.
He will end up being a glaring weakness on this team, and it will matter a whole lot more than fans seem to think.
While Anthony is more than a suitable replacement, he's so far from a starter. He's scrappy and all those other terms people say about role players, but he's going to get eaten alive by the competition.
They're going to shoot over him, pass over him, back him down, post him up and make the Heat pay with every point.
How do you have someone his size as your last line of defense?
If the Trio are racking up the points, that’s not only going to put a lot of pressure on them, but a lot of pressure on other teams to stop them from doing so.
The Heat need to be well-rounded and stay consistent on possession of the ball for each individual.
Let’s be honest, most of America isn’t too fond of the Heat. Their chances of being confident and cheered for on the road aren’t likely.
So, they need to realize the importance of racking up the wins at home and take advantage of it.
Yes, these three stars have played together before, but all that aside, they’ve been spoiled for far too long.
These guys are used to being THE MAN on their own team, with their own spotlight.
Having to share it has seemed all fine and dandy so far, but give it time and having that much fame on one team can only lead to a disaster.
So far, they are the only team to have beaten the Heat and it was at home, as their season opener.
It seems like this could be the only team to do so this season, as the Heat have already taken down Orlando in a brutal battle.
The Celtics don’t only have the size and talent, but they’ve been together for a while and know how to play the game, which they do oh so well.
If the Heat can pass the Celtics, then the Lakers should be their last challenge in getting the ring.
However, the Lakers have had a team of talent and success for the last two years and history tends to repeat itself.
I doubt they are willing to go down without a fight, especially to a team that was thrown together over the summer.
