It turns out this wasn't going to be the cakewalk that many envisioned the Miami Heat winning a championship would be. For some reason, it takes more than three elite players and a below average supporting cast to win titles.

Actually, it just might because the Heat came two games away and a mental collapse of a star player away from winning an NBA title in their first season together. Even with Mike Miller and Udonis Haslem dealing with injuries for the majority of the season, the big three still nearly got it done before reaching the NBA Finals and becoming a part of one of the worst choke jobs in postseason history.

The 2010-11 season is in the past. The team must now look toward new challenges in the 2011-12 season that includes these five reasons that includes the outside influences that they will be taking on and more importantly, the inside reasons as to why they didn't win last year and what could be holding them back this upcoming season.
