Yea, adding a 24/11 PF in Chris Bosh would have helped them somewhat. Once they added Bosh, Miami was already looking good, and that signing put them on the same level as Cleveland(if Lebron had stayed) and Boston. Miami was looking like a contender in the East before Lebron even signed.
Then you add Shane Battier, who is a defensive specialist, knock down three-point shooter, and ultimate teammate.
Also, give the three all stars and Shane Battier the guy who leads the NBA all time three pointers made, Ray Allen.
Didn't add enough shooting with Bosh, Battier and Allen? Here's mike Miller and Rashard Lewis. Gotta have someone to catch alley oops so better add Birdman too. Give them some size off the bench when they don't want to stretch the floor at every position.
I'd say the 06-'10 Miami Heat lead by Dwyane Wade added a great deal of talent that team besides Lebron. The Miami Heat are incredibly well built for the current NBA.
@Bold Even you don't agree with yourself.
