Chalmers and wade were beast defense back then.. bosh became one of the best hedgers against the PnR during his stint with miami.. you cant use defense as your argument here. Miami wouldve had a great defense completely without lebron. They already had it before he got there and they added one of the most mobile PFs in the league.
I already made this kind of post but the stans ignored it. They keep acting like Bron taught Spo how to implement a defensive scheme or something when Miami played the same kind of defense before he joined (and Bosh also had big defensive impact). Chamlers/Wade/Melo/Bosh would of course have been capable of running the same trapping and disruptive defensive scheme.

Yeah, was mostly quoting to reaffirm the point as it's been made a bunch of times now and yet no Bron-lover has yet bothered to acknowledge it or accept that Miami Heat defense didn't start and end with Lebron. In fact, Miami stopped playing good defense last season while Lebron was still there (a deterioration that he was a big part of).

Melo isnt on LBJ's level in any thing but scoring. Bottom line you add LBJ to almost any team and they are contenders you add Melo to almost any team and they are still just any team.
