Much is going to depend on how well Chalmers plays - and I expect him to play very well mainly due to the presence of the big 3.

I think you are correct.
I believe Z will start ,, and will only play 25 spot minutes as in start of game , mid 2nd qtr.. , start of 3rd.. and spot minutes in the 4th.

At the end of the game ,, it depends on who they match up with .. but Bosh and lebron need help down low to play defense .. and someone other than them to get boards.

I think it will take till Jan. 2011 before the team figures out a rotation and feel comfortable. many people have high expectations for this team .. where I think 2011/12 is when some additional moves will occur to put them at the top for the team to beat.

Ideally we would like to end games with Beverly, Butler, Jones, Randolph, Howard

But I'd agree that we're fortunate enough where we can have the most talented 5 be on the floor to finish close games.

What about during the middle stretches of games? Is a lineup of
Chalmers/Arroyo
Wade
LeBron
Bosh
Joel/Z

going to get it done for the first 3 quarters so we don't have to play any of our superstars at the end?

Against better teams are we ever going to play the majority of a game with
LeBron
Wade
Miller
Haslem
Bosh?

Also, I am concerned that Riley/Spo will keep Bosh at PF due to keeping his superstar happy which would either cause mismatches for Haslem or force us to play Joel instead.

Man I hope Arroyo ain't starting. Hopefully Erik realizes Chalmers was the reason why we were so gritty on D back in 08-09.

No way in hell House is starting at PG. He is barely a proper PG and he isn't even capable of being a starter. He is a great spark off the bench at best.

Chalmers
Wade
James
Haslem
Bosh

is something I personally prefer. I'm shocked how some so called "HEAT" fans disrespect Chalmers. He had a great rookie season and wasn't even given much of a chance last season. He was probably the 2nd best player in the playoffs too.

The Heat should bring back Earl Barron. He was putting up 11-12pts and 11-13rbs a game for the Knicks last season.

PG-Chamlers
SG-Wade
SF-Lebitch
PF-Bosh
C-Barron

My opinion is the following: if they decide to defend, it doesn't matter who starts. For this first season this is the main issue: DEFENCE. Can they score big time? Yes they can! Can they defend? We will see...

I think its Chalmers spot to lose in camp. IF he is at least solid he will be the starter.

at end it is:

Wade

In general I think Chalmers and Anthony will start. At center though I suspect it will come down to match ups. In some situations they might opt for size.

I think Z will have his starts.

DWade and LeBron will be doing most of the ball handling anyway. Other than defense and long range shooting...

LeBron
DWade
Miller
Haslem
Bosh

That is the lineup that will see more minutes.
