Default How many more titles can Miami win?

What is their window do you think?

With LeBron only being 27 at this moment and Wade working on his jumpshot and what not, I firmly believe Miami can contend for 3-5 more years. Especially if LeBron continues playing at that level?

I can see them contending every year as long as Lebron is playing at a high level and Wade can be Wade.
I can see them winning one more ring with this big three.

No doubt their fanbase will drop my 50% when they do stop contending.

I give it 3-4 years, with the Big 3.

If everyone stays healthy and the big three stay together, they've got like 5-8 years left of contending.

Are Miami fans sure that the big 3 will all stay together past 2014?

ceiling: 3-4 more titles
floor: 1 more title. i just can't see them winning at least one more time. if they don't, that's disappointing

Default Re: How many more titles can Miami win?

In all honesty, I can see this going two ways:
Way One - After going through a lot of effort in the post season to finally win (see Game 4 of Indiana and Game 6 of Boston), LeBron begins to gas out and they aren't willing to contend or stay motivated (yes, I do question that with a team that gives 0 damns about the regular season). So a fate like the Big 3 Celtics - A ring and continuous contention, because even with a questionable motivation they'll stay strong.
Way Two - LeBron decides to pummel my theory to the ground (I actually am not convinced he has peaked) and they stay in contention for another 3 years and win another ring or two (hell maybe they 4peat ). With Wade on the decline, I can't see them staying in contention for more than five or four years.

So, I imagine Way two happening. I still have plenty of doubts they won't repeat, I still doubt their "olol regular season doesn't matter" attitude another attitudes they hold, but I do think LeBron will have a better year than this year. So I think it's reasonable to say one or two rings is possible.

When LeBron moves to his next team, you'll have a brand new franchise to pretend to be a fan of. Why care about Miami in the long run?

I'm a Wade fan first, Miami heat fan second. I'll still follow and root for them after the Big 3 retire.

5-8 years contending? really? Thats the kind of window Thunder have if they keep Harden. Miami's window is realisticly 3 years with the current core.I guess it depends how Wade does age. IF Wade can still be a top player at age 33-34 they will still be a top contender. But their lack of depth and cap space would be an issue going forward. They should be aiming for a few titles but teams like Lakers and Thunder will have the same targets.
