Your probably closer to the mark, with few exceptions even the legit Miami fans are bad. Poser city down there. They have some of the worlds best talent and still have trouble getting more than half of the attendance in their for the game start. Covered in the 'fashionably late' BS

How Wade ages will really determine how long this core can last. Lebron can't do it alone. So he will need Wade to play very well. And while Wade was playing hurt, he will was pretty big for them. If his injuries continue to be a problem, this core can be short lived.

They're done.. LeBrick is already contented with his *.5 ring.. Lakers will going to win in the next 3 years.. LeBrick at that time will be washed up and Wade will turn into scrub and will be out of the league.. After that, Heat will be irrelevant again for the next decade..

Book it..

They can win at least 2 more. I see them in at least 3 more finals. Who's gonna stop them? No team has legit chances against them in the East. Bulls need good players to be added to their roaster. Celtics are good enough for the conference finals due to their veterans but i dont see them winning against the Heat.

If Lewis and Allen play well they can beat the Lakers too (if the Lakers get past OKC which i doubt).

I'd say 99%, like how it dropped after Lebron left Cleveland

They should be aiming for a few titles but teams like Lakers and Thunder will have the same targets.

Yes, my opinion is five to eight years of contention barring health and contracts.

I can't see a scenario where the three stick together and five years down the road they arent at least fighting in the ECF's.

my main man DWade is the key here

if he's back to 100% all bets are off, but there's a chance he might be done

I honestly believe they are too talented to not win at least 4.

4 is overly optimistic IMO, + LeBron might opt out in 2014

Realistically number 1 contenders up until LeBron turns 31.

I think MAX of 2 more. EVERYTHING depends on Wade. Everything! LBJ can't do it alone (otherwise he would have stayed in CLE) and Bosh isn't enough. If Wade truly is washed up, I think it'd be stupid for LBJ to waste his prime years carrying Wade's former self...

They managed to win with Wade and Bosh at around 80-90%. If healthy, their window should be at least 3 more years, with almost certainly an easy path to the finals for the next 2. Bulls, Celts, and Pacers look like 48-53 win teams and none of them have what it takes to win a 7-game series against a healthy Heat team.

I see the heat contending at this level for 2-3 more years. If they can avoid teams with skilled bigs (grizz, lakers) they will win another chip or two in that time.
