I can't tell you how much I hate this line up. In NBA 2k13 this is also their default starting squad. I get killed on the boards because I'm always roaming the perimeter with Lebron. Bosh isn't a great rebounder to begin with.

I like the traditional line up with a true center that is in there to get rebounds. At the very least they should have Haslem in there. Then you have a nice bench with Ray Allen, Battier, and Rashard Lewis. I guess they think Battier is going to be some kind of master 3 point shooter like he was in the finals.

If anything, Lewis will hurt them big time. He can't guard no one and he can't score other than wide open 3's. He got totally exposed in the finals against the Lakers a few years back. Frankly, I'm surprised Miami even signed him, but I guess they are trying to add to their plethora of 3 point specialists.

Don't see how this will work consistently.

Lol. I use many different teams. I use the Blazers primarily and do just fine. My friend picks the Thunder though and I need to match star power with star power.

They did it last year just fine in the playoffs and in some regular season games. I don't see the isuse. Plus Battier isn't going to be guarding PF's, LeBron is.

LeBron will guard PF's on defense, Battier SF's on defense. Ibaka guarded Battier a bit in the finals.

So really, if anything, LeBron is more of the PF than Battier.

How are you about to tell me that if he went through all of that, he would have still had the knee injury? Dude put up 23, 5, 4 on 50% going on one knee that he had to have scoped right after the season. Imagine if he were healthy.

Yeah They are until somebody proves they can beat them. Having Battier could be an issue vs L.A for example but having Bosh and Haslem to spread the floor could also be a problem for L.A to deal with too. Also it must be said if Lebron plays like he did in the playoffs last year that alone gives them an advantage, Hes at the age where he is entering his prime and should only be better.

Be interesting if they can get much out of Rashard Lewis. He could be another weapon to use as yet another shooter they have to use.

Miami fans happy with Ray so far?

Celtics - KG, Bass/Sullinger
Nets - Lopez, Humphries, Baltche
Knicks - Amare, Chandler, Camby
Pacers - Hibbert, West
Sixers - Bynum, Hawes

^Every one of those should abuse Bosh/Battier.
