No team stands a chance. In the playoffs (when they try) and not in the regular season (when they sometimes chill), the Heat would slaughter the Knicks or Pacers.
As for the Finals, OKC obviously got worse by downgrading their SG position, so if Miami destroyed them last year they will likely do the same this year. If San Antonio makes it, they'll put up a good fight but are simply overmatched by the Heat's superior talent.
All give Miami problems in recent years. Any of those teams plus San Antonio CAN beat Miami in a series. Would they? Most likely not due to Miami having the most unstoppable force in the league in Lebron, the fact that refs give them the benefit of the doubt more and Miami's finals experience in recent years. The wording was "can" though and all of these teams abuse Miami in the paint.

Get the hell out of here, the Heat only get 13 most free throws attempts despite having the league's top 2 slashers. LeBron leads the league in points in the paint and he only averages 6 ft's per game, since he's strong and the refs don't call the foul when he gets hit, if LeBron gets the call that the likes of Durant, Harden, Kobe receive then we can talk.
