Looks like it is going to be a long off-season for the Miami Heat after being swept by the younger and hungrier Chicago Bulls. This series was a microcosm of this Heat teams entire season, as they thought they could win on reputation alone. Being a Heat fan for life, I can honestly say that this was the most miserable season I have endured. Injuries hit us from opening day and we were never able to find a flow because of that. We never had a chance to see if last years lineup was able to valiently defend their championship, cause we could never get all those guys on the court for a considerable amount of time. How did we ever expect to make a run in the playoffs, with this lack of cohesion. I was duped like a lot of fans into thinking that once the playoffs started Wade would find a way to overcome his injuries and make everyone around him look great again, but it just was not in the cards. Last years championship run was a mixture of Wade turning his game up and the guys around him hitting open shots. After Wade's shoulder and knee injuries Wade never hit his stride, and the guys around him gave him no support. Outside of James Posey and Undonis Haslem, I have a hard time naming one player on that team that looked like they cared what became of this season. Where were you Shaq, Antoine, and J Will? You guys are supposed to be the other offensive weapons, but timidness and some untimely calls took you out of the series. So where do the Heat go now? There are some free agents on the team worth looking into keeping like Posey and Kapono, and some guys who look like they will retire, like Mourning and Payton, but none of those really makes that much of a difference. With those two retirments, they don't clear much space on our cap, since they were both making the minimum. Kapono led the league in 3 point %, but thats all he brings to the table. He is a one dimensional player, that some team will fork out good $ for, but I hope it is not the Heat. If we could keep Posey at a reasonable price, I am all for it. He adds much needed D and hustle, that really showed in the playoffs, but that only does so much for us. I think they really need to address the point guard slot. With Payton gone and JWill giving us nothing these days, it is time for an overhaul of the position. We need a guy who can get the team set in their offensive and defensive sets. Williams was always a terrible defender, but we were able to mask that by bringing in Payton down the stretch, but those days are long gone. Think of an Earl Watson or an Anthony Johnson as a stopgap, while we search for a long term answer in the draft. This is a crucial off-season for the Heat, and I hope as a fan they find a way to make some moves, because the NBA is better off with their superstars, like Dwayne Wade, playing on competetive teams instead of a bad team, like Kevin Garnett.
