When/If the Miami Heat doesn't win a title

It seems there are the strong favorite to win the NBA championship this but what if they don't win? Can they considered their run with James/Wade/Bosh a failure? Do you guys see them making in moves in the front office? or even trading away Bosh to get some new blood in there? I honestly think that Erik Spoelstra will end up losing his job. Pat Riely would be content to keep him around since he couldn't win a title in 2 years with that level of talent. I also think they may consider trading Bosh. They need to get rid of a big contract to free up money for some better talent on the bench, and they certainly will not be trading Wade or James. What are your thoughts on this??

I think the Miami organization will be changing the coaching staff first when this happens. This move is better than trading Bosh or any other starters from Miami. Hope they get to win the title now and create a dynasty with their lineup.

Would you consider Bosh to be "safe" from trades at this point, or do you think Miami would be open to the possibility of trading him for the right player(s)?

I think Bosh is safe. I can think of a right player they would consider trading him for. A lot of people thought he wouldn't do well out of the three stars but he has made his contribution and been an asset to the team. If there is a problem with the team I don't think he is "it".

Bosh is contributing for Miami and he's an important factor to the team. I think Miami should have a Center which is a great rebounder and also a great defensive player. I think, if they got a Center like Chandler or Bynum, then it would be ok to trade Bosh for them.

I think that they do have a pretty good chance of winning the championship but I don't want them to. I'm not a fan of the Miami Heat and I really don't want to see them win, there are a number of other teams I'd rather not see win thought too mainly because I like underdogs and most of the teams that I like aren't the usual playoff contenders. Anyways I do think that Erik Spoelstra will lose his job if the Miami Heat don't win the championship and honestly I don't think it really matters who they have coach that team. I think that literally anybody could be a good coach if they had Dwayne Wade and Lebron James on their team. I do think that the Heat could be facing some trouble towards the end of the playoffs though. I'm thinking that it's probably going to be the Heat versus the Celtics in the Eastern Conference finals and I think the Heat will probably win but the Celtics are still looking fairly good. Once it comes playoffs time though they will be facing some serious trouble if they are matched up against the San Antonio Spurs, Los Angeles Lakers, or the Memphis Grizzlies mainly because they all have really good big men and the Heat are seriously lacking in the center department. At this point my favorite team Dallas has already been eliminated, the Knicks are going down, the Hawks are most likely going down, its looking bad for the Bulls, and I am hoping that the Grizzlies can pull it off against the Clippers. You never really know in the playoffs though.

I agree. The Heat's weakness is at center. The teams that you mentioned will outplay Miami's bigs. I'm a Heat fan and I hope they will win the championship.

Oklahoma City also has no chance if they face a team with dominant big men, but chances are that it could come down to Oklahoma City versus the Heat but both teams have a big weakness at the center position. The Heat can have trouble against the Pacers or the Celtics because they both have some good big men, and like I said the Thunder could have trouble if they face the Lakers, the Grizzlies, or the Spurs. If the Nuggets can beat the Lakers I think things can get interesting too because they are the deepest team in the NBA and the highest scoring team. I would love to see the Nuggets against the Thunder it would be real exciting with really high scoring games. But if Javale McGee can continue to play the way he has been and Kenneth Faried attacking the boards like he always does the Nuggets could also be a problem for the Thunder. Anyway I can't wait to see how things unfold, as you know I'll be hoping for Memphis or the Nuggets at this point because those are the teams that are still in it that I like it the most. You guys both enjoy the playoffs!

The Heat have a very rocky road ahead of them. If they get past the Indiana Pacers, which they are leading the series 3-2, they will either go on to play the 76ers or the Celtics. If they end up playing the Celtics, that'll be tough. The Celtics have beaten up the Heat during the regular season, so why not the playoffs? If they end up playing the 76ers, that should be a pretty easy matchup for them. But if they make it to the NBA Finals, they'll either be playing the Spurs or the Thunder. I'm positive that they'll lose to the Thunder, but the top rated Spurs they may be able to beat. I think the Spurs might choke in the Finals if they make, but only if their playing the Heat.

LeBron doesn't know what is a team, he'll never win until he learns to respect others and listen to the coach, he believes is a bigger star than everyone else, he's good but no one can win alone, not even Michael Jordan could win alone

with all the injuries that are happening to stars on other teams they should have no problems coasting or at least not a big problem getting to the finals. they are definitely the odds on favorite to win the championship. this is just the luckiest playoffs ever when it comes to the heat. i don't see them having this easy of a shot to win a ring anymore. if they don't win a championship this time around i do think the coach will be fired. i also agree with you that there will be some trades happening to get someone else in the post. perhaps maybe dwight howard could join the heat. i just think that's too much star power and too unfair for others teams though. it might even end up backfiring if howard was to join the heat as too many stars have the ability to make a team worse. if howard was just satisfied with rebounding,blocking shots,getting easy dunks, and being a more defensive player then i think it would work. i think that's too far off to really be considering right now though. I say this will probably be the heats year to win it all.

I think the Miami Heat will be win the NBA championship.Lebron James is stronger than ever before. And he is humble low-key.The Heat's weakness is at center,but if they can play Miami basketball.Faster and Stronger. The problem will be resolve. Actually, they are good enough

They have the personnel to win a title right now. That doesn't mean they will. They have to bring it now. If they don't they will undoubtedly have a new coach next year and maybe another shot at it. They can question how the team is built but teams have won without a dominant centre before. If any team can do it, this is one team that should be able. We'll see how they do in the final because I honestly believe they will be there. I think they could lose and still be a contender to win it next year given the chance. They have to look good losing though and the question is: Is that possible?
