Miami had a great promising team when they made it into the second round of the playoffs in 2003-2004 with Odom, Caron Butler, Rafer, Haslem and Wade.
That team probably wouldn't have won a championship as soon as the team with Shaq did, but would've been one of the top tier teams in the East for a long time.
edit: Just read Cling's post. Whoops, basically the same thing he said.
