They can't both be terrible for long stretches and each has a real history of carrying their teams alone. The real problem, if they really have any, is that everybody but the big two is afraid to make decisions and take shots on their own initiative. It's the same thing as in Cleveland when Lebron would pound the ball and all would watch. Mike Brown allowed that to continue, we'll see if Spo can impose confidence on the role players. As for who plays C? Anybody willing to be active and play a little D, hit an open J without hesitation (even Bosh
had hesitation last year quite often) and they'll continue to be leading contenders. They go as the big two go. Take one away, whether due to injury or not, and that team becomes one of the many contenders.
It's funny, Reggie Evans would be a fantastic fit on Miami.
I think that we both know that that's not true.
The Heat were at their most dominant when all 3 stars were involved and playing well.
Take ANY one out of the equation and they're not winning a title.
