Bosh has gone as a C before, and that could easily happen again. And Garnett could easily get hurt. Maybe two coaches would vote against him out of spite.

I was thinking about this last night...can't see Bosh being an all-star this season. I wonder if he's going to have any turmoil as his individual star diminishes but the team he's on continues to win.

its more than that LX...
people hate tag-alongs... people are annoyed by fame chasers.
bosh was ripped over the offseason, and i dont see any coaches - or media for that matter - who will want to vote for him and support the guy.... he's pretty much lost all his likability, and 'underdog' persona.

and whats worse is that his stats have been far from stellar... 12/8 is not all star numbers.
they will win A LOT of games thanks to him being in the lineup, but he will not be an allstar this year - that is my prediction.

12/8 and holding teams to low percentages so that you only have to play 28 minutes per game is pretty AS worthy in my books.

In any case, the only thing that matters is the playoffs. Bosh has been to a good number of meaningless AS games. He hasn't played a whole of meaningful big games. If he shows up when it counts, then he's a shoe in as an AS for many years to come. If he doesn't show up like a true star, then it's all going to be about stuff that doesn't mean shit such as likability.

The Heat are so good that they will win more games than they play.

Btw, on the main page we have 3 Miami Heat threads?? WTF, we're turning into a Heat forum.
A bit early for those types of predictions, ain't it Jeff?

Looking at our chemistry, the friendships off the court shared and the fact that winning cures everything (especially when the games are over half-way through the 3rd, I normally call them with about a minute left in the 2nd with the way we have been playing), I don't see ego issues coming into play, and if they do it would be years down the road, definately not happening in year one my friend.

The third wheel lead all players in points and rebounds tonight, and looks to be doing a good job at making the Heat come together and look like a team.

Once again they are back to stifling defense. No woes to speak of, other than needing a point guard that is automatic from the elbow. Chalmers gets left alone a lot. Surprising they don't use House more off the bench. I think Spo wants the bench to eat clock, and House has a tendency to shoot quick threes.

They've looked like a team when they play teams that just aren't that good right now.

Atlanta played well but when you're missing Johnson you're just not there yet.

I've seen Miami look like teams against the bad teams and look terrible against the good ones. It's against the good ones, where they're down a few points, that they get into their old habits of playing iso basketball. They're a top 4 team in the East but they're going to struggle against Boston if Boston stays healthy.

But when you think about it realistically, they should be struggling against those teams right now. Boston is one of the two best basketball teams in the world.

And then it's just easy to forget about how old Wade/Bosh and Lebron are. Bosh is 26...When you think about what he's been through as a 25 year old the last few years, he had a lot of off-court drama going on that I can only imagine caused a great deal of internal stress for him. It's understandable in my eyes why his game might of not gelled with his teammates as much as Raptor fans would of hoped.

The point is the best basketball is most likely ahead of these guys. Most great basketballers peak in their 30s, they might be a really good team at the end of the season.

And then think that Lebron was almost taking Boston on by himself, add a couple guys like Wade and Bosh into a best of 7 series on Lebron's side...

That series will be a war.

the isos against stiff competition early in the season, could have been about the stiff competition, or it could have been about it being early in the season. Considering we're talking about guys that need to make some adjustments, and a couple of big injuries being in play, I think it's fair to say it was just early in the season.

Was it Orlando that couldn't beat many good teams when they ended up going to the finals? It happened recently with some team, I think it was them. we're not even a week into December. Lots of time left. And time probably is not on Boston's side exactly.

I can see Amare taking Bosh's spot on the Eastern All Star Team

I'm sorry but I might have to repost this again in several months:

ABC's Jeff Van Gundy: Miami Heat will break Chicago Bulls' win record

• The Heat not only will be great, but historically great. So predicts the co-lead NBA analyst for ABC/ESPN.

``They will break the single-season win record [of 72],'' Jeff Van Gundy said. ``And I think they have a legit shot at the Lakers' 33-game [winning] streak [in 1971-72], as well. And only the Lakers have even a remote shot at beating them in a playoff series. They will never lose two games in a row this year.

``They have put together a much better roster than anybody could ever have expected,'' Van Gundy added. ``There is now no good way to defend them. They are unguardable. They are indefensible. They are just too good and have added so much shooting and are so versatile that they will score at will.

``And with Erik Spoelstra coaching, they will be in the top three defensive teams in the league, as well. The other 29 teams better hope the lockout gets moved up a year.''

Michael Jordan's Bulls set the regular-season victory mark at 72-10 in 1995-96.

Another lopsided win - holding GSW to 37 percent shooting.

Another 2 weeks for Spoelstra?
