Taking a backseat so the Heat can win a championship

I'm watching NBA tv playoff flashback of the heat and looking closely Bron was the main guy Wade was the second guy and bosh third so my question is should that change? They didn't win as Bron being the main player should he be the 2nd or 3rd guy?

My thoughts is he should be the 3rd guy feature wade and bosh as main scoring options and let Bron get slashing to the basket buckets, open corner 3s , let him check the best player on other team This would work and be great for his game bcuz I always felt lebron Neva had true skill set so when it's time for him to step up he cant bcuz he doesn't have one skill he can rely on like Kobe mike magic bird etc. So it's easier to play D on him

Bron is No 2nd Banana

He has HOF #'s, maybe they can feature each player for a Quarter/Set # of plays in the game. They need an identity, the Only Star/Super Star SG/SF Tandem that played & Won a Chip was a 1st Option SG(Guess who?) and the 2nd Option SF (btw the best off-the-ball defender of All Time). I am willing to see how this dynamic unfolds with 2 wing players that dominate the ball. But i am a Huge DWade fan and would give him the Ball & tell him to go 2 Work in the 4th Quarter

Easy to defend LeBron James?

OK. Well, not to many people have found it that easy and I have to say, when LeBron took a back seat to Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in the Finals, people were not exactly thrilled with his performance. I think that LeBron James needs to be more assertive, if anything. The Mavericks had their entire defense focused on LeBron, with a player all over him, constant help at that players disposal and Tyson Chandler or whatever other Mavericks big under the basket watching him like a hawk.

That is the reason Dwyane Wade went off and LeBron unfortunately did very little to attack the basket and open things up. If anything, his lack of aggression was the reason for the Heat's follies in the Finals more so than his being overly aggressive. This is just a complete inapt observation of LeBron James and the Heat circa last season. LeBron James may not have the shooting stroke some other players have, but he is by no means easy to defend.

This is why he has averaged 27.7 points per game over his career and shoots a higher percentage from the field than Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony. I think LeBron James scoring points usually helps the team rather than hurts them, which is why many people wanted him to take more shots rather than defer to teammates in the Finals last year. This is a head explosion type topic.

The Down Part of Curry’s

The Down Part of Curry’s Summer: Overall, this was a very good offseason for Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry. The Warriors made several big moves to improve their standing in the Western Conference, his ankle healed up fully and he became a father for the first time. But, it wasn’t all great for Curry. There was something that really bothered him that could serve as motivation moving forward.

“Being amnestied from a team,

“Being amnestied from a team, being in the playoffs, getting to the second round, I definitely want to prove a lot, but in the right way, not individually,” said Brand. “I’m at a point in my career where I’m not worried about the individual stats, it’s just helping the team win and win big. That’s my goal and being apart of that.”hafe32

It has actually been a pretty

It has actually been a pretty remarkable run for the Celtics. It has not always been pretty, and it has had its share of controversy and heartbreak, but no one in 2008 would have predicted the Celtics would still be in the championship mix in 2013. But while the Celtics run as one of the NBA's elite is not over, the era that started it all is.

His ascension to the role is

His ascension to the role is perhaps the biggest story line in Boston. Doc Rivers has said it. Danny Ainge has said it. So have Garnett and Pierce. Everyone in Green is making sure the world knows that Rajon Rondo is the leader of this team. 0p-0-

The guys not named Rondo are

The guys not named Rondo are right about him stepping up in to a new role. He IS their leader. On the court, the ball is in his hands more than any other. He orchestrates offenses, often independent of Doc Rivers, who is content to let his point guard's CPU process everything he sees before him. And like Garry Kasparov flying through move after move in his head before placing a fingertip on a bishop, Rondo cycles through options at a dizzying mental pace before actually triggering the offense. fdgdsfg43

Rondo's eyes may as well be

Rondo's eyes may as well be motion-detecting cameras, picking up flinches, sideways glances, and missed assignments within milliseconds of them happening. And he has no qualms about letting anyone, from Kevin Garnett to Dionte Christmas, know that what's happening, when it will happen, or why they missed it. fafd3223325

But Garnett, Pierce and Terry

But Garnett, Pierce and Terry have been through the wars. They are still among the best in the business even at combined 106 years old. You do not hang around the NBA into your mid 30's in very important roles unless you know a little something about the game. These guys have forgotten things about basketball that Rondo hasn't learned yet. Of course they will lead. 65675
