Lineup of Beverly, Harden, Parsons, Lebron, Howard will be great. I'd even try to trade Harden for 'Melo.
If he does go to Houston - you'll see all the ppl who have been trashing Howard for past two years will once again label him superstar and top 10 player lol
He needs to go to Houston and I hope for him he does. Miami has a bench of a bunch of old has been players who are mid to late thirties. Who knew Wades knees would collapse on him so fast? I bet Lebron thought Wade would hold up longer than this. 32 and completely finished. That's just sad. Most guys can make to 35 or even 36 or 37. No way he is on a Big 3 anymore. Not even Big 2. Bosh is so soft and just likes to shoot from the outside. He doesn't want to mix it up in the middle fighting for rebounds.
Wade started to decline last year and it was worse this year. Missed 1/3 of the games and faded fast in the playoffs. No way that gets better as time goes on. It will get worse and worse. Lebron needs to bail. This team looks like a Big 1. Or Big 1 1/2 if you count Bosh as a half since he is so soft and only shows up about 1/2 the time.
Houston would be incredible with Lebron. It's the perfect lineup for Lebron and a deeper, longer bench with younger more active players. The Heat are so old and slow down the bench after the 3. Wade looks like he is 42 and not 32.
He says he likes Miami and doesn't want to leave but he's got to go IMO. There is no use sticking around there any longer. Wades knees will just get worse and worse. The bench is so bad and they are too pressed against the cap to add bench talent.
Melo instead of Harden would be awesome. Not sure if they can pull that off. But even Harden is not bad.
