What do you think is really wrong with the Miami Heat?

They have continue to struggle especially closing out games.

What do you think is their problem?

One thing that I see as a reoccuring problem, at least in the games vs the Bulls and the Magic is the Heats lack of depth being exposed. They come out flying high early, but over the course of the game, wear down. I think they can correct that in any given game, but in the playoffs, that could pose a really big problem in a 7 game series.

I see also a problem of being predictable in a close game. It seems to me that Lebron is always at the top of the key and driving to the hoop. I wonder why they don't decide on whether who is open and have that player take the shot. If anything, Wade is a better closer than Lebron.

- No big man downlow.
- The others don't get any shots in. They are lucky combined to shoot as much as 1 of the 3. In example during Chicago... Lebron 18, Wade 19, Bosh 14, all the rest combined 17.

100% agree.

Additionally, against the better teams they generally get beaten badly on the boards which is where the Bulls have generally killed them in particular.

It's going to be interesting watching the Knicks and Heat fight each other for role players in the off-season. Imagine a Tyson Chandler, Noah or young camby type on either of those teams.....huge huge impact.

To look at the glass 1/2 full one could say that it's amazing how good the Heat are with no bench and a few starters that should be 7th men somewhere.

Both James and Wade need to adapt to playing off the ball. LeBron is not a point guard. He is a good play makers, but not a great one. He should have someone feeding him the ball not the other way around. He would be so much more effective if he were catching the ball in striking position vs trying to take someone off the dribble from the top of the key. Amazingly, Miami's offense in the half court set looks eerily similar to Cleveland's old offense. LeBron should either be posting up, or cutting to the rim without the ball. He is the least effective when he is bringing the ball up the middle of the floor.

Also, Wade needs to reassert his leadership over that team. He needs to demand that ball in the last six minutes of every game.

They just don't have chemistry. It's every player for themselves and they have little to no depth. To have three popular players on the same team sometimes won't pan out.

It takes time to build chemistry. It's obvious they aren't going to make it to the finals playing like that and MOST serious NBA observers did not predict they'd be instantly at that level.

Again, there is going to be a dog fight between Miami and the Knicks for free agents to fill roles.
