Five Reasons the Miami Heat Won't Suck to Watch Next Season

A few short days ago, the future didn't look so great for Miami Heat fans. LeBron James decided he was homesick, Chris Bosh was close to joining the Houston Rockets, and the Bulls were calling Dwyane Wade to check if he wanted a get-out-of-Miami-jail-free card. Then Pat Riley got to work, quickly adding free agents and bringing back many key pieces of last year's finals team.

Today the Heat looks to be a team ready to be right back toward the top of the East. Here are a few reasons Miami Heat fans should be excited about what's coming this October.

1. The regular season matters again.
Gone are the days of wondering if your team is gonna give a shit that night. Nope, next season you can be sure every night will be a fight. This isn't to say it wasn't nice to know the Heat players could pretty much throw their jerseys on the court from October until April last year and still end up with 50 or more wins. Nah, that was supersweet, but it didn't make for the best entertainment at times. Every night the other team was an underdog, and every night the Heat would inevitably play grab-ass. This strategy particularly bit the Heat in the butt last season, because the team dropped numerous games to teams that had no business beating Miami, almost entirely because our guys gave so few shits for long stretches of games.

2. More Boshy Bear! That never sucks.
Chris Bosh unchained! At times in the past four seasons, it was frustrating to watch Bosh disappear for entire quarters because he just wasn't involved in the Heat's offense. Bosh has said numerous times that the Heat rarely call any plays for him, yet people still judge him by comparing his numbers to his Toronto days when he was the only scoring option. It's not apples to apples. Next season Bosh will be the first option again, and it will be fun to see him take on the challenge of being asked to do so much more. It looks like he'll be in Miami for a long time, and next year we get more Chris Bosh in our lives. That's awesome.

3. Out with the old, in with the new.
The biggest issue that led to last season's epic collapse in the NBA Finals was the Miami Heat got old fast. Next season promises to be a better mixture of new talent (namely Shabazz Napier and James Ennis) mixed with fewer over-the-hill role-players than in years past. We will all miss Shane Battier and Ray Allen, but it will be fun to see younger, unproven guys show us what they've got. That's something it feels like the Heat hasn't had in years. The guys that led this franchise to the NBA Finals the past four years will all go down in history, but at some point you knew someone else would have to carry the torch. Next year we get to see if we have any diamonds in the rough.

I will keep attending the Miami Heat games even with LeBron gone. The tickets are always fairly easy to obtain. http://ow.ly/zg5MF

We were a great team before Lebron. We'll be a great, or better, team without him.

Forgot to mention that the bandwagoners have vanished and that real Heat fans no longer have to put up with these idiots.

If people haven't learned yet one man doesn't win championships unless your 2006 wade and your dropping 40 points per game :D , LeBron had to join 2 all stars for him to finally win and now our team is much more balanced then ever before. I see a good comparison between this new roster and the 06 finals roster. James Ennis is the future face of the heat yall just don't know it yet

- Divided Lebron's money? How would we sign other players then? Wade could've made more money, but took less for cap space purposes. 

- Lebron didn't fall apart in the finals, the rest of the team did. Leave the guy alone. He's a real person. I saw him pick his nose once.

- If you're a Heat fan for players and not the team, you suck.

And we don't get to watch Lebron pound the ball at the top of the circle for 20 sec. in half court offence.

Yep, 5 good points there. But I would've thought they would've divided LBJ's money between Bosh & Wade. I think both play better, but they will have to pick up James workload. If Wade plays better, shame on him for getting lazy making over $20 million a season.

LeBron did what he was paid to do people,quit the bullshit just because he is going to play closer to his home. I say good luck to him and good luck to the current and Future Miami Heat.

I dont ever want to see Carl Snyder commenting on any Heat related posts on this page next season when we blow it out the water and PROVE that this team was more than just LBJ. Keep an eye out for him lol

LeBron may have taken the heat to the playoffs but once he got there he couldn't keep them together enough to win

All horrible reasons.  Miami will be a decent 5/6 seed, nothing more.  If Wade plays a 1/3 of a season, welcome to the lottery.  Regardless, Heat fans are still a joke and the laughingstock of the nation.

Carl Snyder

I would have to respectfully disagree. They would have never even made the playoffs without James. And during the playoffs, he carried the team.

No denying, we lost the player of the century. In the 2 years before Lebron, Heat lost in the first round of the playoffs.

Can't wait to see what Norris Cole does this season...he's going to be fun to watch as he grows as a player!
