    It seems quite a lot of expert analysts are still putting the Heat second to the Lakers.

    I understand all of your points. And they are valid. And heck, I'm a Laker fan so I certainly hope the Lakers can beat them. I'm just saying that the Heat have put together a very interesting trio of players. The Heat might be beatable, but it will NOT be a cakewalk. Anyone who thinks so is delusional. 3 of the very best players in the world on one roster. I don't care who the other 9 players are, if you want a "W", you better be ready to play when the Heat come to town. That's just a fact.

    Miami spoke with D-Fish.

    This is a crazy offseason so far.

    Since it seems that no one else has gotten on it, I feel that I should post Dan Gilbert's "open letter to fans" regarding LeBron's exit. This disaster was the funniest thing I've seen come out of sports in a long time.

    Do you think it's because basketball is a team sport?

    I always thought a team is only as good as its weakest player.

    That's a great theory. Let's see if it works in reality:

    Lakers weakest player: D.J. Mbenga

    Surely there are teams in the league whose 12th man is "as good" or "better" than him. But, those teams didn't fare as well as the Lakers.

    It's a nice little saying and it does have some legitimacy to it in certain situations, but if we take it literally, it doesn't hold much water.

    It's not legitimate if the 12th man doesn't play. I think it applies to active contributors.

    So, yes I agree you need to be careful in taking it too literally.

    I still don't think it holds up. If we're talking about "active contributors", then we would probably say that Luke Walton is the Lakers weakest "active" link. IMO, he's not very good at all. He plays with a certain level of intelligence and knowledge of the game, but he constantly gets the ball stolen from him, his shots blocked. To put it nicely, every time he has the ball in his hands, I get scared for the Lakers.

    I see the Lakers play against other teams whose bench players (their weakest links), literally make Luke Walton look like he should still be playing college ball. I think Tony Allen of the Celtics blocked a couple of his Luke's shots, as an example. Luke never got revenge. He got outplayed by a large margin. Yet, Luke's team, still won the series.

    Do you contend that since the Lakers won the championship, that Luke Walton is the best of all the "weakest links" from all 30 teams?

    If Phil Jackson played ME for 10 minutes each game, I would EASILY be the weakest link. But, the Lakers would still be able to win some games. They would win less games with me playing 10 minutes, but they'd still win sometimes. I just don't see how it holds up in reality. A team is the sum of all of its parts. If your parts add up to more than my parts, then you win - even if your worst part is REALLY BAD.
