Lots of question marks around Miami’s reload in the Eastern conference this year. Their unraveled depth and #HeatCulture rose them through the gauntlets of the Eastern Conference bubble to rise from the 5th seed to Eastern Conference Champs. Their core is fired up, focused, and gaining continuity. I see seven solid rotation players. This year, with the losses of Goran “Dragon” Dragic (16/3/5 in 28 minutes), Jae Crowder (10/6/2.8 in 29 minutes), and Derrick “Air Plane Mode” Jones Jr. (8/4/1 in 23 minutes) it remains to be seen how Riley and Spoelstra work their magic to fill out this roster.
Those three rotation players have left with a total of 34 points per game. How will end-of-bench role players step up with their new opportunities? Why was Udonis Haslem’s contract extended? Does Iguodala have anything left in the tank to earn the two-year, $20 million extension he got? So many questions surround the depth and bench this year. With only 10 guaranteed players under contract, how will management round out this roster?Please, blog, may I have some more?
