Dwyane Wade disagrees and thinks that he needs a bigger role.
A few years ago I said I would trade Bosh or whoever else to get Dwight Howard here and people didn't get it. Without bigs, LeBron is gonna have to carry the weight every single year and he might not resign if that's the case.
I'll take any distraction for the Pacers and Hibbert, maybe this shows some mental weakness on his part, we need a good game from Birdman and Haslem, and for the love of GOD get Miller more time out there!! goes without saying Bosh needs to step it up, Wade is clearly not %100.
I've really noticed in this series that this Heat team is morphing into one of LeBron's old Cleveland teams. He's getting no help and ends up shouldering all of the load, and that for the most part won't get it done.

People have to show up tonight plain and simple. Bosh and Wade need at least 30 points no excuses. Step up or sit down. Miller needs to play. End of Discussion LETS GO
I dunno if the Heat are done, but I said on another board (maybe here too, I dunno) that there were 3 teams in the playoffs that would give the Heat issues; Indiana, Memphis, and San Antonio because those 3 teams will play physical and will hurt the Heat when they go small. While the Heat have faced some good big men this postseason, only the Pacers so far have big men that will make Miami's small lineup defend them in the paint. As good as a healthy Oklahoma City is who did Bosh/Battier/Haslem have to defend? Only Ibaka (whose a jump shooter) I think the effort Bosh and Battier have to spend on defense this postseason is really hurting them offensively.
The big thing the Heat have going for them tonight is that the Pacers are not a consistent jump shooting team. In game 5, the front court for the Pacers looked great in the first half, but the backcourt had 5 points combined. We've seen how streaky Stephenson is, and as cold the Heat shooters have been, they have enough guys that they can keep a game interesting. Pacers don't and if Stephenson's shot isn't falling, only George is a real threat.
A Spurs series might be more frustrating for Heat fans though if the team stays cold because the Spurs are not gonna miss as many shots as the Pacers have this series either.
