Meh. Bird and Magic were utterly great and had solid teams to back their play, Jordan won with the stellar Pipen and some great secondary characters over the years and Shaq and Kobe were a dynamic duo with great help from the likes of Horry, Fischer etc and I can't help but find myself underwhelmed to see Lebron James having to win a championship with THIS MUCH HELP by his side. I get that Cleveland wasn't the land of a deep, well designed team, but this is kinda like a create a team on a video game and isn't something that'll help establish GREATNESS for Lebron or either three superstars here to be honest, it's kinda like, yeah, they're the shit, but they're not the best leader, the best clinch player back from adversity, not the best TEAM, just the best three players. Seriously, it'll be an upset if they don't win the title in the next several years and I fail to see the worth of a ring and a championship if you do it on such an apparently stacked basis. Allen, Pierce and KG weren't this awesome nor in the peak of their primes and still, there was a chance given that none were the single greatest players in the league, this just doesn't seem as poigniant as it would've been if Lebron had chosen a team that was HIS, mark my words, this Heat team is not his and that'll ultimately lessen his legacy.
Also, I don't like Wade and Lebron's styles in the same system, Bosh works with either and is an awesome addition, but both Wade and Lebron are driving forces and I'm cautious to see how they handle this. Personally, I'd have liked to see Lebron work hand in hand with somebody like a Chris Paul and have a nice duo over a trio, but WTF.
