Miami just gave a washed up Wade $16mil per year. They aren't gonna be legit contenders, IMO.
Cleveland is the wild card. If they land Love they'll be head & shoulders above the rest. But if they don't I like our chances against them. Kyrie vs Kemba is a wash. Then outside of LeBron/Jefferson Charlotte has a better roster.
Yeah, I see what you're saying. I still think wade could put up at least 18 ppg but it all really depends on how bad his health is next year. I think bosh is going to be a monster next year like maybe 22/10 type numbers. Then once you add deng, mcbob, cole, granger, they have a decent squad. I think Cleveland will be tough regardless even without love. Kyrie, waiters/wiggins, Lebron, Thompson/Bennett, Varejao with miller and possibly Allen draining threes off the bench seems very dangerous. Regardless, I still think it will be interesting to watch and would make a good series with either team.
