The Heat's advantage over the Lakers is their shooters, their depth, and the fact they have the current best player in the NBA. I'm not naive to believe this is how bad the Lakers will be playing all year, but right now there are other teams in the West that look more primed for the Finals than them.
Yeah I completely agree with you 100%.
The Heat is set up perfectly for LeBron, just like his old Cavs teams (except LeBron has 2 stars with him now, 1 of them being a superstar). LeBron with the ball in his hands + sharpshooters everywhere = game over usually. Plus the Heat's depth is pretty insanely good, especially if Lewis is half the player he once was. While LeBron is the best player in the game, he is also neutralized (probably too strong of a word) a bit with a healthy Dwight at the rim. I'm still not completely sold on LeBron's jumper and if the Lakers can turn him into a jumpshooter then that will take a lot of what he does away. Although, like you said... the Lakers don't look like they are an NBA Finals team at this juncture.
