The Miami Heat raised plenty of eyebrows when they gave Chris Bosh the max deal for him to remain in Miami. According to all reports, the bidding war was between the Miami Heat and the Houston Rockets for Bosh's services. The gave Bosh around $30 million more then the Rockets was offering him, which many people believe was too much for Bosh. Bosh is a great talent that can score from the perimeter and hit the long range three pointer on occasion. However, is he really worth all of the money the Heat shelled out to him.

When he was in Toronto at the beginning of his career, Bosh might have deserved the max deal to stay put in Canada. With Bosh gone, Toronto didn't have an attraction to brings fans into the building. When he went to Miami, he was surrounded big two massive stars in LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.

Michael Beasley began his career with the Miami Heat, as he was drafted with the second overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft behind Derrick Rose, who was drafted first overall to the Chicago Bulls. Many projected Beasley to have a great all-star career and some even questioned whether or not the Bulls should have taken Beasley instead of Rose. Those debates are over now as Rose was Rookie of the Year, and even an NBA MVP as well. Beasley on the other hand has never even made it to an all-star. Now the question is whether or not the Heat even have room to bring Beasley back as a bench player.

 

Beasley showed a lot of promise coming out of Kansas State after his freshmen campaign. Many NBA Draft experts viewed him as a can't miss star. Soon after he arrived in Miami, people realized that he just could not live up to the hype. After a couple of bad seasons, Beasley found himself dealt to the Minnesota Timberwolves in a move to make room for the now defunct Miami Heat "Big Three."

Does Greg Oden Have a Spot on the Heat Roster?

The Miami Heat brought in Greg Oden for the 2013-14 NBA Season. Oden was mainly brought in to give the Heat a big body that could bang with the likes of the Indiana Pacers. The problem with Oden was that he barely had any time on the court due to his reoccurring knee problems. He was drafted with the first overall pick in the 2007 NBA Draft by the Portland TrailBlazers

 

When Oden was drafted, he had already had a little bit of history with being injured back in college while playing for Ohio State. Still, a big man of Oden's caliber doesn't come around often. With Kevin Durant in the same draft class, Oden was still drafted number one. When healthy for Portland, Oden was a productive player, however the key words there are, "when healthy." Oden missed the majority of his games playing for Portland due to knee issues and he was named as a bust by many, fair or unfair. He later found himself as a free agent as Portland had even washed their hands of the injury-prone player.
