The Miami Heat has been undergoing major reconstruction ever since the faithful day in which LeBron James made his intentions known that he will not be returning and is heading back to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Miami Heat Head Coach Erik Spoelstra admitted that the team went into panic with not knowing what to do since their superstar left. However, the team managed to pull themselves together and bring in some key free agents and re-sign some key players to still make them a formidable team in the Eastern Conference and potentially still come out the East to go to the NBA Finals for a fifth straight year.
The Heat were able to re-sign Chris Bosh to a max deal and also bring back Dwyane Wade, Chris "Birdman" Andersen, Udonis Haslem and Mario Chalmers back into the fold and keep most of them core stars in tact. The team was also able to sign free agents Josh McRoberts, Danny Granger and Luol Deng. This will no doubt add depth to their bench with Granger and McRoberts, and Deng cannot replace James, but he is an awesome substitute.
The Heat may not be as dominant as they used to be with LeBron James in the picture, but they will give any team a run for their money. Not to mention, they are in the Eastern Conference. It does not have nearly the amount of depth that the Western Conference does, which benefits them quite a bit. Only four to five teams in the East are considered strong contenders and the Miami Heat are one of those teams.
