Imagine being a long-time Miami Heat fan? Three years ago, when the Celtics landed Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen in one off-season I thought I died and went to heaven. Neither of those two players was ever really in the discussion of best players in the NBA. KG would probably get a few votes in his prime, but nothing overwhelming.
Heat fans have seen their team transfer from a first round playoff loser to a roster that boasts two of the best four players in the NBA. Right now I’m going to say Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Dwyane Wade are the four best in no particular order. Sure, you can dissect that statement from a number of different angles, but throw Chris Bosh — arguably the best power forward in the game — into the mix and fans in South Beach have more to celebrate over than any fan base has ever had in an NBA off-season. They’ve already begun doing just that while Cavs fans are off burning their LeBron jerseys. Check out this video of fans in South Beach celebrating LeBron James decision to join the Miami Heat:
