When LeBron James and Chris Bosh joined Dwyane Wade in Miami, the first thought that came to mind was just how lethal an offensive team this would be.

The Heat had three players who were all coming off of quality seasons where they all averaged at least 24 points per game. They were all offensive leaders in their former towns and also possess the ability to draw double-teams to allow teammates to get open.

The team has only just begun to show off its offensive zeal, as it appeared Wade, James and Bosh all began to show off a chemistry with each other they did not have in the six games prior.

In all six games, they allowed teammates to find easy opportunities. It’s the reason why James Jones is currently shooting like a hybrid of Reggie Miller and Mark Price.

If we know anything about the NBA though, it’s not the offense that wins championships, it’s the defense.
