The Miami Heat have evolved over the offseason. With veteran additions in Gerald Green and Amar'e Stoudemire to bolster their bench, and young talent in Justise Winslow the Heat seem to be adding depth to their roster and appear on paper to be an extremely dangerous team. As a result of that, there is an overwhelming sense of positivity among Heat-Nation, and it seems as if the players are feeling it as well.
"I think we’re going to have a good team," "We’re still filling in some holes and making sure we’re solid in our bench area. We have everything: we have experience, we have size, we have the ability to go small. It’s all about making sure we’re playing as a team."
"I’m looking forward to it, but the game has changed quite a bit and my position almost doesn’t exist anymore," said Bosh, who then added, "At the four, bigger guys could guard me and I could go out and shoot jumpers. Now, every four does that. It’s not as unique as it used to be."
Bosh also commented on the DeAndre Jordan situation, as well as Tim Duncan, but what was really interesting were his thoughts on his recent illness, and how it effected him mentally saying:
"It was really humbling to me," "All I could think about when I had tubes in my chest was that I had been complaining for a certain amount of time about playing basketball. I felt so bad, and that was when I wasn’t sure I was going to get to play the game again."
Chris Bosh has obviously been through a lot since All-Star break, and it's reassuring to see his excitement about this new Heat team. The offseason isn't over so there is still a chance for Miami to fill the "holes' with other talent, but at this moment in time all buzz surrounding the Miami Heat is completely justified.
