Possible Closing Lineups
Any combination of....
Wade, Chalmers, Lebron, Allen, Miller, Lewis, Bosh, Battier
The versatility in this squad is unbelievable. They will have trouble guarding the Lakers 2 bigs, but you can say the same thing the other way around. How is Dwight Howard going to guard Chris Bosh if you pull him out to the corner 3 pointer? How will Pau Gasol guard Battier all around the perimeter? It only leaves gaping holes for two of the best slashers in the world. Then you bring Howard/Gasol inside to take away those lanes and you have an arsenal of 3 point shooters with wide open shots. Steve Nash does not have the quickness to shift defensively to contest those shots. Kobe might but you're going to wear him out defensively by doing that. I don't think the Lakers are deep enough to keep up with the Heat, but if their squad can keep the score close until the end of the game, their starting 5 will create some serious damage to whoever they are playing.
Sorry for turning this into a Lakers vs. Heat discussion
