    Nope, you have to be able to evaluate talent in order to put the pieces around your three best players in order to win it all. And that's not easy to do with the three guys on max contracts and a salary cap.

    A team consisting of LeBron James, Chris Bosch, and Dewayne Wade could win if the rest of the team consisted of AAU players.

    Then how'd they lose the Finals to Dallas in 2011?

    The result is the same but the process and the skills involved are much different. Drafting and developing talent requires a lot more patience and long term planning that simply throwing around enough money to lure the best players to your team. ANd let's be serious here. A team consisting of LeBron James, Chris Bosch, and Dewayne Wade could win if the rest of the team consisted of AAU players.

    what difference does it make whether you build thru the draft or build thru free agency? the ring is the same either way after you win the championship. And the Heat's roster is not entirely composed of "bought established talent"... Some talent evaluation was required to put the pieces around Lebron in order to put together a team able to win it all, not once but twice...

    My point was about evaluating talent to draft and develop a team as opposed to buying established talent.
