    Yep.......the obvious difference is the alien Battier carries the luggage for Lebron......the best player in the NBA right now. Carolina greats always had others carrying their luggage. No true difference makers coming out of Durham........except maybe one kid who barely played their!! That still cracks me up!!

    Irving reminds me a lot of Allen Iverson. A shoot first point guard who will score a lot of points but never be able to lead a team to the championship.

    What's so funny about the new age NBA player is that there are no true champions! Look at Miami.......the players had to conspire to build a team just to win it all. Classic example of a paper champion.

    Jordan, Magic, Bird. they had teams built around their greatness! I'm not impressed at all with Miami and their championships. Their winning in a all time extremely weak NBA!

    Very similar to the Yankees. They cannot evaluate talent in order to draft players so they go out and buy them.

    Not true. You have to be able to evaluate talent to make good decisions about which free agents you sign. The Heat have Pat Riley who is the master at evaluating talent from the same free agent pool the rest of the NBA has access to...

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

    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...

    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.
