I've been saying all along that this Miami Experiment with Bosh, Wade and LeBron simply doesn't hold water with me because we've seen this before and it doesn't work as good as it should on paper due to the lack of chemistry these guys usually have. For one of the first times since the LBJ/Bosh move to Miami, we have a good example of why Miami won't win the title, and that is the fact that Brazil with Alex Garcia, Marcus Souza, Marcelo Huertas, and two NBA role players in Barbosa and Splitter managed to lead the majority of the game yesterday and take them to the final possession (against five all-stars like Rose, Durant, Billups, Odom, etc). It's called chemistry folks. How many times have we seen this Miami experiment before with similar US teams? 2002 - US Team - beat three times by Argentina, Spain and Yugoslavia with all of 2 max NBA starters on their rosters beat the loaded US team with Pierce, Reggie Miller, Baron Davis, Shawn Marion, Jermaine O'Neal, etc. 2004 - US Olympic team - Beat by Puerto Rico, Lithuania and Argentina, having starters like TIm Duncan, Dwane Wade, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Allen Iverson and Amare. 2006 - US Team - knocked out by Greece with no stars of note that I can remember, but that team had Kobe, Melo, Wade, and LeBron. So we have a number of examples where fielding a roster of all-star caliber players don't beat out the chemistry of a team that plays team basketball. Not saying the US team will lose half their games or that Miami won't make the playoffs. But don't start giving the US team the gold and don't start thinking Miami is a favorite to get to the finals when all they've got are three star players on the same roster, no history and chemistry to actually translate three great players into wins on the W/L record.
