So as you can see virtually every NBA champion in history has had some form of a dominating big man.  The NBA is a big deal.  To me by studying the past you can get an idea of the future.  You can look at the teams in the playoffs and determine which ones have a shot at winning it all.  No one has ever won a championship with as weak of a front court as Lebron does with the heat.  Big men win.  Period.  Lebron simply doesn't have the big men needed to win or the clutch players around him.  His only chance of winning is if he becomes his own big man and Wade plays the swing.  Then guys like miller need to hit their shots.  Think about it.  Even jordan had pippen and rodman.  Pippen was probably the 2nd best all around player and rodman was best on boards.  And he had guys like Kerr and Paxson hit their shots when needed.  And Kobe had lots of bigs such as Shack, Gasol and Bynum.  And he had guys who hit big shots when needed.  And Bird had lots of support also.  Think of his famous steal, and his teammate hit the shot.  Lebron has never had the guy who hit that shot.
