    Miami, really? That's interesting because they have so many ball dominant players on that team already that you would think Jose would be reduced to spot up shooter duties. Still, would love to see Jose get the recognition he deserves playing on an championship calibre team.

    I wish him all the best and I'm sure there will be nights we'll miss his leadership and steady play, but I too would make the Rudy Gay trade any day of the week.
    That's exactly why Miami would do it. They need the ball to move more in the halfcourt when they get sucked into such games. Anytime they get sucked into such a situation, they basically depend entirely on LeBron to create for the team. They have a lot of pieces they don't really need, like Mike Miller and Rashard Lewis, but Jose would be a big positive influence I think, especially if he's always on the court when LeBron's not. He could clearly run the p'n'r with Bosh, and it gives them big time insurance if Wade has injuries, which he usually does even to some minor degree, because he probably handles the ball the most after LeBron.
    *Though this is where he'd go to win, not necessarily the best choice contract-wise. But if he were to take a paycut for a ring, I don't know if there is a better fit. Maybe OKC so Westbrook can slide to the SG at times. Even if they keep Martin, Jose would still be a great fit off the bench.
    **Extra note: One of the biggest spanish speaking communities in Miami. Jose could feasibly make fairly big money in local deals and appearances. And Miami would certainly know that having a spanish-speaking player can't hurt their PR.

    I see what you're saying and maybe I'm just looking at the cons to your pros, but one way or another LBJ is going to have the ball in his hands towards the end of the game. Also Miami is a poor defensive team this year and Jose wouldn't help that cause. Mario Chalmers isn't half the PG Jose is, but he can play D and hit 3's. Certainly would be interesting to see Jose on that team though.

    About at the end of the game, it still gives them a much better dynamic if they want 2 ballhandlers who really look to pass with LBJ and Jose. Miami is good because of talent, but they have a flawed roster. In a lot of ways, it's still the same story as when LeBron was in CLE, but with better talent around him. He needs to carry a huge load to make up for all the shortcomings. On an almost nightly basis, he's asked to play every position on the floor, except SG really, because of what they lack. Chalmers is good to have if they're playing a top PG, but even then, you say LeBron gets the ball at the end, he also ends up guarding a D-Rose, or Paul, or Rondo, basically the best player on the other team if he's not a C....THen Chalmers is basically just a 3pt shooter who can't guard another position. I really think Jose gives them something they desperately lack, with the only other glaring need being a competent C.
