The Miami Heat are going to be in for a very interesting season in 2014-15, and needless to say their entire team is going to look different. LeBron James made the decision to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers this offseason, and that will make the Heat a completely new team with a much different offensive scheme.

They re-signed both Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade, and brought in Luol Deng to replace James, which is about as good as they could have gotten.

Needless to say, the Heat are going to be a very intriguing team to keep an eye on this year. They are going to need Bosh to step up and become the same type of scorer that he was with the Toronto Raptors a few years back.

Don’t be surprised to see him come out and shoulder that load, and help keep the Heat towards the top of the Eastern Conference.

Wade is going to have to step up and be a leader once again, and that will be the biggest make or break part of the season. His knees have been slowly getting worse each season, but he will have to put them to the test now that James is no longer in town.

He won’t be able to sit out as many games as he did last season and still have his team be successful, which is going to be a very difficult decision for head coach Erik Spoelstra to make.

What five bold predictions can be made about the 2014-15 Heat?
