I was just listening to Stan Van Gundy on The Dan LeBatard Show on 790 Radio here in Miami. He confirmed what I have been saying: The Miami Heat roster is the best in the history of the NBA.
Stan was comparing us to the Chicago Bulls in their glory days. He said this.
“Most people would still take Michael over Lebron, but Wade is much better than Pippen. Bosh is way ahead of Kukoc. Mike Miller is a better shooter than Paxson or BJ Armstrong. The Heat roster is the best that the NBA has ever seen.”
(Editors note: The above quote was slightly off, but the basics are correct.)
“If I look at what the Bulls did winning 72 games and I look at the Heat roster, I am going to tell you that the Heat roster is better than any roster that Michael Jordan played with with the Bulls. I don’t think that people predicting them breaking the win total and being in the 70s and the whole thing, I don’t think those are expectations that are out of line based on their roster. Most people would still take Jordan over Lebron. Dwyane Wade is certainly, in my opinion anyway, as good as he was, is better than Scottie Pippen. Chris Bosh is better than Toni Kukoc. Mike Miller is every bit as good a shooter as (John) Paxson or (Steve) Kerr or anybody they put there. Plus, he’s 6′8″. If you start going down the list, I don’t think there is any question that the roster the Heat have is as talented a roster if not more so as any roster there has ever been in the NBA.”
