Wade, LeBron, Bosh Meet with Media

”This team is not built for us to go below the radar,” coach Erik Spoelstra said. ”That’s a good thing. The expectations are there. We won’t run away from it.”

Some expect the Heat to win every game, thanks to an unprecedented free agent haul that united Wade, James and Bosh. All were among the top five picks in the 2003 draft, and all are All-Stars, but none has been in a situation like this.

”There are so many things being different, even this media day,” Bosh said. ”Everything is different from what we all have either expected or experienced.”

Do the Heat have a superteam? We’ll see. Charley Rosen says their success would be bad for the NBA.

The question about who will take the last shot won’t be answered until the season starts Oct. 26 at Boston. As for the question of who was going to take the first question: It was Wade sitting in the middle, flanked by the two Heat newcomers, he served as a moderator of sorts. At one juncture, reporters on opposite sides of the room tried to ask questions at the same time, and Wade interrupted.

”There are two people talking,” he said, before nodding toward James. ”I know he’s confused, because I’m confused, and Chris is, too.”

Wade restored order and kept his teammates involved throughout, such as when he defended the much-maligned celebration at the Heat arena after all three signed in July.

”We enjoyed it,” Wade said. ”And 13,000 fans in the arena enjoyed it. We did it for Miami. We didn’t do it for anyone outside of that. I think it was fine.”

He turned to James, then Bosh.”Did y’all like it?”They nodded.”Good times,” Wade said. Bosh listened closely when his teammates talked and smiled easily, while James mostly stared ahead with a solemn expression, looking like he was ready to go on a 45-point binge at any minute. The reigning two-time NBA MVP tapped his fingers on the table, scratched his collarbone, stroked his mustache and laughed only once – when Wade teased him about leaving Bosh off his list of good ball-handlers.
