NBA: Playoffs-Miami Heat at Toronto Raptors

The Heat seemed to struggle with its identity throughout the the 2015-16 season. Beginning the year as a defensive juggernaut with one of the slowest paces in the league, then closing out the season as more of an offensive threat after Bosh went down, it became a bit of a headache trying to assess what this team really was. Entering the offseason, the Heat must address this issue.

It all begins with head coach Erik Spoelstra and his coaching staff, but establishing an identity also revolves around what the roster will look like. What will Chris Bosh‘s role be? Will Wade and Whiteisde be back to help? What type of growth will we see out of Justise Winslow and Josh Richardson? A lack of identity, particularly on the offensive end, led to a plethora of problems toward the latter end of Miami’s playoff run against the Toronto Raptors. Look for the Heat to shore up this concern once the team gets its roster in place.
