Top 5 Things to Watch for Entering Miami Heat Training Camp

Dwyane Wade and Goran Dragic

1. How Will the Starting Lineup Mesh?

Miami Heat Starting Five

The most pressing question for the Heat is how will the starting five mesh?

When Pat Riley acquired Dragic via trade at the trade deadline last February, it was with the idea of Dragic, Wade, Deng, Bosh and Whiteside being the starting five.

Due to Bosh’s season-ending blood clots ailment, that idea never came to fruition—the aforementioned lineup did not take the court for a single minute last season.

Enter the 2015-16 season, and all five members look to be primed and healthy for an excellent season. Wade and Bosh are annual All-Stars and former NBA champions, while Deng is a former two-time All-Star himself. Dragic was named to the All-NBA Third Team following the conclusion of the 2013-14 season, while Whiteside is one of the top two-way players in the game.

It is not an overreaction to say that this starting five is one of the very best in the league on paper.

Training camp will be the very first time all five men take the court together as teammates and will provide Heat Nation with their first glimpse as to the potential this group has as a starting lineup.
