im going with 45 out of 48, being a bigger deal..
So lebron has one ring out of 10attempts,
and we are ready to proclaim him the next messiah?
people forget that he lost to an "ok" mavs last year..
and with cleveland, he lost to an "ok" opponent..
not just lost, but swept..
One out of 10 is not the stuff of legends..
it was virtually improbable that lebron would get a ring at some point..
lets wait till he gets 5 rings before calling him the next virgin mary..
Not to mention his road to the finals was cake..
you like sucky sucky indiana?
or a boston team, with a vanishing ray allen?
It saddens me..
the only way teams can compete vs miami,
is to clumpp superstars together, just like the nutsackers heat team..
Chris paul could have been our "luke skywalker", rescuing us from this evil empire..
now the universe is In serious jeapordy,
cause of david stern..
In my eyes, there must be an 85% asterisk here..
Fasten your seatbelts folks..
heat have a 5 year period of potential championships..
Help me chris obi one kanobe paul..
you are our only hope..
get to the lakers..
cause howard wont

Well I'm guess I'm going to argue your assumption that the Heat are going to more or less win 5 total championships in the future. That's 4 more championships that the Heat are going to need to win.
It's not a wild idea, but I say its really, really unlikely that the Heat capture 4 more. Here's why:
1. OKC Thunder. Easy as that. These guys are young, talented, and scary as hell. Even if they don't retain either Ibaka or Harden, I think with Kevin Durant and Westbrook growing up a rapid pace, they can challenge the Heat for a title several times.
2. D-Wade. Already we can see that D-Wade's dexterous and physical-get to the free throw line- style of play is effecting his health. As much as I love Wade, he's the oldest of the Big Three and he's not getting any younger. I say injuries effect Wade over the course of the next 7 years, diminishing his value and play.
3. The impending departure of D-12. It's a superstar league and D-12 is going to go make his own duo/trio of superstars somewhere. He might get traded or he might just leave. Who knows, but Dwight matched up with any other legit star is going to be scary.

i thought it was classic stuff, with the stuart scott interview..
so wade, whats it like being number 2? Bosh, you are the forgotten man?
its rare to see 3 superstars on one team..
to try and classify them, in front of their home crowd is public humiliation..
I say there is a great chance of bosh and lebron,
a dynasty is born..
we all knew it was a matter of time..

I agree to the fact that the Heat being able to win 4 more is not completely out of the equation. However, I think that the Heat are more likely to end up with 3 or less.
Since you did not mention any new points, I'll go ahead and point some new ones out:
1. Deron Williams just released news yesterday that he will be signing either with the Nets or the Mavs. That's big, big time news considering that if he goes to the Mavs, he's going to be playing with Dirk. If he stays with the Nets, the only real reason he would do that is because Deron Williams believes that the Nets can haul in Dwight in the future. So in the end, Deron Williams is going to get matched up with a superstar.
2. Dont forget about the Bulls. The East was basically handed to the Heat this year. The Heat just decided to make things complicated with Indiana and Boston but come on, the only real challenge for the Heat from the beginning were the Bulls. If D-Rose makes it back healthy and Bulls somehow pick up a decent SG in the future, watch out Miami.

You argument that the heat have legit competition is legit..
i still think the east is weak and the west is strong..
but miami only has to play one west team..
lakers desperately need another superstar..

Well.... not much left to say.
Can't really counter argue the things you have been mentioning but I understand why you think the East is weak.
But besides all of the facts, lefts get it through out heads- winning 5 championships is God damn hard. It takes luck, skills, dedication, and just in general everything needs to go right for such a long period of time. One mistake here, another there, and you might see that 4 championship expectation dwindle down to 2 or 3.
