Could lost draft pick have made Miami Heat a dynasty?

07:17 PM ET 02.21 | The Miami Heat will win another NBA title in the very near future, possibly even this summer. Certainly, it is hard to argue with the roster construction of a team that has two sure-fire Hall of Famers in LeBron James and Dwayne Wade and another legitimate star in Chris Bosh. The unmatched production of James will cause people to forget about true deficiencies in not only the Heat's roster, but also the questionable way in which Miami's draft assets have been handled in recent years. This is far from an indictment of team president Pat Riley and the Miami front office; such a stance would be foolish. The Heat won the 2011-12 title and are poised to continue winning, so there is no place for me to condemn their front office. This is simply an entertaining, exploratory exercise, seeking to find out how much better Miami could be had they not sacrificed (and in some cases, wasted) valuable draft picks in previous years.
