3. Miami Heat
The Lakers are 0-2 against the Miami Heat, and any time you face the trio of LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosh that could spell some trouble for the Lakers. The ability of Wade and LeBron taking over during stretches of the game can be alarming, but they still lack the size and bench play in comparison to the Lakers. Given all the Heat’s problems this year and lack of depth puts Miami at the number three spot because the Lakers are still a deeper and more cohesive unit. In a seven game series it is hard to imagine the Heat winning four against the Lake Show.
