Is Miami top 4 in East without LeBron?

I wanted to know what you guys think because lately I've been hearing people say that the Heat are mediocre without him which I disagree.

Knicks, Nets, Bulls, maybe Pacers would all be better than them. But not by much.

They would make the playoffs but they wouldn't make the finals or win a championship. Top 4 means you can win a championship.

Top 5 I'd say, they'd still have Wade and Bosh to carry the team. Wade isn't what he was, but pushed back into the role of the main guy, I think he'd do just fine for them.

What situations are you talking about? Something where LeBron is injured for the season? Probably 4th if not 5th. Some situation where they have to replace him? Probably 1st/2nd.

agree...without him with the same roster they are barely 4th...if they replace him with borderline allstar they are still one of the top teams in the east...

It's the Leastern Conf so top 5 ... don't forget Bosh can provide a lot more offensively/ is versatile ...whereas his role is reduced as a floor spacer with Wade and Bron .

Wade would still have big games here and there but he's basically done as an elite player .

The exact same roster minus Bron is a 2nd exit

Mediocre means they are .500 ball club or close to it. Milwaukee is the epitome of mediocre. With that said, they are better than that without Lebron...if Wade is healthy. Unhealthy, they are mediocre.

Brooklyn Nets
Indiana Pacers
Chicago Bulls
New York Knicks

Those are teams better than Miami in that scenario.
