Yes, I believe it is, this is a transition period for the NBA as it is from the old stars fading to the new stars starting to take over. Add to that all the injuries to key players in past seasons like Rose, Rondo, Kobe, and lesser injuries that still hurt teams like David Lee, Danny Granger, Gallinari, hobbled guys like Parker and Ginobili, Chandler, and on and on and on. The Heat picked the most perfect time ever to join up, they have zero opposition to the title the way I see it. Their titles will count the same as anyone else's in history, but I will remember how weak their competition was. Last season it was weak as hell, this season it will be even weaker with the exception of maybe playing the Knicks if they can stay healthy. Other than that the Thunder are worse, the Spurs are worse, the Nuggets have no real stars, whoever comes out of the West is gonna get beat down by the great one the Kang.
Meanwhile Shaq and Kobe had to go through some of the best teams full of vets I've ever seen, MJ had to go through Magic, Drexler, Barkley, Payton, Malone and Stockton (in the Finals, not even counting all those physical East teams along the way), and then all those 80's teams were hall of fame teams vs hall of fame teams. Shame the league is watered down or in transition right now, but very fortunate for LeBron. If the Heat DON'T win it all this season on the other hand, with as deep a team they have plus LeBron, Wade and Bosh as their main guys, I will consider it an epic fail.
