Winning Is Still all about Strategy

The chess pieces have fallen one by one to the right places. First Mike Miller the dead eye shooter from the Washington Wizards then last July 17 Zydrunas Ilgauskas signed with Miami Heat joining the already formidable team in Lebron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh.

Miami knows this would be the breakout season for them. It’s going to be party all day all night in Miami and everyone is invited even those bandwagon fans who swayed into their direction. The king has found his place and his high ranking officials and armies are going for an all out war against teams especially for the Los Angeles Lakers who are the NBA’s defending champs.

James wanted to have the pieces assembled long before he said yes in Miami. It was all in a big plan for the three to be together since their Olympic days in 2008. Free agency 2010 would be the biggest summer ever in the NBA and together they promise to shock the world and to send tremble to all NBA teams. They wanted to change the big three definition in Boston (Garnet, Pierce and Allen) with their own heavy artillery and athleticism. There were hearts broken and promises busted. James never intended to sign back in Cleveland. He knows he would never win championships even though he was given a championship roster from Mo Williams to Shaq and Antawn Jamison. He needed a much stronger team and Bosh and Wade can give him that. Joel Anthony re-signs with the Heat and Mike Miller needed little persuasion to join in and now Zydrunas is the new recruit. The 35 year old center who battled foot injuries throughout his career wanted to win and following Lebron all the way to South beach can never be wrong… Miami is all about winning. This is a team who is committed not just about winning games but making dynasties for years to come. Hearts broken and promises shattered… The people in Cleveland don’t deserve to wait for an hour on live television just to shut their hopes down… Toronto wanted Bosh as well as Chicago wanted Wade to sign to them. Commitment and winning that’s all that matters now and the direction they are heading looks brighter each day…

The right pieces to the puzzle on the right chess board, ready for battle… Miami is looking forward on every war they are in and the people will be glued to their television sets every game they play.

They look terrifying they look very intimidating but like in every Chess set nobody wins with ranks and power it all boils down to strategy and I hope Eric Spoelstra could muster the team to win especially when his playing with three kings. “Modern Chess is too much concerned with things like Pawn structure. Forget it, Checkmate ends the game”(Nigel Short) Winning is still all about strategy…
