Kareem on Miami Heat: ‘They’re still trying to find their identity’

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the NBA’s all-time leading scorer, likes what he sees from the Lakers. He’s not so sure, though, about those Las Vegas oddsmakers. Ever since the Miami Heat became the favorite to win the NBA championship next June, Abdul-Jabbar has been shaking his head. "I think it’s crazy," he said Friday. "Miami doesn’t have a team yet. They’re still trying to find their identity. They’ve got a long way to go before they establish themselves. "
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: The Skyhook speaks The Truth.

Yes, the Miami Heat has talent. Yes, the Miami Heat has potential. However, they haven`t had enough time to gel.

This is a process all contenders go through. It’s a process the Boston Celtics and Orlando Magic have gone through.

Consider Chris Bosh’s recent comments. The third of The Three Kings admitted feeling lost in his new surroundings.

Once the Heat finds their chemistry, they’ll contend. After all, no team in the Eastern Conference can match their athleticism and star power.

Here’s the real question: how long does it take for CB4, The King, and Wade to develop chemistry with each other and teammates?
