After coming so close to getting that desired ring, the Heat will embark on round two of their pursuit of an elusive championship. When your team consists of players like LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh, there's not many off-season moves that can be seen as improving a team. But they did just that when they landed Shane Battier. With another accomplished defensive player on their squad, can anyone stop them now? Or will they be their worst enemy once again? —Jose Martinez
