Miami Heat's Justise Winslow, Josh Richardson fail Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh Challenge; Goran Dragic, Gerald Green Expect Better Rookies

The Miami Heat roster has been struggling for quite some time due to the departure of LeBron James. As King James made the decision to leave the Miami Heat in an effort to bring pride and joy to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh attempted to make up for the lost part of the Big Three. However, it appears that their efforts are falling short as the Miami Heat barely made a splash in the NBA season last year. This time around, however, the NBA team appears to be filling in the spots with young and fresh basketball stars to presumably build a winning squad from the ground up. The entrance of rookies Justise Winslow and Josh Richardson in the Miami Heat locker could be assumed to indicate the NBA team's move to provide solid support to veteran Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.

The Miami Heat roster has been struggling for quite some time due to the departure of LeBron James. As King James made the decision to leave the Miami Heat in an effort to bring pride and joy to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh attempted to make up for the lost part of the Big Three.

However, it appears that their efforts are falling short as the Miami Heat barely made a splash in the NBA season last year. This time around, however, the NBA team appears to be filling in the spots with young and fresh basketball stars to presumably build a winning squad from the ground up. The entrance of rookies Justise Winslow and Josh Richardson in the Miami Heat locker could be assumed to indicate the NBA team's move to provide solid support to veteran Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.

"He's good," shared Chris Bosh, referring to Miami Heat rookie Justise Winslow, according to CBS Local. The NBA veteran, however, noted that the skills of Justise Winslow are outstanding for a rookie. While this comment was said in a teasing manner, it could be presumed that Justise Winslow still has a long way to go before he can actually play with the big guys in the league - that is, the Miami Heat might need more than just fresh blood to boost the chances of the team to win the championship this season.

Chris Bosh further shared, "He's good. I mean he's big, he's physical, I don't really think he's really 19. I gotta see his birth certificate on that one. He's big and physical, strong and fast. He's just that classic Miami Heat player that Pat Riley loves - long arms, his athleticism, he's developing his jump shot. But the thing I like about him most is he's got a great basketball I.Q. to be so young. He's in the right spots. You don't have to tell him much."

As for Josh Richardson, the NBA rookie had to contend with the first time jitters that racked him during the NBA preseason match of the Miami Heat against the Charlotte Hornets at the American Airlines Arena on Sunday. Although Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade remain optimistic in the potential room for improvement of Josh Richardson and Justise Winslow, the 90 - 77 defeat the Miami Heat suffered in the hands of the Charlotte Hornets might not be a positive sign in relation to achieving this goal. As the regular NBA season draws nearer, Miami Heat main stars Gerald Green, Goran Dragic, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh will need all the support they could get to achieve the goal of dethroning the Golden State Warriors.
