Heading into their series against the Indiana Pacers, nobody thought that the Miami Heat would be struggling as much as they are. Now that the series is tied at three games apiece, the Heat find themselves on the brink of elimination if they do not get their act together fast.
LeBron James certainly has not been the problem for the Miami Heat. He has been the one player who has consistently played like somebody who is dying for a ring. Unfortunately, LeBron has not had help from his team's other two stars, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.

Instead of acknowledging his horrible play, Wade believes that LeBron and company just need to do a better job of putting himself and Bosh in better positions to succeed.
"We've got to do a good job of making sure me and Chris have our opportunities to succeed throughout the game," Wade said. "That's something we're going to have to look at as a team."
"We've got guys individually who want to play better. But we've got to try to help each other out in this locker room and not leave it up to the individual to self-will it."
Meanwhile, LeBron James is not hiding the fact that his teammates are struggling and are likely the reason why the Miami Heat may be eliminated on Monday night in game seven against the Indiana Pacers.
"I mean, we can state the obvious; they're both struggling," James said of Wade and Bosh. "When you're struggling, the best thing to get is a layup or a dunk. [Wade] missed a couple of them ... Chris is struggling with his shot and him hurting his ankle didn't help."
Obviously there is a little trouble in the Miami Heat locker room right now. LeBron should be defending his teammates, not admitting that they are struggling. At the same time, Dwyane Wade should be admitting that he needs to play better instead of saying he needs to touch the basketball more.
If the Heat defeat the Pacers in game seven, all of this will be forgotten and they will once again become one big happy family. If Miami loses, they could be in for a very long offseason.
