article imageMagic Johnson says this is the last season for Miami's Big Three

By Eric Morales     Jun 13, 2013 in Sports
With Game 4 of the NBA Finals approaching Magic Johnson says regardless of who wins the championship the Miami Heat have to make big changes in the off season.
The Miami Heat will face off against the Spurs in Game 4 of the NBA Finals tonight from the AT&T Center in San Antonio on ABC. It will be up to the Heat's big three, forward Lebron James, point guard Dwayne Wade and center Chris Bosh to hold back the San Antonio Spurs after a crushing 113 to 77 Game 3 win by San Antonio on Tuesday.
However NBA legend Magic Johnson has already called the end of the Miami Heat as currently constructed.
"Things have to change with this [Heat] team. Everyone has caught up to them" Magic Johnson said.
The 2012-13 season for Miami has been phenomenal to say the least. It was the third season with the "Big Three" of Wade, James and Bosh on the heels of their NBA championship last year. Miami became the first team since the Chicago Bulls in 1998 to Three-peat as Eastern Conference Champions.
All this and the fact that the Miami Heat faced stiff competition from both the injury afflicted Chicago Bulls and the young Indiana Pacers has Magic Johnson saying the Miami Heat needs to restructure itself during the off season.
"Magic says Wade "is what he is now" and Bosh is not a dominant "force." But obviously, only Pacers and Spurs have caused Heat problems" Barry Jackson veteran reporter with the Miami Herald said.
Tonight's game will be critical for Miami which is seeking to keep it's head above water with the Spurs leading the NBA Final 2-1. Erik Spoelstra, head coach of the Miami Heat is so desperate for a win tonight he is considering starting 33-year-old Mike Miller in place of Dwayne Wade according to ESPN.
Miller is 10 of 11 on shooting 3-pointers in the NBA Finals so far and is shooting 50 percent in the post season. The change in line ups could also see Lebron James start Game 4 guarding the San Antonio Spurs 6'11'' center Tim Duncan.
