I agree with most of this but if we're picking nits then I've seen you argue a ton in favor of Dwyane Wade's 2013-14 contribution despite his having been awful in the Finals. When I say that LeBron was the biggest piece of the puzzle in all four years, I mean he was the best player on the team all four years, and the biggest overall cog in that team's success all four years. LeBron's being bad in the Mavericks Finals does not erase his contribution for the other 95 games that year, just as Dwyane Wade's being awful in the second Spurs Finals does not erase his contributions and efficiency from the other 69 games he played. I'll take your word for it on him being the leader only two of the four years but it seemed to me publicly anyway that he was the leader in three of the four years. I think some day...probably sooner than later...the fans arguing that his jersey should not go up will realize that doing so belittles the accomplishments that the Miami Heat had over that magical four year stretch. They'll realize that in taking LeBron down (out of anger, mostly) they're actually taking down the 2010-14 Miami Heat. Look at Nabo's argument. He's basically saying what the Heat did under LeBron wasn't special. As we go forward, people aren't going to want to see it that way. They're going to want to see what the Heat did during that four year run as being historic, special, magical. Especially if the Heat do not recapture that as you speculate they will. And when they start coming to realize how special that microwave dynasty really was, they'll realize it's unavoidable that they have to celebrate the biggest piece of the puzzle during that microwave dynasty. That's probably when the healing will begin in earnest.
