Speaking of James, he was asked today if he MUST win the NBA finals MVP award to validate his decision to join the Heat. Here’s his full response:

“That’s ridiculous,” James said. “I’m here to win. That’s all it’s about. Individual accolades take care of itself. I’ve got two MVP trophies sitting in my house back in Ohio and I haven’t won anything. It doesn’t matter to me. It’s all about a team game and this is the ultimate team prize right here, just trying to win the NBA championship. So I don’t really care. I could trade in my last two MVP trophies to have a ring. I don’t care about individual accolades to solidify myself in the NBA or whatever they’re talking about. It’s ridiculous.”

So there.

Scheme-wise, don’t look for the Heat to change much. The Mavs will clearly play a lot more zone if Barea is getting a ton of minutes.
