Career 3-point percentage

One reason Dwyane Wade and Shaquille O'Neal will find the lane a bit more congested this year is that the Heat don't possess the 3-point threats they did a year ago.

As the chart shows, newly acquired players Antoine Walker, Gary Payton, Jason Williams and James Posey are inferior 3-point shooters to last year's crew of Damon Jones, Eddie Jones, Rasual Butler and Keyon Dooling. As a result, defenders will be more willing to collapse in the paint. That inability from the arc is why the Heat took a flyer on Bobcat castoff Jason Kapono. -- John Hollinger
