The Miami Heat appear to be in panic mode due to the recent events involving LeBron James, but this summer may have been a blessing in disguise for Pat Riley and company. James was never going to stay there for his entire career anyway, and now the Heat will have a chance to see if Chris Bosh is a piece that they can build around. Here are five ways the Heat could be better next season.

Dwyane Wade's role in the offense has been greatly diminished in the past couple years. The shooting guard should cherish the opportunity to prove himself yet again after LeBron's decision to take his talents to Akron.

LeBron James opened up a lot of shots for Bosh, but most of the open looks were from three-point range. Now that the Heat no longer have the four-time MVP, there will be plenty of room for their power forward to operate in the post. The most interesting aspect of the situation is that James and Bosh could end up guarding each other in a playoff series next year.

This is just speculation, but Pat Riley has to be angry at LeBron's camp right now. And if things do not go well at the start of next season for head coach Erik Spoelstra, then we might see Riley make a return to the bench.

The Heat are trying out Luol Deng next year at small forward, but he may not be the solution for them over the long haul. In the event that they find another free agent superstar by 2016, then they could be thankful James left when he did.

Erik Spoelstra's good luck seems to have run out, and we will now get to see the head coach's attempt at turning Bosh into a superstar. If things go poorly for Spo to start the year, then Riley might start itching for the clipboard to exact his revenge.
