With LeBron James leaving the Miami Heat for the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Heat are going to have to rely on Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade much more than they have in the previous couple of seasons. Bosh received a new five-year, $118 million contract and seems ready to remind people he used to be a go-to scorer in this league. As for Wade, he's apparently taking his diminished reputation and increasing responsibility quite seriously. Ethan Skolnick of Bleacher Report has quotes from Wade about how his diet has been vegetable heavy and "one of the hardest things" Wade has ever done. Wade is allegedly lighter right now than he was heading into the 2013 training camp. He's also using the doubt about him handling a bigger load on offense as an energizer for his workouts.
