MIAMI: GUARDS: DWYANE WADE will continue to take a smaller role during the regular season, as the Heat try desperately to keep him fresh for the playoffs. He's attacking the rim far less than he used to . . . MARIO CHALMERS will continue to start, playing off the ball more than any other point guard . . . RAY ALLEN will once again serve as sixth man, providing long-range shooting off the bench. He didn't start a single game last year, and at age 38, he'll rarely play full-time minutes as Miami looks toward the postseason . . . NORRIS COLE continues to inch up on Chalmers' starting role, improving nicely between his first and second seasons. But as long as Chalmers is the superior shooter, Cole will play behind him. FORWARDS: LEBRON JAMES is the best player in the league by a wide margin. There's no reason he shouldn't win his third straight MVP award . . . SHANE BATTIER is back as a glue guy, flopper and corner-three shooter. He'll play part-time minutes, often coming off the bench . . . UDONIS HASLEM will likely start, but he rarely stays on the floor for even half of a game. The Heat will continue to rotate big men alongside Chris Bosh . . . MICHAEL BEASLEY provides this team with an athlete who can put the ball in the basket coming off the bench. He must prove he can stay focused and out of trouble . . . RASHARD LEWIS may step into a slightly bigger role now that Mike Miller is gone. His troublesome knees won't allow him to play a lot of minutes, but he still shoots it well enough to help for a few minutes a night . . . JAMES JONES might have to do more than enjoy a courtside seat now that Miller is gone. CENTERS: CHRIS BOSH plays center in the Heat's small-ball lineup. He'll do his thing in the high post, and he's one of Miami's rotating rim protectors . . . CHRIS ANDERSEN did enough last postseason to earn a part-time role this year . . . The Heat hope GREG ODEN and Birdman will stagger their injuries. Oden should be part of a rotation alongside Bosh . . . JOEL ANTHONY is a half-step above team mascot.
PHILADELPHIA: GUARDS: Welcome to Tankadelphia. MICHAEL CARTER-WILLIAMS will be handed the reigns at the point, and has the size and savvy to create some offense. But a work-in-progress jumper and too many risky passes will lead to plenty of lost possessions . . . The Sixers would love to unload perennially disappointing ex-No. 2 pick EVAN TURNER. He's yet to develop a jump shot, and while he'll start for a laughably thin Philly team, he looks more and more like a second-unit player . . . JAMES ANDERSON could end up playing a lot of minutes off the bench, simply because the Sixers don't have enough NBA-caliber players . . . JASON RICHARDSON will miss at least half the season after major knee surgery. He may never contribute in the NBA again'TONY WROTEN could see the floor plenty as a high-upside player who must cut down on his turnovers and improve his jump shot. FORWARDS: THADDEUS YOUNG will likely step up as the No. 1 option, and he very well may be the only player on this team that would make a rotation of a playoff contender. We'll see what he can do with defenses focused on stopping him . . . LAVOY ALLEN will be leaned on for heavy minutes as one of their few proven players . . . ARNETT MOULTRIE might end up with a very big role this year, as the Sixers are especially lacking post players. He at least rebounds and gets in people's way defensively . . . Philly will try its hand with ROYCE WHITE, who has plenty of talent but just as much baggage. He and the Rockets couldn't see eye-to-eye with how to manage his anxiety issues . . . TIM OHLBRECHT might actually see the court on this team. CENTERS: SPENCER HAWES should start at center, especially early. His mid-range shooting makes him one of the few offensive options on this team . . . Coming off a torn ACL, NERLENS NOEL probably won't be ready until December. He should contribute as a rim protector and rebounder, but will be pushed around and doesn't have much on offense . . . KWAME BROWN is waiting for his contract to be bought out.

*Heat-76ers Preview* ====================


Miami (0-0) at Philadelphia (0-0), 7:00 p.m. EDT

Brett Brown watched from the San Antonio bench as an assistant coach while the Miami Heat closed out the Spurs in seven games to win their second straight NBA title in June.

Miami looked every bit as good in its season opener as Brown remembers, and he'll likely have an even tougher challenge trying to slow down the visiting Heat on Wednesday night as he begins his first head coaching gig with a Philadelphia 76ers team undergoing a major rebuild.

Brown spent six seasons as an assistant to Gregg Popovich before signing a four-year deal to coach Philadelphia this offseason. He likely won't be experiencing as many victories as in previous years with a roster devoid of any superstar talent.

After a disappointing 34-48 campaign, the 76ers revamped their leadership by parting ways with coach Doug Collins and firing general manager Tony DiLeo. President Rod Thorn left for a front-office job with the league.

New GM Sam Hinkie then traded leading scorer Jrue Holiday while Andrew Bynum, who was injured all of last season and never played a game for Philadelphia, signed with Cleveland.

Holiday was traded on draft night for No. 6 overall pick Nerlens Noel and a 2014 first-rounder, though there has been talk of Noel sitting out the entire season while he recovers from a torn left ACL. The 76ers then drafted point guard Michael Carter-Williams with the No. 11 pick.

"When you're looking to rebuild, and you're not on the side of the win column as much as you'd like to be, it's got to be done out of respect, out of work ethic, a competitiveness, a toughness," Brown said. "I feel like we're not skipping steps, we're not cheating the system, we're going about it like we're building something. That's why they hired me. That's what I intend on trying to do."

Thaddeus Young is the leading returning scorer after averaging 14.8 points last season, and Evan Turner also is back after scoring 13.3 points per game. Turner, in the last year of his rookie contract, doesn't plan on accepting being part of a losing team.

"No matter how you put it, losers sit there and say ... we're going to lose," Turner said. "I'm not a loser."

The Sixers, though, haven't been on the winning end of recent meetings with Miami, dropping nine straight and 19 of the last 20 matchups, including the postseason.

Brown has his own experience coming up short against the Heat.

"Everyone knows the last time I saw them (it) was a huge disappointment," Brown said. "The hangover from all that still exists a little bit.

"There's an excitement to start the year, and it just so happens to be against the best team in basketball. Any time you can get a true benchmark of where you want to be as an individual or as a team, then it's an honest reflection to aspire to get to where we want to go."

The Heat picked up right where they left off last season, beating Chicago 107-95 on Tuesday after receiving their championship rings in a pregame ceremony.

"You never know what to expect when you're trying to keep the main thing the main thing, and that's the game," coach Erik Spoelstra said. "But you can't deny the emotions and what a special moment it was for everybody in the organization because we know how difficult that was and how harrowing that was last season."

Seven players scored in double figures for Miami including LeBron James, who finished with 17 points, six rebounds and eight assists.

"It's a team game," James said. "That's what this team is put together for."

James had 27 points with Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade both sitting out of Miami's 106-87 win over Philadelphia in the most recent meeting April 6.
