Bowles is a master strategist, although he downplays how much that factors into the team’s success. “I’m one of the first guys to say you’ve got to have players to win games,” he said. “If you don’t have the players, you’ve got no shot. The Heat without LeBron, Wade and Bosch, if they ran a scheme, they wouldn’t win anything.” (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin)
