After finals failure, where do Heat go from here?

MIAMI (AP) - LeBron James swiped at critics after the final Miami Heat game of the season, saying the quality of their lives will not improve because he failed to win a championship.

Neither will his.

His enormous fame and fortune not withstanding, the perception of James is shaped mostly by what he does in his basketball uniform - and what he says out of it. For the eighth straight year, he failed to reach the NBA mountaintop, this time after he and the Heat lost to the Dallas Mavericks.

So now what? James says he'll get better. Dwyane Wade has the same sentiments. And whenever next season begins, be it October or delayed by a lockout, James and the Heat will face the same situation they did in the season's final game: Win or bust.
