Tired Heat!!!!!!!!!! If any people should be tired it they are the MORONIC season ticket holders who must now find a way to maybe get 25 cents on the dollar when they try to pawn those things off.

Hell, you have a better chance of selling one of those ZERO lot line closets in Dade, Broward or Palm Beach Counties in the next year and a half than you do of having a meaningful heat experience.

Ira, you and Fat Boy still doing the show???

Still waiting for the turnaround that Jason Jackson at WQAM assured us was coming.

I almost can't watch the Heat anymore. They seem tired, sloppy, bored and outclassed by everyone they play these days. This team needs to be blown up and reconstituted from scratch. What a disappointment.

Unbeliever, to be honest there wont be a turnaround with this team until Riley has a turnaround in his thinking. I know Posey, Jones, and Kapono are gone. But if Riley attempted to show interest and resign these players then the state of the Heat would be in a much better situation. What Riley has done is allowed two of his best perimeter defenders and one of the best shooters in the NBA to leave. This squad has been playing with 0 percent of motivation.

Riley is trying to put Wade on the level of MJ and Magic and lead this squad by himself when he has not yet reached that level. He cant do evrything by himself, he needs help. him and Shaq (whose numbers would be better with better perimeter shooting and defense). Not to say he will never do it but this is only his 5th year. And even those players had great role players to help them succeed and riley allowed them to leave.

One thing I noticed is that during last season run without Wade. Guys such as Posey, Jones, and Walker stated that Wade should not came back so early because the injury would hinder him and the team was finding an identity. And then when the offseason occurred Riley pretty much shunned these players. I dont know if Riley doesnt want anyone to criticize Wade or what, but he has to do something with this team. Mo Williams said it best when he said evrything that looks good aint good( in respond to signing with the Bucks and not Heat).

Riley threw in a couple of new ingredients to try to make his crock pot stew better. He used cheaper ingredients in hopes in saving money.
However when he bent over to check on his calabash it blew up in his face! A disaster he mumbled under his wine soaked breath.
Letting go of Posey a guy that gave alot of effort last year, in return we got a smushed parker. There went the defense & hustle. Then getting rid of twan tippy toe walker was good, but Ricky Davis? Why would you want a guy back that didn't help the last time?
the heat is cap heavy with a 20 mil bum Shaq.
I still like Bibby and Artest, oh well here's to a #1 pick in the lottery!

All of you are fuckin fake fans. When they turn it around all of u will jump on the banwaggon. I'm a real die-hard fan. I stick with my team no matter what happens. I have watched all 31 games this season so far, and i know it hasn't been pretty, but no matter what i'm gonna continue to stick by my team. Thru the good and the bad. I hate fake fans.

Dear Real FANatic, Go join one of your buddies in a cave in Pakistan and fall for what some zealot is telling you. It's idiots like you that made it necessary to derive a descriptive word from "FANATIC" to describe someone who will believe anything about a sports ream.

what about the trade? d-wade is the truth no doubt, shaq is getting older don't wait for 20+ points everytime,the only guy he can trusty is d-wade , the supporting cast sorry did i say supporting cast? i see nobody. coach riley i put the blame because on you knew for the very first times that guys who surrounded wade and shaq suck, make some changes or quit the job, heat fans are dying to see what happen with the team.we know that we need a pg and sf who can make the basket consistently when shaq or d wade kick out when they double them..sorry ricky i thought u were that guy and i was wrong...let's go heat...surround sahq with good players and u won't be sorry
