The Heat isn't the worst team in the NBA. Yet. Tuesday certainly was another step in that direction, with a 101-91 loss to the Timberwolves at Target Center.

Is anyone around going to say the Heat is a team?
The best scenario as I can see it is : shaq stays in LA as long as possible; Wade takes a doctors attention (out for several games); Riley plays the rest of sh.....t to verify who is going to stay for next year or been traded and team goes down to first draft pick.....
Congrats to Knicks.... Good job,Isiah.

Its not too late. There's still time to turn it around, but it's pretty hard when we cant get a damn rebound. We may be down, but we aren't out. Just yet....

That was the worst game i watch this year, Something has to be done they are a mess . Thats Not Miami Heat Basketball !!! Riley has all the blame because he put this team together and sends them out on the floor. Either he gets rid of the dead wood or he steps Down. Something Has To Be Done !!!

My question is, when does Riley come up with some reason to quit again and make some other sucker ride out the season? And then come back if that coach turns it around.

Riley can't make chicken salad out of chicken shitt.
He made deals with a thin wallet and it backfired in his face.
They should've got rid of the schleps right after the championship when thier value was high,including ShaQ.
Instead he made it even worse,especially giving away Posey. The only guy that gave him effort besides Hasbum. As i said Wade was going to end up in a wheel chair and he did. With his injury and playing him he may never be the same player.
Hence,they gambled the future away and never got Wade any help and kept that useless load call Shaq. Who was loosing his skills when he left LA but played just good enough in the playoffs. Riley should have seen it coming. He's like the bum standing in the middle of the railroad track refusing to acknowledge the train is coming and tries everything to stop it or ignore it and it ends up killing him.

What no one has talked about is how the HEAT leads the NBA with 5 undrafted players. That plays a major role in the team's horrible season.
Our 5 undrafted players, who are now forced to play major minutes, can't even stand up to lowly Minnesota, who is filled with young talent--bright future.

I like Riley, but he did Gundy wrong. Carma is a mother of a thing.

Every sportscaster on NBA coast to coast said it last night RIley is to blame for this team going down hill. He shipped off the best supporting cast the Heat has had.
With Wade being hurt they way he is and still is playing, you cant blame him. He has noone to help him. And who knows how long Shaq has been suffering though his pain. It says a lot for a person to play with pain, and Riley knew all of this and is still trying to kill them. The young players can only do so much but need guideiness from Riley. This is all RILEY fault no matter how you look at it. He is the prez and the CH he is supposed to take charge and set things in order and he just has not and is not doing it!

Should we now send Kobe a postcard thanking him for sending Shaq to us. Maybe if we throw in a t-shirt with that same message he'll beg Buss to take Shaq back and send us Bynum, Odum and Farmar. That would really solve our problems.
