Hey Antoine - I'm glad you're gone - you players are paid enough money to stay in shape and give us your best, you're just a lazy-@$$ MFR who can't cut it, just like Oneil is becoming.

Sounds to me that he is a little bitter! What i dont understand about people in general is if you have a problem why not talk about it instead of displaying such discord. Tone and Rileys should of worked their problems out.
Everyone is to blame for the losses not just one person. Including Riley!!! This is supposed to be a TEAM not one or two person's team. This is the reason why we cant win, no leaders from anyone!!!

Antoine Walker is a playmaker. Last year when we were getting blown out by the Bulls he is the main one who kept us in the games. He has heart and good skills for a guy his size. You all seem to forget that the guy is 6 Ft 9 or 6 Ft 10 and does all the things he does. He was asked to adjust by coming off the bench and defer scoring and ball handling to other team mates and he did. He is a very talented big man. Name some other big guys that has all the skills he has? Give the guy some respect because if he didn't come here we would not have won a championship for sure. Look at the stats from the playoffs. Who stepped up and who didn't.

He is right about Riley though. You dont hear Riles commenting on Shaq like he did with Antwoine. Want to fix the Heat? bring back Stan the Man!!!!!

wow mr deeds you are out of touch bro... that year we won in spite of Toine... i know he had one big game but that didnt make or break it for us, he was trluy awful, and there are SO MANY other big guys with much better skills than Toine...

Dirk
KG
L Odom
Sheed
T Prince

dude i could go on all day abou better SF's and PF's are light years ahead of toine... i mean what skills do you see? he can handle the ball, he cant rebound, he cant pass, he takes too many 3's and is one of if not the worst defensive players in the NBA... i just dont see what you are talking about

Most people are glad he is gone. He is the worst ball handeler I've ever seen.
Riley should talk the same trash about shaq 'cause he is going the same way.

There's only one guy on the front page, and that's Chris Quinn. Everyone else is in the funny pages.

Riley rode his *ss to do the things that were expected from him. He is suppossed to be a professional athlete, not spoiled thirtysomething jack*ss who never worked a real job in his life. Coach keeps yelling at me, I can't take it anymore. Didn't the checks cash everytime!
What's the matter Antoine your Moma never got 0on you to do your chores? Or was she to busy kissing your'e *ss hoping that you would make her rich some day. Grow up punk!

shaq is 35 and has given the nba 14 all star seasons an mvp award(should have won about 6) and 3 finals mvps. shaq has a leg to stand on in his arguement. hes just getting old. toine is still only 30 years old and plays like hes 49. for being 35 years old shaqs 15 points and 8 rebouonds a game isnt too shaby. the game has caught up with his style and wont allow him to produce anymore. the game is made for guys like toine to produce but he doesnt want to work at it.

Ira making stuff up again. Glad he left doesn't mean it was all about leaving Riley but you will do anything to make Walker look bad.

Why he would even have a conversation with you at all makes no sense. Your a liar Ira

Walker was not out of shape and he isn't now. The fact seems to be missing from the minds of everyone in Miami well I guess you can debate any of you actually have any brains in your head.

You never appreciate anyone which is pathetic.

You truly do not deserve a team in Florida. Not a single sports team.

Riley likes to play mind games and they don't work on todays NBA players.

Coach salad is not a Heat fan. He sounds like an idiot.

Mister deeds, WELL SAID. You were the only one watching this team. This team sucks right now and the proof is in the results. Walker was not the problem.

The Heat would never have beaten NJ or Chicago without Antoine so to say we one in spite of him is a mis justice.
