Great article,,I hope this move turns out to be a special one,Penny and Shaq were the reason I started watching Basketball back in the day..This for once hopefully will give the nba a great story to talk about rather then all the bad that has been going on lately..

One of the things Penny has always been was a very high IQ player,and that you cannot lose..So now finally being healthy I hope he has a big roll for this team and Shocks a lot of doubters who thought he was done..I cant wait to See it....

I has been a few fluff articles....but they have me feeling that the Heat may just have gotten lucky (a reborn JWill and Penny). Those two at 100% healthy are a handful of talent...both able to penetrate...which is huge in this league.

IF they are back like these articles make me want to believe...IF its is really true...the Heat actually have a spot at the championship again.

But, it really is a big IF...I would be estatic if any one of them is able to return to their former glory.

Those two with Wade, Shaq, Wright, Zo, and Haslem...

I can not wait to see the Heat play this year. It is so exciting to see all these Old Guys still light it up like I do off the court. Would love to say more but I have a Yoga class at 9AM!

These articles sound very similar to the ones they were writing about the Dolphins before the season.

"The team seems more relaxed without Saban."
"Cameron is an offensive guru who will open up the passing game."
"Joey Porter opposite JT will an un-stoppable combination!"
"Ted Ginn will run back punts/kickoffs, and greatly improve Miami's field position."
"Jason Allen is much more comfortable at corner and should see time as a nickel DB."

So far:

I love the Heat but I forsee these old guys starting to wear and get hurt during the 82 game season. Everyone is "fresh" and Healthy at the beginning but old injuries tend to re-appear.

Go Heat.

Will see, still think they should of looked at someone younger. Remember the Bulls ran all over us, can Penny keep up??? playing with Dwade will make things easier on the court. Go Heat !!!

Forget penny, what the Heat really needs to do is bring back Tim Hardaway. He's good for locker room morale. Unlike some other types of players.

I Hope Penny can help us out alot we are going to need it. Dorell Wright is time to come of age, and produce. Shaq it's time for him to take Charge. Wade it's time to silence the critics you are a great Superstar player, It's time for Walker to player like his allstar Boston days again. Cook we want to play hard to a team that's in need of it's players to come out and play hard, Let's go get them!! Pistons, Cavs, Bulls, and Now Celtics will be tough but i think Miami is tougher let's send Zo out with a bang!!! Let's bring home the rings back again.New slogan for Miami: Play Hard and Dream later!!

Evidently, Ira responds to constructive criticism as well as, say Antoine Walker. Make believe it is not there. If you cant answer the simple who what where when and why, then you don't deserve your job, or, at bottom, don't do it very well. We look forward to you posting the same lame quotes tomorrow, with a new title of course, and then calling it journalism. Sorry to tax your brain.
