C'mon now: Odom and Butler? If they were so great why did LA unload Caron and now are looking to unload Odom? We got a championship with that trade. End of story.

[bold]And just for fun:[/bold] All we have to do is offer Dorell Wright, Michael Doleac, Antoine Walker, and Udonis Haslem for Kobe and we're in. It works in the NBA Trade machine and how could the Lakers resist? ;)

Talk about chickens coming home to roost. The dismal prospects of this heat team, just like those of the dolphins, are due to colossal mismanagement. For years, both have gone for the short-term, trying to win with veterans rather than building the core of a team that can be a contender for years. That's why the Dolphins are going to stink for a couple of years, and the same for the Heat. The trade that brought Shaq to Miami may have shown a short-term profit in a championship, but by giving up Caron Butler and Lamar Odom, and locking themselves into Shaq's huge salary for five years, Miami doomed itself to the mediocrity or worse it is now experiencing. Get used to losing....

Starting line up to Wade returns, O'Neal, Haslem, Hardaway, Cook, Williams,Period! Wright I thought he would step up in the preseason, but he is hurting has chances, we may need to trade him. To get a third scorer on the team. This will be a season of mystery for the Heat, Will Wade and return to greatness, Will Shaq be more productive in rebounding, Will the bench contribute I know Zo will what about the rest of the team.

Absolutely no excuse for losing every pre-season game. None.

i m glad we got ricky davis = more consistent than antoine walker ever was.also he hopefully will be a good defender.the only puzzling thing now for past 2 years is - "why is dorell wright such a slow developer?his learning curve is bigger i m sure than was originally anticipated.apparently, he must be really immature - like a little kid attitude wise.you d think he d be motivated to excell - given his chance to play.what s up with him?he hasn t helped the heat much.they should trade him too.get a player who s experienced and a real man.

according to me wrote:
Hey chamo...wake up! Jameer is the starting point guard for the Magic! He's been contributing since he was drafted. That's called a return on your investment.
Excuse me but, the heat one a championship two years ago without the services of jameer, who is an average point at best. At 6 feet, he's too short to guard billups or anybody the heat has to go through in the playoffs. I think Pat knows a little more about b-ball than you, no?

Trade Wright, PERIOD. This dude is a 4 year project. Why is Dorell a slow developer ???? He will always be, his mind is NOT THERE. His preseason this year, he played like he is in High school, and not the NBA.

wright has no offensive game, or maybe he just doesn't have the heart to chuck it up and miss a couple. daequon who has no conscious, is gonna get plenty of run as a rookie. dcook is young but he's a player.
