i think it's ridiculous for all professional atheletes not to at least hit the stairmaster 3 times a week & some weights 3 times a week in the off-season to keep their bodies in decent shape.....i don't understand the mentality of these guys who are paid millions of dollars to basically be in shape.

Happy now Ira.
I am sick to death of the fools in Miami. You admit the guy is hurt. You admit he works out yet yet you write shit like this.
If you don't want him then $$$$$$$ RELEASE HIM but these mind games you are playing are stupid.
"He is in good shape" but it isn't enough because I am Pat flipping Riley and I want the moon, stars and sun.
Idiots like Ira and Pat Riley are the reason the NBA ratings are horrible. You are racist pigs and always go after the black athletes while letting the Brian Scalabrine's of the world weigh 400 pounds and never say a word.
While I will have to disagree with you on Riley being a racist, I give you kudos for calling out the writer. I'm a life long Knick fan, and I know Riley well. He is not a racist in any sense of the word. His problem if you want to consider it so, is that he is old school and has to have things done HIS way. He is bone headed and a stickler. Toine is Toine. A good player that is past his prime. I suspect Riley knows that that is why Optimum conditioning is such a sticking point. Look around the league at the various players that have played 10 plus years. It is only natural that they put on weight. Jordan entered the league some where around 202, and left at 240 and he was only 6-6. Toine has 17% body fat. The average is around 28, so he is far from being out of shape. The writer on the other hand, just like the writers in NY fail to look at all angles and pander to an audience that enjoys hearing a reading the negatives of Black men in America. Case and point the NY media and how Isaiah Thomas has been portrayed. Not just in the bogus sexual harassment claim, but the Larry Brown sage, the inflated payroll(evn though it was inflated when he arrived)

I like Walker and sometimes I get the impression that fans give him a hard time. And if everyone could recall last seasons first round sweep to the bulls, you would notice that while Shaq was in constant foul trouble taking, walker was the one who kept Miami in game until the last 2 minutes of the game(all games except for game 2). With that being said Toine is messing up bad he is really an inconsistent ball player and coming into camp weighing almost 20 lb.s over the listed weigth is terrible. Like i said i like Toine but he brings a lot of stuff on himself.

He's been a fraud since he got in the league and rode Shaq and Wade's coattails to a ring. Looks like he's been depressed and pounding Crispy Cremes since he saw the Garnett-Pierce-Allen press conference. The Celtics are coming to Miami to spank that fat @ss this year, Toine. Get off the couch and get ready to take it like a man.

Where is the article that Riley says he was mis-quoted.?

Ira is again printing only half the story. How does he still have a job.?

Trade toine already, he's more of a burden to the team rather than an asset... (as if he's been an asset before)

Further reason to be sickened that this guy, along with White Chocolate and a washed up GPayton won a ring. Barf.

no one knows what he is going through instead of talking about him pray for him.
