This sucks! We coulda used his hustle & defense.... but chill people-- its not like we lost out on Josh Howard or Shawn Marion. I'd like to see a move for an SF trade-wise (Maggette or Harrington, anyone?). If this ends up being our roster, with a healthy Wade JWill & Diesel we are still a top shelf team in the East, but we have to shore up our perimeter D.

more important than any trade would be
for Shaq to shoot a respectable 70% FT. that would change everything. if i owned the Heat, i wouldn't let him play unless he was willing to take instruction from Rick Barry and others and applied himself, and after any week he shot less than 60% i would make him sit for a week and play Zo/Doleac/backup there's no reason to cater to his aversion to shooting fouls any other way than he thinks he looks most manly shooting them.

Sarunas Jasikevicious just got waived by the Warriors... not the best option out there but he's a steady PG, wone big in Europe and just led Lithuania to 3rd place in the last tournament.
Personally, I'd still like to gamble on this than just stick with Parker and injury proned Williams.

PJ Brown Suck! Have we forgotten how little contribution that he has had in the past with the Heat in the playoffs. He is essentially another dear in the headlights playoff time Eddie Jones.

Heat fans stop your whinning, don't you see what's going on. The day the bucks matched thee heat for C.

Prediction, D-Wade out of Miami in two years. I would not blame him if he left.
You got that right on all counts. Let's get something straight for all yu Riley idolators, Preening Pat is being played bigtime by players who know the easiest and quickest way to get what they want from their teams is to play the Riley game.

Players have no qualms about playing Riley because they remember how Pat played Lamar Odom with all the big promises to get him here, then Preening Pat the Pussy quit on his team because he felt it couldn't win and left Odom high and dry. Then Preening Pussy traded Odom to the Lakers inferno to save Pat's reputation.

Riley is a fraud. I'm glad to see other people sticking it to Pat like he has done to others, especially the Miami Heat fans.

We didn't need any bucks anyway. Chris Quinn will take us to the finals this year, win the championship, and then be crowned king of miami for life! cantyaseethat

bell might have been a decent pickup... at a fair price but we're kinda SOL this upcoming season...

we really have no outside shooting...

shaq is so slow and lazy. Didn't he used to have this KILLER baseline turnaround 1 handed shot on the low block?

where the hell did that go?

we just have to wait another season it looks like....

dorell looks lackidazical on the court.... antoine has the side to side movement of a 400 pound elephant....

jwill... if he's heathy is good.

but who else?

zo is zo... he's a true warrior. dorrell needs to learn a thing or 2 from him.

so who else do we have?

doleac? funny he was a great pick and pop player before coming to the heat.

use him the right way.

we have no SF, a bunch of has beens and a couple of players...

fun times in miami this year.:)
