Riles what he hell are u doing u left davis on carter when dorel was defending great no wonder we can't close out games when u put offense and not backcourt defense and therefore get ur center fouled out! we will never close out games with J will defending and davis defending. give the young guy a chance to play some good defense when the game is on the line!

PLUS U NEED REBOUNDING AND HE GIVES U THAT D WRIGHT HAS PROVEN TO BE REALLY RELIABLE ! WE NEED A SECOND SCORER ON THE TEAM CAUSE SHAQ NOW HAS BEEN SHIFTED TO 3RD OPTION! EVEN TOUGH HE IS MY FAV PLAYER IN ALL NBA I HAVE TO ADMIT IT SHAQ IS NOT THE YOUNG OLD SHAQ, HE CAN STILL PRODUCE BUT NOT LIKE HE USED TO WICH IS NORMAL AT 35! DAVIS IS NOT THAT SECOND SCORER!DORELL IS NOT BUT AT LEAST HE PLAYS DEFENSE WITHOUT FOULING! WE NEED DEFENSE TO CLOSE OUT GAMES SPECIALLY NOW THAT ZO MIGHT NOT COME BACK!

Riley, you are using up D-Wade and putting him in harms

way for another physical disability because you have NO

ONE else to put the ball in the hoop !

PLEASE trade WADE let him out of this pathetic situation. Leave Pat Riley and Shaq here to get what they deserve.Riley gets rid of everyone thinking Shaq cares about anything. If he just goes through the motions and shows no cares in the world. Bet you he moves faster to the bank with his fat check.Now that Zo is gone only Wade and Haslem only players on team worth anything. Zo was playing better than Shaq, now with him gone and no one to rebound or play inside defense. Shaq seems to always get in foul trouble in 1st quarter than sits out half the game. Way they are going LOTTERY pick in the future. PLEASE TRADE WADE!

beginning to wonder if riley can coach, or does he just ride the wave of the superstar. he is going to burn out d-wade, and for gosh sakes, he has coached d wright for 3 years, if the kid can't play whose fault is it.

Riley needs to stop trying to reinvent the wheel and put the ball in Shaq's hands DOWN LOW. Only problem is he let all the shooters leave. But as long as he is on this team you need to go to his strengths DOWN LOW. Heat will not win without Shaq's help and Shaq will not be productive away from the basket!!!! Somebody please make some 3's

Thanks cowboy's fan - I've been calling for a Wade trade for a few weeks. Not that I want to see him go, but I can't see him re-signing and I wouldn't be surprised if he demands a trade either this season or next. May as well trade Wade, get some picks...and...sigh...START THE REBUILDING PROCESS (without Riley and Shaq of course)

The Heat are in a world of trouble. They should have signed some decent point guards in the off season. Quinn & Parker are jokes and Williams is hurt alot.

EXACTLY JUST WAVES ON THE SUPPERSTAR! WHEN THEY ARE DONE HIS TEAM IS DONE. HE DOESN'T MAKE SET PLAYS FOR HIS GUYS. JUST LET THE STARS DO IT ALL, SHAQ EARLIER NOW WADE SINCE LAST YEAR NO WONDER WE LOOSE ALL THE TIME THE TEAM HAS NO OTHER THREAT WHATSOEVER!!!
