It would piss-me-off if I were the coach of the Bulls and a team that had "TANKED" the season knocked me out of the play-offs when they had just secured the worst record, then decided to play basketball for aq change!

So much for last year's pick. MIA Cook has virtually been missing in action. Talk about a limited skill set. How will this guy ever help the Heat unless he's wide open to shoot his erratic shot?

I'm surprised that the mighty Bulls fell so low. Weren't they supposed to make aa legitimate run for a title? Then to have the listless Heat clean their plows..... Tuff one to take if yer a Bullce fan...

"Down 11 in the third quarter, the Heat battled back behind the career-high 18 points of forward Kasib Powell and 16 apiece from guard Chris Quinn and forward Ricky Davis, to snap a seven-game losing streak."

That sounds like a team that was still making an effort, not a team that was TANKING the season.

Nice to get some revenge on those loudmouth Bulls, who were bragging all season about how they knocked off the Mighty Heat. Looks like the slipper didn't fit Cinderella this year, though! LOL!

If the Heat get Derrick Rose or Michael Beasley in the draft, get Alonso back next year, have a healthy DWade, keep Haslem and JWill, they will make the playoffs. A few free agents added to this mix would also help.

Pat's right. Majority of the draft may be
raw,and it's hard finding the right ingredient
for the mix. We need Powell & Lasme
for the team.Hopefully win Rose or
Beasley from the draft.
My 1st 5: ROSE / WADE / POWELL /
MARION / J. O'NEAL
or: BANKS / WADE / BEASLEY /
LASME / OKAFUR

Payback for Chicago...Well Done Heat!!!! A team that has Hingrich and Gordon will never be in the conference finals.

Kapono and Posey gone!!

...that was the problem. Teams did not double-team Shaq 'cause they knew no one could make a shot from outside.

If they draft Derrick Rose they re-sign JWill? The lottery has always been against Miami. They probably end up with 3 or 4.

The guys still playing are not tanking. They are "injured". The ones on the floor are trying to prove they can handle the NBA.

If Miami has a shot at the play-offs they have a shooting guard. How many minutes would he get?
He is playing because Riley and DWade screwed up last year by postponing surgery.

Maybe they rebuild around Kasib Powell, Ricky Davis and Chris Quinn?
