THE ONLY WAY TO GET THE YOUNGSTERS TO DO WELL IT TO GIVE THEM MINUTES, IT'S JUST A SHAME THAT IS BECAUSE OF INJURIES TO OTHERS.

COME ON RILEY, CHANGE YOUR WAYS, LEARN FROM THE OTHER TEAMS THAT GIVE THE YOUNG ONES OPPORTUNITIES.

WITH OLD ONES YOU MIGHT WIN NOW, WITH YOUNG ONES, YOU WILL WIN CONSISTENTLY FOR A LONG TIME.....WE WON THE CHAMPIONSHIP AND THEN WHAT? GIVE THEM A SHOT, PERMANENTLY.

LIKE I KEEP SAYING, START THE YOUNG GUYS! TRADE THE BALL HOG AND THE SHOW BOAT! USE HASLEM AS A STEADYING FORCE! THIS WOULD BUILD A GOOD TEAM FOR A LONG TIME!

Why don't the younger guys play more? They seem to have much more energy that the worn out veterans and are equally consistant with thier shots

are you serious, Chris Quinn, you have got to be kidding me. Try Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, Amare Stoudamire, this list can go on and on.

FINALLY...just let them play. Everybody makes mistakes. We're not living in Adolph Rupp's world anymore. Everybody is gonna screw up.

Now...get rid of Smush and trade J-Will for some more youth to surround Wade and Shaq.

Play the young dudes more.. at least they make their free throws.. You would think after all these years that Shaq would finally make free throws consistently.. NOT !!! Getting the big bucks and cant make a free throw??? Whats wrong with this picture??

Fire Riley. He just made totally disastrous personell decisions and gutted this team. NONE of the guys he brought in can shoot.

Listen up y'all cause I'm gonna tell you somethin real. Mark Blount is the best center on the team, but ol' coach R got it in for him. Just give him the rock and let him show you what he can do. He can run, block, shoot and hit the glass big time. He can fire it up from downtown. You put him on the floor with D'Wade and we in business again. Championship City. Forget Zo dude's been washed up for years and Shaq ain't that far behind. He should stick to rappin and hangin on Sobe.
