Jalen Rose could help out. They need the extra fire power.

If they sign Rose, who is not a good defensive player, they should balance it with a signing of Shandon Anderson. Good bye rookies (Quinn and Hite). Its about winning now.

Rose would be a welcome addition. I like what he would bring to the table

These days anybody who can hit a consistent jumper is welcome. Plus at 6'8" he can play all 3 perimeter positions. If they're not gonna play Kapono, why not drop him for Rose?

Rose will be an upgrade to the rookies base don our current makeup, bt Riley has to open the offense a little more also, not relying on just wade and shaq

I think the Pat Riley and the "senior citizens" on the heat should retire already. They showed they are a good step and a half behind the younger teams. The NBA is the fast lane, and these senior citizens are just holding back our enjoyment of the game.

The "Senior Citizens" are polishing their rings right now.

With the signing of Rose the heat will become much better, but they need to start playing Posey and Kapono more often because they r 2 pretty good big men and have a perimeter shot. Wade also has a sick 3 ball but Riley wont really let him take it all that much. why not? is the question we should be asking. But it is only game 1 and there are 81 more to go. We'll be back in the Finals and we'll show 'em our "Senior Citizens" can still play ball.

I have nothing against Coach Riley but, If you're a young player with potential you wouldn't want to play for him. Coming from a longtime Heat fan, its almost frustrating to watch Dorell Wright go to waste. I'm not saying that he is a star, but lets all remember that the same thing happened to Jurmaine O'neal up in Portland. So lets just hope that Dorell is patient enough until he is given an oppertunity.

Bottom line HEAT NEED JASON WILLIAMS BACK..PERIOD...he makes players better around him...Wade too many turnovers a game..4 to 5 a game at Point..Paton too OLD.. Quinn not steady...

J. Rose may not be the messiah in regards to the Heat's woes, but he could make a great addition to the squad. Considering that he can play guard and small forward, it gives the Heat that option depending on the opposing team and the match ups on a game by game basis.
