Trade Wade keep Marion. Wade sucked for 2 years. I watched every game the past 4 years on Sunshine Network and I never missed a game. Wade had the best year in the Champion season of his life. BUT NOW, 2 years later he has been a BIG BUST, HIS GREEDY play, his TURNOVERS,Wade's LAST SECOND SHOTS he took and missed with guys wide open. He wanted the ball in his hands every last 3 minuets of every game last 2 years and BLEW every one of them HIMSELF. He either TURNED it over, DRIBBLED of his foot, his hip, you name it he did it. But Mr. BIGHEAD also took last second SHOTS at least 27 of them MISSING 26 of them. Heat was leading in 20 of those games with under 1 minuet to play. WADE stop doing commericals (they even suck), WAKE UP DUDE you are DAMAGED GOODS and STINK the past 2 years. YOU are SO FAR from compairing yourself to a JORDAN or a KOBIE, those guys played TEAM BALL.

Rico, you hit the nail on the head with Wade. Agree get 2 good players for him now. Riley has to wake up and forget Wade. He cost them more than 27 games last year. And led the NBA's only stat.....TURNOVERS FOR 3 STRAIGHT YEARS. And they keep saying he plays the point. He want's the ball in his hands the last minuets of the game, Ha, Ha, Ha, yeah, and He LOST EVERY ONE OF THOSE GAMES.

The Heat should pick Beasley and keep him. He's clearly the best talent and we could use another star to pair with D-Wade. We still need a PG so trade Marion and acquire a PG. If Chicago drafts Rose then they will have a logjam at that position and they would still need an inside scorer. Send Marion to Chicago for Hinrich & Tyrus Thomas

Wade should get 1 more year to prove himself. If he sucks this year then we'll know for sure if he's damaged goods. We can see how he does in the Olympics, if he sucks, we can trade him before the season starts. He probably only played well b/c of Shaquille (tell me how my a## taste) O'neal commanded so much defensive attention. Without Shaq he's probably just a 16 - 20 ppg player. He needs to stay out of the commercials, leave Star alone, or at least find a hotter cougar, and recommit himself to the game.

I wonder if the Heat could have traded Marion for TJ Ford,instead of the Jermaine O`neill trade with Indy, and kept the no. 2 pick for Beasley?.

Only heat fans are stupid enough to want to trade Wade. He put up all star numbers still while injured (just imagine would he can do when he's not hurting) and probably would have won a lot more games if he had help. Send him to houston though! Its about time the rockets profited off some of this stupidity in the league's front offices

You need to be realistic! The man is correct! Wade has gone the way of many ego trippers.

Heat should KEEP Wade and make a move in the draft by tradeing the No.2 pick and Mark Blount to Memphis for No. 5 pick, Mike Miller and Mike Conley and that trade would fill the point guard postion and then with No. 5 pick they could draft Kevin Love out of UCLA.

I have a question hopefully one of you can answer for me.
What is the deal with our 2nd round (1st overall) pick to the Twolves this year in relation to our 1st round pick to them next year? Did we really give up a first and second for Ricky last year??
They have our second this year (from the Walker trade)... And I read that they also have our 1st next year to (which luckily is top 10 protected). If thats accurate, its ridiculous that we gave up that much for Davis. Also, what happened to the 2nd rounder we were supposed to receive for last years 2nd round pick, Stanko? Do we get that pick in '09?
If anyone can answer this i'll be impressed... Cause no one I ask seems to know anything involving these picks.
Dont *'in trade Beasley... Giddy up!!!

I'm a big time Wizards fan and a D-Wade Fan. But he is in the same boat as Arenas. If the Heat don't trade him now while the demand is high, and he goes through another bad season with two bad knees, they are going to get very little for him next year. You heat fans have to understand the future and stop living in the past. Trade Wade & the number 2 pick to Chicago his hometown for the number 1 pick, Aldridge, Deng, and Hughes. Draft Rose w/ that pick, a true point guard, that can distribute the ball and put players in position to score like Nash and CP3 does. As I recall, that's what made Marion the player that bought him over to Miami. That raises Marion's value to be traded before the February deadline this upcoming year and allows them to resign Deng. Trade Marion for a high lottery pick and good up-and-coming player and hope that you can pick up a good big man next year. That's how you build a Celtics-Pistons type team. WADE IS DONE. MARION IS A LOST CAUSE.

Trade Wade and Marion? Two highly respected and very talented players? For what? A chance? We should keep them both and get beasly or rose. Look at that three some. And what is so abd about Davis? Riles needs to hunt around for a better center. Not necessarily a star but someone better than Blount.

True Heat need to find a better center and yes heat should keep wade abd marion and if heat do draft beasly out him in the small forward spot and trade davis or put him in a package for a very good center but if heat draft rose then trade davis for mike miller.

In the article, I heard about the Pacers being interested in Marion. How about the 17th pick and Granger for Marion and 52nd pick. Granger is a good defender and 3 point shooter, and plays a good all-around game. With the 17th pick, the Heat could draft Mario Chalmers (provided he is still on the board). With the 2nd pick, Miami has to pick Beasley, since Rose is very likely to be chosen first. Next, in free agency, the Heat could sign DeSagana Diop to provide defense in the front line, and then sign a veteran with the exception. Just an idea. What do you guys think?
