Pop goes the season? With two weeks to go before the season opener, that might be a stretch for the Miami Heat. Full Story

I don't understand what is going on with todays fragile pro ball players! It seems they are like babies and maybe the problem is they were not breast fed and their bones and muscles are not fully grown! Look back in the 50s and 60s and you rarely see the likes of what goes on today!

What's the best option out there in terms of 3-pt specialists? Would it be wise to sign/swing a deal for Adam Morrison?

The Heat need to look into acquiring JJ Redick from Orlando. Hedo is in the final year of his contract & he's opting out. The Magic can't afford to pay him market value b/c their already at the cap with Lewis, Howard & Nelson. The Heat need to use their chips to fill all their voids....

Seriously, no Heat fan is gonna be upset if we jettison Haslem & Marion for a PG, shooter & center. So, who is out there on the hot seat that could help us: Eddy Curry & Starbury (benched in NY), Raymond Felton, Lamar Odom, Adam Morrison, Chris Wilcox & Channing Frye....

Quinn and Cook have shown they can shoot. Giving them an early season tryout is better than rushing out and getting a body. Of course, if Riley can trade Marion and Banks for a big time shooter that's another story.

Maybe this will accelerate trading Marion...and somehow ridding this team of Blount. Unless something out of this world develops...Haslem is a Heat for life - he's probably second to Wade almost last on the trade list. UD is too valuable, does so many team things to count...just see him staying forever. Riley really needs to move on this center-less situation sooner than later because presently...this is another lottery team

Somebody mentioned trading for Morrison or Redick...PLEASE! Neither could guard your mother - I'll become a Magic fan if that happens!

It's not the players it's the damn coaching staff!!! If you compare the number of injuries the heat have with the other teams you'll see what i mean. after marion was traded to miami he got injured.
How about a trade

Make a trade for JJ redick, I think Miami needs him. And JJ is not happy with the little time he receive in Orlando.
