Im sorry Hide you talk to much. First of all A. Walker was a success here in Miami, "tippy toe 3". Dont you remember him helping this team win a championship? Get your Heady out of your butt.(excuse my french) Now! You did mention some key moments. Like the players who turned 360 when landing here in MIA and no not the airport. Rafer, and Mason, good job bringing those boys up, esp. Mashburn I still have his shot dating back to Coconut Grove times. But you also Hyde need to learn, to quit while your ahead. Ok? Its for your own good! And Smush Parker? Common Hyde!!!!!! Your better than that bro. To bring up that guy, is like jumping off the Sears tower for a retarded person calling you "St-st-stupid".

#1, JO is already here. Its not, "when will he be here?". Its when, "when will he erupt?". 30 is the new 22 boy

JO is one of the toughest guys in the league, and one of the only players in the league that back up what he does, unlike the fake "tough guys" like kmart and KG. Its amazing what a player like that can do for your team, most people loved him for it up in TO. He will help you in the playoffs.

This was a crap article. Hyde is a good writer but this was total shlock. What does his headband have to do with him grabbing boards? A couple of weeks ago he grabbed 19 boards, headband and all. To pretend the 1-second act of putting on a sweatband detracts from one's preparedness is beyond stupid.

The headband could be psycho somatic, you know all in his mind which influences his play on the court. JO needs a few monster 20/20 games & I'm sure Riley relents just to keep him producing. I like the article as it relates to players rehabbing their careers here-its true. JO is just as talented as Rice, Hardaway, Mashburn, ZO etc. SO, history says he will revitalize his career & prove the haters wrong just like D Wade has done thus far this season!! I'm hoping thats the case. I think he may have at least 8 bounds last night had he played the whole game. He has the potential to return to All Star form w/in this system. The Heat like to play from the inside-out. JO is a skilled player who knows how to past out of the double team. Lets go HEAT!!

Look here's the deal D wade we know this is your team last nite was horrible.Get jermaine the ball early and you do you in the latter part of the quater when teams have to bring in the second unit ala shaq and kobe .coach you gotta use magloir only cause he sets great screens for wade so play him along jermaine somtimes they will rule the boards cook u need to stop shooting that meny three's drive and cut the rest of the team needs to keep moving when wade got the ball or not.Beasley take your time set it before it happens and crash the boards.

O'Neil doesn't need his career revived and being Wade's personal ball boy so Wade will stay in Miami is what you expect of anyone and everyone that comes to Miami.

BY THE WAY, Hyde erased the other pro Antoine comments. No place for free speech I guess

Jermaine said he was going to revitalize his career in Toronto too, see how that worked out?

No offense to the guy I like him but he's past his prime, can barely keep up with his man and is injury prone. He didn't even make it one game without being shuttled off the to locker room for Xrays.

He's not going to start getting 20/10 for the Heat. Maybe 13/7 at best.
