Why should Beasly care? The coaches don't. Now he is saying whatever the media wants to hear because he doesnt care anymore. The faster the season ends the better he can start or maybe move on.

It's going to be a long night unless he recovers to 100%.

Spo's one dimensional "give it to Wade" strategy now looks risky.

After ignoring Beaseley's development all year, he wants a highly unpolished Beaseley to step up.

The results are going to be obvious. Duh.

you mean no help outside of the 18pts and 7 rebounds that oneal is giving them. How about wade stops complaining to the refs and takes the ball to the hoop. he is a great player, but i question his shot selection!

Spo yanked Beasley but let Wade look like a fool! Why not give Beasley a chanch on a game like that when all Wade can do is dribble off his feet and shoot air balls! Beasley should be traded to a team that can see what they have and reap the benifits! Spo is a ROOKIE!

Spo panicked and once again killed the rotation and ball movement that won the provious 2 games.

He yanked Magloire after the second foul but seemed to forget about him for the rest of the game which allowed ZaZa Whatever to have his way.

Beas got 11 minutes. Instead of calling Beas aside and saying 'drive don't settle for jumpers', he just yanks him. Beasley could not have played any worse than Haslem Monday night.

If Wade was so injured then he could have played the role of facilitator but insted he chose to bring up the ball instead of Chalmers and dribble and shoot. C'mon 26 shots with back spasms, move the ball. Here's a new one for you Wade: PASS! It would free up Cook, Chalmers, Jones, O'Neal and Beasley. They are called teammates.

The coach and co-captains have to take the heat for this one yet the media seems only to focus on Beasley, Chalmers and Cook. Obvious scapegoats but shows that they either didn't watch or analyze the game.

Wade is a ball hog.

He whines and winces all game complaining that he is hurt, yet that does not stop him from chucking up air ball after air ball. Sure he gets his numbers, but that is at the cost of the team losing.

wasn't it last year after every loss he would complain that he was injured. A mysterious injury that he played through while he led his team to defeat after defeat.

most players that are injured sit out so they are not a detriment to their team.

no more excuses for losing.

I agree with you. Wade should not be jacking up so many shots but passing instead. Spo' is more of a rookie than Beasley because the kid played ball. I don't think Spo ever coached even in an Optimist league. He panicked when Wade hurt his back and did not know how to respond.

Beasley needs to step up...He's struggled big time in the playoffs, and it's not becouse of PT or Spo...I was glad Spo yanked him when he did.. Beasley looked lost, missed a couple shots including a big three, and was getting schooled while the lead doubled...you guys all want to see this rookie play but all he has done is shrunk like a punk during the playoffs...too young & too immature just like they said when when he was drafted.
