The core from the Heat's 2006 championship is intact but still ...

In the end, you are defined by your success and failure. But when the two arrive in that precise order, one can't help wonder about legacy.

How about convincing Riley (Shaq & Kobe - be friends again) to agree to try a trade with the LAKERS to get KOBE to the HEAT?

As the recently discussed deal between the Lakers, the Kings and the Bulls (with the Lakers getting Artest & Wallace, and the Kings getting Gordon & PJ Brown, and Kobe going to the Bulls) did not go through, basically because of Kobe's No-Trade clause, there is/would be a window of opportunity for the HEAT to get KOBE under the following (technically checked out) trade scenario:

The MIAMI HEAT would get Bryant KOBE (with a Salary:$19,490,625 and Years Remaining: 3 --- PTS: 45.0 REB: 8.0 AST: 4.0 PER: 30.78 --- KOBE's contract would have: No-Trade Clause Cannot trade this player without receiving his consent. Only a player with at least 8 years of NBA experience, including at least 4 years with the team he is signing with, is eligible to negotiate a no-trade clause into his contract.

The LA LAKERS would get in return from the HEAT the following players:-> a) Dorell Wright --- with a Salary:$2,040,746 and Years Remaining: 1; -> b) Jason Williams -- with a Salary:$8,937,500 and Years Remaining: 1; and -> c) Udonis Haslem, with a Salary:$6,050,000 and Years Remaining: 3 ....

This would be for all parties a workable trade, and I believe that it would not only benefit the HEAT, as well as the LAKERS (as the deal is surely better as the above mentioned 3-way trade between the Bulls, KIngs and Lakers)

This would be great for the HEAT, more or less guaranteeing us a place in the NBA Finals for the next 2 years to come - including this season!

THE HEAT should go for this trade and GET KOBE NOW!

Let's Be Clear! Once a Champion, Always A champion. The Heat are fighting against themselves to live their winning creed "15 strong." From a personnel standpoint they are better. Kapono, Posey and Jones enjoyed their success because of the constant doubles Wade & Shaq warrant. They were after thoughts on their teams prior to coming to Miami. Davis, Parker & Hardaway will quickly erase the memory of what was lost to what was gained. Davis & Parker are more athletic than of those guys. Penny's knowledge & experience outweigh all combined.
Shaq is correct it's about Legacy, for thats all anyone will remember 20-30 years from now. So, if they display Heart & Character there's no doubt they will be vindicated from last season's tumultuos end. "Character is not made in a crisis- it is only displayed!" (Robert Freeman) Let's Go Heat!!
