Riley still plotting; lineup is a mystery

Full story: South Florida Sun-Sentinel

The question was simple. The answer was a bit more complex than you'd want less than three weeks from opening night.

You want Riley to tell you off again Ira? Put a better spin on this.

The Heat is a farce? They charge me $20 for parking so that Antoine Walker can have his Key Lime Pie for dessert everyday.

Oh, Ira, you have such perseverance to want to write about Riley's team and the debacle of old fat men that used to play basketball. But:

The Dolphins are 0 and 6.

The Marlins owners and the super-Napoleon son in law, Dave Samson are threatening to sell all the top players and take the team to Las Vegas where Joey Porter hangs out (go ahead make my day).

The UM has Kyle Wright as their leader for the 3rd year in a row.

The coach of the Dolphins went to the moon and back to bring into the Dolphin system a 38 year old concussed and scrambled QB in Trent Green and does not want to play young players.... isn't that what Riley is all about, playing all guys all the time.

But none of that matters because my big concern is that Antoine Walker, the favorite bumbling and fumbling and dribbling off the foot and his head Heat players weights more than the left tackle of the Dolphins and he is supposed to be the starter that helps stop Chicago's Luol Deng and company and the new Celtics James Posey, Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett and the rest of the casts of Celtics.

Oh, and wouldn't you know that Shaq is already injured and looking forward to taking the year off to try to comeback in the playoffs. But the Heat might not make the playoff.

How is the Key Lime Pie at Joe's... Antoine?

Riley is a lousy coach, he hasn't developed or built Wright's confidence, Shaq and Wade won the championship while Riley came up with an absurd slogan. Show us something this year Riley!!!

Hey, Pat, Just announce Wade will be out until March or something. Maybe someone will feel sorry for you, but don't bet on it. Can't say I will feel sorry for the money the organization loses in May, June, and July. Gotta spend it to make it. You played coy all summer, but the dance is now about to begin.

Riley is a great bench coach of a championship-caliber team.
He totally sucks at drafting, evaluating, building confidence of
young players, who to play and not play, best combinations etc.
and he is greedy and egomaniacal and a frontrunner and a liar. But he looks good and sounds good so he gets away with it.

Wright will stand out when the starting lineup gets healthy. With Shaq down low, he draws double teams and kicks it out for an open 3. D-wade gets doubled all the time and can penetrate and dish like no one else. Without these 2, it doesn't matter if you have Posey, Kapono, or Wright out there. Nothing is happening without our playmakers.
Look to Wright's blocks, steals and rebounds per game. They are better than what Posey or Kapono gave us.... The points will come, and when D-Wade comes back this team can now change pace at times and run. Have faith and give Wright a chance until Mid-December. Remember, Wade said that Wright is THE BEST ATHLETE ON THE TEAM!!!

I Dont understand why Miami could not sign and free
agents as to date, also we lost our own free agents to
other teams. Zack Randolph would have solved a lot of
the problems that Miami has. The New York Knicks are
way over the cap and they continue to sign and i would
not be surprised if they find a way to get Kobie Bryant and
I would be just as must surprised if Miami get any one
that would really help us. I will not be ordering the NBA
PASS., until Miami improve.

Could this just be the start of a series of seasons to come and view the prehistoric bones of players who used to be able to play. Oh yea - "over there son...there used to be the player they called Shaq...and over there - Penny. It that Antoine or the security guard? Oh my...this could be very frightful".

It really doesnt matter. DWAYNE WADE IS THE WHOLE TEAM> Get rid of Shaq so you have money on a real player that cares to play hard ALL season long.

Has the game past Pat Riley by it appears this is the case and Shaq who I am his biggest fan needs to retire !!!! There needs to be a new no nonsense coach who love to start young players such as the bull and who can develop these young players to be starters instead of hating youth and prefering older guys like himself Jeff Van Gundy
knows how to get the best out of young guys Pat Riley does not and Shaq is holding up the team with his I dont play to the end attitude often injured
and never motivited I love how Shaq always made his teams better but that is not happening now he is making them
worse

Man, as afr as I am concern until the season starts I have no worries about the heat. Its preseason for goodness sake so many teams appear to be contenders around this time of the year when actually they are pretenders. Remember atlanta last year and the lakers are good examples both started off hot and both fell off. As for shaq he could do what he wants. Quick saying he makes the team worse, if it wasn't for him we would not have made the playoffs the last 2 years just look at the stats when shaq is out compared to when wade is(the past 2 years they were 10 th in the east when shaq was out). Yea he average career lows in ppg with 17 a night but he shot 60 percent from field which means he did not shoot enough. Wade is great, he had a amazing championship series but he played like that all last year before the injury but the heat was still losing. Shaq appearance on the court will dictate the heat season. He will make the players around him better and when Wade return they would be even better, but until the season start I will sustain my view. Preseason means nothing but who the 12-15 man on the bench will be. The heat will do fine.

I think you are all overreacting Riley came by my card printing business and had cards made that say inspirational stuff, because whats a 20 million dollar contract when 10000 cards say 15 strong... now thats motivation. Have no fear people.

There is a rumor tat the reason the Mad Dog can only stay for 1 hour with Humper Goldberg in the Power Hour is because there is a great deal of Matzo Ball Flatulence flying inside the studio and that couple with Green Lizard burps it is like in the old they of Pompei before Vesuvius just covered it all up with a little fire and ashe....!
