Remember the days when we could get whatever upper level player we wanted?... Not anymore.
Now the Heat are a joke... They cant even sign back-ups to the roster.
I hope Smush is gonna be worth... Cause he's all we've got to show for from this off season.
Pathetic!

Pat needs to go!
Prediction, D-Wade out of Miami in two years. I would not blame him if he left.

Its really reached a low point when we can't even get Milwaukee backups on this team. Think about it. We have now gone after two Buck players!?! And not even as starters necessarily. Of course its just a microcosm of all that is wrong with the NBA and why its viewership and fan base is collaspsing. The product is very bad except for a handful of franchises.(and we ain't one of them.)

Umm Chris...I don't know how the Heat is a joke...the Bucks had the right to re-sign him...the ball was not in the Heat court...and Mo Williams..I'm sure you wouldn't give up $20 million of guaranteed money to play for the Heat...would you

Trying to sign players for the Heat seems futile.
You can't blame them for trying, but using money for Smush might have cost them on this deal.
Hopefully they suck and can get a top draft choice and have alot of cap room next year to pickup some decent FA.

What a bunch of morons! The Bucks held the rights to Bell! If anything, I smell a rivalry developing with that crappy team...
Now the Heat are stuck, that is the bigger issue. This deal was supposedly the one that would have resulted in J-Wil going to GS for Pietrus - a move that would have drastically changed the Heat. Now, it looks like we'll be fielding the same bunch as last season.

Dump that lazy overpaid Shaq while he has value. He's been going down hill since he left LA. He's either injured or he's a liability with the free throws. His overall play including the defense has been average at best for a center making 20 mil.

I would think that all of the shaq and riley fans would'nt mind the heat being in last place, for years to come.After all who cares that the only real talent on this team is an injured Dwayne Wade and a self-fulfilled riley whose only talent for years has been deciding when to quit and when to come back as well as ending the careers of players who are unfortunate or crazy enough to play for him.Good job pat that's the way to drive a team in the ground.

Talk about knee gerk!! Guys, the who is better than a healthy Dwade in the east? And there is still no one that can handle Shaq in the post one on one. I am dying to sign another superstar or make a blockbuster move...can you imagine Kobe down here with Wade n Shaq? We all have wet dreams, but Cmon ppl...realistically the Heat will bring it this year. I think they have a point to prove. They were sluggish and embarrased in the first round 4-0. Trust me...you'll remember me when were in the Finals this year.
