GET someone GOOD in this years free agent market. SPEND SOME money. Mo Williams, Ron Artest. Blake is a BACK-up in the NBA. So get someone good. BUT IT is SHAQ'S team and DWade's team PERIOD. Any one who comes to the Heat knows WADE will be a BIG TIME BALLHOG, and Shaq want's the ball also. A 2 MAN TEAM that's it. AND Others in the NBA know that. Riley is just a puppet. Shaq, and WADE run the team.

wouldnt it be nice to have an athletic energy center like say Earl Barron , or a long versitile guard/forward like say Dorrell Wright. Man if only Riley had players like that on the team. I am sure he would play them and let them develop a nice groove instead of giving all the playing time tooft injured vets like say gary Payton. If only we had players like that.

Azubuki for the warriors is a free agen right? we should go after him. He has a decent game, is a hard worker and has a level head. Anyone that has studied his game knows what im talking about. Id rather use a mid level on him than blake.

Yes the Heat does need a small forward and point guard, bad!!! Simien was a fine player in college, he has played much to get in the rotation, how is his knee hurt?? I think the best fit for them would be Cory Maggetti, and Steve Francis, that right a point guard with the same skill sets as Wade, though he'll have to stop dribling so much and get that killer instinct, wish I'm sure being around Wade, Shaq, and Riley that shouldn't be a problem.
