Walker,

You are a putz. So, I guess it was a bad idea to bring you, jwill, and that other guy - what was his name?Oh Shaq, thats right. Let me think, something else happened around that time too. Wait, its coming to me....Yes, we won a championship.

So, this is all Rileys fault. Yeah, that was pretty dumb of him bringing you in here with the rest of them for odom and butler. In doing that, the heat broke the Spurs rule of mortgaging the hypothetical future. Regarding Butler, I forgot that he made the allstar game the year he was traded.

So, what about the championship?Riley should have never pulled the strings to pull that off, right?

So, Riley is not supposed to pay wade and shaq all that money?Is it Rileys fault Shaq has all these freak injuries?

Next time you are in Miami, just leave your ring here. It seems you dont have much use for it anymore.

Another thing - how does it feel you being replaced by an upgrade in the name of Bount?

Putz.

Since the trade of Fat Antoine Miami has sucked. All the other title starters are there. Maybe they need an overweight small forward who misses a lot of 3's to get them into contention?

He is right and he does have a right to talk. Toine was inconsitent at times but last year I must admit evry game would have been a blow out in the 1st round against the Bulls if he didnt make some key shots. And with an injured Wade who was clearly not himself(No Way in the world can Hinrich gaurd him) and with consistent B.S. calls on Shaq( he owned Wallace but the flops), Wlaker and Posey did make some key shots to keep us within distance to win games in that series. Walker is right most of the blame been put on Shaq, well he averages 10 shot attempts a game and evry opposing center who plays him does not farewell( look at stats against Spurs, Suns, Magic, Rockets when he plays), and then people blame Wade defense. Well he has not been playing stellar defense, but how many teams have their best offensive scorer guard playing the opposing teams best offensive player? Riley is to blame he messed this tem up. For the past 6 yeras Detroit and San Antonio had the same core players. Even as bad as Lebron needs some help he still has the same group. Riley is the only one who does not believe in continuity. Miami never has the same group of guys. Wade and Shaq could score 20 plus points a piece and we still lose. We need a team not just 2 people.

Antoine is right. This team would not be this bad with Van Gundy. It is a fact. The Heat have more talent now then the Magic do and the Magic are thriving under Van Gundy.

That being said I don't believe Walker ever had an opinion. The Globe and Herald are tabloids that make up quotes all the time

It IS Riley's fault. They didn't want to pay for the talent they needed and now the fans have to suffer

Posey, Kapono and Jones could complain but Walker? The lack of Antoine is not Miami's problem.

hahaha !!! LMFAO!!! it's crazy to see that even Fatoine can take shots at us. It was bad when the knicks did it, but for Toine, it's the cream of the crop. He does have a point about keeping a core of a team, but when he thinks HE was a core of the team, that's when i rolled off my seat.

Good One Toine; In this dismal season that the Heat and Heat fan are having, you gave us a good laugh !!!!! At least you're still contributing for us somehow.!!

LMAO!!! Tippy, you think way too highly of yourself...
Posey and Kapono are definitely missed, but Eddie? He would clog up minutes at the SG position and not let Cook play, thus playing an aging player(36 yrs?) and setting back a young one.
Tippy, we don't miss you...

As much as i didn't liike Walker's play, he's absolutely right. The Heat could use him now, with Udonis out. Had Riley resigned Posey and Jones this offseason, the Heat would be in a better place. The addition of Cook would've offset the need of a point guard (Wade played point his first season), or Riley should've gone for someone at point in the first place. The additions of Jackson or Penny would've just rounded out the roster, not asking either of those two players to play a major role unless necessary. Smush was a mistake. Riley threw money at Mo Williams and Charlie Bell, and the Heat didn't get them anyway. Too many mistakes

EJ probably would've probably backed up Posey at SF, reason being EJ is a better player than Dorell Wright. Cook doesn't get playing time now anyway.

doesn't get playing time...? He's averaging 20 minutes a game! Yeah, he may be struggling right now and Riley might be cutting his playing time a bit but it's better than him having garbage time (ie. Dorell Wright in his rookie season)
