Bibby SUCKED this year, shooting STUNK, and turnovers...Between him and DWADE the HEAT would have 13 turnovers a game Wade 7 and Bibby 6. Both are SAD at the point guard. Get rid of Wright,DUMB and DUMBMER, he still LOST out on the court. GONE. Payton hope he retires, but a great Point guard in his day. GONE. Haslem, back to the D-League. GONE. Walker played horrible in the season, but good in the playoffs..GONE. Wayne Siemon, food sickness for another 2 years. GONE Earl Baron, just a 7 foot stick, WEAK. GONE Quinn, no NBA player at all, but played in it. EDDIE JONES, I see why the HEAT traded him last year..HE just wore DOWN after 18 games.. But if the HEAT want to win..80% of the plays are to Shaq and DWADE. SHAQ who looked good for only the 1st 2 quarters, and DIED in the last 2. His free throws HURT in 3 series games with BULLS, and the other, WADE'S BALLHOGGING, and POOR PASSING, 26 TURNOVERS FOR WADE in the series..against the BULLS lead to HEATS downfall. NEED MORE TEAM BALL, and TEAM play..JUST WATCH THE GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS..THAT'S TEAM BALL. HEAT FORGOT they were 17 and 6 without WADE when he got hurt...AND 2 and 10 when he came BACK. A healthy Williams at the point and DOOLING as a back-up next year, and TEAM BASKETBALL, Heat will win the EAST.

Miami doesn't have enough cap space to pick up Telfair and if you take Marcus Banks it will be good so lb gets more time!

Please take Marbury off the Knicks hands.. He's a good pg and probably would love to play with Shaq and Wade. His contract is up in 2 years and would be a great expiring contract to trade after the 2009 season...

Riley, depended on to many vet players. he should have taken known players that were from overseas that could have backed Wade, and posey. a player that had great quality and cheep as a free agent. They had one or two of them in a work out last year Jimmy Baxter and Rodger Powell Jr. and they let them slip away.

yah right! in additional to what paul wrote is that the team needs a shooting forward liked Tim Thomas of the L.A. clippers & Mike Bibby of the Kings. let go to Wright Gary Quinn Walker Doleac. Bibby & Thomas fits in for a Champ next season. O'neal Haslem Thomas Wade Bibby with supporting cast such as williams jones posey kapono mourning.

We need Bibby or Miller.Say goodbye to Gary an Walker .I was happy to see Gary got his well deserved ring, now it is time to go,Jason williams too.We need Morning and Shaq for the one two punch,not to mention Wade.Posey must stay no matter what.Don't give up on Jones yet we need him for the regular season to give us a better seeding in the playoffs.Haslem does not look motivated anymore.Thatis a cause for concern.We need to boost our bench. We need a Dennis Rodman type of player,e.g loose balls and rebonds.If we do that ,then we would win the championship again.Remember I said that.

The heat are done they need to start over from scratch...Shaqs a old man he should just concentrate on being a cop an eatin doughnuts since he likes being out of shape anyway. An the rest of the squad is full of over the hill bums i.E: Antoine Walker, Eddie Jones, Jason Williams

IF YOU GIVE ME O'NEAL I MAKE HIM CRY LIKE I MADE MANNY WRIGHT SOIL HIS UNDERWEAR.

What a bunch of malarkey. All of those guys, and particularly Riley and O'Neal bambozzled the biggest fraud on season ticket holders by waiting for the season to start to take time off for medical reasons which should be taken care of during the offseason.

They sold big $$$ season tickets with the marketing of defending a championship and they all stuck one up the ticket buyers and the people of South Florida.

What a fraud. And what an inmature big fat baby O'Neal has proven to be when he refuses to learn to improve his free throws even at this stage when he does not have skill or will to jump anymore.

They got Van Gundy fired! And won last year on the the will and stregnth of one player and just bareley got by.

AGAIN...IF YOU GIVE ME O'NEAL I MAKE HIM CRY LIKE I MADE MANNY WRIGHT SOIL HIS UNDERWEAR. I slap the big baby around a couple of times and he would never be wasting time wanting to be an undercover policeman. What a ridiculous baby of a man.

WHAT O'NEAL NEEDS IS A MAN OF INTEGRITY LIKE MYSELF COACHING HIM AND PUSHING HIM. Riley is simply living out his years and vegetating pretending that he is the same old Riley. WELL HE IS NOT.

SADDAM HU-SABAN

P.S.: I heard the rumors that on my way out of town I abandoned our family cat and left him in the neighborhood. Not true. I dropped him off in a burlap sack and with a letter of recommendation behind Don Shula's. The Alabama Boosters gave me a whole new cat. Everyone is replaceable in my system.

The one man team of Dwayne Wade is not better than a five man team that passes and fines the open man for the basket. Example: Chicago Bulls.

Are you talking about the same DWade & Co that got over on the Bulls on their way to the NBA Championship just last year or this years injury riddled team? Big difference.
If the Bulls get by the Pistons they're worthy of some comment but I doubt they win more than 2 games against Detroit let alone win a championship.

WELL I DONT KNOW ABOUT PILLUPS, BUT CHAUNCEY BILLUPS IS A FREE AGENT AT THE END OF TE YEAR, AND LAST TIME I CHECKED, THE WOULD MEAN THE PISTONS HAVE NO SAY WHERE HE GOES, UNLESS HE CONSENTS TO A SIGN AND TRADE

YOU NEED PROFESSIONAL HELP, STARBERRY IS A HYBRID GUARD, NOT A TRUE PG WHICH IS WHAT THE HEAT NEEDS
