Heat:Riley downplays 3-pointers, looks to complement Wade with facsimile player

There are 12 comments on the South Florida Sun-Sentinel story from Jul 7, 2007, titled Heat:Riley downplays 3-pointers, looks to complement Wade with facsimile player. In it, South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that:

“I'm not going to overpay a player and give them the mid-level if they're not worth the mid-level because we feel pressure to use the mid-level.”

Three-point shooting is so 2006-07.

After the Heat ranked eighth in the NBA in 3-point attempts but only 27th in 3-point percentage last season, coach Pat Riley said Friday his offseason focus is on more athletic, versatile players.

The approach already has led to Jason Kapono's free-agent departure to the Toronto Raptors, and Riley, addressing the media for the first time since the start of the NBA's free-agent negotiation period, indicated forward James Posey could be next to go.

While Riley accepts that there is not another Dwyane Wade available on the market, he believes it is unfair to Wade not to pair him with a player with similar skills. Read more

Typical yankee answer. Too bad a Canadian invented your game A$$wipe. Your centre is now too fat and washed up. Your coach is washed up .sad when he still sports the brylcream, Alonzois beaten up and kidneyless,payton is as old as the stars. Your team is on its way down. too bad they didn't play the Spurs last year. Cause fatman shaq and cry baby wade would not have won.

Believe me idiot, we stole your American Colanangelo and packed the team with real players,EUROPEANS. Simply because one American was smart enough to sse that US players are on thier way out in being true players.All they see is bling and arrogance like your sorry a$$ self. Post when you have sensible things to say you arrogant prick.
