Right now you have to work around Shaq. With D-Wade out, Shaq's gotta be the first option. He aint 100%, but hes the best they have. Im from Kentucky and I love the Heat, but Antione cant do it. Posey cant do it. Eddie cant either. J-Will can help, Zo can help, but Shaq has gotta be the top gun. Without the Diesel rite now, Miami would not make the playoffs.

If Riley were a republican, he would charge full steam ahead and rally the troops and be playoff bound. If he wants to retreat, pretend like he wants to win, act like he supports the troops, I mean players, then we will again know who he votes for.

I'm not totally sure of my stats here but last year in the finals I think the heat were down to the maverics 2-0 and were definately not a favorite to win. Not only did the heat end up winning the finals but they won it in 6 games. The biggest reason why they won was because of Pat Riely bringing the heat together and helping them to win as a team. I don't think that people can really question Pat Riely much if they look at his track record and how he's done with some of his past teams. Out of all the coaches in basketball I think Pat Riely's number one. Criticize him all you want but he knows what he's doing.
