Riley may have put them together, but that doesn't mean they will put forth the effort, sad when you look at Shaq as an example - $20 mill this season and for the next 2 seasons - $60 mil for a guy that can't play anymore and doesn't help this team one iota. Keep Wade and Haslem and dump the rest of the team and get some players that want to EARN those million dollar salaries.

Riley absolutely needs to leave. He's has cursed the heat franchise ever since he stepped foot here in Miami.

To do what concentrate on the draft? You mean like drafting Wayne Simien at #29 when he could have drafted David Lee at #30, Ronnie Turiaf at #37 or Montae Ellis at #40. How about drafting Dorell Wright at #19 when he could have drafted Jameer Nelson at #20, Kevin Martin at #26 or Anderson Varejao at #30? You mean like wanting to draft Chris Kaman instead of Dwayne Wade before he was talked out of it by the scouts? If that's the focus he's bringing to the draft we may not want him involved in evaluating and drafting players.
ouch, this was a good post.
