Four games into the exhibition season, has the Heat been reduced to gimmicks? Saturday's 100-92 loss to the Magic in Jacksonville sure made it seem that way.

Like I've said from the moment they drafted M. Beasley, they need to trade Haslem and Blount and get a GOOD center. Until this is done we aren't going anywhere.

Maybe riley can work up a "Wildcat" package to find an offensive gimmick. We are stuck with the oldest of sports adages here. "All things being equal, a good BIG man will beat a good SMALL man...every time."

Real simple. Trade Marion...dump Blount and go get a center. That'll clear up the rotation problem... or else say hello to the lottery.

remember when magic played center when they needed him in the nba finals?

Quinn can play the post if we really need him there.

Gotta find a place for him in the finals.

The best position for Chris Quinn is on the far end of the bench actually. But seeing him play center against Shaq would be entertaining.
