...at trade deadline. Again, getting rid of Shaq's contract makes for a salvagable future only IF Riley can get a great draft choice plus another stud together with Marion (if he wants to stay)to surround Wade with. Wade simply cannot carry a NBA team - sorry- not possible.

I would just like to see what his stat would be if he could get as many minutes as Ricky or Jwill every night. And not have to worry about being yank from the game and banish to the bench until the next injury forces rileys hand.

I just do not want Riley anyway near a top pick. Riley, like shaq is chasing his legacy at the expense of his players.

The bad thing is that the guy he will appoint to replace him will not do any better UNLESS he is allowed to play his own style of bball.

Macadoo a hall of fame player is relagated to keeping stats, while "lil eric" gets the nod.

D.Cook was top 10 in the rookie rankings in the first 3 months of the season. He was #5 for a few weeks. Daequan is a great young player that just needs some experience. In a few years Daeqaun can be an all-star. Riley needs to take his head out of his ass and play him again. The season is over as far as the playoffs concern, so whats the point of sending Daequan to the d-league???? It's stupid. There's no better eperience other than NBA action. The d-league will do nothing for Daequan other than show taht he can score 20 a game on the minor league level. The bottom line is Daequan Cook should be playing for the Miami Heat not the d-league.

I know where minutes could become available for Cook...bench Ricky "I never learned how to pass the ball" Davis. There's probably a 99% chance he won't be there next year and he isn't even productive while he's on the floor. Every rookie goes through a slump, he just has to play through it. If Riley believes in people getting demoted in times when they are struggling, then maybe HE should be demoted to assistant coach, or water boy.

Okay so Cook goes to D-League, right? But Heat still is losing games,why? Let's start with poor defense, no team play, old players,a head coach who is stuck in L.A mentally, oh yea no Shaq. But there's still a problem Coach has of playing young players (check his record).When a team is losing a player tends not to be at his best, ask Wade and Shaq.When a team is winning everyone is on top of his game, ask Wade or Shaq. This team problem when they moved out players that brought energy and points to the game. The one guy who is hurt by Coach not thought out moves is Shawn marion who should had went to a western team. Miami is hurting from the head office down to it's players,and I don't mean Cook. Cook is a rookie and will have good days and bad days from learning pro basketball. Coach is a proven Coach with a great track record who should know by now the pro basketball in's and out's. Everyone on that team need to do a self assessment of how they can bring it every night. Do you play Cook more, I don't know. Is Cook ready for NBA,yes.Do Cook need a Coach that can coach his abilities,yes and that would be a coach like Phil Jackson who seem to let his players and teams play through their down strectes. My granny would say, "don't blame the meal for being bad, blame the cook." No pun intented! We must blame Coach for Cook's play and the Heats slide this season.
