You both are idiot's. Riley is the best thing to happen to basketball in South Florida. Like you guys have a clue. Look at Riley's record, he is going into the hall of fame and yet you guys think you know how to get things done. Riley is the best. He will work his magic as a GM and the Heat will be a team to contend with.

all three of you are idiots. Riley is not an idiot and not the best thing either. he destroyed the exciting cohesive Anthony Mason et al team by throwing Zo in as the focus as soon as he was able to play instead of using him as a supersub. ditto for the 2006 team which became cohesive without Wade and then was thrown off kilter by throwing Wade back in for playoffs as the focus when he wasn't 100% healthy,instead of using him as a supersub. result: both teams collapsed in playoffs.

Riley wanted to draft tjFord, not wade..he let Posey go to Celts which
gives them a dynasty we can't crack.
and there's the shaq trade,
which made us lose van gundy as well
as odom/butler. we'll never know if just bolstering that team may have given us a championship without shaq, and a better future. so we can't know for sure if it was a great move or not, but he has made some great moves (dumping Shaq is one) and is on the whole more an asset than a liability.

i don't think Riley is any good at the draft and he knows it...that's why he prefers to draft for vets.

in my opinion if Chi takes Rose we MUST draft and keep Beasley. he will be a star for years to come. maybe even a superstar..but a star is enough.

however, if Chi takes him, we should trade Rose to get Mayo and other benefits.

you must be a complete idiot if you have a team with all young players you know what you will win a lottery pick thats what they will get. you need veterans to teacher the young players what to do . moron!!!!!!!!!! you need to give up being a heat fan now we don't need idiots for fans. Pat will be in the hall of fame will you be there NNNNOOOOOOO. he is there for a reason he knows what he is doing.

first of all honestly riley did wanted to draft Chris Kaman not ford. i don't know why people like wade so much i am a heat fan and i don't like him that much. he is ok. he does not have a good shot and he carries a lot. and anthony mason was garbage. Zo was the best thing that happened to the heat.
