coach spo suckss bro!!!! he hates beasly!!!! the only way for beasly to learn defense is on the court not on the bench. and in many game spo put beas and wade on the bench at the same time and the offense become stagnant why? wade and beas are the only two players who can create their own shots and create for other and he prefers to put 5 jump shooters at the same time is just stupid. riley please fire spoelstra

Beasley WILL be fine. It's called tough love. What he brings on the offensive end is more than adequate but he needs to become more of a tougher presence on D. He'll eventually get it with time and physical strength. If the Heat had an extremely physical force in the middle that could maybe cover for his defense now...but currently they don't.

I agree with you a 100% Luis. Coach needs to let Beasley develop. There is no reason why he should be averaging less than 20 points a game.

yea the heat has to do something before these real big matchups come they need to go ahead and get antonio mcdyess to fill that role because a majority of our losses has come from us not having a big in the middle udonis and micheal beasley cant play these larger guys we need help and fast! but of course i still got faith in my heat

You seem to forget the obvious. Pat Riley does not play rookies period. Miami's starting lineup with him would likely be Banks/Wade/Marion/Haslem/Bloun t.

Who wants to see Chris Quinn starting at center against Shaq? That would be wirth the price of admission.

Shaq could even free style rap about it afterwards.

The Heats have one good "Big Man" Joel Anthony and Spo using Cook to defend 7 footer?

Maybe should try Beasley at the 3, maybe he can guard opposing SF better than PF. I agree he needs to improve his D, but can the Heat really afford to keep this guy out of the lineup when the team NEEDS his buckets....

Spo is using the right method by playing hard ball trying to motivate the rookie into diggin in on that end. He just needs to play with an EDGE or CHIP like Wade tonite. I've seen what he can do when he's angry. Its all about energy

The Heat needs to talk with the blazers they are 10-12 deep with at least 2/3 players at every position. I mean their bigs are crazy, Oden, Pryz, Frye, Aldridge, LaFrentz, Diogu.. They want a veteran player to compliment their young guys, a leader who bring them all together..

Sounds like UD to me, could we get Pryz for UD? Or would it take a lot more to get their play maker Sergio, Outlaw, and Pryz for say Marion? Though, I'd rather hold off on a trade until we get a chance to see how Magloire, Jones, & Zo fit with this team. I think were plus .500 with a full roster...Though if we lose 3-4 straight games we may not have the luxury to wait til they recoup.....
