The Heat may win 25 games over weaker opponents but will lose the rest of their schedule to the class of the NBA.

Riley, don't wear out Wade ........wait til next season to get quality players..........

The Shaq Attack is ancient history.........let him become a cop already !

I was waiting for the NBA anal-cist to say it was all Chris Quinn.

Well, Quinn has no ego, he always defers to the better players around him, he commits no turnovers, he doesn't back the ball up court, and he plays good defense. Plus, that pass to wade on the break was really nice. Props.

This line up could really be what gets us into the playoffs.

Of course if Smush can do those things, he might get the job. He plays better defense than quinn and can jump about 2 feet higher.

The Heat still stink. They beat a mediocre (at best) team. Did you see what Dwight Howard did to Shaq-Fu? Still not convinced Wade is 100% healthy with that knee. At best the Heat make the playoffs as an 8 seed.

I was at the game and in all the years I have watched the Heat that had to be one of the top 3 games I have seen them play. They passed well, shot well, got back on defense, overall great game. hopefully they can keep it up and if they do they could make a nice run to the playoffs.

And the rookie Cook was very impressive.

The Heat are a bad team....there is nothing wrong with admitting it. They traded their entire future for a ring 2 years ago. At the time I believed it was a terrible move but it has since paid off when a ring so congrats! If Dirk could hit a free throw down the stretch we wouldn't be having this conversation. So South Florida you sold your soul to the devil and now you have to pay. The first sale was the snake of a coach that you have....leaving the Knicks the way he did. Getting rid of Van Gundy....It was such a pleasure watching the 8th seed knock you guys out year after year. The second part of the soul selling was Shaq. Now you have a giant in the center that can't move and who the refs are finally getting the calls correct. He charges more than anyone has ever in the the history of basketball. Now if the refs would stop calling all the B/S and phantom foul calls Wade gets and start calling the carry on his right to left crossover the world would balance out. Sorry to tell you Miami Heat Lovers the best team in Florida is in Orlando.

I think that this is just a quick fix to a problem that the Heat is going to have to eventually solve, because face it the Shaq, Haslem, Penny, Wade, and Quinn is not going to get it later down the road when it comes to the playoffs. Pat Riley is going to have to address a trade and get a free agent point guard like Miller or whoever else is available. I say trade Haslem, Wright... for a good point guard. Anyone can rebound the ball like Haslem

I would keep JW and Davis in the second unit. First of all, JW can't match up with top point guards in the league. Secondly, he is dominated by Wades on the first unit. Third, he can be himself with the unit...run the team and have the ball in his hands. Davis, we just need his offense on the second unit and he can have more touches. So, it's a good change for the second unit. But, we still need a better option than Hardaway at small forward. We are small with Haslem, Hardaway, and Wade. I would rather see athletic big guy who can defend even if he doesn't score much...a la Bowen who averages only about 5 points a game. Hardaway only averages 4points a game anyway. Dorrell might fill that role. Otherwise, get that rebounding, defending, atheletic guy. What is Hardaway doing? He is a good facilitator, but we need some rebounds, defense, and size. Quinn might just fit in since he doesn not demand the ball and plays solid defense. Anyway that was a good move because Wade and Shaq dominates the ball so much. They need other role players with them who do not need the ball to be effective role players. They need rebounders, facilitators, and defenders with Shaq and Wade. That's what they got with Duncan and Parker. Piston is a little different because they have all five guys who can play but don't need the ball all the time to be effective. Good move Riles...and about time.

And Cook is definitely a player...but it's better for him to come off the bench than start because he plays the same position as Wade and Cook is way too small for a forward and he isn't a point guard....and Wade does not want to be a full time point guard. Unless Cook can bring the ball up court and pass like a point guard...he isn't goint to be in the starting five. later, if they got some size in other positions, we mignt be able to give up a few inches from the small forward spot. But this team is way too small at every position...small and slow. I like cook, williams, davis from the second unit. That would match up with any bench.

If "i knew it" actually knew anything, he'd know that smush parker showed his stuff in LA LA land and didn't produce a darn thing. Except turnovers.

Oh yeah, and Chris Quinn, you know, the guy that can't jump, was measured at a 37 inch vertical leap at the nba tryout camp. And that ain't shabby.

Exactly right. But, if they play Cook, they might actually win more then 10 games this year, since he provides the offense they need-move Wade to "point" (get it??) guard, since the others of that position on the current roster are a joke, and Wade is not going to go easy so as to heal properly anyway-he only knows one style of play (physical), and will continue until he is forced to retire due to injury, unlike the true legend, Michael J, who knew how-when to adjust for longevity. Then, the Heat might win enough to get back to the playoffs so they can be embarrassed again (or it least the fans will be-the players have zero pride, as long as they get their guaranteed money-who are they kidding?).
