I love it how Quinn gets no credit. He's played solid by leading the 2nd team. Even in Boston, he gave 3 open looks to Jones and Cook. Isn't the Heat's winning percentage around 62% when Quinn has played 15 or more minutes?

Are you kidding me Ted? It doesn't matter what Quinn does on offense because he can't defend a freaking chair. Every single time he gets in the game, he either gets blown by or he ends up with 2-3 quick fouls.

You know the thing about the heat is that they draft players that they don't need. One knock on riley is that the guy cannot draft. FOr example you draft the dorrell wright when you could have drafted jameer nelson? Then you don't play the guy. There are alot of players the heat missed on because of this reason. Now you got this with beasley... If the heat were smart they could have traded down and gotten both mayo and kevin love. Then you would be left with getting dorell wright healthy. That would be a good future. But this team does not know how to develope young talent. DOn't say wade cause that guy is one big exception. I think the heat should just do all of us a favor and stop drafting. Just trade the picks for veterans. Then on top of it you got dumb sport writers writing about character issues with a 19year future star. Idiots!(no offense to you ira). I'm sick of this! I'm giving this dumb coach one more year then i'm jumping ship to orlando cause in my opinion in 2010 wade is heading there. You heard here first people. Wade to orlando to rejoin the coach that made it possible for him.

John, I'd say you're wrong about Beasley. He is well worth our first round pick...coming into his own now. I'm very excited about the future with this young stud. Moreover, Wade would rather go overseas before going to Orlando. Yeah, right. He is staying right here in MIA...believe that.

Trade the whole team and build around Mark Blount. He is the soul and talent on this team. Get a couple of draft picks for DWade. His time has come and gone....

'Are you kidding me Ted? It doesn't matter what Quinn does on offense because he can't defend a freaking chair. Every single time he gets in the game, he either gets blown by or he ends up with 2-3 quick fouls'

Luther Head was the 2-3 quick foul person not Quinn. The 2nd unit w/out Wade looked bad v. Knicks. Quinn is needed but not respected. Also, Chalmers is better defender but hasn't he been torched by most point guards since All-Star break? At least Quinn can bring a more steady shot with little to no TOs when Chalmers is struggling.
