I getting tired of teams passing Penny around like a bad step child. They need to stick with there original agreement and give this man a chance to rebuild himself. This man was injured a great time in his career. But don't just give up on him. And that's what all these teams keep doing. He injured himself back with the Magic trying to keep that team alive after Shaq left, playing thru the injury. And once again he might be placed on the trading block. He needs to know that when a team picks him up that he won't be traded off at the drop of a dime. What the heat needs to do is give their star players a pay cut since they want to play like they don't care. But for Penny he's has alot to play for, but he needs a team to help build him back up. I'm in the Army and when a soldier is hurt or wounded, we don't just leave them out there to die just because the can't do their job to the fullest. We come home and help them rebuild, so they can keep doing their job. Our modo is "Army Strong", we've all seen it either on TV or in a Magazine, how about we do this, "NBA Strong".

As for Shaq, Riley is just hiding him at the moment waiting for the right moment to unleash him. Shaq's injury prone especially towards the end of the season. Keeping him away from the attention of opposing teams' rough and tough defense will avoid those unnecessary and hard contacts that will cause him some injuries.

who would take Fat Shaq in a trade for $20 mil. Not gonna happen unless he starts insulting the coach and the owner, and starts to cry he is not appreciated. Even then, you have to find a taker.

best bet is to try and trade wade. he is the only one that has any value and the way he plays, he will be a shadow of himself before 26 years old. maybe the sonics would move durant since he is taking alot of heat for not winning. the guy has shown he can score, wait until he starts to mature. monster!

Riley's time has passed. Rather than getting better it is getting worse. This team is in a death spiral. We would have been better off with Stan Van G. Any chance of landing Billy Donovan next year?

you are right, wade will be 26 in a month. but i think durant would be a better future for the heat if they can steal him for wade. this team has got to rebuild.

if Shaq can't get his ego in check soon, and if wade can't get healthy soon. this season is a waste, and it won't be any better next year since mourning is gone.

wade can't do it alone. he doesn't make his teammates around him better, like say a steve nash or a deron williams.

because his teammates would rather stand around and watch him make plays... can't make them better if they aren't willing to move without the ball!

Trade Wade and dump Shaq, are you guys crazy? What we need is another shooter and a replacement for JWills.

Nobody in their right mind would trade Wade, unless he played for the Marlins.

Will someone tell Riley to sit Davis's ass! The guy plays NO DEFENSE! Now that Wright seems to have found himself (We Hope) Davis should not get more time then Wright. If nothing else Wright will play defense!
