I am a die hard heat fan. I know all their strengths and limitations. Walker by far is a player that make you cringe every time that he touches the ball because he is doing one of two things, He is either traveling or missing three's badly, but I must say that he does come through when it counts. As much as walker scares me, I still understand that he is one of three players on the Heat that can create his own shot. Now if he makes them on a consistent basis is a different story? I like Gary Payton because he still plays great D. Yes he does commit stupid fouls from time to time, but you have to take the good with the bad. Payton usually makes sound decisions on the offense of end. How little that we forgot how instrumental that he was in the heats championship victory last year, so give Payton a break. He is the oldest player in the NBA probably and he is defending players that are in their twenties on a consistent basis. If that is not impressive, I do not know what is. Eddie Jones was a good addition to the heat because he plays his role very well. We have to understand what is happening with the Heat at this moment. The Heat is playing well without Wade at this point. Now imagine when the heat gets Wade back and if Jason Kapono get his groove back. The heat will be unstoppable. Not even the Mavs stand a chance if the Wade and Kapono rejoins the heat and plays at their peak level. Yes I said it and I will take it a step further. No one in the east or the west will stand a chance.

I'm just curious. Does anyone else think 'Toine must be blowing Riles to get so much playing time all the time. I mean, yes, ON THE RARE, RARE BEING THE KEY WORD, OCCASION, he can have a DECENT game where his points and contributions outweigh his many completely boneheaded plays. But seriously, HOW IS THIS BUM GETTING SO MUCH PLAYING TIME.

My bet, he's slobberin' on Riles knob like there's no tomorrow. Amaechi would be

And another thing. I've said it a dozen times, for many years. RILES is one of the WORST IN-GAME coaches there is. This man just can't seem to realize quick enough that some of the rotations he throws out there just don't work. Of course, considering the fact he's so in love with two OLD BUMS like 'Toine and Payton, that's not surprising.

Halftime, and the Heat are only up by 11 in a game that, if it had been well-coached by Riley, they'd be up by 25 in.

I can't wait till Riles retires again. Here's friggin' hoping it's at the end of this season. It's just a shame he'll still be the President of our franchise. And here's hoping he takes those two bums Payton and 'Toine with them when he goes.

How prophetic Riley's words turn out to be in the light of the Heat's back-to-back win and their 9th. succesive.
