I'm extremely happy for Livingston. I hoped the Heat would acquire him, and he'd be able to help this team. Hopefully were gonna see him more--he brings a lot to the table that we lack in the backcourt at the point guard spot. He's an elite lead guard. When was the last time a Heat PG got a block? This kid is our best option, I just pray he'll be ready by 10/29. We need this guy to remove all ball handling away from Wade, so that he can play off the ball like in Beijing. Big Ups to Shaun for his mental recovery--to his physical recovery. Our team needs you----

I'm very glad he was able to to play his first game with the HEAT. We can't expect him to contribute right away. Rememebr he is not playign 100% because in his mind there is still the fear of the injury so he is not only trying to get the rust off, but he must also get back his confidence. There's a big difference between playing with your teammates, and playing against the competition.

What a fairytale come true this would be if he and Wade were to form an awesome backcourt. The heat seems to do well with cast off's from the clips look at ODOM he was at his best when with the heat.

I hope Shaun can get back to his days with the Clips'. I was on his sight and he is a class person as well as a top notch guard, that the heat sorely need. Livingston, Wade, Marion, Beasley, with Has or Zo would be enough to get a 6th seed.

This article sure is swell! Jeepers, its good to see a young Shaun Livingston running and jumping like a school boy at recess! I sure hope he has a good season, goodness knows he worked for it! His potential is as high as his wiry body! A 6'7" point guard! Holy cow! What an advantage! Also, he can learn from seasoned, respected point guards like Chris Quinn and Marcus Banks! He also has some ultra talented teammates like Joel Anthony and Mark Blount anchoring the team! And what an established coach in Eric Spoelstra! What a squad! Good luck, fellas! We'll have an even better season than last year!

I take it you are a orlandoho fan. It is funny, but true and it hurts. Injuries suck for everyone ball is so fun, yet so cruel.

And gollie, the beave and lumpy are gonna try for 10 day contracts during this year.

I ran into Shaun today during lunch and he was a super down to earth guy. I rememebr meeting shaq and he had a bad attitude but livingston is truly a sincere person and excellent point guard. I can envision the backcourt of him and wade dominating the east and winning back to back championships. This guy is the real deal and a steal for real. Most people would have given up after an injury like that but he persisted and it will pay off big time. GO HEAT!
