I knew they wouldn't be able to maintain that fast start. They don't have enough depth on that roster. Plus Shaq didn't come to play. When D-Wade gets health neither the lack of depth nor lazy Shaq would nolonger matter. And thats guranteed by sheed and that patch on his head

So, we have also great mediocrity in the area of professional basketball. Will there be any good teams here in what is left of the 21st Century.

We used to be a city of nice teams, some champions, even University of Miami baseball was pretty good. Even the Boynton Beach Little League team went to the Little League World Series.

do role players need to help Shaq and Wade all the time. Those two get paid 35 milliion dollars. Put any two players in the league who get paid like that in Heat in place of Shaq and Wade, Heat have instant championship team. Even today, the other players played better than Pistons, except Shaq. Quit talking about Heat needing more help for Shaq and Wade. It's about time Shaq and Wade start helping the other 13 players. Get real. Think of any team, including San Antoni and Dallas, and take out their two best players with 35 million salary...they would be a trash. If San Anotoni has Duncan playing like Shaq and parker out...they would be horrible. Take a look at that squad without them two. There is no way to fix this thing except Shaq and Wade have to play like they get paid...because in NBA...they have hard CAP. You only have certain amount of money to spend.

you know why he is keep getting dumb fouls? It's because he is just standing around and reaching in and reacting too late because he is lazy. He is way too old. Any athlete has to work harder as they get older, but this guy is too arrogant to do that.

the other players get 30 million dollar all together and they put up 70 points 30 rebounds and 20 assists....while Shaq and Wade with 35 million dollars put out 9 points and 7 rebounds.....tell me where is the problem and who bears the responsibility and where it needs fixing. If wade and shaq can't be fixed, Heat cannot be fixed. It's simple as that because they they up 35 million dollars of salary. You can wish this and that. Traded for this and that...but the bottom line is if they don't get the dividends from that 35 million dollar a year investment, they are going to suck. That would be the case for any team. If they have 35 million dollars sitting out and putting up 9 points and 7 rebounds, how do you make that up? You just can't.

how do you get another great player that demands 15mil or over when two of your players take up 35 million dollars...you do the math...there is nothing Heat can do...except get the refund on 35 million dollars a year investment. That is the make and break in NBA...your top players make the difference, as in Duncan/Parker....Ming/Grady... .Williams/Boozer....Nash/Stoud mire....Kidd/Carter.....Howard /Lewis...Garnett/Pierce....Tho se combinations produce 50 points/20 rebounds/15 assists every game compared to 10points and 7 rebounds Miami gets from its duo of Shaq/Wade...I would say Miami's role players of williams/davis/mourning/haslem /blount is better than most of these teams...So, the real problem that needs fixing is Shaq and Wade have to produce, there is no way of getting around that..because in NBA...Stars win and the number of stars you can have is limited by HARD CAP.
