Derrick Rose may be the best option for this teams pick, we have to make sure that three other teams don't need a point guard. I'd love to have beasly, but we already have a beasly type.

I agree Derrick Rose is what Miami needs but when did they ever win a lottery? Micheal Beasley will be a player in the NBA but who knows how good of one?
Miami needs a point guard and with Wade and Rose just think of the potential.

We can only acquire next season's boon
if we get rid of this bad concoction of a
team. DWade should not only be the
main ingredient but should be all of them.
Pat, prove to us that u deserve the Hall of

Give us a great future

TRADE RILEY TO A JR HIGH SCOOL administrative position.

He can't even coach at any level. He is as "useful" as SO'Neil----high salary--NO WINS

"i din't know cacti could speak"
"Please fired Riley."
"He can't even coach at any level."

Why do posters to this board have such poor grammar? Do they not read their comments before hitting the submit button? Do the majority of Heat fans simply have the grammatical skills of D. Wade? Is it due to the fact that English is their second language? I think it is probably due to the fact that anyone, including myself, who is still following the Heat at this point of the season must be an idiot!

Can you all imagine Rose Wade and Marion, and haslem and zo(for a bit) But we have youth now, Cook and DWRIGHT would still be in college this year, meaning they still have time to blossom. All young stars, D COOK would have been a lottery pick ths year had he stayed at OSU, so, basically we have 2 lottery picks this year. and D wright can be a solid 6th man, or if haslem is traded for brand or jermain onell,. wright can be our SF with Marion at PF, Imagine Rose Wade Wrighr Marion and Oneil? Riley wants worse to 1st in 1 year, thats what hes going after----------next month in may, we now know who we will get. We are good at 1 or 2 in the lottery.

BJR How can you say screwed and we need a PF?????Look at Paul Dwilliams in utah and nash, what they have done for their teams, Baron Davis, etc, its a guard orientated league now, and Marion averages a Double Double------Jermain Oneil wants out, and I guarantee you riley sends haslem and davis/williams in some sign and trade, with D Rose, we are back

LETS Not forget, a healthy dwade marion, haslem, zo, wright and cook are a playoff team if you add the lottery pick and resign ricky, even if we did not do anything else, Dwade and Marion is a great team, DWADE wasnt dwade this year, dont forget that/. Wade odom and caron went to the east semis, wade marion haslem davis cook wright and zo, can at least do that, Plus a lottery pick. AND <riles will make 1 splazsh, we tanked the season, and we needed to.
