You watch...Davis will fit. Just think - you'll need to blink at times..."is that Latrell Spreewell in his prime" and just what if D-Wright morphs into some kind of T-Mac clone! To sleep...perchance to dream...

When Wade returns, most likely we will see the following starting 5:
J. Will, Wade, Ud. Haslem, Shaq, R. Davis. The haters can talk, but I believe that this team can beat even Boston and San Antonio. The problem is the bench, which is kinda slim (now that Walker was traded...lol!)Also, the number of 3 point makers for the Heat went down. Even so, the Heat can win at least 41 games if everyone remains healthy.

Slim bench? You're obviously forgetting the best sixth man in the league, none other than the magnificent Chris Quinn!

Walker was a heavy load, thank g-d Riley was finally able to unload him. Davis is what the team needed.

For Riley to have said that he made a mistake in trading Ricky is very rare and bold...for he hardly makes mistakes as the president role. Nevertheless, I can envision this team winning 40+ games even with Wade and Shaq missing out games...
the first games of the season (with Wade out) are really challenging, and Miami would have a hard time beating those teams with or w/o Wade. When Wade comes back, the schedule would be much easier and hopefully Davis would have integrated himself into Riley's system by then.

Poor Heat! They'll be in bad health throughout the season, Shaque will miss half of the games ailing and giving big promises, Wade will realize that for years to come he'll be a lonely soldier... One championship and many years of agony and lost direction...

shaq promised a championship to the heat the heat have that shaq will hold down the fort until wade gets back and heat will be fine last year everyone was hurt i think people forget about that had they ben healthy they might have 2 championships because i know heat would have beat the cavs. so say what you want but wait and see the heat will be in the finals.

I think that was a good ,ove by Riley to pick up Davis and Blount they lost a good portion of the little talent that was on the team last season. They picked up to solid players one to fill in for Wade for now then move to the 3. The other will most definitly be playing a good portion of the season for Shaq so it works out. Plus Walker is a bum!
