I am not really sold on Davies when someone suggested to make a trade even before the deal was done. Even though he has a dubious reputation, I think Reuben Patterson would have been a better fit.

What, exactly, do you think we're still in, Mr Davis?
Last place? Subject of ridicule? Fantasy Land? How can we fix our problems when our team doesn't even realize there is a problem?

Ricky is what he is. You can't fault him for this disasterious season. The whole idea of thinking you can simply surround Wade And Shaq with anybody sure does look bad now.

I still like the trade, as long as it looks like we are lottery bound. If we have the 6th pick that could be disasterous.

Davis has looked good in several games but untimely turnovers has been killing us.

How's Walker doing in Minnesota?

Ricky hasn't failed. He's the second scorer now when he should have been be third option.

Unless he's a locker room pariah then the media should get off his back.

The system is more likely a source of the problem. Even Shaq is more accustomed to a motion offense as played in the triangle system in LA. Too many sets, too much Riley.

Last year was the same thing until Riley left for hip surgery.Ron Rothstein had less sets and more of a running type game. Brought us back in the chase. Same can be said for Stan Van G.

But instead of caling out Riley the cowardly media looks to point fingers at players like Rickey, and Walker. They even tiptoe around Shaq.

Guys. Type your comments, save them and just copy and paste as your next respond under the next article. Everything is going to be the same for the rest of the season. Save your time. It is more valuable then 2007 Heat's season which is already in a toilet, flushed away.....
We must be blind not to see that.

Here is a gift for you. Why not trade Davis, Williams and Parker for Marbury? The money matches up and this is your best hope for a player that is viable in a trade. Given a last chance (and know it is his last chance) Marbury might come to his sense and actually try. Plus, NY is the worst place for this guy to be playing.

It is a gamble, but what is there to lose?

We should try to get Damon Jones and Eddie Jones back. This is the best thing we can do.

Maybe the problem is Ricky is too busy chasing around underage girls?

Blount has 3 years left and Walker two so this article is not factual just more hate by Ira.

Walker's numbers might not be great but he has also had days where he has gone 4-6 and never gotten another shot. Those games in itself could have Walker's numbers up but then again Miami never let him do anything so it would not have mattered in the end.

Miami fans deserve to lose. This is great. Serves the bandwagon fans right. Every single one of you haha

The only good thing about the trade is getting rid of Walker. Davis however needs to look at himself, his shot selection is horrible and he plays no defense. He is not the reason for the bad season, but he hasn't helped.

There are so many problems with this situation but I mostly blame Riley! First look at their daily game plan, it involves the first 8 minutes of the game setting up the half court offense with every other player just standing in their position and tossing it in to Shaq who is a shell of his former self. Then after he goes out, due usually to foul trouble, they finally send in Ricky but then they spend the next 8 minutes with again every player in their position and Dwayne Wade playing one on 2,3,4 take your choice! And then when he finally goes out in the middle of the second quarter they somehow how expect Ricky and all the bench players to just carry the team when they have barely even touched the ball let alone taken a shot!! C'mon Riley stop this isolation crap and start shifting players around and getting everyone involved and god forbid making the other team play a little defense! And would someone please tell me why Haslem plays 40 minutes a game when offensively, he's horrible and defensively he gets beat one on one by every other power forward in the league, I mean besides rebounding why is he even in there?! And while Wade is one of my favorite players his turnovers are killing this team!!

The problem with the heat is
not davis or shaq. I still say he
should have kept the championship team together. He broke it up too soon! If Wade didn't get hurt last
season who knows maybe we would have won it again. I do believe the season
is over though were just sinking slower and slower. But Heatfans remember we did win the championship!
