Yao Ming too tall of an order for Miami Heat

Full story: South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Erik Spoelstra offered proper perspective just over 90 minutes before the opening tip.

Tough loss despite the spirited effort. Rockets are an elite NBA team - obviously size and depth tipped the scales. Imagine that team playing with Shane Battier who was injured. The Heat are just not at that level yet. Chalmers was great, Beasley played much better, and Marion's versatile game is amazing along with all the quirks. As I've been saying, playing time for Anthony is a must - he's getting better by the minute. Sure hope something pops soon to pick up some legit post player help. The physical drain to cover these opposing bigs is already showing. Getting Jones back for a more consistent outside shot will surely help.

Chalmers played like a man, Wade was in it, and everyone else gave help on defense. Why cant we get a mop up center for the NBA minimum? Padgett would have at least made Yao work for the points and rebounds. Whats up coach? You can not fake size and hope that the other teams wont notice. Especially on a west coast swing. They play small and tall ball well. Riley and his group of cronies need to get a body on the floor to bang away at these bigger guys until we get a legitimate solution for this team. The rest of the pieces are starting to gel and realize their potential. Do not waste this momentum with a 6'8" center. Get it done!!!

I see Wdae getting tired, Udonis can play against these guys but look at the easy shots Mr. Bigger has. It's just asking too much. However, we can win that has been proven, but we can not be elite in small ball. At least get Anthony on the floor more. Let Udonis rotate to PF more. Oh well, I am still excited to see the guys play hard, we are much better than last year, and lots to look forward to.

GO HEAT!!!

Yeah you guys definitely need a center. Haslem was pretty much abused my Yao last night. Your younger guys (Beasley and especially Chalmers) are going to be lighting the NBA up for years to come but not this year. You guys aint ready yet unless you make a trade for a center. Until then keep looking up to teams like the Rockets....

The Heat dont need a 8ft center they just need some besides Dwayne Wade that can score more than 20 points per game and they dont have anyone like that now.

Well we don't have a guard (other than Wade) who can create his own shot and get to the basket and finish in traffic. So why don't we make a trade for Javaris Crittenton. We would have taken him in the draft that year but the Lakers picked him right in front of us. And he is a 6'5" combo gaurd with a lot of upside especially in out uptempo offense?
