OK, so we take UD and his 8 - 10 points and let Beas sit ! I guess Spo doesn't want to win and make Riely look bad! Soooo we made the playoffs and I guess he is happy with that and has something to build on next year when he tries to win a few playoff games!

how we do in the playoffs is comming down to how Dwade plays period...Udonis, Beasley, who sits, who starts, rookie coach..non of that matters...if Dwade plays well, we win the series, if he doesn't, we lose..point blank end of conversation...so I don't wanna hear anymore about this rookie BS, i thought you were an old pro?

The regular season is over and you still don't have a set lineup. That's how you know your team is not complete. There should be no questions as to who plays what position at this point in the year.

FIRE SPO, HE IS A MORON. Sit our second best player who is on a tear, great for his confidence, production and most importantly future development for a mediocre player who has 6 stitches on his hand. SPO SUCKS.

I agree fire spo , he is a joke , this strarti g five has no fire power ,
He. Must play Beasly or wade will have to carry the load all by himself ,
He should play chris more since chalmers can't score .

mario might not be a good scorer, but if you play quinn on bibby, bibby will single handedly win the series for the hawks!

Well if you don't want to hear it, the on off switch is on your computer! When I played, I played on a TEAM and one guy usually needed help! The sport is a team sport, not bowling!

If he doest start Beasley and we lose the series cuz of it and fall into double-digit first quarter deficits every game than Spo deserves to get fired

he's done a great job on 85% of the things but this is too big a screw-up to overlook, this is the PLAYOFFS to COMPETE FOR A CHAMPIONSHIP

which means playing your best players and the goal being to win, but it seems spo's goal is "Dont hurt Udonis Haslem's feelings"

and it would really help Wade's game to have Beasley out there

and make it alot easier for our other weapons Oneal and Chalmers and Cook,, not to mention all our shooters and hustle guys/offensive rebounders

You know this shouldn't be difficult. I'm not saying this in reference to the series but i'm speaking on the decision that has to be made with this lineup. The hawks will have a hard time against beasley and wade in the lineup. Like the previous comments, there is no way that the hawks can cover beasley and wade. It's like covering wade and duncan. The heat need to realize that they have special talent in this kid. You couldn't have asked for a better pick. This thing has never been about his inability to play defense. That's the dumbest excuse i've ever heard to not play that kind of a talent, because every rookie has struggles in defense. but not every rookie can score and rebound. You will not find another big that can score inside or outside and rebound. The reason for not playing beasley is simply out of the respect this orginization haslem. with that being said this staff has nothing owed to O'neal. So why not bench O'neal and start haslem at center. If you have a haslem, beasley, moon, wade chalmers, You haves a good core that can compete against the hawks. Otherwise i just think the hawks are too balanced as a team. We will not have a chance beat them without beasley in the lineup.

i agree with most of this...but the biggest weakness of the hawks, is their bench...

flip murray, maurice evans and zaza pachulia, and after that, they have nothing...

if you take beasley off the bench, then the two benches are even, if not tilted in favor of the hawks....i think they leave the starting lineup as is, and just play beasley more in crunch time, and if you have him play SF at the end of games, he might not be a good defender, but marvin williams is not a versatile scorer.

What an absolute croc of crap. Somebody needs to "clue" Spoelstra in. Let's be real here, in reality, he's nothing more than Riley's figurehead bench dummy anyway...
