This year is going to end quickly if we dont make some changes in the way we play and the starting line up. Here are some thoughts for you Coach SPO. 1. What ever happen to that motion offense you were going to put in place ? All this standing around is making way to easy to defend us.2.Lets face it that line up of Rio, Dwade, Ud, and JO, Diawara /JJ/Moon Isnt the answer you start the game with that combination and we fall behind are you insane because someone who continues doing the same thing and expects different results is considered CRAZY! 3.And stop Play UD at center he is barely a power forward its stupid and ridiculous .
4.Iam going to help you out Try this line up and and lets move the ball MOTION OFFENSE!
DWADE pg
Dcook sg
Dorellw sf
Beasley PF
Jermaine C
Your only going to play 9, Bring in Rio move Dwade to sg
and UD at power and jamal , and Moon or JJ as needed but not all at once you have to keep the Hot players in and get as big as a lead as you can. Remember these guys are in great shape right Now. GO HEAT!!!!!!

Diawara is not ready to be a starter i suggest he comes off the bench he is a really good defender but i say that the forward spot should go to james jones or daequan cook

thats not your problem coach watch the tape no ones going to the goal but wade somtimes beasley. everybody wants to shoot three's try telling these so called prof.athletes to set better screens and be the aggressors start fouling hard ya'll have no identity.Thier actually thinking they have won somthing u gotta change that D awara stay extra late you and moon Beasly your 6 10 get in the weight room son! and stop fading on the j and that ''jordan jab step it's old bra''. catch and shoot or drive read the d know what you want and go just relax 40 plus games you in thier now.

Good luck with JO at center. As you saw yesterday, thats not the position for him. Soon he will be crying and will be "hurt" yet again.
He's an overachieving Kwame Brown, that happened to have a good team around him when healthy.

Here we go. problem is no one's play the game cutting to the hoop or rebounding everybody needs to work on that have postional drills who too lock out and at what spots being a gaurd gettin between a forward every one needs too rebound.Next jermaine i love ya but u need to come off the bench for now heat played better D and harder cause of the lack of height then bring Oneal in the rotation moon is a better fit starting at small forward.
