I heard Ira on the radio yesterday and he stated there are some whispers beginning to pop up comparing Wade to Koby. Let's hope not. What made everyone like Wade other than his game was his refreshing attitude. If he starts coming across like an overbearing Koby that's not good. And while he is not the reason for the Heat's record he clearly commits to many turnovers. This season is over stick a fork in it!

Very true...the sweat gland specialists from across the world are all overjoyed to see Mark Blount finally perspire. It's a miracle!

Riley has always bitten from the fruit that makes him think he's just a deal away from paradise. Problem is...who wants J-Will, Ricky, Smush...or most anyone else? Ever notice these other teams when playing the Heat always play like NBA All-Stars?

Wade looks really bummed out. Probably bought into Riley's pipe dream and his own ego to be convinced to return much too early. Poor Pookie!

This team is ridiculously flawed. It lost its best shooters/perimeter players and received NOTHING in return. There is no continuity and the defense is pitiful. I do not recall past Riley teams giving up 30+ point 4th quarters on a regular basis.

We need a fresh start and we need to start developing players. The playoffs are simply a pipe dream now. We need to start building a basis for next year. Put Shaq on the market and see if a contender wants to trade for him. Take back picks and expiring contracts if possible.

Also, is there a potential scandal on the horizon with some Heat players partying with underage girls? I haven't heard anything until I saw these pics of Haslem and Davis:

Clearly its time to enter a rebuilding phase. We've got Wade, Haslem, Cook, Shaq and Davis, and not much else. Wades not what he was in 2006. Davis is much maligned but he and Haslem have carried this team.

You are a fickle fan and obviously you are no basketball junkie. Blount is the real deal and a hard worker. He is one of the hardest working big men in the game.

Maybe Mr.Arison should hire someone to clean up the mess that patsie has created in heat land.Signing Oneal for such an enormous amount of money was stupid,not trying to get a real starting power foward was silly no offence to Haslem,However depending on such an aging,slow past their prime made absolutely no sense at all.He also let both kapono and posey get away with nothing in return.All this from the so called master mind of basketball,he should be right to cammy and muler on the unemployment line.

Are you kidding or what from the time his big fat chunk of lard came to miami wade has made him look like he had something left.Remember his first year hear we were headed to the finals until shaq diesel got hurt, oops that was wade.However the championship year we were on our way to being swept until shaq got going in game three,oops that was wade again,so i guess you're wrong.

I'm sure Wade is missing Shaq right now.
