<quoted text>The heat are a very good team,they are coherent on the defensive end.The only thing that bugs me is that Dwayne has to bust his ass by himself tryna put this team back to where they were in 06,im not saying the players on the heat are bad,and have no skills,its just that i dont think their appling their self enough,they need to play harder.
The only time i hate Wallace is when he acts a fool,other than that,hes fine.He plays good.
Yeah, ever since Zoe retired the Heat haven't had a really strong defensive player to lock up the inside. J. O'Neal used to be a huge inside presence, but he isn't playing like he did years ago for the Pacers. They don't seem to run particularly hard on defense, and I fault the coaching staff for not getting them to focus more on the defensive side of the ball. If these guys don't want to hustle, make them run until they do. Other teams can get their guys to play hard on D, why is this so hard for the Heat to do (besides D-Wade of course).

I think Jermaine's injuries messed him up,or else he would be playing like he did when he was on the pacers.When you have a strong defensive player like Alonzo,you dont have to worry about the paint,he got it on lock.I doubt it if the heat will ever have a player like Zoe.

He really did so much for the Heat franchise. He was a really nice guy too. I mean, no matter what team you support, you couldn't help but root for a guy like that. There are fewer and fewer classy players in the league anymore, but Zoe was a good one while he played.
