I HONESTLY DON'T BELIEVE HEAT IS INTERESTED IN AMARE'. NOT WITH BOSH AND LEBRON AVAILABLE SOON UNLESS RILES KNOWS SOMETHING WE DON'T. I'VE SAID THIS BEFORE, RILES WILL NEVER RISK ALIENATING ITS FANS BY TRADING BEAZ. EVEN IF WE DONT GET THE BIG NAMES, THERE'S STILL PLENTY OF OPTIONS TO IMPROVE WITH THE MONEY WE HAVE BY JULY. EXPECT MILD TRADES FOR JONES OR DIARRHEA FOR OTHER SCRUBS WITH SHORT TERM CONTRACTS.
STOP THE CHATTER ABOUT BEAZ! HE'S GOT TALENT AND WILL STAY WITH THE HEAT NO MATTER WHAT. RILEY'S NOT THAT DUMB TO TRADE HIM SEEING HOW A LOT OF YOU GUYS HERE DROOL OVER THE KID. THE REAL PROBLEM IS WONDERBOY CHALMERS. A TRUE SECOND ROUNDER YET MIAMI SEEM OBLIVIOUS TO WHAT THE REST OF THE NBA KNOWS -- CHALMERS IS A THIRD STRING GUARD AT BEST. WE CAN'T TRADE HIM. HE'S GOT NO VALUE. AND THE KID STILL BELIEVES HE SHOULD START!!! BEEN A FAN OF THE NBA SINCE DR J AND I MUST ADMIT, THIS CHALMERS IS ONE OF THE DUMBEST PG I'VE SEEN TO START IN AN NBA TEAM. ONLY IN MIAMI!!! THIS DUMBASS MAKES JJ BAREA LOOK LIKE JOHN STOCKTON. THEY SHOULD CHANGE HIS NAME TO "CLUELESS". SAD PART IS WE MIGHT BE STUCK WITH HIM FOR A AWHILE.
THINGS THAT ARE 100% TRUE: A) RILEY SOLD HIS SOUL TO THE DEVIL FOR 2010 AND WILL NOT MAKE CHANGES TO HARM IT. B) ALSTON IS CHALMERS WITH EXPERIENCE. 3) BEASLEY IS THE MIAMI HEAT. HE BLOWS HOT AND COLD. 4) DWADE IS NOW OFFICIALLY HAVING SECOND THOUGHTS OF STAYING IN MIAMI. 5) J O'NEAL TRIAL RUN IS A MISTAKE. 6) WE ARE THE MOST UN-ATHLETIC TEAM IN THE NBA (NETS SHOULD BE BUT HARRIS WILL BURN ALSTON/CHALMERS ANY DAY AND LOPEZ WILL BE A STAR). 7) SPOELSTRA WILL BE REPLACED. THINGS THAT SHOULD COME TRUE: 1) TRADE J0 AND DIYAWARA FOR T-MAC AND ANDERSEN. WIN-WIN FOR BOTH. I'D RATHER HOPE FOR A T-MAC REVIVAL IN MIAMI THAN CONTINUE HOPING FOR JO TO COME ALIVE. HE'S LOST HIS MOJO YEARS AGO. 2) FOR THE HEAT TO PLAY ARROYO AND LEAVE CHALMERS AS THIRD STRING GUARD. ALL OF US KNOWS THIS. 3) SEND COOK TO CHINA TO PLAY WITH MARBURY! MAYBE HE'LL GET HIS TOUCH BACK THERE. 4) HIRE AVERY JOHNSON AND SPOELSTRA CAN REMAIN AS ASSISTANT. AVERY SHOULD KNOW HOW TO APPRECIATE D-WADE'S STRENGTH SINCE HE TORCHED AVERY'S MAVS. 5) TRADE UD NOW. HE EXEMPLIFIES OUR SLOW-FOOTED DEFENSE.
NICE STORY ON THAT MAYO OVER BEASLEY DEBATE...BUT WHO WOULD GIVE UP ON BEASLEY? I WON'T. SAD TO SAY BUT THE GRIZZLIES HAVE MORE TALENT THAN THE HEAT AS IT IS. OURS IS A RAG-TAG TEAM. 2 SCORERS AND THE REST ARE ROLE PLAYERS. NOW IF THAT GUY TIM GROVER SAYS THAT T-MAC IS HEALTHY THEN I WOULD TRADE JO. MAYBE JO PLUS JAMES JONES FOR T-MAC AND CENTER ANDERSEN CAN WORK... JO ISN'T GIVING US ANYTHING WITH HIS 102 YO OLD KNEES! MAYBE TIME TO GAMBLE WITHOUT LOSING OUR CHANCE FOR THIS YEAR'S FREE AGENT BOUNTY. WE NEED SCORERS. NUFF OF THAT DEFENSE CR@P SINCE WE GET BLOWN OUT ANYWAY WITH THIS LINE-UP. A BUNCH OF STATUES!MASQUERADING AS DEFENDERS.
Heatin huddle .6 seconds left: Sporon: WATCH OUT FOR THE LOB!!! this is the time for our "motor" to work 100%. it's just perfect for our "dynamics". time for some "chaos". (Wade looking puzzled and thinking it's better to take a crap that to listen to this). Sporon: Rio! Gotta keep Rondo in front of you! the back his jersey is what you've seen all night!!! watch the LOB! Chalmers: Uhh coach...what motor? Buzzer sound. Lost in translation.
FIRST OF ALL, LET ME START BY SAYING THAT I BELIEVE BEASLEY WILL DEVELOP INTO A GREAT PLAYER IN THE FUTURE. WITH THAT SAID, HOWEVER, ARE THE MIAMI HEAT STUNTING HIS GROWTH WITH THE WAY THEY'RE HANDLING HIM. IS HASLEM UNJUSTIFIABLY TAKING BEASLEY MINUTES AWAY FROM HIM. I DARE SAY NO TO THAT! CAN'T COMPARE ROSE (CHICAGO) WITH BEASLEY'S SITUATION SINCE ROSE IS NOT PLAYING WITH A STAR LIKE WADE. WADE IS THE RESIDENT STAR OF MIAMI. LIKE IT OR NOT, HE IS A PROVEN COMMODITY. BEASLEY IS A GIFTED 20 YO STILL LEARNING LIFE IN THE NBA. I GUESS TOO MANY PEOPLE HERE ARE IN LOVE WITH HIS UPSIDE. FURTHERMORE, WHY CAN'T MIKE AND UDONIS SHARE THE POSITION OR FOR MIKE SLIDE TO SF EVERY NOW AND AGAIN? GREAT PLAYERS HAVE TO LEARN TWO OR SEVERAL POSITIONS TO BECOME REALLY EFFECTIVE AND GET MORE PLAYING TIME. REALITY IS HE'S A YOUNG PROSPECT THAT SHOWS A GREAT TOUCH FROM THE OUTSIDE AND HAS TREMENDOUS BALL SKILLS. BUT HE IS ALSO A RAW PLAYER THAT IS UNDERSIZED AT THAT POSITION AND STILL A WORK IN PROGRESS ON DEFENSE. HE'LL SCORE OF COURSE BUT HE'S NOT GOING TO STOP ANYONE - YET. GIVE HIM THE LOVE AND BE HAPPY HE'S IN MIAMI. ENJOY HIS GAME WHILE THE TEAM TRIES TO GROW WITH HIM. BUT DON'T FORGET THAT WE DO HAVE A STAR HERE ON A CONTRACT YEAR THAT WE WANT TO KEEP HAPPY AS WELL. AND IF BEASLEY IS NOT GOING TO HELP WIN IN CERTAIN GAMES, THEN DON'T BE SURPRISED IF THEY SIT HIM. HE'S YOUNG. HE'LL GET HIS TIME (HERE OR ELSEWHERE. MEANTIME, THE COURTSHIP ON HOW TO KEEP WADE WILL CONTINUE. HE IS THE IMMEDIATE PLAN. HE IS NOW. HE IS IN HIS PRIME AND HE CAN WIN GIVEN THE RIGHT SITUATION. JUST PRAY BEASLEY WILL BE PART OF THAT, LIKE IT OR NOT.
@TylerD no issue that wade will have great games. the question is at who's expense? in the short winning run a few sleeps ago, wade was playing off his team mates and allowed them tp get into a rhythm first before he looked for his shots, the heat was doing ok against the spurs early then wade lead a concerted effort not to ride beasley's hot hand. i'm all for the 'old wade to come back but maybe he's trying too hard and this is stunting the growth of his team as well as his team mates. kobe and lebron has learned when to take over...wade appears to avoid seeing this. maybe he's turning more into an iverson or t-mac (your gifted scorers) who'll get their points regardless of consequence.
wade has lost his will and that's the problem. that plus he's so much shorter that melo, lebron, kobe etc thus exposing his now "glaring" limitations. he over-achieved last year for that 2010 paycheck.
wade is not struggling he's shown his ceiling and his game is now officially in decline. wade > arenas - yes. and that's about it. i'd trade wade for durant in a heartbeat (but they'll decline!) bosh is wade -only taller. loves his stats and doesn't care about his team mates. JO is done. even MJ's trainer can't fix those knees. praying for more magloire playing time. wade will win this year's scoring title. game against spurs has proven that he's not working on that. 7-45 fg% till 2010. wade can play point but he won't. too afraid he'll have to pass the ball! or maybe this is wade's unathletic, shorter, chubbier twin brother we're seeing today.
spo's coaching plus his chaotic substitution patterns is due to the pressure of winning and his lack of experience. he also lacks the skill to develop young players, more so limited talents such as chalmers and cook. but riley has surrounded spo with a team that has no balance. loaded with sf's and big men (nonathletic ones) and wanting of a real pg, any coach will find it hard to succeed. however, i also believe that spo, despite all of the above, is not the coach for this team. wade is.
watching the game on replay and can't help but notice the obvious that the heat just refused to ride beasley's hot hand. gotta admit that the heat seem to not know anything about offense! this team, though lacking in athleticism, is not that short on talent as some suggest. but without the right blueprint for offense, we'll continue to lose - badly. forget 2010! riley will find a way to stuff it up. i don't believe players are that excited at going to miami with riley running the show. he has lost the touch years ago!
so many posts on Christmas eve! what a sad life slledge...gotta go. you can stay here and post some more...proves you're an invalid and can't leave home. SAD. sniff, sniff...
always wondered why there's so much fuss about this "slledge" character. must be a poor wade relative just hatin' on the guy. or a just another obsessed fan. loves the attention. just another invalid stuck on his pc. so sad.
http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2009/writers/britt_robson/12/22/wade.riley/index.html nico piece on wade and riley being "riley".
IT'S JUST SO FUNNY HOW THE TEAM PLAYED THEIR HEARTS OUT AND BEASLEY LOVERS ONLY LOOK AT HOW THEIR "BOY" WAS BENCHED LATE IN THE 4TH. HE WAS TAKEN OUT WHEN HE CAN'T DO ANYTHING AGAINST GASOL. HASLEM KEPT THE BALL IN PLAY SEVERAL TIMES AND THUS KEPT THEM IN THE GAME. BEASLEY JUST DOES NOT HUSTLE ENOUGH TO MERIT PLAYING LATE IN THAT GAME. THE LAKERS ARE THE DEFENDING CHAMPS. TO GO TOE-TO-TOE WITH THEM SAYS A LOT ABOUT HOW WE PLAYED. I LIKE BEASLEY BUT HIS TOUGHNESS NEEDS A LOT OF WORK.
when u have a riley who only cares about next year, don't blame Wade for feeling the pinch of carrying the load again! and how can spo not coach iverson? he is coaching wade and wade is a handful to coach as well.
WADE, BEASLEY AND JO AND A BUNCH OF PLAYERS NO OTHER NBA TEAM WOULD TRADE FOR! CAN'T BLAME WADE FOR NOT WANTING TO CARE.
CHALMERS? ARROYO? CHALMERS? ARROYO? NONE OF THESE TWO WILL EVER BE ALL-STARS! AND WE HAVE CHALMERS STARTING IN MIAMI!!! 9-7 IS A BLESSING. SAD TO SAY IVERSON STILL HAS NO TEAM...GO RILEY! HOPE YOUR 2010 DREAM IS WORTH IT. THIS SEASON IS TURNING INTO A NIGHTMARE FAST.
WHAT GET'S TO ME IS WHY HESITATE USING JO, HASLEM AND BEASLEY WITH WADE AND WHOEVER WE CALL A PG MORE OFTEN! THE LAKERS USE GASOL BYNUM WITH LAMAR AT THE SAME TIME, ALL OF THEM TALLER AND MAYBE WITH MORE TALENT. WHY IS IT SO HARD TO MAKE IT WORK FOR MIAMI? I THINK THEY (COACHING STAFF) ARE OVER-ANALYZING THE TEAM AND IT'S STUNTING IT'S GROWTH. MAYBE THIS WIN WILL OPEN THEIR EYES.

just tried this with espn trade machine : JO-Dorell Wright-Chris Quinn to Houston for T-Mac-Kyle Lowry-David Andersen. Money works. Houston says good bye to unappreciated T-Mac and get JO to man the paint till Yao comes back then JO can slide back to PF where he can do more damage (hopefully not to his knees!). Dorell can step in at SG while Andersen may actually work out for the Heat coz he's got range. and still has both legs working. Lowry can start or come off the bench. And best part is we don't have to see Quinn anymore! T-Mac and JO are great one year rentals for both teams.
chalk up another lucky win with a team that didn't have its resident star player (chris paul).
correction: 7-4 and this might be as get as it gets till we do something!
It's easy to understand Wade's frustration. Riley had surrounded him with second tier talents. Riley has promised a bounty in 2010 but Wade has been asking for help since that dismal 15-67 season. Miami might be an ideal place for a top-notch player to sign in but Riley's inaction is increasingly killing that! He has emphasized defense but doesn't have the talent to back that up either. It's high time to let our offense loose. Beasley and JO will also benefit from having AI since the opponents defense can't focus on Wade only. AI is also a better passer than Chalmers. Wade has said before that he wants to see what direction the Heat is taking before signing up. I know we're 7-3 but why does it feel like the boat is actually sinking? Let our offense loose and our defense should take care of itself. Top teams fuel their defense thru offense. We're starting to perfect the art of ugly ball!!!
hey cp 12, that "chucker" is a proven scorer. unless you've been in a coma the last ten years, our offense is on a bad 'diet' the last two games! teams, regardless of size needs scorers. you think diop can help them win?
another game where Wade looked tired. same look he had when the Hawks eliminated them in the 1st of the round play-offs. the Hawks BULLIED the heat. no other excuse. the hell with that vaunted defensive mentality -- SIGN AI and put some points in the hoop. it's simple -- we have guns but we don't have any bullets apart from Wade (who badly misfired) and Beasley (who showed-up today).
