What I don't understand is... Everyone should have known since we traded for JO that 2010 was the plan all along. I thought that was common knowledge.

Q: Why does it seem that all Heat fans dislike Udonis Haslem? The guy is a leader on and off the floor, never misses a defensive assignment, does the dirty work, plays through various injuries, and works harder than anyone. -- Brian. A: Numbers. Numbers. Numbers. For some, it's all about the stats. And until you can quantify "defensive help" numerically, most fans will continue to want their points. He's a special breed, no doubt. Except you can quantify Haslem's "defensive help"... it's called taking charges. Surely you didn't mean his shotblocking skills, which are non-existant, or intimidating size, which he doesn't have. He's REALLY not that good of a defender. People try to act like he's Dikembe or Zo...
