"under pat, has any draft pick after #10 panned out?" this question obviously excludes Beasley (2), Wade (5), and Caron (10). And when you look even closer, Riley didn't want to draft Wade or Beasley. Dude lost his marbles years ago. We're lucky to have won it all in '06, but that was all because of Flash. RETIRE RILEY!!!
the root of the problem is rat riley. he IS the current coach of the heat. nothing has changed since he left the sidelines. spo is his puppet. why are we playing Q and Haslem so much? most likely, they will not be on the team next season. dorell and beasley should be getting tons of minutes, not getting jerked around for veteran scrubs. and we all know how much pat the rat loves his veterans, and does not like youngsters. under pat, has any draft pick after #10 panned out? zero that i can think of. all successful teams have youngsters that contribute. we develop NONE; it's pathetic. RETIRE RILEY!!!
"Q: Michael has definitely improved his athleticism. Why doesn't he rebound the ball consistently on every play, the way Joel and Udonis do? Often times I see him running the court already after a shot from his teammates. If he puts an effort into it, he will be a very good rebounder. -- Ryan." my answer: BECAUSE HE SPENDS SOME, IF NOT MOST, OF HIS MINUTES AT SF.
"But if Riley thinks Sopron has a brilliant coaching mind, that means that he's willing to let him learn of the job and stick it out with him as our head coach for a long time." and what "elite" FA is going to want to play for this crap-for-brains coach next season? Wade included.
But actually if you are going to blame Spoelstra, you really have to blame Riley for being old and senile not to recognize the coach's defencies. I said this years ago, Riley has lost a few marbles. As long as he is in charge of our organization we are going nowhere. I'm sure Wade sees this behind closed doors, which is y he contemplating leaving Posted by: GarrettKall | January 06, 2010 at 11:28 PM I really must ask you this. Are you retarded? Posted by: doctorb | January 06, 2010 at 11:30 PM I completely agree with Garrett. Riley's been toasted for years. and for those calling for Spo's head, call for Riley's; he's the root of the problem.
Horrible calls I agree, but no moving screen should have been called. He just beat Chalmers straight up on a back cut. Chalmers is an idiot. Posted by: kbboy80 | January 06, 2010 at 11:24 PM I'm not trying to make an excuse for Rio, but big baby clearly elbowed him while coming around that screen. and he was still moving.
"How could Mario Chalmers lose Rajon Rondo. How? How?" moving screen, that's how. we got hosed on a few big calls/non-calls. lime when Q got elbowed by Pierce and got called for a foul... then we got a tech. ouch.
"Perhaps it was a game late, considering how Dallas' Erick Dampier destroyed the Heat in the middle on Friday night, but Jamaal Magloire was the first Heat center off the bench." spo and riley are geniuses.
nobody mentioned the genius move by spo in the 4th: arroyo wade chalmers beasley haslem i would have gone with: wright wade beasley haslem magloire but he went small and we got destroyed by erica dampier and some shrimp named barrea. brilliant! is Spo insane? "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results." Haslem at Center. I thought he realized it didn't work out early last season. Over one year later, and he's still trying to fit the square peg in the round hole. Posted by: d.wade.biw | December 12, 2009 at 01:57 PM

"He [Cook] should be coming off midrange screens much like Rip Hamilton used to do." exactly. I've been thinking the same thing since last season. Rip makes his defender work to get through screens and keep up with him. it would be nice to see him wear out defenders by chasing him around, and Cook would get some good mid-range shots. a guy with his athleticism shouldn't be relegated to sitting around the perimeter all game. and I agree: Dorell > Jones
"But what could we possibly give Portland in return?" Jones and a pick? they LOVE Jones in Portland. Seriously.
"where's Magloire??? I thought he would have been our best matchup vs Oden (20 Rebs). instead, when JO wen out with foul trouble, Joel came in and got abused." I forgot to mention Spo also used Haslem at C. has he not realized that Haslem is NOT a C??? why not Magloire? Haslem at Center = Guaranteed Fail
where's Magloire??? I thought he would have been our best matchup vs Oden (20 Rebs). instead, when JO wen out with foul trouble, Joel came in and got abused. that's the only gripe I have about Spo last night ... and his odd substitution patterns, which we're used to already. good game ... go heat!!!
and to all of the bloggers that were saying, "we are 7-2... why is everyone complaining?". now you see why. although we won some games early this season, most of us were able to see the deficiencies within the team. essentially, it's a repeat of last season. and since Riley has the "let's wait til 2010" approach, why not Wade? this attitude starts from the top and it's contagious.
JB, wherever you are: my girlfriend got a new mongoose mountain bike for $100 at Walmart in Kendall. it has front and rear shock absorbers and 21 speeds. no, it's not a Trek or Cannondale, but it's been perfect for casual riding (she's never taken it off-road)... we usually go for long, 3-4 hour rides. so far, 3 years and it's still as good as new.
He's a great shooter [Morrow], but Golden State stats are fool's gold. They're 6-10. Posted by: josh | December 01, 2009 at 02:31 PM very true. it's just disheartening that we drop talent like Morrow and keep the likes of Joel, Shav and Diawara. if Beas or Dorell are traded to another team, I'm sure they will flourish. f*ck Riley and his "Heat culture".
Anthony Morrow has hit 20 of 37 from downtown over his last 4 games. TWENTY THREE POINTERS IN FOUR GAMES. we could have really used that kind of production right about now, especially with his salary. but on this team, he'd probably be warming the seat next to Dorell. go heat.
did beasley play the entire 4th quarter? i think so, and this could be another one of Spo's blunders. I want Beas out there to finish, but not when he is exhausted. dorell has played well in his limited minutes so far. not sure why he's not getting more pt in this "developmental" season. our defensive scheme SUCKS!!! year after year, we rotate and leave shooters wide open. this also causes mismatches. thanks Riley.
"Q: As a result of Ty Lawson's performance, Anthony Carter is now available. Any interest on the Heat's end? -- Matt. if we pass on iverson and acquire AC, I will not watch another game. guy couldn't make a jumper if his life depended on it.
"Spoelstra tried to buy time in a four-point game in the fourth quarter with a iineup of Randolph, Joel Anthony, Chalmers, Carlos Arroyo and Daequan Cook" why does spo keep doing bone-headed things like this?????
"Isn't Jermaine O'Neal supposed to be a shot-blocker? So why does he continue to back off plays and attempt to draw charges, bids that often end in blocking fouls?" -Ira Spo/Riley and their "heat culture"
from dorell's espn profile: "It's a funny time for Wright to be out of the rotation. The Heat have struggled to defend lately and lost Quentin Richardson, who has been the defensive stopper, to a back injury Wednesday... He could have been useful against Joe Johnson." ditto tonight. even espn recognizes how much of an idiot spo is.
