That is my fear with Amare as well. 2010 is an opt out player option. What if he did get injured this year, he might not opt out, lots of question marks, and then would Wade stay with a potentially serious injured Amare.
So, what if Mickey told Riley then, F#CK THE LUXURY TAX!!! Posted by: williams46 | January 28, 2010 at 10:59 AM Williams, I don't think you understand the salary cap rules.
And lately, Miami had a chance to land Odom. What happen???? Is it Pat Riley's fault?????? Posted by: williams46 | January 28, 2010 at 10:51 AM Bell was a restricted free agent, the Bucks matched his deal. The other 2 guys Chased the money. Especially Mo.
My hats off to the Bulls organization for letting their lottery pick start from day one, start every game but one of his rookie season, play through his mistakes, let him get starter minutes every night, and not benching him for some veteran that wasn't apart of the long term plans. It's paid off, his development is ahead of schedule.
Yes you're right! But given the choice of JO and Beasley, if you're a Sun, who would you choose? Posted by: williams46 | January 28, 2010 at 10:39 AM Well considering Beasley isn't an expiring contract, and is only paid 4 million dollars, the Suns would have to take an additional 12 million in salary. How does that help them if they are looking for salary cap relief?
Even a grade schooler can easily notice that. Posted by: williams46 | January 28, 2010 at 10:29 AM Amare has an expiring contract JO has an expiring contract. Please explain how we lose cap space
Dude, you live in Orlando... come on!! Posted by: JB (working on my sugar intake) | January 28, 2010 at 10:27 AM LOL, Shaq was not a top 3 player in the NBA then.
many players before Wade took huge pay cuts just for the opportunity to play in the finals. Posted by: williams46 | January 28, 2010 at 10:17 AM Never has one of the top 3 players in the NBA taken a huge pay cutt to go win a championship. Never has one of the top 3 players in the NBA left their team during free agency. Anymore fail you would like to share with us?
So....this deal of Amare for JO, we obviously need to bring back some salaries to make this work. I wonder who we want?
He was a star. Maybe not an All-Star, but enough of a star to get Riley to offer him a lucrative contract. Posted by: eddieomaha | January 27, 2010 at 11:57 PM What? Stop inventing sh@t, we offered him the MLE.
Posted by: eddieomaha | January 27, 2010 at 11:48 PM LOL, what was Mo Williams before he came to Clev and played on the same team with Lebron? Certainly not a star. Anything his is now is partially because of him.
I think LeBron has proven that it does. Posted by: eddieomaha | January 27, 2010 at 11:40 PM Lebron has never even played with another star on his team before. And he's been to a finals. Again, only one team a year wins a Championship. And Tim Duncan doesn't think he needs other superstars to win rings.
LeBron is likely to stay in Cleveland, especially if they land another star. Posted by: eddieomaha | January 27, 2010 at 11:18 PM Where is this fake cap space Cleveland is going to get this off season? Oh wait, let me guess, a trade.
Stop hitting the panic button all the time. Why is it that nobody can come to the Heat? WHy will everybody flock to LA? Or Clv? Why cant we be contenders again? Theres no real reason to suggest we wont. WTF are we worried about what Clv may or may not do? F*ck Clv. Only one team can win a title per year, we wont be that team this year. SO what? We werent that team when ZO was in his prime nor Hardaway. Learn to be patient. This franchise will be here for a long time and we need to do whats best for the future. Panicking to risk bringing in guys taht may leave us in the offseason or trading for guys that will leave us in salary cap hell is not the answer. There is no quick fix, this year will be what it is. The only way its a failure or a step backwards is if we dont make the playoffs, and I dont see that happening. There is no step forward for this team, unless its the development of Beasley,Wright, Cook , and Chalmers and the continued healthy of Wade. Nobody else will be here next year. So lets sit tight and stop trying to move our best investment since Dwayne Wade. Posted by: kbboy80 | January 27, 2010 at 11:00 PM Hell yeah!
Chicago could move Hinrich to the Lakers for expirings, clearing enough space to sign 2 free agents. ----Eddie---- 2 free agents? Oh no, not 2 free agents. 2 Max free agents? Dude, no they fuking can't. You can't sign two max free agents with 25 million in cap space. Hell that's less space than Miami will have this offseason, and Miami still won't be able to sign two max free agents
We never had a chance at Melo. It was never rumored, never discussed on any of the major websites. It was another one of Eddies trade machine trades.
"The Bulls are better than the Heat because they actually play their talent." Fixed. Posted by: eddieomaha | January 27, 2010 at 10:45 PM Fixed it again for you.
Oh and by the way, I am in Grad School, getting my Masters. Posted by: JD | January 27, 2010 at 10:37 PM LOL, who fuking cares?
Well Eddie did say the heat would have more wins if Beasley wasn't on the team. how'd that 2nd half work tonight?
ONLY if it involved Carmelo or Dirk. And not guys like... sorry Eddie.. Kaman, Camby or Butler. Posted by: Chris | January 27, 2010 at 10:29 PM Exactly, I actually only said there were 2 guys I would have traded Beasley's draft rights for, that was boozer and bosh.
Beasley is the most valuable trade chip we have. Posted by: eddieomaha | January 27, 2010 at 10:25 PM No it isn't, JO's expiring 23 million dollars is the biggest chip we have. Beasley's 16 and 7 a night at 4 million dollars is the best investment the Heat have.
I wouldn't talk, your boy was abused by Amir Johnson on that one post play. Posted by: eddieomaha | January 27, 2010 at 10:04 PM eddie, you are just going way overboard these days. You are bordering on Sledgesq absurdity these past days.
You can't be pro-Beasley and pro-winning right now. He's the most valuable trade asset we have. Eddie- There is absolutely nothing to back up this statement. Numerous upon numerous stats have been presented to you over the past couple of days that show Beasley getting minutes means wins. The Heat are 7-8 in games decided by 7 points or less when Mike doesn't play at the end. Apparently being anti Beasley doesn't mean wins.
LOL, nothing like not helping your 21 year old forget about his injury and get back into the flow of the game BY sitting him to start the 2nd half. Spo can't coach for sh!t
Hopefully Mike can stop thinking about his knee in the 2nd half and get it amped back up
