Can't front though, that's what everyone would of said. Since Wade got injured & Shaq couldn't win it back then ('05), I think that proves who the star was though. Posted by: GodsSon521 | October 19, 2009 at 11:04 PM idk, i remember that last game against the pistons shaq went for 29 and 16, but no one gave him the ball in crunch time.
Wade is 28 and 32 is not super old yet! I give u Duncan was a monster on defense but I think Beasley was Duncan equal as an offensive monster. Beas actually played great against Duncan early last season before he got benches by spo! Blame spo for not allowing us to see how Beas could have been a rookie monster last season! Posted by: King Riley | August 01, 2009 at 02:33 PM Wade is 27. And i dont think Beasley would have been as good as duncan offensively last season as a rookie. Sure he is more diverse but duncan is more efficient, duncan is arguable the greatest PF of all time.
Honestly i dont know why everyone is hating on Mario Chambers. Im not saying he is going to be the next Gary Payton but he did put up 10 and 5 on .42 from the field and .36 from 3. Compare that to other rookie pg's. Billups, Deron Williams, Jason Kidd all put up similar stats, heck he had better stats than gary payton and rajan rondo did. Im not saying he is o thier level but just dont throw him under the bus like he is another damon jones or something he is at the very least a solid starting pg, and possibly can be an occational or even one or two time allstar over his career
if they didnt make the playoffs last year, and they did get worse by losing ben gordan,,,then how do they make the playoffs this year?? Posted by: doctorb | July 05, 2009 at 11:51 AM They made the playoffs and took boston to 7 games with 5 ot's in the series
To show fans that the Wade I once loved like many of you currently do has changed into an egotistical player much in the same vein as Kobe and Kidd! They are players that are Divas that are constantly b1tching and threatning to leave the minute things go sour.....and Wade has given Riley mixed signals and I don't think Riley and Wade get along well. It's not like Wade is asking for Riley to come back and coach. Riley is doing the right thing, protecting the franchise from doom should Wade leave to Chicago! Posted by: King Riley | July 03, 2009 at 05:38 PM King Riley you are complaining about problems all superstars have, Lebron has been complaining, should he get traded? Jordan complained, should they have traded him, the list goes on. Wade isnt the only player that tried to make demands to the management, this comes with being a superstar, only a couple are exceptions. Wade did not threaten to not play hard or demand a trade if riley didnt do anything this summer, he just said for him to sign an extension this summer there would have to be some moves to convince him the team is moving in the right direction. Now riley should do anything unless an extension is signed. But you dont trade a super star for this reason.
Kobe is an excellent passer too and has had a high assist total but especially the 2 yrs after Shaq left all he wanted to do was score a zillion points just like Wade. Both are Hogs that want to be the primary scorer and that hold onto the ball too long despite the fact the may avg 5-7 assts per game! HOGS I tell u! Posted by: King Riley | July 03, 2009 at 03:01 PM Wade has almost always made top 10 in assist, kobe has never made top 20. Kobe only made over 5 assist per game 5 times in his career, wade did 5 out of his first 6 years. Kobe is a good passer but he isnt as willing a passer as wade at all
But YML with those guys they will never help Wade win a title. Wade needs to learn how to relax control of the offense. We need the best players and Wade has to learn to play and share with the best players....if he can't do this then Wade isn't worth keeping. Sharing is Caring! At least we know that Beas is a good team guy that doesn't have issues over fighting for control of the offense as Wade seems to have problems with! Posted by: King Riley | July 03, 2009 at 11:22 AM I reiterate, wade likes the ball in his hands but he hasnt shown that he is unwilling to play off the ball, he did it in the olympics, he just needs better teamates or for the coach to put the best possible lineup out there for him to work with. As for beasley although he doesnt demand control of the offense, he was at times a black whole, he would not pass out of double teams or on drives and ended up getting into trouble, when he has the ball in his hands most likely hes jacking it up
Beasley is a trustworthy teammate......he can score just as much as Wade....answer that! Haslem sucks though! As for Chalmers he was stunted because of Wade's hog demands! JO is not bad as long as the HOG passes to him even with bad knees.....the playoffs showed this! MY CONCLUSION: WADE IS A HOG! Posted by: King Riley | July 03, 2009 at 10:38 AM Wade was top 5 in the league in assist, i dont think thats being a hog. Its a matter of the offense set up by spo. wade himself said he doesnt want to score that many points again, and why would he want better teamates if he wanted to take all the shots, I think he didnt trust bealsey, which is why at times he wanted haslem in, it doesnt have anything to do with beasleys offense.
Posted by: King Riley | June 21, 2009 at 04:58 PM king riley i respect your opinion but it just sounds rediculus to me. I dont think you realize that most superstars in the nba has diva tendencies, look at Lebron, Kobe, Stoudamire, Melo, would you trade any of them. And I love beasley as a player and prefer not to trade him but he is no wade. To say that he will be a better player than wade is kind of ludacris. I think he will be great but better than wade in a couple years when wade will still be in his prime thats crazy. It just seems to me that you are putting all the problems from this past season on wades shoulders. If wade didnt want anybody else to take shots from him then why are you so certain that he wants Riley to trade for bosh, who is a great scorer in his own right. The offensive troubles had to do with the head coach. He should have designed better plays and an actual offense. Lastley I just dont think you go out of your way to trade wade. He is a top 3 player and unless he demands a trade you dont trade a player like that, if he signs an extension great, if he doesnt, we wait till 2010 and see try again and if he still declines THEN you try to rebuild around bealsey. wade is way more untradable than bealsey at this point, he is just that much better.
if we base what wade does on history, history has shown that its all about the money. -some blogger said that if wade signs an extension he will get the same money as if he waits til 2010. I dont think that is true. I think by waiting to 2010, his contract would be higher, as maxed out deals rise each year. Am i mistaken? Posted by: doctorb | June 19, 2009 at 12:26 PM Doc if wade signs an extension this summer it'll be based on the expiring of his contract next summer, basically he signs the extension now for the max he would be eligible for once his contract expire and it kicks in next summer. So weather or not he signs an extension this summer or wait untill next year he still would make the same and have the same amount of years on his contract. So I dont think money is an issue here.

Are you kidding me, u wouldn't trade Wade for LeBron? LeBron is way younger, stronger, and already better than Wade. Any GM would pull the trigger on that trade, even Riley! Posted by: King Riley | June 19, 2009 at 11:00 AM Yes but Rose is in no shape or form Lebron, to trade Wade for Rose would be one of the most lopsided trades in current history
DocB if wade extends he will be making the same amount of money he would make if he resigns with the heat in 2010, and the heat can offer more than any other team, so money wouldnt be the issue there.
Once again Winderman, you get this wrong. Caron Butler was the carrot that eventually turned into Pau Gasol. Odom is still there and it's doubtfull that he leaves. Brian Grant was waived for luxury tax relief and the Lakers got the better of that trade. They are well set for the next few years while the Heat have nothing to show for the trade with Shaq gone and they are still rebuilding. The Lakers are in the Finals for the second straight year. Posted by: RickyBlaque | May 31, 2009 at 12:34 AM Shaqs first 3 years in miami was better than what gasol gave in LA and plus we won the title, while the lakers are the better team now we still got the better end of the trade even if u include the fact that caron turned into gasol. Imagine if shaq and kobe werent b*tchin and he stayed in LA, possibly another 3 rings
what riley said made me pissed. if beasley is traded i will not invest a single penny on the heat and refuse to watch anymore wade shows until riley finally steps down. trade him for bosh, i wish the trade goes down so the heat can look like the stupid mavs. Posted by: hotleo20 | May 12, 2009 at 11:45 PM If beasley is traded for bosh it would hardly be a wade show.you are really overreacting there. I would prefer not to trade beasley at all, but they actually trade himfor bosh can you really be mad? is that really going to damage us so much that we will never win a thing now or in the futur? I think some people over react on too many things, no player in this league is made of gold, heck i would trade wade if that meant us winning championships (although there isnt any player outside of lebron james or kobe who provide what wade does). You seem to have the idea in your head that the heat is beasley or nothing. I love beasley but stop talking like he is the golden cow, the way you speak is as if you wouldnt even take MJ for him straight up
I disagree on Chandler. I agree that offensively he's nothing more than a big athlete that can catch and dunk (which is actually kind of rare for a center in today's league), but I love his defense and rebounding, which is exactly what we need out of a center IMO. And I think he's a far better defender than either of you are giving him credit for. There's a lot more to interior defense than blocked shots, and Chandler gives it to you. Posted by: josh | May 11, 2009 at 02:06 AM As I said, he is a good help defender, but his one on one defense is bad, i've watched him play allot this year and he gets abused by big centers, he's too weak he gets out-muschuled in the post. Defensively he is a taller more athletic udonis halsem, good help defender and understands rotations but cant contain stronger big men. My criticism really doesnt have anything to do with his lack of blocks.
If Kaman or Chandler becomes available in trade for anything short of Wade or Beasley, I'm jumping all over it. Posted by: josh | May 10, 2009 at 10:40 PM Look, let's pretend for a second that we trade Mark Blount's expiring, Dorell Wright, and Daequan Cook for Tyson Chandler. Posted by: josh | May 10, 2009 at 10:57 PM Josh you are realy overstating Chandlers ability.He is a solid decent center but he really is a product of chris pauls dominence in NO. I watched him play in chicago and in New Orleans, he can rebound, cant block shots very well, cand score on anything beyond an open dunk, if you hand him the ball in the post he will most likely get blocked or stripped. His one on one defense isnt that good neither. He is just a good help defender but he gets abused in ISO's. I would not give up anything beyond expirings for him and most likely would make him back up behind oneal, atleast oneal can score and is a better defender.
doctorb, blount, j-will, walker, and shaq definitely should be on the list. Posted by: captain charisma | May 08, 2009 at 04:27 PM Maybe walker and probably even Jwill due to his injuries, but f*ckin shaq?, i mean i know its law for us to hate shaq for what he did but i dont think you can ever put him in the same catagory as earl barron and wayne simion, thats just disrespectful
i would worry about beasley getting into foul trouble guarding sf's on the perimeter. he belongs at pf but i'm not the coach. we shall see what type of progress is made next year however. anyone interested in iverson on a 1 yr deal? Posted by: adrian | May 07, 2009 at 12:50 AM idk, if he was goin to accept comming off the bench then of course him and cook would make an explosive bench, but he wont and honestly I just dont think he'd fit in the starting lineup with wade and beasley, at this stage in his career he still wants to be the man, even in his prime he fits better on a team where he's given all offensive control and has defensive parts around him, like lebron james cavs.
Uh, seriously? When you're out defending people on the perimeter and rotating onto 3-point shooters, you're significantly farther away from the rim. Read: you're significantly less involved in your team's rebounding. Go play basketball, it's the sport with the round ball and 10 foot high circular metal rim. Then you can comment more. Posted by: josh | May 06, 2009 at 10:59 PM While im not a fan of Beasley at SF I do think it is possible for him to get 8-10 boards a game at that position, look at marion. As a PF he would be ideal as more of a boozer/jamison hybrid, but as a SF he'd have to develope his game more in the mold of carmelo (which he did say at the begining of the season he models his game after). I would prefer he plays PF because It caters to his surpirior athlethisism over other PF's and he'd get points off that, but ar a SF he'd have to work on his footwork and pump fakes because hes not going to just blow by most nba SF's like that. No with that being said I dont see anything wrong with teaching him the position so he become more versitile, only as long as he gets most of his minutes at PF.
