Trucker, I love your imagination but, I mean, seriously? The Heat couldn't even woo Joel Przybilla. The Heat has nothing to offer except a minimum salary deal. More importantly, what's up with Eddy Curry? I mean, this guy must be pretty far gone if he can't move past Dexter Pittman on the depth chart. -joe
Pittman is better than Pryzbilla, in my opinion. -joe
Actually, he already shaved his head. He wears a wig. -joe
Guys, I don't think LeBron is going to Cleveland! That was kind of the point of the blog post. You know, just pointing out I thought the idea was ridiculous. -joe
This article is a load of BS! This non-info could possibly satisfy your editor for your lack of a story. But us Heat fans ain't buying!!!! You should have your *** kicked for calling yourself a journalist.

As strange as it sounds, Lebron actually hampers the Heat. He takes away from the talent of the other players. Unlike Magic, Bird, Jordan, Zeke and the likes in the past, Lebron makes no one better. Posted by: Solomon Richardson | Friday, January 20, 2012 at 04:31 PM _____________________________________________________ This has got to be a joke! LeBron has made Chalmers, James Jones, Mike Miller and Shane Battier better players this season. Check the three-point percentages this season. The Heat is shooting 40 percent from three-point range. It's a direct result of James being more aggressive in the post and getting guys open on the perimeter. LeBron has made Joel Anthony a better player. He's forced Joel to learn how to catch a pass! -joe
Joe, check the numbers on the 3 point shooting. What you wrote doesn't add up. Or divide, whatever. Posted by: Mr. B | Friday, January 20, 2012 at 07:25 AM ___________________________________________________ Thanks. Brief bout with dyslexia there. -joe

Eddy Curry should be cleared to play soon. The hope is that he adds some offense from the center position. I was just talking about Joel's defense. He does seem to disrupt a lot of shots in the paint. At some point in the third quarter, I glanced at the stats monitor to check the points in the paint and the Heat led 32-18. Joel has a lot to do with those numbers. -joe
I don't think anyone was happy with the loss, maybe content with some aspects of how they played. It's like being upset with your game even if you've won, but played poorly. Chalmers is playing well now, like him closing games. Posted by: Greg Gembe | Thursday, January 12, 2012 at 11:49 AM ____________________________________________________ Excellent point. -joe
Credit the loss to Spo? You realize LeBron didn't take a shot in the fourth quarter and Wade was 1 of 8, right? The West Coast swing is catching up to them, that's all. I wouldn't be surprised if they lost the next two games. -joe
I don't see the Heat trading anyone. The team is happy with the young players they have and are looking forward to developing them. In the long run, developing Gladness and Pittman will help when the more punitive luxury tax kicks in. They're not spending anymore money on a center. Plus, they've got Eddy Curry, who will be joining the rotation soon. -joe

I agree. Gladness is very long and plays above the rim. He can develop into a very nice player. -joe

What's the latest update on Wade? Does he still have a sore foot? Did anybody miss the trip besides Curry? Inquiring minds... Posted by: riosaddles | Monday, January 09, 2012 at 11:58 AM ______________________________________________ Haha, nice handle...The latest on Wade is the same on Wade, his foot is holding him out. He really wants to be on the court and is shooting for Tuesday against Golden State. I'll see how he's feeling here in a few hours and report back. Check my Twitter account because the news will be posted there first. ( Practice is supposed to end around 1:30 local. -joe
Wade was 1 of 6 in the fourth quarter. McGrady was 3 of 3 from three-point range. There's the game. -joe
2) What was Spo thinking in the last minutes. He knows Norris can light it up. There was a game where Norris came in and took over, exploiting the zone that he's knows so well since he spent 4 yrs in college. Why keep Chalmers in along with Wade, when both were stinking up the place. I know why you keep Wade in - and that's not on Spo, but as a coach when you have two players making bone headed plays and turning the ball over, at some point you have to put in the rookie for scoring and hope he makes something happen. 3) After Dallas, etc. used zone and slowed Miami, why hasn't Spo found a zone buster yet? He has a basic offense to combat the zone, but he doesn't have a rotation. Before players can get comfortable with the zone, he's rotating them out, except for bone headed chalmers. Posted by: energy_bust | Tuesday, January 03, 2012 at 09:54 AM ______________________________________________ I see where you're coming from with Cole, but Chalmers entered the game shooting 9 of 12 from three-point range. -joe
Good call, Don. I went back and watched it more closely. Amazingly similar! Thanks for the heads up. The blog is updated. -joe

Heat don't have the trade chips to get Cousins. Even if they did, Miami probably isn't the best fit for him at this point in his career. Needs to suck it up Sacramento and quit crying. -joe
Nice conversation starter, spidey. -joe ______________________________________________ Joe, the Sentinel Heat blogs is killing this blog. Posted by: Spiderman | Friday, December 09, 2011 at 01:27 PM
$6 million!!! ______________________________________________ Looks like Bibby screwed himself finacially by walking away from his fat guaranteed contract last year by signing with the Heat. Posted by: RP | Friday, December 09, 2011 at 01:41 PM -joe
i think heat must decide now to waive Miller... it so quite sad to let him go but we got to face reality that he is injury prone type... get rid of House for roster spot and hoping that heat would NOT pick up Juwan Howard to waste a roster spot... Posted by: rockstarjc | Friday, December 02, 2011 at 08:01 AM ______________________________________________ Eddie House is under contract this season and will be on the team unless he is traded, which doesn't seem likely. -joe
