too small, too weak, too undertalented…..blow it up!

heat for life

true true true trade who?

Big_guy305

Trade herro for a 2 way pf/c that can space the floor.

heat for life

ty is not tradeable for anything real good,injuries no d.

Big_guy305

You trade him for Collins and a late first or 2nd. Also I agree he’s injury prone, but his d has gotten somewhat better.

utah has a ty already jordon clarkson and they got that george kid ty not needed in utah

Big_guy305

Says who? Ainge always wanted herro, ever since he came out of Kentucky. Jordan Clarkson is decent but he’s gonna turn 32 soon. Also herro is younger and can still grow. Furthermore herro is a better shooter, and Clarkson defensive rating is at 123.6 , while herro’s own is at 115. Lastly George is a pg, they can put herro at sg, then move sexton to 6th man role.

heat for life

ainge helping riley out not gonna happen

Big_guy305

You don’t know that, especially if it’s for the right price. Herro would up improve there sg position. Also don’t forget wade is a part owner for the jazz ,so he can be the middle ground. They could have a starting lineup of George, herro hendrix, markkennan,and Kessler.

heat for life

ainge and riley hate each other that would trump d wade

Big_guy305

I wouldn’t blow it all up yet, I would rather we retool at pf/c position. Then if that doesn’t work next season, then I would blow it up.

Big_guy305

LOSING STREAKS SUCK!

heat for life

just not enough talent and jimmys old.oh well life goes on

Bout30man

Yes, reality is that we are about a 45 win team at best, a little over .500. But, until we are bounced out, there will always be the possibility of what happened last year. Funny thing is I would take this team over last years except one factor, a somewhat less dominant Jimmy.

heat for life

caleb martin is showing why he was on a 10 day contract ,

heat for life

jokic took game off rest that big body

heat for life

next year ahtletic bigs with size needed,ob toppin was avail.not no mo.pat gets an f last few years.roziers decent pick up just to fjn small this team

Bout30man

Another close loss, that is not a moral victory at all.

heat for life

do we get a 1/2 win

Big_guy305

No moral victories, especially when Jimmy plays like ass.

Big_guy305

This team looks like 2nd round exit.

Bout30man

I would take that but it may be optimistic.

Big_guy305

Ik it’s a tad bit optimistic, but I basing it off if we can get the 5th seed and play the magic or knicks. Also we have the 2nd easiest schedule, so it should be possible.

Loss to the Wiz, makes it hard to have that kind of confidence.

Big_guy305

Ikr lol, but we still gotta have faith, since we made it to the finals last year as a play- in team. Also we’re not in the wild west .

heat for life

to small to unathletic jimmy to old man not looking like a playoff run this year

heat for life

gordon rebound over caleb jokic over bam fk this midget team

Big_guy305

Game over , too much size.

Reality Czech

Absolutely correct! Changes in that regard are sorely needed in the offseason as many have pointed out.

Big_guy305

The offseason doesn’t come soon enough sadly. The small ball Era is over, spo needs to move on with the times. Also Riley needs to get a really good pf/c that can space the floor.

Bout30man

We have to get some stops right now or it’s over.

heat for life

one reggie jackson spurt all it took,

heat for life

when is the last time a heat player scored over 30.

Big_guy305

The jazz game when Jimmy went off.

Reality Czech

Ask Google

Zac

Jimmy against Utah. Here’s another – when was the last time Miami beat a good team? I’m gonna say February 13th.

I think Miami is 2-9 against the top 3 teams in each conference. Certainly isn’t inspiring confidence that they below.

Big_guy305

Jimmy with a trash game tonight.

heat for life

energy and effort just not there anymore

Big_guy305

Saving it for the playoff, bam need to make a jump next year in scoring.

heat for life

detroit game cant get here fast enough

Zac

Gotta give it to Spo, he plays his guys even when they don’t have it. Bam the prior 3 games, Jimmy tonight.

On to the Pistons…

Big_guy305

He’s so stubborn. That’s one of his weaknesses.

heat for life

2 best players gotta play them why play jovic or mills

ZechMerquise

i mean….if you dont play Bam and jimmy. who else is he gonna play. Thomas bryant?

heat for life

heat team just not good enough,jims old just aint got it

heat for life

reggie jackson just buried us

ZechMerquise

game slipping away

Big_guy305

Game still winnable

heat for life

is delon wright injured

Big_guy305

I don’t think so.

Big_guy305

We need to knock down more 3s.

Big_guy305

I don’t understand why patty getting more mins then Wright, especially if he just got on the team.

Bout30man

It’s a mistake. Mills just did an ole on Watson.

Big_guy305

It definitely is a mistake, I think spo plays him more because he respects him more since he played against us in the finals when he was a spur .

heat for life

get 40 yr old mills out jeez

heat for life

jjj been bad tonight

Big_guy305

Mavs been hot ever since beating us.

Bout30man

This seems like a game we have a shot at. Going to be tough, but we can do it.

Big_guy305

We can win this if bam stays aggressive and either Jimmy or rozier have a really good 4th quarter.

Big_guy305

Down 1 and we only made 4 3s, while Denver made 8.

heat for life

dunc bam very good that qtr

Big_guy305

I LOVE AGGRESSIVE BAM! FINALLY BREAKING OUT THAT SLUMP.

heat for life

with jimmy not a ss anymore bam is young enough to do this the whole game

Big_guy305

If bam gets a 3pt shot, he would be our lead scorer. Maybe 22 – 25 points a game.

heat for life

all star bam back been gone for a while

Big_guy305

If bam ever fully develops a consistent 3pt shot, we would become way more dangerous.

heat for life

bam spurt go

Big_guy305

Bam picking up steam.

Big_guy305

Need bam to pick up the scoring if we want to win this.

Reality Czech

Correct, and he heard you

Big_guy305

Bam with a 3 lol

Reality Czech

Bam with a 3 seconds before I was gonna knock him for his lousy 6 points, lol

heat for life

hes doing good job on joker

Reality Czech

We need him to score to have a chance

heat for life

bam doing nice job on joker

Big_guy305

Jimmy got so many commercials 😳

Big_guy305

Rozier was looking like wade with that euro.

Reality Czech

There were some here that questioned why we were happy to get Rozier. Some of those same people are on the bandwagon now. Better late than never, I guess.

Big_guy305

I never understood why some of the people questioned it. He’s instant upgrade over Lowry, even in his bad games.

heat for life

double joke let kcp shoot

Bout30man

Add me to the list that does not get Wright being on the bench. One player ahead of him that shouldn’t be is HH. HH is the oppo of our no d players, no O, and Wright can do almost anything better than HH. We have to use our best or we will lose. And if we use our best players, we actually could beat the Nuggets.

Big_guy305

Honestly I rather play Wright over patty.

Bout30man

Me too. Patty does have a nice three ball, but time has taken its toll on him.

heat for life

hh d is so goodon ddont mind him getting minutos.he can shoot and score just doesnt look to score to much 30.hed be in my rotation.patty mills would not be in it.he was playing with duncan parker

heat for life

jamal cain more nba ready than shnozic

Big_guy305

I agree but won’t get heavy pt until next year or year after.

heat for life

hes as good as hh on d.great cutter to the rim.better player than jovic

Big_guy305

Only down 6 while shooting 13 percent from 3.

heat for life

jim doesnt even get shot off wtf

heat for life

jimmy just aint got it no more good player yes great no

Bout30man

Again, true. But, he still has that will. He is still a magnificent player to get to root for. When all is said and done he will have been my all time favorite Heat player.

heat for life

what d wade is the miami heat 30,butlers a 5 year rental

Bout30man

My view is that Wade had great players with him. Jimmy carried us much more on his back. Maybe I am just a Jimmy fan.

heat for life

terry wtf was that pass jeez

heat for life

spobot the jovic experiment is ova

heat for life

hh lockdown d on murray
