  • Miami needs a legit 2-way player at SG. Herro isn’t that guy. He can’t handle the pressure offensively and his defense sucks.
  • Butler’s time has come and gone. He’s not worth an enormous extension!
  • I hope Martin opts out of his contract. Low IQ and inconsistent.
  • If Spo isn’t going to use Bryant, trade him.
  • If Highsmith isn’t going to develop a consistent offensive game, he’s not rotation material. His only value will be as a late game sub to hold a lead. Re-sign him on veterean’s minimum and see if he can develop his offense.
  • Keep Bam, Rozier, Jaquez, Jovic, Love, Duncan.
  • Re-sign Wright, if cheap.
  • Re-sign JRich, if cheap.
  • Trade Butler and Herro for the best SG and PF/C we can get. Throw Bryant in there too.

atl gonna get rid of trae

Big_guy305

Who you want Trae or Murray?

heat for life

murray anyday

heat for life

herro has been inconsistent injured no d guy his whole career,he can get hot and occasionally look good but just as often go 4 for 14.he scores because he shoots so much.your not gonna get much for him sunman ,maybe package him with jim

Reality Czech

Last 4 years Lillard averaged 57 games, Herro averaged 57 also.
This season Lillard shot 42.4%/35.4%, Herro 44.1%/39.6%.
I am not suggesting Herro is better than Lillard, only that his recent numbers are equal or better. Lillard had a higher ppg primarily because he got to the line a lot more than Herro. Lillard apg as 7.0 to Herro 4.5.

heat for life

theres a video showing that jrue pushed caleb in the back which propelled him into tatum .so i take it back that wasnt dirty jrue pushed him

StevenUrkel

He barely touched him. Claiming that he pushed him into Tatum is ridiculous. Martin was already running full speed towards Tatum, and the slight touch by Holiday did absolutely nothing to change his direction or momentum.

heat for life

really hard to say how much the push effected the collision

heat for life

You don’t box out by flying into the action ass side first.
He took aim at JT and turned his ass into JT’s back at full throttle.
He was not even looking in the direction of the backboard.
Not a rebound attempt.
Not a basketball play.

SunManFromDogBone

I looked at it several times in slow motion. It looked worse at regular speed. When you see it in slow motion it was not a dirty play. Martin immediately tried to help Tatum up. I also saw Tatum tell Martin he was alright later when Martin fouled him again. If it had been a glagrant foul, it would have been called.

StevenUrkel

Yes, because the refs are infallible. If they didn’t call it, then it can’t possibly be true!

heat for life

refs never miss calls lol

heat for life

martin should be suspended for that

Big_guy305

Shut up bro it wasn’t that serious. That’s a flagrant 1 at most.

Soildrift

You STfU HeatPunk

Big_guy305

No one even talking to you troll, go soil your pants somewhere else loser.

heat for life

a bulls fan

heat for life

flying your pointed A#$ into someones back going up is not boxing out!
dirty play yes .suspension warranted prob not tatum just shook it off like it ws nothing.if he got hurt martin def suspended

Reality Czech

Absolutely. And he finally realized it above

Big_guy305

I peep lol

JoshM

Yeah, you don’t make those fouls. Wouldn’t be surprised if that goes until review and he is out next game.

heat for life

agree if he did that to me id be at hosp and im 6 1 215

Big_guy305

Next game we will be better and herro will be too .

heat for life

holiday and white are guarding herro btw.bam setting some great screens though

Big_guy305

Well if can’t score 20 on them. All that means Is he will get traded sooner then later.

heat for life

herro might get 20 on 25 shots.ill always say heat better w/o herro.nobodys changing me on that.dudes volume shooter plays no d like his teammate.cant have one way players on your team .when hes getting 20 his opponent getting 25

heat for life

if we win a game id be happy

heat for life

dirty play martin

Reality Czech

Hustle play. Even reached to help him up.

heat for life

out of control dirty play

heat for life

u cant be serious rc

Reality Czech

Lol, you finally figured out it wasn’t despite insisting it was.

StevenUrkel

“Hustle play” my ***.

Big_guy305

One thing for sure going forward is that love needs more then just 13 mins a game.

heat for life

33

Big_guy305

Spo ain’t giving him that much.

heat for life

whats he saving him for.3 games season prob over

Big_guy305

Idk spo mind is more complex then a puzzle.

heat for life

delon bam love jjj hh my starters next game

heat for life

bam love gotta play together heat too small spobot

heat for life

delon wrights gotta start play 40 mins

Reality Czech

You do know that’s not gonna happen

heat for life

39 off the bench lol

JoshM

Scoring those points when the game is long gone holds no value.

heat for life

hes been shooting good lately though

Big_guy305

Down 13… imagine if herro, duncan , and Caleb played better.

Reality Czech

On point BG

heat for life

when has caleb and dunc had a good game .herros capable but holiday white wont let that happen

Big_guy305

Caleb was a beast last year in the ecf, so I’m pretty sure he can have 1 or 2 good games. Duncan I ain’t sure because he hasn’t been right since the injuries, but if he can have one game Making 5 3’s while everyone playing well. That would be good enough to win a game.

heat for life

if if if aint happening calebs last good game when duncs last good game ??.gotta be realistic big.wish i could say that can happen it aint

Reality Czech

Bright spots, Delon, Jaquez, Jovic.

Reality Czech

In fact, I think Delon should be signed to a nice team friendly 2 year contract.

Big_guy305

I was just thinking the same thing a couple of days ago, we could really use a player like him, if we’re plagued with injuries again. They can let patty walk tho.

heat for life

bam was good to

Reality Czech

Yeah, not bad. We need 25/12 from him these games.

heat for life

jovic was 3 for 9 -25 made a few good def plays.missed to many shots

Reality Czech

He did a lot of good things other than shooting

heat for life

yes but 3 for 9 aint gonna cut it

heat for life

delon wright wow do u think u can start him next game spobot

heat for life

panthers win

Reality Czech

Yay

Big_guy305

We let Boston have this game, next game we will be better, and herro will be better too hopefully.

heat for life

we let boston have this game sounds like we let them win it.there just better

Big_guy305

They’re better, but we could of provided better effort then this. Plus I was being sarcastic.

heat for life

we tried big just not good enough guys gave 100%,u can beat chi with bam ty not beating boston

Reality Czech

I don’t think we gave 100%. With 100%, you have to have better efficiency. Too many players didn’t.

Big_guy305

Agreed I can give 3 guys off the top of my head that didn’t give 100 percent. Herro,duncan, Martin.

heat for life

not every guys gonna play good.we gave 100%.

StevenUrkel

Not 100% effort? But, but… Heat culture!

heat for life

panthers 2 tb 1 8 mins left

Bout30man

I am watching. Hard to watch Heat with the injuries. Not surprising outcome. It is going to be almost impossible to stay with the C’s.

Big_guy305

This game pretty much over…

Zac

It was over at the last time out. This is just Spo kicking the team while their down and forcing key guys in.

Big_guy305

True that .

Zac

I mean it’s time to get Bryant and Orob in the game. Just risking injury to one of your few remaining players in a lost game.

heat for life

come on dunc meet jalen at the rim

heat for life

dallas will beat lac

heat for life

dam this is hard to watch w/o jim and terry just not fair to us

Big_guy305

If we don’t get swept I would be happy with that outcome.

2qbn

Yup. We need JJJ and Niko to play as many games as possible, outcome be damned

Reality Czech

The Heat need to not worry about this game at all. They need to figure out what works. They need to have Herro and Duncan keep shooting to find their rhythm for the next games. Jovic needs to get big minutes, he looks good and has size. Need to give Bryant some run. Etc

Big_guy305

In my opinion spo needs to change it up a bit. You said Bryant needs some run and I agree. Spo needs to have at least 2 bigs on the floor at all times.

heat for life

were getting swept unfort

Reality Czech

NFL

heat for life

tatum brown not impressed with in playoffs 1 on 1 players to much

StevenUrkel

Lol…wut? Tatum had a triple double and they blew them out. You aren’t impressed and claim that a dude was only going 1-on-1 when he had a triple-double?
Okay, then…

heat for life

any team that would have addred porz and holiday would be very good .too bad pat couldnt pull it off

Zac

Pack it in, and keep fresh for Wednesday? Miami doesn’t have the horses to come back from 23 down.

Big_guy305

Spo waited too long 😩

heat for life

second unit in to big lead to overcome

Zac

Entire team is scared to shoot at this point.

heat for life

heat for life

i have to apologize to jjj im sorry rook that i doubted u..2 way player,take it to the hole.dont take sht .looking forward to your career here

Reality Czech

It’s what you do. I told you many times he’d be fine. Went through a rough patch. I told you but you see things and reach conclusions in very narrow windows.

heat for life

agree hes a baller sorry.

Zac

I know Kevin Love is old. But he’s +4, but only 5 minutes. Miami’s next best guy is -5, in 8 minutes. Spo put the aged veteran in please.

Big_guy305

I feel the same way, ik he is old, but spo needs to stop minutes restrictions bs. Love needs at least 25 mins a game in the playoffs, not 12 -15 minutes a game.

heat for life

tyler is unplayable hes getting bullied missing all his shots how can u play him,put delon in

heat for life

tatum finally drives to hoop

Big_guy305

Herro underwhelming so far .

Zac

Herro having a real rough one.
