heat for life

Dalton more fly than ty

2qbn

You already complain that the team is too light. You would have had a heart attack if they added Knecht

heat for life

Jnicho just emailed me said we should have taken dalton

2qbn

Knecht to Lakers. Great spot for him. He should be happy he slid a bit

Big_guy305

Wow Dalton sliding, maybe lakers pick him

2qbn

I think that would be a good spot for him, especially with a former shooter as coach

Big_guy305

Spot on sir

heat for life

Why is richard jeff on draft show wheres seth greenberg

Big_guy305

I wonder who we gonna trade for now.

heat for life

Nobody knows except pat

heat for life

paul george going to phily

heat for life

knicks get bridges we add ware ok

2qbn

You should really go start your own blog with these amazing takes.

heat for life

Little frustratedTeams making major moves last few years

heat for life

Will you read it?

Reality Czech

Hey, in summer league, you don’t just work on your game, you have to practice negativity to be ready for the season.

2qbn

Damn. This could be an All NBA in negativity type season at this rate.

HHHFAN4Life

Love how tall you and 2qbn are so nonchalant and optimistic. See if y’all are like that when they are barely above .500 again next year in the playin again and the star player playing 50-60 games. Trashing moves heat rivals are making Knicks this year Celtics last year and as currently constructed are miles better than Mia. Not about being negative but I thought everyone here agreed it’s not a good idea to run it back? Negative to want the team to get better cause the teams they will need to beat are getting better? Or everyone should be like y’all? Hope and pray for another miracle when it doesn’t work like that

Reality Czech

C’mon man. We’ve read each other’s comments. You know my preference was to trade Butler. But I was only dealing with the reality that if Butler didn’t demand a trade, that he would be staying. Clearly, they need to make more moves. I’m very curious what those moves will be. Ware is a good start, but, yes, they need more.

Reality Czech

Btw, I also wrote in February that the Heat should at least explore trades for Martin and Butler. Martin because we’d get nothing for him when he opted out. Butler because of what we may have gotten back (my suggestion at the time was OKC).

Reality Czech

An athletic big who can hit the 3. Perfect.

Big_guy305

And rebounds with shot blocking and rim protection.

Big_guy305

Imagine this lineup Terry, Jimmy, jovic/jjj, bam,ware.

heat for life

Is ware gonna start or back up bam

Big_guy305

Probably back up at first.

ZechMerquise

ware will probably spend a lot of time at Skyforce

Big_guy305

That depends on if resign love or not, also will Orlando get minutes over him?

Reality Czech

I don’t think so. Might spend a little time there, but I think he was drafted to be on the court sooner rather than later.

2qbn

Been saying it! Let’s go HEAT!

Reality Czech

Solid pick!!

Zac

Looks like it’s Ware. Can’t say I know a ton about him. It’ll be nice if Miami isn’t just straight abused in non Bam minutes.

heat for life

Bams not a center

heat for life

Predictions?

Big_guy305

Dalton, ware , or de silva.

Reality Czech

George?

Big_guy305

Ware

2qbn

Oh this is when you don’t have one? lol

heat for life

I have no idea who any of the remaining players are but the heat need a whole lotta help.Trades are gonna need to be made

Reality Czech

Knecht, at 23, like Da Silva fit the Heat Jaquez timeline

2qbn

I never thought he would be there. What do the Heat think?

2qbn

Dalton is not the pick for the Wizards. I wonder how the Heat feel right now lol

Big_guy305

If we get Dalton then Robinson gone for sure

2qbn

Or we just shoot the lights out

Big_guy305

Is his d good?

2qbn

I guess it’s a crapshoot now on who we pick. No idea if they thought Knecht would be there so no idea how they feel, but at this point De Silva is probably the odds on favorite along with McCain. Bub Carrington a dark horse

2qbn

I was one pick early on Carrington

Big_guy305

Who yall want Dalton, ware, or de silva ?

2qbn

Big_guy305

Carter could go to either of the next 2 teams

2qbn

He gone

Big_guy305

Dalton needs to get picked up

2qbn

Damn there goes Topic

2qbn

Damn this is going to be close.

Big_guy305

Too close

Reality Czech

Somebody dropping

2qbn

Yup. We’re going to know in about two more picks

Big_guy305

Topic, carter, matas, ware.

Last edited 16 days ago by Big_guy305
Reality Czech

I would be thrilled with any of those

Big_guy305

Dammm right ✅️

2qbn

I could see Topic being there before Carter. This is playing out nicely

Reality Czech

As long as they don’t pick from left field

2qbn

But it would make me trust them as they have been on a nice run the last few years making the pick. I have to see an all out bust for me to question lol

Reality Czech

True, but if Carter, Ware, Topic, Knecht are there…..

Big_guy305

Even with Dalton still out there?

Big_guy305

Edey pairing up with jjj

2qbn

Told yall he wasn’t going to be there

Reality Czech

Wow, I humbly stand corrected!

Big_guy305

Rob going to the wolves wow

2qbn

Oh damn I did not realize that

Big_guy305

Spurs Traded him away for future picks

2qbn

Spurs will rise again. They have some young talent

Reality Czech

I’m not sorry that the Heat is not going to get Dillingham.

Big_guy305

Topic is dropping

2qbn

I would take him and wait a year.

Big_guy305

Hell yes 🙌

Big_guy305

Would you take him over carter ?

Reality Czech

I really like Carter

heat for life

Wheres our hhh gm the coolest gm in usa

Big_guy305

Ayton might get traded.

heat for life

Clingans gonna be a Bustice winslow

2qbn

Feel free to call out who will be good

Reality Czech

Exactly!! I give props to anyone who says – in the next day or so – that we should’ve drafted x instead of y. If someone says it after we’re Several months into the season, I’ll call bullshit.

heat for life

Edey ate clingan up in champ game,Edey shot right over him.Man vs boy

2qbn

And yet when it came down to the pro’s this guy was picked first.

heat for life

Last heat knicks trade only one ever riley for 1st rn pick.Think we got better of that

Reality Czech

Detroit could’ve traded down and get Holland

Big_guy305

Yes you’re right about that.

heat for life

This is not the lebron carmelo,bosh wade draft .

2qbn

My guess is that’s the last one you watched 😉

Reality Czech

There’s something called a remote control in case someone doesn’t wanna watch this awful draft. And what are the odds by the time November December rolls around, someone will be saying “man, I wish we could’ve gotten that guy”?

heat for life

Yanks mets rain delay i/m back

heat for life

lol

heat for life

Been watching any marlins games?

2qbn

Wow! Holland went on pure talent. That article on the site looks pretty funny now

heat for life

Do we want julius randle?

Big_guy305

Depends on how much it cost to get him.

heat for life

Hed be the third best player on team easily

heat for life

He gets out of bed hes 20 10 guy.Not sure hes a good team player though

2qbn

I don’t see Pat trading with the Knicks just like I don’t see the Knicks trading with the Heat. Too many other teams lol

Big_guy305

True that.

heat for life

when was the last heat knicks trade

heat for life

Who are these guys what a weak ass draft
