    Don't know if it's because Wade is back and Winslow was lacking a veteran presence to be in his ear, but I can definitely live with his play recently.

    I do think this has a lot to do with it for the young guys that were here when he left.

    Wade fixed Winslow, he may have fixed Whiteside.

    Whiteside definitely shouldn't be shooting more 3s lol. Sorry but he isn't AD or Cousins unfortunately.
    RIP lol, please!

    And I agree Dade County, Whiteside should put those numbers up every game.
    RIP lol, please!

    Guys Wade didn't fix anything. 3 of our last 5 games have been against crappy teams and the Lakers and Phily are young teams. Those guys should be putting up good numbers on teams like these.

    I wouldn't say he necessarily fixed anything but he's getting more comfortable and back into Heat shape with every game which has helped everyone be better. That's been evident in the last 4 games for sure as you can see how much better he's looked. He's made people around him better and helped others elevate their game. He's probably been a good influence on some of the younger guys too.

    I wouldn't say he fixed them, but definitely has a positive influence on them.

    Whiteside is capable of hitting 3s consistently. Spo just doesn't play him that way. Just like no one thought Wade could hit a 3, goes to Chicago and starts playing from 3 point land. Swap D'Antoni as the coach and you wouldn't recognize this team with the same personnel. It's just a product of the system and philosophy being used. That's not a knock on Spo either.

    By consistently, what % and on how many attempts are you meaning?

    Mid .300s in first season where he attempts 3-4 per game.

    This video is lulzy, but yeah he has the range with ease and a very nice smooth arc: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l5qb46l4NLw

    I'll look for other videos later. I've seen him do it in warm ups, etc. Since he doesn't attempt any in the NBA, I'll have to find some of his overseas stuff.

    We're also talking about a guy who shoots just 69% from FT.

    I'm not saying he can't. But all the other "3PT shooting big men" that shoot a respectable 3PT% shoot better from FT.

    Well, this was an interesting search. Similarly crappy career FT% centers with at least 50 attempts from 3 this season.

    http://www.espn.com/nba/player/stats...dewayne-dedmon

    I think my expectation is realistic.

    I don't understand. Are you trolling?

    Dedmon shooting 77% from FT% in the year he started taking 3s, Maker and Collins no where near 3-4 attempts per night.

    Are you looking for exceptions or being realistic? Before HW takes 3s I'd task him with improving FT% to 75%.

    So, using your logic, Dedmon should not have been allowed to shoot 3's because his previous season he was at 69% from the line. So where in you chicken-egg scenario do you give the player the green light?

    Maker and Collins no where near 3-4 attempts per night.
    Your confused because you took 2 different posts and merged them in your head. In one post I a made a guess on attempts. In the other I went and looked up the stats for more accurate numbers.
