i dont think the heat are that bad, beside the fact of them being my favorite team, i think they could easily be better than the cavs and sixers. if wade is up to par then we have better team than them both imo. the only thing were missing is a true center, but who knows maybe haslem could play center effectivly or maglore could become decent. we have a better bench than both teams. as long as were not the 8th or 7th seed goin in to the playoffs we could go far.

The Cavs should be waay higher then 6th. At least 3rd, easy.

explain why. They havent got better and other teams like the raptors and sixers who were close to them last year have added superstar players to play alongside with there stars

dude. Wake up. If the Heat go 42-40, you should be ecstatic. They won 15 games last year. They have no point or center. They are a couple years away from contending at least.

MiamiHeat
10-04-2008, 09:39 PM

haha please
they won 22 games last year
you guys should be glad to win at least 30..

It's not like they got better

Kevin Love sucks *** he's a Christian Laettner in the making...:cool:

Either them or OKC is going to be the worst in the league...

It looks about right for a preseason poll

I think Portland,philly and cleveland may hit 3/4 more wins

Lakers probably 57/58 wins

You know I got give Portland 50 anyway, it's my team

good poll

Haha. That's a joke. The Heat should be happy to get in the playoffs.

I think Love will have a better season than most rookies...he seems like a very level headed kid. Mayo on the other hand is all hype, Beasley is good but has character questions, and Rose could have a Paul-esque rookie year, but als a Jay Williams esque...which is what I'm betting on. Rose will average around 12 points and 6 assists.

Love will prolly not put of big stats but he will definately make an impact. Brook Lopez will also be a great asset to the Nets.

you guys should be glad to win at least 30..

with an automatic 20-10 player, Foye healthy, Mike Miller on board, Kevin Love as a rook, and progression of young players, we will be fine. They finished the year 17-26, which translates to 32 wins for a season. I think you can expect better than that this season.

How am I a hater for hating haters?...that doesn't even make sense...I only hate Mavs haters and that's it....a hater means you hate every team everybody which I don't.

WTF? Portland has one more win then Phx? Why? Portland wont be that good to be the #5 seed for at least another year when all there rookies get adjusted. I dont see phoenix being #6 behind Portland! I love how everyone is doubting Phoenix this year.

Solid list, but I think the Mavs will win more games than the Clippers, the same can be said for Denver. I also think the Heat will do better next season.

Well if the Wolves do better this year the Heat will do wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy better, we have Wade a superstar consider by many top3-5 player 100% healthy, i know u saw the Olympics. Then we got a proven all star SF in Shawn Marion that can give you 15 and 10 , and you add #2pick which many people think he is the best player in the draft and also you add a 6'7PG that is motivated to prove alot of people that he is back, and a steal of the draft in Mario Chalmers, the only thing i must say the C position is messing us up, BUT i know Blount has been working but still not good enough, we added Magloire which isn't decent but could give us good minutes and also a blocker in Joel Anthony he has shown alot of improvement. And in the offseason we added a 3pt specialist in James Jones, we have Deaquan Cook a future 3pt master. Also we have Dorell Wright which could be his breakout year but has decent stats for being in the bench , and also we have Haslem can give you 9-10 rpg I think if we get a good C we might go deep in the playoffs, but as of right now i think we could make the playoffs and we are a 7-8seed team and anything could happen in the playoffs.

disagree. I think the Heat win 35 games this season. They have 3 good players, one bench player, a coach who has no experience, and gaping holes everywhere else. I am not claiming the Wolves will have a better record, only the season will tell that.

and btw, I am fully aware of every player in the Heats lineup. I actually follow every team in the NBA, not just my own. I still think they are lacking in a ton of places.
