You sound like the Whiteside supporters that pop up every now and then when he has a good game. Good job to Spo though we finally played the way he was talking about all summer.

Huge game from Wade and Bosh came up clutch too. Winslow played great defense. Really the only complaint I have is Green who was terrible again and looked lost on defense.

Well its kinda simple. Johnson isn't a PG. At all.

When he have a PG running the offense, guys can get into their normal roles and rhythm.

But seriously, why is Green still shooting? Bench his *** already.

Always Mr. Negative Nancy around here. Missing two starters, team is banged up, on the road in a B2B and you still find something to complain about.

Wade and Bosh played great and Winslow showing you promise maybe or he just a POS still? Whatever....

It's easy to defend Spo when he's got Wade and Bosh to bail him out. Let's pretend he deserves the credit for Wade and Bosh taking over 4th quarters.

WaDe03
01-27-2016, 12:51 AM
Also Wade is the best SG in the league. Harden Butler and Klay may put up big numbers more consistently throughout the year due to age but when they go head to head Wade usually always outplays them. Give me Wade over any SG in the league in a playoff series.

Will they trade us Teletovic for McRoberts now?

Man I get that we won and on a back to back, but I feel this team plays with no urgency at times. We have Wade and Bosh and they both played great, but we should not be letting a crappy Nets team even be close.

Honestly I feel like we need someone else to handle the offensive side of this team. I am fine with Spo brings in on the defensive side, and from what I can tell the players all like him. But hes been in the league for like 6/7 years now? and I still think his offensive game plans usually suck. I know someone will bring up our offense with Lebron, but come on its with a top 5 player to even play the game on your team. Without him our offense goes through some bad droughts.

Miami coach Erik Spoelstra said the staff needed to put a straightjacket on Dragic to keep him from playing too early on a strained left calf, and that might not have been all that much of a joke. Dragic was not happy with the team’s decision to hold him out against the Nets.

“I’m ready to play,” Dragic said. “I would already be playing if it was (up to) me. I’m doing everything. Everything. I’m trying to make sure everything is fine. I felt great the last two days, but they still think (I need) those two extra to make sure everything is fine.”
Dragic said he argued adamantly with Spoelstra and trainer Jay Sabol in favor of playing, but was told no.
“I would not say angry, but I’m disappointed– I don’t know how to say it,” Dragic said. “I want to get back out there with my teammates as quick as possible. But for sure I need to obey their opinion, because Jay knows about those injuries more than I do.”

Well, good to know Dragić has that competitive fire and wanted to be back out there to help his team win.

I hope he can ignite the team on this stretch run to the all-star break

Over the last 3 games starting, Stoudemire is averaging 8/8.

I think what that says is that Whiteside averaging a double double is nothing that special. He needs to learn one on one defense before the HEAT can pay him big bucks long term.

You can plug a JaVale McGee into the HEAT and he's probably averaging 9/9/2 blk 60% for like $8M-$10M next summer. No need to get desperate and overpay Whiteside if he wants way too much.

The last three games have been Wade's best stretch of games this season.....But overall I still think hes way behind where he should be if we want to compete in the playoffs, He needs to be more consistent with his shot selection, play better defense, push the pace more and move without the ball better......But I do like what Ive seen the past 3 games, its definitely refreshing

Im on "Josh McRoberts Island" apparently......I dont get why it seems like Im the only one in this forum who likes it when hes on the court.....What frustrates me about McBob is he gets injured too often for long periods of time....but when hes on the court I like his defensive rotations, his overall communication, his ball movement, his player movement, his ball handling skills, his passing, his basketball IQ....like I get he hasn't shot very well and makes weird decisions at times but his ability to handle and pass, his PnR "roll man" skills, his ability to play the high-post and elbow make up for his recent lack of shooting

That brings me to my next point:

I want McRoberts at the 5 more...A line up featuring McRoberts, Deng, Winslow, Wade, Dragic or McRoberts, Deng, Winslow, Udrih, Dragic would open up space on offense without losing much on defense....we would lose rebounding but our defensive rotations would still be sound...I truly think a lot of people underrate McRoberts ability to pass, move without the ball, and handle the ball....He doesn't hang out in the post, he does most his work out of the PnR or working from the Elbows or High-post, he sets good screens then rolls or pops out with purpose, he has other skills to create space even if he cant shoot (ie Bogut)

But dont worry.....I dont think Spo will go to it when Whiteside comes back, but with Whiteside out and McRoberts in, I'm hoping he uses McBob at the 5 more, it was one of our best played lineup's in the win AT Milwaukee

The Udrih/Dragic back-court combination wasn't played at all in the win AT Milwaukee.......someone needs to explain to me what the **** Spo does sometimes? Not even 1 minute did Dragic/Udrih play together...the less Green plays and the more Udrih plays the better, thats just common sense to me

01-31-2016, 08:39 AM
^^^ I also think McRoberts is pretty good when he plays. I can understand why so many Heat fans have become frustrated with his long absences - and
lack of shooting when we need shooting so badly - but that doesn't mean he isn't bringing a lot to the table in other areas like passing and defense.

We've waited so long for him to pay dividends that I'm kind of hoping they don't trade him at this point.

And if they do trade Whiteside, I think you're right that McRoberts could help provide some depth at the 5.

P.S. The Bucks' Antetokounmpo is nasty!!! Wish we could trade for him.

I love everything he does except he seems to only hunt for passes and rarely looks to open up the floor for himself and his passing with looks at the basket. He will pass up an open shot to keep the ball swinging, but the ball swings back into a player who doesn't have as much of an open look as he had the previous pass. If he starts taking advantage off those looks, it makes him a very dangerous factor to our spacing and ball movement.

beasted86
01-31-2016, 01:47 PM
He has the skills that could benefit us, but his rebounding is putrid, he passes up open shots and is clanking bricks on the ones he takes.

He's like Boris Diaw's crippled brother they keep in the attic.
