    Yeah, but to be fair, I kind of always thought they were a second round playoff team at best, with an ECF appearance being a long shot. I just don't think they're good enough to compete with the Bucks, Raptors or Celtics.

    Jimmy always gives you a chance, but in a seven-game series, the more talented, better constructed teams are more than likely going to win. Next year, I think they could be that team, but I think they're one key piece away still. Gallo could have been the guy, but they didn't pull the trigger.

    Yea shouldíve got Gallo and went for it this year. Give him the extension he wanted and work the rest of it out in the future if you get commitment from a star in the summer. Itís a shame.

Just inexcusable. Even had a little cushion at the 2 seed and now weíre out of the running, itís been that bad lol. Whatever though it is what it is this is just year 1 in the road back to being a top contender as weíll be there either next year or the following year.
    Should still finish top 4 and get home court rd 1. Philly is free falling too and the Pacers are very meh.
    I think before the season started all Heat fans likely would've signed up for that this year. They're definitely set up for a bright future.

    Good point, guess Iím being too rough just disappointing because I see they could be so much better as it is. Oh well, this year has been HUGE for development and definitely a major step in the right direction

    I'm sure he'll be back. No point in rushing him though. Philly is basically stuck in that 4-5 seed.

    Iím sure heíll be back and youíre probably joking but in reality look at how much time winslow has missed from back problems this year. Hopefully we get more word on Simmons soon but it really could be serious, Iím expecting him back though.

    that and they have no timetable on a return and are still doing more tests.... how long is a bb player out if its a sports hernia?


    but yo if you listen to ewing were better without ben... who needs a guy that is a top 3 defender this year while putting up 16/8/8

    the worst part is ben was starting to really shine from the line... it was like 70 plus pct over the last 2 months.

    When I think of Bobby Portis I think of two things. 1) Sucker punching Mirotic and 2) A few years back when he was a Bull, he went hard to the rim and got the And 1 and celebrated like it was a Finals winner. The very next play he got embarrassed by getting his shot blocked into the 5th row.

    Except its Brand's call not Browns. Fun to see you continue to try to blame Brown though.
