Bad fit imo, Clifford's and Stephenson clearly weren't on the same page. He played 61 games while healthy and only started 25... plus he just wasn't a good fit with the roster. I'm not saying he's a star but he is a special player and the type of glue/role player you would want on a championship team. I think he's a perfect fit in almost every way imaginable for us (pro's beat cons, at least). He wants to win at all cost, we may lack the motivation. All our facilitators are the score first type, his unselfishness (on offense) could help open our's in a major way imo... we can't ride Wade's coattail's in the playoffs and hope to be successful. This roster's too loaded with offensive players to go out like that. Spo is the type of coach to let him do his thing as long as he brought the energy and effort to the table, he's not as reactionary as most coaches. He(LS) might be the right player, at the right price, in the right age... opposed to us tearing apart our roster and assets for a washed superstar like Melo/Joe Johnson/Howard to do whatever

 

Probably our best case scenario imo, Clippers/Hornets can't afford him the role he wants- I think it's just waiting for him here. but my opinion

it's my fault, I probably shouldn't have brought it knowing that most Heat fans or fans in general don't like him lol. I've heard some pitter patter about how Clippers have wanted Deng and also put Smith/Lance on the block

For Deng? No but I'm in the minority in thinking I would take a cheap flier on the guy.

Granger was also hated by Heat fans but he played here

That's cool

 

If anything happens, it needs to be some or one of either Bird, Amar'e, or Stokes being traded. wasting roster space for the hell of it, like we can afford the luxury to do so

a lot of players has have off seasons once traded to teams they didnt want to play for. yall saw rondo. dude disappeared once he left the celtics but he said he didnt want to play for that team he was on (cant remember) now hes on a different team and doing what hes supposed to. lance said the same thing about the teams he was on. he dont wanna play there. but him in miami would be a GOOD look. thats instant spark off the bench as long as he stays out of trouble (which he clearly would since he hasnt been in trouble in a long time already)

But isn't GG already in that role off the bench? Lance is a gamble at this point.

Any trade is a gamble, I'd take that risk and start him at the 3.

I'd start Winslow over lance, and that is strictly for defense because Winslow isn't a scorer just yet.

I wanted to see Winslow start but I'm not sure we want a rookie in that position right now, i just don't know. I think he'd probably fit in better with the starters than Deng and Deng better with the bench than the starters but still... If we could get Lance... I think him and Wade- as long as they could put everything aside- could work very well together. They are two of the best wing passers in the league and I think they'd click regardless of chemistry and give us something to mold our offense around. Wade and Goran are two ball dominant score first guards who's games are vastly different, we knew coming in that this isn't a roster that really suits his game but Goran right now isn't very compatible with anyone in our starting line-up (him and Bosh still a work in progress). If we're going to be successful, Goran's going to have to become a feature of the offense instead of a main piece like we hoped. Getting someone who can help us get the most out of Wade and get him to buy into this team is our best case scenario... Wade/Lance running the offensive with the weapons we have should make us elite imo but the trade probably doesn't happen, so...

Like for real, why can't STAT get some run? Give him some spot minutes at least.

That pass, catch and finish with Wade and Bosh. So nice.
post #1428 of 2814
Doug Collins was just speaking the truth. Championship-level defense with a poor offense. Still waiting on Goran to turn it on. More of the same. Glad we won.

We. Need. Shooters.

I just don't know how we can get them. Riley's hand was forced with resigning wade and dragic which tied a lot of money up. And to save room for whitesides contract. He needs to do something before the deadline or we will not make a decent playoff run. If we can get to the ECF with shooters we could take down Cleveland in 6-7 games if healthy*

we didnt HAVE to get dragic. it was a ditch effort and the payoff still remains to be seen. but dragic is NOT panning out and has not panned out thus far. its looking more and more like dropping norris and napier was a bad decision.

Dragic has been playing well recently before both the hand injuries where he sat out a few games. Then just last night he had a clutch 3 to put the game away with 22 to add on.

This loss is credited to Spolstra. Players were doing their job. He didn't make the right moves in the 2nd half to keep the lead for an easy win.

Why would you shoehorn Amare in the game when they needed a spark? Terrible loss. Probably the worse of the season with all things considered.
