Whiteside looking healthy. They're all playing with much more confidence. Time to upset Michael.

"At the age of 34, he’s having his worst field goal percentage season in eight years, raising the question of how long a guard without a three-point shot can delay the aging process and remain the primary hub on offense. The problem with Wade is that it’s hard for him to be a secondary player when he can’t stretch the floor - opposing defenses don’t have to guard him when he’s playing off the ball and his usage rating (32.2) is as high as ever."

 

"With reserve guard Tyler Johnson out for at least two months following shoulder surgery, they don’t have a single player in their rotation shooting above 37% from 3 and they have five different perimeter players shooting below 34%. "

This article is garbage. He offers no real context to what really is happening. It's like he looked up a few stats and just threw the article together to fit his narrative.




BTW... Chris Bosh will be in this years 3-point shooting contest! happy.gif

This may not be a popular opinion, but this is when we need to move Whiteside. After a game like this his trade value is enormous. Need to face the facts that we won't go anywhere in the playoffs without shooters.

At this point the only player I'd "CONSIDER" trading Whiteside for is Demarcus Cousins. But I like the way Whiteside fits in with this team, so I wouldn't even feel comfortable with that trade.

Bosh for Blake?? Ummm yeah!

We won't get much because of how cheap he is. We can't take much in that'd be worth it imo

its not a popular opinion... because its a stupid thing to say. having shooters but no one to defend the paint leaves u where u started... except centers are harder to come by.

Who needs to make three's to win.... Not the Heat!!! laugh.gif

Great win to finish off that crazy long road schedule. Whiteside and Bosh off the pick and roll was kinda dope. Plus that Wade dunk pimp.gif

And trading Whiteside at this point of the season is makes sense. Dead that crazy talk.

we dont need to trade for shooters... need to create/mold them. some of you still dont get it lol

I agree. If you can't find a shooter in free agency, you develop one. Crazy as it might seem now. Justice Winslow could develop into a pretty good 3 point shooter. Case in point Kawhi Leonard...

It aint like the Heat haven't developed shooters before. Keith Askins, Dorrell Wright, Mario Chalmers, Daequan Cook....

You still with this laugh.gif you don't think wade or other players practice shooting 3s? Just because you put up 1000 3s a day dosent mean your gonna become a lights out shooter. If you don't have that skill set you just don't have that skill set. If it was that easy to just practice them and you develop into a shooter everybody would.do it. You make it seem easier then it is.

Most of those guys were decent shooters already. We're not gonna make a guy like TJ a lights out shooter it just doesn't happen like that. Of course he could get better and improve but he's not gonna become a knock down guy.

u downplay players skills and u also operate on extremes. u act like i said if they practice everyone will shoot 50%+ from the 3. im not saying with enough practice everyone can become steph curry. but damn and least become a DECENT shooter. we have no decent shooters. and trading for one isnt the answer. dragics contract has already come back to bite us. and whiteside gonna need money. now u got dudes suggesting to trade the best center we got (and the best defending center in the league) for shooters... when u can just mold them? nah.

Defense is key and Whiteside is the Master. And he can shoot. All around great player. I wouldn't trade him for Cousins of D Jordan. Sunday will be a great Match up.

post #1794 of 2814
Wade and Bosh are playing out of their minds as of late. Good to see them earning their keep still. That Javale McGee-esque block/steal by Whiteside though? sick.gifsick.gifsick.gif
post #1795 of 2814
Not my money, but if I'm Miami there's no way Whiteside walks. He is the future for organization. There aren't many big men who protect like that and you can't let him walk. Also, what's the deal with McBob, and having all big men in fold, does the rotation get jacked up because someone has to be the odd man out and we know it isn't going to be Whiteside, STAT held it down, and McBob spaces the floor, but the game is only 48 minutes and someone has to sit.

Trying to mold the guys we have now into shooters mid season might get us to the second round of the playoffs. If you're happy with that then everything you say makes sense.

Edit

I hope other GMs think like you so we can get more for him in a trade.

Trading Whiteside for shooters would make us a treadmill, at best

 

Rather build around the dominant talent and accept our hand

I guess what I'm trying to say is if Riley were to make a trade with Whiteside for shooters I would understand the move. Whiteside is an incredible talent and real fun to watch control the paint. It would be tough to watch him go but I'm more suspect on big men and injuries than small forwards or guards. So we sign him to a max deal and he becomes the next Dwight Howard...

Can't win without big men. GS is not running through the league w/o Bogut. Not ideal but we just have to accept our hand
