OFFICIAL 2016 @HEAT PLAYOFF THREAD - Page 21
hes always guilty!!!!!! bruh never let napier really shine. once napier went down, it was a loss. now hes back up and BALLIN in the summer league... so what do we do? give him a pink slip. mannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn I CANT! then we got goober mario at the helm free to make all the mistakes he can come up with while he dreams at night. chalmers goes to sleep and dreams of what plays he can **** up tomorrow. His favorite food is an apple turnover. chalmers plays like he does just so he can get his 2k rating down.

lol, I hope Zoran catches on somewhere, looks like he'll be waived. Probably better for him, he isn't a scrub so I think he'll catch on somewhere... at least he doesn't have to live under his brother's shadow anymore. Still haven't made my peace with the Shabazz trade but if Heat are still pursuing a Rio trade like some reports are saying, I hope we can pull off one more steal

UD at the 5? i dont like that lol. jrich? do we even officially have him? tj as a pg? he gonna have to sharpen up a bit then. i thought hed go back to his natural position of sg this season. guess not.
im still salty bout shabazz. we cut his wings too soon. and how pathetic is rio that we cant even give him away.... im telling u, rio has no pride. he KNOWS everyone hates him. he KNOWS we wanna get rid of him and have wanted to for years...and he still doesnt improve to prove anybody wrong. dude just happy to be here
Well this is just for the purpose of putting them somewhere. We all know positions are just a label in the Heat's system. I do think that JRich and TJ are being molded to play both PG and SG though. I think ultimately that's why we got rid of Shabazz. He wasn't what they wanted on the defensive side. Once they got a good look at Richardson, it was a done deal for Bazz.
He's shown that if his shot is not dropping he's pretty much useless. Still makes silly turnovers, fouls players at the wrong time, and makes decisions on the court that leave you... well Spo does it best....
Let me start off saying that I completely agree. Spoelstra would be the first one to say he needs to improve as the coach. But I would also like to say is they players themselves need to step up as well.
Having said that at the end of the day, the whole organization didn't get it done from Riley on down. After they got exposed in the Finals and LeBron left Riley and company tried to recover and stay competitive they best way they could. They failed... but in that failure they have put themselves in a position to really be competitive next season. Will Eric Spoelstra's plan to play faster yield positive results. Will he be able to win despite any injuries to key players this year? We shall see. This next season will show and prove who this coach and this team really are. Are they contenders or pretenders.
I think Rio is a better player when he has a player like LeBron or a Wade to create opportunities for him. If you watch that video you'll see Rio scored 25 playing off of LeBron and Wade. When he is asked to create for himself or be a play maker he falls short. We now know he'll ever be THAT guy. That's not his strength. He's probably better suited as a shot maker and a backup PG. He's also a pretty good off ball defender and can create turnovers.
If the Heat do keep him he might flourish behind Dragic and Wade this upcoming season. Spo would have to make sure there are other play makers on the court tho.
As for J Rich, that dude could be a problem. An atheltic defensive minded 2 who can handle the rock at the 1 while having the ability to score and make the open 3. The rebirth of Eddie Jones... all day.
