I'm not going to state the obvious with how I feel about our head coach but I am proud of this team and love the heat regardless. I spend half the year in NYC and the other half in south Florida for work. But when I drive around NYC I proudly sport my Miami Heat tags on my car. Through and through I'm not disappointed in this team at all and in their effort in today's game. It just wasn't meant to be.

Barring injury this team would've made Bron Bron's team sweat. The only thing I can hope for this offseason is:

1) resign Whiteside
2) pray for Chris Bosh's health. He's a huge difference maker in our success.
3) go all out for Durant!!! A lot of sports riders think we have a good chance in landing him. We got to make that happen!
4) if our efforts for Durant fail, you know we need the next best thing and that's Paul George! He's 25, top ten player in the league, and he has huuuuge upside.
5) Winslow ~ work work work work on that jump shot and your overall offensive game.
6) trade McRoberts for a younger more athletic true PF.
7) I think Wade resigns but if he's asking for $20+ million again, play hard ball and play your options.

1) correct, but not for max.

2) correct. his situation has too many outside influencing factors to make a quick decision with tho

3) durant isnt the answer. for the money it costs to get him, we could grab some TRUE backup bigmen which clearly we need. durant and wade would clash on the same team. both require the ball in their hands, so the benefit would be nulled. the only benefit durant would bring over wade is 3pt shooting. and both would eat into each others minutes and touches. pointless.

4) pg never said he wanted to leave did he? and if we're going for players whos contracts are up but didnt say they wanted to leave, id throw all eggs in cp3's basket. him as the lead pg followed by dragic? LORD

5) nailed it. his offense is atrocious. the lack of confidence in himself is very apparent.

6) nobody wants mcroberts, we wont be able to trade him. dude is flat out trash. TRASHHHHHHHHHH. cut him.

7) resigning wade is non-negotiable. give him whatever he wants (just not max)

8) fire spoelstra 2 years ago. (but but.... we had injuries and still made it to game 7) awesome. then lets keep him around so we can get a few more moral victories until wade retires... THEN fire him. right?

u think so? what do u expect to happen in offseason? we need bigs. we need dragic to be more consistent and play like he did these past couple of games. wade already said hes going to work on his 3 this summer (*cough* sounds familiar)

 

edit: we need to develop plays for whiteside.....well...plays in general. the drive and kick is done for. we need something else.

I think so, with the injuries and all. We're in a tough spot, I don't think we can bring back this same team and waste another possibly productive Wade season but we don't have any assets. Probably going to have to contemplate trading some key guys.

Cp3 and PG are both under contract next year. My views on the offseason:

 

  • I think KD should be priority #1 although I don't think there's much chance of that happening.
  • I'd like to see the heat get younger. Gerald Green, Mcbob(trade), Dorrell, Amare definitely gotta go. Maybe Haslem too.
  • Keep Deng and JJ if they're willing to play for the low. Definitely keep Tyler.
  • Goran can be moved if the right offer is there. 
  • I really don't know what they should do with Whiteside. While I think he's a great player, if they're not gonna respect him and give him more touches, they shouldn't give him a max. It was ridiculous how much they ignored him. Maybe we can get him on a bit of a discount because there's no state tax.
  • If a superstar cannot be had, I don't think we should be big spenders this offseason. Next year's class is better at the top.

 

At the end of the day, I feel like you need a superstar or a good system to win. I don't think we have either. I didn't think this team was championship-caliber if Bosh was healthy because I just don't have faith in spo's offense. The big 3 were able to mask that for him when the heat were winning. Wade and Joe are 34 man. They gotta realize that you can't just throw them the ball and expect them to make magic all of the time. Same applies to Bosh and Goran. Justise has to develop an offensive game, period.

 

Next year, I hope they put more emphasis on winning games in the regular season. Home court matters.

Can't wait to see what happens this offseason. Really hope we keep Whiteside, see if anything develops with Bosh, and get Wade back locked up. Hopefully that doesn't drag out like last summer. And I can't wait to see the two rookies back next year with a full summer of work. I can imagine they'll have Winslow focus on that shot
post #9 of 696
Resign Whiteside, hopefully bosh can come back. Winslow needs to be working on his offensive game all off season. If he can add a jumper he's gonna be a problem. Harlem might retire. Keep deng and Joe like he said but only if they'd stay for low.

We'd be right back where we were this year next year but healthy we'd easily finish the job. With a healthy team I Ike our chances against lebron. He'll be another year older and we have someone who could play defense on him in Winslow who'd be another year more experienced.

If Winslow can just add a 3 consistent pt shot this summer, it's a significant upgrade to the offense.
post #11 of 696
I want more then just a 3 from him tho. I want his game to develop. PG came into the league the same way could play Defense but wasn't a scorer. I feel Winslow could make that same jump within these next few years. Adding a 3 for next year would be great. But in the long hall I want him to have more.

LeBron will be another year older but so will wade. Wade said he's going to work on his 3. Yall already seen my rants on our team practicing the 3 all summer.obviously wade agrees

Wait up,its official?!?!

Honestly I'd rather him retire and be able to live a reltively healthy life with his fam than trying to risk it out on the court only to possibly negatively impact his health long term.

Whatever his decision is,I can't help but respect it. He's earned that right
post #17 of 696
Fire Spo?

FOH.

His adjustments were the reason we:
1. Bounced back after a mediocre first half of the season and clinched the 3-seed.
2. Made it past Charlotte in the 1st round.
3. Took Toronto to a game 7 after losing Whiteside.

Doesn't matter how, but bring back Whiteside and Wade. Build the rest of the team around Wade, Whiteside, and Dragic.

Actually that was a mistake. Left him out on accident. Like I said before he's gotta go to work this summer. His lack of offense is really hurting us, and him

Sad that this is happening to such a stand up guy like Chris Bosh. You'd think with all the medical advancements and money available to these athletes, that these things could be defeated. frown.gif

Dragic | Richardson | TJ | Weber

Wade | Green

Joe | Winslow | Wright |

Deng | McRoberts | Haslem | *Bosh |

Whiteside | STAT

Must go: McRoberts, STAT, Green, Haslem retirement (probably won't happen)

We have a solid young core in Richardson, Winslow, and Whiteside. We should look to cultivate that talent by giving them more time next season and less for the old guys. They should regularly average 25+ minutes a game, all tree of 'em. I don't want to even think about Bosh's situation...let's just block out this soon to be bad memory.
post #28 of 696
Miami fans seem to have unrealistic expectations when it comes to this team post LeBron era.

The team just pushed the #2 seed (with 2 all-star caliber guards) to the brink of elimination with two rookies, an aging Joe Johnson, aging Wade, no Whiteside, no Bosh..... yet the coach deserves to be fired.

giphy.gif

Seriously man, this team maximized their opportunities and rose to every occasion and had a great season. The Spurs just got eliminated by OKC after having one of the best seasons ever.... should coach Pop be fired??? Hell no. Sometimes things just don't work out. You can't be a Championship team every single year.

As for the off season, I think Wade and Whiteside are top priorities. Everything else will kind of take care of itself from there. Chasing Durant is a bit of a stretch, but if you have a chance go for it. I'm not holding my breath for that one.

And if Bosh isn't able to play next season, that will really hurt, but I'm at the point where I trust what Riley and Andy Elisburg cook up.

post #29 of 696
Why are so many of yall saying Stat needs to go? He was solid for us in the limited minutes he played. Efficient minutes every time.

I've been saying fire spo for years. It didn't just start. Yes bosh went down, yes Whiteside went down. The team we have is good enough to beat the raps. This last game we just didn't get it done. From halftime on, we played like idiots. There was no plan at all.

My problem is, there never is a plan. There rarely is an adjustment. He's just... there. How many more fruitless years do you guys need to see we've gone as far as we can go with this guy? How many experimental rotations do you need to see? How many losses to inferior teams? How many more short post seasons?

Wade doesn't have much time left. I'd hate to see his last years wasted with spo when I KNOW if we had a better coach wed go further.

People still in here defending Spo hard as **** ?

Now we got people in here posting memes and gifs of how much they love the guy?? Sheesh let it go already!!

To take this team to the next level without a superstar player coach Spo is just another average coach. I'm not to sure if Whiteside respects him that much to resign with the Heat, Bosh looks as if his career might be over, and we're over here talking about an irrelevant head coach who's probably here to stay for years to come??? mean.gif

If you like him, congratulations! Much respect to you but damn get off my **** just because I'm not a fan of the guy.

Going back and forth about people who want him gone versus people who want him to stay isn't going to effect Pat Riley's ultimate decision. He's here regardless of me not liking his ***.

I'd rather talk about what pieces are available for this team next season and who we should cut or resign then waste time on this dead end topic of "Coach Spolstra" Damn!!

This is my last time responding to any coach Spolstra talk. @TEKtheMAESTRO I suggest you do the same. It is a dead end conversation at this point and it's making this thread look bad.
