#234420 Play Wade or Bench Him. Inconsistency is killing this team

Posted by WB3 on 16 January 2014 - 02:00 PM

This is why I say trade him now...his value on the trade market is declining fast.

 

I think it's about time that I address this whole "Trade Wade" garbage.

 

Reason 1.

 

Dwyane Wade was drafted by this team in 2003, this is his 11th season with the team. In his time here, he's been a monumental part of 3 NBA championships inlcuding a Finals MVP in one of, if not, the GREATEST Finals performances ever, 4 NBA Finals appearances, soon to be 10 All-Star games including an ASG MVP, the franchise's all-time leader in games played, games started, points, assists, steals, free-throws made, field goals made, win-shares and is 7th all-time in the NBA in areer PER. What Dwyane Wade has brought to this city, both on and off the court, is incredible and matched by perhaps only Dan Marino.

 

At the end of the day, there's certain players who've earned the right to wear one team's jersey throughout the entirety of their career. Dwyane Wade is one of those guys, right there with the Tim Duncan's, Dirk Nowitzki's and Kobe Bryant's. 

 

Reason 2. 

 

Dwyane Wade took the largest pay-cut out of the Big 3 to sign here. I imagine him doing it again this up-coming off-season to not only retain LeBron and Bosh, but to give Miami even more financial flexibility to surround the team with to put it in the best possible situation for success. 

 

Reason 3.

 

Everyone who's so high on the "Trade Wade" bandwagon, let me ask you these rhetorical questions: What do you think LeBron James's reaction would be to such a suggestion? Do you really think Pat Riley would ever entertain this, and I use this term loosely, idea? Don't you think for a trade like that to happen you'd have to go and see what Micky Arison's, Erik Spoelstra's and the team as a whole's point of view? I gurauntee they'd all do what I have everytime I've seen this nonsense, a sarcastic laugh followed by a face-palm and head-shake of disapproval. 

 

Reason 4. 

 

What imaginary trade scenario do you fools have in your head? Seriously, I'd LOVE to hear this. Name a situation where you can trade a guy like Dwyane Wade and get equal or more value and hope that player X is as unselfish as Wade is contract and playing wise and on top of that, won't mess-up the team chemistry that has been vital to our success and won't bring about the backlash of the Miami Heat, notice I said Miami Heat, not LeBron James, fanbase?

 

Go ahead. This is an open question to everyone who constantly preaches about this run Wade out of town BS BTW.

#280580 My view on everything.

Posted by WB3 on 11 July 2014 - 01:58 PM

It's been a while since I've made a thread and this past season has by far been my least active since I joined the boards in 2008, but for those who don't know me I've been a Heat fan for a while now, since 2004 to be exact. 

 

Now for those who do know me, they know I'm as passionate about this team, this franchise as they come. Right now, like a lot of you, there's a ton running through my head and there's no better place to air it out than here, I don't know if it'll help me or any of you, regardless, here's my thoughts. 

 

This past season has just been a tough one all around. Amnestying Mike Miller, Wade's injury struggles, being absolutely dismantled in the NBA Finals and now having LeBron leave and probably Chris Bosh, wouldn't be surprised if he's gone by the time I post this. 

 

At first, obviously I was shocked, angered, a little depressed and still feel a mixture of a lot of those emotions, but overall, I feel grateful. I know this feeling might not be mutually exclusive with the whole fanbase, but we had 4 great, historic, memorable years that most teams and their fans, not only in basketball, but sports in general don't get to experience.

 

From the first season of the Big 3 era with the theme being us against the world, to 2012 winning our first chip since 06 on our homecourt in front of our fans, to 2013 running off a legendary 27 game winning streak and beating the San Antonio Spurs in what was IMO, the greatest Finals of all-time, to repeat as champions to even this season. This team became more than a team, they became a brotherhood, and I loved every second of it. I loved and still do love the fanbase and interacting with them, through times of pain and times of glory.

 

We accomplished a lot with this group. The Miami Heat, no matter what anyone says, are forever sketched in NBA history. We left our mark. Sure, it feels like it may have been cut-short, but this was so close to never happening, I'm just thrilled that it did. 4 consecutive NBA Finals, something that hasn't been done in what, 30 years? That's incredible, if you would have told me in 2008 or 2009 that this team would accomplish that, I would have called you crazy. 

 

So hold your heads up high Heat fans. This team has been great for us, you couldn't ask for anything more. From the top to the bottom of the organization, complete and total class. None of this was promised.

 

The Big 3 era may have come to close, but it's time for a new era. I believe in Pat Riley and Micky Arison, I trust they're working on a Plan B and start to something that could be special as we speak. This team can and will recover from this, believe that. It's only a matter of when.

 

In closing,I just want to thank everyone who has been a part of this. From the team, to the coaching staff, to the management and ownership, to even the reporters, the forums and especially the fanbase. It's been amazing and I look forward to many years more of Miami Heat basketball.

#271294 Message from San Antonio

Posted by Tim Duncan on 16 June 2014 - 08:51 AM

I first came here to this message board last year--after the Miami Heat defeated my team, the San Antonio Spurs, in the 7th game. I came here to congratulate Miami--the Heat organization--the Heat fans--and the players. It was with a heavy heart that I did so. It is not easy when you see your team go down to defeat.

 

I return today to once again pay homage to the Miami Heat organization. There is absolutely no doubt whatsoever in my mind that Lebron James stays in Miami--that Pat Riley gets a few  other role players to help him--and that next year, I would not doubt seeing reduced playing time for both Bosh and Wade as they head towards the playoffs.

 

For what its worth--last year--when we lost to Miami--Spurs fans went ballistic and were calling for the Spurs to not re-sign Manu to another contract--or Tiago Splitter. 

It is absolutely natural after a defeat to look for major changes.

 

I was glad that--aside from signing Marco Bellenini from the Bulls--and giving Patty Mills more playing time in the regular season so that he could develop his skills and confidence--that really is the bulk of the changes that the team made. 

 

So--when Manu and Tiago Splitter were both re-signed--Spurs fans went crazy. In hindsight now, I think that the Spurs front office knew what it was doing.

 

Your front office knows what to do as well. 

 

Your team went to the NBA Finals 4 times--and I would not be at all surprised to see Miami in the finals next year as well for a 5th straight appearance. 

 

It might even be another re-match.

 

Whatever the case--I know how you guys all feel. You have a great team. 

 

And I have a feeling that our teams will meet again very soon.

 

Best wishes from San Antonio...

#280137 LeBron James back to Cleveland (ALL POST-DECISION LEBRON RELATED TOPICS HERE)

Posted by WB3 on 11 July 2014 - 11:54 AM

Well, back to where we started boys. Shout-out to everyone who was here before the Big 3 and is still here, the rest can kick rocks. Thanks LeBron and probably Bosh as well, for the 4 years they've given us. Those are GREAT memories and they helped take our team to new heights. With that said, it's time or a new era. Looking forward to it. 




#274569 Jason Kidd

Posted by Nolio on 30 June 2014 - 05:27 PM

This is more of a rant than a discussion about anything, but...

 

 

First and foremost, I'll say that he's a Hall of Famer, one of the greatest bball minds to play at the pg position and he's done a great job throughout his career of elevating his game and making others better. 

With that being said....

 

Fk him, I have very little (if any) respect for him. Jason Kidd is easily among the top 5 players I despise in league history and here's why:

 

1. He's a woman beater.

 

2. He "gave away" his olympic gold medal to the wife of the owners of his Las Vegas hotel, in which he stayed in the suite there. The coaches of the olympic teams don't receive medals. There were players lined up to play on the team and he was grandfathered on there. He gave his medal away to a woman who probably never touched a basketball in her life. 

 

3. He forced his way out of Brooklyn after they gave him an opportunity that most players never get. An opportunity most coaches don't get. Only to go to a team in a worse situation and steal another man's job. 


If I saw Jason Kidd on fire in a dark alley, I'd grab some marshmallows and make smores. There are more reasons why I don't like him, but those are my top 3.

Hey everyone! I just got a chance to sit down and listen to the game. It looks like we're playing much better. On a different note: my dentist found a tumor growing around the root of one of my teeth when he was doing my 6 month cleaning in October. I had it removed last week and I got the biopsy results back today-benign!!! Life is good! Jah is amazing!!! Let's go Heat!!!
