  1. Tomorrow won't mean anything, unless there's a trade for a player that's already in the NBA. The actual draft day is the most overrated thing in sports. We get to see a bunch of names being picked, with every fanbase celebrating their pick (or not, in the case of Porzingis and others in the past) without any actual idea of whether these players are going to be good or not. Fans will celebrate picking Kwame Brown and Michael Jordan alike on draft day. Because truth be told nothing really matters and nobody really knows anything. But tomorrow I'll be ready to get super excited and hopeful about our new pick, just like every other fanbase in the league.
  2. Is it just me or are former NBA players going from retirement to front office positions and getting TV jobs more than ever before?
  3. I'm pretty sure we won't replicate the 30-11 stretch just by keeping the team together. The Hawks won 60 games two seasons ago and have been mediocre since. It's a tad delusional to think that this Heat team, without any major upgrades, will win 60 games. Towards the end of the season the team was already skidding. A lot of homers here are going to be surprised when they realize that a team led by Waiters and Whiteside is not going to do much better than 45 wins.
  4. Dragic is a good PG, but an even better PG when used in the right situation, as was the case with the Heat last season. As long as we commit to a fast-paced style of basketball that prioritizes shooting and off-ball movement, while allowing Dragic to have the ball in his hands, he'll fit right in. George seems very inclined to go to LA so giving up Dragic would be a bad move. If he hadn't been so adamant about becoming a Laker I would obviously approve of trading him. But a PG rental seems like one of those stupid trades a franchise like the Knicks would do. I think the Heat are better than that.
  5. Let's not forget about your days of defending McRoberts around these boards. We're all wrong sometimes.
  6. I have no shame in admitting I was wrong. Dude isn't as good as most thought he would be. The superstar thing was a semi-trolling in-the-moment post. We didn't have much to be excited about that offseason anyways.

  8. We would have already traded for Butler if we had tanked this year. Which likely would have facilitated a Hayward move. Now, hard to see either of them coming to Miami.
  9. You're right, what an amazing season he had! And all of that in just 35 minutes a game!
  10. Or just acknowledgement of his mediocrity..
  11. Cherry picking. It's actually 12 mil a year, as that's the average for the 4 years, regardless of how it's structured. He's also a lot younger than Wade, and is actually a tradeable asset. Wade isn't.
  12. Winslow has less trade value than Jaylen Brown. Homers who still think he'll become Kawhi can't process that.
  13. It was mainly for his quote regarding the opt-in. He knows damn well he's not getting paid if he opts out. But, yeah I guess Wade is irrelevant to us at this point. That being said I know that a lot of you were emotional and enraged with the FO last year, and now if you think about it that move single-handedly fast-tracked our rebuild by 2-3 years.
  14. I want to pull up that thread from last year and see who was clamoring to keep Wade. Thank god we got rid of this diva *** attitude lol. Dude's getting paid in Chicago, putting up worst #'s of his career, and playing absolutely no defense. Riley made the right move, as he does for the most part.
  15. LMAO. Biggest L of the year.
