    Oh I guess it's not a surprise anymore. Haters!
    I'm sorry, was that supposed to take the place of something meaningful? No one's surprised, the Heat are going to roll through the regular season. In case you hadn't realized yet, that doesn't really mean much. It doesn't change how weak they are at the 1 and 5. Which will lead to problems in the playoffs. If you want to talk about the Heat then let's talk about the Heat. I'm more than willing to discuss their positives and negatives with you.

    Now if you have nothing meaningful to contribute I suggest you just don't post. I have no problem with troll's or trolling as long as they make people think, but meaningless posts that are just there to rile people up will not be tolerated.

    (i do not know the details of what would make that happen but apparently its possible.)
    and you never know he might just say hey ill take my chances and go where he wants to go and deals with the money later. i mean its not unheard of in sports. its a bit rare but it happens. then again thats a hell of a lot of money so you do have a point i am just saying ya never know.
    That's the beauty of all of this, if the Nuggets tried what I suggested Melo could still leave. This is essentially brinkmanship. Melo ultimately holds the trump card, but he can't play that without serious drawbacks. Which is why the Nuggets are trying to trade him, so that neither side has to deal with the consequences of Melo just walking away in free agency.

    As for that clause in the new CBA, it most likely won't be included. Remember both the owners and the players association have to agree to the terms of a new CBA and that would be extremely disadvantageous to the players.

    Wait! You're overthinking things now DF, okay let us discuss the Heat. What are the things you see that will break em apart by the time playoff comes. I see none! They have all find their answers coz of that visit loss at Dallas last December. So what if Dallas beat em twice now, or that Boston did it too on the regular season. Regular season wins is all about the standings and the homecourt advantage you will need by playoffs and I can see them all goin out to the Finals, remember that the "former Big Three" got their championship on their first year of formation, I see no reason on how can't the Heatles do it too.

    On the recent Carmelo trade, I hate to say it but if he is their lookin for cash like Amare, he should go to NJ. And btw, I wasn't trolling you all. My bad.
    What's up Motherf*ckers?!...

    Now, this' what I like to see.

    I'm not over thinking it. In fact all you need to do is look at their individual stats. Outside of the Three-Headed Monster it's just sad. Now, you compared them to the Celtics when their Big Three formed, yet you neglect to take into account that the Celtics didn't need to blow up their team in order to form them. The Heat's Three-Headed Monster is much better than the Celtics, but the role players are not. When you compare Mario Chalmers, Carlos Arroyo, Joel Anthony, Eric Dampier, or Big Z etc. to Rajon Rondo, Kendrick Perkins, Glen Davis, or Leon Powe etc. you'll see what I mean. The Heat do have some solid role players though. Both Udonis Haslem and Mike Miller are good players, however injuries have significantly stunted their growth with the team. The Heat need more time both to gel more and to improve their rotations. I'm not saying it's impossible for the Heat to win this year, but it will extremely difficult.

    As for homecourt, that doesn't really matter when you can barely fill the stands.

    I agree, if he wants to make sure he gets the most money he should just agree to NJ.

    That's just how the way it is. Basketball is a five man team playing the other five but once the Heatles are on the floor, they're just the ones who fill in the stats. Not too good for the other members, but winning is what important. F*ck! I remember it was Mchale who did the trades back their in 07 for the C's to land Garnett, I hate em when he did that. Yeah! The C's didn't blow up their roster back in 07 in fact they've got the best starters and bench players out their. Sam Cassell and PJ Brown-they got their rings and retired. Compared to the Heat today, they have more on what-minimum payed players but are not all so reliable and Udonis is out due to injury. Remember that Udonis too did got the lesser pay for them to land Mike Miller. Frontcourt players for Heat will lost to Boston now that Udonis is out more entirely for the rest of the season and Boston has Perkins on his day-to-day rehab and could be expected anytime around soon, this will be the challenge for Miami once playoff time comes, forget about Orlando, when you say Florida-you say Miami Heat. Yes, the rotations is what the coaching staff needs to improved most, but as you can see now from the recent wins once Lebron sits, Wade and Bosh plays also goes when Wade and Bosh sits, Lebron plays. The rotation is better now compared to the first month of the season for the Heat.

    I think homecourt advantage is still important, haha! Have you watched that Lakers Rockets west semis matchup in 09? I call that Homecourt disadvantage. Haha!

    Yeah, its all about money. But for Miami, my team , its about the ring.

    Need to prepare for work, will read your reply later.

    i agree but if the league given the players something else in return its possible. but either way you right its unlikely the player would accept that. i just hope that the nuggets do not push there luck to much. and your fav reporter is now saying that the deal is drifting further apart because the nuggets keep tweaking the deal.

    its not saying that, maybe till the end of the season but its saying that he might not sign a deal with the nets and could likely force a trade with NY or leave after the season but i do not think any one thinks that he will stay with the nuggets long term he seems to just want out, from reports it seems his heart is in the big apple or at least thats what it looks like right now.

    He will much likely becoming the next LeBron once that happens. He can have "The Decision...Part2". Now that would be shameful. Well, just I've posted, if he wants to have a higher pay he should leave the Nuggets.
