    Guys..remember ..this is also a New offense. Last year was more of a Motion offense. This Year it's a 1-4, heavy P&R based offense.

    Any chance Heat trade Whiteside? Looking at Bosh his netrtg w Whiteside and Andersen last year was pretty meh. W McBob is was insane. Wonder if he needs to be a center full time.

    I mean - I know it's crazy at first - but no bird rights and weird fit. Wonder if they could put together a package for Carmelo or something.

    Not the craziest thing I've ever heard but Whiteside is a franchise center. Bosh didn't play much with Whiteside, right? Not sure but I think so.

    Bosh is a natural PF and Whiteside is a natural C. I think they'll gel together eventually.

    I'd rather trade some package including Deng for Melo. Hopefully the NYK prove to suck hard before the trade deadline to help them realize they're better off getting him off the books and getting some picks or whatever.

    I want to say it was like 100-200 minutes.

    And I guess I'm asking - is Bosh a 4 or 5? I sort of wonder if he's more valuable as a 5 at this point.

    He's mostly been a PF in his career. Only played C during the Big 3 era.

    Melo isn't and doesn't want to go anywhere. Any rumors you heard are pure BS. He's said it a handful of times already...

    No, I haven't heard rumors. I'm just addressing the post. I'd trade for him if he were available, just not Whiteside. Does he have a no trade clause?

    I'm already locking my vote in for curry to win MVP guy is the most unstoppable offense weapon in the game atm. Lebron's still a better all around player but Golden State will be a lock for more wins unless injuries happen.

    Woah. Two games in, huh? Pretty bold, even if it's for the reigning MVP.

    I'm gonna go with Westbrook for my bold prediction. Durant gets injured again, Westbrook leads them to the playoffs averaging nearly 30 ppg and over 50% FG.

    Carmelo is on a team with a .667 winning percentage and is undefeated on the road, and a no.4 pick that is showing flashes of HOLYSHNIT.. Why would he want to leave?

    Man, what's with the Heat? Seems like no one's got any inspiration. Was wondering if Green's energy and penetration could create some offence but even he looks lost. Who's going to be the guy for this team?

    22 point lead gone in one quarter...this team has become soft, starting with Harden. Lawson is as worthless as Dwight. Pathetic

    Feels like I'm watching the f'n dolphins. I want to vomit. Harden let the fame and money go to his head and he still can't get any damn help...smh. This is going to be a long season.

    Not sure how but I know one thing.... we don't need Durant... Winslow is Kawhi Leonard 2.0 and that's all we need at the 3 with Deng providing depth.

    Can't wait to hear the post game excuses again. You gave up a 21 point lead and turned it into a 20 point loss. I don't care if 2 of our starters are out. You had a damn blowout and gave it up in one quarter.
