    Wade has already said there are no ill feelings towards the Heat and Bosh was not cleared by NBA doctors. So that leaves just lebron leaving on bad terms.

    I agree. No team will sign him and chance them receiving bad publicity if something does happen.

    Edit: If I'm Riley, I look towards the soon to be disaster in Washington and pick a point guard from them.

    Facts be damned huh?

    I am sure you want what you just wrote to be true, but it's not.

    To recap:

    A) Bron planned his exit long in advance, and actually back stabbed Riley. Not the other way around.
    B) Wade was offered a legitimate contract that he chose not to accept. He has said he holds no ill feelings and it is mutual.
    C) Chris Bosh has been in and out of the lineup for 2 1/2 years, and now has a third clot that ended his career.

    So unless Pat Riley planted the clots in Bosh and he did not offer that $40mil for 2 years to Wade, then the article is a continued and typical Attempt by that Fat **** Windy to throw Shade at a City who MADE HIM. YES. MADE HIM. ONE MORE TIME. MADE HIM. There is NO Big Three, there is NO Windy with a National profile. NOBODY ever heard of Windy when he was in Cleveland on Bron's first run there. NOBODY.

    I would rather see that he say THANK YOU and move on to write glowing pieces about the Cavs and Dan Gilbert.

    As for the Big Three era...I said it before, will say it again. The Best 4 years in Pro Miami Sports History, and for that matter, the best 4 years any team EVER has had in any pro sport in modern times (Warriors gonna challenge that). I am fine with it. Better than fine with it. How can I not be?

    it was great, it ended, that's fine. We got our end. We got the payoff. For that I am grateful to all in involved, from Bron to Riley, to Wade, Bosh, etc.

    There's a quote that I can't remember, so I'll paraphrase: things never end well, because if they were going well, they wouldn't have ended.

    The Big 3 era is over. It ended. Any attempt to trump up discontent or gloss over discontent seems silly to me. It was a fun run.

    Funny thing is that Pat Riley wrote about this. In a way, predicted it 20 years before it happened.

    LeBron is both the second greatest player I've ever seen and a cancerous tumor.

    He will give you great times but will sow discontent everywhere. Riley never had a problem with anybody until this guy showed up and slowly poisoned two of the all time great team players in the sport

    It was a marvelous run and I appreciate it but LeBron should focus on his own team and the Borg like entity he's created and leave us alone. Don't comment about us. Keep our name out of your mouth sand deliver that message to the star of Bring it On as well

    Camp is open!

    Sounds like we'll be without both McBob and JRich to start the season. Which is not ideal, just means more minutes for brand new members of the team. It's frustrating that we'll be missing a key guy in Josh, whose development is so important in this 'rebuilding' year, or whatever you want to call it. McBob still McBob.

    The big roster battle is probably Briante vs Beno. Young defense vs. veteran steady offense. My guess is we keep Beno. I know the staff is in love with Briante's on-ball defense, but he isn't a good enough shooter or PnR player right now. Not sure how he defends NBA-level PnR either. Should Dragic or TJ get hurt, we're going to need someone who can create a little and run the O, and Beno's a decent option. Udrih's also a veteran (who's been around the org) on a team that doesn't have many. Briante is really fun to watch though, no doubt, if he ends up getting the spot.

    Apparently Waiters is in very good shape, lost 12lbs. I'm expecting strong play from him: I think he's going to be one of the biggest surprises in the League. Also saw this pic of Justise where he looks trimmed down...though he's still...a big dude. Preseason starts NEXT WEEK. wtf.

    Josh McRoberts is broken, period. He's the G.I. Joe with no more rubber band in his torso so his legs and pelvis will never reconnect. You try and glue the torso back on the hips but then the legs want to fall off and now you've got to glue those too except now the thing doesn't move and you know the glue is going to break off again in a day anyway. His calves and forearms still move a bit, though.

    He trashes the Cavs constantly. CONSTANTLY. And speaks glowingly of the Heat organization regularly. You can argue he's anti-Heat, but not pro-Cavs. Dude said Kyrie wouldn't re-sign, then didn't list CLE as a top-4 destination for LeBron before he came back. Has been negative on an almost constant basis.

    Bosh now saying that Riley never told him that he was done with Heat and that he didn't like hearing it through the media

    Also says there are 29 other teams out there that might have a different view

    This guy is crazy. I'm sorry, but he's nuts to try and continue

    What team would want to risk the chance of Bosh dying on the court? I mean, love the guy, but let's get real here.

    Multiple writers have now tweeted that Riley reached out to Bosh first only to be rebuffed. So someone is lying here to win public opinion. Either way, this thing has just gotten very ugly and will probably continue down this path. It's really a shame the Big 3 era is ending this way. Maybe this is our punishment for having it so good for 4 years.

    I love Bosh but hes just wrong here to say he found out through the media. You knew damn well what the results were before the media knew of it and you knew what the consequences may be.

    That's your perspective. I know for a FACT that he roots for Cleveland as a city. SO why wouldn't he put his finger on the scale for the Cavs?

    Just because he is wrong about a lot of things (He said there was NO CHANCE that Bron would come here) doesn't mean he isn't biased. He does in FACT hate this city (miami). The guy sold a condo here at damn near a loss as he ASKED out of miami to espn.

    BTW, there is that infamous video of Windy celebrating when the News of Bron going back to middle earth broke.

    The response to that is rather simple.

    that was pretty disgusting for Bosh to say.

    Youve had three different medical situations that gave you blood clots. We prepared for your return and you got another blood clot. Erik Spoelstra has seen a player die on the court before.

    Bosh dont go out like this, not even Wade supports your return on the court.

    I know its taboo to say, but I think its clear the Heat FO has done a poor job with having players walk away on good terms.

    Wade said all the right things after the fact, but during the process he was obviously not feeling appreciated for what he had done. Will be interesting to see if Miami can land any big name FA's after this.

    Wait, apparently Bosh never actually said that.

    Ira Winderman is just really careless, 'reported' in a confusing way, wasn't really reporting.

    Oh he's for sure a Cavs fan - but he over-compensates in his coverage and makes a LOT of his Cavs takes be negative.

    And he might hate Miami but I remember listening to one of those True Hoop podcasts where he went on a rant about how the Heat were almost a perfectly run organization and LeBron going from there to Cleveland where it's a disaster was a shock to his system, etc. I've heard him say things of that nature about the Heat on numerous occasions.

    We know Riley pissed of Lebron.

    We know Wade felt betrayed.

    We know Bosh didn't like the way his situation was handled.

    And i didn't say they wouldn't land any free agents ever again, I said it will be interesting to see if they can land any big name FA's.

    You are just way too sensitive about these topics to read them right. I may aswell have posted " Heat suck now HAHA" "Your FO is a joke" in your eyes. Whats your deal lately? Everything I post you go in to defence mode like I spilled your Johnny Walker on your couch or something.

    A) I don't drink JW. I like Bourbon.
    B) You are trolling.
    C) I shut you down every time, precisely because you are trolling.
    D) everything you just posted was conjecture (once again) based on innuendo and BS.
    E) You repeated it again, so I bolded it for you, so you can refer to it.

    Mainly, I would like you to just stop with your constant trolling BS.

    isn;t it interesting that you say you weren't trolling ...WHILE TROLLING?
