    Really wanted a top 2 pick but I guess I can't be mad at us winning games.

    So I guess we aren't tanking. Must be trying to pump up everyone's value for a trade.

    No one outside of Miami likes that jackass, he's sucked long before his crying about losing LeBron rants.

    No accident the ratings for the 10am time slot have plummeted when fat boy took over when Colin moved on. He sucks.

    Careful there fat man...

    Not only does Cowherd outperform blowhard, Dan Patrick gets better ratings also! And they work on less recognizable platforms. People are just used to watching ESPN and still are turning the channel when that sh-t show comes on.

    He tries to hard to be controversial, it's not genuine it's a ploy. He loves to race bait. And frankly he brings nothing to the table other than some inside info on Miami sports.

    Better chance of the Heat being in the playoffs in the next 2 seasons than his show still being on air. Mike Golics talentless cliche son would be better suited for that vaunted 10am time slot.

    Well theyre playing angry, bunch of dumb fans calling in the radio rooting for the tank and these players have spoken out about it and telling the fans screw you, there's no tank here.

    I can honestly see us get the eighth seed and lose to Boston in the first round.. got a feeling Boston gets the first seed but cleveland wins the conference.


    One thing to note, the Spo "get paid" program is in FULL effect here. James Johnson and Dion Waiters have contributed alot in this win streak and they will be cashing in the offseason by some team that will overpay for them. I would be glad to have them back at a fair price but if some team offers Dion 15-18 million per year then no thanks... theyre not getting us championships

    I do think the Le Batard show has run its course. ESPN should've paid Cowherd what he wanted considering his ratings success. I think what hurts Le Batard is the fact that he barely talks sports, his jokes are old and his far left politics turn off a major segment of the listening audience.

    Isn't all of ESPN far left these days?

    Can we focus on what matters and that is heat basketball? Wtf is really going on with a bottom team holding the longest win streak?

    **** the tank lets go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You can't trade the 1st because they are trading next years 1st to the Suns.

    It's really crazy and hard to wrap your head around. This team was flat out awful a month ago. Then after losing some of their best players to injury, they have somehow become an unstoppable force. Last night's game was one of the most impressive because they thoroughly dominated a solid team that was pretty hot. I had settled on my dream scenario being trading Dragic for a lotto pick, draft one of the top PGs and one of the other supremely talented freshmen in the draft, and get Heyward and Ibaka in FA. But now, the dream scenario involves Waiters keeping his all-star play up and turning into a late blooming star a la Kyle Lowry, keeping Dragic, drafting the best player available at the end of the lotto (or maybe even just outside the lotto), paying Waiters, and signing the best player you can to complete what could become on of the better teams in the East.

    The beauty of it is, it's really a win/win no matter what. If they suddenly turn into a pumpkin at midnight and suck for the rest of the year, they end up with a great draft pick. If they keep this up, it continues to be an incredibly fun year.

    spoelstra credits the conditioning as the reason we are in this streak.. and honestly i look at the team on the court and there's no doubt we are better conditioned than any opponent in front of us.

    We still have no chance of making it out of the first round but we definitely have some tradeable assets, contenders looking to improve are going to start calling.

    Unfortunately James Johnson suffered a wrist injury on his shooting hand.

    Hassan had a 30/20 game with 3 blocks

    Miami’s current 10-game win streak is the longest in NBA History by a team at least 19 games below .500 when it started.

    Also 8 straight games with at least 100 points.

    Alfredo what's your perspective on this? I mean this has to be fool's gold to some extent right??? What's the real long term takeaway from this streak?

    I told you they were overrating us. This team aint worth ****. Trade them all except Hernangomez, KP, Kuzminskas and Burgundy. O Quinn, Holiday (best player we received in the rose deal), and Lee i could take or leave. Derrick Rose sucks. Jennings tries but weighs 13 pounds and couldnt guard a fruitfly. Noah, like i said, is a bum. As in straight up, hes washed up.

    Rumors of a blockbuster 3 team trade with the Knicks, Boston and Cavs....Would look something like this...

    Knicks get picks and expiring contracts
    Celtics get Love
    Cavs get Melo

    Thats an opinion, all Fattard does is race bait and try to be funny. No talent.

    Id take an arrogant Cowherd with talent over that buffoon any day of the week. Hell, I'd rather watch you talk sports and cellphones for 2 hours than that turd.

    LeBron, Lue, and Love all shot the rumor down with Lue saying Love wasn't going to be traded, and LeBron calling the report "trash". I honestly think that would be a horrible trade from Cleveland's POV. Melo's game is too ball dominant. I don't see it fitting well with LeBron and Kyrie. He's more of an iso player and you'd be getting him in the middle of the year and hoping to make everyone fit by the playoffs.

    The way the Heat are playing and the pending 1st round upset over Cleveland, I can see why the Cavs are looking to do something, though. :smile:
