    I'm going to add Chicago to that list as well, and they were the main team that I labeled coming into this offseason as a major threat to not only jump Miami, but Atlanta as well. Losing Ben Gordon was huge for them. Huge. EDIT: Let's go ahead and add Philadelphia into that category as well. They get Elton Brand back (for how long, though, lol?) but lose Andre Miller. Again. Huge. Charlotte was another team on the major side of come up, but that Okafor for Chandler move really drops them back into that below .500 state they're accustomed too.

    Boston
    Cleveland
    Orlando
    Atlanta

    ...I'd put ahead of Miami without question at the moment. Toronto and a healthy Washington is probably the main competition for the 5th seed. I like this Washington team a lot but their health is never to be trusted.

    Good Point, HD. The Wizards, if healthy, are going to be a very good team. They could grab the 4th seed this season.

    Just down on Dorrell...it is about time he cracks our rotation.

    this is try #87.

    let's see how this one turns out.

    players in the NBA traditionally make big jumps in their second year.

    so yeah...1 year experience is a big deal.

    And sometimes they have sophmore slumps. Not always a guarantee to make the big leap. But, I can see Beasley taking the leap into stardom. Very talented.

    He does need to grow up, but the talent is there. I really fear the combo of D Wade and Beasley.

    ceiling is the 4th seed.....not much different than last year.

    a year of growth for our young players.

    I still say we're nowhere close to being finished making moves. I'm sure Wade has made it clear he wants a championship squad around him. And props to Zo for being brought on board.

    Talked to Eric Reid today.

    He said the Heat ARE going to make moves THIS YEAR.

    Theyre just waiting on the right deal to come along.

    On Beasely, he said he got back and talked with reporters and everything seems back to normal. Said he's confident that Beasely will come along considering the organization hes playing for and the players around him.

    Basically, Reid said that there's no way Riley is going to "stand Pat" while everyone else in the East improves. There WILL be a move made, its just a matter of time.

    First pre-season game tonight vs. Detroit.

    Beasley will start at SF.

    I will start the NEW Heat thread in a couple of weeks.

    WTF is Chris Sheridan talking about?

    foregone conclusion?

    it is a foregone conclusion that he is resigning at the max.

    we are gonna be good for 10 years after next offseason.
