I’d argue with you about throwing ‘Sheed into that mix. I mean, team chops don’t come much truer than the Pistons finals run. Personally, I could see Wallace being a hell of a head coach some day, kind of an NBA analogue to Ozzie Guillen.

What sealed it was the Iron Man 2 reference. That quote is about as bad *** as they come. There is definitely blood in the water in Miami. Now if only we could make the gods in Los Angeles bleed. *heavy sigh*

It’s not just that they tried to build the “Super Team” themselves, but more so that they did an incredibly poor job of getting the proper set of role players with which to surround the Heat’s “Big Three.” Of course it’s on Riley for thinking that 2 Hall of Famers and one incredibly over rated nerf ball soft PF in Bosh would be enough to surround with 2 scrubs who wouldn’t start in Minnesota, a member of the Fab Five, a Center who played for Pitino at Kentucky, a guy who did drugs during the league’s anti-drug policy seminars, a guy who was traded along with others for Nate Robinson, a guy who’s scored more on the Puerto Rico basketball team than in his NBA career, A North Carolina NBA Bust that couldn’t even win or get along with Jordan and a Center that’s undergone as many foot surgeries as Yao and who started for the Cavs, since a blue dress was stained in the White House. Haslem is the only other player on this team that has the same intestinal fortitude as LeBron and Wade.

Not to mention Mike Miller, who played harder D in practice (which lead to his injury) than the Heat have played against any Playoff team they’ve faced thus far.

But aside from being on Riley, the blame is on LeBron, Wade, and Bosh, for not joining Riley in recruiting and/or procuring veteran talent such as Al Harrington, Brad Miller, Allen Iverson, Larry Hughes, or just holding on to Beasley, which is clearly, at this juncture what the Heat should have done.

Larry Hughes, Rasheed Wallace, Wally World, and Starbury flavored vasaline are all waiting by their phones and until the wait ends, this Heat team is taking an early exit come Spring.
