I usually like his articles...But this was his weakest effort....

No mention of all the injuries.....

I also got a stat for you.....

The Heat is 18-8 since Shaq came back....and 8-1 with all five starters in the lineup this year....

If that's the Matt Morrow I think your talking about...I've played with him. He was on my soccer team a couple seasons ago.

Haha, I'm used to it.

129, constructive criticism accepted. I did mention J-Will's injury and how I think they should treat it, but they played fine without Shaq. However, it's still troubling to see them barely pull out games against Charlotte with both a healthy Shaq and Wade.

PT, how old is the Matt Morrow you know? Keep in mind this one is in high school.

Oops...:lol:

Still, the point remains. Charlotte should be a cakewalk for this team. Losses to Toronto, Nokie, and Orlando don't make me feel better. I want to see them win a premiere game against a premier opponent, and at that point I'll start believing. Next opportunity: February 12th against Detroit at the AAA.

I agree with you completely there.....

This guy's articles just say some wacky things sometimes...

First that insane proposal for college football bowl games.. You obviously put no thought into the idea.

And Steve Francis a shooter? Steve Francis is not a shooter. I think his career 34% 3-point shooting percentage and his career 43% field goal percentage speak for themselves. Francis is anything but a spot shooter.

You have to get your facts straight and think about what you're writing. In your articles, it seems like sometimes you worry more about sounding sexy than transmitting insightful and accurate information. Obviously you want both, but the latter should be stressed before the former. Which is why most real columnists are older and younger journalists tend to cover college/prep games and write beats, things like that.


There's just some constructive criticism. Take it easy bro.

I actually put a lot of thought into the playoffs proposal. If I hadn't, I would have written that they needed a playoff and moved on with my life. Whether you agree or disagree is another matter, but that's a different thread.

You also misconstrued what I meant by the term "shooter". My point was that they didn't need someone else to launch the ball like Walker already does.

That said, keep reading and keep commenting. I appreciate your POV.

Pat Riley is finding this job a little harder than he probably thought it would be, and he might be willing to pronounce the Antoine Walker experiment a failure. The only problem is that no one is going to want that contract. The only possibility I can see is a swap with Orlando for Steve Francis, but I’m leery about trading in the division, and the Heat don’t need another shooter.

I think its a valid point made when Zacher says you put no thought into the article. If you want to offer fanciful trade proposals at least come up with a trade that could work. Francis has a max deal...


What they need is to sit down Jason Williams until March, giving his tendinitis-wracked knee 5 weeks to rest, let him play himself into shape that month, and get him ready for the playoffs.

Again...the lack of thought thing... Tendinitis isnt going to disappear just b/c a guy gets a month of rest. Hes going to have to live with this for the rest of his life. All JWill needs is to be able to take a day off between games to reduce the inflamation.

But why aggravate it playing in meaningless games? I'm no doctor, but a condition like that has got to improve more by sitting out for real stretches of time rather than 3 or 4 days before going back on it. Once you get into the playoffs, there are no back-to-backs, so combine that with some real rest and real time off the knee and there should be some improvement.

First of all they arent meaningless games. This team has had precious little time playing together. If they went up against the Pistons now I doubt they would make it to a 6th game. This team needs at least a month of playing together so they can play some semblance of team defense. If you arent communicating with each other on defense its a lost cause.

Every time JWill extends that knee when running or jumping hes going to feel it. Its not pleasant but it wont restrict his movement....he may be able to address the problem by having surgery sometime to remove the scar tissue buildup, but thats a question for the offseason. For now it doesnt matter if he sits out a month, hes still going to have to drug himself up after every game.
