That's how Shaq described what will happen when Kobe meets him in the lane.

"He's a Corvette, I'm a brick wall."

You mean there's a Laker-Heat game this week? I didn't know, cause ESPN/ABC certaintly isn't promoting it enough.

I think D-Wade is going to be the wall Kobe can't get through!

Oh great, now Shaq is hurt. Wtf is his deal? I did not see him get hurt against Orlando, but just out of the blue(the injury wasn't reported until game time tonight)...he's out tonight with a "calf injury", and may not be ready for the Christmas game.

Nice job, Shaq. The Heat are playing their best basketball that I've seen since that team that went to the Eastern Conference Finals and lost to Chicago(MJ days). :rolleyes2

Hey X, Shaq missed alot of games for my Lakers over the last 3 yrs. or so, that's one of the reasons I wasn't totally heart broken to see him get traded. Don't get wrong I still miss the big guy, especially since Vlade seems to be tanking on me.Christmas day should be fun,hope he doesn't kill Kobe.LOL!

This whole injury thing is a bunch of BS. Shaq just wanted to sit out a game to make sure he was ready for the big one. There is no way he would miss this game....nationally televised on christmas....not a chance.

After the game, a few reports on ESPN Radio(790) said that there is a "more than 50 percent chance" of Shaq playing against Sac-Town on Thursday.

i did see him limping in the Orlando game, but beleive me, he'll be playing Christmas day....I cant wait to see Kobe with his legs up in the air on his back after Shaq swats his shiz!

Just because there's so many cocky Heat fans on this board, I'm cheering for Kobe (even though the chances of the Lakers winning are slim)!

That's funny, because I haven't seen any. Most of us Heat fans here just talk about the games and the remarkable stuff Flash pulls every night, and some(like me) don't think the Heat will be Champions this season because we're 1-man short.

The funniest thing with that post is that you're a Knicks fan. :roflmao:

I agree with our championship odds. I think we need a solid SF, not a star, but a true SF than can shoot a nice J and play D, a Bruce Bowen type with a better offensive game. We dont need a star, just a solid SF, and its hard to find someone like that right now.

You have to expect a large amount of heat fans on a board for a miami team. Just like Sabres fans are on the Billszone.com. That said, I love Shaq...but im rootin for the great number eight.

All we need is a Donyell Marshall and/or Bobby Simmons with next year's mid-level exception. However, I think the Heat will win the Eastern Conference, I just don't like our odds against San Antonio or the Suns. IMO, a team like the Sonics will go out in round 1 or 2. They won't last.

If EJ can keep it up...our chances increase by one hell of a number.


Uh, ok

Exactly. It's obvious that you're here to cause trouble, not talk basketball. If you didn't make your original post in this thread to get at me, you would've replied to my last post. Happy Holidays. :)

Id like either of those guys. But isnt Donyell more of a SG?

One of my problems with EJ is his consistancy. Im not saying he needs to score over 20 every night, but at least most of the time show some offensive consistancy. What we're getting with him is defense, which is good considering R.Butler wasnt up to the task, but Eddie needs to show us he can keep this up for the long haul. SF is the key for us to be a complete team, now that U-Don and D.Jones stepped it up. Our bench isnt that good but good enough for now.

Donyell is more like a very weak small forward.

Marshall is a SF/PF. He's 6'9/230, but he doesn't really have a post game offensively. He doesn't play as aggressive as his size would lead you to assume, but he's a good rebounder. He'd make teams pay big time for putting 2-3 guys on Shaq. He has great range for his size and is an excellent 3-point shooter. He's not exactly a guy you can rely on defensively, I mean...he's not a shot blocker and he does give up on some plays that are questionable.

Bobby Simmons came out of nowhere and he has been a hell of a player for the Clips this year. He's a 6'6/228 SF who is #5 in the NBA in FG percentage at 53%. His long-range shot is really starting to come along, and that's something that Bob McAdoo would improve by the minute here in Miami. He's an aggressive type of SF who can take it to the rim. To tell you the truth...he reminds me a lot of Caron Butler.

isnt caron a free agent after this season? Any chance we could bring him back year with the MLE?

according to realgm.com, Butler isn't eligible until the summer of 2006!

Plus he's restricted!

I remember just a few years back Donyell had a big year, I believe it was 2000 when he was with the Jazz. Wonder what happened..

So what about Simmon's defense? Does he have good perimeter defense?

The Lakers picked up his option a day before the deadline. I wish they didn't, though. I'd love to have Caron back, and I know he'd love to be back in Miami.

Yeah, he's a good perimeter defender as well as inside. His defense also reminds me of Caron Butler, and Butler is one hell of a defender. Simmons lacks a long-range shot, but that is improving by the week. He's a bull when it comes to taking it to the basket. I'd love to have Simmons.

Jimmy Jackson has been suspended for not reporting to the Hornets. The Heat should definitely look into him, he could be the missing piece!

Look for a player who doesn't report to his team's practice?? I don't think so, that character is not one I look for in a player.
