    20....and 6???

    Dude's never averaged below 6.6 and that was with Lebron and the Heat's high efficiency offense and being asked to play as a stretch 4.
    He's a 20/9 player and if Deng stays healthy and Wade stays relatively healthy I easily see Heat as a top 5 team in the East. Spoelstra's not suddenly going to forget how to coach........remember that both years before Lebron joined he took a team of Wade and junk to the playoffs.
    He will be asked to carry the offense more and I can't see him exerting that much energy to get rebounds ... As for before James .. Wade had younger legs when he was carrying those teams to the playoffs .. those days are long gone ..

    Saying that ... This team can be 6th 7th and 8th but still be has the abilty to win the conference .. Keeping Wade healthy means they might not try to blow their load and get a top 5 finish ..

    Yup... against the nets. Guess he agrees with Ujiri.

    Rudy in Sacto will be interesting, he trimmed down and played with USA this summer ... He and Boogie might not be the best mentors to young guns like MacKlemore and Stauskas, but you never know.

    The triple-double that cost us Harrison Barnes, who was the main target in that draft.

    The win against the Nets made us miss out on Lillard. The coin flip with GSW made us miss out on Barnes.

    Give me Barnes over Ross anyday of the week. Also a better fit for the Raps. He's in a bad situation in Oakland because the Warriors are loaded with GREAT players. Barnes usually is the 4th/5th option for that team.

    16 points 5 rebs by Bosh with 2 min left in half. His numbers will be up, dude. Trust us.

    Bosh has a lot of pride, and he added a lot of dimension to his game — improved passing, defense, range out to three point line.

    I think he's going surprise a lot of people this year. I can't wait to see him go up against Kevin Love and the Cavs. He's going to go play pissed.

    His D and range I'll give you. Not sure his passing is any better. His rebounding has also declined (and we'll see how much of it was due to role). And he plays in the post a lot less, so we'll see how he does since he'll probably be asked to go back to that more.

    I think he'll come close to his 09-10 numbers. No reason he shouldn't. And now that he has the Championship pedigree, he should want it just as bad, if not more, if he feels James slighted them.

    Meh...I expect his numbers to go up, and could even be impressive, but he's not a guy who carries a team. He had a huge night, but they got a randomly amazing night offensively from Norris Cole, a normally bad offensive player. They're going to need a lot of random big nights from people you probably won't expect it from.

    Oh, I agree. I'm not saying they're going to win anything, let alone their division. Washington should win that. Just saying his number will rival those of his Raptor days.

    Give me one good argument for this point.

    Barnes: 40% FG - 35% 3PT - 9.5 ppg - 28 mpg
    Ross: 42% FG - 40% 3PT - 10.9 ppg - 27 mpg

    So Barnes plays more minutes, is less efficient, and scores less. How is he a better fit than Ross?

    Jose's out with a calf strain for 2-3 weeks. Sucks to be a Knicks fan.

    Vince Carter top 25 all time in scoring .. He is 145 points from 24th spot and King James is 20 points behind VC and so Vince Carter maybe bumped out of 25th spot after just one game in the 2014 season ..

    vince will most likely be caught by james but will overtake parish and barkly this year and Iverson next year.
    Looks like James wanted VC to remain in top 25 spot for one extra day ... Lebron usually 20 plus point guy had a bad night last night ..
