Look for Riley to let his athletes, be athletes. The season is all but lost, give the scarce South Beach crowd, an uptempo, high flying gameplan. Jason Williams has never been known for his halfcourt leadership, but he undoubtably can run the break, and use his athleticism to create shots for players that can fill the lane. Shawn Marion thrives in the transition, as does young SG Dorell Wright, the purest athlete on the roster. Throw in a healthy Dwyane Wade, and you’ll give the Miami faithful an exciting brand of basketball, get some seats filled, and hey even win a couple games.
Let’s not be foolish, the reason for the Marion-O’Neal deal was simply to open up some cap space for next season. Ricky Davis, Jason Williams, Alonzo Mourning, Chris Quinn, Earl Barron, and a couple others are in their final contract year. Plus, Shawn Marion can opt out of his contract. Basically meaning, that its possible that the Miami Heat could be close to 50 million under the cap, going into next season. Add a lottery pick to that scenario, and maybe things in South Beach ain’t so bad.
Everyone knows Shaq will be a huge force for Phoenix in the short term (this season), the Suns did what they had to do to challenge in the Western Conference. But Miami made the right choice as well. Sure, they won’t make the playoffs. But the games of Miami losing 100-80 are over for this season.
Now they will lose games 110-100.
Hey, its an improvement.
There’s always next year.

Sure thats five months away, but I have some thoughts, and there are guys that I’d have my eyes on, if I were an NBA GM.So, let’s play this game. If today was June 26th, and I was an NBA GM, what players would I have on my draft board. Here are the TOP 10 players, Parliament would select as of today.Granted this list is how I think it should go, not how I foresee it going, come June.
NBA Comparison: Tyson Chandler
