    Miami will be fine. Making the playoffs in the East means mediocrity not excellence. Surprised they let Lucas III get signed to Chicago when they need a PG. I'm sure someone will rise out of the D League by the end of the season if they get desperate. They can hide their ancient centers on offence if they find a strong jump shooting pg, heal up and work on chemistry during the season. Here's to hoping they never find a point guard.

    As far a Antoine Wright he's had a few personal issues come up, maybe he requested to be cut? Though they could have put him on injured reserve instead...either way it sucks. He's a fringe starter at best and until he came to Toronto never displayed a jump shot that I remember. That team is turning out to be spoiled brats not Kings and its a shame. Way too much talent. And a tough coach so no one can say there's no discipline I guess not enough of them are mature enough to handle losing gracefully.

    3 players don't make a team, I do agree with you. However, that team has too much talent concentrated on one team not to be successful. Wade was out pretty much all pre-season and they're getting used to each other. I don't undestand what's so hard to comprehend about that. Come All-star break, they'll be right as rain.

    I get that you'll like to see them fail, but there's no way they're missing the playoffs. I bet you a case of beer they'll make it to the east semis.
    they cant beat an above 500 team yet (other than orlando who we beat and they live and die by the jump shot) and you have them going to the eastern finals....does superstar fandom know no bounds??? Miami is a good not great team. they will make the playoffs in the weak east and likely be beaten (quite handily) in the first round. lebron had a better team in cleveland....is that not obvious??? didnt they win 60 games 2 years in a row??

    I liked Antoine Wright. His defense was pretty solid but his offense wasn't too good. His game reminds me a bit of Julian Wright. I wish him luck and hope a team picks him up. Does anyone know what happens to his salary if he isn't claimed off waivers? Does he still get paid?

    Cousins is a thug. He has a huge attitude problem. He needs a strong coach and respected veterans to help change his attitude. Doesn't Mr Miyage live close to Sacramento? Anyway, hopefully Westphal is doing the right thing with him, and we'll see more maturity and production in his sophmore season

    This thread was about Sacramento not Miami (may they rot in hell). And speaking of Sacramento, is anyone else surprised that Whiteside is in the D-League and is in the same boat as Alabi - that is, great potential but raw and a lot of development needed? I thought Whiteside would be picked higher in the draft and would be playing steady minutes by now.
    Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

    Funny. Cousins got kicked out of practice yesterday. Immaturity issues, probably, again. That's why he dropped in the draft, too.
    Yes I saw that too. Guess his new maturity lasted as long as a Shaq free throw streak.

    the last thing they need is a PG. Lebron and wade are both requiring the ball in their hands so adding a third player in that regard would be pointless...no pun intended.
    What Miami should really do, and it would shock the basketball world would be to trade Lebron for a top C and other strong pieces. As much as Bosh is not as grEat as his career stats and play make one believe, he is a good pairing with Wade. When watching the games as well the heat flow well when Lebron is sitting his ass on the bench and go discombobulated when he 'graces the court with his presence'.
