That was an ugly, ugly loss for the Heat last night.

Afterward Dwyane Wade was clearly frustrated, but as he has all season he talked about the learning and growing and getting better. He’s right, it’s a process.

But with 21 games left in the season, a few of these lessons maybe should have sunk in already.

    Not sure if anyone caught Bosh’s comments about, and this is not a quote, walking the walk instead of talking the talk. I wonder if it was a shot at LBJ after his “war” tweet.

    War! What is is good for? Absolutely nothing! Say it again! War! What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!

    These guys are a joke. To loose after having such a large lead at home can only be described as humiliating. I wonder what was going through Riley’s mind while he sat and watched his team fall apart.

    Riley does not have a thought in his head. Just like putting together this team with no idea of how it would work. They have all addmitted that they thought putting this kind of talent together and figuring it all out later was thier superior plan. Or lack ther of. A lesson to all of us on not planning anything and expecting good results to find it does not work. In fact, I had a grad school proff give that as the definition of insanity. Keep shooting from the hip Pat Riley! Even a blind squirrel finds a nut occasionally. Let us know how that’s working for you!

    You guys are right. Sad, but I guess that what happens when you let the players run the team. It’s not a well thought of line up, much of their resources are tied up in 3 players, no more resources to sign good supporting players, especially a decent point guard in his prime. Let’s see if they’ll find a way.

    This dude D-Wade ( part-time model ) is the most over-rated player in the league. 3 point shot – broke ! Mid-range shot – average ! Driving to the basket out of control with the one zig-zag move – D League quality !

    Friday against the Spurs !

    O.K. I tried to support the minority coach ( Spoelstra ). But he should be fired IMMEDIATELY ! The Spurs ran the same pick and pop play all night. The PG would dribble to the top of the key, the center or power forward would pick the defender. The PG would just go stand in the corner, while his Miami defender rotated to the paint.

    BANG…….WIDE OPEN 3 !

    THE SPURS MADE 17 WIDE OPEN 3s !!!

    Spoelstra NEVER made an adjustment !

    I question if he has more than one play in his play book for offense or defense ! Essentially he is enjoying some success because he has the best player in the league on his team LBJ !
