Riley's always had very little patience with guys that he thought were mentally soft. Dude's like a mafia boss. I'd imagine that he's furious with LeBron right now, not because he didn't play well, but because of the incredibly passive effort that he gave in the process.
This team's his last chance to add to his legacy, and he's not gonna think twice about dealing a guy for the sake of making his team better, especially one that's been there for all of a year.
On Orlando's side, if D12 was staying there no matter what, he would have signed by now. They've offered all they can offer, and they will likely have to offer even less once the new CBA is in place. I'd guess that Howard wants to see what Otis Smith can do to improve the team, but it's gonna be hard to add all that much talent with their current cap/talent situation. There ain't much that people want outside of Howard.So like dobo said, you risk losing D12 for nothing. LeBron would be a very, VERY nice consolation prize.
It makes sense for both teams, but the biggest issue would be whether or not D12 wants to go there.
Talk about overreaction. LeBron isn't going anywhere. And LOL at LeBron being a consolation prize.
Overreaction? Howard instead of LeBron CLEARLY makes Miami a better team than they are now.
And LOL at you talking about overreaction after blowing your wad in the ECFs with ridiculous things like "Witness THAT, haters", and then getting really, REALLY quiet during the Finals.
I certainly did Witness the Quitness in the Finals.
You sound like a Skip Bayless clone. I still say the Miami Heat will win a lot of championships and they got way farther than anyone thought they would at the start of the season. They are still way ahead of schedule. Just wait until they add another MLE this off season.
And I got quiet because I went out of town for 4 days and didn't even watch the last 3 Finals games. It's not like I just disappeared from Other Sports, I was quiet on the whole zone.
didnt they sign 7 year contracts and predict 7 titles or so? sounds like they behind schedule now
