Good point.

Good point.

Medical retirement. I believe the player still gets paid by the insurance company that underwrote the contract and the team saves the money on the cap.

Good knowledge.

According to multiple league sources, there is mutual interest between Allen and the Heat. The most the Heat can offer is a contract starting at $3 million per year, which is known as the taxpayer's midlevel. Allen could get more money elsewhere, but the Heat offer an attractive portfolio that goes deeper than cash. ESPN.com

I'd LOVE to have Ray Allen replace Mike Miller (who will likely retire). That will be f**king awesome!


He would be an awesome addition. They can't fit top tier guys. But a midlevel guy like Allen who wants to win again would be great. He's probably better than Miller in some ways at 3's. Miller is always hurt and doesn't provide you anything on defense. Total liability on D. The one good side to Miller is he is tall so he can shoot over people for the 3's. But I think Allen makes up for that because he is quicker an relentless at coming off screens and trying to get open around the arc.

Allen would be an idiot not to take it. On Boston, he has to run like crazy and defend some of the better players. On Miami, he can stand around and get wide open shots and defend the opponents weakest guard.

I would love to have Allen especially if Miller retires. If Miller stays you add one more excellent 3 point shooter. Maybe one of the best historically at least. I don't know how much he has left. But he can stand around the 3 point line and bomb 3's wide open for 2 - 3 years at least I think.

Wow...Lebron got a long standing O at the Late Show with David Letterman. I was certain there will be some boos - by the reaction, Lebron looked a little surprised too.

Deserved it!

Yea, I want Ray Allen on Miami regardless of the Miller situation. Allen will be a great great fit in Miami. He can REALLY stretch the defense.

Allen plus Miller would be rediculous with Lebron getting the double teams being the great passer that he is. At least Allen would offset the loss of Miller somewhat if he has to retire due to injuries. But if he can be healthy I want both next year if we can have them.

From what I've read - seems like Miller is done...at least for the next year or so. He may take a year off and then decide. Allen has his own health issues, but he should be fine by the time season starts - but Miami has to be cautious. The mini-mid-level they have is extremely valuable and they have to make sure that it counts.

I'd like Miami to somehow swing a trade for Dalembert or someone like him. Houston is looking to dump his contract...I'd trade the contracts of Mike Miller and James Jones (if they can be traded, not sure since they will retire in this scenario) and then sign Ray Allen in FA. Hopefully, both James and Miller will decide their futures very soon.
What about Wade and his knee issues? There has been some talk of minor surgery in the offseason? How serious is the Wade situation for the offseason or next year? Have you heard anything about that? I think I'm more concerned about that overall than anything. If we get Allen great. Or some other good player in FA. I'm not too concerned about it though.

Also it would be good to sign Chalmers again. I believe he is a FA too right?

Latest on Wade's injury and more:

Dwyane Wade isn't sure whether he will need off-season knee surgery that could knock him out of this summer's London Olympics but will consider hiring a shooting coach regardless. Meanwhile, LeBron James plans to add another element to his game, even after another MVP season.

Wade said he might work with a shooting coach "for the first time ever" after a postseason in which he shot 31 percent on mid-range jumpers (50 for 163) and 29 percent on three-pointers (10 for 34).

James also has "thought about what I'm going to do personally to improve my game. I always love the offseason. I'll have an opportunity to come back with something new. There is more to add. Not telling you guys what yet."



Looking back, James said "the best thing that happened to our team, which was the worst at the time, was Chris Bosh getting hurt because it gave (Erik Spoelstra) a lineup change we didn't know was possible, with Shane Battier starting at the 4.

"We always envisioned Shane being a backup 3. When I went out, he would come in. When he started at the 4 and guarded (Indiana's) David West and takes one of the bigs out of the paint and opened up the floor for me and D-Wade and gave us a lineup we so needed, gave us space we needed and also an unbelievable defensive lineup."

LeBron James ‏@KingJames
While watching the Draft my son Bryce ask "Is Ray Allen gonna play for the Heat". I said "I don't know, I hope so"


C'mon Jesus...!!!

You gotta get that hate up out your heart, son, you gotta get that hate up out your heart.
