No one was crying when DAL, BOS, and LAL had payrolls in excess of $90 million dollars annually and Miami hasn't reached that plateau yet. And I remember the Spurs TANKING A SEASON while sitting David Robinson and most all of their starting lineup to get the number 1 overall pick in the draft to select Duncan. Because of this the NBA changed the rules and went to an NBA draft lottery system. A little tidbit of info for the people who proclaim such things as BUILT NOT BOUGHT!!

IMO, a legitimate C would hurt Miami more than he would help them. In order to the play the drive & kick system that they run, they need to space the floor. Riley knows this, and that's why instead of going after big guys, he went and quadrupled up on shooters like Miller, Battier, Allen, & Lewis.

I'm not sure who would be available for a $14M exception, and Miami doesn't have much in the way of picks that would need to go along with that. The only team that comes to mind that I know is looking to clear cap space is Boston, and I don't think they'd be interested in helping Miami, interested in what they'd have to offer, and I don't think KG would be an upgrade.

I felt pretty confident that Miami would win these last two titles, but I don't think they win it next year. I think that team shot their wad with this title run, very reminiscent of the '10 Lakers. But that 3rd title is the one that puts you in that next level of all-time great teams, IMO. 80's Celtics & Lakers, 90's Bulls, early 2000's Lakers, Spurs, etc.

get a big man that can hit the 3

It will be Bosh, Tim, Parker, Leonard and Green starting for SA !!!

You sure you don't want Wade for Ginobili?

Unless he asks to be traded, he will quit as a Spurs. That's how loyal we are. You only get these 3 for Bosh. The kicker is you get insider information on how a real franchise is run.

I wasn't gonna do this, but...after that comment I gotta point out, man...

After all those years Popovich implemented Hack-A-Shaq; even used it against the Warriors this season...it was fitting that the Spurs lost their 5th championship at the charity strip.

Oh...and RUN THIS


Another bought player.

Yeup...completely within the rules...and wayyyy more ethical than hack-a-shaq

Naa...Duncan, Parker, and Ginobili play for free.

Although I agree with most of this, the draft lottery was put in place long before '97. And Boston actually had the best odds of winning the lottery but the Spurs did.
I'm starting to think that people have more forgiveness for Mike Vick running a dog fighting rink and Ray Lewis being connected(allegedly) to a homicide than they have for Lebron leaving a basketball team and, stupidly, running a live, national television program to announce his departure. The hate is unparalleled.
The guys on sportscenter were talking about Bosh for Demarcus Cousins lol
f**king idiots

Would Cousins fit in defensively like Bosh has? Bosh might not have scored a ton but he moves well and covers a lot of ground defensively which is key in the Miami Heat defensive system. He was playing out of position after all most times

Demacus' dumb ass couldn't handle it in Miami as a city. He is too dumb and immature.

I don't really want Cousins. I'd rather keep Bosh. Way too temperamental. Now, if Lebron and Wade can keep him in check...then it's a great trade for Miami but that's a big IF.

The guy I want is Derrick Favors. Give me Derrick Favors and trade for another guy who can give 12-15 pts a night consistently and play solid defense.

I dont think that is a good trade for either team. Cousins has more upside but more risk at the same time. I'd be surprised if Miami deals Bosh and breaks the big 3 up.

I think it's a decent chance they do break it up. If they don't find a Center to play next to Bosh...they should, IMHO. Bosh is playin' out of his position at both ends. Smart thing to do would be to trade him to get couple of young talented guys. Miami doesn't need a Center who can score 20 a game. They need someone who can get 10+ rebounds consistently and can protect the rim.

"When Robinson missed the first six weeks of the '97 season with a back injury, the Spurs staggered to a 3-15 start. He returned and immediately broke his left foot, inadvertently murdering their season"

"some mistakenly remember the Spurs tanking for a Duncan lottery ticket. Not entirely true! Injuries decimated them: Robinson, Chuck Person, Charles Smith and Sean Elliott missed a combined 264 games. They finished 20-62; only Boston and Vancouver did worse. Since the expansion Grizzlies were ineligible for the no. 1 pick, the Celtics had a 36.3 percent chance at getting Duncan. San Antonio? 21.4 percent."

Um, what did you say again...Spurs tanked? Did you know BOS had the best chance to get Tim in that lottery?
