Now if Wade was training with CP3 rumours would be swirling.

Nice breakdown on Butler's game. Thoughts?

Whoever made this video has a lot bball knowledge. It was fun to watch and it was very insightful. PG is ahead of Butler as a player, but Butler as the undisputed leader of the Heat should have a big season in 2019/20. I predict this will be his most productive season as an individual player. The Heat will be a much better team because of it.

I'm glad that we decided not to draft Nassir Little, he had a terrible SL averaging 3 PPG over 4 games. Too many people here thought that we could turn him into the next Kawhi.

How can you not root for this guy? Those who have really played will notice the handle is still pretty loose. Doesn't quite yet have the rock on a string and you can catch the subtle readjustments to regain the rhythm of drill. Still, it's night and day from what it used to be. I believe we will not only see improvement in his pick and roll game but also in attacking off the dribble this season. 8-)

i like this progression with Winslow improve one skill at a time. this should have been done since rookie days. eventually he will be a beast but will take time.

This should be happening with all our guys

handles
footwork
strength
shot

I feel like with time this Heat staff is learning form their mistakes and will eventually start having top notched development but we are not there yet. Awesome to see Winslow working hard.

I don’t get it. There’s been moments he’s looked pedestrian, sure. Growing pains for a player who was able to capitalize on a grown mans body and high IQ for years before the league. Now his skillset is catching up and he’s still only 23. Every team would love to have a two way playmaking wing with an efficient catch and shoot 3. Especially a player that’s trending upwards with his kind of work ethic.

Plus the dude has gotten the UD/Wade stamp of approval. If you can’t root for the kid, I doubt you really ride with the Heat.

He is a project. I don't think no one here thought he was gonna blossom early. Tyler Herro is a player who is fundamentally sound for his age.

One thing we can all say is Winslow works hard. The Heat has put a lot of work into his skills in which he didn't have when he entered into the league. Took him a long while but it's finally paying off.

The odds of him ever blossoming is stacked against him. It's not easy to become a reliable jump-shooter.

Hopefully, Dragic will be one of those players that don't fall off a cliff offensively and defensively after their 33rd birthday like Manu or Vince Carter.

Reliable? I think as a shooter he will be further along than Winslow was as a rook. His odds are better than Winslows coming into the league. Shooting wasn't his biggest problem. It was understanding the game. He has great physical attributes and good skills, it was the mental part he was far behind. You seen how fast his play excelled once he started to grasp the knowledge he was getting from coach K. I would bet on teachable attributes to improve over physical attributes.

Rookie Winslow was a terrible shooter so that's setting an extremely low bar for Little to pass. Why are you downplaying Little's lack of range when he looked awful in SL? Shooting might not be his biggest problem but it's one of his glaring weaknesses.
