It's not the fact that we're losing. If it was a close, hard fought game throughout and we still loss, okay I'll live with that. It's the fact that we have these double-digit leads and just BLOW IT out of nowhere. Like the effort completely disappears. THAT'S what pisses me off.

Like how does Nunn have like 24 points but basically never touch the ball in the last 3 minutes?

never thought that this trade was meant to improve us very much more like cost saving for next szn which is useless to us.

everything failed the moment that Spicy Italian decided not to be with us. that would have made some sense though i wasn't too thrilled about it.

The defense has been beyond awful. Not a Heat team i’m used to and we have a team of good individual defenders. Problem is we play with nothing inside leaving everyone exposed.

Nunn has absolutely no lateral quickness, cannot play defense period due to no lateral quickness.
Robinson aside from being a fouling machine if not open is useless.
Butler is not clutch. His IQ shrinks in such moment.
Bam breaks at the FT line during crunch and seems confused as fok during this time.
Dragic can’t create and finish like he used to. Limited defender. Very limited.
The new guys are lost in space.
DJJ is not a good team defender and one trick pony.
Olynyk SUCKS period. Slow mofo on both Dand O.
But Riley screwed up by not getting another big defensive body to help a young Bam who’s playing Center and PG and is clearly overwhelmed lol, not the best formula. Also Riley putting too much trust on Spo’s unimpressive adventure.

How are they going to get another great player for a team that can’t win games

This is what happens when you don't have enough vet scorers who know how to end games, you have Dragic and Butler but he's still in distribution mode so he's nowhere near in the flow of scoring when he needs to be.

Jimmy is too focused on getting assists and making passes than scoring. Dude will drive to the paint and then pass to a guy that isn't open. I've seen this a lot. He would be better off putting the ball up and hoping for a good bounce. We need him to score 24-30 points.

Miami could have had him... OKC let Miami talk to the agent, it was that close, Miami passed because of 2021. Miami's past on multiple players with good talent because of 2021. So there is that till Giannis signs his max this summer.

Pat is in charge of the actual basketball. Those things are for the Arisons to worry about.

When your teams best player is Jimmy Butler, your the Bulls and nothing more. We saw this in Chicago guys, he isn’t cut out for this. He’s 3rd banana material. He was fine in Philly but Miami’s Latin ass was too much to pass up
