Jimmy called out Bam in the nicest way possible. Let’s see how he responds. Probably much of the same.

Because we have nobody of size on this roster and we need someone big to practice against. Seems like every time we play against a team with a legit big we look shell shocked.

Good we need more if this. What we have been seeing is inexcusable. Players who have left the organization look free. We have talent but the coaching and rotations have been Mickey mouse horse chit.


Tweeting about a bad game as a media member won't do **** to be honest, the Heat media need to challenge Spo during the zoom calls.

About time someone called out Bam’s passive act. I said it all “offseason”, due to the shortened time to prepare for the season this team would rise as high as Bam’s play. You look at the numbers in a nutshell and they look great, but he doesn’t give you enough ‘nasty’ on a consistent basis.

After scoring 41 on the Nets in January:
“From now on, I have to be ultra-aggressive from the start.”

looks like early the reporters were trying to bait Jimmy into blaming Spo and Jimmy danced around it. Clearly Jimmy does not agree with our approach. I really hope Riley is paying attention. Not saying Spo has to go but there needs to be a more reasonable basketball mind in that huddle running things.

The line up he started the 4th with screamed lack of urgency too, wow

We are playing a dangerous game still allowing any big to look like Wilt Chamberlain

Butler looked completely dejected, team play with no hunger nor urgency, exept for butler and ariza, and vincent



Butler needs to start becoming verbally abusive in practice like he did in Minny.


Yeah but more importanty Spo and front office put this team in a bad position, with thier stuborness and unwilingness to adjust

Herro needs serious revamp


Herro right now straight garbage.
Could be tired legs or straight sucking. But Spo is counting on the wrong players game in and game out, and can’t see to recognize when particular player needs to be bench. Probably one of the worst coach in such category and very frustrating. It’s gotten so old that I wouldn’t mind seeing another coach guiding the Heat.


Sorry this dumb. Spo took this team to the finals last season. Name me any other coach maybe apart from Pop who would have done that. Spo is somewhat at fault but majority is on players. Dragic is on the decline as expected. But we expecting the younger players Herro, Bam & Duncan to pick up the slack and take another jump. Bam has shown glimpses when Jimmy was out but reverted back. Herro & Duncan have been worse than they were during the bubble.


Spo didnt take anybody anywhere, players were hitting shots and playing semi good defense, Herro, Nunn and Duncan were and still are horrible defensive players, Spoelstra does not make better players out of shi tty players, in the big three era, we won in spite of Spoelstra. He is bad with rotations, bad with his in game adjustment in general, bad in preparation before a game. It is a miracle when our team comes out with a defined working strategy agains our oponnent. No, Spoelstra is not a good coach.

Spo needs someone who can challenge his ideas. Groupthink is one of the worst things that can happen to an organization and this organization is showing classic signs of it. Inability to adjust to changing circumstances, withdrawn organizational attitude, and commitment to status quo. Anyone else seeing that? This just continues to happen to Spo coached teams. He is brilliant at planning out a team system, but a system can only get you so far.

The biggest signing this offseason could be an assistant coach with confidence and experience.

It’s an organizational failure that we consistently see with Spo coached teams. Players giving up. Blame definitely falls on players, but this has happened with so many players on Heat teams that it definitely is just as much on Spo.

They guys I want to see on the floor:

Bam Butler Ariza Vincent Dedmon Okpala Iggie

The shooters need to make them shots to stay on the floor, they get abused on defense...

So tired to see every opposing center dominating the paint against us, by now every team has the memo and playbook to play against us, the switching defense does not work with our non defenders and Spo often play 3 of them simultanaously, a recipe for failure


I still can't beleive the lineup he put in the floor to start the 4th in such a tight important game, there was 0 urgency, almost look arrogant WTF

The loss of Dan Craig hurts. He was the only assistant that wasn’t scared of Standing up to Spo. He kept him in check.

Quinn and all of these other guys are too much of a ‘yes man’ type.


This season reminds me a lot of the 2014-2015 NBA season. We had 32 year old Wade, 30 year old Bosh, 30 year old Deng, and for some reason were still a sub-500 team (even before Bosh went down).

I never thought much of Dan Craig. Juwan was the one that got away.
