kicking himself for being so emotionally invested in the Roller-coaster Raptors

Miami is in trouble minutes wise with Wade/Beasley/Marion (no way can Marion play the 5). Nonetheless, Wade plus anyone is scary, let alone those two. They will most definitely go small at times this year, and tempt teams to run with them. Against our lineup, in theory, it should fail because of our size up front, but we all know the history of the Raptors interior D...

Aside from being pathetically weak in the middle, Miami is a scary team this year. They have a bunch of options to try out at PG (Mario Chalmers could become good one day, Chris Quinn is unselfish albeit a bit crappy so far in his young career, and Marcus Banks could be decent off the bench.) They have a lot of young guys who could become decent - Dorrell Wright (who's just 22!), Yakhouba Diawara, Chalmers and of course Michael Beasley.
