Heat Livingston Making Comeback With Heat?

After suffering probably one of the most disgusting knee injuries I can recall in years, it would appear as though Shaun has choosen the Heat to make his comeback with. Good luck to him and the Heat might have another fan in thriller now.

Miami will be good, They have a nice team even though I cant stand Marion and Beasly seems just plainly stupid. It would be a great signing. Im pretty sure they will make the playoffs.

Wade is just going to run over teams this year. IMO he will be a MVP candidate for sure.

why do i have this feeling that wade is going to get injured this season?
oh yeah, because its wade, and he gets injured almost every season.

the heat's successes lay on Dwade's shoulders.
if he's healthy - 82 games healthy - i think they squeak out a .500 season and make it to the playoffs.
unfortunately, i dont see him playing more than 65 games this year.... somethings gonna happen.

Eze says hes officially signed. I hope he can pull an Amare and come back better than ever. He was one of my top 3 favorites when he played, and if hes healthy and now out of the isolation every play system in LAC he can finally show off his true talent.

But thats assuming he'll be fully healthy again which is doubtful, but if hes signed that at least means he can play and make some sort of an impact. Its not like theres a lot ofcompettition at PG in Miami as they probably have the worst PG rotation in the league besides OKC. Go Livingston!!!

BTW Miami will make the playoffs if Wade plays 75 games. Their starting lineup is above average if Beasley works out, its just their bench thats somewhat of a problem with inconsistant players(Zo with injuries, Banks/Quinn/Wright) outside of James Jones.

bucks will only steal that last spot if Ramon Sessions turns out to be the next Jose calderon.
their best player is a chucker. LOL.
they better pray that Sessions pans out, otherwise its another underacheiving season for them.

Luke Ridenour/Ramon Sessions
Redd/Bell
Jefferson/Alexander
CV31/Malik Allen
Bogut/Elson

Their starting lineup is solid but their bench is deplorable outside of Sessions/Ridnour. I'll take Miami's starting lineup+potential solid bench guys over theirs anyday. Miami's D also looks much better so thats another plus for them over the Bucks. The Bucks defence inside and out may be the worst in the league this year.

you post their lineup without even a description...
was i supposed to be blown away?
is that lineup so good that it needs no description?

they won 25 games last year.... you think they'll make the playoffs because Richard Jefferson is now on the team???? since when did RJ become Jesus?

as a said before, their best player is a chucker.... redd is going downhill and will probably play 65 games.
Jefferson will be fighting for scraps... wishing he had a PG to spoon feed him.
CV31 will be in the doghouse all season long...
Bogut is the only player i actually like on this squad.

as i said before, Ramon Sessions is their one bright spot... if he can come in and replicate what he did in the last 2 weeks of last season... they might do well.

Compare that to Miamis starting line up.

Buvks will score, Wade will score, Miami will not.

Why wont Miami score? Marion scores 15-20 a game, Beasley is expected to score 15 a game, Haslem scores 10-12 a game, and Chalmers can shoot it from deep. Their starting lineup is good around Wade, but theyre undersized even though theyre quick and should be decent defensively on the perimeter at least. Both teams benches are questionable like I said but I'd take Miami over MIL any day of the week because they have the best player and at least one very good player around him+3-5 solid/good players around him

It should also be noted that Wade is easily one of most clutch and best 4th quarter players in the league. Last year he was injured and Miami sucked balls, and he still averaged like the 2nd most points in 4th quarters.

I just don't like Milwaukee's chemistry. Redd, Jefferson, Villaneuva, Bogut... they're just not winning guys. I expect the same situation as last year where in every close game Redd and Jefferson just start chucking. Skiles has a lot of work cut out for him.

sorry snooch... i take miami 10 times outta 10 if i have the choice.
miami is going to be one of the more exciting teams to watch this season...
wade is a 30 point player, marion will run around and get his 20, and beasley is the best scorer coming outta college.

compare that with milwaukee...
redd is a chucker who will shoot all night to get his 22, RJ will need to work his ass off with no pg to even have a shot at 20, and CV will have a hard time putting up more than 17.

that team just reaks of boredom.

they didnt come close to making the playoffs last year.
they lose mo williams and yi, and add RJ and you think they got better?
yikes.

Because he's shooting around 43% from the field and attempting around 18 a game.
Yet averaging 22.

you think Mo and Yi are good players?

Beasley cant learn his plays and feels he is an MVP in waiting, a tweener who has no real position. To big and slow for SF to small for PF.

Miami has no center and no Point Guard.

Marion will NEVER be the same player away from Nash.(to explain that would be a foolish waste of time)

Wade is a beast but there is nothing else. So much is going to be relied on him to take the team anywear it is going to wear him out, again.

Skiles is a good coach, everyone already forget what he did with a fresh new team in Chicago
