    That also means that only the really great coaches...like Michael Curry...would survive the cut.

    Ex-Wolverine Juwan Howard joins Heat | detnews.com | The Detroit News

    Will Howard become the first Wolverine to win a ring??? Somebody (Wolverine Alumni) check to see if this is true or not.

    Another question... are C-Webb's knees strong enough to join his fab-five brother in Miami and get that elusive ring??

    This is kind of obscure Dre but Eric Riley won a ring with the Rockets, I believe. Strange because he wasn't a starter in college either.

    Those sound about right Round...I knew the Wolves had to have a couple of NBA champs in the mix...

    Do you know if he got a ring or not?? He was out injured and was not on the playoff roster.

    Then again if the trainer and the ball boy got one, Riley probably did too....

    Maybe there are too many teams now. 80's LA had Magic and Kareem. Boston had Bird, McHale and Parrish.

    I am interested to see how this turns out. How good are they really going to be? Is Bosh really a super star? He has never done much in the playoffs.
    Wade and Lebran were battling for the scoring title - have to share the ball now.

    My guess is that most people will start losing interest after a couple of months but you will never know it with how the media will try to milk it as long as possible. Couple of months and then it will pick up again in the playoffs.

    We will see.

    Well... Lebron joined Wade's team. You can't blame Wade for picking up a world class sidekick. Riley's job is to get talent. Job well done. Chris Bosh ain't nobody. He'll be a bigger star being a 18 and 10 guy on a championship team than he would be being 24 and 10 guy on a 40 win team. He's not really a "Franchise Big Man". He's always been a 2nd/3rd best guy on a championship team type talent. Kind of like Gasol, but not quite as good.

    That's exactly the way I see it. Two superstars and a really good PF/C - who does not like to play C by the way.

    Arroyo re-signing with the Heat.

    This team is ridiculous. Arroyo loves to give up the rock, and with this team, he knows that he has to give it up early. As far as PG duties go, all he has to do is get the ball over the time-line, push the ball on the break, and take wide open threes. Can he do that? Check, check, and check.

    Big Z is also the perfect starting center on this team. He plays in the high-post and can stretch out to the three point line, leaving the middle wide open for LBJ and Wade, and when the other team goes small, he can kill PFs on the low block. Defensively, he can block shots and rebound. Good passer.

    Mike Miller might win the Sixth Man trophy.

    Juwan Howard gives them a very nice 3rd PF/C

    Just sick.

    Don't forget that Haslem is there too as a pesky big guy.

    So should we just hand them trophy in November and cancel the season, or make them earn it and see if they hang on without Wade and the old timers getting injured for an extended time frame??
