    True be told. It also works it's way into jagged edges.

    Miami had big health problems.

    They had a youthful coach that was easily dominated (sound familiar as in experience).

    Sometimes you must understand the image of a pin-hold camera: what is up is really down. The mind's eye (as in coach) is to understand the different levels of mountain-tops and the possibilities of Hell.

    Mammon also joins Belial in ridiculing Moloch's idea of war. He then goe son to propose an alternative to acceptance of the inevitable, namely, the developing the possibilities of Hell:
    "...This desert soil
    Wants not her hidden lustre, gems and gold;
    Nor want we skill or art, from whence to raise
    Magnificence; and what can heaven show more?"
    and he urges them

    "To found this nether empire, which might rise,
    By policy, and long process of time,
    In emulation opposite to heaven."

    Or, put another way, "Let's start developing the few products we have left, and perhaps develop some more along the same line, and drop the products that we've been beaten on. Then if we put our backs into it we can be a big firm again, in different lines."

    Management and Machiavelli, Anthony Jay

    If you play more games, isn't that just like working out more?

    I'm not convinced on the mileage argument.

    The NBA just ran a series of ads that showed players who have been eliminated working out twice as hard as what you go through in a bball game. Maybe staying in the playoffs is less stressful on the body?

    Sorta like a divorce. As it develops, all sorts of Ads claim that untold of opportunities await you. Your freedom means less stress. You now have the opportunity to develop yourself. I don't really know what you are after, but I might assume that NBA salary expectations have certain high level expectations that typical gym memberships might assume jejune.

    The difference might be you get beat up more in the games. Think of wade running into Cardinal or Wade throwing down Rajon Rondo.

    Also a controlled workout won't risk all the tweaks and strains that a competitive game would.
