    So the Bulls are expected to waive Willie Reed. He's having a down season, but why not snag him if he clears waivers? He's a known commodity who could be had cheaply. Miami could use another big with Olynyk out and he would provide solid rim protection on the second unit.

    Dante sucks and I guess this just clears up money for a guy that gets bought out.

    I do not remember that, though I believe you. That trade looks HORRIBLE now. This is hilarious:

    20% of our offense before Wade left for leaner pastures was him throwing up the lob to Whiteside.

    Clint Capela must have heard that Brandan Wright is coming. 23 points and 23 rebounds on Jokic thru only 3 quarters...lol. Rockets up by damn near 30. Keep it going.

    Now, cut Tarik Black and get Joe Johnson. Crazy depth.

    Goddamn I missed Wade. Clutch block at the end. He looks like he should be playing pure PG right now. He is dishing.

    The emotional impact was great but more than that, dude impacted the game. He had a few questionable passes but I’m sure he had the first game back jitters. I think I may have underestimated what having a HOF legend on the team can do for the younger guys.

    It's amazing how bad the state of officiating in the NBA has become. It's embarrassing on almost a nightly basis.

    Wade told NBA tv that he will only play for the Heat until he decides to retire.

    Riley is right though, i havent followed much of Wade since he left, he needs to get his conditioning up to par. He’s got a good 10 lbs to lose at the very least..

    Glad to have him back. Still think he was stupid to leave. Wade looked overweight tonight. Good win for the Heat.

    Every game feels so important right now. I think Babbit and Wade were exactly what this team needed. Now we can potentially win a few rounds.

    Babbit was an extremely important pickup. Still don’t know why they got rid of him over the summer.

    That's good, maybe in the fourth quarter of the playoff games, they can bench Harden and get some clutch factor in there. I kid, I kid...

    I know. I am just pumped right now. With all the injuries the Rockets have had this year, they just added 2 really good pieces. Much needed.

    Reality has come very quick for Boston. It took just one day and the Cavs are already better than them. I hate both teams, but as i said when they made the trade, what the Cavs were able to get from utah and the lakers, it was beyond impressive. They gave up trash and kept their brooklyn pick. Its game over for the rest of us in the East.

    Oh and A healthy gordon hayward doesnt change a damn thing about that reality.

    Looks like the Cavs are throwing Dwyane Wade under the bus, several reports stating he was a cancer in the Cleveland locker room.

    I'm watching this Bulls-Magic game for some reason and it's actually fun right now. Hezonja is clearly talented. A change of scenery a la Oladipo could do him some good.

    His value has to be low right now. I wonder what he would fetch on the market.

    Ive been watching the Jazz lately and man is Donovan Mitchell sick. Been trying to watch as much of the rookies that I can and another guy who looks to be a near future star is Deaaron Fox.

    The trade deadline has passed and hes a FA this year so if we want him we can get him free.

    Man I love Bam but Donovan Mitchell is out here with game saving steals and shots for the win. **** the jazz.

    The media is trying to push the idea of a LeBron return to Miami. Wade was asked about recruiting LeBron (replied that James makes his own decisions) and ESPN had Smith & Kellerman jaw on the idea today. Kellerman put it that James could get away with a Miami return without getting killed in the media since it would be the only other team he's played for.

    I am unable to envision it happening, but I'm sure I could make the case for Miami to be a possibility. LA has the space, but Miami has the players to make a sign and trade feasible.

    If we could get Demarcus Cousins and CP3 then it could happen. Or he could just go to Houston.
