Everyone on ESPN is out of their minds! I understand that both are big names that warrant consideration but they wont fit our system. Im not talking about our offensive system, im talking about DEFENSE. What where the 2 words we heard the HEAT players say over and over again? Habits and Identity! Coach Spo has drilled this into the brains of the entire team. What are our habits, to play hard defense and help defend. What is our Identity, speed and athleticism. Nash and Allen are not good defenders and their speed has past them by.
Mark my words! Terrel Harris will be the best free agent we sign for this year. I really liked what i saw from him this year in limited playing time and i cant remember him having 1 Chalmer's play all year "you know, the WTF plays he sometimes makes". I think he plays like Miller with his knack for getting a hand on lose balls, gritty defense and a decent 3pt shooter.
If we signed Nash who's minutes is he taking? Norris Cole and Harris would lose minutes. Why would we want to stunt the growth of two very promising young guys on our roster? Cole has the Talent he just needs experience to get better. He has proved to me that when he plays well Chalmers responds in a big way. Remember Chalmers going for 25 pts! Do you remember how bad he was playing before that? He was horrible, then Spo put in Cole who hit two 3pt shots and scored 8 points in limited playing time. Chalmers came back ready to prove that he was the alpha point guard and did a great job. This happened a couple of times this season. I can see them pushing each other in a positive way.
With our core rotation under contract for the next 2 Years with 1.James 2.Wade 3.Bosh 4.Chalmers 5.Battier 6.Haslem 7.Cole 8.Anthony where are the minutes for aging stars? Do you think there going to be cool with taking the Curry route to a ring? I love our team just the way it is. I trust in Pat Riley and i know he loves finding diamonds in the ruff, aka Joel Anthony, Keith Askins, Bruce Bowen, Rasual Butler, Anthony Carter, Voshon Lenard, Anthony Mason, and Terrel Harris!
