Start Preparing?

  Ok so Miami's big three are all able to opt out of their current contracts after next season. There are rumors all ready swirling saying that LeBron will go back to Cleveland to play along with Kyrie. With Wade getting older, and getting injured more often especially with his knees, is it time for Pat Riley to start planning on what he is going to do if all 3 decide to opt out?

  The main goal is to keep LeBron pass next year. Winning a championship this year can change things. The Heat might want to go one more year with the same group, but is that a risk? Wade will be a year older and as we have seen, his numbers have dipped just a bit. Don't get me wrong, when Wade is healthy he is a great player but this past season he gave those type of games every once in a while. During the playoffs he has been a no show just like Bosh. Bosh is another one who can be very good but can slack off at times. Miami needs to find ways to get bigger, younger, and better. If they don't, they will be having troubles with Chicago and Indiana. 
  I know Pat Riley is loyal to his players especially players like Wade and UD, but it he needs to be proactive not reactive. If Pat decides not to be proactive and start making moves in order to help LeBron James and get younger, there's a chance they can lose him.  I know the idea sounds crazy but it is time to prepare and try to keep the best player in the NBA in Miami. 

  My suggestion is to see how the beginning of next season rides out but try to make moves in order to put Miami in great position for another run.

Overreacting Fans!

   So the Miami Heat lost last night as we all know. Now we drives me insane is the fact that some not all, again let me make it clear. SOME, NOT ALL Heat fans start to over analyze things. The first reaction I have seen is ok Miami is done for it. We have lost the series. Miami is still well in this series. Ok last night they did not look like the same team from game 3. They will regroup and get it together for tomorrow. 

   My answer to all these "crazy over analyzing fans" is to calm down! The series is tied 2-2 and the Miami Heat have the best player in the NBA right now! I do recall last year there was a huge since of urgency when they were down to the exact same team last year without a Chris Bosh. I also recall when the Heat were down to Boston and LeBron won the series for Miami. 

   They are professionals and Coach Spo knows we he needs to do in order to put his team in position to win tomorrows game. Let Miami do their thing and us as fans, lets just sit back, relax and enjoy some playoff basketball. I was born and raised in Miami, I'm a die hard Heat fan. Rooted for them when they won only 15 games. But in any sport, the better team gets it together to come out on top. 

   I am still confident that Miami will get it together and eliminate the Pacers in 6. It's easier said then done but we need to have faith in them.

Miami Marlins

I know I am a bit late on the subject but I am deciding to write about it now. After reading that the Rays have agreed to give Evan Longoria $100 million contract extension, made me think about the Marlins and how they love to dump off their great talent. The Marlins have brought up great players through their farm system and have become top players in the MLB. A perfect example would be Miguel Cabrera and Giancarlo Stanton. Just imagine if the Marlins would have paid Cabrera what he deserves and was still playing for them along with Stanton. The Marlins need to learn how to make their players happy and develop a strong team. If they were to keep most of their top prospects, the Marlins would be a contender every season. Obviously all the spending they did last year did not pay off, but it does help to continue developing strong players.

The Marlins tend to let go of players who have one bad season because they did not want to pay them. Look at Heath Bell, did not play up to management's "expectation", BOOM! Gone! Instead of letting go of all the good talent why not keep them for next year and continue building from there. The owner is just being cheap and pretty much robbed the people of Miami. Hey every team goes through a funk unless you are the Yankees and have all the money. They Rays were not good for a long time and but stuck with their players and continue developing a strong farm system. Now they have a strong core of players that they can build around. That is something the Marlins need to learn. Best of luck to the Marlins trying to fill their stadium and have a loyal fan base.
