  • Chris, we need you standing up and not on the floor. You are a much better player than a flopper; so, block shots, hit baskets, and play. STAY OFF THE FLOOR!

    We are not dumping on or bailing out on the HEAT PLAYERS. These are the same basketball players who won the GOLD MEDALS for TEAM USA in the OLYMPICS. It was not Duncan, Parker, or Ginobli - they played for their own countries.

    GO HEAT; WIN THIS 7th GAME FOR TEAM USA!
