    Playoffs>regular season. Also we just traded one of our better rebounding machines in Asik.

    Miami has 55 million in cap space. They can offer Melo and Lebron the max. Anyone who really thinks that wade wouldn't be kicked to the curb should really re-think it.

    Melo to Houston is what I want...but the next best thing would be Melo to Miami with Lebron. Oh the drama that would unfold if Wade opted out of 2/42 million just to get low balled by Riley and his fellow "super friend" lol!

    Lowry, Dragon, Budinger, Jordan Chill, G. Smith, D.Mo, Lin, Jones. McFail didn't develop any of them. And you're crazy if you think he developed Harden and Beverley. Bev was born like that and if anything Harden's overall game has taken a step back. Am I the only one that remembers him locking up Kobe in the playoffs and then guarding LeBron in the finals the same year? He couldn't guard a door with a broom handle right now. The only player that has gotten better in spite of him is Parsons

    Oh, so you think we played 82 games against western conf playoff teams, thus we don't need to improve rebounding to be more equipped for the playoffs? Got it

    Thats the thing, if he truly is all about winning, Houston should be the no brainer choice to win right now. Thats why I feel like theres more factors than just winning with Melo. We will see soon.

    Mchale didn't develop any of them. Harden is the same as when he got here doesn't play defense. Dmo? Hill didn't develop here. Mchale didn't play him enough. Beverly? Same.

    Rgv helps our players more than mchale as well. Mchale is a bad head coach. The talent here covers for Mchales ineptness up to a certain degree. Playoffs come around and the guy is exposed.

    Melo to Miami with Lebron. Wade to Chicago. Bosh to Houston.

    Win, Win, Win?

    Chicago would have the most unreliable back court in the league. Rose and Wade would eat up the cap and never play...I'd love to see it just to see how espn would try to spin it

    Wade was a damn fool to opt out of that contract

    Rule # 1: look out for yourself and family first

    I don't know how this thread got derailed into a conversation about whether or not Kevin McHale can develop talent, but it did. My thoughts?

    Look up what Kevin Garnett and Kevin Love have to say about Kevin McHale (Man, that has got to be a record for most Kevins in one sentence). And then add Chandler Parsons and Terrence Jones to that mix.

    Overall game has stepped back? lol.

    Alright then Pop didn't develop Leonard. He was just like that.

    Dragon got his shine with McHale, Jordan Hill broke out under Mchale, as did Greg Smith, Dmo. and Jones

    Makes some sense. Wade to the Bulls though. Will Wade and Rose play a combined 41 games?
