    Don't think Whiteside does much for us.

    Again Howard isn't likely to go anywhere. For all the people that want him gone, don't get too excited.;)

    But snagging Winslow in the deal would do much for us. Miami said they're in win-now mode and that would require trading Justise. He's gonna have a great career. Give up anyone but Harden for Whiteside+Winslow

    I don't follow the Heat personal issues that much.

    Why is Whiteside a headcase/chemistry issue?

    Give us Justise Winslow if Whiteside is a headcase.

    He gets easily frustrated and hits/shoves opponents. It's to the point that Wade/Bosh don't defend him or try to give him support anymore. It's apparently always been an issue for him.

    If I was the rockets I would actually have to consider that deal if Winslow was part of it. He's going to be an All Star at some point in his career. I highly doubt Miami would include him in any deal though.

    He will. Will be everything we wanted from Dwight minus the touches in the post. And whiteside has some post game also. I just love his toughness physicalness and his potential.

    He has low self control on the court. Tends to get techs/flagrants far too often. Tempers flare.

    I feels you. Sometimes I wonder if "sources" are feeding him information, then having a laugh with an office mate: "Come here, come here, he used it; see? This guy'll print anything...."

    But it could just be true. I'm like a crack fiend with all these bits of info. I should know better. But I'm a little addicted.

    I'm a little less gullible now that I'm well into my 40's, but it doesn't go away.

    :)

    Maybe if you re-route Whiteside for, say, one of Boston's lesser first-rounders this year (its own or Dallas'). They could kick the tires on him and such.

    I don't know if we would keep him. Malakas tends to think he's Lakers-bound anyway, and I could see a team wasting big-time money on him. He has the talent, but he also has maturity and basketball IQ issues.

    Toughness? Whiteside is about as tough as Bynum if what you consider tough being stupid, immature and violent.

    1.) You aren't getting Winslow. Its not happening, put it out of your head. The Hornets passed up 6 picks from Boston to jump ahead of the Heat and nab Winslow. You have to assume, the Heat passed on the offer as well.
    2.) Whiteside is not a younger Dwight Howard. He has some of the same box score numbers, but the Heat actually play better defense when he is OFF the court. Not only that, he is probably a rental. He will be extremely expensive and he is completely unproven.
