Q: You have to like a starting five, at least on paper, of Goran Dragic (assuming he comes back), Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng (assuming he comes back), Hassan Whiteside and Chris Bosh. That's potentially a top-five NBA starting lineup, if the group stays...

Q: The current Heat roster although seemingly more athletic and energetic than the one that jettisoned Shawne Williams, Danny Granger, Justin Hamilton and Norris Cole for the Dragic brothers still struggles with so many injuries. Do we have enough with no...

"Ref you s---! Ref you s---!"
It has become the common, crass and churlish chant at just about every close NBA game, thousands of referees in the stands believing they could do it better.

Q: 1. I think it would be a mistake for the Heat to use the $2.65 million disabled-player exception. I'd rather buy another year of staying away from the repeater tax. 2. After watching Shawne Williams and Danny Granger, I'm starting to come around on...
