We look fantastic right now, but to win a title this year we need another big man who can play defense, rebound, and be enough of a threat on offense to keep defenses honest. We need a trade, but not a major trade. We should be able to get a player like Dalembert for Courtney Lee for example. We don't need to trade Sullinger and or Bradley for a top level big man.

If a trade involving bass/sully lee/bradley for gortat is the one your thinking about then no. I dont see gortat being the guy that puts us over the edge.

The last 3 games im thinking keep this team together and then develop melo.. let him play the full year in maine then with another training camp under his belt and a little bit more bulk i think he can be nba ready. Fab is 2-3 go to moves in the post to become a solid big man.

We have to trade Rondo in exchange of one big man

we are not winning a title if we trade Rondo. Also, we are not likely to get a franchise cornerstone big man worth trading Rondo for ( like a Dwight Howard)

Not neccesarly

we need a big body via agent or trade
without messing that much with the lineup


imho that body will be desisive to match against Miami as pointed here.
specially if Bosh bring it on during playoffs

maybe its me, but I feel like the Heat have regressed this year, at least defensively(part of that is they play small/ Miller, Ray are sieves)...the Knicks KILLED them the two times they played.

I really don't see any team as "unbeatable" in the East...but thats just me.

trust me. if we had wade, Lebron and bosh with Allen, Miller and Battier plenty here would think it would be a cakewalk for us.

Yes if its there, no if its not. A trade that includes any combo of Terry/Bass/Melo and picks that can return a 20-25mpg center that can produce almost 10rpg. This however isnt likely unless Danny pulls of magic considering Bass and Terrys contracts.


Lets call Yao Ming, his foot has got to be some what better right? Id take a 1 footed Yao over Collins any day.  ;)
Ray Allen 2004 on Kobe Bryant: "in about a year or two he will be calling out to Jerry Buss that we need some help in here, or trade me."

A serviceable Center will do .  We have 2 slots open, and i think this is reserved for the a backup PF (Kenyon Marin im looking at you) a Center (i dont know who is available yet - waiting for the waiver wires).

A trade is not necessary. Lets just ride out this season and enjoy KG and Pierce's walk off to the sunset.

One big, hopefully a center, and a SF... that's the need.

The team has a serious flaw in terms of interior defense and rebounding.  If there's a good big man out there, it could help transform our team.

No NBA team is going to beat a healthy Heat team in 7 games playing small.
We can predict the future now?!? lol

No.  We saw what the Heat could do last year when healthy.  No Bosh, Celtics were a threat.  With Bosh, KG gets pulled from the lane, Celtics no longer a threat.
