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.

While the Celtics had Bradley injured, Ray Allen playing on crutches...

Well we beat the heat with Bosh. Also Bosh didn't really pull KG out. KG let a terrible 3 point shooter take 3's and Bosh pulled a horseshoe out of his butt.

But apparently 100 times out of 100a times heat will win haha. Didn't realize it was that simple

Yes, because we can not survive defensively in the playoffs with Bass and Sully on the court together. Need to make a minor trade for a big with length on the bench. (Wilcox is not the answer)

Exactly. I think Bass needs to be packaged with somebody else to bring back a decent big man to play behind KG at center. I like what Collins brings but I'd REALLY prefer an upgrade come playoffs. Also give Bass' minutes at PF to Wilcox and start Sully.

I'd like another big but the team is just starting to look good.  It'd be a shame to trade now.

I really think Birdman was/is the answer.  Seems like he may be signing in Miami though, which is unfortunate.

No, just 4 times in a 7 game series.  No where did I say "the Heat are going to just sweep"


Bosh pulled KG out allowing the game to open up for Lebron and Wade.


Celtics need another big man that can defend the paint.  And it would be nice to have one that can post up on the inside. 



And for all the "Ray was out, Pierce was hurt" 


Wade was also hurt. 


And yes, the Celtics beat them his first game back playing 14 minutes.


For the Celtics to have the best chance to beat the heat in the playoffs and win a title, they need another legitimate big man.

If we do end up making a trade, which I'm guessing will include Bass, his jumpshot needs to be replaced. It's the one thing Sully doesn't bring to the table (yet) that Bass does. Rebounding/Rim Protection is important, but if we make a deal I want that big to be able to knock down a 10 footer consistently.

I've liked our team all along this season, and now that they've started to gel I like them more and more each game.

I'm all for standing pat with our lineup and finding a waiver-wire frontcourt guy.
Michael Jordan: It's a man's game, and you can't play.
 Bill Murray: It's 'cause I'm white, isn't it?
Michael Jordan: No. Larry's white, so what?
Bill Murray: Larry's not white. Larry's clear.

not sure the point of this thread.

cannot be a bum though. needs to at least do TWO things well. not great but well.

1) rebound
2) block shots

a plus would be able to post up and score down low

Honestly i would be more than happy with just defensive positioning and rebound.

Why I want a trade: We're 18-17, two of our top 3 players are likely gone next year, and we have redundancies at the 2 and 4, and big holes at the 1 and 5.

The trade I want is to turn some of those redundancies into strengths and turn our squad into a more balanced team, specifically by acquiring a competent veteran backup point and starting caliber 5.
