I think he's waiting for waiver wire veterans to see who gets cut and whos worth signing as an insurance policy

The thing is, New Orleans has been on a similar run as the C's have lately.  They beat some really good teams, including San Antonio, and they had an impressive win against Philly the night before beating Boston.

And I don't mean that the C's shouldn't feel bad about losing to them.  What I mean is that a 6 game winning streak does not necessarily mean you are suddenly something you weren't 2 weeks ago. 

The fact of the NBA is that in January, a lot of teams go on mental vacations.  Their focus disappears, and suddenly they are not very hard to beat.  So, when another team decides to come in focussed at this time of year, they can really feast, and look really good.  But, that doesn't mean that they will be good enough in April or May, when those other teams wake back up.

Now, I am not sure what this team really is.  But I think Danny should take last night as a lesson that he shouldn't be blinded by streaks and records.  He needs to try to look at the team for what it is, and what it will be in the playoffs, and then decide what to do about it.  Luckily, I think Danny already knew that, though.

There is no excuse to justify losing a normal easy game against the 14th team from the West. Coming and beating you up is a big disappointment. This team need 2-3 roster changes in order to win championship.

Last year the Heat lost to the:
Warriors
Bucks (twice)
Wizards (twice)


This is the NBA where good team lose to terrible teams.

Mid season pick ups of waived vetrans is not going to turn this team into a contender. Its pretty simple really, we need a big man who can be a post threat, rebound and protect the rim.
We need a star.
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."

And I'd say it's extremely unlikely Ainge gives up either Bradley or Sully in a trade this year -- even for a quality player like Gortat, and especially for a lesser player like Robin Lopez.

GM talk.


"We are happy with our team.  We feel no pressure to have to make a trade."  Translation, we are not going to overpay for your players.

Precisely -- feel like he gives this speech every year after the holidays.
