Let's do this with some class.

    Thank you Mister Wiggins for your one year at KU. You dazzled us.

  • That suit!

    Told ya…

  • @JayHawkFanToo Yeah, they moved up two spots. By trading 2 second round picks. That’s hardly moving up to grab prospects. And clearly not what you meant when you pondered the possibility. This was your query about what the Heat’s situation following LeBron opting out:

    “Will the Heat stay together minus LeBron and use the available money and move up to get one or two of the top prospects?”

    That’s not what happened at all. They moved up grab a guy to help entice LeBron to stay. They didn’t use money saved by bidding him farewell to land a lottery talent. They got a guy who was likely going to fall to them anyway, but because the story broke about how they wanted him, Charlotte used that to squeeze some worthless 2nd rounders from them. Big deal.

    I did say I didn’t think Miami would make a trade, so I was incorrect in that assumption. Just don’t think the trade was what that big a deal.

  • @icthawkfan316 I thought what @JayHawkFanToo was referring to was that he " told ya " about the suit. I think he (or someone) mentioned that in another thread.

  • @nuleafjhawk @JayHawkFanToo Guess I missed that.

  • @icthawkfan316

    Nuleafhawk is right, I was referring to Wiggins suit/tux that I mentioned earlier on a different thread…

    I agree, the trade was not a big deal and I am not sure Nappier is as bib an improvement over Mario as many are claiming. Mario’s biggest asset is his defense and he could also play and complement all the superstars; we will have to wait and see if Nappier can do the same. The move does indicate that the Heat is willing to cater to its superstars by getting the player LeBron apparently wanted. In the end, LeBron will go to whatever team he feels gives him the best chance to chase and beat Jordan’s legacy.

    The Heat also offered Norris Cole to several teams but had no takers. I just don’t see the Heat resigning Mario at $4M, so he will either have to take a cut in pay or go to a different team. It could work out OK for Mario since it would give him the opportunity to shine on his own without the big three hogging the spotlight.
