    I love Charles as well but he is always looking for ways to keep himself relevant. This seems like a nice way to do that. Charles understands that the younger NBA audience doesn't know/remember him as a player, so he needs to keep his name out there as much as possible.

    Price did have knee surgery this summer. He may not be fully healthy by the time the season starts. Stephenson should get minutes at both the 1 and the 2, he is extremely talented and looked great this summer.

    Re: The Lebron saga

    Top 10 signs that the Heat are being overhyped

    ...

    10) The best regular season team in history really should do better than Carlos Arroyo and Mario Chalmers at the point

    9) It's hard to see how Erik Spoelstra will keep them motivated, playing defense, or sacrificing numbers

    8) When your best shot blockers are your small forward and shooting guard, you might not do too well against teams with talented bigs

    7) In two of the last four years, Dwayne Wade played 51 games, and in general, guys do not get less injury-prone as they get older

    6) One suspects that LeBron James might be just a little bit bored of having the best regular-season record

    5) In the last four years, Chris Bosh missed 45 games

    4) One suspects that their opponents will be just a wee bit up for their games

    3) The best regular season team in history really should do better than Joel Anthony, Jamaal Magloire and Dexter Pittman at center

    Uh, what about "Z"?

    2) As good as Mike Miller might be, and as many open looks as he's going to get, it's not as if he's ever been on a team that's won a damn thing

    1) Even if they are all that and a bag of chips, they'll still coast for the last 2-3 months, since the winning playoff teams now all take off for the last 2-3 months

    - Arroyo/Chalmers > Fisher/Farmar. The Lakers managed.

    9) It's hard to see how Erik Spoelstra will keep them motivated, playing defense, or sacrificing numbers

    - Spoelstra is actually a GREAT defensive coach.

    8) When your best shot blockers are your small forward and shooting guard, you might not do too well against teams with talented bigs

    - Haslem and Anthony both play solid D.

    7) In two of the last four years, Dwayne Wade played 51 games, and in general, guys do not get less injury-prone as they get older

    - Wade won't have as much pressure on him to make things happen on the court.

    6) One suspects that LeBron James might be just a little bit bored of having the best regular-season record

    - ?

    5) In the last four years, Chris Bosh missed 45 games

    - lol.

    4) One suspects that their opponents will be just a wee bit up for their games

    - Probably. But this happens to just about every playoff team.

    3) The best regular season team in history really should do better than Joel Anthony, Jamaal Magloire and Dexter Pittman at center

    - +Z. When you have superstars at the other positions, you don't need all stars at the other positions. See Kendrick Perkins.

    2) As good as Mike Miller might be, and as many open looks as he's going to get, it's not as if he's ever been on a team that's won a damn thing

    - But has he ever been a 6th man / 4th option?

    1) Even if they are all that and a bag of chips, they'll still coast for the last 2-3 months, since the winning playoff teams now all take off for the last 2-3 months

    - Good point.

    Re: The Lebron saga

    That list is a bit of a stretch, IMO. The Bulls had Luc Longley and James Edwards at center. Just for starters.

    Re: The Lebron saga

    The 72 wins thing is entirely based on motivation. If LeBron/Wade want to take out their years of frustration against the league for 82 games, they can do it. I dont see that happening in today's NBA, but I could be wrong.

    The thing I'm most excited about is that this is the first "historically good" NBA team since the Shaq/Kobe Lakers. The Celtics/Spurs/Lakers (Kobe/Gasol) have been very good teams, but not all-timers. But, the Heat have a chance to be just that. Every Heat game will be an event, which is cool.

    Put me in the camp that thinks the Heat are going to breeze through the NBA over the next few years. I don't think 72 wins is out of the question at all.

    They may not be done.

    Pacers management has told Danny Granger to expect another trade before the regular season, and he assumes they will try to acquire a big man.

    "If we see a deal we like, we're going to make it and we're not going to wait," said Pacers president Larry Bird, after they traded for Darren Collison last Wednesday. For what it's worth, Granger seems eager to get some frontcourt help -- "I can play (power forward) but I'm not a true (power forward). So we're definitely going to have to add another big, and I think that will be our main focus."

    Re: The Lebron saga

    Hopefully we don't over pay to fill a need. It's not like we have a chance at winning a championship anyway. I think I'd be OK with allowing Hansborough some time to develop. If he's healthy that is. We could always sign Al Horford, Carl Landry, etc. in the off season.

    I think I would prefer we pick up a stop gap big for now and see how that goes. Then look to acquire a big via draft or FA.... instead of trading for someone with a huge contract or sending away draft picks.
