    Rumors are swirling about Spoolestra being on the outs with Lebron. Not good down in SoBe.

    That whole Lebron bumping into Spoelstra is way overblown. Its comical that the media would make that a symbol of the Heat's frustration. If the Heat keep losing and fall below .500 before the end of the year, Riley will take over no question.

    i doubt that. riley will only step down if he feels they can win a championship, like he did when SVG was coah. and with the lack of chemistry, bad record and all the injuries, it doesn't look good for them this year. of course there's still a chance, but it's looking unlikely. riley put this whole team together and everyone thought they'd go 73-9..now that it's not panning out, at the end of this season he will be looking for someone to blame (spoelstra).

    Everything about the Heat this year is overblown, unfortunately.

    In other heat related news, we now have the same record as the Knicks!! Woohoo [​IMG]

    I dont understand with these rumours about Riley coming to coach again. He isn't a magician that is going to cure the glaring problems: lack of size, point guard, etc..etc. He's going to have the same problems. I just love how Lebron is almost creating the same type of pattern that T.O was infamously known for. So much talent . It's never his fault is it.. becoming a very polarizing figure I must say

    Its because of Riley's reputation of winning championships and the fact that he took the reigns from Stan Van Gundy when Shaq and the Heat weren't playing so well. Many speculated that he literally took the job from Van Gundy because he wanted to get back to coaching. Riley has more influence than you think.

    Been out for a couple of days, I hope everyone had a good thanksgiving. This whole Miami situation is stupid and it is all because of Lebron. The whole story is made up:

    Even Wade is being infected by Lebron:

    Can't wait for playoff time.

    Kobe took every other shot in the game. Maybe he was tired.
