    Absolutely no need to move Ian right now. If you need to for money, it can wait until draft night.
    Even then we will need a backup center for next year...

    Plus, if Bynum gets any scoring going... what the hell does Miami do about it? Especially with their bench? Roy looks his best offensively when playing against those guys, and now when he sits, enter Andrew Bynum. How does Miami deal with that for 48 minutes? They can't, can they?
    Well, they can just hope that their 3s fall at a Suns rate.

    Yeah, absolutely no reason to move Mahinmi. 1) We don't know what Bynum we're getting 2) He has balky knees

    Well, no one

    I just meant that the only thing that they can do is to hope that Bosh and their wings are on fire from 3 because I do not see any other way that they could handle it.

    Well, Lebron could have a Jordan-like series, I guess. They still have him. But the point is that if he Bynum gets it going offensively then it's going to be very hard for them.

    So much for trying to get Hibbert in foul trouble by running a tandem of Bosh and Oden at him.

    I agree, Lebron is going to have to go full out Jordan for them to get past us. He "only" averaged 29 against us last year and didn't have a single game of 40. I will GLADLY take our chances again this year with Lebron averaging 29 points. We can definitely overcome that. I think that for the Heat to beat us, Lebron is going to need to average in the mid 30's with a couple of 40 point games. He's going to have to go full Jordan on us.

    They're also going to need Ray Allen to step up big time and I'm not sure he can consistently do that in a series at his age. They also need Bosh to play big and hit some threes, as you mention.

    Most importantly, D Wade just might not be able to give them anything near what they need.

    I'm not trying to sound too cocky, but this is our year to get by them. We without question have the talent to do it. It's just going to come down to mental execution. I just think that the deck is stacked against any team that is trying to make four straight Finals appearances, which hasn't been done since Boston in the 80's. It's just an absurdly thing to do and I think that the Heat will be on fumes by the time we hit the ECF's. We'll see.

    There isn't a whole lot that I can say that hasn't already been said here but I'm a fan of this signing.

    Low risk - high reward for a somewhat high risk player whose shenanigans will be tempered by:
    A) A locker room and culture created by Bird and Vogel and fully bought into by every guy on this team from PG to Solo.
    and
    B) Bynum's desire to be on a contending team and go for a third ring.

    I wonder too if, after Philly and Cleveland, Bynum isn't more sensitive to his public perception/portrayal by the media. If his agent is worth a damn, he's made that a priority. Meshing with a team that like the Pacers, who are perceived to be a model of team-first culture, could go a long way in repairing his image.

    I don't think LBJ has a "Jordan-Like" series in him. He isn't MJ. Period. And I hate that stupid mediots make him out like he is. He's a good player, great player, but damnit he IS NOT MJ.

    Yeah he does. He went full MJ on Boston in Game 6 of the 2012 ECF's. Put up 45 points. It mind sound cliche', but that's what it was.

    When Bird said that he was going "All In" this season.....he wasn't kidding.

    I just have a bad feeling that this will be a "one and done" type roster that Bird has built. Unless Copeland is moved in the next 2.5 weeks without losing any of the current core of Players......I REALLY think that there will be a drastic move that will need to be made ( or not made ) that would alter this roster enough where we may not end up being as deep as are now.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Yeah, I agree. I have said this again in the past and I will say this one more time. When I first joined this forum in the lock-out season I had a discussion with another forum member about Bird's plan. To me it seemed obvious that his plan was the following:

    Lock-out season: Get HCA, go to 2nd round and fight hard.

    12-13: Make a run at the #2 seed, go to ECF and fight hard.

    13-14: Make a run at the #1 seed, go to the Finals.

    He was always talking about steady and continuous improvement and this was simply the path that made the most sense.

    Did I believe that we could beat Miami last season? Certainly. Anything can happen in a game 7. Everyone of us believed. But our chances are much better now. Danny is back. Our bench is stronger. Our players are more experienced. Miami is will be on fumes just like you said. Making four straight Finals appearances is really hard.

    If you approach the last 2 series against Miami from a neutral standpoint then you'll see that what happened was pretty much expected. In 11-12 we were just a young team on the rise. Miami was way more experienced and a favorite. We fought our best but it wasn't a surprise that we didn't advance. In 12-13 we were clearly improved. Our defensive identity had solidified and PG was emerging as a new star. However, we were incomplete. Danny was injured and our bench couldn't score enough. Miami had a better bench and experience was on their side again. They were also the reigning champions so they were focused in order to repeat.

    Our odds are much better this season. Our defensive identity is even better. PG is even better. Lance is way better. Danny is back. Our bench is better. Simply put, our odds are better. This should be our year.

    Edit: That said, they still have LeBron. They will still be considered the favorites. All I'm saying is that I like our chances more this season.

    I'm honestly pretty damn shocked by this signing. As long as he doesn't mess up our chemistry it's a win, I guess. But I'm not a fan of the guy on a personal level.
