We couldn't even remotely be considered threats with the roster we had.
That's because their three is better than any of our three.
The sooner you guys admit that, you'd feel much better about it.
miami brought in guys who were considered done and untouchable as well...regardless of age.
Shard was done...but in Miami he shoots 40% from three.
Ray Allen looked old in Boston...now his shooting is above 40% from three as well.
no one wanted to touch Birdman...miami does and he contributes.
These are not youngsters they added.
but their core makes it easier for their role players to perform well.
Ours do not.
