Default Re: Heat trade Shawn Marion for Jermaine O'Neal

Even though Moon is undrafted he'll do work. I really like his game and I think he will fit in good in miami. Here in Toronto every player plays bad lol, weve tried firing the coach, trading players and everything but its still bad. haha

Moon will be a fan favorite at first, but he's like an onion. The more you peel it, the more you wanna cry. The only reason he is in the NBA is because of his athleticism. He has poor basketball IQ and is a chucker who settles for the jumper way too often. He did more harm to the Raptors offense than good. But hey no harm loss, maybe he changes his ways in Miami, or you can re-sign him for low salary or just walk away if you don't like what you see. Just don't fall in love with him too fast!

Are you guys getting pissed at Jamario's poor shot selection and reluctancy to drive the lane yet?

Not yet.

The thing is you guys expected him to be your starting SF, & had high expectations for him. We just need him to be another swing man we can throw out there, just like Jones, Cuba, wright, & even Cook.
In other words, anything he gives us is a +.

Nope.

Are you guys over in Toronto getting pissed at Banks' $4M/3yr contract and reluctancy to earn play time?

In all seriousness... Moon has played well so far. We never had high expectations of him, so anything he gives the team is a bonus in the eyes of us Heat fans. The problem in Toronto is you guys wanted him to be the teams best wing scorer & defender all while being an undrafted player making league minimum. He has his limitations... but because the Heat's offensive system doesn't demand a whole lot from him, he's going to look solid, just like Diawara.

I wouldn't be surprised if he gets the start soon over Kouba anyhow.

Yeah Banks was a tough pill to swallow. But it gave us a decent wingman for the season, cap flexibility and 3 million to spend on a draft pick. You always have to make sacrifices to get a deal done.

Jamario is a decent player but I guess we had higher expectations here than we should have. He was just our only option. He is a really nice individual and is a good locker room guy so hopefully he is a good bonus for you.

JO will give you nothing but heart everytime he steps on the floor. I'm going to miss watching him in a Raptors uniform. His contract and knee issues were too much of a gamble and we didn't really need him on the team since we already had a starting C and PF. Hopefully he continues to play well for your team in your hunt for a championship.

Goodluck and best of health for the rest of the season..
