that's probably not the worst loss for the heat, riley usually shortens up to an 8 man rotation in the playoffs and payton would have been 9th or 10th on the teams rotation

Now thats its out, tell us which nba player you had the liberty of talking with.

Where you out getting Dorrel Wright's autograph? :


GP tearing his calf is going to be a big blow to a heat team already weak at guard with Wade still recovering and JWill's track-record of breaking down towards the end of the season. Who's going to get an opportunity to crack Riley's short rotation?

LO @ u thinking that GP will get benched in the playoffs!!!

U can't actually believe that. Gary is pretty important. He had some huge moments in the playoffs last year and that veteran playoff leadership will be very much missed if he misses any games. Jason Williams is fine, but depending on who they play against, Gary will get some big minutes. There is a big difference between Gary Payton and Chris Quinn...Chris who??? umm. EXACTLY

As a huge GP fan, this is sad news.

Also, do you guys think that GP has played his last NBA game? I mean the Heat may not even be in the playoffs by in 3 weeks, will GP be back next year?

This is sad news. Hopefully he will be alrite by the playoffs. I don't think Miami can win without him. But if he returns, Miami will be my pick again for playoffs
