Ethan, I hope things continue to work out for you. You were my favorite reporter/collumnist in S. Florida. I wish you had a blog where a bunch of us could congregate like Ira's. All the best!
Thanks for writing about the Heats point guards they are both incredibly underrated and completely necessary to this team. I think combined they are one of the best values in basketball.
Did Spo give any reason why Beasley didn't play. I thought that Beasley would be very useful on nights like these when Wade and or LBJ was sitting. Any thoughts?
