    And he did it without having to sweeten the pot with draft picks. And in the worst case that Whiteside doesn't work out here - he traded expiring deal for expiring deal - no long term risk!

    The more I look at it, the more impressed I am.:cheers:

    The championship this season went through Toronto...could have been an issue with Kanter not leaving the country.....Whiteside is Ed Davis on steroids...what he needs is leadership and we have that with Dame...Dame will convert him just like he did Nurk….Nurk changed when he got here, I expect Hassan to do the same...it's the culture HERE that affects these guys we bring in...not the culture where they came from

    My bigger concern with Mo was his knee. The time he had to take off during really important times in the season tells me he's not long for this league. Not because of his skills, but because his joint can't take the wear and tear.

    So Dame is a great leader, but Dwade and Spoelstra are pretty good too...

    When Miami was good, Whiteside was motivated. I think he’s the kinda guy that needs a winning culture and good leadership.

    It just dawned on me.

    No more Meyers.

    No more Turner.

    No more Aminu.

    No more Moe.

    Every annoying player is gone.
