08:53 AM ET 11.28 | One Heat player said a problem is there have been too many isolation plays on offense, too much standing around and waiting for others to make plays. Coach Erik Spoelstra has encouraged ball movement, but players haven't done it enough. Miami's locker-room greaseboard, before Friday's game, called it an ``offensive must'' to ``make the game easier for each other.''

what a mess

Damn I would have figured since these are pro they would have figured that out a few weeks ago like we did....Maybe the problem is that the two best players are both one on one players and needs to have the ball in their hands all the time to be effective....Sooner or later one of those guys has to say "ok, ill be #2 and you can be #1!" but that will never happen with the egos down there....

Last year with the Raptors, Bosh stood around and expected the ball to go one on one and then pull up with a 10' jumper. Don't think he knows team offence either.

That just described the Cleveland offense for the last 4 years. To a lesser degree that described the Miami offense the last couple of years also. Give the ball to Lebron in Cleveland or give the ball to DWade in Miami. Now they are both together on the same team and they are having to share and figure out how to get Bosh involved.They need a strong coach to come in and make them listen. That man is upstairs in the Heat's front office already. If he doesn't want this experiment to be a total disaster he is going to have to get involved. He has the personality to dominate Lebron if anyone does.

I just dont see him making the move to come down...I mean he is a little bit older now and I can see him already viewing it will be a failure bc they have no role players, no PG, and no Bigs...All they have is Wade and LBJ....

The problem is there's only ball, and LePunk hogs it. They'd be better off trading Bosh for some bench help.

Ugly Dwayne is not a leader, LeStupid is not a leader and Chrissy-boy is irrelevant.

Makes Miami insignificant.

Can't wait for the fickle fans to dump the Heat....oh, wait, they don't show up much anyway

Wow, that speaks volumes about Lebron.
I guess there is no chance of him being suspended by the Heat.
