What They're Saying Before the Orlando Magic Face Off Against the Miami Heat

More after the jump.

  • ASK IRA: A case of the terrible twos?
    Ira Winderman of the Sun-Sentinel comments on the possibility that Carlos Boozer or Amar'e Stoudemire could join Dwyane Wade in Miami if he re-signs with the team.

    Q: Ira, among the names that keep coming up when it comes to free agency for the Heat are Amare and Boozer. One of the issues that comes up with Beasley is his defense. Aren’t Amare and Boozer mediocre defenders, as well? It seems like they make defense a big issue for Beasley, but not for these other players the Heat are seeking. — Horacio.

    A: Because the other players are consistent and constant scorers. If Michael got to that level with his scoring and rebounding, I think he, too, would get the benefit of the doubt on the other end.
  • Bucks 94, Heat 71
    Wade, a Magic killer by definition, may not play in tonight's game.

  • Dwyane Wade's free-agency options include hometown Chicago Bulls
    Michael Beasley's progression as a player and value as a teammate could determine where Wade lands in the off-season.

    The prime variable of course is whether the Heat can even land a Bosh or Amare Stoudemire or Carlos Boozer with its cap stash.

    But seemingly just as much in play is how much Beasley is valued as a teammate (and how much Beasley makes himself valued over these final 23 games).
  • Owner Micky Arison confident of Dwyane Wade return
    Miami Heat owner Micky Arison "is 95 percent sure" Wade will stick around with the Heat next year. Of course, there's no guarantee one way or the other.
