This is kinda cool. Would be fitting to see him go home.

http://www.espn.com.au/nba/story/_/id/16840869/chicago-bulls-eyeing-dwyane-wade-seek-jose-calderon-trade

ya i'm happy for him, and sad (for him and for the heat) at the same time. At this point in his career, he should have been a Heat lifer.. they should have paid that man his moniez.

heat dropped the ball.

going to be exciting to see him in Chicago.. i'll definitely be watching.

And they (the Heat) brag about how they're a classy organization that "take care of their own".

btw Thon Maker is ballin` in summer league.

http://espn.go.com/blog/nba/post/_/id/22007/bucks-rookie-thon-maker-sets-a-high-standard-at-summer-league

I watched his game the other day and he has huge upside if he can stay injury free.

Have been watching Ben Simmons closely too and his passing is just beautiful. For a 6'10/240 guy it's ridiculous.

Also, can shoot of either hand. He's going to be a handful

I could never understand why tall people are expected to be "bad passers". What does height have to do with an inability to pass? I just don't get it. If anything, it should be an advantage. The only thing that is negative is that big men are usually in finishing positions, so they aren't in a position to pass all that often. That's all. I can't think of anything else.

I'm late to teh party but disappointed KD left OKC cause there is no team to compete with that beast team anymore. Guess i have to get used to watching a team torch opponents all the way to the championship just to say i saw the best team ever play?

just overall coordination i think.. big people are usually just slower/more brute-like. less finesse/quickness. I mean just look at heavyweight boxing as an example. The difference between them and welterweights, in terms of quickness, hand speed, endurance, movement, energy is ridiculous.

but that's mostly at the high school/college level. in the nba, the vast majority of these big guys are uber coordinated.

I would understand lack of coordination for dribbling, maybe shooting. But passing? There's nobody that's stopping you from having great court vision, especially with the added height. There's nothing stopping you from being aware of the teammates' positions on the floor. There's no limitation in throwing a pass to the right guy.

Passing is more of an awareness thing than anything else. Height should have no implication in that.

Most big guys especially at the amateur level look very uncoordinated. Maybe they just have slower reaction times when it comes to passing or they just chose not to pass the ball very often.  It's hard to think of many big guys that are great passers and who rack up assists.
