An unenviable position

The high-priced, superstar-laden Miami Heat basketball team has started the season with a 9-8 record. Tonight they lost to Dallas, giving them a 4-6 record in their last 10 games.

How much longer does head coach (and Portlander) Erik Spoelstra get to try to make the joy happen? If this thing busts, he's likely to be the first one to go.

This is the best sense of sports schadenfreude I've felt in a long, long time.

Why not? Riley dumped Van Gundy when they won the championship that year.

Professional sports is the ultimate irony. When a team filled with overpriced, super-talented players fails to perform up to expectations, the coach is the first one to get the boot. Go figure.

I am just a casual sports fan.

I do think Canzano has it right (Refer to his 12/03/10 column)Nate isn't the problem. The head office is.

Would anyone here buy something for 20 million bucks and get 25 percent of its use? Then offer another eight million if it might work?

A horse breeder and racer paying obscene millions for a knobby kneed horse, then expecting it win, is unheard of.

"The Vulcans" as Canzano says are the problem.

Kick Nate and MR. Spock will give free "Mind Melds" to Blazer fans.
