That’s where the Heat may have lost the best player in the league. All the Cavs need is 25 productive minutes a game from a player like Marion, and Blatt’s crew will be in a fine shape. Take Marion, for example. He’s 36 years old and his production continues to decline, but he’s remained a double-digit scorer in every single one of his 15 NBA seasons. He was a image source surprisingly competent shooter who hit 35.8 percent of his three-point attempts last season, and he will, as always, be an above-average rebounder and versatile defender. The Heat would have loved a chance at signing a player of Marion’s caliber over the past few seasons, but instead Pat Riley made risky use of minimum contracts to pay Michael Beasley and Greg Oden .
That is a total of 75 starts and the unit appears strong across the board. Freshman center Michael Deiter is expected to play this season. Reserve guards Ray Ball and Trent Denlinger have been solid in camp. The most significant question remains whether Walker Williams is ready to step in at left tackle if Marz suffers an injury. Wide receivers: This unit is deeper and could be more explosive than most observers anticipated.

We anticipate Brandon practicing this week, anticipate Mo being back relatively quickly. And then we get a good look at those young corners. The other part of it is we have to evaluate from a scheme standpoint what we want to do based on who we have. Garrett basically ripped the defense after a 27-7 loss to the Chargers in the preseason opener, even though most of the starters were missing. He was much more pleased after Saturdays 37-30 loss to the Ravens. The Cowboys forced punts two of the first three times Joe Flacco had the ball, and the only touchdown drive led by the Baltimore starter was kept alive by a roughing-the-passer penalty that Dallas thought was questionable enough to send to the league for review.
