What’s your New Year’s Resolution for the Heat and why?

Tachauer: It’s simple really: just to get back to playing Miami Heat Basketball. Nothing more needs to be said.

Mora: To desperately have everyone healthy and get back to Heat Basketball. They have too much talent for that record. They all need to come back healthy and ready to get back on track.

Johnson: I’d love to see Chris Bosh reunite with the team in a coaching/administrative position. He’s a Hall of Fame talent, whose experience in reworking his game when he came to Miami in 2010 would be a guiding light for Miami’s young roster. Maybe more achievable, Spoelstra should resolve to play Udonis Haslem at least 19 more times, so he can hold the all-time Heat record for most games played. It’s hard to fathom that an undrafted player could become so integral to a team and its local community, and any records Haslem holds at the end of his career are sure to inspire future Heat players.

Nurse: My New Year’s resolution for the Miami Heat would be for the team to re-evaluate. Win-now has always been the mantra, but if the team continues to be up and down enough to miss the playoffs, Miami needs to gage their ability to make moves to improve now or in the future.

Eyrich: My New Year’s resolution for the Heat is to find that chip on their shoulder. This team has been disrespected, while not being considered a real threat. When they get things going they can be extremely dangerous. But, to get to that point, they have to play like the world is against them. If they can play with a chip on their shoulder, they’re going to be out for blood. That’s where this team is at their best.
