HANNAH FELLAlligator Writerhfell@alligator.orgChristina Montana is one of many college graduates who is in debt from her undergraduate degree. Even with a job and scholarships, the 22-year-old UF English alumna has about $34,000 worth of loan debt. Once she started looking at the repayment plans for loans, she started getting nervous about paying them back. However, the Obama administration is expanding the Pay As You Earn plan, which will cap student loan payments at 10 percent of graduates income. The hope is to encourage students to pursue higher education and make it more affordable. The goal is to make this program available by Dec. 31, 2015. cial affairs at UF, said this program will be available to students who graduated after 2007 and will only affect students once they graduate. About 20 million Americans attend college each year, and about 60 percent of college attendees borrow money to cover the costs annually, according to American Student Assistance. UF is already playing a big role to help borrowing and repaying loans, Wilder said. UF graduates average debt is $21,700, which is $9,000 less than the national average, he said.

took out loans for their education, totalling about $260 million worth of loans, he said. UF is actively engaging with student borrowers, not only to be responsible with money, Wilder said, but to encourage students to borrow what they must have to cover education costs. About 37 million people in the U.S. today have outstanding college loans, according to ASA. The Obama administration will collaborate with students and families to make sure they have the best repayment information available. This is a country where opportunity should be available for anybody the idea that no matter who you are, what you look like, where you come from, how you were raised, who you love, if youre willing to work hard, if youre willing to live up to your responsibilities, you can make it here in America, President Obama said in a recent speech. Montana would like to go to graduate school next year to study creative writing, and with this loan repayment plan, graduate school will be more affordable. Even if its only 10 percent, she said, it makes a huge difference. 4, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, JUNE 17, 2014 Julian Pinilla / Alligator Beautifully SmallGainesville Bonsai Societys President Jeff Ketts, 72, and John King, 62, appreciate a Parrots Beak Bonsai at the Millhopper Branch Library on Saturday. LOAN, from page 1Students have 20 years to repay loans THE ASSOCIATED PRESSTALLAHASSEE Under a new law, abortions will be illegal in Florida at any point in a womans pregnancy if her doctor determines that the fetus could survive outside the womb. Gov. Rick Scott signed a bill on Friday that abortion ban. Current law prohibits abortions after 24 weeks of pregnancy unless the mothers life is at risk. The new law will require women to have a doctor determine whether a fetus is viable before having an abortion. It also removes the exception of psychological trouble as an exception. The law takes effect July 1. It keeps an exception if a mothers life is at risk or to prevent irreversible physical impairment of a mothers major bodily function. The measure passed the House 70 to 45 and the Senate 24 to 15. Democrats opposed the legislation throughout the committee process and during the 2014 session. Rep. Michelle Rehwinkel Vasilinda, D-Tallahassee, is worried that doctors could be open to criminal prosecution and said different physicians can have different determinations. It is commonplace for people to get second and third opinions sometimes when theyre dealing with something very important, Rehwinkel Vasilinda said. And we know that physicians do have differences of opinion.Gov Scott signs Florida bill limiting late-term abortionsSTATE HANNAH FELLAlligator Writerhfell@alligator.orgNew research may have revealed the origin of the pathogen that caused the Irish Potato Famine of the 1840s, and a UF researcher was a part of research team. The disease, called late blight, continues to damage $6 billion worth of tomato farmers crops annually. The research reevaluated a 2007 study about the pathogen that pinpointed the source of the disease as South America, said the UF Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences researcher Erica Goss. However, the pathogen actually originated from Mexico, Goss said. The researchers started by gathering isolates, which are individual plant cells, from different potato and tomato plants and culturing those isolates in a lab. By studying the DNA sequence of the isolates, the researchers were able to determine the cause of the disease. By looking at the oldest DNA strands from isolates, scientists can track down the source of the disease more easily because they can see what it looked like originally. ease is that late blight changes in form from year to year, she said. All the scientists can do is hope that if the disease comes, the chemicals will outperform the disease, said Gene McAvoy, Hendry County extension director. A lot of people dont realfood, he said. It takes a lot of people to continue to make that happen.


TUESDAY, JUNE 17, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 5 Sally Ince / AlligatorFood For DaysNatalia Rivera, 19, gets food from Nigel Hamm, owner and operator of Go Go Stuff Yourself, at the food truck rally at Innovation Square on Friday. June 16, 1987 In order to get ahead of a looming problem, Gainesville city commissioners voted on an option to educate students about AIDS. They had the idea to include AIDS informational brochures inside electric bills, which they estimated would reach about 50,000 people. OK, so only 5 percent read it, but that would be 5 percent that would have that information, said Phyllis Meek, UF associate dean of Student Affairs. The county health department said the number of AIDS patients was doubling every year in Alachua County. So what started at 12 affected in 1981 would likely become 176 by 1991. June 20, 2002 A UF student uploaded notes but didnt realize he was downloading trouble as well. When Ian Peterson was desperate for money to go see Jimmy Buffett in concert, he decided to request donations on his website. He had uploaded notes he made for several large classes such as macroeconomics and marketing, which he said other students shaped their own class schedules around. The university said Petersons use of the university Web space is for commercial purposes, which violated student conduct and the terms and conditions of a UF domain. KRISTAN WIGGINS WOODS IS STILL SIDELINED. GRAHAM HACKAlligator Contributing WriterCasual golf fans are more likely to play on Gainesville golf courses when Tiger Woods plays well in a tournament, local golf course workers said. These fans become inspired to go out and play a round, and golf courses like West End Golf Club in Newberry have noticed a difference when Woods isnt swinging for the green. When Woods isnt playing, some courses dont see as much business. Woods has missed the last two major tournaments one of which was the U.S. Open, which took place over the weekend after back surgery and is in danger of missing the remaining two this year. Peter Min, the owner of West End Golf Club, said when Woods plays well in a tournament, the club sees a large increase in sales the following week. Despite the multitude of professional golfers, Woods is the difference. Its strange that its just him, Min said. Everyone likes him or hates him, but everyone tunes in to watch him. Teddy Lausier, a pro shop assistant at Meadowbrook Golf Club, said he only sees a small increase in business when Woods plays well. This is largely because most of the clubs members are avid golfers, not casual fans, he said. However, he said a large amount of golfers come into the lobby to watch the tournament on the clubs television, especially on Sundays, which helps concession sales. Tyler Den, a 17-year-old golfer who plays on the Buchholz High School golf team, said Tiger Woods is his favorite professional golfer. When Woods plays well, he said he gets inspired to go play a round. Although Woods return would liven business, Min said a group of young stars would be more relatable to younger golfers. They would also be good for long-term business. Kids are interested in a guy like very high that much, Min said. Fowler, a 25-year-old golfer, tied for second place in the U.S. Open on Sunday, which was his career best in a major tournament. But until someone like him emerges as golfs next star, Gainesville course workers said they are hoping to see Woods back in action as soon as possible. JESSICA MARSHAlligator Contributing WriterGainesville residents and students can take baby steps into the world of 3-D printing with a new course a local technology company is launching on Thursday. Florida Tech Toybox Inc. and Santa Fe College Continuing Education are offering a new course titled Introduction to 3-D Printing, which will introduce students to the basics of design software and how to create a 3-D piece for printing, said Mark Davidson, president and founder of Florida Tech Toybox Inc. He said one of the goals of the class is to lower the fear barrier some people experience when learning new technology. The class will be held at the Santa Fe Colleges Center for Innovation and Economic Development, located across the street from The Continuum apartments, and the course will cost $175. Registration is currently open, but space is limited to 16 people. The course is four weeks long and meets once a week for two hours. Janalyn Peppel, owner of Powder Coating of Gainesville, who helped organize a series of workshops on Tuesday regarding 3-D printing, said when she discusses 3-D printing with people in the community, they often dont understand the process or the possibilities. Oliver Klicker, a 21-year-old UF alumnus, said he has used 3-D printing in the process board. Its really going to be the future, he said. Its really going to be the future.Oliver KlickerUF alumnus

Rick Scott passed HB 1047, which stipulates that pregnancies may not at any time be terminated in the state of Florida if doctors determine that the fetus could survive outside the womb. The Tampa Bay Times reported that the law takes effect on July 1. And though it maintains that a pregnancy may be ended at any time if a mothers life is at risk or to prevent irreversible physical impairment of a mothers major bodily gression. This editorial board has unique stakes in HB 1047. For one, the board is currently 75 percent female (though this arguably shouldnt make a difference). The second stake is in the fact that the Alligator has held controversial views on abortion before. Now, for a lesson in UF history that must be rehashed every few years: The Independent Florida Alligator wasnt always independent. In 1971, when Stephen C. OConnell was president, and the dent Publications, former editor Ron Sachs approved an insert to run in the paper listing the addresses of known abortion clinics in the area. Because both abortions and printing information about where to get an abortion were illegal at the time, this was a risky move. It ultimately resulted in the Alligator seceding from the university after then-Florida Attorney General Robert Shevin ruled that a split from UF and the Alligator was necessary to protect students First Amendment rights. Weve come a long way from the 1970s, in some respects. Our right to free speech and a free press is safe from government regulation, yet womens bodies, amazingly, still arent. Which is why the Alligator must take a hard stance on HB 1047: Its a violation of health and privacy. Its not the governments place to determine what women do with their bodies, especially when it comes to the lifechanging matter of childbirth. As Dr. Vanessa Cullins, the vice president for external medical affairs at Planned Parenthood Federation of American put it, The decisions about pregnancy are private, personal decisions, and politicians dont belong in the midst of those decisions. Its none of the politicians business. The passage of this intrusive bill, with its room for interpretation and the removal of emotional health as a reason to terminate a pregnancy, is a blow to Florida women. Furthermore, politics have no place in a sensitive area that concerns what Florida Rep. Hazelle Rogers said is between me, my doctor, and my god. Removing access to abortion wont make abortion go away. Furthermore, prohibiting women from undergoing a common and safe medical procedure is invasive and the mark of a regressive culture that does not value a womans right to choose what to do with her body. 79 TOTAL VOTES63% YES 37% NOVote or post a message at www.alligator.orgFridays question: Have you ever used the withdrawal method? Todays question: Are you worried about paying off your student loans? Cantors loss leaves conservatives dividedA house divided cannot stand. If this is true, why should a homeowner, in order to strengthen his or and piers? This is what is currently happening in the Republican Party: The mainstream, big-business oriented wing of the logically pure Tea Party wing. Last weeks primary election in Virginia only made this divide more evident. Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was defeated by a little-known college professor and political newcomer, David Brat. The most frustrating aspect of this election is that there was no need for Cantors defeat. Brat painted the majority leader as a moderate, amnesty-supporting deal maker who is soft on his conservatism. But Brats characterizations are completely baseless: Cantor is a rocksolid conservative. He is strong on guns. He led the House to repeal Obamacare more than 50 times. He is against big government and a proponent of the business community. This begs the question: Why did the people of Virginias solid-red 7th Congressional District think the answer to their political problems was electing a more conservative Republican? Ask yourself this: Who would have more of an impact on the future of the Republican Party? Would it be Cantor, who, prior to his ousting, was in the process of rebranding the conservative movement, or Brat, the evangelical, historywhitewashing economics professor? Hands down, the winner is easily Cantor. What some are calling the reason for Cantors defeat is his position on immigration reform. He did concern himself with the future of the children of illegally immigrated people. In effect, Cantor was discovering that a proportion of people residing in our country are here without proper documentation. They have no reason and probably no hesitancy to leave the country. They broke the law, no doubt, but one must capitulate to the realities of the day. The solution is not Mitt Romneys self-deportation which is laughably unrealistic. Cantors proposal of making sure the children of these immigrants have access to opportunities and the ability to contribute back to their adopted country is both a classically conservative position and completely feasible, provided that the border between Mexico and the U.S. is bolstered. Brat, on the contrary, has no other answer to this immigration problem other than that they He, like other members of the far-right caucus, embodies the stereotypical conservative politician: the Bible-thumpin, Constitution-totin and free-market-supportin man. Upon news of his victory, Brat told Fox News Sean Hannity that God gave us this win, and the Almighty acted through the people on my behalf. Staying true to form, Brat then invoked the infallible Founding Fathers, claimed that America has no free markets and advocated for overall government nihilism. And to keep the cliches rolling, the name of former President Ronald Reagan popped up during the interview. For some reason, the modern Republican Party cannot get enough of quoting and beautifying the 40th president. The part that most upsets me is that the right falls in love with Reagans campaign bravado and completely forgets his governing record. Reagan proved to be more ideomany on the right would like you to believe. Also, if I may, Reagan famously said, My 80-percent friend is not my 20percent enemy. If that is the case, and Republicans being the typical Reagan name-droppers, why are so many reliable, mainstream, solid-red conservatives being primaried so wantonly? This recent development is sad because the center-right political point of view is worthy of consideration. But when this disposition becomes perverted by a select few politicians, it loses its appeal. In the aftermath of Brats victory, the conservative movements future seems to be unfortunately stuck in the past. Michael Beato is a UF economics junior. His columns appear on Tuesdays.

TUESDAY, JUNE 17, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 7 When you tell someone you write about sex, you can expect a few standard responses: What do your parents think? You should write about me. Why sex? The last one is the most interesting to me because its the most important. Thats precisely why I write about sex because its important. Sex is the cornerstone of our society. Its literally how we are made. But if its so important, why is it so hard to talk about? Sure, we talk about sex. Your bros pat you on the back when you tell them you got laid last night. Over drinks, your girlfriends laugh with you about the latest and most ridiculous Cosmopolitan How to please your man in bed article. You ask your partner what his or her kinks and fantasies are. But its never a real discussion. We have more in-depth debates about foreign policy, gun control and religion than we do about sex. News headlines and family dinner conversations cover things like the latest celebrity happenings, sports games and how youve been doBut when was the last time you spoke to your parents (or friends and colleagues, for that matter) about the effect of technology on sex or about getting tested for sexually transmitted infections? Despite the fact that most people will have sex at least once in their lifetime, its still not considered to be an appropriate discussion topic, both in verbal conversations and in printed works. Arielle Pardes, who wrote a sex column for The Daily Pennsylvanian, said in an article about sex journalism For something as almost mundane as sex, theres so much outrage, and people you would want to talk about it. Thats the kicker. Sex is as common as doing the dishes, although the former can be admittedly more frequent than the latter in college, but its still frowned upon to actually talk about it. Of course, there are a few reasons for this. Sex and sexuality are generally viewed as private matters that are only discussed behind closed doors. those private matters public. Sex is different for every person. What I constitute as sex may not apply to someone else. Thus, a column that I write about sex might not be applicable to every person or couple. At the root of it, though, sex is no different than any other controversial issue. I was met with criticism after my last column, pull-out method of contraception. But would the crowd reaction have been any kinder if I wrote about how religion is a hoax or how we should make guns more easily attainable? Probably not. See, the issue here isnt really sex. Its us. Its hard for us to accept an opinion that is different from our own. This can range from a classmates ideas on religion versus evolution to your best friends stance on whether he or she liked Harry Potter. Disagreements are uncomfortable, frustrating and occasionally pointless. But theyre also how we grow and learn. Its important for us to put aside our differences so that we can have productive, meaningful conversations even if its not always the easiest thing to do. Just because you personally do not agree with a concept does not mean that somebody else doesnt. If I write an article about lesbian sex, it doesnt mean that everybody has to have lesbian sex although, can you imagine? It just means that someone out there is having that form of sex, so we should talk about it. In the same article about sex journalism, blogger Lena Chen said that the purpose of a writers platform is to start a conversation. So lets do that. Im not saying you have to start raising your hand in class and asking, Hey, before you go over the mechanics of a sodium potassium pump, can we discuss how I got laid last night? But if you get anything out of this, it should be that its ok to talk about sex. I, for one, would love to hear what you have to say. Robyn Smith is a UF journalism junior. Her columns appear on Tuesdays. Lets talk about all the good things: Sex shouldnt be tabooColumn Robyn When my parto America in the mid-1950s, higher education was an option rather than a necessity. By the time I attended the University of Florida in the early 1990s, times had changed and a college degree was vital to securing a well-paying job. Since then, advanced education and skills have become even more essential in the job market, even though college costs have soared. Those who have a chance to attend college often have to go into debt, as I did for undergrad and law school. While I was eventually able to pay off more than $100,000 in student loan debt, too many learn the hard way that a degree alone is sometimes not enough. It has to be the right degree, at the right price, from the right institution. Otherwise, theyll accrue student loan debt that their chosen careers wont allow them to pay off in a reasonable fashion. Last week, the U.S. Senate debated the issue of student loan debt. Unfortunately, the debate missed an opportunity to examine the fundamental reforms our entire higher education system needs, including new ways to For example, I believe students who attend traditional colleges and universities should have better information about what kinds of jobs and earning potential they can anticipate by graduating in their chosen major. In partnership with a Democrat colleague, Ive introduced legislation that would do this. Of course, this information alone is not enough. Thats why Im working with another Democrat colleague on legislation based on the concept of incomebased repayment, which bases graduates loan payments on how much they earn. In other words, someone who lands a high-paying job would pay a higher percentage of their loan each year than someone who works for minimum wage. Meanwhile, would pay nothing until they gain employment. But we also need to ensure that those who cant attend traditional universities still have a chance to attain advanced learning and skills. Thats why Ive proposed establishing a new, independent accrediting entity geared toward affordable and accessible providers of postsecondary education. While traditional universities will still play a major role in our higher education system, no longer will they be able to block out cheaper, innovative and more accessible competitors. This competition giving working parents a chance to ible education options that are growing in abundance. Although the Senate missed an opportunity last week to advance these kinds of ideas, I know the future of our people relies on rethinking and reforming the way people acquire coming months, Im hopeful well get another chance to actually deliver some results and help more people achieve their American dream by making higher education more accessible without being crushed by student loan debt.

8, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, JUNE 17, 2014 DAMIAN GONZALEZAlligator Contributing WriterThe average college graduate faces high unemployment numbers, but for recent black college alumni, those numbers are worse. A May study from the Center for Economic and Policy Research analyzed labor-market activity in 2013 and found black college alumni faced an unemployment rate of 12.4 percent, more than twice as high as all other races combined. Statistics like these show the prevalence of racial discrimination in the workplace, said Nicholas Carre, a 20-yearold UF political science junior and the treasurer of UFs Black Student Union. Crow we see today where its completely blatant, he said. Equal opportunity in the workplace isnt necessarily one of those things that has completely evolved. According to UF Multicultural and Diversity Affairs, as of 2013, 6.63 percent of the Student Body is black. But universities dont mimic the corporate world, said Luisa Amelia Dempere, chair of the Presidents Council on Diversity at UF. There is a general lack of awareness and a lack of embracing diversity, She said. If certain companies gave more value to that, wed probably see different numbers.Study: Black alumni RESEARCH ALDO ARAUJOAlligator Contributing WriterA recently awarded grant is set to help Alachua county residents stamp out smoking. UF was awarded $1.6 million by the Florida Department of Health to create a tobacco cessation program to battle tobacco-induced cancer and cardiovascular disease. This program is part of a statewide network called OneFlorida developed by the UF Clinical and Translational Science Institute. The network includes UF and Florida State University and is currently expanding to include the University of Miami. The smoking rate is 14 percent in Alachua County and 8 percent at UF, according to Tobacco Free Alachua health policy specialist Andrew Romero. Romero said one of its biggest pushes over the next couple years will be apartment complexes and bars. Downtown has a lot of bars that are voluntarily smoke-free and provide a safe environment for their patrons, Romero said. Our goal is to reach out to bars in Midtown and apartment complexes and let them know that being smoke-free will not affect what a tobacco company may tell them. Clubs and bars downtown such as Tall Pauls Brew House, The Atlantic, 2nd Street Speakeasy and now Stubbies and Steins are all smoke-free businesses. The Swamp Restaurant on Unitown bar to ban smoking inside, he said. This project, funded by the Department of Healths James and Esther King Biomedical Research Program, will help combat the 28,600 annual deaths that come from cigarette use in Florida, according to the press release. Kathy Nichols, co-chair of the UF Tobacco-Free Task Force, said tobacco is the No. 1 preventable cause of death and disease in the nation and the world. We offer individual counseling for students interested in quitting and can provide up to four weeks of nicotine replacement therapy and counseling treatment for free, She said. The grant will fund three researchers per year from either Florida A&M University or Edward Waters College to help minority populations, according to the press release. Claire Baralt, UF Clinical and Translational Science Institute communications director, said the grants purpose is to put the tobacco cessation program in strategies to help their patients stop smoking. The long term goal is put our research to use with a combination of screening, counseling, referrals and resources that can help patients quickly, Baralt said. We need to improve the health of Floridians.

U.S. fans were screaming for revenge Monday after the Black Stars eliminated the Americans from the last two Cups. They got it. At a price. Clint Dempsey scored a shocking goal a half-minute in, but the U.S. couldnt make it stand up. Andre Ayew tied the score in the 82nd minute after a brilliant backheel pass from Asamoah Gyan, who had eliminated the U.S. four years ago. And then, just four minutes later, 21-year-old John Brooks rose to head in Graham Zusis corner kick to ever score for the United States in 30 World Cup games over 84 years. The defender, an unexpected addition to the American roster, and was unable to move even after teammates climbed off the dog pile. He had made his national team debut only last August, and Brooks hadnt scored in four appearances. ing as supporters chanted U-S-A! U-S-A! Now the Americans are in good position in Group G, where Germany opened with a 4-0 rout of Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal. We got the three points that we badly wanted, Klinsmann said. He had predicted this would be The forward was carried off on a stretcher after his left hamstring gave out in the 21st minute when he tried to control a long ball. He awaits tests that will determine whether he can return for this World Cup. Dempsey went down too on a balmy late-autumn night but stayed in the game. The U.S. capsue up his nose to stop the bleeding after John Boyes kick to his face during a battle for a header in the 31st minute, and he was struggling for breath in the second. The Americans showed a lot of heart, a lot of character, Dempsey said. Tim Howard made big save after big save as Ghana outshot the U.S. 21-8. Matt Besler came out at the start of the second half after feeling tightness in his right hamstring. It was his replacement, Brooks, who scored the winning goal. Zusi was also a sub, coming on for the hobbling Alejandro Bedoya in the second half. the U.S. lineup had Brooks in central defense and a virtually invisible 23-year-old Aron Johannsson at forward.

against the San Antonio Spurs, which leaves Miami with a 2-2 record in the Finals over the past four seasons. LeBron James now has the opportunity to leave town to pursue greener pastures after earning two rings in South Beach while Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh attempt to recover from an ugly championship series. Today, alligatorSports editor Jonathan Czupryn and assistant editor Richard Johnson debate what will become of the Heat going into the offseason. Richard: Hello, team X, Pat Riley here. I have an aging superstar thats the weak link in my chain of star players and I would like to receive parts in exchange for him. Would you be willing to talk? Riley has to have that conversation with every other NBA team this summer because he has got to get rid of Dwyane Wade. It will hurt all parties involved. The city that has loved him so dearly will hurt. Wade will hurt because, as any athlete would be, It will also hurt the team. The Heat drafted him and they have ridden him as the face of the franchise, but now its time to dismount if at all possible. I believe you can build around the best player on the planet (LeBron James) and the real unsung hero of the Big Three (Chris Bosh). Head coach Erik Spoelstra has done all that he can do, but Wade is holding this team back if youre looking long term. Theyve paced his minutes and even held him out of games during the season so that And you saw his potential at times throughout the playoffs, but the two wet farts that ended the season loom large for me. If the Heat keep Wade around for sentimental reasons, they risk staying burdened with nearly a $42 million cap hit over the next two years assuming he re-ups this offseason that is giving them diminishing returns at an increasing rate even though hes the teams favorite son. I know this scenario all too well. Im a Lakers fan. Jonathan: Listen, I know emotions are running high for Heat fans after an embarrassment of a series they had against the Spurs, but lets not be rash. Dwyane Wade averaged 19 points per game this season on 54.5 percent shooting. No Im not kidding. The aging 32-yearold superstar recorded a careerhigh shooting clip this year. Im not seeing the decline here. Of course I know Flash had an abysmal championship series, but it wasnt because of his health or because he has mentally checked out of the game. He went head-to-head against one of the best all-around teams we have seen in the NBA in years. Cut the guy a little slack. Its not like he didnt perform in the rest of the postseason either. In the Eastern Conference Finals against the Indiana Pacers, Wade scored nearly 20 points a game while matching his regular season shooting percentage of 54.5. If youre worried about his age creeping up to him, dont be. Everyone is praising Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili for their performances throughout this postseason, and every member of that Big Three is at least 32-years-old. Its possible to play in this league later in age now with todays advances in physical therapy and the fact that defense in the NBA is at an all-time low. If Heat fans should be worried about anyone, it should be LeBron James. Richard: If you want to be worried about the best player on the planet, be my guest. He wasnt the one standing around passive in the corner as the Spurs beat his team like Kevin Durant did. He didnt wilt in the face either, leading the Heat in points, assists and rebounds per game. Hes carrying the team, he will continue to carry the team but he needs more well rounded help. The Big Three experiment won two titles and went to four championship series, but James has Zydrunas Ilgauskas. He can carry a squad with Bosh as his running mate. My concern for Miami is the fact that it struggles with size, get rid of Wade, banking on the assumption that Chris Anderson wont exercise his Early Termination Option and grab free agent Marcin Gortat as a twintowers punch with Bosh on the frontline. In Wades absence in the backcourt, you can bring back Ray Allen hopefully at a discounted rate. And through free agency, plug in either Thabo Sefolosha, whose defense is an upgrade over Wades, or Jodie Meeks, whose outside shooting is better than Wades. In theory, Meeks can stretch defenses to create driving lanes for LeBron and be a nice added perimeter threat to go with Bosh. If Miami could nab both Sefalosha and Meeks, those moves in conjunction with whatever they could get back for Wade in a trade would be much-needed talented depth. Jonathan: Trust me, in no way am I saying for Heat fans to worry about James perIm saying everyone in South Florida should be bartering their souls right now in order to keep him there until he walks away from the game. Do what you need to do with Wade, Allen and the rest, but make sure you lock up James for the long haul. Do I think the Heat can do that? No. And thats what should be scaring Riley, Spoelstra and the rest of the lucky individuRight now, Miami is competing with New York, Los Angeles, Cleveland and every other market with buku bucks to spend. How is every Heat fan not dying of anticipation right now? The dude brought your team four Eastern Conference titles and two straight NBA championships. That just doesnt happen. Any other transactions should take a back seat to LeBron. Once you lock him up for the next 100 years, then start cutting and signing other players willy nilly. Richard: Personally, I think way too much is being made about LeBron being on CBS and the two of us have something to talk about in the dog days of summer. Somebodys sources said LeBron may possibly want to not be elsewhere next season and we now have speculation for months. Hes not going anywhere in my opinion, but if youre worried about him doing so, reloading with a more well rounded and deeper roster is the way to do so. 16, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, JUNE 17, 2014 AP PhotoLeBron James, left, and Dwyane Wade speak to the media after the Miami Heats THE RALLYWhat will happen to the Miami Heats Big Three this summer?
