My Opinion: I think its time to bring back Ernest Brown

His height and weight cant really be trusted because nbadraft.net says that he is 7 Feet, 260 lbs, but the NBDL site says that he is 6'11", 190 lbs. ... Which seems impossible if you see any pictures of him. Espn and NBA.com say that he is 7 Feet 244 lbs.

The Heat drafted him in the second round of the 2000 draft as a sophmore and gave him 3 games. Only 3 games... (He was injured for the rest of the season)

The guy was a potential first round/lottery pick in 1999 but decided to screw his career in 2000. Now im no Ernest Brown specialist, in fact I dont know that much at all about him. But a player who was selected to the Junior College All-America 1st Team in 1998-99. Led the Conference in points, rebounds and blocked shots, should be considered again.

Most recently he was selected to the All NBDL Second Team and helped the Mobile Revelers win the NBDL Championship. In 25 mpg, he averaged 10 ppg. 6 rpg, and 1.4 bpg (4th in the league for blocks).

He was on the Pacers and Spurs summer league teams and is a center who is athletic enough to also play Power Forward.



Also, IMO, Ernest Brown is a MUCH better player than Loren Woods. Also, I can see Brown being very good in Miami's offense and defense.

I agree that he is better than Loren Woods

3. Holds the record for being the only player in NBA history to ever average at least 30 points on 69.5 field goal percentage for four consecutive NBA playoff series games (5/23/06-5/29/06). The last record was held by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar with 63%. Wade accomplished it with less than 20 field goal attempts per game
4. Fifth player in NBA history with at least 30 points, 15 assists and 5 rebounds in a playoff game (5/10/05 vs. WAS). The others are Magic Johnson, Jerry West, Walt Frazier and Oscar Robertson.
5. One of four players in NBA history to have at least 30 points and 12 assists in three consecutive games (November 24-27, 2006). The others are Oscar Robertson, Nate Archibald, and Kevin Johnson. [5]

yeah i agree...i've seen him once or twice on the NBDL games on ESPN...he wasnt too bad....not a quality NBA player, but, he might as well be given a shot on our team...


we can bring 20 guys into our preseason camp...we have to get rid of 5 of those when the season starts....he should be given a invite to camp to prove what he's worth
