Sigh. It's over. And now, the Heat roster implodes. I'm having visions of the Heat website centerpiecing Josh McRoberts, Danny Granger and Norris Cole.
; King James no longer will reign in Miami.

Danny Sanchez's +1's are the things they like, agree with, or want to recommend.
Beware! I took broken window screens there to be replaced, and they completely lost my order, the measurements and of course, tossed the screens. I also went to get replacement jalousie glass, and they were out of stock. Two weeks later, well after they said they would have new glass, they only had the glass in their other location 30 minutes away. One of the most common types of window glass found in Hollywood. So, I was left for weeks with hurricane shutters closed on my broken window. The owner never even had the guts to call to apologize. This place is completely disorganized, which you can see for yourself from the disaster that they call a showroom. Stay far away. There are plenty of other window shops in Hollywood that have their acts together.
