Stern tells James after the game: "You gotta at least drive to the hoop for us to make calls for you."

Refs tried to get Duncan in foul trouble, there was that one play where Haslem was elbowing him non-stop and he is the one that got the foul. lol8[1].gif

Wade was awful on offense too, he's had those 5-8 feet hook/floaters that doesn't even hit the rim, simply terrible. Lebron must cringe every time he has to pass the ball to Wade these days, he did kind of keep them in the game in the first half but geez, dude is just out of this whole post season.


Also, Heat needs more flops. Stern will reimburse LBj the fees.

Mike Miller can't do it alone.

Miller was wet last night, sadly no one else showed up for the Heat.


Neal & Green was wet last night too, they just couldn't miss. Pop would have exploded if they missed some of those crazy long 3pointers. Greens has been good the whole psot season though so no surprise there.

man, that kid has made me a believer. he has an awesome fundamental game. not a lot of show, but watch how often he ends up around loose balls or grabbing offensive rebounds. and his defense on lebron has been solid (helped out a lot by the slump, no doubt). and tiago splitter, too, unfortunate occurences notwithstanding

"So, as a fan, sometimes to see LeBron not take over, I'm kind of like, 'Come on, let's do it.' His pops went to jail with my older brother. My brother spent 10 years in jail, they were locked up together. I'm a fan of LeBron, so I always want to see him do well and sometimes I'm like, 'Step it up! Start playing.'

Yeah, i understand that Birdman is not really capable to create a play all by himself, the problem is though that Bosh's shot is off, similar to Ginobli's, really. However, Heat has no chance against Spurs if they try to use mostly the perimeter players. Spurs has more good perimeter players and they manage quite well to take the sting out of LBJ. Miller is not fit enough either to last more than 20-25 minutes and Allen is getting too old for the game tempo. Pacers have been shit at perimeter play so there Heat eventually wore them down  by creating space and moving ball around. Against the Spurs they need to attack the paint very aggressively and just drive forward, They are good at allowing only few turnovers and offensive rebounds. The Heat is better at driving to the hoop with bodies while Spurs is better by moving the ball around and creating the opening this way, but of course there is a higher risk of turnover the more you pass around.

LOL ^ I just sent that quote to a friend of mine. LBJ's dad and Metta's bro were locked up together? Weird. Is LBJ's mom still smoking crack and smoking Delonte's dick?

god bless metta. in a time when most athletes seem to have the personalities of senior vice presidents, he is a true original. reposting just because it may be the single greatest sports interview ever:

It's certainly a contender. But I'm also a fan of Denny Green's, "They were exactly who we thought they were . . ." interview, although you really had to watch it after witnessing their morbidly fascinating collapse to appreciate it fully.
