When Bron Bron made the lay up, the Miami bench didnt seem as excited as I would imagine they'd been,

Nice try by Pacecars, but starting 5 all played more than 40 minutes. They will be as dusted as Bulls by Game 3.

Could someone help me out? I know white people are supposed to hate LeBron, but I'm a little out of the loop and I didn't get the memo. Could someone remind me why?

Painful. Just....painful.
Thanks. Woodson should have called for more layup-down-the-lane plays for the Knicks. If he had more time with his starters together, probably would have been able to design one.

I'm a little confused, can someone explain to me why people ride LeBaozo's dick so hard like they got stock in him when he doesn't give a fuck about them?

Has any sports player in history given any fucks about their anonymous fans on the Internet? Might as well ask "Why are people sports fans?"

He's the best player in the league, on the best team in the league, of course he's going to have fans.

Reader comments on espn.com are awash with conspiracy theories (generally revolving around the refs "making" Vogel take Hibbert out because the outcome of the game had already been decreed by Vince McMahon's evil twin, David Stern).

i was puzzled by the hibbert thing too. only thing i could figure was vogel had him out because he thought they needed to match up better on jump shooters and that bosh would probably post up outside the 3-point line anyway. but you'd think when the exact same thing happened at the end of reg, he'd have learned. amazing. hate the heat, but i predict a sweep now. or maybe 5 games. foo.gif

Vogel did the exact same thing against the Knicks as well, no idea why. And the Knicks kept scoring, it made no sense. If I want the Heat to beat me, I'd let Bosh shoot that 3 than any shot inside the 3 point line. It still makes no sense especially when your only reasoning is he doesn't match up well with Bosh, there was 2.2 second left. He needed to be in there for defense, plain and simple.

That's the explanation in the actual article (as opposed to the nutjob fan comments) on espn.com: he was concerned that bosh could be positioned away from the basket, allowing him to get open for a jumper and/or pulling hibbert away from the basket.

Still, knowing far less about basketball than vogel, and having nothing on the line and the benefit of complete hindsight, I would have to say that with the game on the line, I'd rather take the risk Bosh beats me with a 15-20 jumper than the risk that LBJ beats me driving to the rim and no shot blocker in the game . . .

uh, yeah. 100%. i was just guessing what could possibly have been going through his mind, not recommending it.

Vogel was able to get away with this against the Knicks, because the Knicks don't have a layup-down-the-lane play. They used to, but it got bumped from the book for one of the Chuck-a-Three or Melo-Iso set variants.

lebron's play reminded me of what dirk did to the heat in 2011:

Vogul made his defensive decision. It wasn't necessarily a wrong decision - just an unfavorable outcome. Its like in poker when you play a hand correctly (where the odds are on your side), but still lose.

I hate the heat, but lebron just makes very smart basketball decisions 95% of the time on the court these days. he would've passed for a high percentage shot if he were immediately doubled, or he would've done what he did to win the game - a lot of star players would've done the HEROBALL move and settle for a fallaway jumper regardless. He's just so fast, big, and strong that what he did looked easy. In a sense it was easy (using the left hand) because it was the most elegant/simple/high bball IQ move to do.
