i don't think you can underestimate just how hard it is to win back-to-back. the mental game alone is killing. imagine sitting for your bar exam two days in a row. (where is Mordecai?)

The real reason Miami is in collapse mode:

Or trying to sit for the bar exam a year after you've already passed it? I'm probably missing another joke here, but (at least in California) the bar exam is actually a three day ordeal.

ok mr. fancy pants lawyer (i didn't even graduate college). smile.gif
so, imagine sitting for the bar exam twice in one week.
unless they extend the exam to last 9 months, like the nba season (not a bad idea!) i think the analogy holds.

Actually, quite a few newly minted law school graduates do CT-NY or NY-NJ (one state's exam, followed by multistate, followed by other state's exam).

I dunno, I don't think MIA is losing this because they're doing something wrong, or they're physically or mentally fatigued. I mean they could be playing better, sure, but in my mind, the Spurs are just clearly the better team. I don't think this is a choke job or anything by the Heat, the Spurs are just better and they're proving it.

True, although I think it's easier to do them back-to-back (because the substantive and mental preparation carry over) than, say, a year apart. (I say that never having done it myself, and shuddering at the thought.)

But I do agree generally with foodguy's point. I I had to take the damn thing every year to keep my ticket, the mental part would get harder and harder . . .

OK, i'll write about something I know. Imagine having to write two blog posts in an hour -- and Facebook and Twitter them too! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

In any case, I don't think its physical. To me Wade didn't look hobbled as much as he looked indifferent.

OKC wouldn't have steamrolled like this. Not a chance.

steven a smith please


heats aren't hungry for a third championship? seriously?

They got too dependent on the notion that they could always count on Chalmers to carry them on his back when the going got rough. When he's not dominating, nobody else knows how to step up.

I don't see the same defensive intensity they showed in the last 2 runs. I can't see how they are less fatigued than last year as Wade missed a ton of games, he supposedly came into the playoffs healthy.

So Sterling is going to hire investigators to dig dirt on the other 29 owners. I applaud this decision and eagerly await the hilarity to ensue.

We have our very own Larry Flynt.
