    ^hahah the heat are only a -2 favorite right now.

    still this kind of proves my point about sportsbooks not caring about who's the better team. thats a line where its just goading bettors into making bets from both sides.

    the spurs are a -10.5 favorite right now and its looking like a great value bet on the clippers because you win either way if the game is close.

    Not interested in a $10 bet. I earn that in like 4 minutes at work. Would be fun to make a bet but RX is getting all technical on me.

    Kobe is old too. 3 years younger than Duncan, but more basketball miles. He needs Shaq. Shaq would wipe the floor with Andrew Bynum.

    the Heat's flaws are completely exposed against Indiana. every 4/5 player they have besides Bosh is completely useless. i don't know what's happened to Haslem but he has become a complete waste of space. formerly a gritty, hard working emotional core of the team...now - absolutely nothing.

    they spent all their remaining cap space and effort to get Battier and Miller, who were supposed to be perfect fits - killer 3 point shooters and perimeter defenders who upon their arrival in Miami, did neither.

    i do have renewed appreciation for Bosh now that he is out. and i appreciate Chalmers for not going down without a fight, but where the fuck are the rest of you? you fucking deserve to go out in the 2nd round playing like this

    Waiting for someone to come in here and post that they're a lifelong pacer fan.

    Paul george and Roy hibbert helped me a lot in my fantasy leagues. I pinned hawks, pacers, sixers down as underrated teams earlier this season in this thread. Glad see to two of them do this well. I feel like the hawks celtics series were really really close as well. if al horford made that finishing free throw itd be all three in the semifinals and at least one of them in the finals

    Kinda want sixers to win the series. They haven't been this good and lucky in like ten years. But I feel like celtics have a better chance against heat or pacers.

    Ok, tonights game isn't close. Spurs just flat out dominates the Clips' terrible defense tonight. They can't defend a pick, can't defend at the paint or lock in a defensive rebound. Still so many wide open 3s. :mad:


    Need stops. Come on!

    Anyone lip read what Wade and Spoelstra said to each other yet?

    edit: a few reports have him saying "get the fuck out of my face" but he said a lot more than that.

    After that incident they panned the camera on Spoelstra and he looked totally emasculated. That team has never respected him. Problem is he gets out-coached and the players know it.

    Wade needs to shut the fuck up. he was a flat out embarrassment last night. it wasn't just Spoelstra that was yelling at him to get his head out of his ass, his teammates had words with him too. he gave up on his team and everyone noticed.

    frankly, the dude is THE sports god in Miami (like Kobe is to LA) - and we all expect far more from someone like that
