    LeBron was alright in the 4th. But you always expect more than alright from him.

    But Miami lost because their D couldn't stop my mother in the 4th and Wade was awful for most of the game.

    Lebron and Wade carrying the team again, it's become a 2 on 5 once again. Well to be fair Durant and Westbrook is the only two on offense for OKC but they just can't guard them and at least OKC is defensing the Heat well. Fisher was pushing Haslem out of position for a rebound several times, the Heats center being pushed by the oldest man (and a PG at that) on the court, that is the real problem with Heats size. Ibaka & Perkins wasn't even utilized much in the 4th.

    I don't think you'll see Perk much at all in the 4th this series. Miami doesn't play through the post and Collison's way better against the pick-and-roll.

    Open about what? How can I be a fan of any kind if I dont support a team? If it was OKC and Boston, I would have watched and enjoyed the games, would not have pulled for either team. Same if it was Indiana or SA. Lackers, not so much until Kobe is gone.

    Garnett, dont care. Love him.

    Sefalosha was brilliant in the 2nd half. Triggered everything.



    Actually, 2 guys that dont deserve it. Still funny.



    Gotta agree. That unit that started the 4th was superb, minus Fisher (actually played ok). With Harden, fuck ya, thats the 5 right there. Collison was excellent.

    OKC ran Miami over in the 3rd. Just couldnt handle them. When that team decides to turn it on, look out. Miami looked beat 4 mins into the 3rd. Durant, 17 pts in the 4th. Thats how you do it, Lebron.

    Wow. That was a championship performance. Looked easy at one point, reminded me of how easy it looked when SA was running riot.

    :D

    ^ Garnett is someone you'd love to have on your team. he'd be perfect on the lakers spurs heat pacers clippers thunder ect ect. any contender really.

    when he was doing all the same things in Minnesota it was no big deal.

    OKC just has a 6th gear. both offensively and defensively.

    I actually used to like garnett when he was on minnesota but he turned into a piece of shit when he went to boston, that town just does that to people for some reason.

    Interesting stat from ESPN this morning:

    Durant's 17 points in the 4th last night was more points than Lebrow had in the 4th from all 6 games combined in the finals last year v Dallas.

    thats the thing though... they are pampered nba players.... you can't have it all... with nba players being professional MMA fighters/Boxers too.

    remember carmelo running like a bitch when 5'8" nate robinson started chasing his ass? once carmelo saw nate's crazy/calm fighter eyes (usually displayed from a guy who actually knows how to fight) bullies usually will back down.

    99% of the nba is fake tough guys. plus its just too expensive to actually go through with a fight (artest lost like $6,000,000 in salary alone because of one). money is the true buffer... so when its about to go down the money angels that sits on BOTH the right and left shoulders of nba players remind them to stand down.

    lebron needs to manage his game where he's rested in the 4th quarter. he shoots his wad too quick. highlight dunks/turnaround jumpers in the first 3Qtrs isn't going to cut it when durant is dropping 17 easy points in the 4th.
