Right and Adrian Peterson didnt get on stage and say "Not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4... " when referring to how many titles he was going to win

Dont forget that moment either. That's another reason a lot of people hate him

Yes I read what you wrote. You made reference to the media frenzy and everything but not the specific "not 1, not 2..." incident.. I didnt know if you remembered that or not

Lebron is a great player and a solid lockdown defender but he does tend to disappear in crucial moments offensively. He just doesn't have the offensive repertoire to take over a game, I'm sorry.

He relies too much on brute strength to get to the basket and mid-range pump-fakes to draw fouls. His post game really hasn't improved much and his catch and shoot jumper along with his pull-up jumper going to his right are average at best. If teams can keep Lebron out of the paint and out of transition, he almost always struggles and just turns into a point-forward who would rather defer to his teammates.

He actually reminds me a lot of Karl Malone. Who, no one would argue, is a great player. However, he constantly disappeared in tight situations down the stretch (where John Stockton would have to bail them out).

Agreed.

Transition is where he is so damn dangerous because of his size and speed

His passing ability is absurd. But he's had that since he entered the league

If LeBron continues to shoot 70%, 45pts/15boards/5 assists they can...

Let's hope and pray.

LeBron has been the only Heat player that's been good. Bosh had a huge game tonight thou, 3-4 from 3-point range for a 7 foot center. And they were pretty 3's too

OK, I think it's safe to say LeBron came up pretty damn big in Game 7, am I right?  Yes, I am.

Who ya'll got, Thunder or Heat in the Finals?

Such a tough call I think, I could see either team winning it to be honest, but somethin tells me Durant is about to go the fuck off and set some records or some shit.  Durant is a fuckin monster when he goes off and he's pretty clutch too.  Dude will break your back.  Either way, I think it's gonna be an EPIC Finals.

As far as i am concerned the Thunder won the NBA title by winning 4 games in a row against the Spurs

I really think the Thunder is gonna win the crown in 6 games or less:crankey:

They definitely have the more complete team. The Heat still lack a reliable PG and Center.

Yeah, that was a hell of a comeback against a great team in the Spurs.  Once they got up 2-0, I thought it was over myself.  The Spurs have great players all around, and a coach that will go down as one of the all time greats, but also (in my humble opinion), as one of the most underrated coaches too.  Definitely a hall of famer though, as well most of the starting 5.  Duncan for sure, Manu Ginobli for sure, Tony Parker more than likely I think.  I thought OKC was done without a question when they got down 2-0.  For them to come back like that really surprised me.  I mean, I knew they were a damn good team, but to win 4 in a row against them, WOW.  Shows a ton of heart.

You don't consider Mario Chalmers reliable?  I'm not saying he's the greatest PG, cuz he's not, but I was just looking at his career stats as well as his 2011-12 Regular Season and Postseason stats, and he's been pretty consistent for the most part.  I mean, he's not lighting it up like Lebron or anything, but he's a very good role player, which is basically what you need when you've got James, Bosh, and Wade.  Everyone else on the team is basically a role player and supporting cast type player and Chalmers has been pretty consistent as far as that goes.

I'll give you the Center thing as far as like technically on the roster. I do think they need a bigger man in the paint, but I usually see Bosh under the basket anyway, so isn't he basically playing Center then, even if he's not listed as one?  So if he's basically playing center even though he isn't listed as one, they're good then I guess.  But as far as on the roster goes, they're only paying one of their four centers over a million dollars a year (3.6).  The other 3, they're paying like 20 bucks a game :rofl:

Mario chalmers is fine on the offensive end. He reminds me a bit of BJ Armstrong. A decent jump shooter who can hit open shots down the stretch and slash to the basket given enough room. Although he does make some pretty wild drives to the basket that result in turnovers, he's been better about it this year.

It's mostly his defense that is the problem. He falls asleep on his man often and makes a lot of questionable gambles off the ball, and his help/recovery defense is pretty bad a lot of the time. JJ Barea and Jason Terry killed him last year in the finals for those reasons, Westbrook and Harden will probably take advantage, too.



As for their "center", Bosh can play center but, like Chalmers, he struggles on the defensive end when playing that position. Offensively, though, he's athletic and can take just about any big man off the dribble and spread the floor when his jumpers are falling.

It's mostly his rebounding and ability to defend in the post that are inconsistent. The Heat really don't have anybody who can anchor their interior defense when Lebron and Wade are gambling in the passing lanes and double-teaming/trapping wing players. That's why they have a hard time against teams who play inside-out and throw a Flex Offense at them every once in a while to spread the floor in the halfcourt (Bulls, Pacers, Celtics, Magic are decent examples).

Why do you think Tyson Chandler was such a big part of Dallas winning last year? He allowed everyone else on Dallas to pressure the hell out of the Heat's wing players without sacrificing their interior help defense. Bosh doesn't provide that same luxury.

Well Thunder managed to pull it to within 1 point.

They always get off to a good start out of the half when they play at home. Will be a good test to see if they can get the lead and play with it.

Let's GO Thunder!!!
