Boston needs to find a way to beat the Hawks... they are really the only team in the east who can even matchup against the Heat

    #621479 - 05/05/12 12:54 AM (6 years, 8 months ago)

A little update to pad my post count :smirk:

Lakers up 2-0 but about to lose Game 3 on the road to the Nugs
Celtics beat Hawks in OT to go up 2-1 in the series, playing back in Boston for Game 4
76er's beat Bulls again as they go up 2-1 with Game 4 in Philly
Pacers play Magic on Saturday in Game 4 as they lead 2-1. Game 4 in Orlando
Grizzlies and Clippers are playing catchup and are tied 1-1 with Game 3 in LA
Thunder go to Dallas to play their Game 4, they lead 3-0 over the defender champ Mavs
Spurs and Jazz will play Game 3 in Utah, Spurs lead that series 2-0

The extra rest will definitely help San Antonio

Predictions for Saturday; I see Magic winning even though Indiana wins the series, Clippers beat Memphis as they play their first playoff home game in quite some time, I think Dallas gets their head out of their ass' and they find a way to win their Game 4 and go to 3-1 and still lose the series to OKC, and for the last game I think the Spurs benefit from an extra day off and win to go up 3-0

Nah the NBA knew what they were doing when they gave Ron Ron a 7 game suspension. He'd be back for Game 2. He's able to guard anyone except durant. and no1 can guard durant

i like the talent the lakers have in the paint

Lakers/Thunder is probably going to be the most interesting match-up in this year's playoffs.



I was also rooting for a Heat/Bulls rematch...

Spurs wont lose 1 game against the Clips
fuck its another 14 point lead in the 4th quarter
I think the clips wont win one game with Parker/Duncan combo and Gnuob coming off the bench
fuck they have a 27 point lead right now:smilingpuppy:

I really dont think okla can handle the Spurs and no fucking way anyone from the east has a chance in hell :hi5:

Duncan is healthy this year. If him and Manu stay that way the Spurs have a legit chance.

However, I'm about 83.76% sure that OKC will win it this year. They have athleticism, youth, talent and a deep playoff run from last year on their side.

I would go about 70% OKC, Spurs have a lot of experience and one of the best coaches to ever coach the game....

I gave Spurs 30% chance, I just think OKC is too damn athletic, hungry, and have too many guys who can drop 20+ on you

I dont think it's going to be easy, but I think the outcome will be OKC playing in the NBA finals

Durant is the best player in the NBA imo. He is wayy more clutch than anyone else, just put the ball in his hands and he is money it seems.

James Harden is a fucking stud too

i gotta say, i agree with you about durant.  dude is just clutch as clutch can be.  him and westbrook could go down as one of the best 1-2 punches in history imo if westbrook keeps his head on his shoulders.  they just go great together.

Not only is he clutch, he is also very likable. His personalty is the complete opposite of most stars. He seems quiet and humble despite being the NBA's leading scorer back-to-back years. Him and Derrick Rose, 2 of my favorite players

Heat are playing harder I think. Indiana needs to step it up these final 6 minutes of this 3rd quarter. They need to be within 2 or have a lead going into the 4th

Tie game again.

This shit is over. Indiana is playing like shit. They cant handle the pressure.

Ive seen them throw the ball away soo many times now on bad passes

Heat up 10 at the end of 3.

Fuckin Heat.

Now it's looking like it's going to be Boston or possibly even Philly we are all rooting for. I really hope Boston wins, a Heat vs. Philly series would be a fucking joke.

Fun Fact; Boston has 3 of the top 30, all-time scoring leaders on their team. 3 of 30 ALL-time. Crazy.

what's wrong with me?  forgettin about the spurs?  totally slipped my mind.  don't sleep on san antonio for real, as you're obviously not :rofl:  spurs are a good team for sure though.  spurs, heat, and thunder are all very good teams and boston isn't too far behind either.

if i just had to pick two teams though, i'd have to say thunder/ heat though, but wouldn't be surprised at all to be wrong either, ya know?

It really is a coin toss.  The thing is, I'm not really even into basketball that much during the regular season, just went it gets really late into the playoffs and the finals too of course.  I remember watching some of Jordan's huge playoff performances back in the day.  Shit was epic.  Ever since then, I've really just been into playoffs/finals basketball and not really the regular season.  Shit's boring til late in the playoffs to me :shrug:

Spurs up 1-0 baby!

I like both teams out West, I think OKC has the better chance at beating Miami though

Naah it was a close game but the Spurs played smart when it counted
Thunder was dominant in the first half

I gotcha.  I definitely don't think it will be a sweep or dominant series win by the Spurs.  Still gonna go with the Thunder I think, but like I said before, wouldn't be surprised AT ALL if the Spurs beat them.  I really think Greg Popovich is a lot better coach than he gets credit for.  I mean up there with like Phil Jackson.  Not saying he's quite as good as Jackson (it's like splitting hairs though to me), but he's definitely in the conversation I think.

Then again, you root for just about every team except my Cowboys. Fucker.

With a two-armed Rondo this year the Celtics have a much higher chance. Plus, Bass has been solid. I like him better than Glen Davis.

Yeah Bass is a much better all-around player than Big Baby is.

Rondo still needs to become a better shooter but damn can the kid play ball

Rondo is their biggest advantage. The heat suck at the PG position defensively and if they have to stick Wade on him it will work to their advantage.

Boston definitely has the ability to have nice matchups. LeBron on Pierce, Bosh (when he comes back) on KG, then you got Wade to play Rondo/ Ray Allen

Both these conference finals are going to be awesome series. One of the better ones in the past decade. All 4 teams remaining are legit championship caliber teams

All 4 teams left really are championship caliber teams.  You're right about that.  On paper I can see Boston winning, yes, but when you really think about it, just that feeling in the gut when you ask yourself who's gonna win with TEAM X VS. TEAM X, the gut feeling tells me Miami is gonna win.  Maybe it's cuz they're younger, I dunno.  Wouldn't hate it though if Boston went on one more run to a title.  If they're gonna do it, they need to do it now, that's for sure.  That team doesn't have too many years left.  I think Doc Rivers is a fuckin awesome coach too btw.

Spurs been making everyone their bitch. I only caught part of the game and havent seen the box score but San Antonio is going to be tough for anyone to beat.

I still think OKC matches up better against the Heat though

Miami isnt winning a title though. Actually they probably will. They are playing much better in this series without Chris Bosh than they play with him. Bosh is soft

2-1 Spurs, we'll see.  I'm startin to think more highly of the Spurs.  I really wasn't too big on them at first because of their age, but then again, ESPN has been talking all season about how Duncan is playing younger and how the whole team is playing younger really, so it's really not that much of a surprise when I think about it.  Don't sleep on San Antonio, they've got experience over OKC too.  I like Durant and OKC though, and age could still catch up to the Spurs too.  We'll see.  Could go down to a game 7, wouldn't surprise me. 

There really is 4 championship caliber teams left.  It's so hard to pick.  I mean I really could see any one of the four teams left winning the title for real.

Will be interesting to see how they play in Game 5, back in Miami. I think Miami will continue to win their home games only and win the series in 7.

I think they end up meeting OKC after OKC went into SA and beat them tonight

The Heat are choking it up again. Wade can't even bail them out.
And Garnett has been a beast in this whole series. If Bosh/Haslem can't slow him down it's over.

LeBron has been a choke artist as usual. He had a chance to win that game for them on a pretty wide open 3 pointer.. Instead he bricked it, then he allowed Paul Pierce to walk him down and spray one right in his face. That was the game right there.

Everybody calls him a choke artist.  It's bullshit.  I'll admit he wasn't the greatest in the playoffs last year, but you act like 3 pointers are like guaranteed shots, even if he is open.  It's not like just pressing a button and boom, the shot is made, especially in a situation like that with so much pressure.  If the whole entire team had played better, he wouldn't have been in the position to HAVE to hit the 3 to win it, but of course, he misses the shot and it's automatically his fault.  Horseshit.  Dude is one of the greatest players to ever play in the NBA man, everybody just hates on him/the whole team cuz they built that shit up so much before the season last year.

Now, I will admit that he and the whole organization of the Heat should've handled it better when they signed him and Bosh last year.  The whole hour long tv special and them doing the thing in the arena last year and having him, Wade, and Bosh talking to the crowd n shit before the preseason even began was complete and total horseshit, don't get me wrong.  But the only reason everyone is hating on them is because they built it up so much.  They're still a pretty damn good team to have only been together for 2 years dude.  To be honest, I think Pat Riley should be coaching them, NOT Eric Spolstra.  They would be unstoppable dude if they had Riley.  They've only been together for 2 years, just need to tweek a couple things I think.  That dude has so much pressure on him though, it's ridiculous.  If the Heat lose a game, it's Lebron's fault, even if he scored 40 and had 15 assists and 12 rebounds.  He misses one shot with 2 mins to go in the 4th, doesn't matter what he did, the loss is on him.  Surprised the dude hasn't committed suicide yet the way everybody has built him up and then tried to just destroy him.  It's ridiculous.

When you are "the best player," then yes, a wide open 3 pointer should be just about automatic. This isnt the first time he has missed an important shot or important free throws. I watch just about every single game so I am not speaking out of my ass..

The guy constantly puts up big numbers and makes big plays, but when it comes down to a clutch moment he crumbles and loses his star power.

Just compare him to Kevin Durant and then ask yourself, who is the better? who is more clutch? who would you rather have the ball with? Durant. Durant. Durant.

And people hate the Heat because of the bullshit stunt James pulled on ESPN when all indications pointed to him returning to Cleveland, he got on national television and embarrassed and betrayed his city and franchise that drafted him #1 overall. A franchise takes a big risk when they give you max contracts and uses the #1 pick on you, he rewarded them with 7 years of great play.. and if he would have left like any other normal FA player, then there wouldnt be the hate but it was the way he left.

    #626361 - 06/07/12 12:48 AM (6 years, 7 months ago)

So you're saying he should make 100% of open 3 pointers?  Is that what you're saying, seriously?  I know it's not the first time he's missed a big shot, but think about how many big shots he HAS made in his career.  People seem to forget about that.  And I didn't necessarily say you were talking out of your ass, but dude has like EVERYONE in the basketball media looking at him through a magnifying glass and when he misses a shot, it's like he sucks.  Yeah, he's missed some, but that team needs to get better as a whole entity so all the pressure isn't on Lebron.  If they were a better team, he wouldn't always be in the position to have to win it for them. 

If I had to pick between him and Durant I don't know what I'd do.  I fuckin absolutely love Durant, and he's younger too which is a plus.  I just think Lebron's got an edge as far as defense, but I love Durant, no doubt.  It would almost be a coinflip if I had to pick.  OKC definitely has more chemistry I think than Miami does.  Kinda goes to show that you can't necessarily just put 3 great players together and have guaranteed championships.

^Isn't that like exactly what I said before? :rofl:  It wasn't that he left, it's how he left.  He basically CARRIED that team though for real dude.  He had some decent players with him, but definitely needed a better supporting cast.  And when did indications point to him going back to Cleveland?  There were reports for like DAYS before that ESPN TV special that he was going to Miami.  Yes, he did embarrass the shit out of Cleveland by doing the whole hour long TV special, but from what I remember, indications were always that he was leaving the Cavs, just not sure to where and that basically the Cavs were just grabbing at straws and hoping so bad he would stay, which was like a 1% chance he would.  You're a Cavs fan, aren't you?  If I remember correctly, I think you said that before back in the day when I used to be up here all the time. 

Bottom line I think is that if the Heat were better as a whole, there would be less insane, life under a magnifying glass type pressure on him and he would play better, which he's already an insanely good player to begin with, but he would be even better imo.  I also think that young coach of there's needs to go.  Pat Riley could turn that team into a dynasty.  They'll get rid of Spolstra before they break that team up, I guarantee it.  I don't think he has the team's respect to be honest.  A team like that needs a better coach dude, somebody that knows how to get them to play together.  They just look confused at times to me.  But then again, they've only been together for 2 years now, people forget that.  I mean how many teams win a title in their first year together dude?  Or even their second year together?  And this year wasn't even a full year.  They will win championships though, no doubt in my mind.

Cleveland had talented big men in Big Z (hall of famer) and Shaq (hall of famer) when they made deep playoff runs.

They also had lots of role players like Anderson Varejo, Mo Williams, Delante West, Anthony Parker, Daniel Gibson, Sasha Pavolic, Drew Gooden. All not stars by any means but all of those players except for Varejo, Parker, and Gibson (who stayed in Cleveland) moved on to play for other playoff teams this season. Gooden with Bulls, Sasha and Delonte with Boston, and Mo Williams with Clippers.

We wont stop analyzing LeBron until he wins a title. He's been in the league 9 years now and no rings. That prevents you from being "the best player," and that's the whole point. No one will argue he isnt great, the argument is that he isnt the greatest to ever play the game.

The pressure will be off LeBron as soon as he wins a title. Period.

I agree, he did have DECENT players in Cleveland with him.  If they had one big name with him (besides Shaq who was a shell of himself at the time), and the supporting cast you just named, they might've won the time they went to the Finals.

And just for the record, I never said he was the greatest to ever play the game.

And you're right, the pressure will be off of him when he wins a title, but to me, that's unfair as hell dude.  The only reason that pressure is on him like that though, is because of how they handled him leaving the Cavs.  (The ESPN special, the whole big show with fireworks in the arena with him and Wade and Bosh, insane media coverage, etc. etc.)

The thing is though, and I think this won't be argued TOO MUCH anyway, is that Adrian Peterson is pretty much the best back in the NFL, he hasn't won a ring and he has nowhere near the pressure on him as Lebron.  The only difference is because he didn't go to another team and have it built up like James did.  Lebron kind of put it on himself in a way, but I still think it's unfair.

That whole "I'm gonna take my talents to South Beach" TV special WAS complete and total horseshit though dude :rofl:  It was almost awkward to watch I thought anyway.  Like I just knew that that shit was NOT gonna go over good for his public image and all.  He's kind of backed himself into a corner really, and I agree, the pressure won't be off of him until he gets a ring and the only reason is because of HOW he left Cleveland, not just that he left.  However unfair it is, it is a fact :shrug:

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

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

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:

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!!!

Everybody hates on Lebron just because of how the free agency thing got built up last year.  Nobody hates on Wade when he only scored 19 tonight, why's that?  I personally think that Wade isn't sucking, he's just taking a step back because the team plays better when him and Lebron both aren't trying to score a shitload of points, but still, noone says anything about him if he doesn't score 30. I don't get how ya'll are talkin shit about Lebron now, the dude scored 30 fuckin points, had 4 steals, and I'm not sure about his other stats, but damn, what's he gotta do, score every point for his team? Lebron is one of the best players in the league.  The Heat will get some rings, it's only their 2nd year together, damn.  Everybody built him up for all those years in Cleveland, and soon as they didn't win that first year together, started tearing him down.  If they had won a ring last year, everyone would love him.  It's fuckin ridiculous. If Pat Riley coached them though, they would own the NBA.  I still ain't sure about that Spoelstra dude.

Gonna be an epic series, but if OKC gets out to a 2-0 lead in the series, it might be over.

I hate LeBron because I am born and raised in Ohio. I am allowed to hate someone who I played against in high school, who later burned our hometown franchise to try and go win rings with a superstar cast.

I hate him because not only does he have no loyalty, he also doesnt keep his word, and he's an egomaniac. (said he wouldnt leave cleveland until he won a title)

"Not 4, not 5, not 6, not 7"..... when you start doing that shit before you step on the court, or before you have even won a ring then you are going to get people hating on you.

No one is saying he isnt a great player. People are saying he's a choke artist when it counts. And so far, that has held true throughout his career. This is his 9th year in the league and he hasnt won a title. That detracts from his overall greatness. And I dont want to hear shit about the teams Cleveland had, Cleveland repeatedly brought in FA help that LeBron wanted. We got to the NBA Finals once, Eastern conference finals 2-3 times, and made the playoffs every year except his rookie season.

Wade already has a ring so there is no pressure on him. Plus he isnt all in the media's face the way LeBron is. With his "16" mouthpiece and everything.

Pshaw. This was the first finals game where Lebron scored more than 25 points. That's nothing to be too proud of. I'm not hating on the guy and honestly couldn't care which team wins, really. Everything I've said comes from the games I've watched and, even since before the FA crap with Miami, Lebron has had nothing but average to bad games (and 4th quarters) in the finals.

Wade played like crap, too. He's been getting worse and worse every year in the playoffs. My guess is that age and injuries are catching up with him. He hasn't developed a good-enough outside game to compensate against teams like OKC who can really pack the paint with their length and, because of that, he's been struggling. Also, Sefolosha is no joke. He played Wade and Lebron fearlessly and, pretty much, rallied the Thunder's defense/transition game in the second half.

Bosh was defensively inept at protecting the interior and rebounded like crap, as usual.

And Mario Chalmers didn't disappoint either. He did exactly what I said he would. He constantly fell asleep on his man in transition and, on top of that, got beat off the dribble by just about everybody except Fisher.


It's not just Lebron, but as their leader you'd think he'd be trying to lead by example and pick up his game in the 4th quarter rather than just putting up good numbers for the first 3 and then chucking up a couple lackadaisical turn around jumpshots when the other team is building momentum. Watch him at the end of a game, seriously, it's like he thinks his clout will just put the ball in the basket whenever he throws it up there.

You played against Lebron in High School?  I find that hard to believe seeing as how you're just now saying something about that.

No loyalty?  You say that when someone throws hundreds of millions of dollars in your face.  Is it his fault Cleveland couldn't afford to pay him?  They could've given him A LOT more help in the 7 or so years he was there and maybe they could've won a title, but they didn't have the money to do it.  Yeah, they gave him some help, but not all the pieces he needed, not even close.  That whole organization has been fucked for decades, one player is supposed to change that?

Yes, the "Not 4, not 5, not 6" shit will get people hating on you, I'll give you that.

Choke artist when it counts?  He basically carried Cleveland on his back all those years to even GET to the playoffs.  Again, he could've had more help.  Dude had a couple bad quarters last year in the Finals and he's a choke artist.  If he would've had those same exact stats and they had won, people wouldn't be saying that.

Detracts from his overall greatness that he hasn't won a ring yet?  That's just a media/social stigma that has no overall affect on how good of a player he is.  Even if he never wins a ring, when it's all said and done, his stats will put him up there with the best to ever step on a court.

And the media is more in his face than he is in there's to be honest.  Who built the FA thing up last year?  The Media.  If it hadn't gotten built up by the media like that, there would've been no TV special and fireworks in the arena and "Not 4, not 5, not 6" speeches.  The media built all that shit up, not him.  You think he wants cameras in his face 24/7?  Come on bro.

And 16 mouthpiece???  Wtf are you talking about?

Pshaw. This was the first finals game where Lebron scored more than 25 points. That's nothing to be too proud of. I'm not hating on the guy and honestly couldn't care which team wins, really. Everything I've said comes from the games I've watched and, even since before the FA crap with Miami, Lebron has had nothing but average to bad games (and 4th quarters) in the finals.

Wade played like crap, too. He's been getting worse and worse every year in the playoffs. My guess is that age and injuries are catching up with him. He hasn't developed a good-enough outside game to compensate against teams like OKC who can really pack the paint with their length and, because of that, he's been struggling. Also, Sefolosha is no joke. He played Wade and Lebron fearlessly and, pretty much, rallied the Thunder's defense/transition game in the second half.

Also, just as I pointed out, Bosh was defensively inept at protecting the interior and rebounded like crap.

And Mario Chalmers didn't disappoint either. He did exactly what I said he would. He constantly fell asleep on his man in transition and, on top of that, got beat off the dribble by just about everybody except Fisher.


It's not just Lebron, but as their leader you'd think he'd be trying to lead by example and pick up his game in the 4th quarter rather than just putting up good numbers for the first 3 and then chucking up a couple lackadaisical turn around jumpshots when the other team is building momentum. Watch him at the end of a game, seriously, it's like he thinks his clout will just put the ball in the basket whenever he throws it up there.




Dwayne Wade isn't playing like crap.  In order for that team to work better than it did last year, they can't have all 3 of them trying to score all the time.  Someone has to take a step back, and it just so happens to be Wade.  He still does other things to help his team.  I know that sounds crazy, that you can help your team without scoring 40 points, but it's true.  He opens up shots for other players by drawing double teams all kinds of other shit.

It amazes me, dude can score 30, but if he misses 2 shots in the 4th quarter, he's a choke artist.  I don't agree with some of the ways the FA was handled last year, don't get me wrong, but it's amazing how the media and fans have built Lebron up just to tear him down.  THat's the way society works though.

It's not that he missed 2 shots in the 4th quarter in this game, those were just some of the many examples I could have given to make my point: which is that he has been repeatedly having poor 4th quarters and games in the finals while other players like Tony Parker, Dirk Nowitzki and, tonight, Kevin Durant, all outplay him (especially as time winds down).


Also, at least read the box score before you're going to defend Wade's horrid shooting night. He wasn't deferring to his teammates for the good of the team, he shot 7 for 19 from the field and committed some pretty costly turnovers.

Haha, and why are you even defending him after you say:

I call him out and then you pretend like he had a bad night on purpose? You must be a Miami homer.

You played against Lebron in High School?  I find that hard to believe seeing as how you're just now saying something about that.




Yep. I went to Columbus St. Charles, he went to Akron St. Vincent/ St. Mary's. I played against him in both basketball and football... Ive mentioned it several times on Shroomery. I dont really consider it a big deal. It was high school and I was a bench player in both sports.

No loyalty?  You say that when someone throws hundreds of millions of dollars in your face.  Is it his fault Cleveland couldn't afford to pay him?  They could've given him A LOT more help in the 7 or so years he was there and maybe they could've won a title, but they didn't have the money to do it.  Yeah, they gave him some help, but not all the pieces he needed, not even close.  That whole organization has been fucked for decades, one player is supposed to change that?




Cleveland actually offered him MORE money than Miami. And Cleveland spent over the salary cap and into the luxury tax several seasons in order to get LeBron quality players around him. Players that were playing in the playoffs this year.

Have you been watching the games? He has a mouthguard that has the roman numerals "XVI" meaning 16 for the 16 games he's going to win to get a title. He shows it off just about every single play

i guess people love to hate each other for the most stupid reasons,but i guess its the world we live in it teaches us early to hate others.....the guy made millions for kids on the "decision"


everything that people said they were going to do at 18 did they do????? if not by most peoples standards there lairs right????.... WRONG...the guy made a personal decision, how come when teams cut a player its just business but if the player leaves its ohhh that mother fucker is disloyal lmfao it must be the double standard huh?????

the funny thing about stubborn people is once they convince their selfs they dont like someone its really hard to change their minds i mean to criticize someone in something like basketball games is one thing but to hate the guy for what..did he talk down to you,rape and kill your family no but people act as if the man did something to them to harm them.yea the man left a team you might of loved but get over it. im not a heat fan or a lebron fan i can care less who wins because it has nothing to do with me.dont let other people control your emotions its not good.........whit that being said enjoy the series haters

You really should have just not posted.

That was the most retarded hippie bullshit I have ever heard. Take it back to TSL

I am rooting for OKC and if that makes me a "hater," of Miami, then so be it. I really like OKC, and love the way they play the game of basketball. I feel positive energy when I see how their team plays. The team chemistry, ect.

He didnt make his promie at the age of 18 either. He made it with 2 years left on his contract

It's cool. I dont expect someone who admitted they dont even care about the sport, to know jack shit about what they are saying. Sounds like you just wanted to jump in and make a little comment and call people haters. You should stick to posting in other forums.

I don't think many people really "hate" Lebron as much as they just don't respect him as a professional athlete because of his attitude.

I'm not one of those people, though. I just think he's a choke artist and have since before he even went to Miami.

Yep. He is an amazing athlete but his professionalism sucks.  His love affair with the media and the media's affair with him, is sickening.

And like you said, he always records great numbers, but anyone who actually watches the sport knows that when it comes down to the biggest of all games and the biggest moments, he folds. Once he wins an NBA championship, then I will respect him more. But until he actually wins something, he will always be a choke artist in my books.

Wade won a title with Shaq, but LeBron cant win one with Wade + Bosh. As the great Jimmy from Southpark would say "I mean, come... on"

Although, to be fair, Shaq was a monster. Him and Wade were nearly unstoppable in the P&R. If he would've stayed in shape he probably would've been, without a doubt, the most dominant player of this era.

I think he still is considered one of the most dominant players of his era.. Check his stats and his rings. He is man among men.

Mota- Of course it angers me when someone who admits they dont even care about the game, comes into a thread about NBA championship and starts calling people haters.. I hope one day you dont wake up.

I am a sheep because I follow the game more closely than anyone else on these forums, and dont respect the opinion of people who dont follow my sport? Why would I validate someone's opinion when they admit they dont care about the game?

Not much to talk about right now.  No game tonight and everyone has pretty much spoken their opinions on Lebron, however assanine they might or might not be :shrug:  Doesn't look like any of those opinions are gonna change so I'm not really gonna argue about it anymore, well, not right now anyway.

Ready for the game tomorrow night though.  Is it in OKC or Miami?  I'm thinkin OKC.  Don't they have home court advantage?  2-3-2?

Exactly. Back in OKC again. Then to Miami for 3 games.

OKC really needs to win tomorrow too for me to feel comfortable with their shots at a title.

Miami is still a very talented team and if LeBron + Wade combine for 60 points or more, I think Heat win.

Yeah, tomorrow night is a VERY pivotal game in the series.  If OKC wins again that's gonna be huge, but if Miami evens it up, it's anyone's game imo.

The stat was something like 72% of the teams that win Game 1 usually end up winning the series altogether.  That was Sportscenter though, you know how they got a stat for every fucking thing.  Interesting nonetheless though.

I forget when they changed the series to being 2-3-2 though. That will be huge. If Miami wins tomorrow, they have a chance to not even have to play another road game. Could win all 3 at home (dont see it happening) and win it all.

I would much rather see it be 2-2-1-1-1

I hope this series goes to 7 games. I'd rather it be fucking epic than be a shitty 4-0 exit for Miami or 5 game sweep the other way. It sucks when Lebron sucks. I'd rather he score 46 points and have a triple double in their first home game and give the Thunder something to think about so that they can come back with a vengeance.

2-2-1-1-1 is stupid dude.  Way too much traveling.  It ain't cheap operating those team planes either bro.  Games would prolly be shitty anyway from them being so tired from traveling.  Getting to the hotels at like 4am n shit.  2-3-2 is two flights, and three flights for the team that DOESN'T have home court advantage.  2-2-1-1-1 is fuckin four flights and five flights for the team that doesn't have home court.  That's ridiculous dude :facepalm:

And say the Finals was between the Knicks and Lakers for example.  Fly 3,000 miles for one game, then 3,000 back, and then 3,000 more back AGAIN.  That makes no sense whatsoever dude.

Labron fouled the living fuck outta Durant with 11 secs left tonight, that should have sent Durant to the free throw line :crankey:

The official fucked up that call


I am watching the espn replay, OKC was asleep in the first quarter and that bad call fucked them at the end:crankey:

That was definitely a missed call, but shit happens. I think they win Game 3

They need to get off to better than starting 1-11 from the floor and trailing 18-2... They have gotten off to bad starts both games, that has got to change

Kevin Durant still outplaying LeBron, imo. Even though LeBron was uncharacteristically clutch late in that game

Labron looks like he is gonna finially step up to the plate and be the MVP, I doubt he can repeat last nights performance.

Durant shows up ready to play at 100% every night
OKC bust barely lost that game even when they came out flat in the first quarter.

Westbrook needs to quit throwing up prayer 3 point shots and concentrate on setting up plays.

Hopefully OKC will win 2 games in Miami

I WANNA SEE LABRON TEARS:smilingpuppy:

OKC keeps playing shitty in the first quarter, but outplaying the Heat by the end. This isn't really a good trend for either team but at least all the games have been close.

Not looking too good right now

OKC needs to win tonight. I dont think they can beat Miami 3 times in a row, even if 2 of them would be back in OKC.

Let's GO Thunder. Harden needs at least 12 points. Durant and Westbrook need to combine for 50+ and Ibaka needs a double double

Fuckin A, Miami is just too damn good and OKC is too young and inexperienced. They arent up to the big moment

Durant and Westbrook played well but the rest of the Thunder played pretty poorly

Yeah, Harden's been sucking during these finals so far. They're gonna need him to bring his A game the next time around or they're done for.

I think Harden is just thinking to much, in the San Antonio series he was just hitting every shot without thinking about it...

The real Thunder better show up soon or we wont have a game 6

Whelp, NBA finals are over in 5 games.

OKC is just too young and make too many mistakes under pressure.

Caps off to Miami and LeBron James for playing well, but I think they would have had their hands full if they had to play San Antonio.

OKC's defense has been awful. This whole series they have given up soooo many open 3's. Ive never seen such horrible defense in the NBA playoffs.

I don't know why they didn't use a zone defense more. It was basically Dallas' ace in the hole against Miami last year.

They are just playing awful defense all around. Too many wide open 3's that any professional can make

Playing a zone would make everything so much easier for them. Rotating and switching against the Heat's offense would be a breeze. Miami consistently looks for backdoor cuts and quick re-posts by swinging the ball. A zone defense pretty much negates those plays. Run a 2-3 every time you need to trap in the post and a 3-2 to thwart pick and rolls.

The Spurs would have at least made a game 7 of the series..

fuck it hats off to Lebron, he pulled a triple double in game 5 and sealed the victory

Shoulda, coulda, woulda's...I would think that the coach of the Thunder probably knows more about what would and wouldn't work against the Heat offense as far as zone defenses and whatnot than a bunch of dudes on a drug website. (i.e.- US) 

I mean seriously, I don't really know much about zone and man in basketball.  I know what it means in Football, so I'm guessing it's somewhat the same, kinda anyway, in basketball, but don't you think if it would've worked, he would've done it?  And if he did use it, which I don't even know if he did, cuz I pretty much just watch the game and ain't into it like Football and Baseball as far as the technical aspects of it, if it worked well, he would've kept using it?  They know a lot more about that kind of shit than we all do, especially me, I'll admit, but ya'll too.

And anybody who wants to hate on LeBron for choking or whatever is just a miserable fuck who has nothing better to do in their lives.  That dude fucking KILLED IT throughout the whole playoffs basically.  I think he averaged like 30 points, 8 rebounds and like 5 assists throughout the whole playoffs.  I'm sure those aren't the exact numbers, but I know they're close.  What did surprise me though, was that his only triple double was in the clinching game, but yeah, to the haters, go find something else to be miserable about, that dude is one of the best basketball players to ever step on a court and when his career is over with, his stats are gonna back it up, I guarantee it.

Lebron definitely came up big in this series. Miami also played with more discipline on the offensive end. They were patient. Lebron and Wade both had Finals experience and it showed. They really managed to turn it around after game 1. I was impressed. 

On the other hand, Skiles did use a zone defense at times and it seemed to work well. I'm not trying to act like some Monday morning quarterback, though. I'm sure Skiles and the whole Thunder staff are reviewing tape right now and noticing way more things than I will ever pick up on.
