I can buy both of those POV. IMO, and of course it is just an opinion (<---for Peeker), Wade and LeDouche need each other equally to obtain a title.

sportsguy33 Bill Simmons
Wade in Rd 2: 30 ppg, 7 rpg, 5 apg, 53% FG, maimed Rondo in Game 3, got PP thrown out of Game 1. Now that's a great series.


Does Simmons realize that Rd 2 from player B was: 28 ppg, 8 rpg, 3.6 apg, 47% FG? :hide: I still am waiting for sportsguy's running diary of the last two Celtic games. :pop:

FUDU is right. Those guys need each other and I am warming to the idea that they are the New World Order. Someone posted a long time ago the photoshopped noggins of LBJ, Wade and Bosh in the old wrasslin' video when Hulk Hogan went to the NWO. Will have to look for it again and then hope Durant, Rose, Nowitzki someone can vanquish them.

If Wade re-creates that statline against the Bulls and into the Finals, he damn well deserves the post-season MVP. He also just laid out whose house this is.


Just curious Madre, IYO where was Wade in that final minute +? I never knew Wade did Mo Williams impersonations.

Not trying to be a dick either, just wondering what your thoughts are as to why the alpha dog Wade wasn't in control as the game closed out? Was it Lebron being LeBron (in the I'm doing it my way too bad for everyone else self serving fashion) or something else?


The end of last night's game had nothing to do with any alpha-dog. Unless you want to explain to me how any of those last several plays were deferrable. Who should he have looked for on the two steals?

Wade's city. Wade's team. Lebron's talent (or anyone else's) has nothing to do with it.

As much as we all hate LBJ, I still think the majority of Cavs fans would be okay with him returning to the Cavs if it were within the next couple years.

Not saying that's going to happen, but it's a funny way to look at things.

I am hoping their success carries over. Boozer played well last night and their ability to share the ball was astounding (I think 35 assists). The Bulls are the #1 seed just sometimes have to remind myself of that and they have some good pieces/parts. Their depth may come into play as Thibodeaux(sp?) plays a bunch of guys. Have to hope his defensive scheming slows down Larry and Daryl and their other brother Daryl. :pop:

Well if you can, that is the perfect phrase for Zach Randolph...

Honestly, at the half I thought it was over. Biggest story of the playoffs, IMO is the fact that Zach Effin Randolph has matured the way he has.

BIGS BIGS BIGS BIGS BIGS! Can we get back to that thread on how to beat Miami and win in the playoffs? Course doesn't hurt to have the MVP PG, but they are getting killed inside on the offensive glass and 2nd chance.

Their depth means Wade, Bosh, and James are gassed in the 4th.

Taj Gibson pretty much summed it up there at the end of the ball game, no?

Other than that I hope the night is restful.

The Bulls played the exact opposite from the previous two series.

If they do that they have a chance.

Every year some team gets crowned after the second round. Last year it was Orlando. Two years ago it was Cleveland. Now it's Miami's turn.

Personally I don't think Miami looked all that much more impressive than Chicago in the first two rounds. They struggled at times against the 76ers and they needed to squeak out the last two games against the corpse that is the Celtics. When the Bulls needed to put the hammer down on Atlanta they did so with extreme prejudice.

Bosh seems to think they'll be fine
We took a beating,” Bosh said. “I think we’ll get better. This is a group that has responded well when we’re down a little bit.”


If Miami is going to continue to take that much of a beating on the offensive glass, this could be a very short series.

Was that one of the quietest 30-9 from Bosh we've seen in the playoffs?

I was surprised to see that combined James/Wade only shot 8 FT's.

There's a difference between "crowning" Miami because you thought they were an all time great squad, and thinking they were going to win the East because nobody else was playing for shit.

Miami, against the Celtics, looked like they looked much of the year. Still disjointed on offense, good defensively, and getting very little help from anyone else but the stars......unfortunately, considering how the previous rounds went, that looked more than good enough.

And the rebounding edge was a given, but the real killer was Chicago hitting half their threes. Cause if they shoot the ball well, they'll advance.

And Miami finally realized that Big Z needed to be inactive. Actually, he should have been inactive about three years ago.

Miami's inability to box out cost them big time. When you allow your opponent to get an absurd number of offensive rebounds, wins will be hard to come by. I want to crown the Heat so I can be wrong when they lose. It would be glorious. As was stated on here, looks like the Bulls hit the switch last night at beginning of second half. It was impressive. Next game is Wednesday, redonkulous. :thumbdown:

Looking forward to the OKC/Dallas series as well. Anxious to see how Dallas comes out after all the rest they have had. :pop:

Miami actually did a good job rotating and keeping a body on guys, just too much size and muscle. Kerr made note of Miami's rotations being there before the ball several times. Key was, as Lead pointed out, they were hitting their perimeter shots, and were able to get rebounds over the smaller Heat players, or just smash it home over them at the rim.

BTW have loved Gibson's game since seeing him his rokkie season, and also know why Asik was noted in just about every Chicago trade rumor. Watching those 2 not get taken to the rim on LBJ iso's was a thing of beauty.

31-8 in second chance points. :thumb up:

And YOU GUYS were the third most watching market.

Hehehehe


I watched between periods of Canucks/Sharks.

Tuned in in time to see Taj Gibson's roundhouse smash of a missed shot that put the exclamation point on it.

Did have to look twice when the scroll said Chrissy Bosh led the Heat in scoring.

Just waiting for a literal slap fight between Noah and Bosh. That's gonna be awesome.

What Herm said, on top of the chip on the Bulls' shoulder since they got played by the Debacle. They've been waiting for this since last July.

Very valid point and to add to that IMO Miami has definitely taken on much of LeBron's mentality in that their focus has been the Celtics, to the point they feel as if they've gotten over their hurdle. I think we'll see both those differing mentalities play out in this series, with Chicago having a huge edge in that department.

Apparently being in the same area code as Dirk is a foul tonight. He's been brilliant, but a lot of ticky-tack calls being made.

^Getting close to a career high in playoff points. Ref's calling it tight, lots of throws in that 3rd quarter.

J.J. Barea is more adorable than a certain Indians utility infielder ever was. Little person envy is strong toward J.J.

Dirk and Durant with unbelievable performances. Dirk got help. KD didn't.
Great start to the series. :clap:

Dirk - 24 FT attempts
KD - 19 FT attempts
Westbrook - 18 FT attempts.

OKC- 43 FT attempts
Dallas - 36

It was aclosely called game on both sides. No reason to say Dirk was getting the Wade '06 treatment.
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

And so the excuses begin:

@WindhorstESPN: LeBron is battling a cold ahead of tonight's Game 2. Said it has been bothering him for 3 days.
