Funny how the Heat loses 3 games and the blogosphere goes apeshit. This and crickets chirp.

Bulls, Celtics & Heat in some order. Not unlike the Celtics, Hawks and Pistons in the day.


Not funny. It's human nature.

How many times did your folks congratulate you or pat you on the head for bringing the car back in one piece when you went to the mall or out with the boys?

I'd bet none.

But I bet they went apeshit whenever you didn't. ;-) ;) :wink:

I've ridden the JB ledging/title winning roller coaster for years, but this may be the first time I've witnessed him doing it with another team.

I guess what I'm SAYIN' is that unless peeps REALLY thought this team was winning 70 in year one, I'm at a loss tto see how the dogging is legit in bad stretches. Not like they don't have but like 5th best record in the association. I know they are loathsome, but the hatas jump on them like they suck lik ethe Kings or somthing. They don't. They are damn good.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a hata, but I just try to keep it real somewat.

What we're doggin' on them is for having a worse record than the last two Cavs teams, stats comparable to those same Cavs teams, an increasingly shitty record the higher the opponent's winning percentage goes, and LeIso magically transporting itself to South Beach. They're good, maybe they're damn good, but maybe we were too. And if so, then we, KG, Howard, and maybe now even D-Rose know where this show is going to end.

JB at one point (I ain't looked in the last week or so) these fucks were 1-18 in clutch shots at the end of the game. I don't give a fuck if they can beat the sisters of the poor. Their clutch suck and their problems against top five teams show a team with serious offensive issues (as does watching Wade and LBJ not know what to do at the end of games when the other has the ball).

They are talented, they are not a title thing and they aren't even as good as the past Cavs. More talented x a million but their is serious chemistry issues. And without Udonis they don't even have a post defender of Andy caliber, which is gonna eat their assholes in the playoffs.

Stop being a front runner.

Nothing better than playing for wins and losses:

James sneaked a late peek at the arena stat boards and noticed Miami was in position to have three 30-point scorers, with he and Wade already there. So the Heat got the ball in Bosh's hands, knowing Houston would foul him right away while trying to come back. Bosh went to the line with 26 seconds left, needing to make both free throws to join Wade and James with 30.

^^ funny how the talk from Wade/James was about making history and getting Chris to 30, yet no mention of Bibby having a decent game by going 4-5 from 3 pt range and being the difference in that victory. But hey, as long as they keep posting up these type of records during the regualr season, more power to them.

It's kinda scary watching them lately as if they've finally got it. I guess we'll see if they can be as consistent come playoff time when teams will be able to adjust throughout the series.

Playing Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Houston will do that.

Your telling statline of the day:

+/- on-court & off-court for Lebron James:
'08-'09 +13.7/-7.3
'09-'10 +10.5/-5.5
'10-'11 +9.3/-1.6

A better supporting cast and talent would drop his on-court +/- a full point? Bosh's went up ten, Wade's two. One would think Lequit's would also go up, but funny how his actually dropped.

Despite it being played out and overly stated, the point is JB the Cavaliers (of the past 2 seasons) were not near as bad as everyone wants to make them out to be, it's that simple. Ego's, wallets and vagina's are simply clouding people's judgments and memories.

Same league, same schedule yet he Heat will not win 61 or 66 games this year, might only win 57. You take a 1 man wrecking crew (more times than not a man considered the best in the game) off of a team of role players (minus another All Star) and put him on a team with 2 All Stars (1 of which is also considered a best in the game) and the outcome is obvious, right? Not to mention a man who makes everyone around him better...open & shut case, right? Well apparently bacons is still the only thing that makes everything else around it better.

The numbers are out there to back this point up, not to mention chemistry and the fact the Heat have 3 starting SFs (or SGs depending on how you look at it). Go start a team w/ Karl Malone, Tim Duncan and Charles Barkley and see how well you do.

James Cameron if you're reading this, remake The Wizard of Oz and shoot it in South Beach, you won't have to go far to cast 3 guys that need a brain, a heart and courage. You should even pay to name it The Wiz.

That’s because TMLP was LBJ’s personal towel boy. Miami has a real owner and real president that ain’t bending over for anyone.

Heard LBJ actually thanked him for all the scratch he gave him when he bought into Liverpool with the Red Sawx owners…. :dancingbananagaything:

This is so racist. We all know tWoA is African-American, but do hey need to point out he's a minority in the headline?

In other news, TMLP just aquired Man U to kick his team's ass.

This was all legit. One of them hummers for a hummer deals. Gloria's all bidnis.

This is not her first run in with the law, she was arrested for a DUI in Cleveland back in 2006. There was also controversy surrounding a 2003 loan she got the day James turned 18 — and was still in high school — to buy him an H2 Hummer vehicle.
