Oh yeh, here's a good tweet from the fat boy:

Brian Windhorst ‏@WindhorstESPN
There's some reasons why I won't get into but Wade & James not going to podium after last 2 losses is not a good look.

As was stated by everyone and anyone that writes about the NBA, those two makin Bosh the sacrificial podium lamb is hilarious and telling all at the same time.

very typical and classic Windy though..."some reasons I won't get into"....guy is aweseome when it comes to ambiguous open references leaving the reader wanting to know more. He never seems to close the loop but is great at opening it.

It's the elbow, Delonte and Gloria...."lots more to know" and someday I'll tell you inuendo.

Don't know about you but I'm highly certain I would buy the book.

He's great at planting the scandalous seed. leaving it open and wording it in such a way that he stays out of trouble with LBJ, Wade, etc..

Are the "reasons" he refers to reasons why not going to the podium looks bad? If so, meh, who cares and it's too obvious that it looks bad.

I give Windy more credit than writing something so obvious.

I think he wants the reader to interpret it that there are multiple reasons they didn't go to the podium...they lost so there's that obvious reason..but I think he is really wanting the reader to ask what are the other reasons? Are they pissed at Spo, are they pissed at each other, ...?

Maybe I'm reading too much into it but he is a really talented writer and he seems to write in a way that there are often two clear ways to interpret his statements. I think he does it on purpose to make the reader wonder but to also give him an out if someone calls him on it. He can just say, "I didn't mean it like that"

Windy will right a book. Hell, he probably already has a rough draft. But it's too early to burn that bridge. He can't get too uppity while LeBron is still paying his rent.

What a sloppy game by both sides, yet I couldn't change the channel.

How many times is Pierce going to continue to make a big shot over LBJ in the playoffs?

Battier trying to play the part of bad ass and failing

KG making up reasons to play big (too old) ala Jordan.

Mike Miller needs to be taken out of the rotation and James Jones needs to see more minutes

Shuttlesworth has yet to light it up from outside.

Wade has yet to have a stellar shooting night

Rondo shot like, well Rondo yet dished out 13 dimes and out hustled the entire Heat team at times (aside from Cole picking his pocket)

Haslem looks lost and Bosh is slow in his rotations in his limited time on the court.

Rivers giving Spo a coaching clinic this series.

Hollins and Sasha keeping that bench warm and playing the role of M.L. Carr.
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

Spo is looking like Mike Brown in letting the other coach dictate what he wants his team to do. Reactive rather than proactive isn't going to help you win games, especially when your team is the odds on favorite. Looks and sounds like spring of 2010 except the favorites are wearing black and red rather than wine and gold.

I'll give Eye this credit.Hhe's not talking about W's and L's. He's talking interest. Sort of how the Bucks were for him 2 sesons ago. It's not front runnin' in the sense you think of the 38 year old ass hat wearing a Palamaulu jersey in Strongsville mall. He's not that kind of fan. he's taliking about following a team wathcing them grow and gel in the sense that one might follow a minor league baseball propsect.

Life is one big AAU tourney to Bron. He's never been on a real "team" in his life. Clsesst, sadly, was the cavs. He doesn't get it and never will. War: Roger Bacon.

The Heat are uncoachable for anyone whose name doesn't rhyme with "Jackson" with the full faith and credit of the team president.

I now he's followed their core players, and the growth of the team, but it just comes across as dooshi frontn, but then again it's 023.

I hate to harp on this, I know it all sounds a bit crazy, but IF LeBron were to end up back in CTown, is that what it would take for him and the Cleveland fan base to rid themselves of their respective demons. Exonerate him from his egotestical gutlessness and pardon us from our hateful ways and bitterness from the beat down of losing our whole lives?

I thought Spo did a terrific job last night monitoring Bosh's minutes.

I think Bosh was able to get in a 10k after the game and there was no way that would have been possible had he played when the game mattered. At least his offensive rebounding wasn't needed in the fourth when the Heat Other Three went crazy with scoring.

Really, if everyone else on the floor other than Wade, Bosh and LBJ would have been something like 8/27 then Spo might be catching some shit for either the sets he put the team in or the sets that basically are "Run LeBron or Wade iso and pray to Christ they hit ridiculous shots".

Another good night for coach Spo and that solid supporting cast. :clap:

No FUDU, you dumb cunt, it's about following a sport on the whole instead of tying my dick to Tristan Thompson, Alonzo Gee and Dan Gilbert's lips on the nightly.

Following Love and Rubio is something that is really enjoyable to watch on the nightly and a team you can easily cheer for...

I watch games for pure enjoyment and could really give two shits who is playing in them and I know the T-Wolves will be at or near the top of the enjoyment rankings next year.

In what universe is that all the NBA's three-time Most Valuable Player can ask for? To play well enough for a chance to win?

I never figured you for a 70's Cali soft adult contemporary fan.

Don't think you can use an easier reference when it comes to describing some chumps who have no fuckin heart , so it was like using Big Crayons .

Even the Village people had catchy tunes , without referencing intent , hell school teachers and kids could whistle the lyrics .

and I wouldn't mind Patsy Cline and Lorreta Lynn pining and mooning over me in none of themsongs neither , so to me art is art .

Can't tell ya what era or if its modern contemporary or pop , but just if i like it or not.

The Funkadelics playing Maggott Brain in full regala , just has to be seen , like the Pyramids , the pictures don't due it justice .

Once I get my new hip , I'm looking forward to checking out Swerbs Golfing outing next year
during my comeback , negative on the EWF , already scheduled back and forth to hells kitchen much of the summer , Raven country U.S.A.

Yeah, I'd imagine that would be a hell of a thing to see.

I always talk about how the homeless people in Baltimore froth at the mouth unlike the homeless people anywhere else due to the incomprehensible amount of crack they've hit up over the year.

I'm 99.99999% sure SD froths at the mouth the same way.

Woah.


I just think he likes playing basketball. He likes dunking, likes running a player down and blocking shots from behind, likes throwing beautiful passes through tiny cracks of air that only he and maybe Rajon Rondo can see. I think it means LeBron sees basketball as a chance to display his wonderful talents. It’s a game to him in a way that it probably wasn’t to Jordan or Magic or Bird. They obviously liked it when the game got hard. LeBron might like it but it sure doesn’t look that way. Dragging that sorry team around in Cleveland for so long while trying to win a championship for a hometown that hasn’t won anything since ’64; LeBron was eager to head down to South Beach, join other great players who might make some game-winning shots, and just play ball again.


Puts Bristol on blast epically.

I ended up watching a few minutes of ESPN’s pre-game show and watched with awe as they went around the table and all four panelists picked the Heat. I’m not saying any of them should have picked the Celtics to change things up -- though that might have made for, you know, actually interesting television -- but I am wondering why they would go to each person individually to have them say exactly the same thing. They couldn’t just say something like, “OK, is anyone here brave or crazy enough to pick the Celtics?” and then condensed their identical picks into one cohesive segment. Instead they went around the table like there was drama involved:

“I think Miami is awesome. They will win. What do you think?”

“Well, I hate to disagree with you, but I think Miami is formidable and fearsome. They will win.”

“Look, both of y’all are wrong. Miami is stunning and magnificent. They will win big.”

“OK, well, I guess I have to be the one then. I say the Heat are awe-inspiring, dazzling, glorious, impressive, majestic, monumental, striking and superb. The Celtics might as well not even show up.”*

*This little production led to one of my favorite moments of the year so far, when the game ended and the ESPN crew savaged the Heat for being a bunch of poorly coached losers who have no team chemistry and have no idea how to win big games. At least Magic apologized for his pick first.

ESPN's pregame and half-game crew is the worst crew in sports, which is hilarious when you consider that TNT is the best... easily in all of sports.

The beauty of Posnanski is in that article.

He said absolutely nothing original, creative, new or that hasn't been said here or by posters here elsewhere a million times.

LBJ is gifted and wants things easy and ESPN/Windhorst are pathetic fucking Heat whores.

But the way he says it is better than anyone else.

I think Pos missed the last mile. James had no problem going into 'fark you' mode from '07 through '09, and its pretty much a given that he had given up on the Cavs in '10 because he knew our chances weren't great and he already had Miami on his mind. So why has the only time he's had a performance like that in the past two years was last Sunday against the Pacers? Why doesn't he like to embrace his inner Jordan?

And then I go back to the talk about James always wanting to be liked. In Cleveland, everyone from Gilbert on down knew he was The Guy. There weren't any dinged feelings if he went Video Game James and everybody else was left at the bus stop. In Miami, that's not the case. The only time he's gone video game was with Bosh in street clothes and Wade gimping his way through some godawful performances. I don't think that's a coincidence.

I'm guessing its not that its too hard for James to take over the game because the other team is hanging tough, its more that it might be because he can't live with Wade (and maybe Bosh) pouting in the back seat.

This is fact.

I wish TNT was able to cover the finals in some respect.

Maybe the Turner/CBS Sports deal for March Madness will extend to all aports, and they'll be able to make a deal with the NBA.

Funniest thing about the ESPN crew on Tuesday wasn't the pre-game that Pos pointed out, it was the pre-game AND post game. Look at those comments those guys made, then 2 and a half hours later every God Damned one of them went 180. Broussard saying the team "isn't built to win big in this league," Wilbon with the "one on one basketball" take, and Barry, after lauding the Heat defense all year, including before the game stated, "The Heat just don't have anything they can hang their hats on..."

Absolutely classic - and par for the course.

Any NBA fan or NFL fan that watches pre-game shows is doing themselves a diservice.

Pre-game show for every NFL Game:

Let's look at the keys for this game-

Announcer 1 - Gonna boil down to match-ups....

Announcer 2 - This game is gonna be decided in the trenches....

Announcer 3 - The key will be turnovers...


Every. God. Damn. Game.

Just hoping LBJ really fell in love with his jumper tonight and continues to shoot them in game 7... bringing back the LeSettle monicker that we had come to know. Of course, I hope he misses a bunch of the LeJs.

Boston missed a lot of easy shots and a bunch of midrange relatively easy jumpers as well... shots you're used to seeing Boston make. Add in a bunch of TOs.
