Miami has missed a lot of Ft's as well. Miami did play a great 1st have in game 2, but not so much in the 2nd half(even though they pulled it out).

Ya 90% is terrible.

This trend of nerd wear in the NBA is ridiculous. I'm waiting for the blurred vision population to come out with the ACLU behind them to put a stop to this. Wearing nerd glasses with no lens? That's blatantly offensive to every bad eyed dork out on the streets. the senate needs to step away from real work like Clemens or Pacquio and put a stop to this.

Thunder look weak. Harden couldn't hit the side of a barn. Too much individual dribbling. All one on one. Lazy when getting back to defense. They are lucky the spurs lost their shooting touch in that series. Heat are just better at every aspect of the game

Well they have a little over a period to save their season, and they are only down by 3. Basketball is a game of runs, and they could use one.

On back to back plays Thunder players were knocked all around. Harden was bumped a couple times, and I'm waiting to see the replay after the commercial break, but it looked like Fisher got knocked out of bounds and no call, which led to a 3 pointer. So it goes from a potential one point Thunder lead to a six point Heat lead.

Westbrook with the rookie mistake. Veterans always win rings. Young teams do not.

It'd be one thing if it were just one or two Thunder fans talking about it but i have several people on my facebook, at work and on here saying the same thing. Coincidencently, they took two consecutive commercial breaks after James went down. The 2nd one was a little longer than normal. Something is really fishy about that...

And what happened to team basketball? I have never seen OKC use so much isolation until this game. Miami just seemed more cohesive as a unit than they have ever been.

If you let everyone else tell it, the refs are the reason Miami winning and it has nothing to do with LBJ playing out of his mind or the Heat even dribbling the basketball around the court themselves.

Oh no doubt. And not only would they not be complaining but we'd get to see a lot of "LeBust" and "LeJoke" comments, and how Durant is better than LeBron. Instead, they're choking on their humble pie a la mode.

But no worries, OKC could still win a game or two so they'll have their chances to take some more shots.

I guess players shouldn't be expected to look out for what's best for their careers (going to a new team). Apparently all these players come in the league for the stardom and notoriety instead of actually wanting to play basketball.

What's surprised me is how much the "other guys" that supposedly suck on the heat have come up big for them. Chalmers with 25 points, two steals. Battier has had some big plays in the series too. Very impressive. James has been the model of clutch consistency especially the last two series. Some night's he's had help, other's he has not. He's won games both ways. Perhaps this will silence the "James doesn't make his team better" and the more stupid "James doesn't rise to the occasion" criticisms.

Not a OKC fan, but I am pulling for them in this series.

I recognize James as playing out of his mind. He is the best player in the world. but, I still don't like him. Fair or unfair, he has brought a lot of it on himself.


Anyways, carry on. It's far easier to lump everyone who has a different opinion as first time irrational NBA fans.

I agree Lebron is on another level. You can see how much his game has matured since even last year. He is easily the best player in the world right now. It's rare to see him take jump shots..he almost always drives to the basket/posts up and either scores or makes a nice pass to someone wide open due to him being double teamed. He is easily the MVP of the playoffs and finals. Having said that, there have been more questionable calls in Miami's favor...every game it has happened, that is a fact.

I agree. People notice the calls more when the team that they are rooting for is down. I'll say that I have notice that the Heat have gotten more calls, but I wouldn't say it is because the NBA is fixed. The NBA has the Heat in the Finals, so they got what they wanted to get ratings. At this point in the series it would make more sense to give the Thunder some calls to extend the series.

1. The weather sucks down here.

2. Rio!!!!!!!!

3. Play until you cannot play anymore. King James gave it his all.

4. Harden-scared to shoot and still looking for fouls on his way to a dunk/layup

5. I would still breakup Westbrook/Durant. NOT a good combo. I do not think they mesh well long term.

6. Players have stepped up for the Heat. Whether it's Rio who drives for layup, Shane tipping the ball over Durant at the end. THE MIAMI HEAT WANT IT MORE.

7. TEAM - It spells Miami Heat

After watching Harden make every shot attempt and the refs clearly in love with the thunder by getting every call possible against the spurs, I thought the thunder would roll. Clearly they are too young and lack good coaching. Young teams will never win trophies. Shouldve listened to my gut feeling in thinking the thunder were over hyped and over rated. Spurs were the better team. Just got no calls and key role players shrunk up at the wrong time

Heat are the better team thunder need more experience.

Westbrook is NOT an elite guard in this league yet. He has time to grow into an elite guard though. Elite guards do not dribble off their foot in a crucial time of the game to take the lead. Elite guards know the shot clock was at 5 seconds. Thats on Scott brooks too. A great coach would remind the entire team it's 5 seconds.

Some of you, because of your blind hate, are completely missing what Simmons is talking about here:


For three quarters, LeBron James played at the single highest level I have ever seen from him. (Yes, I went to Game 6 of last round's Boston series.) This was the greatest Bird impression ever attempted (and executed), something that could only be called "power point guard." He did whatever he wanted on the low post, crashed the boards, got his teammates involved, made the right play time and time again it was like watching Bird 2.0, only if Bird was also one of the three best defenders in the league. To repeat: LeBron was playing like a rich man's version of the fifth-best basketball player of all time. I don't care how much you hated "The Decision" if you can't appreciate what LeBron James is doing right now, you need to start following another sport. It's one of the greatest night-to-night athletic feats we have ever witnessed.

This probably goes without saying, but not all Thunder fans are as ridiculously homerrific as the small sample size we have here.

Thunder haven't been bringing their A game for the last 2 games for sure, and really for most of this final series. Heat are executing to the top of their capabilities.

I can't say that I understand basketball well enough to know how the Heat are stifling our offense...from my vantage point it looks like they injected some retard-serum into Harden, Fischer, and to some extent, Ibaka. The rest of the team just isn't helping the 2 superstars out enough. Collison has played out of his mind (in a good way) in spurts.

That entire Rovell article is about how people still won't like James because he comes across as entitled or whatever. That has nothing to do with how good he has been in these playoffs (he has been amazing) - it's just showing a lot of casual observers don't care about the actual game, they care about personality (at least as they perceive it). Shocking.

And that's exactly what Simmons was referring to: if you are still so caught up in hating James because of how he handled FA two years ago that you can't appreciate/acknowledge how amazing he has been the last couple months, you likely aren't a very big fan of the game itself. James does things you don't get to see very often, no matter how much NBA you watch.

It's like Brady or Manning (pre-Broncos) playing QB against us in the last decade: you might have hated the SOBs, but as someone who watches the game religiously, you can't help but but be glad you at least got to witness a once-in-a-generation talent at its peak.

I'd laugh my head off if OKC storms back to take the series, but as it stands I can at least have some awe watching the best talent of his era play near his peak potential.

What this article shows is that, there's nothing you can do to stop it. So you're going to have to deal with the fact that people don't like him. The article also points out that there has been a shift in how people see him (from good to bad). What people like you (ie the LeBron apologists) fail to realize is that there are a variety of reasons for why a lot of different people don't like him. What the LeBron apologists try to do is over simplify the matter by trying to pretend that every one who dislikes him, dislike him for the very same reasons. People like you and TonyR continuously fail to wrap your minds around these things, that are simple and should be obvious. You also seem to fail to understand that you're not required to like someone. So again, deal with it.

Jason in LA
06-21-2012, 10:28 AM
The Celtics aren't hated like the Heat for making a big 3 because Pierce was already there (I believe he was under contract, so he didn't chose to partner up with two other super stars), Garnet was traded for, so again, he didn't seek out to create a big 3, and the only player who decided to go to Boston was Ray Allen. Two of their big 3 got there by the way of the draft and making a trade. Only one through free agency.

But the Heat, they had three players pretty much decide to land in one spot. So the Heat really didn't do anything to build that team, they were just the lucky ones to be the choice where these three decided to go. That rubs fans the wrong way, especially fans who have a favorite team. It under minds the work of every other team who is trying to draft smart, make smart trades, and make the smart free agent pick ups.

Some people say that the Lakers built super teams. Yeah, but looking at what they did in '96, they took big time risks. They traded a legit center for a high school kid that nobody ever heard about, and there was no telling if Kobe would actually become what Jerry West spotted. And when they traded Divac, they didn't have Shaq, and there was no telling if Shaq would even come. The Lakers made aggressive moves that could have blown up in their faces. Instead it set them up for the next 16 years.

I can't think of any other team that has been constructed in the fashion that the Heat were. It is almost like cherry picking titles. People aren't going to root for that, which is why a lot of people were rooting for the Thunder. They made great moves to build that team, and then they had to develop their young talent. It is the opposite of what the Heat did.

You don't know that Wade was never going to leave. He could have, and if LeBron had gone in a different direction, I wouldn't have been surprised if Wade did leave. There were rumors that he may have ended up in a few places. If I'm remembering right, the Bulls were one of those teams.

Point is they were all free agents and decided to sign with the same team. The Heat didn't have to do anything, they were just the chosen team.

I'd say you're going a bit far in saying that he's hated as much as somebody who committed rape. And it is okay not to like a player. I've never liked Tom Brady. And before a few months ago, nobody around here liked Peyton Manning.

A bit far? Yes, I'm exaggerating to make the point.

And as for your Brady comment, yes you hate him. So do I. But you will admit what a great QB he is, right? I do. And that's exactly my point.

Proabably zero. The west will still have stronger teams. Dallas will throw huge money in free agency. Spurs will have some money to spend and 2 potential sleeper stars in Nando and Lorbek joining the team. Lakers will adjust. Clippers are still progressing. Memphis will be the sleeper pick though.

True enough. I think the west should be very competitive again, but OKC still has a leg up until we see how those other teams adjust. The East though...as something of a Bulls fan I'm concerned on several levels about Rose's knee/long-term prognosis. The Knicks attempts at star power haven't worked. The only other mega-star in that conference, Howard, is stranded in mess partially of his own making.

Of course at this exact moment in time everything looks favorable for the Heat, but even projecting it out a little they are in as good of shape as they likely imagined when they hatched their 2010 FA plan.

I'm interested in seeing if deron Williams and Howard team up.

Bulls are the best all around team in the east IF Rose stays healthy. Heat had role players get hot at the right time. They were only like 19-13 down the stretch. I wouldve liked to see Memphis spurs or lakers against Miami in this series. They match up better. Thunder is just too young. The refs were not on their side, but they just
Looked stale on offense. Harden shrunk up big time.

I wouldn't say 55 games won in the regular season was horrible. Jordan came back after that 55 win season late in the following year, so most don't count that. The next full season they went on the 2nd 3peat. I think they would've won 6 in a row had he not retired

I didn't think that there were any great teams in the 90s. Partly due to expansion. No team was stacked, included the Bulls. The Bulls didn't need a loaded team to run through the NBA that decade, and the Lakers and Celtics from the 80s would have run right through them.
