Lets hear more dissecting of the Heat since you know everything about them Agamenmon. Tell me more. I need a couple more laughs before I head out tonight.

Also wanted to add Dalenbert could be an option if he's willing to come on lower money and go for a ring.

You could say his rebounds were clutch? Only cause duncan was sitting.
It still blows my mind that Popp made that move.

I hope he takes some heat for that and letting ginobili handle the rock. Sometimes that FO treats him like he's God and can do no wrong. He pretty much controls the personnel decisions lately from what I've seen. Stephen Jackson was a solid contributer off the bench all season yet it was his decision to cut him. He would've provided a spark off the bench in these playoffs. Instead bonner stunk it up the whole year and in playoffs. Useless bum taking up a spot and Jackson's minutes. Another questioning move is not letting Blair do anything. Weird year for Pop.

Popps seemed to me to make some horrible decisions.
Sitting Parker, putting Ginobli on the court after making horrendous decisions, sitting Duncan, I mean crap. What the hell?

I think they were gassed out. No energy left. They look like terrible decisions now because it didn't work out for the Spurs.

Odd to dump someone before the playoffs start. Just odd. We will not know because maybe he was becoming a cancer in the locker room. Pop runs a tight ship. Spurs almost won a chip. Can't say it was a horrible move since they came so close.

Tough for the Spurs to win against the Heat when guys like Battier and Chalmers are raining long distance 3's off the backboard.

Consistently playing defense 7 feet off Lebron won't help your chances either.

Looking over the Heat roster.

Ray Ray needs to pick up his option. Rio will have his option picked up by the team. Birdman will hopefully pick up his option.

Hopefully the Heatles can run a C rotation of Dalembert/Oden/Anthony. PF of Bosh/UD/Birdman.

If the Heat can get a Dalembert to finally come down and play for a ring. Oden would be in an excellent situation to make a comeback. We can do this.

Wade needs a ton of rest on his knees, and hopefully no more surgery.

Dagger shooters in Miller/Battier will be back for spacing.

I like our chances for a 3peat! Oh yah!

The story went that he refused to accept a diminished role and thought he shoujd be playing more than ginobili and green. Pop cut him then.

It's pick your poison with Lebron. When he's playing like he did in game seven, good luck

One could make a similar argument the other way with Danny Green. Without him playing way above his normal output are the Spurs even in the series?

This is true. Miami got the outside shooting they needed, when they needed it. It's kind of admirable that San Antonio was even in it to the end like they were, given that Miami had the 3 going and considering how game 6 unfolded. And it wasn't like they got anything from Green or Neal in that last game either. I guess being aggressive helped SA since they shot well from the line.

Sitting your best rebounding option in Duncan, when the Heat had Bosh out there anyways, was stupid. Helped the Heat gain 2 offensive rebounds that enabled them to come back and tie it in game 6.
And Ginobli was playing awful every game except game 5 basically.

Not even guarding the best player in the world is probably about the worst defensive plan I can think of.

Rumor: Paul Pierce to Cavs for 2nd round picks #31 & #33

http://www.celticsblog.com/2013/6/21...nd-picks-31-33

I doubt it happens, and he should retire a Celtic.

He's becoming a better jumpshooter and 3ball. Will need to continue his post work. He will need to continue to develop them as he ages.

Ill have to agree with this. He should come to Miami and backup the King if hes bought out. He only has a year left on his contract with a $5 million buyout.

It was Kawhi. At least that's what had been circulating through local SA media. After his kid died he kinda lost it. Was seeing less playing time and not taking it well. Kawhi was an easy target to vent his frustrations.

The Heat rely on the 3 ball and it worked. drive and kick to the open 3 or rotate the ball for open 3. Battier was huge game 7 with the hot hand. He finally came alive.

They waived him after march 1 so he couldn't join a playoff roster. Apparantly 3 teams were interested the day he was waived. He'll for sure be on a team next year. Just not the spurs. He can just be a headache. Good on the court wild off. Losing his child during the season did something to his brain, and I don't blame him for that.

Paul Pierce isn't going to Miami for ****.

I'd love to see him and Rivers go to LA and team up with CP3 and Griffin. Would be awesome to see.
