If lakers meet heat in the finals and get swept. You won't hear the end of it. To be fair, they might get swept well before then.

On the other hand, they COULD win. I'm not expecting them to win but in the off-chance that they do, I'd say "I'm not surprised." I am still betting my money on Spurs/OKC/Heat to win before the Lakers though.

I'm still jelly at Heat's easy road to the Finals.

How could you possibly feel anything positive towards a player capable of shameful displays like this? Offensive flopping is the thing that's most unlikeable about OKC, and you dislike most of them? Durant does it too, but has never done anything this ridiculous.

I said I don't hate Durant. Just the rest of the team.

Dallas is heartbreaking too. I love Dirk. Except when he hits those daggers against the Lakers.

This is what it must feel like when Kobe's hitting those daggers.

Wade was likable before Bron got there. Now he acts entitled and like a douche...as a basketball player though, I still like him more than Bron. Bron's better, but I hate his choking bull-in-a-china shop style.

Abbott's an idiot. He wrote an entire article about Bynum not getting touches and almost all of the sequences were with Kobe. He has an agenda and he's going to Fox News style hammer it home till everyone agrees that alpha dogs, superstars, and isolations in crunch time are ignored or diminished despite that almost all championships require those.


In fact, while harping about lakers crunch time deficiencies, he didn't actually mention LA's record in close or overtime games. Which is INSANELY good and always has been in their contending years with Kobe,

But i feel like dallas had those two first games in the bag......OKC might have just pulled off the most underwhelming sweep of the playoffs EVER if they go on to win.

I used to dislike LeBron a good bit, but that's kind of mellowed ever since he teamed up with Wade. That's when I realized how much of a piece of shit Wade is compared to LeBron.


Still, I'd rather the Heat, as an organization, win instead of Boston. Fuck Boston. Not that they have a shot.

And as much as I respect Timmy and love(d) his game, I don't want them winning another title either. Ever. Fuck SA and their scrub coach.

So yeah, fuck Boston, SA, and Wade.

Did we talk about this? If so, we should talk about it again:

But lost amid the Knicks' swoon is that Carmelo Anthony has been setting an individual record for postseason futility. The Wall Street Journal noted after New York's first loss in the series that it was Anthony's 50th career playoff game, and that he had the worst won-loss percentage of anyone to make that many postseason appearances in the last 20 years.

1. Carmelo Anthony, 16-36, .308

2. Mookie Blaylock, 18-36, .333

3. Eduardo Najera, 20-39, .339

4. Chris Dudley, 20-34, .370

5. Brad Miller, 19-31, .380

In fact, I have only seen that fire during that series only (against Lakers).

Also, Wade has always been much more unlikable than Bron. How can any non-Miami guy root for Wade and his act? Fuck him.

His out of this world self shot 40% in that Laker series. I mean.. good for him, but this myth of him being the best offensive player in basketball was just hilarious and i pointed out its idiocy every time.

I've noted on a few occasions the parallels between the Mavs and the Heat team that beat them in the Finals five years earlier, but of late they've really taken things to another level. The Heat followed up their championship by posting a .537 winning percentage and getting swept in the first round by a Chicago team they'd defeated the previous postseason; the Mavs followed up theirs by posting a .545 winning percentage and are in danger of being swept by an Oklahoma City team they defeated the previous postseason.

Miami kept things close in the first two games, losing the opener by five after having a last shot to tie in the final seconds and then Game 2 by right, but went home and lost both games by double-digits. Dallas nearly won the first two games in Oklahoma City, but lost both narrowly and then went home and were spanked by the Thunder in Game 3.

From the way each won the title -- veteran-laden underdogs rallying from 2-1 down and winning Game 6 on the road for the franchise's first title -- the similarities have been eerie. It's continued this season with the unusual in-season breaks from the team (Pat Riley, Dirk Nowitzki), the lethargic former Lakers on each squad (Shaquille O'Neal, Lamar Odom), the disastrous opening (Miami lost its opener by 42 at home; Dallas was blown off the floor at home in its first two games), and now, quite possibly, a season-ending first-round sweep -- linking Dallas and Miami again as the only defending champs to suffer this fate.

Let's hope for Dallas' sake that this is where the chain breaks: The 2007-08 Heat went 15-67.

eerie.

I never said he was the best offensive player though. I was actually more impressed with his defense. I don't think he's played like that since. Offensively, I thought he played well, but I could be wrong. 40% doesn't sound so good anymore.

That would, under the circumstances, be considered a fluke.

The Nuggets lost that series in 5 quarters. That broke them.
The last half in Denver they just kept getting punched in the mouth, styled on, etc

But for Melo, it's weird--he's a top player offensively, he should be able to get out of the first round more often.

Tyson doesn't impact the game AT ALL, at least this year in the playoffs. Doesn't help he has no help at the guard positions.

Brooklyn Nets gear, logo is hideous. Has that dreadful "gangster" look to it. Miami Heat have black and white uniforms and I cringe every time they wear them.
