Thread: NBA playoffs

    Re: NBA playoffs



    Wade is getting hammered by the NBA nerd/junkies for his weak, lazy, and quite frankly, disrespectful defense...He's not the only one, but he is probably the poster child this series for the up and down lack of focus...ball watching, extreme low percentage gambling in the post and outright stupidly repeatedly leaving Danny Green wide open for 3's.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    As far as what I think will happen...I think Miami wins game 6 and loses game 7.

    Miami's role players could not have played any worse on the road after playing well at home. Cole, Chalmers, Haslem, Miller and Birdman all laid duds on the road while the Spurs went off at home.

    That will even out quite a bit at home IMHO.

    Unfortunately for the Heat, their Jekyl and Hyde play is what they are at this point...it's been a month of the same...terrifying Heat defense one game...baffling ball watching and gambling defense the next.

    San Antonio is moving the ball well, but in games like yesterday, they don't eve have too...Parker and Ginobli killed whoever the Heat thew at them in ISO's and simple plays.

    Like this...this was a simple hand off a the top of the 3 point line and Wade is in no mans land sagging off the one guy who is in NBA Jam mode.


    Look at this complete overreaction by Miami in the paint...that's not Duncan down there with the ball, it's Tiago Splitter. lol


    The Heat like others have said have lived with that on and off switch all season...even during the winning streak, how many times did they fall behind by 15 in the second half only to come back after ratcheting up the defense.

    While I have confidence the Heat will get the job done in game 6, I don't have much at all that they can do it 2 games in a row.

    Pop is two steps ahead of Spo, but I'm struggling to even blame Spo for the lack of defensive effort.

    Re: NBA playoffs

    there is so much over reaction to stopping Parker that they leave guys like Green wide open. And when SA shoots 60% like last night, they're gonna win.

    The thing is, with Boston's big 3, winning a championship and getting to another was consider success. With Miami's big 3, winning a championship and getting to two more (if they lose) will be considered a failure. Because of the 'not 1, not 2..." stuff. Bosh will be gone after this year IMO

    I actually think the best move would be to move Wade and keep Bosh, but we all know Riley would never trade him.

    The overreaction of what Lebron said at a fricking pep rally is ridicoulous. Part of the reason I pull for Miam half the time - cause I don't feel like hearing the ridiculous "hating" the get. So annoying.

    same here, I'd like to see them pull it out. But they put the targets on their back so it is what it is

    Really? I think they need a legit post threat, which Bosh isn't.

    Yeah its not like Bron would have been hated if he just stayed in Cleveland. His choice, he deserves the consequence. It seems to me alot of people have come around on the Heat though, though I do not like them, I respect them.

    Why does he deserve to be hated because he chose to leave Cleveland?

    He isn't because Miami has taken that out of his game.

    No he isn't and never has been a power guy, but you can work out of the post with footwork and quickness which he has and he did so in Toronto.

    Miami has reduced him into a jump shooter in their attempt to remove as many of their players from the paint on offense in order to give Lebron and Wade as much driving space as possible. Hell, they tried to even turn Bosh into a threat from 3 with miserable results.

    I think most hate him from the decision TV show and the total lack of self awareness with the "not 1, not 2, not 3 etc" celebration talk.

    Where are the people that hate Tony Parker because he cheated on his wife with one of his teammates wives?

    Priorities.

    I think most people don't care all that much about off the field/court stuff as much as things that happen on the court/field unless it's perceived to be really egregious.

    This is going to sound horrible, but I don't think a cheating athlete rings much of a bell these days with people...many almost expect it.

    Because if people hated on athletes that were cheating, we would be hating on 75% of them.
