    Re: NBA playoffs

    First and foremost, I have to give respect to LeBron James. He took control of game 7. The ball was in his hands and he basically said, either I'm going to shoot you to death or your going to play up and let me slash, so that I can REALLY wreak of havoc.

    The Spurs played him the right way the entire series and he still made them pay. Chris Bosh didn't score. Mike Miller didn't score. Ray Allen hardly scored. LeBron made San Antonio pay for every mistake they made.

    On San Antonio's end, while I still feel that Leonard missing the first of two was the pinpoint moment of that game, I have to give him credit for responding so well in game 7. Where Green completely faded, Leonard rose to the occasion.

    Duncan missing one at point blank range to tie was the big shocker to me. His reaction told the story.

    Who the hell knows what Ginobli was doing.

    These are the type of performances that you need to back up the hype, which, coincidentally, isn't hype anymore.

    Congratulations to LeBron.

    I think this is why so many people were pulling for the Spurs and so many people are turned off by 90% of the NBA. The talent level is admirable, but the constant trash talking and self-important ego-stroking is so tiresome. Just shut up and play.

    I thought it was a love fest of much respect after the game. They were hugging each other and giving props, not trash talking.

    My roommate was like, "WTF are they doing???"

    I'm like, dude come on, Pop and Spo have both won before. They know how to be good sportsmen, at least for the minute or two they need to be in each other's presence. I liked that this series (unlike Heat/Bulls, Heat/Pacers) was not very trash-talky.

    Man, if most teams can stay reasonably healthy, next years playoffs are going to be great.

    The West is obviously still stacked...a healthy OKC is probably the favorite, obviously the ageless Spurs, Memphis again especially if they can find another shooter, Golden State with a healthy David Lee, Clippers with a real coach and KG...and maybe Pierce too, the Lakers if Kobe can come back close to his old self, and even Houston if they can add pieces...the western conference playoffs are going to be great.

    Even the East...obviously you have the defending champs, but the Pacers will get Danny Granger back, the Bulls will get DRose and Deng back, the Knicks are still going to be really good and if the Nets grow some heart, they have the potential to be a good team.

    The NBA is in a good place right now...at least it's playoffs. Next year is going to be awesome as long as these teams can stay relatively healthy.

    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.

    How about trading away the 5th overall pick for Mike Miller and Randy Foye...could have picked Ricky Rubio, Steph Curry, DeMar DeRozan, Brandon Jennings, Ty Lawson or Jrue Holliday.

    What a horribly run franchise.

    Eh...so many people were rooting for San Antonio simply because nobody wanted the Heat to win.

    Iagree to a certain extent. It's the fact that the media overhype him and all they talk about when concerning the NBA is Lebron and the heat. It gets annoying after a while

    wouldn't surprise me to see Bosh moved in the off season, if they can find the right deal.

    I don't think that is going to happen because I don't think Bosh would be that much of a big commodity...who would take on $19 million in salary for a guy most don't think is a true "superstar" and capable of leading a team to a championship? I think saying trade Bosh is way easier said than done as I don't think many teams would want to take on his salary as well as the Heat not getting back significant value and also I think the Heat are one of those teams that are almost loyal to a fault to these players.

    Miami's best bet IMHO is to see if they can get a rim protecting big...I personally would take a chance on Greg Oden and just really limit his minutes. He's talking about coming back this year after rehabbing for the last 2 years and obviously, I don't think he's going to make much money and that is the key for Miami as they obviously have no money to spend on any big that's a sure thing.

    Bosh was the hanger on from the start. He was never a banger. He was a perimeter big man, much like Dirk. You don't need him 'as much' when you have two high quality slashers (James and Wade), along with the spot shooters they have.
