Amazeballs

Gary Neal had the game of his life.  Lebron, did not.  Since the heat were wearing their red jerseys, there were times I was wondering if Lebron was looking around trying to find Anderson Varajeao and Mo Williams.  I also wondered if maybe Tony Parker got caught having sex with Lebron's mom, because that's how the boy looked.

Look it's one game.  But as Doug Collins said this morning on Mike and Mike, ain't no way Michael is letting that happen.  At one point I thought Lebron was going to do the same thing, at the end of the third quarter he had 9 straight points, and I thought maybe he was going to MJ his way back into the game, and then it's like he just lost interest.

I always liked Jeff Van Gundy.  Dude is hilarious.  Made a comment last night about now, in the NBA if you're a coach and you win, you still get fired. Vinny, Hollins, Furious George all led their teams to franchise record wins last season, and all got let go.  Granted, other than George, the other two just didn't have their contracts renewed, and George only had one year left.  But JVG made a good point, when did the NBA become a ruthless NFL like league in regards to their coaches?

Ever wonder if these Cuban defectors like Puig don't realize that what they're doing is a big deal.  Like if there are tons of guys playing in Cuba hitting HRs like every 4 at bats, so they're used to it.  Or if they see such better pitching in the Cuban league that it's like moving down to AAA when they get to MLB?  Of course I say that, and in a month, pitchers will have found the hole in Puig's swing and he'll be hitting .205 with 84 k's. 

ESPN was doing a poll of the top 10 best 1-2 punch (hitters) in MLB right now.  Guys like Pujols/Hamilton or Prince/Miggy...etc.  You know who didn't even make the top 10?  Cargo/Tulo.  They're only 2nd and 3rd in the NL in HRs, Tulo leads the NL in avg, and they're both tied for 3rd in the NL in RsBI.  Rockies get no love.

i hate when the announcers/talking heads say shit like this. Bulls got beat by the Sonics by 21 in 1996 Finals. The whole "Mike would have never let that happen" BS has got to stop.

Sometimes even Mike had bad games and sometimes even Mike's team got blown out in the finals.

they didn't, you're making stuff up

he didn't lose by 36, so I guess he didn't let that happen

"Rockies get no love."

Mile High bias. Anything they do offensively is immediately disregarded because they play at Coors Field.

"he didn't lose by 36, so I guess he didn't let that happen"

LeBron would have never let his team lose by 21 in the finals.

tem said...

LeBron would have never let Kevin Duckworth get 11 rebounds in one game. NEVER.

tem said...

LeBron would have never let Pippen outscore him. NEVER.

tem said...

LeBron would have put Meiz's airconditioner in all by himself.

El Padrino said...

make no mistake the Spurs are the better team, they should win the series

but to your point, the heat have "the best player in the world" according to some people

one guy who can control the series a la MJ

so it evens out, but if he doesnt show up or just puts up pedestrian numbers his team will lose and he will be chastised all off-season long

El Padrino said...

that is just the standard now for him it isnt really a MJ comparasion it's the fact that - i feel like when his team is struggling everyone in the building is expecting him to carry them but he just doesnt like he passes to mario chalmers or they settle for a chris bosh 18 footer

its a little mind boggling, last night pop installed a plan to defend his post up game so he needed to hit jumpers to open the driving lane and he just was off so from there it sort of snowballed but i get the feeling he isnt in this mentally like he should be i dont know, cant put my finger on it maybe the pacers really grinded him out shoudnt be though he is built like a war vessel

what a phenomenon he is, i mean he is like the Riddler, just an Enigma

Meeez said...

Since when is Yadi not leading the NL in BA?

El Padrino said...

when the knicks struggle to score Melo just keeps the ball and shoots 30 times sometimes he catches fire and carries them to a win sometimes he bricks and they lose by 25

but melo KNOWS when he needs to take over

seems like lebron doesnt quite know when or HOW to take over

El Padrino said...

"Since when is Yadi not leading the NL in BA?"

i hate him and his stupid fat spic family

Meeez said...

"i dont even look at bills, i assume they are high we run three window ac units in the summer, 2 all night but we do a deal with con ed to pay a fixed rate each month over the course of the year so on for winter months when it's cheap we pay a higher amount that is leftover from summer bills"

So you do the thing where you give the utility company an interest free loan.

BLUE said...

I don't know, I don't follow Yadi

but I know that .353 for Tulo is higher than .351 for Yadi...that's math

BLUE said...

"seems like lebron doesnt quite know when or HOW to take over"

he did it just fine with the Cavs...remember the playoff game where he scored 30 some odd straight points for the Cavs?

And I thought that was going to happen last night, end of the 3rd quarter he was starting to take over, and then it's like he forgot

Meeez said...

"LeBron would have put Meiz's airconditioner in all by himself."

Yes! I'd be willing to pay somebody to install this behemoth.

El Padrino said...

"So you do the thing where you give the utility company an interest free loan."

yes, it is convienvient for me so both parties win, i aint paying interest on the loan they provide to me in august

win win

El Padrino said...

"he did it just fine with the Cavs...remember the playoff game where he scored 30 some odd straight points for the Cavs?"

yup he had a few of these performances already which makes it more confusing

Meeez said...

"seems like lebron doesnt quite know when or HOW to take over"

He sure knew last year. But yeah, way too timid. How do these slight bodied clownshoes like Manu get to the cup with so much ease when Bron seemingly can't? And Spo's defensive sets/alignment are absolute trash. Just horrible.

tem said...

"seems like lebron doesnt quite know when or HOW to take over"

he knows on the Cavs.

he doesn't quite know on the Heat.

Big 3 isn't a perfect system...when it comes time to take over who takes over? The obvious answer to all of us is Lebron...but to Wade the answer isn't so obvious. And then Wade bitches and moans about it and then Lebron doesn't take over as much.

Kobe did the same stuff this year with Howard. He stepped back for some games because Howard was bitching.

Meeez said...

And Bosh needs to GET ON THE FUCKING BLOCK.

tem said...

a bitchy coworker fucks everything up.

tem said...

And Bosh needs to GET ON THE FUCKING BENCH.*


*fixed

Meeez said...

Fair enough

tem said...

Bosh is too soft for the NBA finals. He gets pushed around down there.

Birdman does better down there than Bosh does. Birdman doesn't get pushed around as easy.

tem said...

Bosh is a great regular season guy, but come playoff time when the games get tougher he shrinks.

There are tons of players like that. He is in that bucket. Once you get to the conference finals the only way he does well is if his outside shot is going down.

i dont think this is it, i think Wade is almost finished i mean he is really broken down right now he shows flashes but i think he knows he is second banana and has already come to terms with it

i mean its not like lebron defers to wade, he passes to the likes of haslem/chalmers/mike miller

well check on miller he has been great so far

tem said...

Heat should play zone.

El Padrino said...

popovich is so good, best counter puncher in the coaching game

you are getting great offense from Mike Miller Mr. Spolestra so to offset that I will attack him with Ginobli on the pick and roll.

impact NEGATED

fair points. i think wade/bosh whining is a sizable part though because after game 6 of the conference finals they were both in the media bitching about not getting the ball. that has to just royally piss off LeBron. enough to the point where he passes the ball.

at least then he can say "hey i passed the fucking ball, don't blame me if you didn't get it. i wasn't scoring 28 straight, even though i could, i was passing it around, it just didn't get to do, go blame miller, he's only like 10 for 10 from behind the arc, he should have passed it to you and your 0.75 knees."

El Padrino said...

lol, valid points asswell

So can guys on the Nuggets smoke nuggets with no penalty now? Because I'd imagine Denver is going to become an NBA destination.

BLUE said...

"So can guys on the Nuggets smoke nuggets with no penalty now? "

no, it's against the NBA's drug policy

Meeez said...

I remember when pot wasn't a banned substance in the NBA

I was just talking to someone and he was giving me a plate # and one of the letters was F. I didn't catch what he said, so I asked him to repeat the letter. He said "F. F as in folly".

"99% of people don't use the phonetic alphabet"

We can't be sure that's an accurate number.

True. It might be 100%. In the year and a half I've been here, I can honestly say that not 1 person has used foxtrot when talking to me

El Padrino said...

"El Pad, how is soppressata?"

OMG delicioso

my personal favorite salumi

El Padrino said...

"99% of people don't use the phonetic alphabet"

use it everyday in financial world, mistakes cost money

various security identifiers carry letters in the characters and other things of that nature

Meeez said...

"OMG delicioso

"Made a comment last night about now, in the NBA if you're a coach and you win, you still get fired."

If a coach wins Coach of the Year, he won't be coaching that team inside of 4 years. Unless you're Gregg Popovich. George Karl didn't even last a month.
