Good thing for the Spurs the A/C "broke" in game one or they would be down. 0-2

How did I know this was going to be posted?  Sigh.  You do know they only lost by 2, right?  It's not like they were dominated.

Re: Spurs Heat 


I'll give the Heat credit. They made the plays down the stretch to win the game. The Spurs did not. I thought it was a decently played game but the lack of execution down the stretch is why the Spurs lost. Got to give credit to the Heat for playing strong defense but most of the loss is squarely on missed free throws. Hit the free throws and this series is 2-0 in the Spurs favor. JMO.

Now the series has started. The scene shifts to South Beach and the Heat will have the chance to maintain home court advantage. The Spurs were the best road team in the NBA this year so it's not out of the question for them to go to Miami and get a split. Who knows, they might even shock the world and win both in Miami. Not likely but possible.

They won game 1 by 15 points

Do you honestly think a cramped up Lebron playing 4 more minutes swings a 15 point game?

This series is gonna be a slug fest just like last year.  Two very evenly matched teams.  It's just the one whose shots are falling at the end is going to win each game.

The score was either tied or they were up by two when he went out, and he was having a great game at that point with had 25 pts, 6 rebounds, 3 ast and 3 steals in those 25 mins shooting exceptionally well. As soon as he left, the Spurs go on a 10-4 run, 13-6 run, with Danny Green scoring 11 of the points. Now LeBron wasn't guarding him mostly, but the man who was, had to move over to guard Parker and then he went off.

Considering that Green scored 13 points the ENTIRE game, and 11 came in the 4 minutes after LeBron left (and Wade had to move off him) that it's more than fair to question what the outcome would have been had LeBron played the whole game.

Yep, if Lebron wasn't such a puss it would be a fair question to ask.

Yes I do just look at the score when he went out. Look at game 2 Lebron was the difference, not sure if you noticed or not but hes pretty good.

Maybe but it just typical of the pussification of the American athlete. Take California Chrome, back in the day a Citation would have simply spit on a cut on his foot, not an easy task for a horse really, then rolled in the dirt and  gone on to win the Belmont. 

It used to be so different. Remember that Monday Night NFL game when teamates scrambled to find Joe Theisman's leg after his big hit?  The trainer taped it back on and Joe lead his team to vistory. I can still see the image of him fending off LT with his detached leg as he threw the game winning pass to Art Monk in the last seconds of that game. We were men in those days.     

We had a toughness that still can be found in some of us today.For example last night at halftime I realized I was out of cheese doodles. It had been a very intense first half and when I got up off the recliner I felt a cramp coming into my hamstring. I considered calling to my wife to get the snack but a man finishes what he starts. Gritting my teeth I made my way to the kitchen got those snacks and took preventative measures to stay hydrated in the second half with 2 Bud Lights and I put salt around the glass just to be sure. In my day we were taught to be both tough and smart.

I'd rant some more but I'm getting soooo sleepy. Also I may be coming up with Carpal Tunnel, Got to pace myself. I may need to write some nasty tweets about James after game 3.

Re: Spurs Heat 


I love what the Spurs are all about and thought they would win the NBA Championship until a couple of weeks ago. LeBron, the Puss, changed my mind. He seemed determined to win and as he is the best player on the planet, so I shifted towards the Heat.

Very interesting Game 3. Spurs lose, the pressure is really on, though a loss and win in Game 4 puts them right back on track. The Spurs are old, especially their key players. LeBron on Tony Parker really limits him as well. Time for Pop to come up with a new wrinkle.

I have been a critic of Chris Bosh, but he is playing very well of late. And what about Rashard Lewis?!? ....I remember him as a young player in Seattle, but he is been a HUGE plus for the Heat. Ray Allen, too.

I wouldn't be totally shocked if Pop put 2 point guards on the floor at the same time. I can see him at least thinking about starting Mills and Parker which would force Lebron to choose who he's going to guard. It might hurt them on the defensive side of the ball but it would open things up on offense. Both Mills and Parker are blurs.

Most likely though, he'll just stay the course and harp on ball movement as the key. When the Spurs share the basketball with crisp passes, they're really tough to stop.

My bad, I didn't realize James could make the Spurs miss 6 3 pointers by himself rolleyes

The Spurs got hot and still outplayed 3 other elite (probably HOF)  players down the stretch in Game 1.

Not a bash on Lebron either (in fact I think people who think he's a "puss" because he couldn't play through locked up muscles is ridiculous).

The Spurs are as good or better than the Heat. Even with Lebron on the floor. They should have won the title last year if not for some late game heroics by Ray Allen

Re: Spurs Heat 


is the butterfly effect, basketball is a streaky game and the spurs got hot, maybe lebron has a hand in greens face and he misses that first shot, maybe he gets a steal, maybe the spurs dont draw up a play to take advantage of whoever was on the floor to replace lebron, maybe lebron drives it right down the middle of the lane and dunks on duncan taking back the momentum


maybe the spurs would have still won but you are delusional if you think the game would have played out the exact same way with lebron out there............ there is no way to predict what would have happened

Re: Spurs Heat 


Whatever the case, I can't help but notice the best defender on the Heat left the game, and when did, the rest of the team had to shift over to cover for his absence, and then the Spurs make 10 of their next 12 on shots, where all ten were assisted plays from ball movement. Or we could ignore that the fact that during that time, the Heat made all of four field goals, and was when LeBron came back in for 30 seconds. Are supposed to assume none of that was because he was not in the game.

Now things happen. Injuries happen. It is part of the game. So it is what it is. But to say that his absence had no affect on the outcome, to act as though SA scoring 26 points in the last 7.5 minutes after LeBron left, when they scored 28 total points the rest of the half 16.5 minutes) when both teams were whole is a pure coincidence - especially when the Heat were outscored by 17 in the second half when James was out of the game, and outscored them by 9 when he was in the game in a 15 point total spread - is fairly ridiculous.
