I tripled lettered. TRIPLE. EVERY YEAR. Wudda had four, but I got the athletic scholarship in a sport my HIGH SCHOOL DIDN'T HAVE.

What does that mean?

DO I HAVE TO SAY IT LOUDER?

Let's see these haters put some money up.

Hey if Lebron can get 40 points 20 assists and 32 blocks, I think this going to be a rough one for Indiana.

I am leaving or falling asleep in 12 minutes, so place your bets!!!!!!

I think he's trying to validate his opinions by the fact that he played some sports in high school. The problem is, the world is full of people who play sports but still know little about sports. Heck, just look at the NBA.

I played football and basketball in high school, and basketball in college. I also coached a Middle School basketball team to a 15-0 season and the Middle School state championship. But that doesn't mean that my opinions are always right.

Not sure what your point is. MJ is obviously not management material. Probably wouldn't be a good coach either. Again, great coaches don't have to be great athletes, and great athletes don't necessarily make great coaches.

Miami doing exactly what they need to do. Aggressively going to the basket and Hibbert already in foul trouble.

I love Hibbert, but I have to say that he sure plays soft sometimes. He also needs to learn how to catch the ball!

The Heat still floppin' all over the place. The play like... (I won't say it. Don't want to get into trouble with the PC police like Hibbert did.)

Pacers getting dominated on the offensive boards. No way to win like that. And really no excuse for it either.

So as a new NBA fan, for whom do I root here? Both options seem pretty self-evidently terrible. Not unlike the last two Super Bowls. Is this just a general trend with championship games?

I don't bet. I think gambling is a sin (more fuel for your mockery  ;) )

The Heat won easily. I turned the game off early in the 4th quarter. Pacers failed to do what I said they needed to do, and the Heat did exactly what I said they needed to do. Not that it was hard to figure out.

Hibbert has to toughen up. I talk about the Heat being soft, but Hibbert plays soft too at times. He has to learn to catch the ball first. But when he catches it in the paint he should pivot and take it strong to the rim. Stop all this finger roll crap. Just dunk it or go the line for two free throws. He failed to play consistently strong in every game, and that was the difference. Hibbert should really be getting about 25 points a game and 15 rebounds a game. No excuse for him not to have at least 15 boards every night.

The Heat still don't have my respect. I never thought I'd see a team flop worse than Duke, but the Heat may have surpassed even the Dukies. Weak stuff, weak stuff. A man the size of Lebron should be ashamed of himself for acting like that. Jordan sure as heck never flopped like that.

Hope that the Spurs and Heat is a good series. I'll obviously be pulling for the Spurs. But I think the Heat match up much better against them.

It's interesting how Duane Wade's knee is always hurt when he plays poorly. He says he never knows when his knee's gonna bother him or not. Very convenient. And BTW, if his knee is injured so badly, then why is whining about wanting more shots? And his knee never seems to bother him when he's trying on all of his zoot suits.

[redacted pointless pontificating]

It ain't gambling if you know what you are talking about.

Let's be clear. All the empty talk surrounding the Presidential election wasn't backed by a dime, well one person ponied up (pardon the dig) and he welshed.

And in this thread, you seem so certain, yet you won't actually put your money where your mouth is.

If you engage in our economy driven by speculation you are doing nothing different than purchasing outcomes of sporting events.

In short, I don't shoot my mouth off without willing to show for it in some manner.

Most here do, hence the pointless and almost always incorrect talk around here.

I was able to predict both the total score of the game and the spread between the two teams accurately enough to beat most other humans out there who go out of their to actually invest money into their speculation on sporting events.

Stick to self-serving repetitious meditations about your inability to save babies. You don't know sports.

Keep floppin' Miami. Keep floppin'.

This series is just too funny. Even if the Heat do win it all, they have drastically underachieved with the way they have played. I've said it before and I'll say it again: The Heat are soft as South Beach!


Selam
Oy! :( You and your lack of perspective. The 1992 Chicago Bulls team that won 67 regular season games the year after winning their first ever NBA title and is considered by at least one source to be the best of the six NBA champion Bulls teams--yes, even better than the team that went 72-10... They needed a full 7 games to beat the Knicks in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. One thing this year's "underachieving" Heat team has in common with that great Jordan led Bulls team: The Heat have yet to lose consecutive games in this year's playoffs.

No matter who you're cheering for, it's been a great series (unless you support P'burgh), especially last night's thriller!!  I'd prefer the Pens to win, but it doesn't really matter so much--I just love watching hockey!!  If  Boston wins, I'll be cheering for them, not Chicago.

Chicago has history, which i like, but the most annoying fan girls ever, possibly matched by the ones who cheer for the Pens. Most likely ill be cheering for the Bruins to win the cup, mainly because of the guys at Days of Y'Orr( www.daysofyorr.com ), who do an AMAZING job.

Also, if my teams(Sabres and Leafs), are out, i cheer for canadian teams and the original six, so, Boston fits that bill

Almost forgot, even though I despise what he did to Miller, Milan Lucic is a Serb, and Orthodox, so he has that going for him too.

Almost forgot, even though I despise what he did to Miller, Milan Lucic is a Serb, and Orthodox, so he has that going for him too.

Pro teams I like and watch--

Hockey: P'Burgh and Boston (but I'll watch just about anyone)

Football: Redskins and Steelers

Baseball: Nats and O's and Pirates and Red Sox (no particular order)

Basketball:  Pro basketball sucks ;D (I know, this goes in the "Unpopular opinions" thread, but...too bad 8).)

Soccer: Boring



Myself, I cheer for(the real teams i cheer for, not ones i cheer for once my teams get out, haha)

Hockey: Sabres, Leafs. I pay attention to the Oilers, but, Im not a real fan because my loyalties are taken up. Also, in the AHL the Toronto Marlies and the Rochester Amerks(Americans)

Football: Bills, Ravens(even though I dont pay a lot of attention to it, i still throw it on when i get back from church)

Baseball: Pirates, Nationals. I would cheer for, and kind of do, for the Blue Jays, i just cant get into AL ball, even with their affilation with my Buffalo Bisons.

Basketball: Toronto Raptors(im still getting into the sport)

Soccer: l'Olympique de Marseille

Rugby: DHL Western Province/Stormers, and the South Africa Springboks.

Lacrosse: Buffalo Bandits(normally a fun time, but,

Basketball:

Let me guess...you're Canadian  ;D.

Bruins, that was an AMAZING win. one more win, the onto the cup, where i will most likely be cheering against you, haha.

No matter who you're cheering for, it's been a great series (unless you support P'burgh), especially last night's thriller!!  I'd prefer the Pens to win, but it doesn't really matter so much--I just love watching hockey!!  If  Boston wins, I'll be cheering for them, not Chicago.

I really haven't looked at the infos; my work hours and schedule have been ridiculous. And beyond my own comprehension I actually got into an internet argument about Hitler.

The only person I know who has actually played against Lebron and beat him in a championship and who has a lot of love for the game and San Antonio in particular and not so much for Lebron or much of the Heat, likes the Heat in five. He's been talking the series to me the last few days.

Really, I know nothing about sports as Gebre pointed out, but I am going to go wild here say, the new year, same as the old year. The biggest threat the Heat faced are behind them, although this time it will be the younger team which will have flummoxed them and the older, more experienced and much, much better coached team which they will roll over.

I defer to my buddy, the Heat in 5, but if I got the right odds, I would jump at 4.

I really have to figure out how to turn my TV into TV in about 30 minutes and settle some beverage situations.

At least they lost playing a basketball team.

Great job on them.

They are spending 10 minutes deciding the game at the moment. The Heat deserve to lose regardless.

Game one to the Spurs. Fun game to watch. I've never seen anyone get as many hollow triple doubles as Lebron does. But if he wants to gather stats rather than posting up and playing like a man, I'll sit back and take that all day long.

Dennis Rodman says LeBron James would be "average" if he played in the 1990s, and insists James' Miami Heat would be no match for his old Chicago Bulls team.


"It's really not a comparison. If LeBron was playing in the late '80s and early '90s, he would be just an average player," Rodman said Friday on "The Dan Patrick Show." "To do what Michael has done ... what he did was more charisma, there was more articulating and stuff like that. LeBron is more like ... there's no flash to his game. He's a great player, don't get me wrong, he's a hell of player, I'll give him that. But to me Scottie (Pippen) and Michael are probably the two best one-two punches I've ever seen."

"I'm just sick and tired of people comparing (James) to Michael Jordan," Rodman said. "It's a whole different era, man." (well no crap)

"LeBron came into the age of the game at a perfect time. Michael came into the game when back then you could hit people, knock him down, shoot a free throw and get back up," Rodman said. "And LeBron can't do that. All they do today is (complain) about a foul. All they do is (complain)."

"It would be no contest. The Heat has better talent than we had, but we had smarter players," Rodman said. "That's the only thing we had, smarter players. ... I would take Bosh out of his damn game easy. That's not even a problem. And how would Dwyane Wade match up with Scottie Pippen? Really? And Scottie Pippen would guard LeBron easy. And how are you going to cover those two guys (Jordan and Pippen)?"

Rodman: Jordan trumps LeBron
