it happened before with the Spurs in '99 and now it's happened again with the Heat in '12. Don't sweat it, punchline - enjoy your 1.5 titles!And the only reason people ( Lakers FANS) called the Spurs 1999 title an asterisk because the Lakers cry baby head coach Phil Jackson said it was after the Spurs open a can of whoop ass on the Lakers in the 2nd round that year.
oh no. they press is upset and people are mad in cleveland.Well, that doesn't really explain why the was printing scathing articles on Lebron and the Decision when he announced doing the show and the days leading up to it. That's the part you seem to ignore when you try to rationalize all the reaction. It wasn't based on the Cleveland fan reaction. But you have to ignore that fact in to make your argument.
As you can see above, I accidently sent my post before it was finished. As you can see in my completed post as I rewrote it, I that was one expample I was giving on Lebron's overall behavior throughout the entire playooffs.
um, okay man. he told Chalmers not yet.. so now all of a sudden he gets it and he is loved. i think the media forms your opinions for you. lebron was dancing and bouncing on the sideline with a few minutes left. he hadnt won yet then. at what timeframe is it approprate to start celebrating? do you need someone in the media to give you this answer?

lol, you think Pat Riley was saying 'can we party now?' to ellude to the fact the Heat had a learning curve and now finally got it? you honestly believe that? wow. youre funny.Are you this dense? I was pointing out that he understood the criticism. I know he was taking a dig at his critics, my point is, he understood the criticsim. He didn't think the press was jealous of he Heat. He knew why they were criticized before and was basically saying you can't criticize us now because this is an appropriate time. He knows all the criticism for the party before wasn't for something as absurd as jealousy.
The Heat won 16 games in the playoffs alright - unfortunately, it just so happened to have come on the heels of a lockout shortened season, that's all, no big deal - it happened before with the Spurs in '99 and now it's happened again with the Heat in '12. Don't sweat it, punchline - enjoy your 1.5 titles!You do realize the NBA hasnt always had an 82 game season... it's not just the 99 spurs and 12 heat. the boston dynasty teams of the 50s 60s didnt all play 82 games. So asterick about half of those titles. The Minneapolis Lakers won the title in 52, 53, and 54.. but not 82 games.. astericks those as well.
Oh I've acknowledged almost daily my respect for our big three. That has NEVER been my issue. I have them just behind Miami as the best big 3 in b-ball. My issue is with players 4-10. You need surrounding talent to win titles. Sessions helps. We now have 3 great players and 1 good player, an improvement..Fair enough. Besides Sessions, I just so happen to think that a focused Metta World Peace, Steve Blake, Matt Barnes, Andrew Goudelock are also pretty good role players for this team...so, that gets up 8 deep. And, considering Mike Brown will have effectively shortened his bench to nine come playoff time, that just leaves Hill, Murphy or McBob to fill that last spot. Again, all in all, I like what we got, and I'm not sure how any other team is so decidedly ahead of us depth-wise.See Replies · In Reply To... · Reply · Permalink
