    I've already implied he's having a down year, so with that being said, coming back from back surgery and having to share the ball with Kobe and Gasol and averaging 16 and 13 in a down year...right, what a scrub. o_O
    LOL stacked...oh wait, let me guess, Rashard Lewis was a superstar to you, because he's another inefficient chucker. No DW, a team that was stacked well was the 02 Kings...remember them? You know team that you couldn't beat without Stern?

    No one will take on Boozers contract, except the rumour for Bargnani from Toronto, which is an equally bad contract.

    So I'm pretty sure the Nuggets' streak is more impressive than the Heat's... they're actually beating good teams unlike Miami.

    Yeah. A 13 ws in the West is definitely > 22 in the East. Heat are still struggling vs the bad teams they've been playing, too.


    And I saw that game winner after accidentally turning ESPN on for more than 10 seconds. pretty sure they had that and his stupid generic Ray Lewis dance he did afterward looped to playback every 20 seconds.

    So he actually hit a game winner. Well, after 10 years of always missing them I guess this shows us.


    He still wont ever hit a buzzer beating game winner more than 10 times in his career. Not even layups.

    ESPN truly has no shame.

    So I heard the Heat were down 27 to the Cavaliers. Which is hilarious. Then I heard they came back to win.

    What'd I know was going to be happening on ESPN?... Yep.

    So I turn it on- didn't even have to wait. Of course they're hyping Miami's win like they just cured cancer.

    Do they once mention how they continue to struggle against awful teams? Nope. Instead they start comparing them to the best teams of all time.

    Humorous to say the least.

    the delay of game from the scoreboard spill got the heat out of the mood to play. i seriously heard that on ESPN.

    I swear, the NBA just sucks right now. You've got the cHeat, OKC, and San Antonio and then a bunch of teams missing their superstars (Boston, Chicago) and then... I guess the Nuggets, but I kind of doubt they'll make any noise in the playoffs.

    A shame things lined up like this for LeQuit. Comparing the cHeat to the greatest teams of all time is idiotic though. If this was the 90s the cHeat would be an average team at best.

    And when the cHeat beat the Cavs (though IIRC there was a bad call that helped the cHeat escape) the Cavs were missing their two best players (Irving and Waiters). I mean really, how hard is it to dominate a team in rebuild mode that's missing its two best players?

    Howard is awful, regardless of what his stats say. Watch him "play".

    And that Orlando team was stacked. They had a great team. Bench depth and all.

    And yes. I remember the Kings that the NBA robbed. Much like the OKC Thunder team the NBA did the same thing to last year.
