    I agree stern definitely has a heat bias and the Heat are terrible for the NBA. But anyone who thinks game 6 was a product of corrupt officiating is an idiot.

    Spurs had it won, in fact, they had a 99% chance to win when they were up 5 with ~30 seconds left. The only questionable call after that was Ginobili not getting a foul call but that was after the spurs already had a chance to put it away.

    If Manu or Kawhi make their free throws, the spurs win the championship. Don't blame the refs for San Antonio choking

    Yep. He will drop off in a few years here, and then everyone will see the difference between him and MJ.


    And I hope Cleveland doesn't take him back. That would be awful. Can you imagine how much ESPN and the media would suck his dick if he did that? I think the better story would be Cleveland winning it all without him, maybe even going through the cHeat in the playoffs to do so. Though that isn't going to happen for awhile (though they should be pretty good in the near future, they've got a great cast of young players right now).

    Better story and reality are rarely the same thing

    Manu also immediately played for the whistle and might have gotten that call if he didn't tuck it like a running back and take a billion steps before the foul.

    I'm extremely surprised he hasn't had a knee injury so far.

    It's very rare for people his size with speed to not go down with one. And the day that happens- he'll be a race horse, basically.

    If he ever loses his ability to charge the lane- he's worthless.

    6'8" 260lbs with a post game can shoot mid range and threes? Ad plays great defense? Worthless? You're crazy man.

    If he could actually shoot, you'd have me there.

    That's hilarious. He was 5/10 shooting 3s in game 7. 38% for the season. 50% FG overall also. It's hilarious how everyone talks about "great athlete not basketball player". Dude is a top 5 defender. Maybe best passer in the league. Can shoot jumpers and post up back to basket. Not a great baller though? Whatever haters. My only beef is him flopping and b**ching like a chump after every play bc he wanted a foul. But everyone does that because it works.

    He was shooting well because the defense was sagging off in hoping to take the lane away, they were guarding Wade the same way. His post game is ok, nothing special....Boris Diaw was shutting him down in stretches.

    Saying he isn't a great baller would be ridiculous, but he is great mainly due to his athleticism...but hey, 10 years in the league and he hasn't shown any signs of decline yet.
