Re: NBA Discussion Thread

This isn't me being bias, it's me being realistic. I can't see the Heat winning a championship. They have ZERO identity and were getting out hustled until the Knicks went cold in the fourth. Plus they don't have a 2nd rotation. When you have players like Turiaf & Battier, you should play them. It's stupid to me.

Re: NBA Discussion Thread

Getting outhustled is an issue you can easily fix. They had some terrible transition defense in the first half but it was solid in the second and I think getting outhustled by Tyson Chandler happens to just about everybody. The guy is a workhorse. And I'm sure Heat are gonna pick their intensity up a notch in the playoffs. I'm not sure they even cared about this game THAT much to be honest.

As for their bench, 2nd rotation isn't that relevant in the playoffs. Teams shorten them up (8 man rotation usually) and a team like Miami that is so top heavy shouldn't need to rely on their bench anyway. That would be kinda sad. How much talent do you possibly need to win?

Re: NBA Discussion Thread

I don't think the Heat will win the title, not because of the reasons you stated but because they just don't have the killer instinct.

Re: NBA Discussion Thread

Honestly, I know Dirk is a great jumpshooter and all but when you have you have a guard on a switch, there's no need to not post him up and drive to the rim. You'll force a double team and end up swinging the ball for a good shot. Terrible decision.

EDIT: Great pass from Gasol to Bynum. Nice high/low feed.

Dallas' spacing on the floor is awesome.

Another fadeaway over Sessions by Dirk. And it was all air.

Re: NBA Discussion Thread

No Pierce, KG, or Allen tonight against the Bobcats.

That means the rookies some PT tonight, which means: E'Twaun Moore.




Why doesn't Ebanks get regular PT (As in, when Kobe's not injured)?

Clearly more than they have.

Not really. They're more talented now than they were last year and lack of talent wasn't the reason they lost last year.

It's all about mental make up with this team and how the stars will perform in the playoffs.

Both of those are easily-debatable opinions.

We can debate all day what the reason(s) was/were why they lost last year. The fact(s) is/are many things are different. The question then becomes if it's an improvement or a downgrade. which may have yet to be seen.

Re: NBA Discussion Thread

Wade and Bosh both played better last year than they have this year.

Anyway, Charles Barkley is saying that the NBA will rig the draft lottery this year and give the Nets the #1 pick.
