If Cs win, everyone is gonna lol heat and whatever, failing to realize how dominant Boston was post-All Star break. Despite the injuries, they have played frickin' fantastic here.

Iggy can sort by w/l and whatever, but this team straight up came to play in this series.

Easy to root for C's as a Laker fan (in this series) a) I don't want LeBron to win... ever. 2) I want a team with actual heart to win (Boston) 3) if Thunder win the finals, Lakers will have either won it all, or lost to the eventual champs 5 of the last 5 years. and d) lolebron

Without thinking about it too much, I don't mind Spo not playing Bosh in the final x mins. His defense had been really bad while he did play. KG was abusing him (which would've happened even if Bosh was healthy)

Boston just took it man. Played much better down the stretch, and have been the better team these last 4 games.

Miami's transition D was even worse than I realized last night. What Rondo told Doris Burke? It happened, repeatedly, and it cost them.
Not to pile on LeBron here, but I counted three times last night where LeBron didn't get a call (deservedly so) and rather than hurry to get back, he completely stopped, and turned his back to the play to bark at the refs, and each time Boston got a score at the other end. It actually happened 4x, but Boston missed out on the other chance.

I didn't count the times Wade did it, and Boston scored, but he was definitely guilty of this as well.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

Man, I'll never forget the moment that LeBron signed with the Heat- thought that the entire league was ****ed and that they would style on everyone. A little piece of me died because the C's were coming off such a great run in 2010, and I felt that a brick wall had been assembled to preclude that from ever happening again esp with the aging and whatnot.

If you had told me in that moment in time that they'd be up 3-2 against Miami in the mother****ing 2012 ECF I would have assumed that they like traded for HGH or CP3 or something. And then if you told me that their biggest addition to the 2010 roster was Brandon Bass I would have faded to all eternity.

This is just so awesome that we have a chance to pull this off, feels surreal. This team has been the gift that keeps giving.

my boy and TZ legend AcesMcGee makes a great observation on his Cs blog Rhymes with Hondo: the Cs are just more dialed in. KG picked up a very tough (read: bad) foul when wade tangled feet with labron and fell down on the switch. He didn't ***** once. He walked down to the other end and played D.

Meanwhile, the Heat were preoccupied with officials (by far the best officiated game in the series) and giving up transition buckets they normally don't. Off of makes no less. And they were disjointed on offense and stopped running sets.

Cs are just focusing on basketball.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

I loved when Wade went for the put back and fell to the ground then proceeded to throw a mini-tantrum while Haslem got fouled and was getting 2 shots.

The amount of self-centeredness is astonishing. Like him with a wide smile after missing the game winning shot on game 4. It all just seems to revolve around himself.

It actually confused the heck out of me when I saw Haslem at the line.

Wade was having a hissy fit and slapping the court with both hands.

this. loved wade ever since he had that triple double in the final four at marquette, but my opinion of him has gone wayyy downhill the last couple years. easily my least favorite player in the league and don't really see how anyone could root for the guy at this point.

I've always been a sort of disbeliever (not 100%, but mostly) in all of the clutch/choke/etc drama, but it's starting to become very apparent that this stuff is way real just watching how these two teams carry themselves in late + close situations. LeBron looks visibly shook and the other Heat are so bad they may as well be, whereas the C's just look completely and utterly professional.

Loved how Rondo was scrapping for loose balls + easy buckets in the last few mins, love how Pierce rained that 3. You can tell he's not a choker by his response to the postgame question "Were you going 3 all the way?" His response was something along the lines of "Hard to say, it's instinctual. LeBron took a step back and the shot clock was running down, all I wanted was the best possible shot and I think that was it." (i.e. he's playing in the moment and relying on instincts while LeBron is way up in his head)

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

I've been rooting for the Heat to title this year. I think Lebron is a special player who gets a whole lot of undeserved hate and I wanted to see him finally shut everyone up.

But you know what? **** this team. A bunch of heartless, gutless, choking slinkers who back into a corner once they face a team with actual balls. **** you Wade with your bad knees and your horse**** jump shot. **** you Mike Miller, you no talent ****bag. And **** you too Lebron for proving everyone right about your lack of heart. I've defended you every time somebody's talked **** about you IRL, and now you show your true colors. You are a straight up loser.

Last night I felt like a Soviet spectator druing the Balboa-Drago fight, starting to pull for the Celtics, who I hate. Cs need to put this crew of droopy vaginas out of their misery, and Lebron James needs to ****ing retire.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

been tellin u guys basketball is music basketball is jazz for years. the stats can make some a lot of money during the regular season when the warriors play the kings but anatta trust his eye come playoff time and its been documented here. look at okc, they were too immature last year, but now they have grown up. look at rondo. he was hurt but he was also going into a shell at the littlest thing. last night he kept shootn and being aggressive. so what if it didnt fall. he kept his head in the game and those "50/50" balls arent luck and that tap out for the trey that was larry bird. when bird was a rookie c's went from last place to best record in nba. same team. no parrish no mchale. just bird . u gotta ask why. why anatta had pistons over lakers here. why anatta get exact games last year dallas wcf and finals. and every playoff in between. why he get mad at u guys when u tell him all teh ***** c's kg and pp and how they gonna get raped.

I think Wade is much worse. This is his team right?

I noticed during the final minute last night that during a time out, Wade was on the end of the huddle not even paying attention when Spo was drawing up a play. LaBron was front and center engaged w/ what was going on.

Welcome aboard.

The troof shall set you free. LeBron's loser personality has infected Waids, Battiaids and even Rio (Chalmers: clutchest member of the Heat) into thinking they're all kings and should get every call. Nothing but a bunch of whiny bitches. Legler and Barry have both (since game 5 ended) called them all out for being frontrunners. Saying they pose and stare ppl down after dunks and highlight plays all regular season, now all they do is ***** and complain, like bitches and complainers.

Spoiler:


And as TuT has stated (and is right) game 6 will be the most rigged game ever, in favor of Miami.
