A ring for LeBron would silence the haters for sure, since there's no doubt this is HIS team and HIS drive that's gotten them here. But it still remains to be seen if he can get there. Celtics will give them a battle on Saturday, and my money is still on OKC.
a ring would silence them. but not a ring*, which is all he can win this yr. c's shoulda won this in 5 were it not for g2 (never forgot) and stern is ldo creaming himself over the okc v heat rivalry

Unfortunately true, since no one remembers how 2-3 of Kobe's rings should be rings*.

Clicked on the thread when I saw Bank had posted, curious to see if he had switched back from an OKC av to a Heat avatar. Awesome.

I can't believe C's fans are still trotting this out. Again, the C's won Game 4 by 2 in OT after super-human LeBron James was taken out of that game on 3 absolutely bogus calls with Boston having about a +4 edge on other whistles. You can't say "well, if they fixed the officiating the game that benefited Miami, but didn't fix it on the one that benefited us, we would have won". That's just sour grapes. The series is 3-3. With perfect officiating, it would still be 3-3. You should put your hopes into a miracle in Game 7, not trying to make up an "asterisk" for when the Heat beat you.

15 for 35 from the field isn't particularly bad, especially when seven of them are threes.

It's pretty pointless to engage homers on ref-related issues (any homers, not just Celtics-flavored ones).

especially when you only turn the ball over once... he still averaged more than a point per possession

I can't believe you're actually arguing that the officiating is even in this series. Miami is still the better team, but this is just a pathetic point to try and make and hilarious that you keep a plus/minus of bad calls.

If there was perfect officiating, what would the score of the series be right now? If you have anything other than 3-3, please explain which games you think would have been won by which teams. If you do think it would be 3-3, then please explain how the officiating is relevant.

I don't keep an actual plus/minus, that would be too tilting, but I do have a general idea in my head of who benefited the most from the calls, and about how many calls that is.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

I don't get why everyone says Lebron will finally silence his critics if he wins a championship. I think at this point, most of his "haters" dislike him for his douchey demeanor off the court rather than anything he does on it. No criticism of his game really holds that much water.

I'm sure winning a ring will give him immense personal satisfaction, and his fans and Heat fans will be happy, but his "haters," myself included, will go right on disliking him. I do think it would be really funny to see him get really close every year but continue to fail ala Karl Malone, though.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

I think when people talk about LeBron silencing the critics, they're talking more about the media types who try to act like LeBron has some giant personality defect that keeps him from being able to win than they are the standard haters who don't like that LeBron's so much better than anyone on their team.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

The media narrative is 'can't win the big one'. Which is lazy given the success he's had in previous playoff games, but it won't go away until he rings. It reminds me of the narrative of Payton Manning until he rang'd (minus the vitriol).

That was a pretty damn impressive performance tonight by Lebron.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

I might be able to stomach skip bayless tomorrow, probably not as I am sure it was wades batman performance why they won and were so lucky wade was on the team otherwise bron wouldnt have dropped 45 and 15, LOL at 5 assists being abysmal and it is for lebron which should just state his amazing ness.

Skip bayless tomorrow:

"I give dwayne batman wade an A- because he showed up eventually, I give Lebron robin james a D+ for padding his stats for the sake of stats not because he was trying to win. Chris superman Bosh (because he is better than robin but not quite as good as batman) an A because he played. The celtics get an F---- because lebron sucks and they let that bum drop 45/15/5"
