Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

Might be a stupid question but what is Spo's reasoning for being so quiet about Bosh?

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

I think Bosh is back by the Finals. Think about a month is on the higher range of how long this kind of injury lasts without a setback.

Stupid answer to stupid question, lol: Mebbe Bosh could come back at some point this series, but Coach Spo wants him to continue to rest cuz the Cs are pushovers but he doesn't want to let the Cs know that he is disrespecting them like that?

What's the upside to being informative about Bosh?

The way he's been reluctant to discuss the Bosh injury has been strange. I guess there's no upside but we usually have a better sense of how an athlete is recovering.

Meh, Spo just taking his cues from hockey. Be thankful you know more than that it's just an upper body injury

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

u mean the metro?

that's a badddd part of town.

i used to take the metro from gov't center to omni station near south beach, and on the other side of US-1 near bayside about 5 mins from AA center is some pretty ****ing awful neighborhoods. (outskirts of liberty city).

that offramp where the guy got his face eaten is about 2 mins from the omni station stop, and is ~5-10 mins walk from liberty city, and AA alike.

it's also where Ultra festival is held every year haha.

we also used to play football games against gwen cherry and ghoulds, along w/ liberty city. liberty city was always the worst. one year a kid got shot in the arm leaving a game w/ his dad (one of the coaches)

Have fun rooting for Ls the next 3 seasons for long pong ball equity.
"Over" might be a stretch. In championship shape? No. But given injuries to Ray Allen and Paul Pierce, season-ending injuries to Avery Bradley, season-ending medical issues for Jeff Green and Chad Wilcox, and likely end of the line for Jermaine LOL'neal, making the Conference Finals this year was a ****ing miracle, and makes you wonder if it could have turned out differently. Greg Stiemsma and Ryan Hollins are the 4th and 5th options at Center, not the 2nd or 3rd, and Steamboat has been downright impressive at times. Jeff Green is not exactly a great player, but he'd be a hell of a lot better than Keyon Dooling, Sasha Pavlovic, or Marquis Daniels.

Given they're getting a decent amount of cap space next year and have the opportunity to re-sign KG for a better price, their prospects aren't quite as dire as I might have believed at the beginning of the season. I expected a first round exit this year. Everything else has been extra credit. Look, the Heat are considered the favorites in the East every year until they prove otherwise, so it's just a wait and see matter. But Boston isn't quite destined for lottery status yet.

Especially considering that we are run by a competent FO as opposed to lol Dumars.

We'll be rooting for ping pong balls at some point before long, but it's not like having them hit is our only out to return to relevance.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

Not to mention, getting the great picks isn't exactly a guarantee of return to relevance. Just ask the Blazers. Or my own beloved Sactown Kings, who have probably the most incompetent owners and FO in the league.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

indiana is better the c's even when healthy , they barely got by the sixers ..the c's are only getting older and rondo has what 2 years left on the roster ,probably better to trade him . the only reason the c's made it this far is because d.rose got injured ..they might have one run left to get bounced in the first or second round next year with this core .

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

Ray's been shooting since 11AM this morning. Hopefully he can step up and knock down some shots..Celtics will need it. Win or lose, I just hope the officials let them play. Bull**** techs have no place in a conference finals.

I'm hoping Doc is ready to make adjustments. Throw in Sasha or Quis if Ray struggles. Play zone if we start getting in trouble score-wise. Do not play Ryan Hollins ever. And please, get Pierce going.
