LeBron's legacy and the new look of free agency

LeBron's legacy and the new look of free agency
Once again, the world rallied together and rooted for "Not Miami" in the NBA finals. Not nearly as strongly as when "Not Miami" won in the form of the Dallas Mavericks, but the sentiment was still there. This time, the San Antonio Spurs blew out the Heat. Embarrassed them in three straight wins where Miami looked, slow, unathletic, and lazy...

Derrick Rose did "what everyone else did'' including 5-5 scrimmages

Just a few days after Derrick Rose threw cold water over Bulls nation on the speed of his recovery, he went through a full practice with the team. According to Tom Thibodeau Rose did "what everyone else did" which is good news for Bulls fans...

LeBron's better than Jordan, oh wait, no he's not, but could you imagine!

I thought waking up today that I could turn on sports radio and possibly be safe from Miami sports talk.  Unfortunately, I was wrong.   On my short five minute commute to the train station I flipped on Mike and Mike in the morning just to hear about how the Heat winning the title adds interest to the NBA and how LeBron James might be better than Jordan [FWIW, both Mike's disagreed that he's presently better].    I feel sad, that I may need to write this article for the next five or six years every year...

John Lucas does his Derrick Rose impression in Bulls win over Heat

John Lucas does his Derrick Rose impression in Bulls win over Heat
The best thing about the Bulls victory over the Heat is that there was no choke by Miami. There was no gaffe. There was no holding back. By the end of the game every trick they've tried on Derrick Rose was used on John Lucas; double team 40 feet from the basket, trap on the pick and roll, and even LeBron taking the assignment. The Heat couldn't stop John Lucas who played the best game of his life, and the Bulls went on to win...

Bulls vs Heat 8:30pm on ESPN

Bulls vs Heat 8:30pm on ESPN
The Bulls and Heat renew their rivalry in a late starting game on TNT tonight. The Heat are coming off an overtime loss to the Magic where LeBron James willed the Magic to win with his ineffective fourth quarter and overtime play while the Bulls had a day off in which Rose limped away from film session before getting into a minor car accident. Oh yeah, he was also fined 25k for his thoughts about the refs screwing him over. Cue Daniel Powter...

Rose brilliant until the end as Bulls fall to Heat

Rose brilliant until the end as Bulls fall to Heat
Derrick Rose muffed two free throws with under a minute to play that could have given Chicago their first lead of the game and put all the pressure on Miami. LeBron James followed by missing two of his own, unfortunately the Bulls failed to get the defensive rebound...

Final thoughts on Miami/LeBron/Dirk

So today, I was going to get allergy tested to purchase a new dog [yes, this ties in].   For people with severe pet allergies, there is a breed of dog called the American Hairless Terrier which many find tolerable.   However, the breed is pretty rare, and to test, you basically just play with...

LeBron James folds under pressure

I’ve said for the longest time this is the best player in the NBA by far.  However, LeBron has shown major cases of choking (or quitting which is even worse) at major junctions of his career.   He struggled mightily in the clutch during the playoffs for Cleveland, and now in the biggest stage, when...

Intensifying the search for the ''New Jordan''

Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade has scored 295 points in his first nine NBA Finals games. This is three more points, than Michael Jordan scored over the course of his first nine. An impressive feat, without exception, but it’s already got way more press and media attention than it deserves. Just to put it all... Read more »
