The Houston Rockets are fools for signing Jeremy Lin

Jeremy Lin

I hate to rain on anyone’s parade, but this is what America has become today. After over 200-plus years of work, this is what America has accepted. Rewarding mediocrity is something that ruins sports franchises, businesses and America. [Read more…]

The Selfishness of Miami’s Chris Bosh

Chris Bosh

As pumped about Game 1 as I was, I was more excited for Game 2. I was happy that the Oklahoma City Thunder won Game 1 and had a chance to take a commanding 2-0 lead down to Miami for Game 3. Well, my excitement last all of three minutes. Before I knew it, Oklahoma City was down 16-2, then 18-2, then 25-8! At the end of the first quarter, the Thunder was down 27-15.  [Read more…]

NBA Playoffs: Refs giving Miami ‘stars’ all (well most) of the calls

LeBron James

I don’t like to put anything on anyone or anything in particular, especially if that any one or thing has no business in deciding the outcome of a basketball game, but I think now everyone has the right to speculate on what is really going on between the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics. [Read more…]

Boston Celtics vs. Miami Heat: everything you need to know

LeBron James and Paul Pierce

Well, here is the Miami Heat for the second year in a row: the Eastern Conference Finals. All of us know how last year ended for the Heat: a 4-2 NBA Finals loss to Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks. Last year, the Heat beat the Boston Celtics in the second round of the NBA playoffs, 4-1. But it’s a new year and, probably, the last time the Boston’s “Big Three + Rondo” will ever be together. So what are we to expect from these two teams with a trip to the NBA Finals on the line? Let’s take a look.

Miami Heat panicking? Cancel practice, media session, Wade vs. Spoelstra (video)

Last night the Indiana Pacers treated the Miami Heat like Wall Street/the U.S. Government treats anyone who opposes Goldman Sachs- total obliteration. Indiana put on the whooping stick as the Heat trailed by as many as 21. Today, the fallout continues, as the Heat cancelled their media session and practice.

It’s circling the wagons time, as the presumptive favorite to win the NBA title, especially so after the Chicago Bulls utterly collapsed following the catastrophic injury to Derrick Rose, struggle massively. It’s only a 2-1 deficit, but they’ve lost home court and those who win game 3 win the series 82% of the time.

And now you have coach Erik Spoelstra and star player Dwanye Wade at each other’s throats. Watch the video below

Indiana Pacers proving they’re elite, take 2-1 series lead over Miami Heat

They say small-market NBA teams who can’t attract superstars have to build slowly and economically.

Knowing that makes Indiana Pacers President Larry Bird’s being named 2011-12 NBA Executive of the Year that much sweeter — in many ways, it’s representative of the job he’s done over a span of four years leading up to what his team did Thursday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

The Pacers thrashed the glitzy, superstar-laden Miami Heat 94-75 to take a 2-1 lead in the teams’ Eastern Conference Semifinal series.

And it was Bird’s blue-collar boys — particularly center Roy Hibbert (19 points and a career-high 18 rebounds Thursday) — that collectively have outshined the Heat’s superstars in this series.
