20110607-mike-miller-jason-kiddMike Miller's ninja sneak attack was not as stealthy as he'd anticipated

Better keep this short so you guys can sneak in a nap. The way this series has been going, I fully expect the remaining games to all go quadruple overtime.

(Chris: And for everyone's viewing enjoyment, here's the Apple Daily animated news recap of Game 4!!!!)



Worst of Game 4 in Pictures:

20110607-jason-terryJason Terry likes to do this when he scores -- I like to think this celebration applies to the bedroom as well as the basketball court


20110607-deshawn-stevensonAww, DeShawn just wants a hug


20110607-rick-carlisle"Hey LeBron! Lookin' good out there! Oh, by the way, did you hear Rashard Lewis..."

20110607-lebron"Don't say it..."

20110607-rick-carlisle"...is sleeping with your girlfriend?"

Game 5 of the NBA Finals:
Heat at Mavericks, ABC, 9pm (Series tied 2-2): As you may have noticed from the joke in the pictures above, the latest rumor spreading through Twitterland is that LeBron had a bad game because he found out his girl's been sleeping with Rashard Lewis. (And the rumor was apparently started by Stephen A. Smith. Of course it was. Anybody that can shout as loudly and easily as him is good at spreading rumors.)

That being said, some researchers think they have the real reason the Heat are getting beat: they dont hug and high-five enough, damnit.

Surely this is false...? Delonte last year, now this? Late at nights over here in New Zealand, a sports radio station plays Fox Sports radio and the Steven A Smith show and all those other douchbags who have shows, my god, I've never heard people as irritating. I hate them. HATE! Their ads play soundbytes of their shows for about three minutes at a time. Horrid... Shaaaameful shit.

Does RasHARD live in Miami in the offseason? Is there no code in the NBA? Players flopping like they play in the Italian Serie 'A' (wait, that's Lebron, so maybe he broke the code so others can break it on him too?)... And now players puttin' their dude in another NBA dudes dudette?

"That's some shaaaameful shit"

I'd like to defend my beloved serie A, but unfortunately it's true that we are the kings of flopping (as far as football is concerned,basketball flopping crown belongs to serbia imo, by a small margin). But if we talk about players puttin' their dudes in other players' dudette, well that's premier league stuff...and every social group stuff...shit, even among online gamers that's common practice.

I'm calling it now. Next year if/when the Heat flame out of the playoffs it will be because LeBron will find out that his real dad is Stan Van Gundy.
Dan B- are you saying that JET likes to eat Mexican? You know south of the border.

Turning your television on at the precise moment Brian Cardinal and Wade collide = priceless.

Another Wade "injury", eh? I've seen this script a few times before.

Anonymous Anonymous said...
Wade hurt himself while flopping. I do believe a Lebron Karma tweet would fit in nicely.

I smell the evil scheming hand of Riley in this one. I bet Wade stays in the locker room until they absolutely need him then he makes a Willis Reedesque entrance

Then misses the game winner since he's ice cold.

This'll be good!

Anonymous Anonymous said...
I'll come out and say it: I'm gonna miss Mark Jackson, goofy-ass catchphrases and all. I think he and Van Gundy are a perfect tandem-Van Gundy as the cerebral and whimsical muse to Jackson's cheesy streetwise no nonsense attitude-with both willing to call out the other's bullshit.

Wow - that shot that Jet took with 0:30 left was ... not good.

And it somehow went it.

Wow.

Come on Dallas, just one more win. All I want is to see Tom Haberstroh, Henry Abbott, Ira Winderman, the seemingly retarded guy at my bar, and every "Anonymous" commenter here shit their collective pants when the cHeat lose.

I'm not sure if this qualifies as bawful or just plain hilarious... but NBA TV is showing a recap of the game and after Terry's three on Lebron Kevin Mchale just said "Wap! right in your eye"

I'll try to dig up the clip tomorrow

After watching this game, I finally realized what has been bothering all this time about the Heat.

The team chemistry they have is just so fragile. Much like a relationship with a super hot but crazy girlfriend, when things are going right everything is just simply amazing. But the second one thing goes wrong, everything goes to shit and it's the exact same way with the Heat. They have so much potential when the team is working well (as seen in the 4th where they made those big runs), but once they get one or two turnovers they just go fuck it and let LeBron and Wade do whatever they want.

Re: Apple Daily News - When was Jason Richardson traded to the Heat?!

Anonymous bing said...
I know we judge LeBron on a dif scale to everyone else but how can he be shit (0 points in the 4th) and good (a triple double) in the same game?

I was glad to see the Mavs bench players finally hit those jumpers. They fucked the Lakers sideways with that JJ and the Jet shit, 'bout time the Heat copped a serve of it too.

Anonymous kazam92 said...
Sad to say, but the city of Miami has seemed to effectively turn on LeBron James or is at least one game away from doing so. This guy just keeps fucking his legacy harder and harder.

I miss the 40-45 win Heat teams. I can't handle this anymore.

Anonymous Wouter said...
XForce: those 4th quarter runs you were talking about were still Wade or James saying F it and doing whatever they wanted. I've said it before: they need an offensive minded assistant, someone like the Celtics had with Thibodeau on defense so they can run a structured offense instead of the crap they're pulling now. People like that can't be THAT hard to find. Oh well, waiting for Sunday it is then.

What the fuck is wrong with Lebron? Bad karma is it? Everytime he reaches the finals some female figure close to him gets boned and he sucks. What sort of world Lebron lives it? Lets help lebron get a some stability in his live... poor guy, everyone fucks him indirectly

I asked Lebron for change for a dollar. He gave me 75 cents and said, "Sorry, I don't have a 4th quarter."

@Wouter: I'm not saying that it's Wade and Bron saying fk it, it's the rest of the team's mentality. They basically go into the mindset of "we have Wade and LeBron so I can just stand and watch."

Those 4th quarter runs were indeed Wade and LeBron playing well but they were making the passes to active teammates who actually were doing something useful, instead of standing and watching.

Blogger Preveen said...
As far as ETs theory on Actual Score system, that offensive foul call on LeBron would feature pretty big. Canceled a possible three point play, and Bron's only make in the 4th? That would have tied the game, and put the Heat up if the +1 was made. Would have altered the fouling situation at least.

Oh well, if the bench plays like this at home, at least the chances of winning are still pretty good, Bron or no Bron. Just get someone, anyone, to please box out Chandler, and should be good to go.

Before game 5, LeBron and Wade made fun of Dirk's illness. The whole thing is kind of ironic coming from a guy like Wade.

I've been saying it all along: Dallas hasn't played their best ball yet. They played good ball today, but they can be even better. As well as they shot today, they rebounded like crap (-10 rebounds for the game, MIA with 9orb). Just like in Game 2 where they shot like crap but rebounded well. If they put together a complete game with rebounding AND good shooting, look for another blowout a la game 4 vs. LAL.

Fun Fact: Mavs are UNDEFEATED in the Finals when Brian Cardinal gets minutes! Viva el custodiano!

But the thing is, Dave, the Heat haven't played their best ball either. It happens in flashes, a couple of plays here and there, a couple of possessions at a time, but they haven't put it together either.

Dallas is 3-1 when Cardinal sees playing time. He played 7 seconds during Game 3, which Miami won.

Wow, how LeBron thinks he can make fun of anyone at this point is beyond me. That guy is a total follower.

What a bunch of douchebags.

I don't think Marion's gesture was masturbatory. I think it was a variation of a fist pump. I've made a similar gesture after accomplishing something. Rather than one big pump, it's a series of little ones, almost to encourage one's self. I don't think anyone would pretend to jack off as a form of celebration- doesn't really make sense.
