Bosh goes boom

Chris Bosh had so many highlight moments in that Game 3 that it's hard to pick a most impressive segment.

It might just have to be his entire fourth quarter, which is a time of game Bosh rarely is dominant. That's normally reserved for LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, known to Carlos Boozer as the Heat's only two great players.

Bosh hit a variety of jump shots, each one, no matter how difficult, looked like it was good from the Bosh 34 second he released them. He was hot, and he knew it.

The back-to-back pick-and-roll plays with Wade were pretty, especially the second one that included a spinning dribble and two-handed dunk.

Then he helped put the game away, essentially, with a tough rebound off a Luol Deng miss, a pair of free throws 16 seconds later, and a blocked shot of a Boozer layup.

It was encouraging to see Bosh have a second 30-point game in this series, and it's probably no coincidence that he's doing it in this series, after Boozer's comments.

Bosh offered mixed messages when asked if that motivates him in this series.

"Not really," he said. "We’ve been through so much in the regular season, that comments don’t really affect me too much. You can find inspiration in all different ways.

"It does nothing but help. I think about it when I’m shooting."

Sooo, he doesn't think about it, except when he's shooting? He just doesn't want to start a war of words. Guaranteed Bosh is highly motivated by that omission. He had two 30-point games all season. Now he has had two in three games. Not a coincidence, not a matchup advantage. Heck, Joakim Noah is one of the best defensive big men in the league.

Wade said Chris has been a different player since he heard of the Boozer comments.

"Any great player is going to respond." Wade said. "I was glad he said that about Chris because he came in with a different focus."

Bosh's performance was particularly big because Wade was far off his game (17 shots for 17 points, four turnovers, three assists) and because LeBron was being a facilitator (10 assists) instead of attacking much. LeBron said that he saw two defenders every time, so he didn't want to force it. And you could tell at the start of the fourth quarter that LeBron was making sure that plays drawn up for Bosh would be executed properly.

Couple nice games from Udonis Haslem and Mario Chalmers, also.Haslem took a big charge, and Chalmers played solid defense on Derrick Rose, who had two FGAs in the fourth quarter.

Huge game from Bosh! Our D was on point.. lebron played like magic today. Need game 3!

Obviously mean, game 4!

The Chicago Altar Boys and Pretty-Haired Boys are so clueless in wandering through the Miami Mataderos. Cattle like Chicago Bulls*it shouldn't be in slaughterhouses. And Chicago boys shouldn't be going up against real men and real superathletes.

Derrick Iverson, er, I mean Derrick Rose, should know that his flower power will protect him from being squashed like the puny midget fly that he is. He actually believes that a 6'2", 190-pound runt will survive the Miami frontcourt????

If he is not lucky, he might come to grief in his own home court on a 4-1 season-ender.

- Same performance by the Heat as in games 1 and 2, except Haslem won't save the day.

Do the math.

- the genius sludge

guess what, sweetie?
i did the math, and each way i crunch the numbers, the result i keep getting is miami 2-1.
interesting huh?

6 more wins and we are the NBA Champs! GO HEAT! Spo, keep up the good work. He is making me eat my words and I'm loving it. Bring on those Mavs...

Boshwhacking the Chicago Cattle requires careful preparation of knives before the disembowelment act, as you don't want cattle running all over you.

Clueless fans still see their Derrick Iverson Rose as their Messiah and the second coming of Jordan. They didn't even bother to count the genuine Olympic gold medalists and NBA champions in the Miami Heat. What???? Rose and Boozer are all they've got for "medalists"????

Boozer should spend all his money on booze as he can't even identify a guy inches away from him who can punch in a 100-proof bottle through his Barkley mouth on the floor every night.

LOL@ David in LA:
VERY interesting!
Who told "sludge" he was allowed to do math?

On a more serious note,
Doc Rivers put it best when he said that he wished people would stop talking trash about the HEAT, stop booing them, etc... because all it was doing was unifying them and making their "skin thick", prepping them for the playoffs.
Doc is a SMART man.
So, let me just pre-thank the sludge's of the world who should get an assist for helping our HEAT this season.
booz-er should also get one. Please keep telling CB he isn't a star, working real well for you so far.....
GO HEAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i wonder what brilliant points of genius will be made by sludge now, finsfansforever?
after all, like i keep reminding everyone, since his knowledge of basketball goes ALL THE WAY back to 2001, we should REALLY pay attention to what the nitwit says..

@ David,
Sludge is my favorite village idiot!

Breaking their will!!!!
Bosh>Boozer!! Once again Bosh drops 30 on Booz and Booz played the best game of his life(playoff)!! I hope you Bulls fans with your polls from Chicago that picked Boozer over Bosh feel like sh*t,I hope you still waiting on Bosh to go 1-18 again!! Kill'em Bosh!!
I predicted Haslem would step up again, not a great rebounding game but timely jumpers in the 2nd half(4-5 shooting) and the usual charge and tuff defense!!
I predicted Chalmers would have a bounce back game and he did, he played with poise and keep his mind in tune with the team!! Need to shoot more mid-range jumpers! Played Rose well down the stretch with help!!
Joel Anthony showed up huge with 5 blocks and rotating on defense!! I was glad to see Anthony active early on the glass!!
Bibby played great defense again and his 2 3's were big time!!!

HEAT in 5!!! Great team win and we are breaking these Bulls down slowly but surely!!! The scary part about this series, Wade hasn't kicked in yet!!
Love my home fan for bashing Barkley sorry ass during the post game show!!! Only in south Florida will you get the post game outside!!! To Barkley and paper plane K Smith, you in Dade Co. them threats will get you f#cked up quick, my advice to y'all would be just do your post game show and live to see another day!!
Is it me or does Barkley and Smith remind me of the Wonder Twins? Barkley the brother who always turns into some water SH*T and Smith the sister, who turns into a animal! These guys are class examples of haters!!!

WERE WAITNG ON YOU SLUDGE, WE KNOW YOUR BRAIN IS LEAKING FLUIDS BECAUSE YOU SURELY HAVE BLOWN A GASKET!!!

BOSH>boozer!!!!!!!

i feel compelled once again to share the infinite wisdom of Jason Shitlock... a man who possesses profound knowledge of professional basketball and decided to prove that to us all recently... he started his recent diatribe with the following opening statement...

'That won’t beat the Bulls.
LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh won’t be enough.'

'Go ahead, celebrate Miami’s 4-1 elimination of the Boston Celtics, get caught up in the hype.'

- Jason Shitlock

Barkley Sucks, Barkley Sucks.....he was hating it.....and I was loving it.....how bout that DRose Sledge, just another poor shooting night? Heat Defense is solid as a rock....and DRose ain't breaking it.....Big 3 = a perfect 10, 6 till the ship....GO HEAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

heat4life73... i almost forgot myself... BIG SHOUTOUT to all you fans at the game... BIG... TNT had to cut it's broadcast short because fatass barkley couldn't even get a word in and was about to get beat down by the crowd... i'm not sure what i enjoyed more... watching Bron SMASH dunk Dorker or watching the entire TNT telecast squirm... it was so entertaining that i watched it off my DVR over and over again until about 3 a.m.... you fans there are the BEST!!!

Ok first off last night was great and I agree with 4life Wade hasn't even had a "Wade type game" for that matter neither has Lebron yet we are up 2-1. Now I have been meaning to ask this and I know it's a little late but I was on vacay. This is in honor of the "Village idiot". Everyone says the Bulls have the deeper and better bench so here is my list and my opinion because unlike others on here no names (cough cough sledge) I form my own and don't just follow the media.

Ranking the benches
PG - Chalmers vs Watson - I give the edge to Chalmers with the fact that he has started more games and in my opinion plays and all around better game.

SG - Miller vs Korver - So far in the playoffs (not this series) Korver has the slight edge but seriously this is all Miller if he doesn't break both thumbs this would be a laugher but even with that he plays better D and rebounds better. Once his shot starts falling it's over.

SF - James Jones vs Brewer - I call this a wash JJ has better Offense and Brewer is the better defender. Pick your poison.

PF - Haslem vs Gibson - Maybe at the end of there respective careers this will be a wash but right now its not close IMO. UD is the more consistent player.

C - Big Z or Magloire vs Asik - This is definitely in favor of Asik. He is just more athletic. The Heat centers are just too slow at this point.

So with my math that is 3-1-1 in favor of the Heat yet for some reason everyone claims that the Bulls bench is by far superior. Am I watching a different bball game??? What is everyone elses take?

As long as the Media keeps on hating they will just fuel the fire and the Heat players will feed off of it.

With all this the Heat still need to make sure there is no lapse in game 3 because they don't want to give the Bulls any momentum. Take game 3 and the series is over.

'What we just saw from the Heat won’t beat the Bulls.'

- Jason Shitlock

'James, Wade and Ch Bo — Bosh no longer deserves full credit, since he's downgraded the Big Three to the Big 2.5 — can’t win four games against a real elite team. The Heat’s best chance to reach the NBA Finals is to pray Atlanta somehow ousts Chicago. Short of that, I’ll take the Bulls in six games in the Eastern Conference finals.'

- Jason Shitlock

If he can disrespect somebody's name then so can we!!! Bosh's game last night was for you Shitlock!

Bosh went HAM!

'The Big 2.5 cannot beat a cohesive, healthy eight-man rotation led by Derrick Rose. No way.'

- Jason Shitlock

We got Wade Co., now we have Lebron Co., and don't forget about West Palm Bosh!! Stand up and make some noise for your Miami HEAT!!!

'The Heat barely knocked off a Celtics team led by a one-armed point guard. Miami needed overtime Monday night and a 10-point, late-game eruption from James on Wednesday night to hold off an injury-riddled and worn Celtics squad.'

- Jason Shitlock

yet they won the series 4-1 and beat Boston AT Boston... but they BARELY knocked them off? this guy is an uglier, fatter, slower, denser in the head version of barkley... if that is even possible...

'We’ve also never seen anything like James, Wade and Bo’s supporting cast. Mario Chalmers, Mike Bibby, Joel Anthony, Juwan Howard, James Jones, Eddie House, Mike Miller, Zydrunas Ilgauskas and coach Erik Spoelstra might be a nine seed in the NCAA tournament.'

- Jason Shitlock

that nine seed just beat your cohesive, healthy eight man rotation as James and Wade took the night off last night... lol... could it have been any sweeter last night Shitlock?

Also just remembered Bitchley, saying during halftime show how Bulls were gonna win because they weathered the storm and that Miami's crowd was nonexistent!! Well guess what, we EXISTED on your bitch a$$!!! Keep hating!!!!!!!

#TEAM HEAT!!!!!!!!!

'They remind me of the inept, skeleton crew of muscle Avon and Slim Charles sent at Marlo, Chris and Snoop in season three of “The Wire.”'

- Jason Shitlock

this guy should know a LOT about inept... but two other things... one, who would actually watch The Wire? ...two, then who would admit that?

Not mention of how low our turnovers numbers have been!! Before the playoffs we seem to average 16 turnovers a game but now we have few turnovers and the 4th quarter have been flawless!!! Defense!!! We have the BEST!!!! WE ALREADY WON!!!!!

99-85 win at Home? I'm still FAR from impressed.

As I said, Chicago had a more normal offensive game, shooting above 40%, etc.

As I said, Chicago would again out-rebounf the Heat: This time: 13 offensive rebounds against 5. Yes FIVE. 28/27 defensive rebounds.

41-32 on the boards for the Bulls.

Ru-Paul Bosh got hot at home, that's all.

I still expect the Bulls to steal game 4 now.

Charles Bitchley... i like that...

'I’ve never once doubted James’ or Wade’s individual or collective brilliance. My problem with the Heat has always been the support, the bench.'

- Jason Shitlock

your problem with the Heat now will be that they are making you look the full arse-hole that you are...

'Wednesday night, six Heat players not named LeBron, Dwyane or Ch took the court, and they contributed 4-of-21 shooting, 16 points, 10 rebounds and two assists. In Game 4, the non-Big 2.5 contributed 7-of-16 shooting, 15 points, 10 rebounds and three assists.'

- Jason Shitlock

and last night Wade and James took the night off with 17 and 22 scoring nights respectively... so basically, the two supreme players in the league can take the night off... and still win? but how can that be Shitlock?


'I’ve never once doubted James’ or Wade’s individual or collective brilliance. My problem with the Heat has always been the support, the bench.'"

OF COURSE, undoubtedly one of THE worst benches in the entire NBA this season. Look it up. The stats are clear.

But the guy forgot to mention the other 2 HUGE flaws on this Heat team. Putrid "point guards", Putrid "centers", by all NBA standards. This is a 2 1/2 men team, with very little help. Clearly. They are still very good, of course. But that's the fact.


“Just passing,” he said. “I told you every pick-and-roll they were doubling me. So just got to find a way to sometimes beat it. I’ve been trying to beat it with the pass. Try to be more aggressive.”

Through three games, the league MVP is where the Heat wants him:

Thinking rather than reacting.

And on his heels.”

As I wrote many times before, That’s all Miami had to do: double or triple Rose. He really doesn’t have any other great players to help him out, Offensively, that is. I still expect the Bulls to come back on game 4 and steal the game on the road. Especially because of the rebounding. Again, they outrebounded Miami, 27-5 offensive boards. If Rose plays a little better, and Bosh doesn’t have the game of his Life again, Chicago wins game 4.

Still, the Heat should win this series. Unless Korver and others start helping Rose offensively. Can't wait for a final series against Dallas

@037Cane
You should try reading Shitlock's tweets...

"it ain't over. I woke up this AM and I still like the Bulls"

then look what he says about the next game on tues.
"6-minute mark first quarter Thibs unveils this lineup: Rose, Deng, Gibson, Boozer, Noah. Gibson plays 28-30 minutes Tuesday. #serieschanger"

These national guys have just picked a side and made up their minds no matter what they see. #itsover

'Rondo’s ineffectiveness and the closeness of Games 4 and 5 speak to how unimpressive the Heat were in dispatching the Celtics.'

- Jason Shitlock

he failed to explain the ineffectiveness of healty Allen, Pierce and Garnett... what a hump if crap this guy is... and i don't even know anything about basketball... hey Shitlock... you know less than me! Now THAT... is unimpressive.

13-5 offensive boards, that is.

I'm now convinced Sledge is paid by the Herald to piss people off and create more traffic on this blog...why else would someone be such and a$$hole day after day??

You count bench points as if they really mean something! How many teams have guys on the bench who should start? How many teams have better players sit just so they can get points with a second unit? Why aren't Lebron minutes considered bench points when he's out there with the second team? TALK ABOUT STARTER POINTS!!!!

Sludge you was right! Bull's did win the boards, shoot better than 61% from the ft line, and didn't go 3-20 behind the arc!!! Still add up to a LOSS!!!! You gonna be the reason Google start charging for searches!! You running out of sh*t!!!!! You to funny!!!

Wrong, I do it for free, just to piss off some Homer retards as yourself. Fun times!

Heatup... i wouldn't follow that twits tweets if he know where the fountain of youth was...

Sludge=20ish,no girlfriend, stay with mom and dad, don't work,if he's not blogging he's BEATING, and was last picked for any team(if he even played sports)! Talks like his knowledge comes from NBA Live or some video game!!!

@Sledge In your 10 years of basketball knowledge did you gain any math knowledge??? Of course they are going to have more off rebounds they shoot a low percentage from the field. Therefore more opportunities to get an offensive board. It is simple math so stop stating the obvious. How about talking on the facts that Miami has shot no less than 47% from the field in the series so far against the number one defense and by some opinions (Barkely) the best ever. Can you explain that???

Or as you state that Bosh will not have a game of his life again (I am pretty sure he scored 30 and had 12 rebs in game 1) but you don't mention that Wade and Lebron have yet to have great games (which if I am not mistaken happens regularly). Or you don't bring up the fact that Boozer had a career day as well (are we to believe that is common place) which is only the 2nd time in the entire playoffs he has done so.

How about talking on the fact that nobody from Miami has gone off behind the 3pt line like Deng and Rose did in game 1? Are we to believe that won't happen??? I can keep going if you like because I actually do have bball knowledge dating back further than ten years and involving more that just sitting on the couch.

'James and Wade, impressive. The Heat, not so much. The Heat capitalized on Boston’s injuries — Rondo, Shaq’s calf, Jermaine O’Neal’s back — and old legs.'

- Jason Shitlock

i can only laugh at this... on a stupid scale of 1-10, 1 being the smartest and 10 being the stupidest this ranks a 100... the O'Neals being hurt is the reason the Heat did so well? ...really?

You think you piss me off?? It fuels me to prove you wrong!! just like Bosh dropped his nuts on Boozer last night, me and my fellow heat pride make you eat your own feces daily...you are the A$$HOLE of this blog, wear it proud buddy.

Its the same reason I follow Jason Shitlock, the negativity fuels me to want it even more.

really Shitlock...? ...the O'Neals? ...i just had to amaze at that statement again...

i just want to get a SHOUT OUT to the fans that attended that game again last night... you guys are AWESOME!!! that TNT post game broadcast shut down will go down in history as one of the greatest events in Heat history... hey Bitchley, you tub of lard... hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha... i LOVED every minute of it!

'Derrick Rose is going to chew up Bibby and Chalmers. Spoelstra is going to end up putting Wade on Rose and sitting his point guards. And that’s going to put a drain on Wade’s offensive effectiveness and potentially lead to foul trouble.'

- Jason Shitlock

the only thing getting drained is the fecal extrament that has been building up inside your head since birth... or in your case since your mother's abortion!

'Fatigue, a lack of playmaking from Rondo and frustration prevented the Celtics from finishing the fourth quarters with any efficiency or consistency. Chicago won’t have that problem.'

- Jason Shitlock

exactly what problem is Chicago having in the fourth quarter then?

'If the game is close late — and these games will be — Rose, Luol Deng, Kyle Korver and Chicago’s bigs will make the necessary plays at both ends. Ch Bo won’t make a heroic tip-in over Joakim Noah at crunch time. Most important, Rose’s constant penetration is going to force the refs to give Chicago the same calls James and Wade get in the paint. Don’t look for Miami to enjoy a 40-plus free-throw disparity in the Eastern Conference finals.'


- Jason Shitlock

loved that Kyle Dorker play last night where Bron SMASHED the ball into the rim at the same time he was smashing Dorker to the ground AND getting one... that play can ONLY exemplify the above statment, right Shitlock?

'That’s how the Heat looked after finishing Boston. They turned the Boston series into a personal NBA Finals. They spent too much emotional capital on getting past a broken team. You can go to that emotional well only so many times.'

- Jason Shitlock

this is the pinnacle of this man's genius... he is right... but they are beating Chicago without even going to the emotional well... so while Boston was a hurdle the Bullshyts are merely a speed bump and not even really that, huh?

'Chicago-Miami. Can’t wait!!!'

- Jason Shitlock

Dallas-Miami review... can't wait!

meant Dallas-Miami PREview... can't wait?

For this blogs amusement here are some of the "Village Idiots" aka Sledge's posts from this series.

“AND Ru-Paul is not going to have great games every night, not nearly as good as game 1. So Lebron might shoot 10-15 next, as wade, but then Bosh, Mr Houdini, will throw one of his classic stinkers, and disappear, as he often does.” He was dead on with this one!!! haha

“The only way Miami could beat this Chicago team is with superhuman performances from Wade and Lebron, and Bosh. Not only that, they would need help from that putrid bench, and some 3pt shots.” With this one too!!!

“And counting on Haslem to save the Heat is just sad. Don't you think that if he hasn't played it's because he's still dead meat? he might contribute: Next season.” Great call here Mr. 10 year genius!!!

“If Miami loses game 2, it's over. In 5, game 7 in chicago wouldn't even be necessary. Game 2 is the biggest game in Bron's and Ru-Paul's careers, by far. And nothing seems to indicate that Chicago won't win game 2, at home. Lebron won't play as bad, Bosh won't play as good. Same difference. Chicago will defend, control the boards, kill Miami's despicable bench, and then shoot some 3's.” You hit it out the park with this one!!!

Keep them coming Sledge. I enjoy the amusement. I think you also stated that Korver is one of the best 3-pt shooters of all time. When does that start happening???

lol Tired... that is great stuff there... thank you for sharing that with us... i absolutely LOVE this 'Us versus The World' anthem... reminds me of the Canes run of the '80's/'90's...

once again the Heat pride on this blog makes Sledge shovel his own feces into his mouth and force him to eat it...EAT IT superdiva.

lol at these stupid Homer kiddos. What's the average mental age on this blog, 11?

My Take:

1) Bosh is a legit star...why wouldn't he be able to do this every night? He's been consistent for the Heat also, averaging 19 ppg...I'm bewildered by everyone saying he won't do it the next night or the next night and he quietly does.

2) Hating keeps occuring of course - DRose 'mvp?' will be unstoppable - what?!? If DRose is going to be so unstoppable, then if Miami has two players better than DRose, then why aren't they going to be unstoppable times two? If Miami had a 3rd super star - who's also more efficient than Rose, then why wouldn't they be unstoppable?

3) Commentators keep hating but I love how Chris Webber said: It's time for all the haters to give Miami props, including myself, while looking at Barkley as Barkley had just made another excuse for the Bulls. I'm feeling Webber for admitting he was hating and admitting the heat are proving him wrong.

4) Sledge buddy, with Miami being so close, there's NO WAY, Chicago wins this series with Wade and Lebron knowing they are this close to getting to the finals. I think Chicago knows that too.

5) Thanks for Bogans and Gibson for being idiots and trash talking...Don't they know how Wade plays when he gets mad? And Gibson and Boozer calling out Bosh - they need to call out themselves. Bosh has battled and/or outplayed KG, Boozer, Gibson, Brand, etc. He's taken the hard road to ECF...who has Chicgo played?

LET'S GO HEAT!

As I've written since day 1, I expected Miami to beat the Bulls, for the specific reasons I've pointed out. Boston was another story, they lost their best player and their centers.

I'd love to see a rematch of the 2006 finals against Dallas. Totally different teams this year. But I'd also like to see chicago beat Miami now on game 4, on the road, which is quite possible, if they keep destroying the Heat on the offensive glass. just to see the reaction on these childish Homer boards, going from autistic bravado to serious concern. The Heat homers would of course start blaming Spo and the officials again, pondering their Fears, after the series is 2-2, with home court asvantage back to Chicago.

Could happen, probably will happen. We'll see. Every game has been extremely close, except game 1, when Chicago BLEW OUT the Heat, easily. Can't wait.

energy_bust... Miami feeds off of the hate... we must somehow ensure that the beast keeps getting fed... i don't forsee that being a problem...

Miami Heat is big pimping Chicago right now...

@Sledge
Your quote from after game 1
"So, no excuses here. If Miami doesn\’t steal game 2, by some miracle, they are TOAST. It’s not like their gonna win game 7 in Chicago. Unless Chicago loses Rose and Noah to injury (as Boston did), I wouldn’t bet a dime on the Heat right now. Yes, I changed my mind, so sue me."

Then from today
"As I've written since day 1, I expected Miami to beat the Bulls, for the specific reasons I've pointed out. Boston was another story, they lost their best player and their centers."

So maybe ON day 1 you had the Heat but not SINCE day 1. You change sides more than Lady Gaga. So obviously 50% of the time you are correct. Who wouldnt be???

Difference between Miami and Chicago? You contain Rose, they don't have another reliable option for offensive firepower. Wade was contained yesterday, Lebron didn't have his best game, then Bosh steps up. That's Boston was dangerous before they lost their best player and centers. Same gooes for Dallas: Nowitzki was finally contained last game against the Thunder. Others stepped up. Dallas should be a much tougher challenge than Chicago.

Sledge you've been exposed as a fraud...eat feedback martha focker!

"lol at these stupid Homer kiddos. What's the average mental age on this blog, 11?"

Mr Bandwagon, That would still make us older than you.

you're not angering any of us, sludge.
you know nothing about the game. a rebound disparity is not enough to win a game, especially if our shooting percentage is that much greater.
still not impressed? who cares? it was a 14 point win against the #1 seeded team in the east.
your ignorance is amusing..

Difference between Miami and Chicago? You contain Rose, they don't have another reliable option for offensive firepower. Wade was contained yesterday, Lebron didn't have his best game, then Bosh steps up. That's Boston was dangerous before they lost their best player and centers. Same gooes for Dallas: Nowitzki was finally contained last game against the Thunder. Others stepped up. Dallas should be a much tougher challenge than Chicago.

Is this the best you can come up with after 10 years of watching NBA? Dallas will be tougher than Chicago? Wow! Smart! You, in an earlier blog said that Chicago would be tougher than Boston.
By the way, Lebron had a great game. He played tough D and distributed the ball. Bosh did well because of Lebron.

Bunch of juvenile, irascible Heat Homers. All I can say is: LOL.

And, btw, since you seem to be looking from every word I've written here for weeks, try and READ appropriately and in due CONTEXT of the post. If you must go back to school to polish up on those elementary reading skills, so be it. Make your mommies proud.

For instance: I said Chicago would be tougher than Boston, in the end, AFTER (reads a-f-t-e-r-) they lost their best player, and even then had to barely win most games, including OT.

So, Heat homer Kiddos, instead of cutting and pasting certain lines I wrote weeks ago, out of context, (I did say Miami had to steal game 2, didn't I, little moron?) why don't you just get a new brain see if you can process the information slightly more accurately in the future.

And again, I like Chicago's chances on game 4, for reasons i've already explained ad nauseum. Heat in 6, though. And yes, be very scared: I might be wrong! dumbasssess..

....barely win most games.....

CAN EASILY BE EQUATED TO

.....closing out close games.....

Chicago will lose because Shaq got hurt in February.

All of these games have been very close. Including the sweep in the regular season. Only exception? Game 1, when Chicago Blew Out Miami, easily. I like the Bulls chances on game 4, to regain home court adv. They just rebound better, all they need to do is nail a couple more 3’s. Then again, since Miami is the hungrier team, they’ll probably win it in 6, at home. If it goes for a game 7 in Chicago, I wouldn’t bet a dime on the result.

the only moron on here is YOU, sweetie slige.
you haven't written anything that panned out.. no one cares about impressing you or winning by 20 point margins. that for video games, obviously your sepecialty.
since WE have been watching this game longer than you've been a stain in your father's underwear, just sit back and learn something..

I was wrong: average mental age on this blog is 10 y/o.

including YOU, dear, yes..
and by the way, jason whitlock posted on his twitter page that he's looking for an intern; minimum wage job. i'd follow up on that slayge; you could move out of the house, you guys both hate miami, etc..
should be a perfect fit.. :)

and one more thing for you to "process"..
chicago is DONE.

Miami was leading Chicago mid-way through the third quarter of game 1 before getting beat. Blowout - yes, at the end it was. But this wasn't a thorough spanking from start to finish. It didn't leave any lingering affects on how to beat the Heat....any questions - see Games 2 and 3.

Gotta love the intrinsic, basketball arguments these Blind Juvenile Heat Homers (BJHH's) have to offer: NONE.

Absolutely NOTHING to back up the claims, just pounding their homer chests, like retarded gorillas. Zero material about the game itself, stats, game observations, plausible considerations including the strengths and weakness of either team, any semblance of an intelligent, balanced analysis of the sport: ZILCH.

It's like talking to my 10 y/o nephew, except he's a lot smarter.

And of course, on these blogs, these retarded kiddos simply resort to personal attacks, ad hominem 90% of the time. Since they can't refute an argument, or even when they think they can, it boils down to attacking a guy they don't even know. Of course, in person, I would beat the crap out of them if they used those words, but i do understand we're dealing with retarded infants here. Go Homers!

You've been WRONG on ALL of your analysis...its been shown to you time and again, and somehow we are 10y/o??

Stats...the only stats you use are the ones skewed toward your argument.

game observations...way off every single game as Dwade, Lebron and NOW Bosh have made you look foolish over and over again.

Plausible considerations...now this one cracks me up. Nothing you have considered about this team is plausible.

Strengths and weaknesses...all you do is point out weaknesses in the Heat, never the other team.

your analysis is crap, worse than Barkley if it can get that bad.
My advice...just leave this blog because obviously you can't get a single person to agree with your perspective...NOBODY, so why come here if all you get is abused??

Heatup: you're a waste of time. Obviously, you simply cannot READ, (example, I'm tired of mentioning the Heat's Strengths , as well as the weaknesses) , but you just can't READ. I'm afraid you're severely retarded. READ, son.

Sludge used to be a lot smarter, as a matter of fact, he would have won most of the arguements on this blog, if Shaq and Jermaine O'Neal didn't get hurt.

If, and, but, maybes.....could of, should of, would of......

Miami will lose this series unless they beat the Bulls in Games 4, 5, 6, or 7.

Sludge, with premonitions like this, how can we be sure you weren't that fool that predicted the rapture was going to happen on Saturday?

Sludge is trying his best to save his sh*ty face!! He try to use big words and the when we smash his theories, he claims we are taking his words outta of contexts! Unbelievable!!! You in a HEAT blog and expect to hear us taking sides with the other team??? Do me this favor, go to Bulls blog and type the stuff you type here and they too well tell you, you know nothing about basketball!! Rose might as well have one arm!! Your girlfriend, Noah, yea he dominated our centers with his 1 point outburst!! You will be doubting the HEAT all the way to the end but when it's over you will say you was a HEAT fan all along, just playing devil's advocate!!

Sledge=Barkley

Sludge works for the papers, he job is to keep the blogs jumping with people! Think about it, no real Bulls fan won't show up unless they were winning! I think sludge is that chick from sportsnation, both hate HEAT the same!!! Dumb blonde is on tv justice to keep males watching, But is ugly as hell! She's on Bosh but won't mention Boozer!!

Ok. My bad. Average mental blog age: 9.

Sludge: you are a waste of sperm. Throwing around the word "retarded" proves it.

8?

If/when Chicago steals game 4, these blogs will get more interesting. Oh the fear and the panic!!

"Bunch of juvenile, irascible Heat Homers. All I can say is: LOL.

And, btw, since you seem to be looking from every word I've written here for weeks, try and READ appropriately and in due CONTEXT of the post. If you must go back to school to polish up on those elementary reading skills, so be it. Make your mommies proud.

For instance: I said Chicago would be tougher than Boston, in the end, AFTER (reads a-f-t-e-r-) they lost their best player, and even then had to barely win most games, including OT.

So, Heat homer Kiddos, instead of cutting and pasting certain lines I wrote weeks ago, out of context, (I did say Miami had to steal game 2, didn't I, little moron?) why don't you just get a new brain see if you can process the information slightly more accurately in the future.

And again, I like Chicago's chances on game 4, for reasons i've already explained ad nauseum. Heat in 6, though. And yes, be very scared: I might be wrong! dumbasssess.."

Since I feel this was directed at me let me be nice and respond.
1. I find it amusing that you call me (us) juvenile yet in the same post you resort to name calling. Am I the only one that sees the irony in that???
2. You say I took your comments out of context yet I copied and pasted full paragraphs. I was not the one pasted a comment about the bulls being better that the celtics but regardless you did and if you would like I can go back and find it. (I am enjoying this entertainment today)
3.On that subject of the Celtics since you won't let it go. You state that the Heat BARELY won MOST games after the almighty Rondo went down. Not sure what school you went to but most would mean above 50% and since the Heat won the first two easily (yes they were up by double digits for MOST of the game) and the next two wins were close that would not be the definition of MOST and to add last time I checked a 10 pt win is not close but hey I am not as knowledgeable as you!!!
4.So the Bulls will most likely win game 4 and then the Heat will win the next two??? This is what you are saying yet previously (I can go copy and paste it if you like) you wrote that the Bulls had homecourt adv because they earned it and for us Heat homers to stop crying and now you are saying it won't matter because the Heat will win game 5 on their court??? Your consistency is definitely mind boggling!!!

Would you like to continue??? How about you keep saying that we have no insight and are complete homers and know nothing yet you continue to read and post on this blog. Wouldn't that be the definition of moron???

"Good session today. Guys were really keyed in on the mistakes from yesterday and we're trying to correct them for next game. That's what it's all about, staying positive and trying to learn every single day"

"Tired" you should know that don't read your crap. Not past the 1st line. Keep that shyt shorter next time.

You just like the man who predicted the end of the world, somebody was listen to his garbage too, he was proven wrong and now what????? I guess he had to kill himself???? Sludge today is the death of you, I will no longer acknowledge you, you're a waste of time and effort!!!

TODAY SLUDGE DIED!!!!!!! I'm happy to report the news to you guys!!!!!! TODAY SLUDGE DIED!!!!!!!

Heat in 6!!!!! the winds are blowing in favor of south beach yea baby!!!!!!

Game 4 is crucial, obviously. 2-2 compared to 3-1, home court on the line. Just thought I'd remind you, tards.

@Sledge

I already stated that game 4 was crucial. In my best Sludge impersonation "READ above!!!"

Was that short enough for you???


including YOU, dear, yes..
and by the way, jason whitlock posted on his twitter page that he's looking for an intern; minimum wage job. i'd follow up on that slayge; you could move out of the house, you guys both hate miami, etc..
should be a perfect fit.. :)

David... the person which you mention in this post will no longer be known by that name... that abortion does not deserve to keep his name to us... he will from now be known as Jason Shitlock... or Jason Twit-lock... which do you prefer?

If Chicago wins game 4, game 5 is even more crucial than game 4, yet not as crucial as game 6, and not even close to a definitive game 7. If such chain of events were to unfold.

Now think about that for a week, or longer if necessary. Then don't reply.

"Game 4 is crucial, obviously. 2-2 compared to 3-1, home court on the line. Just thought I'd remind you, tards."

"If Chicago wins game 4, game 5 is even more crucial than game 4, yet not as crucial as game 6, and not even close to a definitive game 7. If such chain of events were to unfold."

More words of wisdom from Capt Obvious. Does thinking make your head hurt?


You can copy and paste!! Proud of you!

No way, sledge got beaten to death by a retaded kid...i'm gona miss using him as toilet paper...

Heat in 6...face OKC in the finals

You can copy and paste!! Proud of you!

More than you can do, kiddo!

So Sledge let me get this right. IF the Heat win 4 games before the Bulls do then the Heat are conference champs but if the Bulls win 4 before the Heat then they win??? How about IF one team wins all their games by 2 pts but the other wins by 20 pts BUT the 2pt winning team gets to 4 first??? This math is really confusing could you please enlightne me some more? Plus I am not sure if I understand the crucial statement. Does that mean some wins are not really important? Do the Bulls not have to win games to win the Eastern Conference??? I really need your 10 years of bball knowledge on this one!!!
