POLL: DID STEAMY CONDITIONS, LEBRON'S CRAMPING COST MIAMI A GAME 1 WIN? VOTE NOW: No air-conditioning = LeBron's cramping and early exit = Heat loss in Game 1 last night? Nothing is that simple. But it seemed like it to me. Click on The Heat Is On for my sweat-soaked column from San Antonio off last night's bizarre Miami loss. (And click on Legacy & Revenge for my earlier column previewing the Finals). Do you think the strange circumstances cost Miami LeBron, the lead and the game? Vote now and say why.

HEAT GAME 1 POSTGAME VIDEO WITH MYSELF AND JOE "GOODY" GOODMAN:

 

FINALS G1: SAN ANTONIO 110, HEAT 95: How thoroughly bizarre! No air-conditioning in the San Antonio arena due to an electrical outage affecting the AC tonight, and it had a direct bearing on the Heat's NBA Finals Game 1 loss. Miami led by seven early in the fourth quarter when the conditions led to LeBron James cramping and having to leave the game. He played only five minutes in the final quarter and sat out the final 3:59 as the Spurs stormed into the lead. Not saying anyone is to blame here or that they should have stopped the game, but the AC fiasco absolutely did affect this result and possibly cost Miami the game. "It sucks in this point in time in the season," James said. "I mean, it's frustration and anger. I lost all the fluids that I was putting in. It was extrenmely hot in the building." Click on The heat is on for my sweat-soaked column from San Antonio, now online. Original post: The NBA hasn't had a three-peat champion since the Lakers in 2000-02 or a Finals rematch since Chicago-Utah in 1997-98, so the best-of-seven commencing tonight in San
1aa1aheatsaAntonio feels special. Feels big. The fact it's considered an even series, or perhaps the Spurs the slightest favorite, adds to the intrigue. So does what lies just beyond for both franchises. Might Tim Duncan retire? Might LeBron James leave in  free agency? (The latter drum won't stop pounding, the latest a pile of LeBron-to-Clippers speculation on ESPN.com). Meantime Duncan's Spurs try to avenge last year's crushing Finals loss to Miami slight -- with what seemed a certain title snatched 1aa1aduncleb 1aa1ag1away on Ray Allen's miracle 3. And LeBron's
Heat try to make a third straight championship parade happen. Beyond those broadest themes the series will turn on how smaller questions are answered. Will Kawhi Leonard's defense limit LeBron? Which team's 3-point sharpshooters will be better? Is Tony Parker fully healthy? Does Dwyane Wade have a big series in him? Can Chris Bosh keep Duncan from layup range? How much will each team get out of Manu Ginobli and Mario Chalmers? So many small answers together will create for somebody four huge wins and one championship. So who wins? We had a big poll (admittedly skewed to Heat fans) and 76 percent of you picked Miami. ESPN experts says it'll be Spurs by a 12-6 vote. My pick: In LeBron I trust. Heat in 6.

Heat Postseason MVP Standings (updated): We name 'Heat 3 Stars' after every playoff game and award points on 3-2-1 basis. Tonight: 1. LeBron James (you saw his value in his absence), 2. Chris Bosh, 3. Dwyane Wade. The standings through 16 playoff games, including Finals Game 1: LeBron James 37 points, Dwyane Wade 24, Chris Bosh 17, Ray Allen 8, Chris Andersen 3, Rashard Lewis 3, Norris Cole 2, James Jones 2.

Poll result: Limited sympathy for ex-NFL players on concussions: We asked and 49.2 percent said former players should quit complaining, versus 23.9% who believe they deserve compensation. The other 26.9% can see both sides or are undecided.

Barring any new injuries to key players, this series should go seven. 82% of the time, the higher seed has won out. Miami can obviously win, but it's going to require something special from them, AND the Spurs are going to need to underperform.

Spurs in 7.

People are overrating the Spurs again. If they didn't win it last year they aren't winning it this year. Heat are more talented a deep team only get you so far. Heat in 6.

Spurs? WTF is that? I have never liked the Spurs I hope they get swept that big doofus retires and they deport the rest of the team back to France.

Fock, Ginnobli, Parker, and the rest of the spooks. Frankly, I'm shocked that they got to the finals. On the very first play of the game I would bring in one of the end of the benchers for the Heat and level that whinny hook nosed piece of garbage.

I hope LeBron and Wade score 50 a piece in every game and at the end of each game walk to the middle of the court where the Spurs logo is located pull down their pants and drop a fresh steamer on the emblem.

Arnold Benedict OC.

Why does it not surprise me that you're rooting against the Heat.

Isn't it obvious Woodcock? He wants the Lakers to be the last 3 peat champion.

All kidding aside, this year it should be easier for the Heat to beat San Antonio. Last year they had trouble in almost every series because Dwayne Wade was a shadow of himself. This year Riley's plan to play him limited minutes so that he could be fresh and healthy for the playoffs has been brilliant. The Spurs don't have an answer for him and they have far less of an Answer for Le Bron.

"The more things change the more they stay the same."

Bye bye San Antone.

Dude, OC has mental issues. "Refugee Syndrome" I think they call it.

"Wassup, OC!"

Where exactly do I say that I'm rooting for the Spurs, Woodcrack?

A tad disingenuous to say that you aren't OC isn't it?

ESPN experts pick Spurs 12-6. That makes no sense. People don't want to see Miami win again it's that simple they are picking with their hearts not their minds.

Spurs have lost 6 in the playoffs. Miami 3. Heat are in overdrive. They win in 6. Difference from last year? A healthy D Wade.

So, what the two of you are suggesting is that one is incapable of expressing a reasonable outcome absent of siding with who is on the winning side of said analysis. By that logic, best hope no one asks either of you who would win, should Russia invade Moldova, less being labeled a communist.

You don't have to answer who you want to win OC you have already irreversibly tipped your hand.

BB, bottom line is that after either the Lakers or Dolphins are out of competition on any given year, my attitude and interest turns very "Rhett Butler'ish." " Frankly my dear..."

The winner of tonight's game wins it all.

You're a Western Conference guy understandably. It's ok. I don't think it's going to require something special for the Heat to win as you say. Just play like they are capable of that is all nothing more. Two time defending champ should always be the favorite.

I get what OC is saying....(& honestly he really does never say he is rooting for Spurs, just that they will win).

Its like I said a couple of days ago...."As much as I hate to say it if Vick & C. Johnson stay healthy the Jets are a playoff team & watch out they dont beat New England for the division"...

I hate the Jets, (despise them really) but logic dictates that they upgraded with those weapons on offense & should have a better team this year..

Bottom Line:

If the Heat play the way they played on Friday night there is not a team on this planet that can beat them..

That being said..

WHEN DOES FOOTBALL START!!!!!

BB, I truly don't care, but if I do I would tend to pull for Miami. First, for the obvious place I grew up, and secondly, for the fact that the organization is comprised of more "ex" Lakers than any other team. Riley, McAdoo, etc.

FZB picked the Spurs. Do you think he's rooting for the Spurs?

FZB also says the Fish will not make the playoffs because of Clueless Joe. In that regard I do believe he will be rooting against the Dolphins to prove his point.

FZB if the Dolphins make the playoffs who gets the credit?

If I did...

Surprising OC if I were a Laker fan I would not want the Heat to duplicate the last 3 peat in the NBA.

The Heat split in San Antonio and win it in 6...

The Spurs are the younger and deeper team, they won more games this year and beat better competition in the playoffs. They should be the favorites, Miami winning would be the upset here

Younger and deeper but more talented? No. Winning more games means nothing.

Where exactly do I say that I'm rooting for the Spurs, Woodcrack?

Right here;

"Barring any new injuries to key players, this series should go seven. 82% of the time, the higher seed has won out. Miami can obviously win, but it's going to require something special from them, AND the Spurs are going to need to underperform.

Spurs in 7."

Exactly.

Nah, "Actions speak louder than words."

We all know that you're the biggest homer on this blog and hate anything that doesn't fit neatly in your small homer world. (A 4x4 area meticulously and anally cleaned 24/7 to maintain the orderliness and sanctity of your own little 16 square foot square universe.)

OC, we all know that you are a 2000% Laker homer and that your middle name should be "Sour Grapes."

He he.

yeah OC..WTF?...you sir are a Miami traitor, I mean you grew up here ..gezz, repent now and start rooting for the Heatles..

and Tom..I WILL NEVER ROOT against my Dolphins even if they are coached by the worst coach in the NFL.

BB is correct,winning more games means nothing...regular season means zero in these scenarios..Heat have more talent and the best player there is...and they can turn it on at any time...and don't count out there bench when it's time to get rough and tumble...and of course there is Wade on fire...it will be a tough series but I believe the heat take it in 6...

like I said earlier..defense will be the key for the Heat tonight..they need to put their big boy pants tonight and start the series the right way.

Hey FZ,

Has your stepson found a job yet ??

Wood.....ROTFLMFAO!!!! Cono te la comiste!!! Me estoy meando!!!

Orange..as a matter of fact my former son Jeffy does have a new career going..

http://cdn.ksk.uproxx.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/Eminem.jpg

he's a rapper now.

kids..today is the tenth year anniversary of Ronald Reagan's death..one of the greatest "presidentes" we ever had..

hopefully our next "presidente" will love America as much as he did..as opposed to the asswipe we have now..

sorry David.

OB4e, el nalga de Woodcock se la dejó pasar porque el sabe que lo mando para la pinga y el reindose a carcajadas.

Roid, winning more games during the season does matter, as it earns one the seventh game at home. That wouldn't mean jack-ch*t if one team is clearly dominant, but when evenly matched, it does favor the home team. That was one of the things Phil Jackson tried to impress upon all his winning teams. 82% is a pretty significant hurdle. We'll see.

our role players need to step up big time starting with Chalmers who has done "mierda" in the playoffs so far.

OC your stat really proves that the best team almost always has the best record. But that't not the case this year. D Wade sat out a third of the season so he would be ready to compete in the playoffs. He is. And with Wade Miami is the best team in the NBA.

Heat in 6

miami in 6

A majority of voters say the Obama administration is less competent than Bill Clinton's and a plurality say it is less competent than George W. Bush's

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-politics/wp/2014/06/04/poll-obama-administration-less-competent-than-bushs-or-clintons-more-americans-say/

Yeah that sounds about right.

FZB Chalmers has to show up for them to win I think as well. They have benefitted a lot from Cole being a solid player in his absence of good play. david aren't you proud of me. I haven't said anything bad about the Heat today. I am over the fact that Ray Ray left. Not.

Heat in 6! Maybe 5. Look for the Heat to get game 1 tonight! Go ThreeHeat!

BB..Chalmers has done nothing, nada so far in the playoffs...now I know he has a knack for coming up big in big games and you can't get any bigger than the NBA finals..let's see if he wakes up.

I still think the big key for the Heat tonight is the defense...

Ps...you need to get over this Ray Allen thing...its obvious he made the right decision .

FZB in the spirit of getting over things, you need to get over Ireland's firing...it's obvious the Dolphins made the right decision.

THE SPURS ARE CHEATERS !!! No AC made it to hot for the HEAT !!!

Everyone's against []_[]s ! The NBA, REFS, NCAA and GOD !!!

FZB in the spirit of getting over things, you need to get over Ireland's firing...it's obvious the Dolphins made the right decision.

i guess coming from tom that makes sense; hickey has only been on the job for a few months, but anyone that can call a draft a failure after 24 hours can certainly call a 3 month GM tenure a success.

and yes baby, i am proud.
and i wouldn't be over a talent like ray allen leaving either.
it was horrible for ainge to give him the runaround; leaving him on the trading black every year, etc.
i'd hate ainge forever for that. oh that's right; i already DO hate that worm..
heat in 6

hopefully our next "presidente" will love America as much as he did..as opposed to the asswipe we have now..

sorry David.

More brilliant analysis from the World's Dumbest Man.

Well OC,this thing isn't going 7 so I still hold my ground that regular season doesn't matter...as I said,I didn't think Heat would win this first game...I still think they split in San Antonio and win in 6...

If I am the guy in charge of advertising for Gatorade, Lebron's picture last night would be my poster for the next ad campaign...

Post of the night came from WNBA girl who said...

"Why didn't D.wade lend him one of his blue towels!!"

if the wrong position is drafted it only takes an idiot longer than 10 seconds to figure out it was a bad pick.

The Heat will win. Their best player was incapacitated for a large part of the game and all of the 4th quarter. In spite of that the Heat were up 4 going into the 4th period. Turn the AC back on and Miami wins going away.

No AC no problem for Larry Legend. Writes Bob Ryan:


Game 4 in Los Angeles had been an epic - truly one of the great games in Celtics playoff history - and now the teams were arriving at Logan Airport late on a Thursday afternoon to find a very different Boston than the one they had left five days earlier.

For Boston was in the grip of a heat wave.

We're talking high 90s with accompanying East Coast humidity. Logan Airport was chaotic. There were cars and taxis everywhere. There were people sweating, babies crying, miserable, angry, and frustrated people all over. If you ever saw "The Year of Living Dangerously," you know what I'm talking about.


The traffic was such a mess that the state troopers would not allow the Laker bus to get near Terminal C. And that's when I saw Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Magic Johnson folding themselves into the same taxi, and never mind the idea of the presi dent and vice president flying on the same plane.


"This," I remember thinking, "is not exactly what those two had in mind."


It was the eve of Game 5 in that unforgettable 1984 NBA Finals between the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers, and it was a pretty good prelude for the game that took place the following night.


It was to be a very important affair, Game 5, with the teams tied at two games apiece and feelings coming to a boil. The series could easily have been an LA sweep, but a lot had happened to change the tone of the series, most notably a vicious Kevin McHale takedown of Kurt Rambis in Game 4 that would have gotten him suspended for the duration today.


The weather snippet on the far right corner of the game-day Globe said, "Hazy, humid, low 90s," but that turned out to be an understatement. By mid-afternoon it was a record-setting 96, so everyone knew it was going to be a very interesting evening of basketball because the original Boston Garden did not have that newfangled thing known as air conditioning.


There were some hot nights in that old building over the years, but there was never one like the evening of June 8, 1984. The male fans wore shorts and short-sleeved shirts. The women wore, well, as little as possible. Halter tops proliferated. There was never a day or evening in the long history of that building when there was so much exposed skin.

CBS announced a game-time temperature of 97 degrees.

The Lakers did not like it, and Kareem disliked it most of all. He was 37, and fairly cranky to begin with, and playing a Finals game in 97-degree heat was not his idea of fun. He would shoot 7 for 25 and wind up sucking on oxygen (honest).

"I suggest you go to the local steam bath with all your clothes on," he said afterward. "First, try to do 100 push-ups. Then run back and forth for 48 minutes."

Referee Hugh Evans had to leave at halftime, a victim of dehydration. Robert Parish sat out a stretch of the second half with leg cramps. But there was one player who applied mind over matter better than everyone else, one player who not only overcame the circumstances to play a good game of basketball, but who so took to the conditions that he played one of the great games of his life.


As my mother used to say, I'll give you three guesses, and the first two don't count.


"I play in this stuff all the time back home, " sneered Larry Bird. "It's like this all summer."


He had just played 42 minutes in Kareem's sauna. He had scored 34 points, grabbed 17 rebounds, and shot 15 for 20. He even blocked a James Worthy shot. The Celtics had won, 121-103, to take charge of a series they would win in seven, and the man deserving the first, second, and third stars was No. 33.


"The man who made the difference was Bird," acknowledged Lakers coach Pat Riley. "He was just awesome. He made everything work. He was the catalyst, and that's what happens when great players come to the front."


"I've never seen him as intense as he was tonight," said Kevin McHale. "Never."


The other great force that night was the crowd, which turned what could have been a negative into a complete positive by celebrating the absurd conditions. Rather than bemoaning the heat, those savvy people celebrated it, realizing that the Lakers were feeling sorry for themselves because they were used to the creature comforts of the palatial Forum.


Here was the message: Watching a game in an old, cramped, steamy building and sitting on those hard seats, why, that's what we do here in New England. We don't need your cushioned seats and we don't need no stinkin' air conditioning. We leave that stuff to you West Coast wusses. And, by the way, your team is soft.


"It was extremely hot; both teams were affected," said Riley. "But Boston showed up better than we did. I think the home crowd had something to do with that. It gave them some adrenaline."


Those great people just did what used to come so naturally. Wyc and Pags, get this: No over-the-top PA man. No ridiculously loud and unnecessary music. No Jumbotron to tell you when to cheer and how to react. No dancing girls. The fans created an atmosphere to remember all by themselves. People in those days actually knew how to cheer. They went to the game to see the game, not for a mini-concert, and not, Lord knows, to see themselves on a big screen.


On the night of June 8, 1984, 25 years ago tomorrow, we had an unscripted evening of serendipitous athletic joy. The Clippers will win a championship before we'll ever have the remotest chance of anything like it ever happening again.

Lebron is always making excuses. First i cant shoot sleeves bother me. Now the heat bothers him. He is just an overpaid crybaby. Everybody on that floor had the same game conditions. He is sounding like Ex Lakers coach Phil Jackson, just whining. Just play the game like everybody else and quit whining and flopping. always looking at the referees waiting for a foul to be called.

Man half of you need to get out of your personal feelings when it comes to the HEAT....why do so many of you haters dislike the HEAT....bottom line is who give a F%$K why you haters hate...how many of you HATERS would like to in LBJ'S shoes...hold that lie that is about to come out of your mouth......

Excuses, excuses. Weren't all players under the same conditions. That is what happens to a player that is pampered.

BB...REALLY....Typical Mass-a-chochan.....

You have to put the whole article in.....

It's called a link...use it...

BB...take notes on how its done...

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-shutdown-corner/jonathan-martin-jokes-about-lebron-james--cramps--twitter-ninnies-pounce-141343174.html

And how does this turd burglar have the vagina to call anybody out....(Martina , not BB)

So, when the game was hot at the Garden, Parrish cramped, Kareem struggled, a ref had to leave. Sounds like playing basketball in 90 degree plus weather is a bad idea generally. Cest la vie.

Heat should get the split Sunday and take control and all of this nonsense and flukiness will be forgotten.

Oye OC, eres un focking sapo, brother!

BB, I thought that Red Auerbach and that focking midget that he had who used to turn up the heater at the old Garden were dead?

Who the fock knew that they were still alive and retired and living in a double wide in a dump like San Antonio.

No heater the old barn had no AC. Place was fun though filled with smoke, crazy fans, the whole experience was a trip looking back the place used to get really loud. Ah the good old days...

I was at the game when Tree Rollins bit Danny Ainge in that famous scrum only went to a few Celtics games mostly Bruins.

Is San Antonio really a dump? Seems like a decent city but haven't been there.

Bro, you didn't go see the Celts when they had Russel? Bit mistake.

Wood,

Cono bruther estas tarde con esa.....Ya eso lo puse arriba...

BB, I have driven from Houston to El Paso and Brownsville to Amarillo and I wouldn't do it again for a gazillion dollars. The entire state of Texas is one big dump.

BB next time you think about cutting and pasting a Bob Ryan column, DON'T. Nobody here gives a rats a$$ what Bob Ryan thinks. just sayin....

By the way San Antonio is not a dump. It's an awesome city.

BB next time you think about cutting and pasting a Bob Ryan column, DON'T. Nobody here gives a rats a$$ what Bob Ryan thinks. just sayin....

Tom- Bob Ryan is a terrific writer (despite him being a little nutty). He's retired now. From a historical context the article is interesting I thought. Sorry you didn't like it.

Sure, sure, Tommy. Compared to Bumfuck, Alabama where you reside, San Anton is the "BIG" city! Why they even have 'lectricity and runnin' water.

Isn't Bumfuck, Alabama were Jethro Bodine was born, Tommy?

He he.

BB

I didn't read it. Bob Ryan wrote it. It's irrelevant.

Woody I live in two places. Birmingham, AL and Columbia, SC. Both are great places. You live in California the armpit of America. Quite frankly I'd rather live in Liberty City than California.

Tommy, there are five cities worth visiting in the US of A.

Here they are in no particular order;

New York

LA

Miami

San Francisco

Chicago

Every other city in America is just a small town dump that you should either avoid when driving by or pull down the shade on your airplane window when flying over them.

On a day like today we all need to give thanks for what we have and remember who made it all possible.

http://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/d-day-70th-anniversary/d-day-anniversary-barack-obama-joins-world-leaders-vets-omaha-n124261

There's no accounting for good taste, Tommy Boy.

VISIT is the operative word. I've lived in SF. Wouldn't live there again. My wife and I were in the upper deck of Candlestick October 17, 1989 when the earthquake hit. We left SF within two years. The nutjobs took over California and some day soon the west coast is going to slide off into the Pacific Ocean making Reno beachfront property.

I love visiting Chicago. I do so every year. But who in their right mind would want to live in that crime infested jungle?

If you don't care about breathing and traffic LA would be a great place to live.

I'd much rather enjoy my life in smaller towns and visit the other places that are not really livable. They're really just survivable and in some instances (Chicago) just barely.

just sayin....

San Francisco is very livable a beautiful place you just need to be a millionaire to live comfortably there or in any other of those cities Woody mentioned. Tom the earthquake issue is very real that might make me think twice before ever living there. You lived it firsthand. I drove over the Bay Bridge a few times visiting and I don't think I could do it everyday in a million years after thinking about 89'.

Sure, sure, Tommy, that's why California is the Golden State and Alabama and South Carolina are the places where Californians dump their garbage.

TB, you know I'm busting your balls, right?

so the Heat lost..hey they can't win every game, all it means is sunday's game is a must game.

Woody..agree on 4 of your 5 cities..NY is a dump.

Oye, OC, I just found the perfect job for you, bro.

You can paint the entire freaking place yellow and purple and stick ten thousand Lakers flags all over the roof and name yourself the Emperor of Ft. Lakers......

At least if you move here the weather will be better than in Austin and you won't have to spend 20 hours a week cleaning up bat shit from your balcony.

https://screen.yahoo.com/comedy/fort-ruler-best-job-world-225508753.html

Anyway Senor Woodcock, regarding Tianenenen.. a WTF TANK guy, Amigo the only thing that gives orders in this world is balls...


Not all of the 5 boroughs in NYC are nice FZ. The same can be said about areas in other cities as well just on a much smaller scale. Anyone who thinks Manhattan is a dump really doesn't know what they are talking about it's a great place to live or visit.

Bro, Tank Man needs one car for himself to get around and 100 flat bed trucks to carry his balls wherever he goes.

ok now..here's a little quiz for the Cubanos of the blog..have at it boys..

http://www.miami.com/what-cuban-food-are-you-article

BB..most of Nueva York is a freaking dump.

Manhattan?..borderline dump..hehe

I'm a Media Noche.

You are nocturnal and enjoy the nightlife. When you arrive at a party you like being the center of attention, a ham if you will.

Here you go, because deep down I'm a freaking softy.

If you've never owned a dog you're making a big mistake.

Thanks, OC, for talking me into getting one.

http://www.clickondetroit.com/news/michigan-soldier-reunited-with-service-dog-after-4-years-apart/26348008

Wood's..GREAT, GREAT STORY about our young marine and his dog.

god bless the men and women of our military..

Enjoyed seeing Wiley Riley squirming in stands
Go Spurs Go

California the Golden State....living in the past is no way to go thru life Woody. It once was a great place to live but no more. It's the human waste dump of America. It's the Golden State to the illegals and homeless looking for freebies that your elected officials can't give away fast enough. No thanks my good friend. Lived there. Done that. Smart enough to have gotten out never to return permanently. If you were smart you'd follow OC out of that dump. I pitty the fool who lives in California but has a choice.

Big Baby,

that friday night in boston produced on of the greatest games in NBA history. the celtics "gritted" it out over the lakers in a truly classic match. and imagine, two oldsters like chickie baby and johnny most having to endure the AC-less boston garden. the 84 finals and 77 finals are my two favorites, along with the warriors/bullets of 75. i don't remember the lakers whining over the temperature in the garden that night, something the writers,if not the players also, are doing- it was hot for both teams last night.

Sounds a bit like Florida. Or most States in this country now. There isn't a lot of distinction anymore.

Thanks for reading shadow I thought there was an interesting parallel between that game and last nights game worth posting.

Big Baby,

will watch on sunday as the "big boy" has its lamp and i can resume watching the big screen in the manner to which i am accustomed. getting outscored by 19 points in the third "period" even without LBJ is absurd, especially when the spurs top guys are old. give the spurs credit for being patient with danny green and for acquiring my man, kawhi leonard from indiana. green wasn't even the best shooter on the championship UNC team- wayne ellington was- but even thought his shots hit metal on the way down they still go in. that tar heel team couldn't shoot the year before in the semis versus kansas, but nobody got close to them in the title match against the spartans played in detroit. i am still thinking that blake griffin will never forget the tar heels, especially hansborough,who crushed them in the regional final.

shadow one of my big screen TV's needs a lamp what does that cost I want to keep it I think.
