NBA Discussion: Warrioooooors, come out to plaaayaaay
I don't think that is the problem. It is more just typical lazy basketball, hence why they have blown so many leads. They lead the league in long 2pt shots. There is no reason that a team with those three should have to settle for low percentage jumpers. That screams a combination of laziness and a bad offensive system; both of which I would consider a byproduct of poor coaching.
In other news the injury to Haslem has finally woken up the Heat to sign Erick Dampier according to Marc Stein. About time I think. He's 6'11", rebounds and blocks. 'Nuff said.
So what you're saying is the Heat are playing like they are an All Star team/team USA?
In fairness, they are missing Mike Miller who would be nailing those open shots Arroyo is missing. Once he returns he'll provide a big lift. Problem is he's an injury waiting to happen.
Wade, LeBron and Bosh are ball dominant players and it's hurting them right now. Talent wise they're ridiculous, but chemistry wise they really don't fit together. At least not right now.
As long as they get Haslem and Miller back for the post-season that is what is important. As Boston showed last year, seeding and regular season performance doesn't mean anything if you can get hot at the right time. 72 wins is out of the picture, but that may be a good thing.
Have you tried passing in that game? It's ******* ridiculous and thus I disagree.
Yeah, it seems like 2K racheted up the turnovers off of passes this year.
The actual turnovers per game isn't off, it's just that an inordinate amount of them come off of passes. They probably just did it to offset the incredibly low amount of turnovers from anything besides a picked off pass. You'll get an occasional three-second violation, but that's about it.
It is a sad state of affairs in Miami in general. Did anybody catch this Lebron quote?

You don’t want anything easy, especially as a professional athlete; nothing is easy,” said James, who had 29 points and 11 assists.
“This wasn’t something I thought was easy ... I would rather it not be easy because you have to go through growing pains to be great at the end when you face those challenges you had early in the year. The easy button is not for us.”
Hey guess what...when you join up with Dwayne Wade and Bosh, you are taking the easy way, dilweed. I guarantee you Lebron thought it would be easy when he was talking about winning 7 championships.
Teaming up with them is no different than Kobe playing with Lamar Odom and Pau Gasol, the Boston big 4, etc. Can we move past this "taking the easy way out" canard?
There are plenty of ways it is different.
Kobe was there first and didn't join up with anyone.
Both of those guys were traded for.
Why is Kobe even relevant to this discussion...
Lebron is the one talking about the easy way out, it's not even the fans. I don't know him and I suspect few do, but it definitely appears that his psyche is caught up in all this still, making it a legitimate talking point.
Literally every sound byte that comes out of Lebron's mouth is some new way of justifying his decision, or trying to get back in the good graces of a public that really does seem to have endless wrath to spew in his direction. It is getting sad.
