You didn't finish college, what's he supposed to think?

I remember Jalen Rose talking about taking money once. Like, people become outraged and act like it's a bunch of greedy assholes ruining the integrity of the game, but even if you have a problem with

LBJ > MJ

At least Scott Foster is Reffing tonights game.

 

he's horrible but it's probably good news for The Heat since he loves to blow his whistle.

 

My nightmare reffing crew would be Violet Palmer , Joey Crawford and Scott Foster

The primary thing Indiana needs to avoid is foul trouble from any of their starters. They need all five of those guys playing 40+ tonight. Zach Lowe had a stat that showed the Pacers second most used lineup this series has only seen 14 minutes total. (And that unit has a really good +-, but I forget the exact number.)

two of your three gifs don't work.

 

The replay with the camera looking through the backboard was a much better angle. I'm assuming one of the other two non-working links was the better angle.

God, that block. Watching that play live I really really thought Splitter was going to hammer that down.

 

 

(Great pass by Parker too.)

 

 

The game was pretty lame though. Hit a shot for crying out loud. Also, I don't think the officiating was bad (or mattered), but it felt like Parker was on the floor a lot. Not sure how much of that was flopping.

My feelings on which Lebron shows up for game 4:

 

Game 6 against Boston last year Lebron - 60%

Game 4 against Dallas two years ago Lebron - 40%

 

Before this series started, I always expected Great Lebron to show up. My confidence in him has been shaken quite a bit. The thing about that game two explosion is that most of it came from Spurs turnovers and not from beating their halfcourt defense. Lebron was one of the best shooters in the league this year and now the Spurs are giving him all the space in the world and he's not hitting. It's very weird.

Heat in 5.

 

Pacers in 9.

 

I expect lebron to bounce back strong in game 4 but he sure looks exhausted. I'm wondering if three straight finals trips and the Olympics and carrying Wade is catching up to him.

 

Still, Miami wins tomorrow and this is all a memory.

Steve Kerr said he didn't think the Bulls would win a 4th straight even if Michael came back because they were physically and emotionally spent. I don't doubt that Lebron is tired; that's part of what makes this series so compelling. If he can put together three great games and carry Miami to another title, it would be very, very impressive to me. If Miami wins, that's how I want it to happen. I don't want a bunch of 3's from Chalmers and Miller and San Antonio missing shots and Parker getting hurt.

I liked the part where they were talking about how much hate LeBron drew for taking out a loan to buy a $50K car. It blows my mind. First off, a $50K Hummer would not have been one of the 100 nicest cars at my HS. Like, his career was worth more equity-wise when he was 15 than I will ever have (not to mention that he was already working a lot harder than I ever will), and my car is nicer than that. Maybe some angry, bitter old basketball head hates seeing people shine, but if a ****ing Hummer is enough to make you feel like a loser, maybe you should try not to look in the direction of specimens of his caliber.

 

Second, I love that it's a rule that not only are college players not allowed to make money but they also aren't allowed to cash in any of the equity that their work and talent have created so as to not have to show up on draft day in a 79 Cutlass with an engine knock. I particularly enjoy this, because for my entire youth, I couldn't turn on a TV without seeing slave master Mark Richt getting paid to drive and shill massive, brand new Ford trucks, while black kids turned their joints and brains into mush for free to help him secure that deal.

 

Literally the only conceivable explanation for rules and reactions like that is that grown men get so jealous over kids being better than them that the NCAA tries to make players' lives as shitty as possible to appease their loser fanbase who can't afford a ****ing Hummer at 35 years old.
