When the 2010-11 NBA schedule was released this summer, fans figuratively circled Christmas Day on their calendars for what's been billed as a potential NBA Finals matchup between the Heat and the Los Angeles Lakers.

Judging from the brisk sales and lofty ticket prices on the secondary sales market, it's also the hottest ticket of the season. Sales prices on StubHub.com have ranged from $106 to $2,974 with an average sales price of $552.

The average price for the Cleveland Cavaliers versus the Lakers last Christmas Day averaged $417, StubHub spokeswoman Joellen Ferrer said. Demand and total sales have outpaced that game, and this year's game is expected to be the top-selling in gross sales for the season, she said.

"Fans have earmarked this game since schedules were announced and the anticipation has heightened now that we're drawing closer to the big game," Ferrer said. "The $552 average marks this game as the priciest regular season NBA game in our company's 10-year history, clearly indicating that fans are willing to spend a few extra bucks to be at Staples Center on Christmas Day."

This kind of hater crap is why I find it hard to be a member of PSD sometimes. Just like the Lakers got slapped around by the Bucks last night? Anything can happen, and this Heat team has the ability to beat anyone in the league, with the exception being Dallas, lol. It's the marquee Christmas matchup, and should a great game to watch. Both teams will be up for this one. Your post was obviously just to inflame and bait Heat fans, so congrats! I'm sure it will work, unless it gets deleted as it should.

U .. MAD?

Just my opinion and I can back it up with reasons if you want me to.

The Lakers are a veteran ball club, they have that championship chemistry and they are the most solid team out of the two. They are good and solid at all of the positions.

Heat lack good point guards, the Lakers don't.
Heat lack good, agile and crafty bigs, the Lakers don't.
Heat lack a good bench, the Lakers don't.

Seriously, how is this game supposed to be competitive at all? Heat don't stand a chance with three good players and a d-league cast. And like I previously stated, the Lakers just like the Celtics, have been playing together for a while now. They have the experience and the chemistry that you can only get by playing for years and winning championships together.

Not to mention this game will be under some kind of spotlight due to the way it's been hyped. Solid veteran teams know how to play well under the spotlight and pressure, the Heat have showed us they don't. They have failed numerous times with teams over .500 quite badly through the season so far. How on earth do you expect them to even compete with the champions in a spotlight game with a crappy cast (and all the reasons already stated above)?

Let's get realistic here.

If the Bucks can smackdown the Lakers in Staples then i think it's pretty much safe to assume the Heat also can, not saying it'll be easy or anything but i think we do have a chance.

It'll be a good game.

You clearly don't understand how good Miami is. They're not as good or cohesive as L.A. or Boston yet, but they are getting there. BTW, when healthy, Miller aint no scrub, and James Jones leads the league in 3PT%. UD's solid too, bt he isn't playing. Saying our supporting cast is crappy compared to some other teams is a hater comment. Anything can happen in the NBA, and if you watch for once, you would know that but you clearly don't. Milwaukee whooped L.A. last night. Miami will be up for the game just as much as L.A., if not more. Think rationally please on both sides of the fence before you post. Thank you. :clap:

Considering they just got beaten at home last night by a below .500 team, and were down by 15 before Kobe got ejected, I don't see how you can say that. They also lost just last year on Christmas to the Cavs and were blown out at home. They don't take these regular season games too seriously like it's the end of the world if they lose that one game, and neither will the Heat who is also a veteran team. It's just one game, and it will be competitive and entertaining.

You just seem to be sour and mad for whatever reason. Lighten up and get a life buck-o.

So what happens if the Heat wins??:confused: What is going to be your excuse? That we have 3 superstars? The lakers don't take regular game seriously? Wait until the playoffs Lakers have a different team? Bynum is not 100%? This year the lakers has only beat ONE team above 500. and are losing against teams that they should win against....and trust me the lakers dont want to fall to far behind because REMEMBER' they would want that 1 seed for home court advantage! Lakers is not getting any younger and kobe is pretty banged up, So they would want home court advantage!

The comment was a fail first of all because it's sole intent was to disrepect Heat fans, but we're used to it by now. All you haters do is just spew hate at every turn onto us. It's sad really, that you have to try and put us down all the time. Does it make you feel like more of a man to put others down on the internet? Like I said, sad...Most adults that pursue greater life goals usually grow out of that phase at least by college. The comment, secondly was a fail because Dirk, Rose, and Howard are not as good as Wade. Dirk is a better shooter sure, Rose maybe a better passer, Howard is taller... Wade is better all around by far than all of those players, epecially Rose and Howard. They're all great players, but Wade is better and you know it. Wade will end up with more titles, I can almost gaurantee that, and he already proved who stepped up in the finals when playing against non-other than Dirk at that...Who receeded into the shadows when the spotlight was brightest.

Dwight better than Wade is laughable, sorry. He's having a career year, yes, i can agree with that, but let's not get carried away.

If I was drafting a team and I had to choose between Wade and Dwight, I'd take Dwight. That's nothing against Wade but I think Dwight can do more for me. Take Wade off the Heat and put Dwight in there and they may have lost maybe 4 games.

I don't know how you rank your players but I will take a center/defensive anchor, who can score over a sg who lives off his athleticism.

Wade is an incredible player but the day that guy's legs start to go, he will be half the player he is now. Jordan and Kobe had/have all-around offensive games... Wade does not.

Dwight isn't gonna shrink any time soon and is absolutely the most important player to his team in the entire league.

The comment was a fail first of all because all it's sole intent was to disrepect Heat fans, but we're used to it by now. All you haters do is just spew hate at every turn onto us. It's sad really, that you have to try and put us down all the time. Does it make you feel like more of a man to put others down on the internet? Like I said, sad...Most adults that pursue greater life goals usually grow out of that phase at least by college. The comment, secondly was a fail because Dirk, Rose, and Howard are not as good as Wade. Dirk is a better shooter sure, Rose maybe a better passer, Howard is taller... Wade is better all around by far than all of those players, epecially Rose and Howard. They're all great players, but Wade is better and you know it. Wade will end up with more titles, I can almost gaurantee that, and he already proved who stepped up in the finals when playing against non-other than Dirk at that...Who receeded into the shadows when the spotlight was brightest.

Boozdawg doesn't even have 20 posts yet, and he's already posting stuff to bait. It'll never end.

Without all the facepalms and all that other nonsense....


I have been watching basketball for a long, long time. I am not here to talk **** about the heat, I can care less about them. I respect wade, I think he is one of the most unique talents I will ever get to see play.

With that said,

I think, as do many others, that Jordan and Kobe were able to significantly change their games as their career's went on. I haven't seen Wade change at all... Put either Jordan or Kobe in any situation on the floor and they have a move to get out of it. Kobe's legs have clearly diminished, but his offensive skills are possibly better. He is not nearly as flashy, doesn't dunk much anymore either, but can post people up at will, has incredible footwork and can shoot the hell out of the ball.

Wade is a slasher. He is a very streaky shooter and travels more times than not when he has the ball. I am not trying to diminish his skills but I seriously believe his offensive game is not nearly at the same level as a Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant or even a guy like Carmelo Anthony. Anthony is a pure scorer who can score, consistently, from multiple ways. Wade is built off getting to the hoop and slashing. I believe that once his legs go, he will have a lot more problems than Jordan did, Kobe currently does, and Carmelo will.


-And I don't want to see you talk about watching Michael Jordan play because if you were around back then, there's no way you would be using Facepalms, smiley face's, and all that other garbage.

And Dwight's efficiency is ridiculous. Dwight is the better player, that guy is just a Wade homer.

Lots of players are having a better year then Kobe, So are you saying that those players are better then kobe?? You cant say just because a player is having a great year (30) games in mind you, that they are better player overall! When wade numbers were of the charts 2 years ago, everyone was still saying that kobe and lebron are the best players in the league and thats including myself.

You guys are not taking into account the importance of the 2 positions.

--Of course Wade will have better offensive numbers than a Center. Dwight however is the best defensive big in the league, he is athletic, is progressing nicely on the offensive end, and did I mentioned he was a big man. He is the anchor to your defense.

Wade is great, but you can find scoring shooting guards all over. Granted, none of them are as talented as Wade right now.

There is nothing even remotely close to Dwight Howard right now in the NBA.

If you have been watching basketball for a long time, then you should know that Jordan did not really developed a post game and a consistent jump shot until he got to his 30's......and wade is what 28???

Give him a chance, he will slow down soon and when he does he realize that to stay in the league and be affective he has to develop a post game or a killer jump shot like kobe:D

FYI I have a bunch of MJ's playoffs games, so don't jump conclusions please.

Facepalms are available for anyone to use so I can use them as i please. Besides, it's irrelevant to the topic so don't even mention it anymore.

Secondly, Michael Jordan travels more times than not as well as Kobe also, so don't be singling out Wade for it. Heck, LeBron does it too, officials don't run around following it all game long.

Lastly, if you watch Wade play, he also can post up smaller guards. He just doen't do it enough since the offense is structured differently. Remember MJ and Kobe played for Phil Jackson and the triangle offense REQUIRES their offensive versatility. Wade doesn't have to do that here.

U .. MAD?

Just my opinion and I can back it up with reasons if you want me to.

The Lakers are a veteran ball club, they have that championship chemistry and they are the most solid team out of the two. They are good and solid at all of the positions.

Heat lack good point guards, the Lakers don't.
Heat lack good, agile and crafty bigs, the Lakers don't.
Heat lack a good bench, the Lakers don't.

Seriously, how is this game supposed to be competitive at all? Heat don't stand a chance with three good players and a d-league cast. And like I previously stated, the Lakers just like the Celtics, have been playing together for a while now. They have the experience and the chemistry that you can only get by playing for years and winning championships together.

Not to mention this game will be under some kind of spotlight due to the way it's been hyped. Solid veteran teams know how to play well under the spotlight and pressure, the Heat have showed us they don't. They have failed numerous times with teams over .500 quite badly through the season so far. How on earth do you expect them to even compete with the champions in a spotlight game with a crappy cast (and all the reasons already stated above)?

Let's get realistic here.

The Cavs won last year with Lebron having Mo and Varejao. I'm sure they can still make it competitive.

The Lakers also have a losing record to teams over .500.

And Wade, Bosh and LBJ are arguably the closest guys in the league. So they've been playing together for a while too.

Not saying the Heat will win but don't get over yourself.

I was just responding to his post, Saying that dwight and drose are better than dwade and he is saying this because 30 games in the numbers are off the charts. Dwight's team is loosing and I dont care if the team was changing players or not! He supposedly a better player than wade, then he should be caring that team to winning like wade did the last two years!

What does that even mean? You have a bunch of his playoff games... how are you supposed to see the progression of a person's career with a few playoff games? Youtube can't help you with that either.

To another point you made...

Kobe was eerily similar to Wade back in his early years. He was playing in the Triangle then and rarely posted up. He was an athletic freak who could get to the rim at will. He was streaky and was a great offensive player but was not even close to an all-around force.

The only reason he posts up so much and relies on his footwork now is because he HAS to. It's not because Phil is making him... same for Jordan. They got to a point where they had to change their game... but they were making changes every year leading up to that point.

I haven't seen Wade change his style up at all. That's not to say he hasn't progressed at all over the course of his career, he has. But he doesn't add anything new, he just gets better at the things he already does.

My point is:

Kobe and Jordan were constantly changing their game... each year it was something new. I haven't seen Wade change at all. I think that will end up hurting him when he does have to change his style up. I know he doesn't HAVE to change yet... But when he does, I believe it will be a much harder transition for him.

-How do I know he didn't see Jordan play? Hmmm... maybe because he/she admitted to it. They said they have a few of Michael Jordan's playoff games... If they had seen MJ play, wouldn't they say so, rather than stating they just have a few of his playoff games?

Thank you for being more specific :D but like I said, Jordan started to develop the post game in his 30's and started to be more consistent on his jumper every year and I have seen wade get better on his shot and he has been posting up since last year.
