Too comfortable is code for: No one laid a body on James and Wade, no one made them think twice about driving the ball right through our manhood. Miami was relentless chasing down every loose ball, destroying Boston on the boards, and treating Celtics drives to the rim with downright disdain: Blocking them into the next yard, or slapping shots backward to start a fast break, and an inevitable Heat chin-up on the rim.

Rajon Rondo seethed, and said simply: "Nothing dirty, but they have to hit the deck too."

Is this the only way that teams know how to beat the Heat? By turning this into something other than a game of basketball?

And shame on Woj for endorsing this kind of behavior.

In the NFL, this kind of talk would have been shunned by 90% of the league -- and that's a true contact sport.

I remember the good old days when some contact when driving to the basket was a given.

Anyway, Rondo is right, you have to protect the paint. He's not talking about injuring someone, but at least make them earn their points from the free throw line. Most coaches will tell you to foul in order to prevent a layup, it's the smart thing to do. A good hard foul might make a driver change his mind about driving the next time so it's just a smart play.

Anyway, it probably won't matter. The Heat look way to strong for Boston.

You're missing a large chunk of the point in Rondos quote. The part: "nothin dirty, but they have to hit the floor to" means that the Heat were physical with the Celtics, making them hit the floor. What Rondo suggests, is that the Celtics must match this physicality..

And to be honest, in my opinion the Heat player themselves are a big reasons why basketball games turn into something other than a game of basketball. The reasons? Showboating, flopping and a lack of respect towards their opponents.

I mean, Lebron James is allowed to elbow Granger on every rebound, and if Granger has a problem with this, comes at Lebron..then we see Lebron crying at the media: "I don't know whats wrong with him, childish, immature.." In addition, add a little flopping for example like James did against JR Smith and Tyson Chandler, and there you have it - the reason why games become battles.

I saw a good amount of flopping by Rondo and the Celtics. As far as matching the physicality of Miami.. Boston needs to first play with a lot more energy. For the most part I thought Boston's d was good and didn't let a ton of penetration but at times they just seemed a step behind.

Ugh.......this is why I do not care for today's NBA. Everyone is tweeting about being physical. Just DO it and not TALK about it. Now you basically said......."hey refs, watch us closely because we are going to get physical".

I just chuckle thinking about Laimbeer, Mahorn, Barkely, etc. in todays game.

Rondo is stating the obvious. Everyone knows that the more physical and aggressive team generally always wins.

Anyway, I'm not sure why Heat fans would get bent out of shape for this. IMHO, you guys should be happy that Haslem wasn't suspended for the first couple of games of this series.

He is and I don't mind what rondo said. Celtics didn't match the heat's energy at all and to top it off poor officiating ...yea.....and heat fans are getting annoying especially complaining about this and then claiming every other team is nothing compared to them. Guess that's what happens when you have 2 top 5 players on the same team and using Obama slogans that they did it.

i don't complain about star calls, because bron and wade create a ton of contact.

it's just as much rondo psyching his guys up to be more physical.

the irony is that jumpers and free throws sunk boston last night,

You don't give free layups.

He's not advocating a MWP elbow or a Haslem double donkey kong punch.

All he's trying to get at is no free layups.

May be a tough concept to fans in Miami that just started watching basketball last year but that's the way playoff basketball was when the NBA was at its height of popularity.

no problem with a physical series...

I think he needs to be careful with the wording though. Seeing as he already took two frustration fouls late in the game...his words here could easily be read as some sort of threat.

saying stuff like this to the media will only result in an even tighter game being called next game IMO. NBA really doesn't want this to get out of hand.

I love the C's, but who ever wins this series will lose to whoever comes out of the west. The Heat and C's don't have the depth and size that OKC and the Spurs have. I am rooting for the celtics to win this, but they are hurting bad, at full health I'd really like their chances. What really would be enjoyable is seeing the Heat not win a championship, and then seeing them try and trade Bosh in the off season, and that Big 3 would be marked down as a "fail". Because if you don't win a championship, it is going to be a fail....

Thanks for supporting my post from before. You call it hate and you use clever little phrases with the word 'hate' to make it 'heat'. Why didn't the rest of the world think of this?

I'm going to laugh extremely hard if the Heat stop going right at defenders and try to avoid all contact. All Rondo is saying is they need to try to block the shot more, and if you happen to commit a foul by doing that, so be it.

And to be honest, in my opinion the Heat player themselves are a big reasons why basketball games turn into something other than a game of basketball. The reasons? Showboating, flopping and a lack of respect towards their opponents.

Showboating? Like rondos behind the back fakes?
Flopping? Like pierce yelling and flailing like he was just shot any time there is contact?
Lack of respect towards opponents? Like KG being an a-hole all game?

This. They act like LeBron is some tough guy, yet when its crunch time, Mr. Tough guy sits in the corner on the perimeter and doesn't even try to take the last shot. Someone who is tough wants that ball, and to have the confidence to take a game winner.

D Wade & Lbj will keep going to the rim relentlessly....

All this is going to do is get the C's into foul trouble early... then stupid fans are going to complain about how much foul calls the HEAT get :facepalm::facepalm::facepalm: you can't have it both ways.

All some of you have to sit back and thank about it; Wade drives to the basket, you foul him hard as ****.... Wade goes to the line, he gets mad, he goes off; and he will keep driving to the basket getting call after call.... Your big men get into foul trouble.

Some of you fans are acting like children.... YEAH foul the HEAT hard that will show them ... smh

All this is going to do is make HEAT haters more angrier, when most of the players on that other team foul OUT. Wade & Lbj are still going to attack the basket relentlessly, hard fouls will not change that, it will just increase it.

boston just can't match up against Wade & Lbj, so what.... just except it and come up with a game plan to force the other HEAT players to step up and win the game.

And some of you posters really have hate in your heart, you need to take care of that. Trust in Yahweh!!!

ManRam
05-29-2012, 12:07 PM
I actually like that he said that. "Nothing dirty"...that's all that matters.

The Heat were getting to the rim too easily. KG is the C's only decent rim-protector, and they really don't have any huge tough guys. But it was too easy for Miami. It was a walk in the park to get to the rim. The Celtics fouled A LOT at the rim because they couldn't stop those two. If you're gonna have to rely on that, foul them harder. Send a message. Anything that says "you know, we're gonna try to protect this rim and not make it a cakewalk for you" is a necessity. If they don't do that, they've already lost.

Physical play is what they need to do more of. They don't have the speed to keep up with Miami. They don't have the three point shooting that can be the great equalizer. They don't even have the size advantage. They can show toughness, and they need to do that.


Nothing at all wrong with what he said. I actually commend him for saying it.

But they still need to try. They gotta do something to stop those easy dunks and layups. They don't have the speed or size to stop it readily, so physicality is their next option. They have to try, and that's why I applaud Rondo for speaking up.

yes, it is basketball.. or was basketball back when the sport had some toughness too it.... i was wishing the knicks had this mentallity during the series. Lebron and Wade are going to get the calls anyway, make them earn it and foul them hard, its a contact sport....

it exactly like rondo said, nothing dirty about it, but you gotta foul hard and make them think twice about going to the basket... especially when you know they are gonna gt the pitty pat foul calls anyway.

go watch some old school bsketball, there were literally tguys on teams whos only job was to come in and beat the other team up, it sucks that basketball doesnt have that toughness anymore.

The Heat have played that way the entire playoffs and now when their opponent says this, it's no longer basketball? This is playoff basketball. Come into the lane like it's easy and you will get fouled hard. The NBA has been this way in the playoffs for a long time...

I see the Heat taking care of the Celtics in this series. Boston is injured and not as quick. And, the only tough inside presence for the Celtics right now is Garnett and his scoring is just as needed in this series so you can't count on KG making sure the paint is clear 100% of the time.

HowBoutDemBulls
05-29-2012, 01:26 PM
Maaan Boston had plenty of opportunities in the 4th quarter to cut down that lead and they couldn't get anything going. If they are unable to put any pressure on the Heat then this series will be a sweep. Lebron and Wade are both frontrunners not come from behind players. Boston needs to set the tone and take control early in the game. With the refs on their side and the Celtics not stopping them Lebron is comfortable and able to play his game.

That's dirty.

I can't wait till the Heat face San Antonio. The only 2 teams in the NBA that win with team work and talent.

Everyone else is just looking to gain an edge outside of the game of basketball.

nothing wrong with these comments the heat were more physical and rondo wants the celtics to step up. He isn't saying lay lebron and wade out he is just saying make them think twice before driving with no hesitation. The heat do exactly what Rondo is telling his team to do so to say Rondo is dirty is to say the Heat are dirty go figure.

No it is called basketball. It will make the team think twice and change the way they drive. It's not dirty they aren't laying them out to hurt them they are bumping them to change the style of play all teams do it including the Heat.

Heat fans, it's playoff basketball talk, not dirty at all. I know you're just defending your team, but doing so blindly, is foolish.

Disgruntled Knick/Bull/Laker fans, chill with the "Lebron is a ****ing *****" and "the Heat are *******" comments. It sounds pathetic and is very annoying to read every other post.

Dirty plays like "sending guys to the deck" is not basketball, and if the Celtics attempt it, expect retaliation. Just don't pretend like the Celtics weren't aware of the consequences of their actions.

That's basketball though. If guys are blowing by you and getting to the rim with ease you send them to the floor so they'll think twice about going up strong next time. That's how the game's been played since it's creation. If you don't wanna get fouled then don't drive to the basket.

Maybe you didn't read the first two words when he says "Nothing dirty" and the paragraph above it explaining what Rondo meant.

haha what a ****** move. Wade could have seriously hurt collison, but he doesnt care. Heat fans, sucks for you. Id hate to have to root for that guy.

and refs still didnt kick him out. running over a guy from behind at full speed, extending the elbow? should been suspended. but no, Stern and Wade give each other handies.

1.) There's so much whining in this thread. It's pathetic.

2.) Stop baiting Heat fans and trying to start ****. The join date doesn't mean anything; the only thing that matters is what they post. I can understand some people are trolls, but I don't generalize all Bull, Knick, and Celtic fans by what I read here. I could say every Knick fan is a whiny ***** by this thread alone.

3.) Rondo is saying they need to be more physical meaning don't let them get easy baskets. Boston has no chance if Miami keeps getting easy dunks and lay ups. They need to force LeBron and Wade to take contested jumpers, but they are in such a zone with a good ball movement that it's going to be hard to defend them.

4.) I expect game 2 to be a lot tougher and a close game.

NBAFan2012
05-29-2012, 03:43 PM
It is hard to beat a team when they get layup, after layup, after layup, after layup, after layup, after dunk, after dunk, after leak wide open dunk or layup, after layup. You know they cant shoot to save their life yet you dont make them shoot? Really?

Jumpshooting is Kryptonite for their two stars and you give them layups and dunks all game? I like Rondos thinking though but he has to wait until he is at home to do this

ManRam
05-29-2012, 03:49 PM
Saying you want them to hit the deck isn't dirty at all. Wade hits the deck on 50% of his finishes. He didn't hit the deck much last night. You can make guys second guess driving to the rim if instead of slapping at their wrists you put a little body into it. And you can put a little body into a foul without being dirty. He explicitely said "nothing dirty"...so why are we going to assume he means "something dirty"? It's physical basketball. Players hit the deck all the time. If you're gonna send a guy who is torching the first level of defense to the line, at least fould him hard...as opposed to the far-to-frequent slaps on the wrists the Celtic defenders had been doing...

This thread has gone to crap once again. People aren't going to agree, 90% of us are too bias/emotionally invested to think logically, and everyone either loves baiting the Heat or baiting the Heat-haters.

Some think it's over-the-top. Cool.

Some think it's 100% acceptable. Cool.

Hell, Heat fans who think fouling someone so "they hit the deck too" is "dirty", well, be happy he said it...because if anything the refs will be aware and look to call the game tight. And any game called tight favors the Heat because they, 9 times out of 10, are the more aggressive team and get to the rim (where most fouls occur) more than their opponent.

Moving on...

And to the comment on Wade/Lebozo hitting the floor every game, must be easy when they flop to draw fouls all the time.

funny thing is i was talkin to thsi kid other day swore he was real heat fan from before the wade/shaq ring and he couldnt name the starting line up on the only chip team.

When you mean physical, do you mean fouling? knocking them to the ground and no call should be made? When they are going for a lay up and they get the ball off, you what your teams players to be-able to make tough physical contact with them and NO call be made because the ball already left their hand?

Do you mean when they are taking a jump shot, you are able to make contact with them in the air? I can go on and on, but can you PLEASE let me know what you mean by "No one is able to be physical with James or Wade ".

Did you miss the nothing dirty part? Fouling someone attempting to score on you is part of the game. If you match their intensity and aggressiveness, there are going to be some hard (but clean) fouls.

i pitty the intelligence of some people. i also pitty the spoiled prima dona way people are being brought up to believe. how did most professional sports get turned into slap and tickle fights? stop crying, if a team or player is getting too comfortable physicality will always be the first thing used to counter it. that means when a player is going to the hoop he is getting hit. they are going to earn those points. if this doesnt happen, your team is A) cowardly or B) just doesnt want to win the game. even tho im only in my 20's ive always been old fashion or played that way. in baseball if a player is too comfortable in the box theyre getting a fast ball high and tight. in basketball you never got a free shot at my hoop and you sure as hell didnt win the physical battle against me. ALL SPORTS HAVE HARD CONTACT! if you dont like it go watch a dart game or bowling. those are skill games that dont use contact.

3 words: NO FREE LAYUPS. doc rivers said something along those line after the game and i'm pretty sure he passed the message on to the team.

last game was a disgrace. wade and lebron just waltzed to the hoop freely. the heat had countless of open uncontested layups. making matters worse was the celtics hoorendous f shooting and lack of fire/energy.

i'm sure the ludicrous technical foul calls probably took some confidence/aggressiveness away but it was no excuse as to the display they put on in the 3rd and 4th quarter. it was embarassing seeing lebron just laugh like that in front of kg. the c's might be old n slow but if they have any pride (which i'm pretty sure they do) they'll come out with a little more "pep" tomorrow.

Not entirely sure what your trying to prove with that statement.

Super.

Everyone was crying after ud fouled Habsboro. This is just a soft generation. Someone gets their lunch money stolen and they run to tell their teacher.

Says the fan of LeBron and Wade, two of the biggest babies when they want a call. :rolleyes:

Translation: I don't know that the guy I'm replying to had to leave and couldn't respond in time, and even though he's making an attempt to squash it, I'm gonna be a douchebag and write back a classless comment.
Well, you still haven't responded yet to his post and you've made around 30 posts since your reply to B'sCeltsPatsSox's post, so I'm a bit curious why you haven't responded to it in full yet.

So you say this, but still don't respond to it?
It takes "too much time".

I don't think it was a clear cheap shot, to be fair to Wade. It seemed like incidental contact there. (and I'm not one to always defend Wade, I think he's a dirty player) But that wasn't a cheap shot.

Then again, his statement was misinformed and classless. Saying "Rondo better be careful, last time he got physical he broke his arm" is basically a threat that if the Celtics play physical basketball, they'll get injured, which is classless.

I have zero problem with what Rondo said. He is their floorleader, he needs to be the one bringing this up. If the Celtics don't match Miami's physicality, they stand no chance. You can't just let Wade and LeBron get layups without punishing them.

I would expect the physical play to continue, and increase actually.

Super.

I expect some hard fouls tonight, maybe even a flagrant or two

They're scared to touch LeBron or Wade becauce they are afraid of Haslem

Brandon Bass would eat Haslem for breakfast.

I'd call it more a dirty move by a dirty player that no one respects anymore, personally.
