I keep saying it, Bosh is a detriment to Miami. He needs to be traded ASAP....second tallest player on floor but plays smaller than Cole. Heat need a PF, not another guard playing PF

Good thing your last 4 games are all winnable while ORL has no chance in any of them.

Not sure if its a coincidence but I have noticed the refs refuse to call fouls for Miami in about 7 straight games now...not sure why but it's a bit wierd

04-09-2014, 10:10 PM
I would hate to see the Suns, Mavericks, and Grizzles to miss the playoffs. All three deserves to be in! Now the Knicks, Cavs, and Hawks on the other hand :confused:

Memphis will most likely go on to win this game, but Marc Gasol gets away with the most offensive fouls I've ever seen in one game.

i dont blame lebron for having a hard time here. he's played alot on a back to back and he's done SO much this game because no one else from the heat has done ****

Tony Allen should have fouled out a long time ago as well. Gotta give them credit though; when the refs aren't calling it, it's the best way to play.

04-09-2014, 10:36 PM
the heat should be emberassed for this lose. Only lebron stepped up big time but one player isnt enough to beat a feasty grizzly team

Lebron with back to back games playing 40ish minutes with the playoffs around the corner. I think he's ready for a break.

I hope he lets LeBron ****** Gabrielle Union every night as a thankful gesture for carrying the Heat thus far.

At least Bosh sacks up and suits up for the games. There's a max player in Miami that coasts, doesn't play and lives off his teammates for all regular season.

I've never seen you say anything positive about Wade. Idk why your even complaining about him your not a heat fan and heat fans know they are putting themselves in a position to have a strong playoff run with a healthy Wade. Are you so filled with hate you can't see that.

They do tend to go into Iso mode but its not a healthy way to play in the playoffs.

Noah with his 4th Triple Double of the season tied with Lance for the most this year. 15 points 7-13 from the field to go along with 13 reb 10 assists 2 blocks and a steal the guy is just playing out of his mind he deserves something this year DPOY, All defensive team, or all first team something hopefully he gets the credit he deserves for carrying the Bulls to a potential 3rd seed without Rose and Deng.

Today's literally been the only day in which I have ever posted anything bad about Wade. I usually don't even post about Wade cause I don't really care enough about him to post about him.

FlashBolt

Yeah, he only got the biggest offensive rebound that helped the Heat repeat.

If Bosh performed to his ability and potential, Miami wouldn't have to resort to late game heroics to win games. Bosh is underperforming. He rebounds less than some PG's but gets paid like a superstar. I look at Blake Griffin, Tim Duncan, Kevin Love, Aldridge, Monroe, Milsap, Horford, Lopez, Randolph, Davis, heck.. Even Gasol. Those players grab rebounds and destroy the paint while Bosh doesn't do any of that. He only makes spot up shots and sometimes that doesn't come often. He needs to be able to take his game to another level for Miami to win in the playoffs. There is no reason for him to be out taking threes when he's their tallest player 99% of the time for Miami. It's like he's afraid of contact. What is he averaging? 15 points and 6 rebounds but gets paid the equivalent of a top player? That's the production of a sixth man. Wade is resting up but through 16 games of intense games, I don't think he'll be 100% no matter what anyone says. If Oden, Andersen, Beasley, Mario Chalmers, Battier, and Allen don't perform well, it's going to be LeBron, LeBron, and more LeBron this year. I definitely do see him leaving to be honest. With Wade in and out 1/3 of the year and Bosh being a 20-25 player, there's no way he can win with that squad.
