Weak night for the East. Bucks could use another win on their West coast trip and this game probably more winnable than their next one at Denver.

West has some potential seeding relevant games though.

At what point in LeBron's career do we think he will stop making that he's going to take the half-court+ shot, and, why do any of his teammates pass it to him in that situation? More so, why does he demand the ball? Honest question. I've seen him take less than 5 this decade out of a possible thousand+.

The next time LeBron complains about his teammates, remind him what JR and TT make this year and the next 2. Sorry, VRex.

This will be the last year Paul George ever makes an all-star (If he stays in the West).

Jokic will be taking his spot, rightfully so as he's the superior player in pretty much every conceivable way. This is an embarrassment what he's doing to the Thunder.

Oh, can't stand Bron since 2012 when he turned into a parody of himself. Interesting that you don't/can't disagree with me though ; )

If it makes you feel better I bet on them to come back in this game (don't think Pels shooting is sustainable).

In other news, LOL at Harden and the Rockets tonight at home against the SUNS BACKUPS. I mean wtf? Down 15 entering the 4th. Harden can't hit the rim.

Incredibly impressed with the C's grit and resolve these past 2 weeks. Undermanned and without Kyrie, they have won 6 in a row with wins over OKC, Portland, Utah, and Toronto.

Stevens starting to really cementing his case for COY these last few weeks.

They are going to make Toronto sweat for the #1 seed. Toronto has Cs, CLE, IND this week. Cs have MIL, TOR, CHI. The #1 seed will go to the wire.

Judging by these posts I wouldn't have thought I'd look at the box score to see "Wade: 5-16 +1stl/1blk, 3 TO's" and an OT loss to the Nets at home.

But, I did. And the Heat fall to the 8 seed. Luckily for them it's the East so there is no 9 seed anywhere close to .500+ to take 'em out.

Saric/Embiid/Simmons/Roco/Fultz/Reddick/Bellineli without question... Wade would fall into the TJ/Amir/Holmes area except he makes a ton more.


He scores 11 PPG on 44pct shooting with a 30 pct 3 point shot... Really think about that.

Lol at Belli ahead of him and he cooked everyone you named ahead of him. If you all had Wade you would be a much more dangerous playoff team and he would make Embii even better.

He's in a bench role, had he been starting all year he's probably averaging close to 16-5-5 and he's been a positive impact player when he's on the court. You don't like him though and in your eyes he's been trash for 5 years which is hilarious.

"Boost LeBron."

lol. Why does anyone need to degrade Wade to boost LeBron? That's just pathetic. It's actually the other way around. You've been trying to degrade LeBron to try and boost Wade. It's funny you think Wade is actually still as great as his reputation holds.

Look at Wade's return to Miami. He's been worse than when he was on the Cavs. The guy has a terrible AST/TO ratio and he can't shoot the ball. The NBA league average PER is 15. Wade is below that in this stretch for the Heat and barely above it with the Cavs.

There is no metric where Wade is as good as you try and make it seem. Not any longer. He's reaching the point where his ability to stay on the court is based more on his reputation and feel-good moment rather than logic. And that's not hate. That's called having an objective view. Come bring me facts if you want to defend Wade or quit saying X person takes are 99% terrible when I haven't seen one take from you in regards to Wade (which is every post) make any sense.

I ask for facts and again, you bring up random gibberish. I said Wade deserved to be sixth man of the year at one point. Yes, I did. At one point, DeMarcus Cousins was also healthy. NBA, through the course of a season, changes. Again, I ask for facts. Defend Wade and how "well" he has played because statistically, you have nothing to support his case. I do switch my stance. Because my views change based on what happens. Your views stay the same regardless of what happens and that's why you're always going to be stuck with how "good" Wade is when it should be how good Wade WAS.

Everyone loves Bosh as a person but as a player, there wasn't much to love. He wasn't a great rebounder or playmaker for his teammates. Defense? Forget about it. he was a versatile scorer because he was long, quick, and had a nasty midrange jumper for a big player. He made the all-nba team once in his career and never during that championship run. ONE All NBA team.. it was in 2007 and the 2nd team. remember they said he was a top ten player before joining Miami? No. He wasn't.
