RE: The NBA Thread
Series prediction: I think the Heat are taking the series in 6. The Spurs are the Heat's kryptonite, but the Heat are also the Spurs'. The Heat's style of play also requires a high energy defense, which doesn't favor the Spurs. Spurs have to play ON POINT for every single win. I don't expect their role players to step up the way they did last year.

This is like a boxing matchup. Often, the more talented fighter comes better prepared to the rematch and makes the necessary adjustments to win. The Heat are undeniably more talented, even if their bench is not as instrumental to their success.

Gary Neal won't get them a win this year. Danny Green will be locked down.

Bold statements... but the Heat will take it.

RE: The NBA Thread
The heat are not an improved team. In fact they lost Mike Miller. Ginobili did not show last year except for 1 game. He is playing at a very highly level right now. His passing has been incredible. Dare I say that he has been the best point guard in these playoffs? Dare I say that Manu can be the Finals MVP?

RE: The NBA Thread
The Heat ARE improved, for a few underrated reasons, from least important to most:

Rashard. He's regained his touch. They'll get Miller's production from him.
Bosh's newfound 3 point range. Pulls Duncan out of the paint.
And CRITICALLY... Wade is HEALTHY. Makes Ginobili play defense against him.

RE: The NBA Thread
What is up with these Spurs turnovers? I also believe LeBron should have received a technical for some of those animated arguments on calls.

I guess the Spurs are lucky not to be down 20 with all their TOs. Need one good run by Manu...

Lebron should just ask to be taken out of the whole series.

James didn't look good out there. At some point you have to blame his preparation. Drink water. Eat bananas.

It didn't matter. Spurs would have won anyway with that run at the end.

I've played basketball in Lumpini Park in Bangkok in 37 degrees celcius and 70% humidity. That was pretty bad, so I can sympathize, the key is to hydrate constantly. Probably went through 3 liters in an hour.

RE: The NBA Thread
Cramps are no joke because your whole body locks up. Try playing in an NBA game and exert as much energy as Lebron does, for fuck sakes he already played 33 minutes of high intensity basketball and they're asking him to play 7 more in 90 plus degree heat. These hillbillies in San Antonio need to get their shit together. It's easy to talk shit while sitting on your couch.
