NO MORE AIRTIME
Anyone notice the difference in the NBA Finals right now? Beside the fact that the Thunder are choking and the refs are turning a blind eye (with the good eye trained on the Heat) at the end of the game as usual. The reason the Heat are winning is because Dwayne Wade is being aggressive and as a result the Heat are becoming more and more dangerous. Couple that with the fact that Durant isn’t getting to the line as much as he should and the fact that Westbrook (besides last night because he played like a true baller, and put his team in position to win but no one else helped) and Harden’s play is well, Atrocious; and you get the results you have now which is having Miami leading the series 3-1.
Funny thing about this situation is even if Wade continues to play this way; LeBron will still win the MVP. How in the world do you give the MVP to someone who doesn’t have the mental fortitude to shoot the “Big Shot?” Wade is the guy on that team with ice in his veins; Wade is the guy who LeBron was hiding behind during the lockout; yet, Wade is the guy who no one has faith in because his numbers are down. Don’t get me wrong I am not a fan of Wade’s because he hits the floor more than dust/dirt, but he has that extra gear he goes into where he won’t LET anyone stop him, nevertheless everyone is falling all over LeBron. Yes, James’ numbers are great but look how many times he has the refs hold his hand so he can get to the free throw line. So far every team in the playoffs has attacked the Heat and hardly any of them have shot more free throws than them during a game. Last night Westbrook scored 40 plus points with about 24-30 of them coming INSIDE THE PAINT and he shot a (3) free throws! If Lebron scored that many points inside he would shoot AT LEAST 10-15 free throws.
So you mean to tell me every player on the Heat has a little Mutombo in them? Be serious! Just because they throw their body into people and yell and scream doesn’t make it a foul. Again just because you YELL doesn’t make it right (Stephen A. Smith)! Anyway, I blame this blatant favoritism on the refs and the commissioner because they don’t want anyone to beat the Heat (The so-called “Star- Powered” Team), but as Jeff Van Gundy always says, “It’s a make or miss league”. Now that statement has an underlying definition within it. What he means is if you don’t make your shots then the refs will become involved and if you make your shots you have an excellent chance of winning. We saw it in the 2010 NBA finals Boston (they missed their shots and lost) Vs L.A.; we saw it in last years NBA Finals when Dallas (they made their shots and won) defeated Miami; we saw it in this years Eastern Conference Finals Boston Vs Miami (They made their shots and won); and we also saw it in this years Western Conference Finals Oklahoma City (They made their shots and won) Vs San Antonio.
Yes, I got a little side tracked but this all comes back to Mr. James, the favorite son of the NBA. I don’t mind if someone is better than someone else at something but don’t take the opportunity of winning away from people who are working hard as well. The point of going up against the best is to get better AND win. However if you take away their opportunity of winning that creates animosity and not many folks think clearly when they are angry. I’m just tired of everyone falling all over this guys’ (LeBron) performance. This is the same guy that stated, “I knew I couldn’t defeat Boston myself so I decided to team up with these guys”. How do you admire someone like that? He is posing as a “competitor”. I just hope he understands that in order for his team to win Wade will have to take the clutch shots, PERIOD. I’m done talking about LeBron “The Hairline” James aka Biggest Head Band in the world. I will end it with this:
