That is a boss site Bakes. Very heavy on individual plays and match-ups though, less on overall strategy.

Miami doesn't really have and offensive setup right now to allow the big three to be a true triple-threat. Maybe Riley should have coached  ::)

Still trying to figure out how Dallas is able to make the points dry up in the 4th qtr. That's 4 games in a row they've been able to switch off Miami's offence. When it happens is a strategic decision, but even though Miami know's it's coming, they don't seem to have any answer.

Excuse me :)

Down the stretch isn't really about strategy as much as it is about execution of set plays. And Dallas has been good at them all season and continue to be good at them. When you have Dirk and can spread the floor with shooters and have well-practiced set plays, it's tough on the defense.

That old guy in the bow tie, I think is a former assistant coach of the Houston Rockets when they won 2 championships and now he's with Miami. He's always very stylish and dresses up as if he's a player or even pimp. Never knew his name but always seen him on the bench.

Anyway Dallas do have plays in the 4th where they stretch the court to draw defensive players out by moving the ball outside the 3pt line, running picks and most importantly hitting their shots. They execute well and have been doing so throughout the playoffs. Miami does well to stay in the game but they become stagnant in the final 3-4 mins. Lack of experience maybe??? Who knows but they have to design some better plays to get points in the paint intead for jacking up shots in the end of the game.

LeBron basketball IQ is still very low and from game 2 on you can see as much. Game 4 showed perfectly how LeBron cannot/is not at the next level. Wade took the game to the next level and LeBron could not match it, so he had to be a role player and look on.

With Wade out for Game 5 at a crucial juncture, LeBron again could not maintain the level of the game that Wade had elevated it to. Maybe in a couple years he will get there, but this series has shown that 1) He can never be better than MJ or Kobe and 2) that LeBron needed Wade more than Wade needed Lebron.

If Miami are to move on and win this thing it will be inspite of "King" James.

Dat "old guy" is Keith Askins.. and he go cuss allyuh fuh calling him "old".  He was part of the late 90s Heat teams that used to tussle with the Knicks.  He was their defensive stopper back in the day and if I remember correctly he's a member of the NOI, hence the bow tie.

LeBron basketball IQ is still very low...


I hope you realize you on ah island by yuhself in de entire basketball world (Cleveland excepted) on that one, eh?

As always, I don't know what I talking about. Guess I will have to stay on that Island by myself. While D.Wade trying hard to win a game, LBJ trying to indulge him in Children games *cough* *cough*  Deflecting his shortcoming with some comical theatrics.

Fella I never tell yuh yuh doh know that yuh talking about, that is insecurity whispering in yuh ears not me... I just telling you that you (and his detractors) would be the only ones who follow this game to say LeBron James doesn't have a high basketball IQ.  You can see it in how he reads and plays the game... the passes he makes, the way he gets teammates involved offensively... his defensive understanding and positioning are incredible.  Not to say that he's perfect... it is clear he still needs to work on certain things, but to question his baskeball IQ... you'd have to come with some really convincing proof to convince any objective person of that.

Your criticism of the "*cough* *cough*" incident is also revealing... you say that James using that to deflect his shortcoming... when in fact it's Wade who instigated it (blown out of proportion as it is).  James clearly is going to be criticized no matter what he does.  He clowns with teammates in Cleveland and take some imaginary pictures before games... he immature and not taking the game serious enough.  Walk off the court against Orlando two years ago without shaking hands... he unsportsmanly.  Lose against Boston last year... he quit.  Win against Boston this year.. he celebrate too much.  Playfully jab Wade in the abs against Dallas in Game 3... he celebrate too early.  Struggle in Game 4... he invisible in the clutch.  Have a triple-double in Game 5... not enough, he need to do more.  He baskeball IQ low... he deflecting.

When you really listen to the criticism you see that is just petty gripe after petty gripe.  But that comes with the territory... when it's all said and done,  and barring injuries or something else unforeseen, he'll emerge in the end as one of the greatest ever.

Me I eh insecure. I don't know much about basketball other than LeBron can NEVER be better than Kobe. Man all them excuse for someone who suppose to be KING of the NBA. The fella eh do nothing in this finals, Wade been the man setting the pace and getting things done. Is either you are good or you are not. Talk and Hype can only get you so far.

We will see tonight.

James went to Miami so he wouldn't have to take on the responsibility of being the man. So this showing shouldn't be a surprise. As much as I don't like him Kobe is an assasin whereas James is the lookout man for the assasin.

I doh have time fuh de bandwaggonist Mavs fans who now finding dey voice to criticize LeBron right now... he will have many more opportunities to come.  Time to leave the spotlight where it properly belongs, on the Dallas Mavs.  Extremely happy for my boy Dirk, more than anything.  Happy still for Kidd, Terry, Chandler... man like Brendan Haywood and Caron Butler... and de Boricua Barea... on National Puerto Rican Parade Day no less!!  After party still jumping in Manhattan.

Then there's Mark Cuban... validating my support of and faith in him.


- 13 Fines for keeping the NBA honest about its officiating: $1,665,000

- 4-year contract to keep your German All-Star in Dallas: $80,000,000

- Winning the first NBA Championship in franchise history... and insisting that franchise founder Donald Carter share in the moment: Priceless

For some NBA teams there are owners who try and pretend they're above it all, for the rest of us, there's MC... Mark Cuban!
