First and foremost, I would like to congratulate LB on his pre-playoff NBA Champion knocking mine out of contention on Thursday night. Although I love Dirk and am rooting hard for the Mavericks (along with everyone else), I think the Heat are going to take it. Normally a guy like Dirk will wear out an opponent because you have to chase him all over the floor and guard him everywhere. Even if he wears LeBron out a little, D-Wade is more than capable of picking up the slack on offense.
Now for the entertaining stuff. Don’t get me wrong, the Heat have played tremendous basketball in the postseason and have given everyone reason to forget their regular-season struggles. However, we wouldn’t be doing our job if we didn’t point out some of the flops they have executed to perfection along the way. Joakim Noah called the Heat “Hollywood as Hell” following Thursday night’s game, and the following video of LeBron James flopping on Derrick Rose gives that statement some credibility.
How about the wink to Spoelstra at the end? And this guy wonders why people can’t stand him. Chest bump to Black Sports Online for the video.Google+
