Dang, I haven't seen Karl Malone in forever... Never thought he'd be a commercial guy for Skechers, though...
Indiana's right. they just need to learn to move without the ball, and also, where to position themselves off of one-on-one moves. Bosh needs to set some picks, Bron needs to give and go everytime.
In terms of becoming complete basketball players, this team will force them to work on their weaknesses. Its like the Olympics, where every ball dominant player was on the team. Wheres Coach K?
Its only the first game guys once they get gellin then they will really be scary
Well they dont compliment eachotherm thats just the arsh truth. They can adapt and reform their games to compliment eachother, but how they have played throughout their careers shore isnt gonna fly, at least for this first half. I expect Spoelstra to give them hell in the half time and this 1st 2 qaurters lapse to be farts in the wind.
this is the best ever...The heat are gonna be dead in the weeds come playoff time...
Who knows what kind of rhymes Shaq will be coming up with in the locker room about LeBron and Wade...
Not only is it only the first game, its the first half! I think we're all overreacting to what we're seeing, given that there are 81 more games left, games that include the Cavs, Bobcats, Sixers, and Knicks, so they'll get their practice in against worse teams.
The Heat can still win BTW....
Riley will be back in no time...wait til they lose a few more games early on in the season...and anybody else see Shaq beasting these guys...
LeBron and Wade don't compliment each other at all. They'll have to learn to. It won't be as smooth as a transition as Pierce and Allen.
This is like pairing Jordan with Jordan, not Jordan with Pippen.
LOL EXACTLY TEZO
TO's are killing the Celtics chance at a blow out and making a statement day 1...
The Heat need to play like the USA team until they get some chemistry in the half-court. Aggressive defense run and jump defense, and fast break.
Lebron is a good enough passer to make it work. In all honesty, the Heat have gotten shots. They just havent made &$#%#&@!. But the defense will be there. The fastbreaks will be there. The assists for Wade and Lebron will be there. Once they learn to get shots off of one another... this will be a tough team to stop.
If the Heat continue to play like they did in the first half then spoelstra needs to get ready for his "I want to see my family more" speech
Bosh is so soft, everytime he takes a bump or get fouls he immediatly darts out of the paint lol. Watch yourself he wont stand face to face with a Boston frontcourt player.
stop turning the ball over so much...and another key piece of Fantasy advic...trade Bosh ASAP...those knees aint looking to good...
Any chance Erden gets off the bench? He looks bored.
LeBron is a GREAT passer, but does he understand that he doesn't always have to be the one getting the assist? I don't think he does.
Is Dwayne Wade willing to catch and shoot, or will he always feel the need to put the ball on the floor himself?
I think Bosh will be fine. It's LeBron and Wade that'll have to make the huge adjustment.
Do you think they will score 30 in the second half? And when was a 15 point halftime lead insurmountable in ANY nba game.
And yet Bosh is playing the worst.
30 points, wow. They're all just going one on one. Boston is too good a defenisve team for that.
Playoffs...not against These Celtics or The Magic...they just got out classed the Heat for a whole 24 minutes...
There getting good looks on offense, but their shot just isn't falling.
Yeah the a whole 24 minutes in the first game of the season. Seriously, your propensity for jumping to conclusions is a little overbearing.
Stop overracting. For god sake it was the first half.
Its crazy they're only down by 15
1 question and don't duck it...how much would they be down if the Celtics don't turn the ball over 12 times in the 1st half...
They'd be down more if the Celtics didn't turn the ball over.
The Celtics always let teams get back in it. They're allergic to just knocking a team out when they're wobbling.
It's a statement game on day 1 of the season, they'll finish...
Scarecrow, why would I answer a question that clearly loaded to your point. Thats what we like to call in the journalism business "leading". Republicans do it quite well. Take this for example.
What would the score be if the Heat shot equal percentages to the Celts?
I'll answer for you so you dont have to do the math. If teh Heat shot 45% from the field, 33% from 3 and 100% from the line, it would be 49-45.
See how by changing an important variable I can completely change the reality of the situation?
Sorry, I just dislike how your logic works and giving you my honest question to you loaded, bogus quesion.
We'll see... They should've knocked the Lakers out in game seven, but didn't.
and start this lineup
Jones(miller wen healthy)
and let them run showtime with lbj playing like magic
Shaq's block of Wade... just awesome. Loving this game, Rondo is playing with swagger and my Celtics are winning.
I still say there's another half. I think Miami just has to focus to win this game.
Remember this is opening night....teams usually get blown out on opening right when mass pieces are added/removed.
Has there been an overhyped bore like this that has ever taken place... outside the NFL?
hype like I care, The Heat are down 15 points at the half, who saw that coming but me and a few other guys earlier...keep making excuses I'm starting to think you're Lebron James
No ones hype. I just answered your stupid question. Yes the heat are down by 15. Lets see how the second half goes. I'm more than interested to see how the respond on the road.
Its the first game 81 more to go
starting to sound like a group of Knicks fans...
Your a pro troll, I'll give you that. =)
Pierce is the king of flopping.
Wade doesn't want to chase Ray Allen around those screens. Not with that tight hammy.
really think that this one game which is still in reach for mami will dictate how miami plays the rest of the season you are very mistaken remember you have 3 of the 10 best scorers on one team and with bull&$#%#&@! aside anyone of tehm can go off right now and win
im not saying the will they can but on the other note i love watching miami lose makes me feel good inside
There is 81 more games to go.....they won't go 0-82.
Miami needs time to gel and play as a TEAM. They are not today but it's one game. Gotta look towards tomorrow if this gets any worse.
Shaq taking advantage of his matchups
Shaq is a enormous human being. Jesus... He can pick two people without trying.
Miami does have 3/10 scorers, but neither of them has a complete game to mesh well with one another. They all need isolations and clearouts, and to hold the ball for long periods of time.
i should take that as a compliment coming from a New Yorker...
I don't see anyone calling you a troll...
But wait a second. Noones giving the Celtics ANY credit for this amazing performance.
