LEBRON JAMES IS GOING TO THE HEAT!!!

Lebron James has chosen the Heat.  Everyone take a deep breath.  This is GREAT for the NBA.  Sucks for Cleveland.  But let’s all remember that this is a BUSINESS  First of all, he’s getting about $30 million less by going to Miami.  But hey, the guy wants to win and you can’t blame him for that.  I cant hate on the guy for leaving and going to the Heat.  I do respect him for changing, because I would’ve done the same thing.  Who the heck wants to live in Cleveland.  I might have chosen New York over Miami just cause I love NYC.  But the fans that are burning his jersey in Cleveland, GET A LIFE.  Cleveland Owner Dan Gilbert throwing Lebron under the bus is just a bushleague move. 3 hours ago, Gilbert would’ve given his left nut to have Lebron re-sign with the Cavs.  Frankly, he still will. Talk about an angry ex-girlfriend.  This isn’t war.  There was no betrayal, no desertion. Lebron is an ATHLETE, not a soldier.  He plays basketball.  Gilbert is pissed off because his team just loss 50% of its net worth. I do think that Lebron’s 1 hour special was a slap to Cleveland’s face but at the same time, let me remind you that this is a BUSINESS. He probably got paid big bucks for it, and to be honest with you, the guy’s down $30 mill, so he needs to make it up somewhere.  Lebron chose the Heat because he wants to win.  That’s what athletes do, win. He is playing with Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh.  Their point guard Mario Chalmers is going to be one of the most improved players next year because of these additions. They dumped that bum Jermaine O’Neal and traded away Michael Beasley. Don’t hate Lebron for leaving.  You can hate him for quitting on his team during the playoffs.  But don’t hate him for going to a better team, better city, better situation.  I have a gut feeling that we’re going to hear some dirt on Lebron over the next few days.  This kid’s had a super-clean image for the past 7 years.  There have to be some skeletons in his closet. And I’m sure someone in the Cleveland organization is gong to leak some stuff out. Stay tuned, this sage is FAR from over.  By the way, Jim Nance, worst invterviewer ever.

Miami Heat: From Promising to Broken Promises

miami heat onthebuzzer.comHow the hell did the Miami Heat get so bad? Talk about father time pulling a fast one over our eyes.  As of right now, they have the 2nd worst record in the league at 8-29.  They’re worse than Memphis, Seattle and EVERY team in the Eastern Conference, including folks, the New York Knicks.  Dwayne Wayne is injured.  I get it.  Shaq is old. I get it.  Ricky Davis is a no good thug. Truth.  Jason Williams…well his nickname “white chocolate” says it all. But they got rid of Antoine Walker.  Shouldn’t they be better?  Unfortunately they also traded away Wayne Simien, who I though had some potential. The real Udonis Haslem has reared his head.  Then again, offseason pickups like Smush Parker and Luke Jackson probably aren’t helping the cause either. Sure there’s some promising young talent like Daequan Cook and  Dorrell Wright, but this team is a mere fraction of that championship team a few years ago.  As for the heart of the Heat, it left the stadium the day Alonzo got injured.  Heat fans, enjoy the cellar of the NBA.

The Heat is ON!!!

pat riley onthebuzzer.comThe Miami Heat have become one of the worst teams in the league, overnight.  This team went from a young superstar surrounded by a group of seasoned veterans to an injury prone star surrounded by a bunch of has-beens.  Shaq was great.  Sorry, but it’s true.  White chocolate Jason Williams is a great blacktop player. Ricky Davis…Ricky Davis, need I say more. Udonis Haslem is a modern day Elden Campbell and well, there you have it in a nutshell, your Miami Heat.  I said it before, it was a mistake to force out Stan Van Gundy and well Riles can go down in flames with this team.
