The TRUTH about Sports

LEBRON JAMES IS WEAK

This is the second game in this series between the Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics that Lebron James has had the ball in his hands at the end of regulation with a chance to win it. Game 2, with a MUCH smaller Rondo guarding him, Lebron took a fadeaway 20 foot jumper and bricked it.  Luckily, he had Dwayne Wade and Udonis Haslem to pick him up in overtime and pull of the win.  Today, with time winding down and the game tied, the Heat have Wade pass the ball to Lebron, who instead of trying to create something, dribbles out most of the clock then throws a WILD pass to Haslem who is forced to take a sideways fading 15 foot jumper.  What type of leader is this guy? I’ve never seen anyone be so afraid of having the ball in his hands in crunch time. I used to think that everyone was being hard on the so-called King but after watching these playoffs, I’m selling my stock.  As for Wade, how about jumping into that sorry Marquis Daniels and get three freebies at the charity stripe.  This Heat team might get past the Cs, only because they have homecourt BUT there is no way either one of these teams beat the winner of the West. Long live the King… NOT!!!

Wade Bosh Combo Is a trHEAT; But Might Not Be Enough

So Dwayne Wade is staying in Miami, surprise surprise.  The good news for Wade and the Heat are that they nabbed the 2nd best free agent in the league in Chris Bosh.  It’s a great move for the Heat.  But let me burst this bubble for a second: it’s not enough. Both Wade and Bosh are young and in the prime of the careers, but they’re gonna need some help.  The only other player on the Heat that you would recognize on the street in Michael Beasley, and he’s got a whole mess of off the court problems, let alone he hit a major sophomore slump last year. We all know how horrible Jermaine O’Neal is.  Luckily for him, this Bosh move will send him straight for the bench.  Udonis Haslem is a solid complement but I’m not sure how much of an effect his 15 foot jumpers will have? They do have some potential in Mario Chalmers and Dorrell Wright but I’m not sold on them yet.  Carlos Arroyo is pretty much their most consistent player off the bench.  The Heat have locked in two of the best players in the league for a while but in the east where Lebron, Orlando, and the Celtics reside, they’re going to need a lot more. What are the chances Lebron signs with these guys? 2 out of 3 ain’t bad though.
