It's what happened when you are an extremely talented passer, you're throwing up bricks and your superstar buddy got it going. Shall you keep shooting the ball or let the guys with the hot hand throwing it up? Bosh and Wade got it going and LeBron didn't. It's only natural that you pass the rock to the guy who is on fire. You know what'll happen when he kept throwing up brick and the Heat lost? Exactly what happened when Kobe kept shooting with his cold hands and the Lakers lost. Everyone would be like: "Why the fuck LeBron took so many shots while Wade and Bosh got it going?"
Everyone is tripping over this game. The fact is Dallas barely won, at home.
I don't agree with this whatsoever...LeBron is a freak of nature.. he can drive to the net with EASE yet he shoots stupid 3pointers with 2 seconds to go and try to be a hero and put the "dagger" to the game... Who knows what the outcome would have been if say he drove to the net and scored a couple layups/freethrows or whatever.. we'll never know. I guess the Mavs are happy for sure to see LBJ just being a passer and not scoring but just let Bosh and Wade score LOL
and the fact is, both teams are good and it will be close games no matter what.. it's the fng finals for cryin out loud...I doubt we'll see any blowouts anytime soon...unless LBJ and co. goes crazy tonight.
Well, I don't ever see Michael Jordan shuts down from being aggressive and drop the dime for Scottie Pippen to take over because he is on a cold shooting streak. Drive to the hoop and make some free throws for god sake.
Well you can never compare LeBron and Michael. They don't play under the same coach or the same system. The closest comparison is Kobe and Michael because they play a similar position, under the same best coach ever coach the game, under the same triangle system, having the same type of sidekicks. Let's leave it at that.
To me, it's just one bad game. LeBron tanked it and Miami almost won. It's now a best of 3 with 2 games in Miami, Dallas knows the pressure is on them despite all the "experts" saying 50 this 50 that.
And this is exactly why not winning this year is not a failure. 3 alpha dogs who never play with each other in the league come together. Put yourself in that situation. Do I shoot the ball when I'm bricking it (when you aint feeling it, making layups and dunks aint even that easy anymore, the hoops just get smaller and smaller, the driving lane got denser) or do I pass to the other 2 alpha dogs who are on fire. You can't compare that to Michael's situation. Michael has always own that Bulls team, LeBron is the newcomer here.
And do I need to remind you that whenever Kobe hogged the ball and throwing up bricks, going like 10 for 30, people would cry like little bitches why didn't he pass the ball to Pau or Drew who are on fire.
The Michael comparison is irrelevant. Dare I say whoever bought into that kind of comparison don't see things both ways.
Dallas Mavericks played great today, and although LeBron had a triple double, he wasn't there offensively in the 4th quarter again! One win away for Dallas now, lets go Mavericks! They have to close it out in game 6, cause game 7 is going to be a coin flip, and everyone knows LeBrons going to go off sooner rather than later.
"If you ask Lebron for a dollar, he'll only give you 75 cents. He never gives you the fourth quarter."
The Heat still have home court advantage. Last year the Lakers were down 3-2 with both game 6 and 7 being at staples. Terry and JJ both had good games at the same game for the first time in the series and the Mavs barely won. What's alarming is that the Mavs are getting away with putting Kidd on James as he has no post up game and sticking Marion who can bother Wade with his length.
