Big 12 would like to stay in conversation with the big boys just try not to start the false narrative so early
Your article callin LeBron old was either ridiculous or click bait, you're better than that. And TT is a great player, more than just offensive boards, 24 and 12 against Griffin last night. Stop seeing things through your Heat homer glasses. Bleacher Report ain't The Ticket.
its ridiculous to say cavs deserve expectations that heat had. hard to believe you can become a writer with such biased views. are you just a little upset that now you have to actually make real articles now that lebron isnt in miami?? what happen to it was a good thing that lebron was opting out? or bosh too for that matter??
Ethan---Last I knew the Heat play their home "basketball" games off of route 1, Biscayne Blvd in dowtown Miami. Maybe that is South Beach to you, but it sure is NOT to me. In fact the Heat home is closer to Little Havana than South Beach. Possibly some Heat members play "games" at South Beach, but it sure is not the game of NBA basketball. For as long as you have been in the South Florida geography, I kind of wonder how you have not learned where, exactly, South Beach is located.
King LeCramps proving once again he's just borderline retarded off the court.
He seemed to have learned that large "Decision" circuses with the media are stupid. So he does the next-best stupid thing: what he just did:
Another huge media circus he could have greatly minimized by keeping things small and quiet, as most NBA stars do. Private dinner with Riles, etc. Minimum talk to the media. Zero wife tweets. I mean how dumb is it to move your cars out of the house in Miami, the same day this huge media circus is going on?
Now everyone will be pissed, even in Miami if he "keeps his talents" in Miami.. Not to mention back home in Ohio, he will be deserving all the hate he's gonna get and never forgiven after the LeCircus Part II he just came up with. And now off to Brazil for the final, perhaps the only smart move all week! Carlos Iglesia@ChurchCarlos
If I don't hear or read it from you or Ira, it's nothing but noise.
"This 104-87 rout was a root canal, administered by a dentist that kept digging into the box for different drills, and never, ever the Novocaine."
can you stop riding lebron. i know your writing career would be nothing without him but you dont need make article after article on pointless things about him
I'm not on here often -- I should be -- but thanks to Joe and Frank for the comments.
You're right Regi.... the Heat handled it the best way they could. By continuing to play.
