Good point..."God Mode" lol... That must be the mode he discovered in Game 6 against the Celtics last year(sorry I know it must bring painful memories but that game has epic for Lebron) However, I am not to worried about wade.. I know he is hurt but even in the Bulls series where his offense was really low, he still found a way to impact the game positively, just like shane battier... that's of course if you believe in +/-. Shane and Wade both had the highest +/- according to Spo for the bulls series. I think the real x-factors for Miami are Shane and UD.
I heard on a sports talk radio down here from Stan Van Gundy (He talks for about 2 hrs on wed) that it looks like to him that Wade is trying to save himself... I think Wade is aware that he is injury prone and that his a bad knee could get worse, but he is less hurt now then he was last year; and he accomplished some great things that post season (after struggling first)... I believe in Wade after all he is a Hero down here (Like the other Paul Pierce for Boston..lol) ... I know he is not the same but he deserves the benefit of the doubt and just like you I hope he has a great series against the Pacers so they could stop talking about him diminishing (at least for a little bit).
Cool man... I am glad we can put all that behind... Sometimes I get a little to emotionally invested into this... Especially since Miami is my home town.. lol
I think the Spurs will come out of the west, and I am also hoping that they do because I think the grizzlies will give the heat a harder time.. not to say the the spurs will go down easily... but yeah I see the spurs coming out of the west in 6. Had the grizzlies still had Rudy Gay, then the story might have been different. I don't see Prince making up for that; although he could.
Let me ask you a question... I think the Heat will win it all this year, but what do you think about the odds Vegas and some of the writer are giving them??... I see some of them reporting odds that are well above 50%... I know we are down to four teams but even at the start of the post season their odds where above 50% for most.. IMO they should probably be closer to 40% now and as low as 25-30% at the beginning of the post season.
Can we call a truce??
Look man, I want to cut this already... Look I am sorry for what ever I said that insulted you but I have felt the same way about some of the things you have said... On a separate note to me Bill Russell is the greatest, something like Babe Ruth... He may not have been the best basketball player of all time... But to accomplish what he has in such a short period is to me what makes him the greatest... with no doubt in my mind
Ok Mr. Pierce well said and nicely elaborated but I don't care if I insult you; if you threaten me by saying don't ever insult my intelligence or else... I want to know what else is... BTW you where the first person to write on my page for no reason so I came back at you when I felt I had to express myself... just like you did when I commented on an article, instead of just replying to my comment on the comments section, you instead felt it was necessary to write a long explanation on my page when a couple of words in the comment section would have been sufficient.
BTW I can agree with you that Bill Russell is the greatest of all time... sorry for the double post I tried deleting it... Also sorry if you think I called you dumb; I don't know that about you; your right... but I will say that these last couple of days you have been some what bitter and biased against the heat; more than usual.
Don't ever insult your intelligence; or what??... That is my opinion on what some of your comments sound like... BTW teams need to adjust to the team they are playing, there is no way Miami will have had a smooth offence when teams like the bulls clog up the paint, they need to adjust to their style of play... The nets did not adjust to the bulls and look who won, the Knicks did not adjust to the pacers and look at what happened; not to mention what has happened in the history of the game. There has been many upsets because the team with less "talented players" plays more physical. So enjoy the Pacers Heat series because its going to be a close and physical one, and I guarantee you that the Heat wont back down from that type of play.

Did not change anything man... You and your snarly little comments... and by little I mean an essay (ever heard of the KISS principle "keep it short and simple" )... you sound like a dumb Bill Simmons
I use to think you had a nice objective view... but now I see you for what you really are.... Lost respect for you.... Everyone likes an underdog; I get that but Miami is doing the same thing that the Bulls do to everyone else; which is play physical, get under the opponents skin to keep them off rhythm, and put the refs in a bad position to call fouls... so why all the hate??
