Can Anyone Beat The Heat?

Throughout this season people have said the Heat are shoulders above the rest and can’t be beaten. Me and my partners, Kenton13 ( http://wp.me/p33YLP-71) and AllenRmon ( http://wp.me/p33YLP-5A) are here to debate that claim.

Can Memphis, San Antonio or Indiana beat the Heat?

Kenton:
Yes. I think that either team could, but I feel like the Spurs have the best shot because they can score.

Ryan: I understand that, but i feel like Memphis has a better shot because of their defense and the bigs they have downlow.

R’Mon: NO!!!! When the Heat are on their game and playing their pressure defense, they are virtually unstoppable. Not to mention they have the best player in the world (just a thought).

Kenton: When anyone of these teams are on their game, they’re hard to beat!

Ryan: Fair enough, but Chicago did provide a minor blueprint on how to beat the Heat!

R’mon: Not really they eventually got beat at their own game. Miami can get physical too!

Kenton: Miami physical? I find that comical. Miami doesn’t like getting roughed up. With Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol under the basket Miami might not be able to handle it.

Ryan: Miami can get physical. Just not as much as Memphis or Indiana.

R’mon: Didn’t they handle it last year for two straight rounds against two physical teams, (Celtics and Pacers?) So you guys are factually incorrect. Sounds like a bunch of foolishness to me.

Kenton: But the Heat haven’t played big men like Randolph, Gasol and Duncan before. Big men who can go out there and get it for themselves.

Ryan: Honestly if Miami struggled with Noah and Boozer (laughs,) David West and Roy Hibbert are going to abuse them.

R’mon: Yes, but at the end of the day they will have a hard time defending Miami as well.

Kenton: True, it’s going to be hard for a team to beat the Heat, but I think it’s a possibility that someone can.

Ryan: All in all Miami can be beaten. It’s just a matter of will Indiana an Memphis stay true to their game when matched up against Miami. San Antonio plays too fast which would be disastrous in a series against the Heat.

R’mon: Well I don’t think anybody can I just can’t see it.

Will The Flower Ever Blossom

Enough of the games already! Are you going to play or not? Stop saying you don’t know. Stop leaving it up in the air. Stop holding your fans hostage! Just make up your damn mind! If you’re going to play do it. If you’re not going to play just come out and say it. We’re all tired of waiting!

You were medically cleared to play two and a half months ago; what’s the hold up? You claimed you weren’t confident in dunking and cutting, but now you’re doing that all the time in practice. You your hamstrings were burning which is why you didn’t play, but you’re still practicing hard and not taking it easy. You later said you felt discomfort in your knee area. My question is why did you still practice on it?

Right before the Playoffs started we asked you if you were going to return. You answered by saying, “I don’t know it’s in God’s hands.” And then just the other day we asked again and you claimed you have had problems with muscle memory. How in the HELL do you have that problem? You’ve been playing ball since you were a child; you’ve been practicing for over two months, warmup before the game and you still have the audacity to say you lack muscle memory! Give us a break! If you don’t want to play SAY IT!

Dwight Howard came back early from injury; Metta World Peace came back from injury early; Iman Shumpert, who suffered the same injury is already back; Blake Griffin played through an injury; Chris Paul played through an injury; Steve Nash attempted to play through an injury; Stephen Curry has an injury; D-Wade has an injury; David Lee who was suppose to be out for the rest of the postseason came back early! And that’s not even half of the people that are playing through or came back from injury.

Rajon Rondo is itching to play. You don’t think he’s a franchise guy? Steph Curry is playing on bum ankles, with one being aggravated again. Is he not a franchise player? The list goes on. Great players return from injury early, especially when their team is need! How are you going to call yourself a franchise player when your franchise needs you now?

Noah is playing through Plantar Faciitis; Nate Robinson is extremely sick; Hinrich is battling an injury that’s keeping him in and out the lineup; Deng is hospitalized; Taj is injured; Hamilton is injured; Boozer is banged up. How can you just sit and watch them fight and play thru the injuries and sicknesses, and say you’re not ready to take the floor? You’re easily their healthiest player! Even if you’re not “100%” you could still come in and provide 5-10 minutes max. Elite players, franchise guys, and superstars will do whatever it takes to help their team win. We see Kobe do it all the time; we watched Dirk do it; we watched Mike do it. Now its time to you see you, Derrick Rose, do what other franchise guys do. And that’s coming through when it matters most.

Forget the past and don’t worry about the future! Your team needs you now!

The Chicago Pests?

LET THE PESTERING BEGIN!!!! The Miami Heat will inevitably play the thorn in their side for the past couple of years ..the gritty,ruff rugged,and very annoying Chicago Bulls. I don’t care who you are if you are a Heat fan you were the biggest Brooklyn fan tonight, but alas the Bulls won. They won even though they had multiple injuries including players with the flu.

It should be a very interesting and grind-it-out series, but that’s the last thing Heat fans wanted to experience at this point in time. Yes it would look better on the Heat’s résumé if they were to pull out yet another championship which nobody would be shocked. Though Lebron James and Dwyane Wade say they don’t care who they were going to play but I’m sure in their subconscious mind they were rooting for the Nets.

The Bulls present the Heat problems in a multitude of areas. One of them are the Heat’s undeniable weakness REBOUNDING! The Heat were ranked dead last in rebounding this year and the four times they played the Bulls they pounded the Heat on the boards mercilessly and Miami had no answer. The main culprit of this rebounding massacre was none other than Carlos Boozer.

Everybody knows that when a team plays the defending champs they elevate their game to another level. This means they are going to hit shots they wouldn’t have even dreamed of against other teams and they are going to have that chip on their shoulder. No team has shown that more than Chicago this year.

Remember this is the same team that ruthlessly ended the Heat’s incredible 27 game winning streak. They were also the only team during that streak to really overpower the Heat and really get physical with them, so much to the point where Lebron lost his composure and handed out his own punishment. The Bulls showed that night that they are not afraid of the Heat.

It should be a real tooth and nail series and could go to as much as 6 games, considering D-Wade will not be as healthy as he would like to be but if the Heat stop Boozer from getting 20 and 20 every game and hit threes on a consistent basis they could end it really early, but just know the Bulls are nothing to play with.
