i bet if he did run the court and throw up a very low % shot, there would be people here bashing him for trying to stat pad a few more points in a blowout game and calling him desperate lebrick.


I'm not one of those people, If your coach plays you then you play...If I was Lebron(or any other superstar) than I would try to set up my teammates more in a blowout. I'm not saying Lebron didn't, because I lost interest in the game late in fourth. It may be "stat padding" by scoring in a blowout but if your coach plays you then why not...

Answer me this: Why not shoot the ball at the end of a quarter like every other play does in the playoffs? .9 seconds was plenty of time to get up a decent shot from around half court.

I'm perplexed as to why LeBron played 39 minutes in this game. I turned it off early in the fourth and he was on the bench. It was around a 25 point lead at the time.

Did Philly make a run? If not, why would you not get some rest for what they will hope will be a LONG playoff haul against much better teams?

I don't get it...

EDIT: Had no idea that there was a conversation ongoing about this topic before I made this post.

No. The closest the lead got was 22. The highest was 28 I think

It made no sense. Spo typically overplays LeBron, but this took the cake.

Basically a mindfuck to the Sixers. Even when the Heat are 25 points +, they will keep pounding you until there is no more life in them.

Wow. This is the worst series in the first round. If Miami wins by 40 in game 3 there should be no game 4.

Actually, Game 1 wasn't that bad at all. Neither team played particularly well, but Philly went on a 12-0 run late in the game to pull within 1 before the Heat pulled it out.

The Sixers could win a game in Philly.

i didnt misunderstand at all... you were talking about lebron and how he is was worried about his fg% and how stupid it was .. now at the same time your worrying about his fg% because you believe he shouldve taken the shot...

All's Miami did was take care of business at home..I am pretty sure Philly will be alot tougher on the Road for Heat would not be shocked if Philly won Game 3.
