That's always your argument with Lebron.
Just remember the guy who took over the game late in the 4th quarter and closed out the Celtics was Lebron James...
LOL. No it isn't. Not if your comprehension level extends beyond that of a 4th grader.
You should probably leave this one in 4ML's hands. He disagrees with me about most everything, but at least he's capable of cogent conversation.
Not true, I agree with you on whole host of issues...but we disagree mostly when it comes to Lebron and Kobe.
...and I hope you know that I really respect your views, even when I disagree with them. I don't dismiss or take your comments lightly.
I love Wade, so I'm not gonna argue against Wade. Wade was special today (and as you pointed out - in this whole series) and kept the Heat in the game, and Lebron was spectacular in the last few minutes.
Many (including you and I) were concerned if Lebron and Wade can play together. I'm not concerned one bit about that anymore. I'm really really happy to see them get past Celtics - but if they fail against the Bulls in conf. finals - all this means nothing.
Ya, I very much respect your opinion as well.
The thing about LeBron & Wade playing together though is that Miami's offense really hasn't been anything special. They're good, but considering that they have two of the best individual offensive players in their era, an all-star level 3rd option + spot up shooters, they don't produce at a high level on that end of the court. I think both guys dribble way too much when they have the ball, and it's led to a team that's really only so-so on the offensive end.
But good God, I can't think of a faster defensive team than this one in my lifetime. LeBron & Wade are the biggest part of that, being that they're probably the fastest SF & SG in the league, respectively. Plus, you have a legit rim-protector in Anthony, and one of the better defensive PGs in the league in Chalmers. That's really where their bread has been buttered.
I'd love to see a Finals matchup of OKC vs. Miami, because OKC is one of the only teams in the league where Miami doesn't have a HUGE speed/athleticism advantage over their opponent. Dallas would be interesting too, because they're the best passing team left in the playoffs.
