I really think Spoelstra deserves a ton of blame for inexpicably replacing James Jones in the rotation with Mike Miller in the middle of the playoffs when they were absolutely rolling, as well as waiting far too long to bench Bibby.

A ton of blame for benching...James Jones? After Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals?

The lack of James Jones' James Jonesiness was a difference in this series? Really?

Yeah spolestra is gonna get blame but in reality the Heat are definitely a year ahead of the curve. The Heat got beat by a better "team" that was very well coached.

I think Spolestra will go back and review the whole series and learn a lot for next year. You can't fire him for Lebron under achieving 3-4 games in a finals series. You can't even blame Wade for choking up either bc his turnovers wouldn't have been so crucial had Lebron been Lebron.

One thing that did look bad for Spolestra was how confused the Heat looked at times on offense. I see a lot of teams copying the Mavs defensive schemes next year against the Heat and will realize spolestra wasn't bad, but the Mavs coaching was just great.



Bingo.

At times their ball movement was too quick and perfectly timed for the Heat to react to contest or block any shots.

Also to add that practically their whole team was aim-botting from the 3pt line.

It seems like everyone expected them to win this season.

Of course people expected them to win this season. This is the most talent that's ever been added to a roster from one season to the next...in addition to a superstar that was already there...and they're all in their prime.

Yeah it wasnt even the weakness of the rest of the team that did them in. It was mostly Lebron underachieving the whole series. I mean even Chandler was in foul trouble so it wasnt like their size beat the Heat. The Heat role players stepped it up in the playoffs.

Lebron stepped down.

Hi guys.

another reason why Dirk shouldnt be a champion
found this stat on twitter...

timkawakami Wow. RT @vgoodwill Here's a shocking stat: LeBron 27 ppg in season, 18 in finals..largest differential in NBA history
so i heard cuban went ham and bought hella bottles at the club last night.. including an $80,000 bottle of ace of spades..
such an epic meltdown last night, i loved it, watched the game with 2 friends who are heat fans (well really just lebron fan boys) and they were so quiet it was funny. i'm not a lebron hater, but i do hate the super teams, the more often teams like dallas and my 2004 pistons shock the world the better it is for the nba. after all since 1984, 8 different teams have won the title.

I wouldn't say Lebron is in his prime. I think it is obvious he's got a lot to learn in terms of the mental aspect of taking over a game. He's still only 26. The age isn't really an excuse for this but it is obvious that mentally, in terms of control, he is lacking a lot.

Against Chicago...

Eh, kinda hard to judge w/ the pictures you provided...first two are from before game...second two are after game after hes been sweating and busting his ass.

that and the 1st two pics seem to be staged pics (wouldn't doubt if make up was provided) while the 2nd two seem to be more realistic.

I guarantee if you saw LeBron right now, he wouldn't look the way he does in the second two pictures. Those are after games. Take a look at anyone before and after they go to the gym.

Damn... he has always looked really old for his age, but he does look like he aged quite a bit this year. I was thinking he looked really old during the press conference yesterday. I'm sure he has been stressing during the finals. This will haunt him big time until he wins a ring.

Why didn't LeBron go to college? Because he can't pass the Finals.
