Found June 03, 2013 on Hoops Addict:
I joined Justin Hull on "The Home Stretch" this afternoon to vent about the mess the Miami Heat find themselves. We talked about why Indiana looks poised for an upset, Dwyane Wade not aging well, Chris Bosh being a ghost and why Miami might be smart to deal Wade or Bosh this summer because LeBron James may bolt in 2014.

Dwyane Wade Says One Individual Can’t Win It All for Heat

Remember D Wade was the mastermind behind the formation of the Big 3. He also envision himself on the same level as LeBron James. He figured LeBron would do all the work and he would be the closer. If the Heat faltered, LeBron would get all the blame and for a while that is exactly how it worked. But, then LeBron became Jay-Z and Wade turned into Damon Dash. It is starting to bother...

Chris Bosh's disappearing act isn't helping the Heat

Chris Bosh was supposed to be one of the Big 3 in Miami. Bosh, himself, even went as far as to say he should be in the Hall of Fame back in January. That's all great and all. I mean, why not? Why shouldn't a top-tier athlete have that much much confidence in their game? They're supposed to be confident, right? Well, Bosh's confidence is fine, but his game needs some...

Wade's knee swollen, stiff after Game 6

Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat says he woke up with swelling and stiffness in his left knee on Wednesday, one day after getting hit in Game 6 of the NBA Finals against San Antonio. Wade missed the start of the second half of Game 6 while getting treatment, then returned. He has no doubt that he will play in Game 7 on Thursday, when the Heat and Spurs will decide this season's...

Miami's Bosh aiming to shake out of slump

The last time Chris Bosh played against the San Antonio Spurs, he was offensively brilliant. It seems like a long time ago. During the Eastern Conference finals, Bosh found himself in a baffling slump, missing 26 of his last 34 shots and not even reaching the double-digit mark in scoring during any of his last four games - the longest such drought for the All-Star big man since...

Chris Bosh confident as ever heading into finals

MIAMI (AP) -- The last time Chris Bosh played against the San Antonio Spurs, he was offensively brilliant. It seems like a long time ago. During the Eastern Conference finals, Bosh found himself in a baffling slump, missing 26 of his last 34 shots and not even reaching the double-digit mark in scoring during any of his last four games -- the longest such drought for the All-Star...

Paul George Dunks on Chris Bosh

The Indiana Pacers forced a Game 7 last night, but the play of the game came when Paul George dunked on Chris Bosh. Late in the 1st quarter George was on the fast break; he dribbled by Norris Cole and threw down a monstrous one hand jam on Chris Bosh. This is George’s 2nd big dunk of the conference finals, earlier in the series he dunked on Chris Anderson. George is turning himself...

Unhappy Pat Riley Photobomb Is Great

Taken during Game 6 by a couple guys who snuck down courtside (full story via Deadspin). Riley is such a smug jag, anyone who can make him look like this is a hero. That’s why I’m nominating Chris Bosh for sainthood. 1 more 9-and-6 and Riles might commit a murder suicide. Parker Pulls For Indiana LeBron Fouled Out??!!?

Video: Pacers’ Paul George puts Miami on a poster in Game 6, LeBron answers

Paul George put Chris Bosh on a poster with this insane dunk in transition late in the first quarter, but then LeBron James answered in a big way.

Miami Heat Out to Strong Lead at the Half of Game 7

LeBron James complained about having to do it all. Dwyane Wade complained about one guy trying to do it all. So far, after one half of action in Game 7 it seems like the Miami Heat got their act together. LeBron has been LeBron so far and the rest of the Heat have stepped up as well. It was close after the first, 21-19 in favor of Indiana, but the Heat exploded in the second outscoring...

Position-by-position matchups for the NBA Finals

A position-by-position look at the matchups in the NBA finals between the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs: CENTER: Chris Bosh vs. Tim Duncan. Bosh had two strong games against the Spurs this season, averaging 20.5 points and 10.5 rebounds, and will focus more on that than his difficult Eastern Conference finals against Indiana, when he shot under 38 percent and averaged a measly...

The Miami Heat Predictably Advance To The Finals

After all the buildup and nonsense over the weekend, of course this series would end in a Miami blowout. What could have been a dramatic will the Heat be able to pull together? kind of game turned into a Miami romp over the Pacers.

Riley Nearly Picked Kaman Over Wade In Draft

Due to the success of the Miami Heat going small in last season's playoffs, Erik Spoelstra further embraced the concept in strategy and in personnel. The Heat had the best regular season record in the NBA and posted excellent numbers, but their lack of size has been an issue against the frontcourt of the Indiana Pacers. Pat Riley was sold on the practice by Spoelstra, though...
