LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh are supposed to be the best “Big 3” in the NBA, and for the most part of the regular season, they were.
However, in the Eastern Conference Finals against the Indiana Pacers, two of the “Big 3” have completely disappeared.
When Miami’s stars come to play, the Heat are virtually unbeatable. But when they don’t, the Pacers are the better team in this series.
LeBron James is the best basketball player on the planet, and he could single-handedly beat about a third of the teams in the NBA. But Indiana is a top-notch team, and gives Miami matchup problems across the board.
As good as LBJ is, he NEEDS help from Wade and Bosh.
During the regular season, Wade averaged 21.2 points per game on 52% shooting from the floor. Chris Bosh averaged 16.6 points per game on 54% shooting. Not only were these they both producing, but they were doing it very efficiently as well.
Let’s flip the script now.
In the postseason, Wade is averaging 14.3 points per game a...

If you learn one thing from this year’s NBA playoffs it should be not to try to dunk on Roy Hibbert. Well, Chris Bosh did not take that advice.
Early in the 3rd quarter Bosh went right at Hibbert and Hibbert rejected Bosh’s dunk attempt with ease. Hibbert is just so powerful. Hibbert best block this postseason still though has to be on Carmelo Anthony. Bosh finished the game...
LeBron James made a few big plays in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals but they were not enough to get by the Indiana Pacers.
James left the game after fouling out with 56 seconds to go and the game still within reach.

Now that the series is split 2-2, there are more...
Contrary to popular belief, it turns out LeBron James can be fined for flopping after all.

David West and Lance Stephenson also received fines for embellishing contact during Indiana’s...

Chris Andersen should not have finished last night’s Game 5 playoff game between the Indiana Pacers and the Miami Heat. The officials screwed up by not ejecting him from the game after knocking Tyler Hansbrough to the floor, then shoving him a second time prior to officials separating the two.

Click on photo to read more about an internship with LeBron
I’m really not sure what this internship could lead to, but it would be pretty sweet to work for a LeBron owned entity. I highly doubt that you’d ever even see LeBron, but the idea is still pretty sweet. If you think about all the professional athletes out there LeBron would be up there for internships.

MIAMI (AP) -- Standing on the cusp of the NBA Finals has tended to agree with the Miami Heat in each of the last two seasons. When the Heat have gotten a game away from the title round, they've finished the task as quickly as possible.
