Found June 15, 2012 on The Bull Gator:
The Miami Heat evened their NBA Finals series with the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night. After winning 100-96, the Heat tied the series 1-1. Unfortunately for us Florida Gators’ fans, neither former orange and blue star had their best nights, but that can be attributed to limited time on the court. Udonis Haslem grabbed four rebounds in 16 minutes; actually a fairly productive 12 if you’re looking at his per-48. It was a plus/minus of -10 that hurt. Haslem only attempted two shots on Thursday night, making one. Mike Miller saw the court briefly, tallying just one minute of playing time. Being that the Heat won, this might be a common occurrence in further games. Both former Gators can still be valuable contributors, but will also see their roles defined if Miami can pull off more victories (and even if they can’t). With Chris Bosh able to play meaningful minutes and Shane Battier doing well, Haslem may find himself only used during certain situations. As for Miller, his minut...

Dwyane Wade: “I’m not that athletic as I was in 2006″

Generally speaking, it’s tough for athletes, especially ones of Dwyane Wade’s caliber to come to terms with the fact that they have lost a step. But in his case, it seems as if Wade, not only knows that he’s lost a little something, but he’s accepted it and understands that he can still be a great player. “I was 24 — totally different,” said Wade, 30. “I’m not...

Chris Bosh’s Baby’s Momma Doesn’t Want Daughter at Olympics Because of ‘Possible Terrorism’; Judge Agrees

Chris Bosh wasn’t so lucky in this regard.

LeBron James' Uncalled Foul on Kevin Durant Erases Clutch Steal That Would Have Done Larry Bird Proud

The end of an NBA game typically is a time for the referees to swallow their whistles. Few fans like to see close games decided at the free throw line -- unless it is their team headed to the stripe, of course -- so except in the rare event that there is a mugging at the hoop, the hardwood in the waning seconds might as well be a New York City blacktop. Some fouls just need to be...
