Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James finally got to receive what they coveted so much; their championship rings. It’s very fitting that the three of them went towards the end, and that they MVP went last. It’s always difficult to repeat, but their quest got off to a good start on Tuesday night with a win against the Boston Celtics.
BEST OF MAXIM
Doc on Wade's "punk play" comment: "Don't forget about Rondo's elbow injury (in 2011 playoffs)…that was created by Dwyane Wade."— Boston Celtics (@celtics) November 1, 2012
Yeah, cause Dwyane Wade has never done a punk move in his life.
Seriously, I'm sick of Wade already. I never hated him before the Heat got LeBron and Bosh but since then...
The very moment that the San Antonio Spurs won the 1999 NBA championship against the New York Knickerbockers, media-types everywhere took it with a grain of salt.
HoopsDoctor columnist Kevin Burke wrote in his article Did the 1999 Labor Shortened Season Really Count at the time:
"An NBA Championship is an NBA Championship no matter how you slice it. I’m sure “The...
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
Much of the talk about Tuesday night centered on Rajon Rondo’s flagrant foul on Dwyane Wade in the closing seconds of the game. Legler did not have an issue with the play.
Said Legler: “I look at it as a guy...
All this talk about Dwyane Wade whining about Rondo's hard foul had me thinking about how basketball used to be played. You know by now that I read a lot of books on Celtics history. I love reading the story about how the Celtics didn't back down from anyone. Those Celtics teams in the old days had some swagger. I know that part of that swagger came from winning, but...
Dwyane Wade called Rajon Rondo's hard foul in the opener a "punk play" and said that only knowing his children were watching kept him from retaliating. Today after practice, Rondo talked a little about the foul although he wouldn't say too much, asking the reporters if they were trying to get him a fine. But he did say at the end of the interview,
LeBron James may post similar assist numbers to his tenure with the Cavaliers.
The NBA season officially kicks off in just a few short hours ::happy dance:: so it’s only right that we talk about something really important… what music Dwyane Wade listens to before the game! His list is peppered with artists like 2 Chainz, Kanye West and Jay Z but also contains artists like John Mayer- [...]
The super-deep Celtics team that is supposed to create
matchup problems and push the Miami Heat for Eastern Conference supremacy never
showed up. If this was the best the Celtics have to throw at the defending
champions, then the team in green is in trouble.
This is not the final product for the Celtics, however, and
one uneven night in October will not doom their season on...
When Kevin Garnett loses in the NBA postseason, I imagine he locks himself in a 4 x 12 room, transforms into something resembling the Incredible Hulk, except harrier, howls at the moon continuously, and drinks nothing but V8 juice all summer just so he can feel as much pain as possible.Given how much he loathes his opponents (remember, he deleted Ray Allen’s phone number this summer...
LeBron James and the champs. Opening night at Madison Square Garden.
Under normal circumstances, as electric a scene as there is in the NBA.
Things are still far from normal in New York.
Already postponed once by Superstorm Sandy, the New York Knicks will begin their season Friday night against the Miami Heat, not sure what to expect when they take the floor but hoping it helps...
MIAMI - Chris Bosh never has wanted to be a coach. When he sees Erik Spoelstra, it doesn't change his mind.
It's Spoelstra's job to figure how to divvy up minutes on the deep Miami Heat. Obviously, it's better than having stiffs, but orchestrating an overflow of talent hardly is easy.
"I don't want to be in his shoes," Bosh, Miami's starting center...
Take a deep breathe Celtic fans, and repeat after me: "it is only 1 of 82" and you will be okay. Remember there would have been a mini-coup in South Beach if LeBron and his special edition golden Nikes had lost on His championship night.
That is good, but this is about the Celtics and how they fared. So lets begin.
Jeff Green, well it was his first NBA game in over...
