If more modern day fans remember Eddie House's key contributions to the 2008 championship team, they would've loved this week's WTHHT player, Jerry Sichting.
Jerry Sichting (pronounced SEE-sting) was originally drafted by the Warriors in the 4th round of the 1979 draft, 82nd overall. He stayed with the team through training camp only to be cut as a victim of a number's game. He'd briefly try the CBA in Maine and then returned to Indiana to work in a sporting good store. The following season the Pacers conducted a tryout camp and anyone with any aspirations of playing in the NBA was invited to attend. Jerry went and though incredibly out of shape, was good enough to get invited to the Pacers' summer camp in LA. He'd eventually make the team that year as the final cut over Kenny Natt.
By his 3rd year in Indiana, he began to receive some actual playing time. In the 1984 season he played in 80 games starting them all. In 1985 he played in 70 games...

A.B. As much as I hate Lebron James and the Miami heat, this is bush league. Being some 45 year old mid-life-crisis-big-bellied Bostonian who dropped $200+ on tickets and $8+ on crappy beer doesn’t give you the right to throw a beer at a professional athlete.
Be a man and jump on the court and take a swing at the big fella. I would respect that much more. But waiting for Lebron...
Coach Erik Spoelstra isn't saying whether he'll put All-Star forward Chris Bosh back into the starting lineup or keep bringing him off the bench now that the Miami Heat are in the NBA finals.
Bosh started every game he played during the regular season and until he suffered an abdominal injury during the Eastern Conference playoffs, but played as a reserve in the final three...
MIAMI (AP) -- Starting, not starting, it's irrelevant to Chris Bosh right now. He's just happy to be playing again.
Bosh said Saturday that he is planning to come off the bench for the Miami Heat in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Boston Celtics, the same role he had in the last two games of the series.
Bosh missed nine games with a strained lower abdominal...
Kevin Durant knows that whatever happens in the NBA Finals, he and LeBron James will be viewed as being at the center of it, for better or for worse. He recognizes that, he understands that, but he doesn't have to like that. Durant and James have more in common than chasing a championship starting Tuesday in Oklahoma City. Both have become hermits during the playoffs, with James...
Can you feel the Heat T?
Miami Heat legend Alonzo Mourning and his wife Tracy spend the afternoon on the beach in Miami– It looks like Zo could still be out there playing. The Heat could definitely benefit from his interior defense. -TO

MIAMI As much as LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh chafed at the trash talk, the head games and even the pushups each time they have played Boston, deep down they knew there was a reason the Celtics, after putting Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett alongside Paul Pierce had won a title, lost another in Game 7, and never, ever went down without a fight.
The Celtics not only played...
With the Miami HEAT headed to the 2012 NBA Finals versus the Oklahoma City Thunder, a local South Florida company thought it was only right to commemorate the occasion with 16, 18 and 20 foot statues of the big three.
Prime Time Amusements, a global operator, seller and event renter of video arcade machines and simulators, made Miami’s biggest sports figures – LeBron James,...
LeBron James returns to the NBA Finals this week, one year after the Heat lost to the Mavericks in disappointing fashion.
Well, it’s all over for the Celtics. However, an enemy of many Celtics fans had some nice things to say about head coach Doc Rivers. LeBron James told ESPN’s Doris Burke, after the Heat defeated the Celtics 101-88 in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals, that he thinks River is “one hell of a coach.” He commented on how well Rivers prepares his team. James closed out the...
It’s the finals every body wanted.
LeBron James versus anti-LeBron James, aka Kevin Durant. The makeup of both the Oklahoma City Thunder and Miami Heat could not be any more different.
Miami built their big-3 through free agency in the summer of 2010. James and Chris Bosh upped with Dwyane Wade, which of course prompted this. Meanwhile, just days after...
Just when you thought that the world of YouTube were out of ideas of making parody videos about Heat star Lebron James, you would be wrong.Check out this clip as Daniel Aruajo parodies Chris Crocker's "Leave Britney Alone" video by doing his own version called, "Leave Lebron Alone".So, get your popcorn ready and be ready for the whining to begin:
Win or go home… so many implications for the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat in tonight’s game 7. Win or loss, the CLNS Post Game Crew will have all the angles covered for you. We hope that you will join us to celebrate or call in to commiserate. Either way, Celtics fans have been united [...]
