Heat v.s. Mavs

It happened midway through the 3rd quarter, the point I realized this series was hopeless for the Dallas Mavericks:

Dwyane Wade sized up his man, dribbled between his legs, and then off his leg the ball rolled towards half court.

Lebron James rushed to save the ball, picked it up, and began to dribble and size up his man above the 3 point line. Just as Wade had done.

Lebron dribbled hard, and lofted a pass high above his man towards the rim and a soaring Wade, who flushed the alleyoop pass over Brian Cardinal.

Interchangeable superstars. Just nuts.

Bosh = Raptor Raptor = Bosh

In honor of Chris Bosh's shot, this ESPN article on the man, and because a sharp-eyed Bulls fan agrees, here is the only basketball player who WAS his team's mascot. Chris, ya gotta go back to Toronto.

Most INEFFECTUAL Post Move in the NBA today

Winner: Andray Blatche's spin to the baseline. He does not use the defender's power against them primarily because no defender needs to exert much power to prevent Blatche backing them down. As a result, he does not dislodge and get position on his defender for a close shot, NOR does he get separation to go baseline for a reverse (few times he does this it's a weak sauce reverse that rarely has a chance-he's been known to get blocked by the rim).

He kind of spins, and winds up in the same place. Spinning in place. With egg on his face whenever he gets doubled from a soft move.
