Get dunked on like a Bosh. It looks like Bosh wanted to get out of the way in the middle of jumping.
Dwyane Wade throws down a mean dunk. Too bad he didn’t get to dance when the game ended.
Kobe Bryant goes back on the court and practice his shots after losing to Miami last night. Those extra jump shots in practice will definitely prevent him from taking 20 contested jumpers in the fourth quarter.
After getting humiliated by the Spurs, LeBron James tweets about being in an imaginary war.
20+ games left in phase 2. I’m ReFOCUSED! No prisoners, I have no friends when at WAR besides my Soldiers.
His refocus is realizing he should be Robin to Dwyane Wade’s Batman. Chris Bosh is Alfred the butler, of course.
Chris Bosh went 3-11 from the field and only got 4 rebounds in 40 minutes of playing time. This is what he had to say.
“Was I effective today? It’s common sense. I think it’s evident. I just have to get it where I’m effective,” Bosh said of a lack of low-post touches, having spent much of this season as a prop for James and Wade. “I have to get it where big guys get it. Then, I feel I can start helping out this team more.
“I’m effective down in the low-post area. That’s where I need to start getting the ball. I need to be assertive and demanding.”
Bullshit excuse. Kevin Love spends as much time if not more on the perimeter. No one is asking him to rebound like Love or Joakim Noah. He should be getting 17-8 every night. Get some damn tip-ins and stop complaining.
And Bosh has never been an actual low post player. He’s always been a high post jump shooter his whole career. Miami is sorely missing Udonis Haslem.
Chris Webber is on point. Though I’d say the blame rests more on the players at this point. You can’t blame coach Spoelstra for the big 2.5 failing at clutch times.
Ron Artest keeps frontin. Everyone knows you can’t hug your therapist!

When the locker room first opened to reporters after the game, Stoudemire and Anthony were bantering and laughing about players on the Miami Heat crying after their loss earlier Sunday to the Chicago Bulls, with Stoudemire fingering Chris Bosh(notes) as the watery-eyed one (although Bosh, when asked by reporters in Miami whether he had cried, said he almost had but did not).
“I heard Chris Bosh was crying tears,” Stoudemire said.
“Tears?” Anthony asked.
“Yeah, tears,” Stoudemire replied.
“Wait ’til I call him, man,” Anthony said. “I’ll be like: ‘What are you doing?'”
Very appropriate response for two very competitive players. Heat deserve to get clowned for this soft shit. This is a regular season game. C’mon! Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, and all the other greats are shaking their head in disgust at the Heat.
LeBron James is a great athelete, without question. But he epitomizes the arrogance and self-entitlement plaguing players today. The big 2.5 talked about winning multiple championships even before playing a single game. Earlier this season, Bosh said he didn’t want to practice. The difference between Kobe Bryant and LeBron James is Kobe puts in work and studies the game. Even after 8 years, LeBron is still getting by on pure physicality. He still hasn’t worked on his jump shot. As a result, he’s been exposed for failing in clutch situations these past few games. With the game against the Bulls, LeBron shouldn’t have taken that shot when everyone on his team was open. LeBron is known to strong arm his coach and calling his own play so I wouldn’t doubt that it was his call.
