Captian Kirk heading back to the CHI
Celtics emerge as serious suitor for Courtney Lee, Rockets open to sign&trade
Celtics will arguably have the best/deepest backcourt in the league IF they can get this guy.
How would the Heat have a better backcourt than the Clippers or Celtics (if the trade happens)?
Chris Paul > Wade
Bledsoe => Chalmers
Billups&Crawford > Allen
Rondo = Wade
Courtney Lee&Terry > Allen
Bradley > Rio
Be reasonable here.
I DOUBT BRADLEY, BLEDSOE, OR RANDY FOYE CAN SCORE 25 POINTS IN THE FINALS SO THATS ALREADY MARIO>>> BLEDSOE,FOYE,LEE,BRADLEY
WADE LAST YR WIT A BROKEN KNEE>>RONDO AND CP3, I DONT WANNA IMAGINE WADE AFTER THIS KNEE SURGERY WHEN HES BACK TO NORMAL, OH I KNO SOME GUYS WHO CAN
AND RAY ALLEN WIT THE ANKLE INJURY SHOT 45% FROM 3, NOW SINCE HES DONE WIT THE INJURY HES GONNA SHOOT 60%
RAY ALLEN>>TERRY & CRAWFORD
CANT WAIT TIL RIO PUNKS ALLEN

You just posted a old ass video by the worst sports analyst who thinks Tebow is the best QB in the game? GTFO.WADE LAST YR WIT A BROKEN KNEE>>RONDO AND CP3, I DONT WANNA IMAGINE WADE AFTER THIS KNEE SURGERY WHEN HES BACK TO NORMAL, OH I KNO SOME GUYS WHO CAN
Chris Paul put up 20pts, 9asts, 2.7+ stls per game. He was apart of the NBA All First team, NBA All Defensive Team, 3rd in MVP voting, and led a lottery team the previous year to the 2nd round of th playoffs while injured. Chris Paul > Wade.
Rondo was dominate in the playoffs.
17.3 ppg / 12 apg / 6.7 rpg / 2.4 spg / .1 blk / 3.8 to 46.8 fg% / 26.7 3pt% / 70.9 ft%
Accounts for 48.4% of the Celtics' 89.6 ppg.
824 total points, 43.4 per game.
Rondo = Wade.
Plus, he had 3 triple-doubles.
Terry & Crawford are both better all around players than Allen right know. Name a advantage he has over these two other than 3's?AND RAY ALLEN WIT THE ANKLE INJURY SHOT 45% FROM 3, NOW SINCE HES DONE WIT THE INJURY HES GONNA SHOOT 60%

Yo MAn, T-MAc sucks....he's an injury-prone bitch. Why is he all up in your sig homie?
Greatest Finals performances: No. 1
1. Dwyane Wade, Miami, 2006
It's hard to overstate how awesome Wade was in leading the Heat to their lone championship, particularly in the final four games when Miami rallied from a 2-0 deficit to stun the Mavs.
Wade started the comeback by leading the Heat back from a 13-point fourth quarter deficit in Game 3, scoring 12 points in the final 6½ minutes to send the game to OT. He also made the biggest play of the series with his crazy dribbling foray to the rim at the end of overtime in Game 5 that -- controversially -- earned a whistle from referee Bennett Salvatore and a trip to the line for the winning free throws.
For the series, Wade averaged 34.7 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 2.7 steals -- and this in a slow-paced series (neither team cleared the century mark in regulation in any of the six games). His basket attacks were so deadly because the Mavs couldn't stop fouling him. Wade shot a whopping 97 free throws in the six games -- the most of any player since the merger -- including 25 in Game 5.
Overall, Wade's 33.8 PER is easily the best of any Finals performer since the merger. While it seems strange to have somebody besides Michael Jordan in the top spot, the truth is Jordan never dominated a Finals to this extent. At the time, many called Wade's performance Jordanesque. It turns out they might have been selling him short.
Greatest Finals performances: No. 2
2. Michael Jordan, Chicago, 1998
If any Finals performance can be defined by a single image, it's this one: Jordan at the free-throw line in Salt Lake City, simultaneously holding his form on the game-winning basket in the clinching Game 6 and waving goodbye to the game of basketball … at least for a while.
This would be his final effort in a Bulls uniform as well as his last championship. Jordan was huge in both of Chicago's road wins -- victories the Bulls needed, since Utah had home-court advantage -- with 37 points in a 93-88 Game 2 win and 45 in the clincher. That included the final two baskets, bracketing a strip of the ball from Karl Malone and helping Chicago overcome a debilitating back injury to Scottie Pippen.
Jordan's numbers in the other games weren't too shabby, either, as he averaged 33.5 points and nearly 12 free-throw attempts per game overall. His 30.8 PER for the series is superhuman by anyone else's standards, especially in the Finals. And because of how good he was in the most important moments, his performance earns the No. 2 spot on the list.
Greatest Finals performances: No. 3
His averages of 24.2 points, 17.0 boards and 5.3 assists were impressive enough, but what really sealed the deal was his defense.Duncan averaged 5.3 blocks per game for the series, the most of any player since the merger
Greatest Finals performances: No. 4
4. Michael Jordan, Chicago, 1997
Yes, Jordan produced another strong series overall, but the reason this one resonates is because of the Flu Game.
With the series tied at 2 and Utah looking to steal the momentum, Jordan was weak and nauseated and in no shape to play Game 5. Somehow, he still did.
And man, did he play well. I would argue it is still the most amazing performance I've ever seen, a night when the Jordan legend went to yet another ridiculous level. Fighting exhaustion and dehydration and practically needing to be carried to the bench during timeouts in the fourth quarter, Jordan led the Bulls back from an early 16-point deficit by scoring 38 points in a 90-88 victory that gave them the upper hand.
He surrounded that heroic Game 5 effort with two game-winning plays. In the opener, he hit a game-winning jumper at the buzzer over Bryon Russell and finished with 31. And in the clincher, during a 39-point, 11-rebound effort, he waited for a double-team and found a wide-open Steve Kerr for the series-winning jumper.
For the series, Jordan had another amazing line -- 32.3 points, 7.0 rebounds, 6.0 assists and a 29.5 PER. But it was the clutch plays and the Flu Game that put this one so high in the stratosphere.
Greatest Finals performances: No. 5
The Dream hardly came off the floor, averaging 43.1 minutes per game for the series, and his freakish stat line included 26.9 points, 9.1 boards, 3.9 blocks and 3.6 assists.
EHH NO KOBE, LEBRON, DURANT, CP3? NO MELO,PIERCE, OR DERRIK ROSE? OH
