    I would think that most people would be on Kobe's side on this one as Howard is one of the biggest prima donna's and drama queens in the league. He had a bad season last year, and the team would have been a lot worse without Kobe. Howard ran himself out of town, he didn't want to play in Kobe's shadow.

    your not a real basketball head if you say that.


    lebron had to do more this post season than any major star in recent memory in the NBA. there was no one else on his team that you could count on other than him.

    haha

    Ray Allen and the refs saved their season. Also they wouldn't have gotten that far without Birdman.

    reread what you just said.

    (an old) ray allen hit one big shot.

    and birdman. BIRDMAN.


    so one of those is the kobe to his shaq? the pippen to his jordan? the parker/manu to his duncan? the garnett to his peirce?


    dude no one else on his team was consistent AT ALL. Bron had to bring it EVERY SINGLE NIGHT. if he wasnt crushing it, they lost.



    listen to real basketball talking heads, thats coming from them, not me.

    If I recall, there are two other superstars on the team besides Lebron. Also other role players like Battier stepped up. Manu was horrible in that series and cost them games. Lebron blew game 5 at the end for the Heat with a bunch of turnovers. Game six was messed up.

    You both make good points, Check Two is right about the other players, as Wade Stepped up big in game 4 four, and Ray Allen did nail a big three at the end of game six, and Bosh made some key plays in game six's overtime imo, and the two none foul calls in overtime of game six does make you question the refs, however with that said you never know what would have happened if the fouls were called, and also Parker did miss a key free throw at the end of the fourth quarter, and the fact Duncan was on the bench at the end of the fourth was a big mistake, because if he was in Bosh probably does not get the rebound, so the fact Allen even got a chance for the three was Pop's fault, and you can probably only count on one hand how many mistakes he has made in his coaching career, but this one was a big one that am surprised is not talked about more, because it did cost the Spurs the title, and although am a Spurs fan am not sure they can make it back to the finals unless they get younger.

    With all that said above, James was the main reason the won the title again this year, and without him am not sure the Heat win more that two games, so I understand where whitey is comin' from.

    The Cavs offered Andrew Bynum a two year contract I heard worth $12 million; this is after he played zero games last year, and really does not look like a person that would even put in 75% into playing basketball, and this is why players take their talents to South beach, because Dan does things like this!!!!

    Will the Lakers cut World Peace?

    Also, Howard said he would have stayed with the Lakers if they would have hired Phil Jackson as the Coach last season, but instead they hired Mike; a hiring I still find to be a dumb one, and so far Jim Buss is the opposite of what his father was, and if he ends up being the one that runs the team over Jeanie L.A will became a Clippers city

    If Howard would have repeated another season like this past one, they should be glad he left.

    "superstars" did they play like super stars? bosh had like 16 rebounds through the first 5 games of the finals. he was the starting center/pf. is that what superstars do?

    DWAYNE WADE went back to being dwayne wade. did he play like a superstar?

    i dont care what they are getting paid, or what they've done in the past that is irrelevant.

    And you proved my point with the game 5 thing. Lebron had a bad game and they lost because he wasn't perfect.

    those are good points. but is that what a superstar is getting paid 20 million dollars a year to do? play good in one game?

    yes mike miller had a good game, shane had a good game, ray had one ect. but they are roll players thats the definition of what they do, show up big once in a while.

    the point is not Spoelstra or Lebron knew who on any given night besides Lebron would bring it. That makes it very hard on them. Its basically a roll of the dice every game.

    Which is what makes what Bron did more impressive.


    Im not a heat fan, i just respect greatness, athletically anyways. As a person Bron is kind of a gaylord. Jordan was an OG on an off the court. But what you feel personally about the dude doesn't change the fact he is the best basketball player in the world and is the main reason the heat are 2 time champs.

    Default Odom goes bonkers on paparazzi

    lmao...this mofo destroys the pappers ride with a metal bar then tosses all his shit into the street before proceeding to pick it back up & toss it into his trunk...& the Fakers wanna re-sign him? lol



    The weirdest part? Right after Odom finishes destroying stuff, a womanówho definitely saw all the action, you can see her car slowly creep across the screenógets out of her car and asks for a picture and he obliges. Like, he doesn't even bat an eye when she gets a little pushy and tries to take his hat off.

    Default Nets Set to Pay Highest Luxury-Tax Bill in NBA History

    With the new tax threshold set at $71.748 million, the Nets are now primed to pay about $98 million next year, triggering a tax bill of about $75 million. That would be the most any team has paid since the league instituted the luxury tax in 2002-03.

    Rasheed Wallace is now an assistant coach of the Pistons and they also signed Chauncey Billups. Some people want them to pick up Richard Hamilton too.

    Default Monta Ellis Signs with Mavericks 3yr/$30 mil

    Sources told ESPN.com that the Mavericks and Ellis have agreed to terms on a three-year deal thatódepending on where Dallas ends up in terms of salary-cap space as it works on a number of dealsócould rise to as high as $30 million.


    The deal, at the minimum, will be in the $25 million range, sources said.







    The 27-year-old Ellis turned down $11 million in June, choosing instead to opt out of the last year of his deal with the Bucs and test free agency.

    Ellis simply never got comfortable in Brew City. After establishing himself as a deadly offensive weapon and consistent 20-point-per-game scorer with the high-tempo Warriors.
